Letters

  • Northerners seek to make IL like former homes

    My regrets to letter writer Pat Eudy, who must endure the tragedy of  living in Indian Land and  be represented by only one area councilman. Makes one want to throw more tea overboard, doesn’t it?
    Gosh, I recall the days when we traveled to Charlotte and had to ride past those overgrown farm lands with only Steele Hill AME Zion Church and its historical arbor, Mr. Pettus’ store and cotton gin, the residence with the large windmill and, last but not least, the pony farm bordering the state line.

  • Sheriff Faile is always ‘square with you’

    Sheriff Barry Faile has brought the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office into the 21st century with hard work and creative ideas.
    Faile came into office in 2009 in the midst of a dismal economy with unemployment at a record high. Idleness and financial needs greatly increased the crime rate, but he and his staff have been quick to solve crimes and bring the offenders to justice in record time.
    Faile is well qualified to be our sheriff. When I spoke with him recently we talked about his accomplishments and his goals.

  • Garris ‘exemplifies excellence’

    I am happy to recommend Tamara Garris for re-election to City Council in District 4. I have had the pleasure of knowing her for 20 years. She is a hard worker and gets the job done.
    Tamara has proven her leadership skills over the past four years. I have enjoyed reading about her online in The Lancaster News. It makes me feel good to read about someone doing something to make a difference in her community, instead of all of the killings going on in my hometown.

  • Will America flourish or perish?

    Americans are being forced to make a critical decision of survival on our precious nation. Will Americans humble themselves and become more self-sufficient, while separating themselves from government’s demands and privileges, thus allowing and endorsing our nation to again flourish within a free and open constitutionally-supported economy?
    As legislated primarily by Capitol Hill Democrats, our nation’s out-of-control government spending is nearing the brink of a total fiscal disaster.

  • Visitors praise center and residents

    Dear Mayor Joe Shaw,
    I was ecstatic to learn of the new Native American Studies Center in your town. On Thursday evening, Oct. 4, my family and I made the more than 100-mile trip to Lancaster for the grand opening.
    It was all that we could have asked for and more. It is second to none and everyone involved should feel proud.  Thank you and your fellow City Council members for investing in this endeavor.

  • Garris has proven leadership abilities

    It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tamara Garris for re-election to City Council to represent District 4. I have known her for 11 years.

  • Obama inherited a problem he helped create

    This letter is in response to Mary Reid’s letter, “Ability to vote is a privilege,” in the Sept. 23 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Liberals continue to believe ideas known as lies that are contradicted by the evidence in history for ideological reasons. They prove that they are so selfish they will jeopardize the public good just to keep from admitting they are wrong.

  • Why we should re-elect our sheriff

    For the first time anyone can remember, we get two choices for sheriff in the Nov. 6 general election – Barry Faile, our current sheriff, and Scott Case, a police officer from Great Falls.

  • Newspaper needs to explain health-care act

    This is in response to Shannon Catoe’s letter, “Catoe defends her facts,” in the Sept. 30 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Ms. Catoe, you may have read the health-care act, but obviously you did not read my letter. In it I stated that I have not talked to doctors, etc.
    I stated that I would like the newspaper to do an in-depth report and get facts, not just opinions and tell the whole story.

  • Woman pleads for information about man’s death

    As you have all heard, I lost my soulmate due to a hit-and-run or a very brutal attack on Sept. 8, 2012. This was not only a devastating loss for me, but also to my nine innocent children.
    Do you know children are a gift from God – a gift many people do not have the joy of experiencing. However, I am blessed. Great Falls is one awesome little town. Whoever says anything different needs to come speak with me.
