Letters

  • 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.

  • Letter: We don’t need hate crime laws

    Hate crimes. Who would have thought that our society would stoop to this unimaginable Orwellian rubbish. I shudder to think that this farce could even be thought of as sensible, never mind being inputted into our justice system.

  • Letter: Hillary a Christian? You must be joking

    So I’m supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is very spiritual and a Christian, according to professor Jack Bass’ column in your Feb. 28 paper.
    Are you kidding me? She lied straight to the faces of the families of the four brave men we lost in Benghazi. At the returning of their bodies to our country, she told them the attack was the result of a video. On the same day of the attack, she emailed her daughter stating it wasn’t. Now she’s running for POTUS and she’s saying the families are lying. That’s a Christian?

  • Letter: Flowers, angels go missing from graves

    I think it’s really sorry when you put flowers or other things on a loved one’s grave and somebody steals them.
    I put angels on my daughter’s and husband’s graves last summer. I walk at Memorial Park most days, and I go by their graves. I missed one day, and the next day the angels were gone. So I called the office, and they said they didn’t know what happened to them. The angels were wired to the vase, so why take them?  

  • Letters: In support of the school bond referendum

    Lancaster County Education Hall of Fame

    I’ve always been proud of how Lancaster County residents support their schools.
    It’s one of the reasons I love this county and its people. We believe in the power of a good education to help children rise to their potential, and we know that quality school facilities are an important part of providing a good education.

  • Letter: Overturned truck avoiding pothole?

    Your March 11 article on the S.C. Senate’s passage of the roads bill was very informative, as was the photo of the pothole on Page 3.
    The unrelated photo on Page 2 of an overturned truck also shows what can happen because of bad roads. I think the driver may have moved to the side of the road to avoid the large pothole visible in the photo just in front of the truck.
    Politics always gets involved when it comes to the S.C. Department of Transportation. Those self-serving officials seem to have reelection in the back of their minds.

  • Letter: Trump enunciates what we mutter

    Donald Trump doesn’t need any help from me to defend himself. But some of the stuff that’s being tossed at him by those old-line imbedded politicians is getting under my usually thick skin.
    I think they’re just worried about the possibility that they may have to return to their roots and scrape around for a living like the rest of us.

  • Letter: U.S. must produce more medical staff

    We need a big suggestion box in Washington where the citizens could offer ideas for improvement. Us Americans used to depend on congressmen to do the thinking for us, but boy did we get that wrong.
    Isn’t health care among the biggest and most costly item to us and the government? I guess we need to nudge the Russians to come up with a better health care program. We just about did flips when they bested us in the space race. America was so embarrassed we just ran full speed ahead and got to the moon first.

  • Letter: March 16 deadline for most county taxes

    An important deadline is approaching for Lancaster County taxpayers – the closing of the county’s 2015 tax books, which takes place March 16. This is an important step in the annual fiscal budgeting process for Lancaster County government, as it allows those who serve on county council, the school board and the town and city councils to determine how much tax revenue they will have to work with as they finish their 2016-17 budgets.

  • Letter: Van Wyck moves to incorporate

    After three years of work and serious threats to its existence, Van Wyck has decided to incorporate as the town of Van Wyck.
    The incorporation proposal was submitted to the Secretary of the State of South Carolina on Monday, March 7, by the Incorporate Van Wyck Committee after approval by a community meeting Saturday, March 5.
    To our surprise, the Secretary of State’s office indicated that there was a 15-day notice requirement that could not be waived. We were instructed to bring the incorporation proposal back for filing on March 22.
