  • Letter: Thanks to all who helped with city’s Easter event

    On behalf of the city of Lancaster, I would like to send a shout out to everyone that made Lancaster’s first Easter event a success. These individuals brought their talents and energy creating an atmosphere of family and fun in the effort to welcome spring.
    Thank you to the Lancaster High School Civinettes, who designed the Easter egg coloring sheet and worked the event. Their adviser, Stacey Kirkley, who is also a teacher at Lancaster High, brought in 15 girls to organize the Easter egg hunt, and put up coloring sheets in the downtown merchant’s windows.

  • Letter: Remember vets at Memorial Day program

    On Sunday, May 29, at 3 p.m., we will conduct our 20th annual Memorial Day program at Lancaster Memorial Park.
    We ask our community members to join us in remembrance of those who have given so much to assure all our freedoms and now rest in cemeteries throughout this county and state. We remember them all.

  • Letter: God help us

    I agree with everything that brother Steve Stewart said in the May 6 issue of The Lancaster News (Take care in celebrating death of bin Laden).
    But I want to add this:
    Christian people don’t rejoice when lost people die (whom the Lord died for) and go to hell.
    Religious people do.
    Christian people don’t rejoice when more than a million babies are murdered each year.
    Religious people do.
    Christian people didn’t stand around the cross and laugh and mock Jesus when he was crucified.
    Religious people did.

  • Letter: Charrettes need your input

    As per the “Notice of Charrette” in last week’s paper, no, the USS Charrett, a Navy destroyer launched in 1943, isn’t coming; and we are not getting a charrette in front of the horse as usual. Charrette, an American design supply retailer headquartered in the Boston area, is not locating next to Walmart. 

  • Letter: Osama now paying the price

    Osama Bin Laden, you were judge and jury for all the lives you took. Now you have to stand before the ultimate judge. And you have been sentenced.
    This is my belief – you and Hitler were the worst mass murderers in history. The Bible tells us not to judge, but it is my belief that you are with Hitler, for all those innocent lives you two took. You are now paying the price.
    The United States stop-ped Hitler. We stopped you. And anyone who hurts or kills, we will stop. It may take 10 years, as it did with bin Laden, but the United States will prevail.
