  • Come out and support the Warriors basketball

    I have followed Indian Land High School Warriors sports since the late 1960s, playing high school football in the late ’70s, so I am very passionate about their success. As far as I know, there has never been a men’s team sport to win a state championship. I am proud of the girls’ nine state softball championships, but it is past time for our boys’ team to hoist a banner.

  • Whittlesey: Bickford’s got to be kidding

    In response to Sheila Bickford’s Carolina Gateway letter, “Mulvaney lacks ability to compromise: You’ve got to be kidding!
    Before you make a statement like that, you have to recognize what Washington, D.C., is. Beyond all the statues, pillars, monuments and columns are the lobbyists and special interest groups, whose only job is to extract as much taxpayer money as possible for the interest group they represent.

  • The reason the Second Amendment is unalienable

    S.C. Rep. Phillip Lowe-District (D-60) is to be roundly applauded for introducing legislation to permit teachers and administrators to come to the armed defense of our children. As laudable as representative Lowe’s bill is, it is regrettable that legislation must be proposed to secure the right to protect children in the first place.
    In Washington, D.C., debate will focus on so-called assault weapons, high capacity magazines and guns that look particularly dangerous. Libertarians realize this debate will miss the point of the Second Amendment entirely.

  • Family wants justice served

    On March 31, 2009, Lamario Demond “Flip” Ford was murdered in Lancaster County. Until this day, those individuals who took his life have yet to be sentenced.
    His family would like some answers so they can finally have some closure.
    Numerous calls have been made to the solicitor from the mother of Lamario Ford. The only answers they are willing to give are that they will get to it soon and the trial date keeps getting moved.

  • Protect Americans from mutinous government

    The radical left in politics and mean-stream medias are manipulating Americans on proposed changes in laws to outlaw our rifles, shotguns, pistols and accessories.
    Their ill-promoted campaigns are to deceive Americans that all hunters, sportsmen, sportswomen and others will not be affected by their legislation; but only to eliminate victims of all guns.

  • Knights of Columbus thank community

    The members and their families of the Knights of Columbus Council 14765 of Our Lady of Grace parish would like to thank the residents and businesses of Indian Land for your contributions and generosity for 2012 Operation HOPE campaign. With your help, the Knights exceeded their goal of $2,300 and collected more than $8,000 for people with intellectual disabilities.

  • Resident asks officials to drive on Taxahaw Road

    I am writing in response to Barbara Phillips’ letter about the bad conditions of Taxahaw Road. I also live on Taxahaw Road. I live about seven miles beyond her house. The conditions there are even worse.  We live on this road and we have to travel it.
    I have lost two hubcaps because of the potholes. Hubcaps are not cheap.
    Our county can build million dollar buildings but not make our roads safe to travel on.
    We, the people who live on this road, are taxpayers, too. I encourage our officials to come and take nice, leisure drive down Taxahaw Road.

  • Community makes project a success for area seniors

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the churches that donated Christmas gifts to the Shoebox for Seniors project in December 2012. This is a project sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging. Donations were made by the following churches, Beaver Creek Presbyterian, Church of the Good Shepherd Senior Group-Happy Hearts, Covenant Baptist, Eastside Baptist, First Baptist, Hopewell Methodist, Springhill Baptist and Zion Methodist.
    Thanks again to all the caring people who made this a beautiful Christmas for a lot of senior citizens.

  • Writer applauds Mulvaney for his stance

    I would like to respond to Shirley Bickford’s recent letter about compromise. Compromise means both sides giving up some things and getting some things. I keep up with the goings-on in Washington and it looks to me like President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress want Republicans to roll over and play dead so they can continue spending us in oblivion.

  • Lage letter: We must deal with our destruction of morals

    This letter is in response to Mathew Taylor’s column, “Letter to my congressman,” in the Jan. 2 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Why he was given such a big platform, I don’t know. But clearly this letter is a far left view of the cause of the tragedy in Connecticut.
    Blame the guns. Never hold a person responsible for his or her actions is the liberals’ way.
    A weapon could sit on a table and never hurt a human until a human touches it. All your suggestions would not have prevented this from happening.
