  • We’re headed for worse disaster under Democrats

    As I read the front page story about the jobless rate on the front page of the July 29 edition of The Lancaster News, it made me think about the recent McClatchy newspaper survey regarding job losses.
    It shows that Democrats have had a 62 percent higher job loss than Republicans under Obama. So much for Democrats helping the middle class and minorities.

  • Williams cycles 545 miles in fundraiser

    Arvan Williams, a 1981 graduate of Andrew Jackson High School, completed his first AIDS/Life Cycle Ride.
    The fundraiser was held June 3-9 to bring awareness and assist those infected or affected by the disease.
    Along with 2,200 other cyclists representing 44 states and 16 countries, Williams cycled 545 miles, beginning in San Francisco and ending in Los Angeles, Calif.

  • Pay attention to what is going on in the world

    How does a righteous nation get a Barack Hussein Obama as president? Very simple.
    We have become a nation of greedy, covetous, other god-worshipping immoral people. This will leave a mark that will take a long time to remove or get over.

  • Evans letter: If you can do a better job, then go for it

    Well, I read another reader’s opinion about our Lancaster County Council members. Seems like we have a bunch who love to spend taxpayer money on building and renovation.
    For goodness sakes, we gotta make like things are going great. How in the world are we gonna bring in new companies if we look worn and shabby?
    The way crime is increasing, it’s a good thing that we got us a fancy new judicial  square right smack dab in the middle of our historical district.

  • Miles letter: We need to help officers

    Our sheriff and police chief are doing a wonderful job. But they need help from citizens. We need to watch out for each other. If you see something strange or out of place in your neighborhood, let them know.
    Lancaster is having a rash of home invasions. Residents need to fight back. We cannot let drug dealers and gangs take over. Watch out for your neighbor, as well as yourself. Women should not go anywhere by themselves. We need to check on the elderly and make sure they are OK.
    We can’t leave everything up to officers. We must do our part.

  • Wilkenfeld letter: Public not informed about health-care act

    I was raised on New York City “street smarts” until I moved to Charlotte 30 years ago.
    I have two college degrees, read the New York Times 365 (days a year). I subscribe to Forbes, Business Week and the International Herald Tribune online.
    At the ripe old age of 74, I can tell you that the biggest mistake the president made was not getting the U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington, D.C., to print a question-and-answer booklet (on the health-care act) and mail it gratis to all Americans.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    I think everyone deserves affordable health care. The idea of parents being able to keep their children on their insurance until age 26 is great. And not being denied health insurance because of pre-existing conditions is also a plus. I am very pleased that it was passed.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    Act needed, just like Social Security
    First and foremost: Health-care providers are for-profit organizations. The health act was needed! It is a first step. I have not read the bill in its entirety, therefore, I cannot say yea or nay about this bill as a whole. There are good and bad points. Remember, when this was passed, it was to be a work in progress; changes are expected.

  • Opinions on health-care act

    Presented to Congress on a “Vote ‘aye’ for this so you can have a chance to read it” basis, this bill was passed by Congress without thought or reflection. To my knowledge, no thorough, systematic, complete review of what this bill will and will not do has ever been presented to the American people.

  • No traffic fatalities in county during Fourth holiday

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Lancaster County for enjoying our nation’s Independence Day celebrations without experiencing a highway fatality within our county.
    It is very rewarding to see your cooperation through utilizing safe driving practices, which can save your life and mine.
    Unfortunately, not all our friends and neighbors practice safe driving habits. Speeding, seat-belt violations and DUI are all things that troopers dealt with over the holiday period.
