  • Jaylen’s grandmother angry about verdict

    It has been almost two months and I still can’t believe the verdict Marico Stevens received in the death of my grandbaby, Jaylen Jackson. Stevens was arrested May 6, 2010, in the shooting death of Jaylen.
    Anthony Carter, who was also charged in Jaylen’s death, was found guilty.
    Yes, I’m mad at the state and jurors. But there is a higher power than them. Jaylen wasn’t but 3 years old. We’ve not had her to celebrate her birthday and Christmas for two years. Yet, a person charged in her death is walking the streets free.

  • Writer grateful for honest person

    I just want to thank my Christmas angel who found my mother’s money in Walmart’s parking lot and turned it in.
    You have earned a gold star in heaven.

  • Angel Tree coordinators grateful for support

    We would like to send a special thanks to everyone who sponsored an angel from the Angel trees, the anonymous monetary donations and the food given to families for the holidays.
    The businesses that placed Angel trees helped sponsor 1,356 children.
    We also thank the Toys for Tots, which donated a lot of toys and stocking stuffers, as well as the schools that did the same.
    We’re grateful for those who donated coats and scarves. We thank God for these wonderful supporters.

  • Woman grateful for returned lost ring

    I want  to thank the kind, honest person who found my ring at Walmart and turned it in.
    I hope the Lord will bless you greatly.

  • Is tax cut on tax or insurance?

    As I write this letter to the editor, the liberal Democratic Party and President Barack Obama are trying to extend the payroll tax cut.
    The thing they’re not informing you of is that this is not a tax cut. This money is going to you instead of going to the Social Security fund.
    That’s right, the Social Security fund is being short-changed again. Obama is telling you it’s needed to boost the economy, yet this tax cut has been in effect for almost a year and it’s had zero effect.

  • Our roads definitely need improvement

    I agree with Sun City residents and letter writers Tom and Maryann White. U.S. 521 is a mess, not only in Indian Land, but the entire four lane from the Lancaster city limits to the North Carolina state line needs improvement.
    I recall the highway signs from the past that  read, “See the best state on the best roads.” Maybe an earlier version, “The Iodine State,” would be more appropriate.

  • Commending sheriff’s office

    Is his name Vince Lambardi, Bear Bryant or maybe Dale Earnhardt? He’s not a famous football coach or seven-time
    NASCAR champion.
    No, his name is Barry Faile, sheriff of Lancaster County.
    I have heard people say “there goes Lancaster’s finest” in a sarcastic tone when a deputy rode by, followed with a whisper, “what a joke – they’re nothing.”
    It looks like the joke is on us. Just as it takes a well-oiled team to accomplish what the three men above accomplished. They are known as the best of the best.

  • Writer will vote against alcohol sales on Sundays

    When our country was young, the British and the Europeans kept coming, pushing to the west.
    On Sunday, they rested from work and gathered at church. They remembered the Sabbath Day.
    In Charlotte, the owners of Ivey’s Store pulled the shades down and you couldn’t window shop on Sundays.
    It’s a shame restaurant owners think they can’t make it without alcohol sales.
    I don’t think alcohol should be the drawing card for the restaurants.

  • More foster homes needed for pets

    It is a heart-warming ending for the emaciated German shepherd that was cruelly pulled behind a vehicle. The Lancaster Humane Society embraced this boy and got him medical treatment and into a loving foster home. He will be treated for heartworms when he is strong enough.
    The outpouring of concern from folks shows how many animal lovers there are in Lancaster County. But the real picture is not so bright.
