Letters

  • Faile runs a professional department

    As a recently retired deputy with Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and a concerned citizen, I was appalled to see the letter, “We need some changes made in county,” written by former deputy Jim King, who is one of Scott Case’s chief campaign agents.
    Sheriff Barry Faile is a professional law enforcement officer who has a background and experience is second to none in this region. His credibility has never been questioned and he has spent his entire career in public service.

  • Krugman not reliable with facts, either

    I’d  like to respond to Michael Jedson’s April 20 letter, “Whittlesey needs to get facts right.”
    Most people who put down Fox News and Rush Limbaugh do not watch or listen to either one. If you are going to state they aren’t reliable on facts, I wouldn’t come back with quotes from Paul Krugman.
    He is a leftist elite who thinks – as they all do – that they should lead and the masses should just follow as sheep, or as the liberals prefer, mobs.

  • Time for us to behave ourselves

    When I’m  out of town, I rely on the Internet to keep abreast of  what’s happening at home.
    Locals are calling Lancaster County the wild West and out-of-town newspapers publish every incident of wrong doing attributed to current and former Lancaster folks. Comments from readers of those articles usually have plenty of disparaging comments about Lancaster and us.
    Years ago, we dared to cross the river after sundown. Sure looks like the bad chickens have come home to roost.

  • All voters need a wake up call

    I would like to respond to Alana Henderson’s column, “All parties need wake-up call,” in the April 22 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Since I was labeled “uninformed” and “naïve” in Ms. Henderson’s article, I feel it necessary to correct her assumptions. I haven’t found it advisable to assume I know everything about a person, but perhaps Ms. Henderson hasn’t learned that lesson yet.

  • Hospice Care of SC celebrates Nurses Week

    Hospice Care of South Carolina is joining the American Nurses Association in celebrating Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring as part of National Nurses Week, which is held May 6-12 every year.
    The purpose of the week-long celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the health-care needs of the American people.

  • Hospital week begins today

    A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it’s a part of a community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. That’s the message of the 2012 National Hospital Week, which is celebrated this year on May 6-12.

  • Lack of insurance deterrent to skate park

    Editor’s note: Lancaster resident Dustin Owens has sought support from Lancaster City Council, Lancaster County Council and Lancaster County Parks and Recreation for a local skateboarding park. In a letter, “Skate park supporter’s request falls on deaf ears,” published April 4, Owens shared his disappointment at the proceedings. Steve Willis, Lancaster County administrator, responded to Owens in a letter. Following is Willis’ response.

    Dear Dustin,

  • We need some changes made in county

    I would like to thank letter writer John Realmuto, “Writer: Call Lancaster ‘last of Wild West towns’ in the April 13 edition of The Lancaster News, for your observation.
    Please remember when you’re at the voting booth this election that we have a great Republican candidate running for sheriff this year. His name is Scott Case, who graduated high school, is a U.S. Navy veteran and holds two college degrees.

  • Catawba casino is just what state needs

    Lancaster, York and the surrounding counties have an opportunity that is probably the envy of many counties and states in America. What I am talking about is the Catawba Nation’s plan to build a casino on their reservation.
    The potential and benefit, especially to Lancaster and York counties, not to mention the state of South Carolina, is a welcome gift from the Catawbas.

  • Rosie’s Easter Bash another success

    On behalf of the city of Lancaster, I would like to send a shout-out to everyone who made Lancaster’s second Rosie’s Easter Bash a success.
    These individuals brought their talents and energy, which created an atmosphere of family and fun to an estimated 3,000 folks hunting for 4,000 eggs.
    Thank you to the Lancaster High School Civinettes, Sarina Johnson, Jasmine Brown, Aliya Byrd, Charleen Allen and adviser Stacey Kirkley, who took time out after school during February and March to collect candy and fill eggs, as well as volunteer at the bash.
