  • Democrats put hypocrisy in practice

    Lately there have been several examples of  blatant display of Democrat hypocrisy. One was when the Massachusetts Democrat Convention started on June 2. On page 14 of the convention program under registration and credentials was a statement that a photo ID was required before entering the Massmutual Center.
    The second example was when Michele Obama’s book, “American Grown,” went on sale in Washington, D.C. On June 12, she held her first book-signing. Again, those attending the book-signing were required to have a photo ID.

  • Democrats’ solution is to spend other people’s money

    I don’t think I would be proud to be a Democrat today.
    In January 2007, when Democrats took over full control of Congress, unemployment was 4.6 percent and the debt just over $6 trillion. Within a year, both numbers started escalating rapidly and have worsened ever since.
    Fifty percent of medical costs today are the result of obesity, smoking and litigation.

  • Letter writer praises David Demby

    I saw an article on David Demby, “Passion, love for EMS a career calling,” in The Lancaster News. I want to say I am so very proud of what he has done with his life. He has grown into a great man who cares for others.
    I remember David when he was a child and his mother was so sick. He and his brother would come with their mother to my beauty shop on South Avenue. They were such good boys then. I am so very glad to know he is still a good guy, who loves his fellow man and wants to help people in need.
    May God bless you always, David.

  • Don’t install more stoplights

    I believe I see foundations being prepared for more stoplights on S.C. 160 at the Barberville Road intersection. I hope this is not the case.
    The stoplight signal previously installed at the Hensley Road/S.C. 160 intersection causes a needless, major back-up on S.C. 160 during heavy traffic hours. If one is installed at the Barberville Road/S.C. 160 intersection, it will just add to the traffic issue and possibility of wrecks.

  • IL resident proud to be a Democrat

    I am proud to be a member of the Democratic Party because of what the party stands for.
    u Civil rights – Every American should have the opportunity to fully participate in our society without fear of discrimination.
    u Affordable health care – No one should go bankrupt just because they get sick. Every American should have access to basic health care. Democratic presidents have pushed for health reform over the years and will continue to do so.

  • Red Rose Festival had something for everybody

    All we can say is “wow.”  
    I hope all the Red Rose Festival organizers have recovered from the two-day event.
    It was obvious to us that a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort had gone into the planning and production of this event. Those who made it happen did a great job and by the time it was over, I’m sure they were happily exhausted.

  • Bundy ready to apply work ethic to council

    On Tuesday, June 12, the people of District 3 will go the polls to vote for their representative on County Council. In making this decision, they need to weigh out who is best able to analyze the complex issues coming before council, who is best able to manage the county’s budget needs and, ultimately, who will best serve as the representative of the entire District 3.
    I am running to be the person who represents District 3 on Lancaster County Council and would appreciate your support and your vote next Tuesday.

  • Kersey’s roots run deep in District 3

    It would be a great honor to serve as county councilman for Lancaster County District 3. My roots run deep in District 3. My grandmother, Levy Watts, was born in Oak Hill and my grandfather, Dwight Thompson Wright, was born and raised in Tradesville.
    My ancestors had a farm in the Oak Hill community for more than 100 years. My wife and I own that very farm today.
    During my four years on council (2005-2008):

  • Vote Carnes for experience

    On Tuesday, June 12, the residents of the northern part of Indian Land have a chance to participate in an historic event. We will be voting in the Republican primary to choose a county councilman to represent our growing area. (You can go to my website, www.carnesfor council.com, to see a map of the new district.) I would count it a privilege to receive your vote on that Tuesday.
    Remember, “Every vote counts; let your voice be heard!”

  • Vote Holt for ‘positive change’

    Indian Land voters in the newly created District 7 will have the opportunity next week to select their representative for Lancaster County Council.  Since no Democrat or independent candidate has filed for the newly created council seat, the winner of the Republican primary will almost certainly become our representative for the next four years. Regardless of your party affiliation (if you have one), you can request a Republican ballot on June 12.  It will not affect your ability to vote as you choose in future elections.
