Letters

  • Open letter to every S.C. House member

    You have a golden opportunity to prove to your constituents that you do want to represent them, and that you do care about what they think.
    The recent vote on the Constitutional amendment gives you that opportunity.   

  • Help fellow Americans who are having a difficult time

    Christ Life Evangelical Ministries will be conducting its fifth outreach operation to Owsley County, Ky., on Nov. 14-18.
    Several different projects will be going on while they are in Kentucky:
    u Jehovah-Jireh (the Lord will provide) will distribute food to those in need and work with Owsley County Outreach Corp., assisting it with its backpack program.
    The goal of the backpack program is to make sure that every child has food while school in not in session.

  • Hospice makes wishes a top priority

    No one likes to think about death and dying, but it’s something everyone has to face eventually. There’s an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. It’s Hospice Care of South Carolina.
    November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care that Hospice Care of South Carolina provides locally.

  • Boy Scouts help those here struggling to survive

    I am writing in response to Jay Evan’s letter “Boy Scouts should help Sandy Victims,” in the Nov. 7 edition of The Lancaster News. While I understand the concern for those affected by the recent events in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and would applaud any local efforts to help, this should not  be done at the expense of or in lieu of helping our local folks who are in need.

  • Northeast needs help; so does our community

    I am writing in response to Jay Evan’s letter “Boy Scouts should help Sandy Victims,” in the Nov. 7 edition of The Lancaster News. In his letter, Mr. Evan was upset that the food collected by the local Boy Scouts would be used locally and not distributed in the Northeast to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

  • Judicial system gives criminals slap on wrist

    The men and women of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and the Lancaster Police Department put their lives on the line everyday. They are at risk everytime they put on their uniforms. They do their best to protect and serve our community. But it doesn’t make any difference because the judicial system just gives criminals a slap on the wrist.

  • Military veterans face higher risk of ALS

    A few weeks ago, studies found that National Football League players are at greater risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Papers ran stories about the news and rightfully so. But with Veterans Day approaching on Sunday, Nov. 11, how many of us know that a much, much larger segment of our population – military veterans – also is at greater risk of Lou Gehrig’s disease?   

  • Williams Financial thanks sheriff’s office

    We would like to thank the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office for its prompt response to the robbery at Williams Financial Services on Oct. 18. The officers’ expertise and professionalism led to the arrest of the robbers the same day.
    We applaud your dedication and attentiveness regarding the safety and well-being of the town of Kershaw.

  • Boy Scouts should help Sandy victims

    On Saturday, those of us who reside in Indian Land found a brown bag with a paper stapled to the bag attached to our mailbox post. The letter was from the Palmetto Council Boy Scouts of America (York District) asking to have non-perishable food items, personal hygiene, baby food or diapers to benefit York District residents who need assistance left in the bag for collection next Saturday, Nov. 10.

  • Hammond letter: Mother’s poem still relevant today

    My mother-in-law, Avis Rowell Hammond, who died Feb. 25, 2012, lived to be 100 years old.
    She had five sons and two daughters. Her first three sons, Max, Lloyd and Bobby were all in the Navy at the same time during the Korean War, and all were on the same ship, which was very unusual in that day and time.
