• Letter: Let’s unite behind our law officers

    My heart goes out to our sheriff’s office and the city police department.
    These guys need our prayers. They have a dangerous job.
    I used to call them and pray for them on the phone, but the guy who crippled me threw my phone and broke it.
    Sheriff Barry Faile and Police Chief Harlean Carter do a wonderful job. I ask the county and city to unite in prayer for all of these officers.
    I love you guys, and may God protect and bless you all.

  • Letter: Dismissing Noble’s assessment of Donald Trump’s prospects

    Some of the items in Phil Noble’s column “Hey Trump, you’re a loser” need to be addressed.
    First is his distasteful line about America’s “mythical glorious wonder years of the past.”
    America has many things in her past that made her great. America was one of the first, if not the first, to outlaw slavery. America manufactured her own products, which lasted, but now everything doesn’t last because it’s made in China. We were the major factor in winning World War II.

  • Letter: State should fix S.C. 160 traffic

    I am writing in regards to the traffic situation that occurs nearly every morning at the intersection of Calvin Hall and S.C. 160.
    Since Movement Mortgage opened its doors in the spring, the traffic at that intersection has been a nightmare. Routinely, the cars are backed up almost to U.S. 521 in one direction and often farther than that in the opposite direction.

  • Letter: Thank you all and God bless

    I want to say thank you and God bless you to a number of people.
    Mr. Jerry Blackmon, thank you for giving the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department $50,000 for body cameras to help them and all of us have security.

  • Letter: Spoon-counting time in American politics

    I’ll make this short and sweet. When I think of Hillary Clinton, a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson comes to mind.
    “The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.”
    I think that about sums her up.

  • Letter: An occasion to thank an officer

    I have written twice in the last 20 months to praise our officers for using restraint when controlling violent encounters that could have turned deadly.
    Now I have the pleasure of complimenting Deputy Tammy Wolf of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office for her clear thinking and decisive actions that prevented the death of a comatose woman.
    Thank you, Deputy Wolf. I feel secure walking the streets and driving the roads of Lancaster County because I know that if I have an emergency, you and your fellow officers will be there for me.

  • Letter: Our hijacked media are doomed

    The morality of all the media died years ago. Our media was hijacked by far-left liberal progressives. The only good news is most of them will be history with the invention of the internet.
    Outlets like the New York Times are failing financially. They like all the rest will implode on themselves. You can only favor one side for so long. Go look at MSNBC and CNN’s ratings. At the bottom.

  • Letter: Political corruption has metastasized

    James McManus talks of anti-Hillary “drivel” in your Aug. 10 paper. What a joke! He should have read his own article. Talk about drivel!
    I’d list all the lies and corruption of his idol Hillary, but why take up the whole paper. Besides, one who doesn’t want to see, can’t be made to see.
    There’s plenty of government people who belong in jail, but what’s keeping them out is called corruption. It has metastasized into the norm in both parties. It’s people with blinders, like Mr. McManus, that let it keep growing.

  • Letter: On topic of lies, don’t forget Bush

    Editor’s note: This letter responds to L. Brooks Walker’s Sunday column headlined “Listen as Clinton parses words on Comey’s e-mail testimony.”

    Brooks Walker may be onto something. I think he has figured out that politicians lie.
    I never had considered this, so I googled lying politicians and got 26,600,000 hits.
    He listed what he considers lots of lies and half truths told by politicians. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that all his examples were Democrats.

  • Letter: Dr. Walker, it’s time to move on

    Editor’s note: This letter responds to L. Brooks Walker’s Sunday column headlined “Listen as Clinton parses words on Comey’s e-mail testimony.”

    As I read yet another article by L. Brooks Walker in the Aug. 14 edition of The Lancaster News, I begin to wonder is he truly a guest columnist – it seems as though he writes a column per week –  a right wing nut with too much time on his hands, or simply someone with an ax to grind with Democrats and Hillary.
