Letters

  • Writer challenges Jedson’s letter

    It was appropriate to publish Michael Jedson’s letter (and super pile of propaganda,) “Facts, without the whining and ranting,” on Super Bowl Sunday. There is enough no-fact information there to tax even Snopes’ capability. Even Phil Noble could not match this pile of falsehoods.

  • Beware of falling gas prices

    As I am, I’m sure you’re excited about falling gas prices. But I have to warn you, it won’t last long. And it will cost us, all of us more in the end.

  • Community makes Shoebox for Seniors a success

    I would like to give a special thanks to all of the churches, schools, organizations and individuals that participated in the Shoebox for Senior’s project in December 2014.

    This project, sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging, continues to grow more and more each year. The gifts that we receive are sent out to our home-delivered meal clients and if there are enough gifts we also give gifts to our group dining clients.

  • A different view of Lancaster on Christmas Day

    My sons and their families visited me before Christmas Day, so on Christmas morning I decided I would eat at a local restaurant.

    I went to several – JoMars, Gus’, Arby’s – they all were closed.

    The North Main Shopping Center was empty. There was only one car in the Walmart parking lot.

    Then I saw where both McDonald’s and Hardee’s were open.

  • Your help makes bicycle ministry a success

    We truly thank each and everyone of you who played a part in bringing so many smiles and miracles to 78 children and 38 families this past Christmas through Gonzie’s Miracle Bike Ministry.

    Each year, we experience and personally witness many touching stories to share.

    I try to the best of my ability to treat folks fair and honest and to have open arms whenever there is a need to meet.

    Take this one, for example: Before Christmas, one family member who came by the shop and “wanted” five “new” bicycles.

  • Correction

    Indian Land resident Cecil Sexton said in his Feb. 4 letter that Lancaster County did a “lousy job” on some road repair at the corner of U.S. 521 and River Road.

    Lancaster County Administrator Steve Willis said the county is not responsible for either road.

    Jeff Catoe, Lancaster County Public Works director, said the cut was a “utility cut” and that the S.C. Department of Transportation told the utility provider that the stone placed in the cut was unacceptable.

  • ‘Lousy job’ on road repair

    ‘Lousy job’ on road repair

    I would like to let it be known that Lancaster County made some kind of repair at the corner of U.S. 521 and River Road.

    When the workers were done, they just filled the hole with gravel and did not fill the hole all the way.

    There are holes big enough to knock a hubcap off, and there are edges where they cut the road that could bust a tire. They did a very lousy job and I think it should be redone.

  • Facts, without the whining and ranting

    This article is in response to the Brooks Walker’s column, “Obama opens himself up for criticisms,” in the Jan. 16 edition of The Lancaster News and John P. Lage Jr.’s column, “Noble twisted facts to defend Obama,” in the Jan. 18 edition. Both articles were crticizing President Barack Obama.

    Shame on both of you for misrepresenting facts.

    Here are the facts:

  • Going to school can be deadly

    One Wednesday morning I couldn’t sleep and I knew my Lancaster News would be in that little orange box at the end of the driveway. So, I slipped on an old coat and took a plunge into the darkened morning.

    The moon seemed to be hiding behind some clouds, then I noticed the flashing yellow caution lights of a school bus coming to a stop on the curbside southbound lane of old U.S. 521.

    Why the only traffic stopping was directly behind the bus. All other lanes were in race mode. But kids will dart into traffic, they’re so young and trusting.

  • IL Masons help support Children’s Home

    The mission of the Lancaster Children’s Home is to provide a safe, stable, structured, nurturing, home-like environment for abused, abandoned or neglected children within Lancaster County and the state of South Carolina.

    The home survives because of donations from private individuals, companies and other organizations. I am proud to say that the Indian Land Masonic Lodge is one of many organizations that support the home through financial donations.
