  • Writer thanks council for supporting 4-H Club

    I would like to express my gratitude to Larry Honeycutt and Lancaster County Council for stepping up to support the 4-H Club of Lancaster County. Lancaster County has participated in the 4-H Club for many many years and this organization has been extremely benefical for our youth and community.

  • Every vehicle should have a spare tire

    There should be a law on the books that no vehicle should be allowed on the road that does not have a spare tire. While this sounds like left field reasoning there is no chance that such a law would ever pass the Legislature because the automobile industry would have it killed it in its tracks. A requirement to provide a spare tire would eat away at the industries profit picture.

  • Belk appreciates community support

  • Dream Team thanks speedway and its drivers

    My earliest memory of the Lancaster Motor Speedway was going with my father in his El Camino to the pit to watch the races.
    I can sit with him now, and he laughs at the many stories he remembers working as a pit crew member for his friends Don and Tommy Crump. Let’s just say they were beginners. It’s a timeless memory I share with my father, and now, many years later, I have begun to create the same lasting memories with my son.

  • Tough economic times in the past, future

    On Aug. 14, 2000, the rock band Rage Against The Machine performed outside of the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles.
    “Our democracy has been hijacked,” lead singer Zack de la Rocha said as he addressed the crowd at the beginning of the show. “We are not going to allow these streets to be taken over by the Democrats or the Republicans.”
    Back then, people complained about $1.80 gas – nothing compared to recent lows of $2.88.

  • Individual opinions and feelings vary

    In Rudy Schmidt’s letter to the editor, “Stop believing lies, follow the truth,” in the June 29 edition, he throws  Democrats into the boiling oil and equates them to the politicians who brought about the Civil War.
    A history professor at the University of North Carolina said most Americans ignore the 150th anniversary of that war except Southerners.

  • Justice system allows criminals free rein

    Every time I pick up The Lancaster News, I see another murder, another home invasion, someone getting robbed and beaten, sexually assaulted or burglarized.
    The pathetic (one of many) part is – it’s the same person doing the crimes over and over again. We can’t blame the officers who make the arrests – they’re doing their jobs. They’re getting them off the streets and putting them behind bars.

  • Stop believing lies, follow the truth

    In John 1: 4, John writes to a friend in church and says: I could have no greater joy than to hear that our people and children are following the truth.
    Our own people are not looking or following the truth today.
    Letter writer Sheila Bickford claims civil rights as a Democrat supported policy.
    The DNC website in its “Our Party Our History” section also starts out with a lie by saying, “For more than 200 years our party has led the fight for civil rights...”

  • Thieves steal pet, but not my heart

    This letter is directed to the thieves who broke our hearts by taking our beloved pit bull, Zebo.
    While the thieves stole our pet, they cannot take our hearts.
    The thieves also broke Zebo’s heart and soul.
    Zebo, I love you – a love that cannot be taken.
    To the thieves: What gives you the right that you can take what does not belong to you?

  • Letter writer speaks from experience

    I would like to give thanks to all who were named and those not named who helped in the arrest of Hell’s Angels. It takes persistence and great determination to accomplish what you all have accomplished. I realize that it is not over and that there will be more court hearings and testimonies to be given.
    I also want to encourage you all to not give up. Your courage, unity and faith got you this far. They will carry you through to the final verdicts. There are people praying for all of you. The number of prayer warriors is off the charts.
