Letters

  • Letter: Those to our north, living in Camelot

    Some of us poor Southerners figure most of the residents of Camelot, aka Indian Land, hail from places way off.  We know they are accustomed to having just about everything like the area they so desperately abandoned for Carolina’s sunny shores.
    To be honest, most folk are welcomed, but it sorta sticks in our craw when we hear such a commotion about the lack of refinements they gave up to come South. Now some of you residents are ready to “incorporate.”  Which roughly translates to “doing it your way.”

  • Letter: Is America destined for biblical flooding?

    I have been doing some serious thinking.
    According to our maps, the world is over two-thirds water. Here lately it is raining so much that it is flooding.
    When Jesus flooded the world in Noah’s days, it was for 40 days and 40 nights.
    I know Jesus’ promise of a rainbow assures us that the world will not be flooded again, and Jesus cannot lie.
    But could America see mass flooding?

  • Letter: Hillary Clinton will be education president for all

    Hillary Clinton will be the education president we need. She knows that the Zip code you’re born in shouldn’t be the deciding factor in the quality of your education. Every child in our country deserves a world-class education.
    Hillary has been working to make our school system better since her days in Arkansas, and now she’s trying to make college affordable for every student across the country. With her plan, no student will have to borrow money to get a higher education and pursue his or her dreams.

  • Letter: The whole world has gone nuts!

    Bruce Jenner, a man, is “woman of the year.” Transgender. We have Rachel Dolezal, a white woman, who identifies herself as black. Transracial.
    Then there is Jewel Shuping, who blinded herself so she could be in tune with her body. Transabled. Then there’s Gary Matthews, aka “Boomer,” who believes he’s a dog. Trans-species.

  • Letter: Thanks for donating to holiday campaign

    I am truly grateful to the community for generously supporting the abused and neglected children and adults served through the Lancaster County Department of Social Services.
    Because of your endless efforts, the Lancaster County Outreach Project Annual Holiday Giving Campaign and FALLing into Winter: Coat Drive were both a complete success. Generous contributions have given our clients not only material items but also the gift of kindness.

  • Letter: Wilma Faile's skunks, Round 2

    Thank you for putting my letter in the paper. I’ve had so many calls, and everywhere we go someone talks to us about it, and they have asked if we have seen any more.
    So, this is my reply.
    The week of Christmas, the house was decorated and I was baking and making candy for church and friends. No smell of skunks.

  • Letter: Thank law officers for their sacrifices

    Every day, thousands of South Carolina law enforcement officers go to work to serve and protect the citizens of our great state. We are so accustomed to having them on duty in our communities that sometimes we neglect to adequately thank them.
    In 2015, three S.C. officers made the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty. The number of S.C. law officers killed on duty stands at approximately 335.

  • Letter: Mayoral candidates, campaign with honor

    Coming up Feb. 23 is the election for Lancaster mayor.  Several candidates have registered and are now campaigning.   
    We the people of Lancaster take great pride in our city and desire to see progress that will help increase employment, lower crime rates, and bridge race and community relations. We believe that progress will help change the negative image of our city. It will help attract major industry and people here. We are Lancaster, and proud of it!

  • Letter: Too little Christmas spirit on Main Street

    Kudos to the city of historic downtown Lancaster Main Street on their beautiful Christmas light display. They really went all out.
    Where’s the Christmas spirit in downtown?
    McAdenville, don’t worry.
    Bah humbug!

  • Letter: Lancaster was lucky to have Ellen Dean

    March 14, 1949, was my 16th birthday.
    My parents gave me a party in the elegant Rainbow Room of the Ellen Dean Hotel.
    What a special occasion. Lancaster was lucky to have this facility. How sad to see it go. Thanks for the memories.
