  • New York, nor county has right to tell us how to live

    Back in 2012, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg passed an ordinance restricting the size of sugary drinks us free Americans can drink. This is another example of how liberals want to control how we live. That is the definition of a liberal. They know better than you and if you listen to them you will live a long and healthy life.

  • Washington needs to face realities of Democrats

    After reading Carlton B. Washington’s guest column, “Is it a great day in S.C.?” in the Aug. 11 edition of The Lancaster News, I am wondering if he actually thinks he is going to get sympathy for his cause, basically to get more cash so he can give more to the Democratic National Committee?

  • Club seeks to buy Bruin statue for LHS

    We are writing on behalf of the Lancaster High School Junior Civitans Club. As you may know, Junior Civitans is an international club which provides services to the community in which it is located.
    As Junior Civitans, we try to make a positive difference through our involvement in the community. This year, as part of our ongoing efforts to beautify the Lancaster High School campus, our club plans to purchase a specially carved wooden Bruin about 12 feet tall to be placed in the statue garden located beside the gymnasium entrance.

  • Time to stop judging and work together

    I am writing in response to John P. Lage’s letter, “Liberals are destroying American,” in the Aug. 7 edition of The Lancaster News.
    I beg to differ with Mr. Lage because it is we, ourselves, who are holding ourselves back. It is not for us to judge anyone.
    In the end, God will do it. It’s in his word. You need to take time to read the Bible.
    We, as a people, are not perfect. Jesus was the only man who walked this Earth who was and still is alive today.

  • Lage off key in his recent letter

    Well sir, I recently applauded Mr. John P. Lage Jr. for his timely comments on recent issues, but I must say he seems to be a might off key in his article, “Liberals are destroying America” in the Aug. 7, 2013 edition of “The Lancaster News.”
    I have lived four score years, served 10 years in the military during two distractions, worked 30 years in two Fortune 500 corporations and frankly I was unaware that Liberals had ruined the morals of this great nation.

  • Progressivism not destructive

    This is in response to Rudy Schmidt’s rant printed on 7/31/2013.
    Unfortunately, Detroit is now in bankruptcy. This is due mainly to population decline as a result of auto industry job losses and also political corruption, which can be found in the U.S. Congress and in many jurisdictions across the country.
    Benefits for Detroit retirees are in jeopardy, but these aren’t “free;”  these benefits were earned, as are Medicare and Social Security.
    Mr. Schmidt stated that Democrats are famous for their failed education system.

  • Overgrowth on road sides is dangerous

    The sides of our roads in Lancaster County are a mess. I’ve never seen them as bad as they are now. I was pulling out of Riverside Grocery and Grill and a car was coming off the S.C. 9 Bypass.
    The growth was so bad I could not even see the car. I called the highway department and was told the grass would be cut in a few days. That was more than a week ago and the grass is still not cut.
    The same problems exist at Memorial Park Road and S.C. 9. Other people have made the the same complaint.
    This is a really bad and dangerous problem.

  • Liberals are destroying America

    In response to Phil Noble’s column, “NC’s ‘Moral Monday’: Coming soon to SC?” in the July 28 edition of The Lancaster News, two words that do not belong on the same page are “morals” and “Democrats.”

  • CEO: Business committed to community

    Editor’s note: Mike Timani, president and CEO of Fancy Pokket Corp., sent this letter to Larry McCullough, Lancaster County Council chairman. He requested the letter be printed in The Lancaster News.
    Since deciding to establish my business in Lancaster County, I like to consider myself part of the community. For this reason, I follow the news for the area. I was surprised to read of the recent debate that took place during the July 8 County Council meeting.
