• Letter: Sheriff has proved he can do the job

    I read the March 30 article about Billy McCoy running against Sheriff Barry Faile. Mr. McCoy said Lancaster needs a change.
    Barry Faile has done a lot for Lancaster in cleaning up crime. Why do we need a change? We don’t. We need Barry Faile, who has done and can keep doing the job.
    Talk is cheap, but Barry has proven himself many times over. Our sheriff’s reputation speaks for itself.

  • Letter: Thanks to backers of Easter Bash

    See Lancaster would like to thank the community for its support of Rosie’s Easter Bash, held March 26 at the American Legion Fairgrounds.
    More than 1,500 people endured early-morning rain to come out and enjoy the annual event, which featured a petting zoo, bounce houses, face painting, photos with Peter Cotton Tail, egg hunts and more. Groups of youngsters searched for more than 8,000 eggs, including 100 “golden eggs” which offered the opportunity to take home baskets sponsored by local businesses.

  • Letter: Obama cartoon atrocious, wrong

    Editor’s note: This letter refers to a Chip Bok cartoon labeling President Obama’s visit with Cuban leader Raul Castro as “Varsity” and the Brussels terrorists as “J.V. Team.”
    The editorial cartoon you chose to publish March 25 was atrocious and wrong.

  • Letter: Mr. McCoy, can’t you keep a job?

    In Wednesday’s article about Billy McCoy running against Sheriff Barry Faile, Mr. McCoy says the sheriff has been in office too long. I would like to point out that the reason the sheriff has been in office since 2008 is because we keep electing him!
    We the people of Lancaster love Barry Faile, and we loved his father Williford, who was also sheriff for many years. They are good people who stay with their job and do not change jobs every six months or so like you often do, Mr. McCoy.

  • Letter: Thanks, Joel Hinson, for coming to the rescue

    Joel Hinson with Lancaster County Animal Control, which is now under the jurisdiction of our sheriff’s department, is a fine example of tax dollars at work.
    His prompt response to a situation that could have been sad proved otherwise. He knows and enjoys what he’s doing. That’s obvious in his smile and the pride he takes in his work. Very knowledgeable!

  • Letter: Hope on horizon for Alzheimer’s patients

    There may be thousands of men and women  living in Lancaster County who are near or over retirement age who are beginning to suffer memory loss.
    The seniors who live in Sun City Carolina Lakes are likely to have a high percentage of men and women with Alzheimer’s disease, simply because so many of us are older. African-American men and women of every senior age are especially vulnerable to the development of Alzheimer’s dementia.  

  • Letter: Both parties want a back-room deal

    We have learned from this year’s election cycle that we may have two parties but their goals are the same. They want to stay in power even if it means surrendering victory to the other side.
    Forget about the candidates and look at the process happening in both parties.

  • Letter: Thanks for your help keeping warming center open this winter

    On Jan. 4 the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless opened the doors of the Lancaster Warming Center. This was the first time that this service was made available in Lancaster County, and we were grateful to have an outpouring of support from the community to help us provide a hot meal and a warm place to sleep at night for homeless individuals here.
    We could not have done it without the countless donations and the many hours put into it by our amazing volunteers.

  • Letter: Our hearts break for victims of Brussells terrorists

    It is heartbreaking to see so many innocent lives taken, and we stand with the people of Belgium today. Terror groups and Islamic terrorists value death above life, and we have seen the manifestation of their values over the past six months in San Bernardino, Paris and now Brussels.
    We must redouble our efforts to build partnerships around the world to tackle the scourge of terrorism, and to keep innocent people everywhere safe.

  • Letter: Faile has been a great sheriff

    Barry Faile, in my time, has been one of the best sheriffs Lancaster County has had.
    He is just like his father, Sheriff Williford Faile. He has done a lot in cleaning up Lancaster County.
    He is a good Christian man and treats people with dignity and respect. I pray for him and his force.
    I think the world of Barry, and hope he remains sheriff of Lancaster County. God bless Barry, his family, his force and the citizens of Lancaster County.
