• Does the flag still wave?

    Long after the Battle of Gettysburg, the Stars and Bars have been forced into Neverland. I guess some will rejoice as the flag is retired to a dusty corner of history or, more likely, to a forgotten saga of this nation’s growth.

    In the future, some will remember the nine who lost their lives at the hands of a deranged zealot. Others will remember the man who committed the crime. Time will cloud the issue for many and, for some, there will be more dragons to slay.

  • Don’t wipe out our history

    Don’t wipe out our history

    I agree with W.B. Evans regarding his letter on the Confederate flag.

    Our country’s history is being wiped out of the history books. When are the American people going to realize what is happening to our country? We need to take our country back.

    Whatever people don’t like, they want to remove it and hide their heads in the sand and say it never happened. Next, they will be telling us the Holocaust never happened, and I do believe there are many out there who don’t believe it now.

  • Graham may be more help in getting IL its own post office

    Recently, our U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-5) responded to a request by me for a post office in our community of Indian Land with a letter to the newspaper editor. Mulvaney noted he did not want Congress involved in postal decisions and that it needed to spend time taking care of our “economy, the debt, national defenses, health care and highways.”

    Thank you for your work in all these failed programs in our great country.

  • Only unity can prevail

    They were in a church to worship Jesus, not knowing they had let a maniac in their doors. Demons walk on this Earth and this man was truly a demon. He tried to start a race war, but instead he brought us closer.

    I would just like to say I am praying for the families of these nine victims and also, for the family of the man who did this terrible act. May the comforter be with you and bring you peace.

  • Do you truly love your neighbor?

    Reading the two letters, “Is the end in sight?” and “America following Rome’s path,” in the July 8 edition of The Lancaster News warranted the following observations.

    In his letter, W.B. Evans states the Ten Commandments, given by God, are being ignored and biblical sins brought the downfall of ancient nations.

    While Christianity is the predominate religion in this great country, why are the Ten Commandments the primary go to when referencing God’s laws? Christianity arose from the life and death of Jesus.

  • Canty left lasting impression on others

    We are always losing the people who are dearest to us, and I suppose the ones left behind are the ones God is not finished with yet.

    There are many good Samaritans out there, but I want to tell you of one I think of often because of her desire to help people.

    That person was Patricia “Pat” Canty, who has gone on to be with the Lord. Pat helped so many people in her social work. I thought of her going to church when she was not feeling up to par.

  • Is the end in sight?

    Does Independence Day sorta make you stand back and think?  For generations, Americans have revered those brave men who got America started.

    Now the politically correct have determined that our forefathers were a rotten bunch of slave holders and full of other vices.

  • America following Rome’s path

    With the two unconstitutional decisions handed down from the insane Supreme Court, this country is now firmly on the road that Rome took centuries ago.

    Chief Justice Roberts may just as well change his name to Ginsberg for his asinine logic pertaining to the health care act.

    Justice Scalia, on the other hand, was spot on by stating, “Words can no loner have meaning if an exchange that is not established by a state is “ ‘established by the state.’ ”

  • Lancaster could learn from Chesterfield

    Chesterfield County built a animal shelter that cost more than $900,000. The residents there spoke up and the county listened. It is a modern up-to-date facility that has more than 80 dog runs and a cat house. Chesterfield County has less than half of the animal intake as Lancaster County.

    Lancaster County Animal Control has asked the county for a simple pole barn with kennels for many years, but has always been told the county ran out ot money.

  • Our culture is being poisoned 

    The Confederate Flag was removed  from a Civil War Monument in Columbia  because it was claimed to be a symbol of hate for the shooter of nine people in a Charleston church. The truth is that the flag was used as a symbol of hate when it was used for a hundred years by the racist Democrat Party wing known as the KKK.

    Hate for everything American is still growing.  Rush Limbaugh said the progressive, illiberal left would next attack the American flag. Even Fox News did not like or believe this statement.
