Letters

  • Open letter to Councilman Larry Honeycutt

    Mr. Honeycutt, as an elected official of Lancaster County, you are considered a politician.
    The definition of a politician, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is a person actively engaged in party politics, frequently used in a derogatory sense, with implications of seeking personal or partisan gain, scheming and opportunism.

  • We are a country in a crisis

    One day while in prayer, I thought of the woes of our country, our world and how no one seems to want to take responsibility for their actions. I said, “Lord, what’s going to happen? What can we do?”
    Immediately these scriptures flooded my mind:
    1. Righteousness exalted a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34.

  • Obama does not know a thing about business

    I have listened and watched this debate over President Barack Obama’s “You didn’t build that” comment.
    And after watching and listening to the debate over reported and under reported, its President Obama’s own commercial that finally made me have enough. Some of you will disagree, but that is fine. But for this president to lecture anyone is ridiculous.

  • Don’t take Obama speech out of context

    I would like to respond to Sen. W. Greg Ryberg’s letter, “Obama should stop insulting entrepreneurs,” published in the Aug. 1 edition of The Lancaster News.

  • Obama should stop insulting entrepreneurs

    President Barack Obama recently said the hard-working, risk-taking and self-sacrificing entrepreneur is not responsible for their own success, but that he or she owes their success to the government. Aside from being insulting, it actually is exactly opposite of the truth.
    The hard-working, risk-taking and self-sacrificing entrepreneur is responsible not only for his or her own success, but also anything and everything that the government manages to do right, which often is not much.

  • We’re headed for worse disaster under Democrats

    As I read the front page story about the jobless rate on the front page of the July 29 edition of The Lancaster News, it made me think about the recent McClatchy newspaper survey regarding job losses.
    It shows that Democrats have had a 62 percent higher job loss than Republicans under Obama. So much for Democrats helping the middle class and minorities.

  • Williams cycles 545 miles in fundraiser

    Arvan Williams, a 1981 graduate of Andrew Jackson High School, completed his first AIDS/Life Cycle Ride.
    The fundraiser was held June 3-9 to bring awareness and assist those infected or affected by the disease.
    Along with 2,200 other cyclists representing 44 states and 16 countries, Williams cycled 545 miles, beginning in San Francisco and ending in Los Angeles, Calif.

  • Pay attention to what is going on in the world

    How does a righteous nation get a Barack Hussein Obama as president? Very simple.
    We have become a nation of greedy, covetous, other god-worshipping immoral people. This will leave a mark that will take a long time to remove or get over.

  • Evans letter: If you can do a better job, then go for it

    Well, I read another reader’s opinion about our Lancaster County Council members. Seems like we have a bunch who love to spend taxpayer money on building and renovation.
    For goodness sakes, we gotta make like things are going great. How in the world are we gonna bring in new companies if we look worn and shabby?
    The way crime is increasing, it’s a good thing that we got us a fancy new judicial  square right smack dab in the middle of our historical district.

  • Miles letter: We need to help officers

    Our sheriff and police chief are doing a wonderful job. But they need help from citizens. We need to watch out for each other. If you see something strange or out of place in your neighborhood, let them know.
    Lancaster is having a rash of home invasions. Residents need to fight back. We cannot let drug dealers and gangs take over. Watch out for your neighbor, as well as yourself. Women should not go anywhere by themselves. We need to check on the elderly and make sure they are OK.
    We can’t leave everything up to officers. We must do our part.
