  • Case ‘loyal public servant’

  • Nebraska family looking for information on relatives

    We are looking for some information on a local war hero and would appreciate any help from readers of The Lancaster News. We think someone who has knowledge of Lancaster and local family history would be able to help us.
    My family is from a cattle ranch in Western Nebraska called the “Red Rose Ranch” that was founded in 1887. Since there is a lot of prairie grass but no roses in Western Nebraska we believe there is a connection between our family and Lancaster “The Red Rose City.”

  • Funderburk works hard for her community

    The people of Kershaw County should be proud of their S.C. House District 52 Representative Laurie Slade Funderburk.
    She is a representative who works very hard for people in her district, but she also works with the people in other districts, not from her district.
    I called her about a problem a family in Lancaster County was having. When the father of this family needed to get some papers signed from an inmate, so he could get funeral arrangements for services the next day, she stepped in to help. She was a very big help to that family.

  • Coy can help get economy moving again

    Voters in S.C. House District 44 have three choices in November to replace their outgoing state representative, but there’s one candidate who stands above the rest – Joseph Coy.

  • Powers Norrell will ‘shine’ as a legislator

    I am writing on behalf of Mandy Powers Norrell, candidate for the S.C. House District 44 seat in the upcoming election. Mandy has roots in our area and understands the people’s needs now and for the future.

  • Don’t overlook bow-tie wearers

    I appreciate Greg Summers column regarding the color of the ties sported by the presidential candidates, but I must point out a glaring omission. Not once did he mention the type, shape or size of the tie, only the color.

  • 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.
