Letters

  • Letter: A bad week in S.C. for P.C. establishment

    After all the press hoopla about the “coveted endorsement” of Gov. Nikki Haley for Marco Rubio, the results are in.
    With the not-so-covert assistance of the Republican National Committee and the state GOP chairman, in addition to Sen. Tim Scott, Rep. Trey Gowdy and assorted other Republican muckety-mucks, plus the well wishes of her friends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, Nikki could muster barely 22 percent of the voters for her candidate to “stop Trump.”

  • Letter: Treasurer seldom stops working, parents say

    This year, Lancaster County voters will choose a number of people who will serve them as county officials. One of those on the ballot will be county Treasurer Carrie Helms, who happens to be our daughter.
    We see the job she does first-hand in ways many people don’t.

  • Letter: McCusker’s comments need grain of salt

    I am proud to see that the once-rural part of our county growing so rapidly. Yes, I am old enough to remember its previous life.
    Matt McCusker’s comments on the Opinion page Feb. 17, “IL residents must act to protect their future,” should be taken with a grain of salt. A casual reader might assume that our county council is to blame for the congestion in Indian Land (aka Camelot).

  • Letter: 2nd Amendment simple, absolute

    I’d like to know what part of “shall not be infringed” do people not understand? I am sick of the know-it-all leftist elitists telling me we should have more “sensible gun regulations,” and the lemmings that go along with that.
    Read the Constitution. We have a right to bear arms. We have a right to protect ourselves, not only against intruders in or on our property, but against a tyrannical, ever more intrusive, right-abolishing government.

  • Letter: Democrats do not respect Constitution

    Michael Jedson’s Feb. 17 letter was interesting.
    He made the case for the hypocrisy of the Republicans who “say time and time again that the Constitution is their Bible” and go after President Obama when he issues executive orders that usurp the legislative powers given to the Congress by the Constitution. But now those same Republicans oppose the Constitution in saying that Obama should not get a chance to carry out his Constitutional duty of picking the successor to Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

  • Letter: Consider the source on Walker’s columns

    Dr. L. Brooks Walker has become a regular guest columnist in The Lancaster News. In his most recent column bashing yet another Democrat, he alludes to the fact that Bill Clinton “was busy disgracing himself.” My grandfather always told me to consider the source.

  • Letter: Thanks, Rubenstein, for saving monuments

    I was 68 years old before I actually saw the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in Washington. They took my breath away. These are only monuments made of stone, but there was a feeling of awe as I stood where millions before me have stood to honor these presidents.

  • Letter: Worse than Hillary? You’re kidding me

    Michael Jedson’s rebuttal to Dr. L. Brooks Walker’s Feb. 7 column is embarrassingly bad. It doesn’t confront any of Dr. Walker’s facts about Hillary. All it does is bring up three of the GOP’s frontrunners and states something of no importance about them.
    He then ends with, “You may not like Hillary, but there are far worse choices here.” So, far worse than all the garbage that Hillary has done, which Dr. Walker highlighted, is someone who is an insulting self-promoter, or lastly couldn’t balance his checkbook.

  • Letter: Does anyone want to know the truth?

    Does anyone in this generation really want to know the truth? My Bible tells me: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” If you want to be free, read God’s word.

  • Letter: McKenzie will set vision for our city

    I believe Paul McKenzie is the best candidate for mayor.
    During a recent discussion of the upcoming election, someone suggested that it may be important to elect a candidate that already has had previous experience in office. While I applaud anyone with the willingness to serve in public office, I do not believe that this alone is the litmus test for election to the position of mayor.
