  • Touching words too late for 3-year-old

    Touching words too late for 3-year-old

    I read Betty Ann Stevens’ letter, “Young need to put down guns, parents need to speak up,” in the July 29 edition of The Lancaster News. 

    There were some touching words in the letter. But those words were too late for my 3-year-old granddaughter, Jaylen Jackson. She lost her life to the negligence of others when she was shot and killed when she got caught in a crossfire.

  • Please keep bus stops clear so our children can be seen

    It’s that time of year again, folks. School has started and buses are rolling about 6:15 a.m. each day. If you have children who will be waiting at bus stops, please cut the grass and clear the area around the bus stops so passers by can see your child in the wee hours of the morning.
    Lancaster County appears to be so broke that many roads are now overgrown, limiting the ability to see. We truly do not want to have any harm come to our children. So, please folks, cut, cut, cut that grass.
    Our students, parents and drivers would greatly appreciate it.

  • We should be proud of Murphy’s response

    So often media reporters have a tendency to place undue blame or financial hardship on individuals or companies in their quest for hard-hitting news.
    Chris Sardelli’s article, “Cars damaged in gas mix-up at Murphy’s,” in the Aug. 10 edition of The Lancaster News, clearly outlined the costly mistake made that resulted in many vehicle owners becoming distraut.

  • The left labels TEA Party as terrorists

    Here we go again. Now that the left has failed to codify the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party as racists, they have turned to using the term of “terrorists.” The media, Democratic congressmen, and even the vice president have used the words “terrorists,” “jihadists” and “terrorist bombers” to erroneously vilify the TEA Party.
    This is the ultimate in hypocrisy for when the Islamists actually attacked us on 9/11 and the many attempts after, the left couldn’t bring their tiny minds to call them terrorists.

  • Writer will support alcohol sales on Sunday

    I would like to respond to Danny Johnson’s letter, “Alcohol sales on Sunday have nothing to do with eating out,” in the Aug. 10 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Mr. Johnson is entitled to God’s Day, as freedom of religion is part of our founding. That same founding calls for separation of church and state. Mr. Johnson has no right to try and force his beliefs on others.

  • Tanner invites residents to join Indian Land Voice

    It’s me again. Anybody out there?
    I have been working for three years to foster positive change within Indian Land by educating and informing the citizens.  I have attended Lancaster County Council meetings and spoken, been appointed to county committees, and more to represent Indian Land.

  • Cureton embodies true spirit of service

    Dr. Deborah B. Cureton is not only an educator, a humanitarian and a servant to our community, but she is also a cherished family member with whom I’m very proud. She respectfully embodies the spirit of my mother and her father which encourages me to be the best me that I can be.
    I am also inspired by her service work, which propelled me to pay it forward to those in need of a helping hand.

  • County responsible for Edenmoor

    Excuse me, Mr. Willis, it’s difficult for me to understand how the undeveloped property and community roads in Edenmoor could still be “private property” since the Forfeited Land Commission completed foreclosure proceedings, which I believe took place in the last months of 2010. And I’m pretty sure I could convince a judge who is legally liable for occurrences on the property while under the FLC’s control.

  • We need more people paying taxes

    Rudy Schmidt wrote an excellent letter, “An American fairy tale,” in the July 31 edition of The Lancaster News. That is more than what I can say for Gil Small, chairman of the Lancaster County Democratic Party. His column, “There are some in Congress we can rely on to get the job done,” sounded like it was from an AP President Barack Obama parrot article. He mentions debt-ceiling raises under President George W. Bush, but neglects to mention most of them were by a Democrat-controlled Congress.

  • Alcohol sales on Sunday have nothing to do with eating out

    I’m writing concerning Sunday alcohol sales.
    If God’s people let this pass and do nothing about it, how is the love of God in us?
    In Indian Land, there are several restaurants to eat at. This is not about eating out: it’s all about the mighty dollar.
    No alcohol sales on Sunday is all that is left in this county that shows respect for God’s day.
    Lancaster County needs God, not alcohol sales on Sunday.
