  • 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.

  • I believe in American blue collar workers

    Exactly 46 years ago, I chose not to go to University of South Carolina, but to go to Midlands Tech to begin my journey and become a tool and die maker. I come from a long line of hard-working farmers and carpenters. My grandfather and father taught me at a young age how to build and repair things with my hands. I have never, for one minute, regretted the decision to become a tool and die maker because it allowed me to learn a skill that will always be needed.

  • Letter writers should cite facts, not hate speech

    t is not too often that I read The Lancaster News anymore, but I still try to read the hometown paper every now and again to get an understanding of what is going on in my community. I especially enjoy reading the letters to the editor. I believe that it is an important part of free speech to have your thoughts published in a space that is designed for you to voice your opinion.

  • More people need to be removed from office

    This is to remind everyone and especially Phil Noble, president of the new S.C. Democrats, that more firings are needed and let’s not stop with Gov. Nikki Haley. I agree heads should roll for this ID theft blunder, including the ones who ignored the warning signs months ahead.

  • Don’t forget homeless pets at Christmas

    ’Tis the season and we are all rushing around buying gifts for family and friends and trying not to forget anyone. When you are in the pet aisle of your favorite store and as you reach for that Christmas stocking full of toys and treats for that special family member, please stop and think a minute about the homeless pets being housed in your local animal shelter.
