  • 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.

  • Letter: Best of luck, Chief Carter

    I would like to thank retiring Lancaster Police Chief Harlean Carter and wish her a blessed life.
    I called her a lot and prayed for her department, and also Sheriff Barry Faile and his department.
    I also would like to thank all county and city officers for their hard work and to ask the public to pray for them. God bless.

  • Letter: Act of kindness deserves thanks

    In Walmart on Nov. 26, I was behind a friendly and nice lady with a cart loaded with merchandise. I remarked to her that she had really good luck shopping.
    When I started to pay for my purchases, the cashier advised that the lady before me had paid for mine. I was so surprised and so appreciative. But I didn’t get to thank her.
    To this wonderful and kind person, I wish to say a big thank you! You made my day, and I will definitely pass it on to make someone else very happy. Thank you!

  • Letter: Coach Mayer deserves some credit

    I do not know Indian Land coach Mike Mayer. Nor do I know Van Wyck resident Jimmy Fox. And I know little to nothing about football.
    But that does not matter. What does matter is that Mr. Fox, the “Voice of the Warriors,” spoke out and gave readers some very interesting and notable facts. Clearly, the facts that he stated in Friday’s Lancaster News guest column, “Mayer a good coach,” cannot easily be disputed.
