  • Letter: Treasurer offers e-check option

    Part of keeping the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office taxpayer-friendly is coming up with new ways to make customer service faster, friendlier and more cost-effective.

  • Letter: A nation of geniuses can’t figure stuff out

    I have come to the conclusion that there are too many “geniuses” in our society today. The word is used practically for everyone.
    Hollywood is filled with them. Just ask anyone who acts about their co-stars or directors and you get, “He’s a genius.” I’ve heard it for sports stars, politicians, artists, Wall Street workers, singers, etc. You name the category, and the title has been used.

  • Letter: Here’s how NFL players could make a real difference

    President Trump should not have involved himself in the NFL players’ protest. In doing so, he became part of the problem instead of part of the solution.
    I personally disagree with the means of player protest, but I support their right to peacefully protest. None of our citizens should be required to honor the flag. We are not North Korea.

  • Letter: No need for protection against disagreement

    “I don’t agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

    Professor Eric P. Robinson’s thoughtful and well-written guest column last Friday brought those historic words to mind. Unfortunately, they appear to have been forgotten or disregarded in the current social-political debate.

    Some people, notably on our college campuses, seem to believe it is not only their right but their duty to shout down and/or intimidate those whose views they find offensive. 

  • Letter: County needs reliable public transportation

    Please help me understand why Lancaster has no reliable public transportation for the residents to get around.

    Yes, we have the Lancaster Area Ride Service, operated by the Council on Aging, but they only come to certain parts of the county on certain days.

    Do you not realize that you have single mothers that need to get their children to appointments, senior citizens that may have appointments and people in general who want jobs or have jobs they can’t get to because they have no reliable transportation or family?

  • Letter: Noble wrong about SPLC

    Phil Noble talks of hate groups in his Aug. 25 column. He cites the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a great vehicle for fighting hate.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center did good work in the ’70s, but now it’s just a front organization for the progressive left.

    In reality, the SPLC probably has every conservative group on its hate map. If you don’t believe in the ideology of the left, then you’re more than likely on their map. Don’t give the SPLC a dime of your money.

  • Letter: Let’s pray for law officers

    I read Myra McCants’ Sept. 15 letter about her son Brent, a sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty 25 years ago.

    This beautiful lady has been through a lot, but she still keeps her faith and love for God.

    Myra, my heart goes out to you. And I ask everyone to pray for our sheriff’s deputies and our sheriff, Barry Faile, and for all police officers everywhere.

    I am 68 years old. Barry and his dad, Williford Faile, are two of the best sheriffs in my time.

  • Letter: Rosemont is a bad choice for Indian Land post office location

    My husband and I are in complete opposition to the proposed location for an Indian Land postal facility for numerous reasons.
    ◆ This facility should be more centrally located in the area it is supposed to serve. Somewhere off U.S. 521 between S.C. 160 and Sun City Carolina Lakes is a more suitable location.
    ◆ A facility of this size – 15,000 square feet – should not be placed at the entrance of a residential neighborhood. The aesthetics alone are detrimental.

  • Letter: Reader has questions about moving library to Springs Block

    The possibility of the county council moving the public library to the Tucker Building on Main Street raises many questions.
    One matter left unsaid in the Lancaster News article is what will happen to the current library building and property on White Street. Will another county department move there? Could it be EMS?

  • Letter: Thanks to all at Heath Springs fest

    Thanks to all who participated and attended September Fest 2017 in Heath Springs on Sept. 16. Only because of you, it was a great success! Look forward to seeing you next year at September Fest 2018.
