  • Here’s why I’m voting for Joyce Knott

    Considering what has transpired in Congress over the past two years: the country’s credit degrade, nearly defaulting on our debt obligations, paralysis on getting any bills passed (on the budget or otherwise), no willingness to compromise due to lobbyist influence and little evidence of Congress reflecting on how all this affects citizens and the country as a whole, I believe it is time for a change this November.

  • Proud to be a ‘radical’ Republican

    I am proud to be a Republican because of our past accomplishments and what we are trying to accomplish today.

  • Size of papers reflect sour economy

    I am fortunate to have a subscription to our hometown newspaper. Clicking through the latest edition I ran across comments regarding the online version. One reader was no longer able to subscribe due to financial difficulties and wondered why The Lancaster News doesn’t offer free access like some other area newspapers.

  • Children appreciate Greek Week

    Pan-Hellenic Greek Week was a success. The youth who attended expressed their appreciation by saying how much they enjoyed the programs and activities. They said they had fun and were grateful for the information shared during the week. More than 80 children participated during the weeklong activities.
    On Monday night, the children heard from presenters and speakers – Johnnie Dewese, retired teacher from Lancaster City schools; the Rev. AnThony Pelham of Faith, Hope and Victory Church; and the Rev. DeMarkus Thompson, a military recruiter.

  • Democrats put hypocrisy in practice

    Lately there have been several examples of  blatant display of Democrat hypocrisy. One was when the Massachusetts Democrat Convention started on June 2. On page 14 of the convention program under registration and credentials was a statement that a photo ID was required before entering the Massmutual Center.
    The second example was when Michele Obama’s book, “American Grown,” went on sale in Washington, D.C. On June 12, she held her first book-signing. Again, those attending the book-signing were required to have a photo ID.

  • Democrats’ solution is to spend other people’s money

    I don’t think I would be proud to be a Democrat today.
    In January 2007, when Democrats took over full control of Congress, unemployment was 4.6 percent and the debt just over $6 trillion. Within a year, both numbers started escalating rapidly and have worsened ever since.
    Fifty percent of medical costs today are the result of obesity, smoking and litigation.

  • Letter writer praises David Demby

    I saw an article on David Demby, “Passion, love for EMS a career calling,” in The Lancaster News. I want to say I am so very proud of what he has done with his life. He has grown into a great man who cares for others.
    I remember David when he was a child and his mother was so sick. He and his brother would come with their mother to my beauty shop on South Avenue. They were such good boys then. I am so very glad to know he is still a good guy, who loves his fellow man and wants to help people in need.
    May God bless you always, David.

  • Don’t install more stoplights

    I believe I see foundations being prepared for more stoplights on S.C. 160 at the Barberville Road intersection. I hope this is not the case.
    The stoplight signal previously installed at the Hensley Road/S.C. 160 intersection causes a needless, major back-up on S.C. 160 during heavy traffic hours. If one is installed at the Barberville Road/S.C. 160 intersection, it will just add to the traffic issue and possibility of wrecks.

  • IL resident proud to be a Democrat

    I am proud to be a member of the Democratic Party because of what the party stands for.
    u Civil rights – Every American should have the opportunity to fully participate in our society without fear of discrimination.
    u Affordable health care – No one should go bankrupt just because they get sick. Every American should have access to basic health care. Democratic presidents have pushed for health reform over the years and will continue to do so.

  • Red Rose Festival had something for everybody

    All we can say is “wow.”  
    I hope all the Red Rose Festival organizers have recovered from the two-day event.
    It was obvious to us that a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort had gone into the planning and production of this event. Those who made it happen did a great job and by the time it was over, I’m sure they were happily exhausted.
