  • Letter: Thanks for donating to Outreach Project

    As we head into 2017, I want to thank everyone who contributed to the Lancaster County Outreach Project’s Annual Holiday Giving Campaign this year.
    Because of your generous contributions, the campaign was a complete success.
    We received more than $7,000 from 120 businesses, churches, organizations, agencies and individuals, which allowed LCOP to provide gifts to children for the holiday, assist with the Foster Care Holiday Party, and make the Annual Toy Giveaway possible. More than 400 children received help.

  • Letter: Prayer for our law enforcement officers

    Myra McCant’s letter about the “fat mirror” was very funny.
    I have written many letters in honor of our police. I did not know Myra’s son Brent McCants, a deputy who was murdered in 1992, but I’m sure he was a good man because I know Myra and her other son Billy Dale.
    Our police have a dangerous job. They look after us. We also must watch out for them, because they have families also.
    I don’t expect to be here much longer, but I want to leave a legacy that my letters helped save one police officer.

  • Letter: Sen. Scott: Why I support Jeff Sessions

    Today I am announcing my support for Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general of the United States.
    The Department of Justice is charged with upholding some of the most basic tenets of our Constitution, as well as laws that were forged through the blood, sweat and tears of generations of Americans, including many people of color. As our nation endures racial and societal unrest like we have not seen in a generation, I know that whoever serves as our nation’s attorney general must be committed to ensuring that those laws and tenets are fully enforced and protected.

  • Letter: Sharing Christmas with family is always the best gift of all

    At Christmas dinner, our granddaughter’s fiancé asked everyone around the table to tell him what our favorite Christmas present had been. When my turn came, I said something like, “I can’t say. Maybe I haven’t had it yet.”

  • Letter: Take Noble up on his gun ideas

    I avoid arguing about guns because the exchanges usually generate a lot of heat and little light. But I feel compelled to respond to Phil Noble’s column this past Sunday.
    I am in my mid-70s, married, with an adult daughter. I retired to South Carolina four years ago after 40 years as a forensic psychologist. I have never raised my hand to another human being in my adult life.

  • Letter: Electoral college has worked fine

    Well, so much for the smooth transition from President Obama’s administration to President-elect Trump’s.
    First Lady Michelle Obama stated that there is “no hope” in reference to the new administration. President Obama said he’ll keep an eye out for Donald Trump going against American traditions. What a comedian Obama is.

  • Letter: I’ve lost 3 jobs to outsourcing

    Regarding your Dec. 9 article about CompuCom moving its headquarters to Indian Land, at first I was glad to see that 1,500 jobs are coming to the county, but after reading further in the article, my gladness quickly turned to sorrow.
    Why? One word in the fourth paragraph – outsource! My jobs have been outsourced three times in the past 16 years, so am I supposed to be glad, excited or thrilled that this company will help to “outsource” my current job?

  • Letter: Volunteers needed for warming center

    Lancaster’s warming center will open Jan. 2, and the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless needs volunteers to help operate it.
    LACH has been working hard to expand services for our homeless and to raise awareness around issues of homelessness in our county, and we would like your help in doing so.
    The winter months are a time when the most vulnerable members of our community are most vulnerable to the elements. We will need much more community support moving forward, and we are offering many opportunities for the community to get involved.

  • Letter: Give Trump chance to make changes

    In response to John Aves’ letter “Democrats and Republicans unite” from last Friday, it is not racist to simply dislike someone else’s actions. It is not unreasonable to expect leaders in elected positions to keep our borders safe and respond to the growing threat of terrorism, homegrown or otherwise.

  • Letter: Democrats and Republicans unite

    A new generation of prejudice against African-Americans and immigrants has been revived through Donald Trump’s constant vitriolic hate speech all across America. Trump has employed the power of his millions to pay for this revival.
    The generation of American children that was taught to reject racism is now challenged to bring this dangerous revival to an immediate end. We must reject everything that Donald Trump represents. He has taken advantage of that sector of our population, which for a variety of reasons feels left out of this generation of American success.
