Letters

  • Define job training our residents need

    John Realmuto’s letter in April 13 edition of The Lancaster News seems like someone who has jumped on the “Beat Down Lancaster” bandwagon. I gotta admit those “We are Lancaster” yard signs are tacky. Makes me want to add a line, “What you see is what you get.”
    Lancaster will rebound, in time. I think Mr. Realmuto has a good suggestion for eduction changes to equip our people with new skills. However, he doesn’t offer any suggestions as to what type of training.

  • Treasurer grateful for the support she’s received

    I am grateful for the support I have received. I’m currently serving as treasurer after filling the unexpired term of Mr. R.E. “Dick” Rowell, who died in January 2011. I have to give thanks to Lancaster County Council and the Lancaster County legislative delegation for the letters of recommendation supporting me to fill the unexpired term as treasurer. I would also have to thank Steve Willis, our county administrator, for working with me to make it possible.

  • Writer: Coy right man for House seat

    ince 2008, the time has gone by quickly. The highlights of these past four years were history in the making as things that occurred were unprecedented.
    More people came out to vote in 2008. This year is no different. Lancaster County is having local elections and good, hard-working people are rolling up their sleeves and taking on the task of campaigning to work hard for us in Lancaster County and in Columbia.

  • Writer praises school’s lip dubbing video

    I had the pleasure of watching the YouTube lip dubbing video shot by Lancaster High School students. What a great job they all did.
    This was an indepth project that I am sure took a great deal of work by the LearnTV production class to pull off. It was an enjoyable experience watching the cooperative effort of teachers, administrators, support staff and students all working to make such a fun, feel-good video.
    If anyone reading this has not seen the video, please got to YouTube and put in the search box: Lancaster High School SC Lip Dub 2012.

  • Time to put America on life support

    In his March 21 letter, “Iran No. 1 country for exporting terrorism,” Ronald Hopkins is under the impression that I think Iran should be allowed to have nuclear weapons. I discussed a peaceful nuclear program in my letter, “It’s time for us to repair the world,” in the Feb. 3 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Writer: Call Lancaster ‘last of Wild West towns’

    After reading the April 1 story about “Brooklyn Avenue – now and then,” I did not see the slogan “We Are Lancaster” on the official tour of Brooklyn neighborhood. I guess the Chamber of Commerce will come up with another silly slogan or should we get rid of Lancaster Councilwoman Charlene McGriff for making Lancaster look bad in the press?

  • Insurance impossible for those who don’t have jobs

    I am writing concerning the proposed health care law that will require all Americans to buy insurance. This is a low blow from our president and government. Tell me how they can demand a person buy insurance if they can’t create jobs for us to afford to pay the premiums?
    America has forgotten the people who made America what it is today. We need jobs then we can afford insurance. We don’t need any president demanding us to do anything that we could do ourselves if we had jobs and could put people back to work.

  • Writer appreciates instructors’ assistance

    I would like to thank Chuck Small, Justin McClellan, Chris Nunnery, D. “Toothpick“ Ray and Randy White for taking so much of their valuable time to participate and assist in a program designed to facilitate the evacuation of students from a school bus in case of emergency. Their vast knowledge and skills helps to improve and develop our evacuation procedures.
    Again, I thank you for your generous donation of time and your dedication to the safety of our school children.

  • Writer will miss Evans’ columns

    When I read that W.B. Evans was not going to write any more “Remember When” columns, I cried.
    Mr. Evans, you made us remember our past and how wonderful it was without television, texting and cell phones.
    We weren’t aware if we were rich or poor because we were having so much fun. We were poor and I didn’t know it because I was happy. We did not have the technology children have today. We made our own toys and were glad when we got a new dress made out of flour sacks.

  • Writer asks God to remove dark cloud from county

    What can we do to stop the killing? We must be united in prayer for only our God can stop it.
    Women, do not go out alone. Have someone with you at all times. Gangs have taken over the streets in Lancaster. Our sheriff and police chief are doing a good job, but a dark cloud is hanging over our city and only God can stop the murders in our county and city.
    We must pray like never before. I pray that God takes the dark cloud away from our county and city. That he stops all the murders and protects our officers and let them go home to their loved ones.
