Letters

  • Letter: Immigration brings America strength

    This is a response to Bruce Miller’s recent articles on restricting immigration.
    Let’s look at what has happened to America in the last 50 years.  America is the land of opportunity, and you get what you make out of it. Opportunities are not far scarcer today, as Miller writes, they are just different.
    Did a company named Apple exist 50 years ago? Obviously, someone saw an opportunity, and those ideals exist for those who are fortunate enough to get to America.

  • Letter: Trump displays wisdom

    Like most young men growing up, I had to endure a bunch of advice from my father.  To tell the truth, I should have listened carefully and followed his direction.
    Now, I sort of settle in and “play back” some of his words.  Let me share this one with you, “Son, don’t elect a poor man (or woman) into office, cause they will steal you blind.”  That really hit home. There is a man running for president who appears to be quite well off and is spending his own money to get elected.

  • Letter: A sincere thanks to White Oak

    This letter is to express my sincere appreciation to the administration and staff of White Oak Manor Nursing Home of Lancaster. Their professionalism, expertise, caring and compassion have been lifesaving and instrumental in providing appropriate medical and emotional support to me and my family when needed.
    Every department gets involved in the total care that is essential for the well-being of those entrusted to White Oak Manor as residents.

  • Letter: Conservative Trump thrived amid liberals

    A lot of folks think that Donald Trump is a celebrity and businessman who is running for president but doesn’t know much about politics and government and has no experience in it.
    Let me tell you what I know about Donald Trump and his experience as an active, conservative, grass-roots Republican.

  • Letter: Thanks for support for our Marines

    I offer a special thank you to the generous citizens of Lancaster and York counties who contributed to the Christmas gifts sent to the Marines of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, home-stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and currently deployed to Romania.

  • Letter: Helping children deal with death

    My son died three years ago at age 25. Our family has many small children, and one of the things I did at the visitation was to place a step stool in front of the casket, so they could see my son – their uncle and cousin.
    They all crowded around and touched and kissed him while I answered their questions: Why doesn’t he move? Why he is he cold? Why can’t he speak? It helped that I had taught preschool before becoming a funeral director.

  • Letter: Overbrook Road overlooked

    This letter is in reference to road closures and flood barricades still up on five roads in Lancaster County listed in the paper on Sunday, Nov. 23.
    Evidently, the people that live on Overbrook Road don’t count. The road is closed at Taxahaw Road and barricaded at Lynches River going into Chesterfield County.
    When SCDOT rehabilitated Overbrook Road, they left off 2 miles. The people that live down there are being discriminated against.
    The road is full of potholes and it’s closed at the river. School buses use part of that road.

  • Letter: Israel and Biblical prophesy

    I read with interest the Nov. 25 column by Bob Lanning summarizing the Biblical history of Israel. His condensed version of that history seems quite good and quite accurate. I must take issue, however, with the last two paragraphs of his column.

  • Letter: Some French courted disaster

    The Paris terror attack on Friday the 13th is important in today’s lost world.  The French President closed the border that night to stop the uncontrolled and crazy immigration that was happening.  He did not know that the problem was already in country and it was his lost people.

  • Letter: Resident thanks police officers

    I want to thank the four men from the Lancaster Police Department for bringing me a big box of turkey and other stuff on Thanksgiving. They were from the B Shift, but I didn’t get their names.
    I’m here by myself, and they went beyond the call of duty and gave up some of their time on their Thanksgiving to help me. And I really appreciate what they did. A lot of people wouldn’t have done that.
    I appreciate everything our police officers do.
