  • Mulvaney right for opposing Jobs Act

    Letter writer Sheila Bickford asks why U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney does not support Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act. I suggest because he is fiscally responsible and will not support this anti-senior union kissing scam. She does not mention that it cuts $175 billion annually out of Social Security and Medicare, according to an Associated Press story.

  • Writer pleased with prayer at Gaffney High football game

    On Oct. 21, I attended the Lancaster Bruins football game being played at Gaffney. I was surprised when right before the game, the public address announcer asked for everyone to stand for the invocation. A young man prayed and ended his prayer with “in Christ’s name we pray.”
    I was shocked. I’ve been going to LHS football games for years and the only so-called prayer that is said before those games is a sportsmen’s creed.

  • Camp Creek Fire Department thanks supporters

    We, the officers and all the volunteers of Camp Creek Fire Department, would like to thank everyone who supported us this year through our yard sale, letter drive and even the chicken and rice sale. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for all of you.
    It’s not easy to do what we do, but worth it all to help one of you in your time of need. Thanks to all our people for their hard work and time. We’re always there for our community.

  • Couple thanks council for Deese Road decision

    On behalf of the residents and landowners of Deese Road, we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all Lancaster County Council members, not only for listening to our concerns, but also for voting to remove Deese Road from the ordinance that would have closed an important section of our road.

  • American Legion grateful for fair attendees

    Members of American Legion Post 31 would like to thank everyone who came out with their children to support the recent fair at the Lancaster County fairgrounds. Proceeds from the fair will allow us to erect flag poles around the existing flag pole. On the new poles, we will raise service flags for each branch of military service in honor of all veterans of Lancaster County.
    Again, we say thank you.

  • Look, listen and think

    he politicians are on the trail, the media has its agenda and old folks, like me, haven’t got a clue. Whenever these presidential wannabes make a boo-boo, they quickly react with a 180-degree clarification.
    According to what I read and hear, South Carolina appears to be largely in favor of Herman Cain, the former Godfather Pizza CEO, for the Republican nod for our next president. His 9-9-9 program of taxation turned upside down looks like 6-6-6 to me. In other words, a real bad sign.

  • Writer praises sheriff’s office

    We agree 100 percent with Carl Miles’ letter to the editor about the good job Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is doing. Sheriff Barry Faile and his department are doing a great job keeping the crime rate down. With unemployment so high in Lancaster, it could be a lot worse if it wasn’t for all the dedicated officers.

  • Williams should have been selected for Shrine Bowl

    I have been involved with high school football for almost 30 years now. I am sick and tired of the Shrine Bowl being billed as the “best of South Carolina vs. North Carolina.” I recently read the list of players named to this year’s team and yes, they may be good players, but the “best”? How can you pick a team with so much football to be played? Some of these teams have six or seven more games to play.

  • Legislators feather own nests despite hard times

    The Sept. 23 edition of USA Today lead with a front-page story about how state legislatures set aside extra-lucrative pensions for themselves. This is nothing new; there have been media reports for years about the practice of legislating one’s own pay and pensions. It’s not just the federal Congress that gets away with this practice.
    The state with one of the worst records of setting themselves up with huge pension benefits is our own conservative South Carolina.

  • Protesters focus on gap between haves, have-nots

    I have been watching the news coverage of the protests against Wall Street. As I listen to the points the protesters are trying to make, I am reminded of the old saying, “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” I am also reminded of the saying, “Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
