Letters

  • Voter doesn’t need Team Graham’s help

    A few weeks ago, I got a mailer from Team Graham, wanting to help me file an absentee ballot. The form asked for all kinds of personal info, including my voter registration number. My first thought was that information is none of your business, just like my vote.

    I have voted absentee for many years. I simply call the Lancaster County Election Commission at (803) 285-2969, and those folks will send you the application. Just as they did recently. As an informed voter, I know how to do this.

  • Democrats protect all Americans

    This a response to Nick Pasquine’s response, “Do Democrats have same response for all issues?,” in the April 17 edition of The Lancaster News.

    His letter was a response to a letter written by me, Michael Jedson, “Remove tea party burden from Americans.” in the April 6 edition of The Lancaster News.

    Democrats don’t waiver in their support of middle and low income Americans and immigrants. Republicans seem to care about the upper 1 percent and the tea partiers only care about themselves.

  • Writer: Nobel does a spin job for voter fraud

    Reading Phil Nobel’s guest column, “Will June Primary in S.C. be honest?,” in the May 16 edition of The Lancaster News reminds me why I no longer vote for any Democrat.

    It is nothing but a column full of spins and cover ups to suit his voter-fraud-is-good agenda.

    First, he gives a history of voting a couple of hundred years ago which was patterned after those in Europe where the Founding Fathers came from.

    We evolved from property ownership to literacy requirements to vote. Guess that did not work too good for Democrats.

  • Dreams do come true

    The word “no” is a very powerful statement. It can tear you down and make you believe you are near your breaking point. “No, Abby, you can’t go back to school – you have a family to raise.”

    Or the famous, “No, your test results are not up to standards.”

    It would have been easy for me to believe all the people who told me “no” and to give up on school and my dreams.

  • Red Rover Dog Show a success

    Lancaster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LSPCA) is a registered South Carolina charity formed in June of 2013.

    Our rescued animals come from the Lancaster County Animal Shelter, owner surrenders, abandoned and/or neglected animals, plus a few from out of town that needed our help.

    All of our animals get excellent care from Faulkner Animal Hospital and their staff, and we have placed more than 150 homeless animals into healthy happy homes.

  • Writer grateful for medical response

    On Friday, May 23, my husband had cause to call on the services of a 911 dispatcher, the Lancaster County and Heath Springs Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and first responder from the volunteer fire department. 

    I would like to thank each responder, on my husband’s behalf, for their prompt, professional and compassionate services during this difficult time. 

    Because of the situation I cannot remember their individual names, and I do apologize for that, and send my heartfelt thanks for a job well done.

  • County government depends on IL revenue

    Here we go again – talk, talk, talk. No action. When the issue of Indian Land incorporation came up many years ago, IL Action Council had the mayor of Tega Cay talk about incorporation. He was a very good speaker. In 30 minutes he gave the lowdown on incorporating in South Carolina. It was not hard, just time-consuming. Lancaster County Councilman Brian Carnes was here then and might remember this.

  • Do traffic lights cost more than teachers?

    J.R. Wilt’s column, “County Council runs amok on the overlay,” regarding the overlay plan in the May 11 edition of The Lancaster News should open a lot of eyes, provided Mr. Wilt’s cost figures on traffic light poles (masts) are correct.

    If a light mast costs $300,000, something doesn’t smell right. With costs like that, Lancaster County has spent a bunch of money on U.S. 521 North to enable the residents easier access from their developments to the main highway.

  • Recipients of strangers’ kindness to pay it forward

    Once a month the residents of Morningside Assisted Living get to choose a place to go out for lunch.

    We take the ladies out one week and the men out the next. This gives them a chance to fellowship with each other and try restaurants in town they have may have not tried before.

    On Thursday, May 8, I took a group of seven ladies out to lunch at Wing King.

    There was a gentleman at the next table, who when paying his bill, paid ours as well. The total was almost $100.

  • Writer encourages people to vote in the June 10 primary

    In Lancaster County, the local primary is June 10. From my observation, the voter turnout is not a sufficient representation of the total population in local elections.

    When a presidential election is held the population turns out in masses.

    That same response is needed now. Very important offices are up for election. Now is the time to make our voice heard, again.

    Our local elections have a direct effect on us as a people. We have a say in who runs our local government.
