Letters

  • Letter: We elected Trump to reverse course

    This is a response to Christine Taylor’s Dec. 22 letter criticizing President Trump and defending Barack Obama.
    Does she not know that we elected Trump to get rid of Obama’s failed policies? His health-care plan was a rip off from the start. The health industry has seen profits more than double, at our expense.
    The homeless and poor she speaks of are not covered under the Affordable Care Act. They are in Medicaid. I agree with her that we need to help those truly in need.

  • Letter: Tie on red vest, help Red Cross

    Often during the holidays, one stops and looks back over the past year. For me, it’s about reflecting on what it truly means to be there for others in need.
    Seeing how much people throughout the country went through this year and seeing how the American Red Cross was there, time and time again, makes me proud to say that I support our local Red Cross.
    The torrential floods in 2015 soaked us. In 2016, it was Hurricane Matthew’s turn. This year, Irma stormed in. Every time, the American Red Cross was there.

  • Letter: President lied about tax bill

    Thank you, Mr. Trump, for again lying about how great the tax bill would be for the middle class.
    You and Mr. Ryan gave the middle class a lump of coal as a Christmas present.
    We need to drain the president from the Washington swamp.

  • Letter: Paying water bill way too difficult

    This letter concerns the Lancaster County Water and Sewer District offices. My bill is due the 15th of each month. Not the 14th, not the 13th. The 15th.
    This is mentioned because one month the 15th was on a Sunday, and when I attempted to pay my bill Monday I was told there would be a late charge because I was late and that it should have been paid the 13th (the day they were open).

  • Letter: Praying for peace this Christmas

    I am writing because I am praying that this Christmas there will be peace in the world in God’s time.
    I think about all the hatred, which I believe is being fueled by President Trump. Some say he knows he is doing this, while others say he doesn’t realize it. Let’s get real people – he knows. But only God can change a hardened heart. I believe this is what’s wrong with him.

  • Letter: Facts to consider in assessing VTIL

    Just a few facts to set the record straight and provide a proper perspective to those of us living in the proposed Town of Indian Land.
    ◆ After almost two years of hard work and thousands of volunteer hours – totally self funded – Voters for a Town of Indian Land submitted the Town of Indian Land incorporation package to the S.C. secretary of state last May.
    ◆ The state’s Joint Legislative Committee for Municipal Incorporation did not hold the first of two hearings on the plan until Aug. 18.

  • Letter: SCCL HOA fees are not out of line

    I reside in Sun City and read with interest Merrel Wilkenfeld’s Dec. 8 letter “Sun City dweller is feeling gouged.”
    Anyone who purchased a home here should never have assumed the HOA fee would remain the same. I do not think that $42 in 11 years is out of line. Ours is one of the cheapest around, and we get a lot for our money.
    However, if you do not utilize the amenities, perhaps you did move to the wrong neighborhood.

  • Letter: Help by standing up for abused kids

    The season of giving is upon us, and there is no better gift than giving back to your community.
    Being a volunteer with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem Program allows you to give a short amount of your time to an abused and neglected child in Lancaster County all year round. The joy you will receive knowing you made a difference in the life of a child is priceless.

  • Letter: Tanner to vote yes on IL incorporation

    I am continually being asked my position on Indian Land incorporating. I am voting yes.
    The last straw for me was Lancaster County Planning Commission changing its meeting hours to 6 p.m. That was the last slap in the face from Lancaster County. This change was made so Indian Land residents will find it almost impossible to attend the meetings and speak out for our community.

  • Letter: Both parties have backed predators

    Sen. John Conyers is stepping down from office after living off the taxpayers’ dime for over 50 years. Now we will have to pay his pension, which probably makes my pension look like a tip.
    How about not only Congress, but their staff using taxpayers’ money to settle lawsuits against them? I never thought to ask for that at my union contract meetings.
