Letters

  • Protect Americans from mutinous government

    The radical left in politics and mean-stream medias are manipulating Americans on proposed changes in laws to outlaw our rifles, shotguns, pistols and accessories.
    Their ill-promoted campaigns are to deceive Americans that all hunters, sportsmen, sportswomen and others will not be affected by their legislation; but only to eliminate victims of all guns.

  • Knights of Columbus thank community

    The members and their families of the Knights of Columbus Council 14765 of Our Lady of Grace parish would like to thank the residents and businesses of Indian Land for your contributions and generosity for 2012 Operation HOPE campaign. With your help, the Knights exceeded their goal of $2,300 and collected more than $8,000 for people with intellectual disabilities.

  • Resident asks officials to drive on Taxahaw Road

    I am writing in response to Barbara Phillips’ letter about the bad conditions of Taxahaw Road. I also live on Taxahaw Road. I live about seven miles beyond her house. The conditions there are even worse.  We live on this road and we have to travel it.
    I have lost two hubcaps because of the potholes. Hubcaps are not cheap.
    Our county can build million dollar buildings but not make our roads safe to travel on.
    We, the people who live on this road, are taxpayers, too. I encourage our officials to come and take nice, leisure drive down Taxahaw Road.

  • Community makes project a success for area seniors

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the churches that donated Christmas gifts to the Shoebox for Seniors project in December 2012. This is a project sponsored by the Lancaster County Council on Aging. Donations were made by the following churches, Beaver Creek Presbyterian, Church of the Good Shepherd Senior Group-Happy Hearts, Covenant Baptist, Eastside Baptist, First Baptist, Hopewell Methodist, Springhill Baptist and Zion Methodist.
    Thanks again to all the caring people who made this a beautiful Christmas for a lot of senior citizens.

  • Writer applauds Mulvaney for his stance

    I would like to respond to Shirley Bickford’s recent letter about compromise. Compromise means both sides giving up some things and getting some things. I keep up with the goings-on in Washington and it looks to me like President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress want Republicans to roll over and play dead so they can continue spending us in oblivion.

  • Lage letter: We must deal with our destruction of morals

    This letter is in response to Mathew Taylor’s column, “Letter to my congressman,” in the Jan. 2 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Why he was given such a big platform, I don’t know. But clearly this letter is a far left view of the cause of the tragedy in Connecticut.
    Blame the guns. Never hold a person responsible for his or her actions is the liberals’ way.
    A weapon could sit on a table and never hurt a human until a human touches it. All your suggestions would not have prevented this from happening.

  • Bledsoe letter: Second inauguration wasteful

    I voted for President Barack Obama twice. I saw nothing wasteful about his first inauguration. Quite frankly, I truly believe all minorities and citizens who voted for him deserved the pomp and ceremony that was the first inauguration. The United States’ people, as a whole, should have come together at that moment in our history.
    However, this second inauguration and the degree of monetary wastefulness has gone way too far, considering the dire economic situation status of our country.

  • Column ‘complete distortion of reality’

    You recently published a guest column, “What’s next? Taxing the sun?,” by Franklin Whittlesey Sr. in the Jan. 6 edition of The Lancaster News. That column is a complete misstatement of facts and a total distortion of reality.
    You should be embarrassed to publish anything so patently, religiously biased and beyond the pale with respect to what we should be doing to protect our world so that our children and their children will not be living in a nightmarish environment.

  • Rep. Mick Mulvaney lacks the ability to compromise

    This letter is in response to U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney’s account of a recent town hall meeting published in The Lancaster News on Dec. 16, 2012.
    Mulvaney said a constituent asked him a fairly straightforward question: Why won’t you compromise with the president? Instead of answering her question directly, he responded with a question.

  • Writer disappointed in McGriff

    I had the opportunity to attend the recent swearing-in of Lancaster County Council members. As it is the first time that County Council will have a Republican majority, it was a historic moment.
    While I was encouraged by the general show of unity among council members, I was disappointed to see Council-member Charlene
    McGriff’s remarks in The Lancaster News, where she viewed Lancaster as a small and rural county.
