• Letter: I have the laziest gun in the world

    Today, I placed my gun on the table right next to my front door. I left its magazine beside it, then left it alone and went about my chores.
    While I was gone, the mailman delivered the mail, the guy who mows my lawn came to cut my grass, a young lady walked her dog down the street, and a delivery truck delivered a package.

  • Letter: John Weaver’s presentation is an embarrassment to county

    Mr. Melton, your editorial in last week’s papers gave me such pleasure that I have not felt in years.
    County Attorney John Weaver sent an email stating, “My job is to make Council members look good, not otherwise.” Well, his unprepared, unprofessional, thrown-together, not complete, nor concise, fragmented and confusing PowerPoint show regarding Ansley Park was an embarrassment for Lancaster County.

  • Letter: Will miss W.B. Evans’ columns, would buy a book of them

    I am so sorry to hear of the death of Mr. W.B. Evans. I have enjoyed his columns for many years.
    Has his family ever thought of publishing his columns in a book? I certainly would be interested.

  • Letter: Environmental worries persist about Haile Gold Mine site

    I am so glad that the worst thing Indian Land residents are currently worrying about are their roads.
    We here on the other end of the county located closer to Haile Gold Mine have our own concerns. The difference between ours and theirs lies in a much more all-encompassing, potentially harmful environmental impact, such as what Oceana Gold did to Brazil.
     Oh, I know, they must not have all the regulations we have here.  But what we do have are unconcerned politicians.

  • Letter: Still backing Hillary Clinton? Makes absolutely no sense

    If this wasn’t reality, I would have thought I was watching a comedy.
    President Obama has officially announced his backing for his fellow progressive, Hillary Clinton, for president. He stated that there is no one more qualified to be president than her. If that is so, then we all need to be lemmings and march off a cliff together.
    Not only did she lie to the public about her e-mails when she was secretary of state, but she lied under oath to the congressional hearing. A perfect perjurer match for her slimy perjurer husband, Bill.

  • Letter: Mr. Evans’ columns made me his friend

    Mr. W.B. “Bill” Evans was my friend, even though we never met face to face. I met him through his writings in The Lancaster News.
    What a beautiful spirit and soul he had. His words encouraged me to give my opinions on things. You could tell he loved Lancaster and the USA.
    I will miss my friend. I will miss his spirit and his love of life. He touched a lot of people, made our lives better and put smiles on our faces with his “Remember When?” columns.

  • Letter: Will miss reading Mr. Evans’ columns

    I am so sorry to hear of Mr. W.B. Evans’ passing. I looked forward to reading his “Remember When?” columns.

  • Letter: Mr. Evans inspired many in Lancaster

    W.B. Evans was one of the best storytellers Lancaster has had. He inspired a lot of people as he did me, and he will remain in our hearts.
    Mr. Evans is a legend here for his stories. He is telling his stories about Chesterfield Avenue to Jesus now.
    W.B., we love you. God bless you, your family and your Lancaster News family.

  • Letter: Officers showed courage, restraint

    Lancaster Police Department Sgt. Dustynn Burlingame deserves public praise for the courage and restraint he demonstrated by not discharging his weapon at a suspect who presented a handgun while being detained.
    Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Carroll also deserves credit for assisting Sgt. Burlingame in the apprehension of the subject.
    Their actions shortly after midnight on Sunday, June 26, brought to mind a saying I heard years ago: “We sleep peacefully at night because brave men and women are patrolling our streets and protecting our homes.”

  • Letter: Thanks for staging Charlesboro Fourth

    I want to thank all who were in the Charlesboro’s July 4th parade. Thanks Kenny Hinson and Johnny Arant for the flags on the posts, and everyone else who helped.
    The music was provided by the Sims family. Thank you to them and all who provided food, nice and drinks. And I want to thank Stacy Faile for a beautiful fireworks display.
