Letters

  • Liberals have issues with truth sensors

    I would like to respond to Parker Quinlan’s letter, “Letter writers should cite facts, not hate speech,” published in the Dec. 9 edition of The Lancaster News.
    The letter writer does not cite any facts in his opinion piece, just opinion, which is fine. It lets us know how that the liberal left does not need any facts to support opinions. He claims to collect information scientifically and values truth more than anything. No support for that statement is given.

  • Embers’ show raised $3,000 for charities

  • Give maximum sentences for child abusers

    I am writing to share the outrage I felt as I read the story, “Father gets one year for incest” in the December 12, 2012, issue of The Lancaster News.  
    How can it be that a man who committed such a dreadful crime be given a suspended 15-year sentence to just one year?
    As a teacher and therapeutic foster parent, I have witnessed first-hand the challenges and devastation that face children who have endured child abuse from a parent – the one who is suppose to love and protect them.

  • Evans letter: Angels stepping up with helping hands

     

    The Lancaster News is filled with depressing stories at a time when we should be happy and filled with a spirit of helping others. Just when things seem so bleak, I happened to become aware of angels in our midst.

    The service station was very crowded when I pulled up to the pump. The car to my left was in pretty bad shape and the occupants looked as if they had seen better days, too.

  • Harward letter: Republicans offer solution to fiscal cliff

     

    The United States is nearing an economic collapse, leaving more than $16.3 trillion of debt to our children, their children, etc., with accounts payable to China, Saudi Arabia and others.

    President Barack Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats continue to demand more tax increases now, with promised spending reductions further down the road of future years. Capitol Hill Democrats never deliver except in cutting our U.S. military budget.

  • Bledsoe letter: Time to get troops out of Afghanistan

    I am writing to express my extreme anger and frustration at our president, cabinet members and Congress members for continuing to dwell on the four Americans who were killed at the embassy in Benghazi. 

    First, these so-called representatives and government lawmakers made this tragedy a political stumping ground during the presidential campaigning even after Ambassador Chris Stevens’ father told the press that his son would not appreciate that.

  • Wilt letter: City opts out of county’s new E-911 system

     

    According to information presented at the Nov. 26 Lancaster County Council meeting, at its Nov. 19 meeting Lancaster City Council voted to retain its own 911 center and will not participate in the E-911 Center being developed by the county. 

  • Cheney, Deen and Steedley letter: Thank you, Lancaster County Council!

    Two weeks ago, members of the Lancaster County Council voted to adopt a smoke-free indoor workplace law that takes effect on March 1, 2013. 

    The major voluntary health organizations would like to thank council members for their efforts to protect Lancaster County workers, residents and visitors by  adopting this law.

    The U.S. surgeon general, our nation’s top health official, determined there is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. 

  • Joplin letter: Hospice grateful for community support

     

    On behalf of the staff at Hospice Care of South Carolina’s Lancaster office, I would like to thank the Lancaster community for a successful Open House and Community Forum in November in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. 

  • Roscoe’s wins an unbelievable accomplishment

    You will not believe it, but it’s true. Coach Johnny Roscoe lead his 3AA Northern Guilford football team to its third straight state championship Saturday night at the Wake Forest Groves Stadium. Many Lancaster supporters traveled to Winston-Salem to witness this historic event.
