  • Ferguson letter: Lancaster High’s reasons to Relay

    Everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
    In case you didn’t know, Relay for Life is a 12-hour festival that raises money for the American Cancer Society. The event is 12 hours because cancer never sleeps.
    Through the fun and games, lives are honored, survivors are lifted and memories are shared.

  • Hayes letter: McCain concert a fun night for residents

    Those of you who like R&B, contemporary rock and a little country rock missed a treat if you weren’t at Bradley Auditorium on Oct. 16. Edwin McCain never disappoints. He even has some new stories. His saxaphone player is excellent and is given ample solos during concerts.
    If McCain returns to Lancaster, I hope there will be a larger audience. It’s good to support the arts, but even better to support South Carolina artists.

  • Eudy letter: I'm no newbie to Lancaster County

    In reply to W.B. Evans’ letter to the editor titled, “Northerners seek to make Indian Land like home,” Mr. Evans, you should have done your homework about me.

  • Reimers letter: Give a shelter pet a foster home

    I have followed with much interest Gloria Davey’s fight for rezoning in order to build a “no-kill” pet shelter in Lancaster County.
    We all know the county-owned shelter is always overloaded and, consequently, more than 4,000 pets are euthanized there each year. I applaud Ms. Davey and her efforts to help find a solution for this. I would stand behind anyone trying to help the pets in whatever way they could.

  • Deese letter: Harris a team player who will work for city’s District 3

    I am writing in support of Jackie Harris for Lancaster City Council District 3. 

    I have known Mrs. Harris for well over 20 years. She is a woman of integrity and dependability, as well as having a love for her community. She will work hard to make the best decisions for the city of Lancaster. She will be a team player and will work for the good of her district. Jackie Harris is the best candidate for this position and will be committed to serving the people of that area, along with helping others in this community. Please support Jackie Harris.

  • Warren letter: Writer endorses Norrell for S.C. House District 44

     

    I would like to write a letter of endorsement for Mandy Powers Norrell. I appreciate your allowing me to do so. I personally feel Mandy has more than earned a right to serve in the S.C. House from the 44th District. She has lived the same life as anyone in Lancaster. She does not come from privilege. In short, she earned everything she has. 

  • Gregory letter: Vote yes on state’s constitutional amendment

    On this year’s ballot, there is a question concerning whether the state’s governor and lieutenant governor should run as a single ticket, as do our U.S. president and vice president. As someone who has advocated bringing our state’s creaky government structure into modern times, I want to strongly encourage every voter to mark “yes” on this question. South Carolina’s governor and lieutenant governor should run together, as a ticket, and work as teammates, not adversaries. 

  • Mackey letter: Fellow church member supports Harris for city seat

     

    Over the past few years, I have grown to know and love Jackie Harris. Mrs. Harris and I attend the same church. 

    Mrs. Harris possesses every quality and trait that would make her an excellent leader for Lancaster City Council District 3. She has the communication skills and leadership abilities to become a voice for the people. 

  • Ghent letter: Democrat supports Payne for S.C. House District 44

    It’s been nearly 20 years since I last campaigned for my father, Sen. Red Hinson. I promised myself after that election that I would never get involved in politics again unless the right person came along, who represented the values I believe in and had the same love for Lancaster County that I have.  Over the last few years, I’ve watched Ryan Payne, who is running for S.C. House District 44, grow into the man he is today. I believe Ryan embodies the same commitment to Lancaster County that my father had while he served in the S.C. Senate. 

  • Smith letter: Retired SLED official supports Sheriff Faile

    By way of introduction, I am a retired assistant director with the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and I have known Sheriff Barry Faile for about 30 years, having met him early in our careers. I knew then, that with his work ethic, he was going places. I was so pleased when he ran for sheriff and am even happier to see that he has offered to run for re-election.
