  • Congress needs to do what’s best for country, not itself

    As our society becomes more apathetic, due to our government looking out for themselves and not the people of the United States, we will see the country and society become less able to handle or solve its problems.
    I just read that the “Super Committee” couldn’t come to an agreement on what or where to cut spending to get to the $1.2 trillion they were expected to achieve, so they just go on to say they can’t settle this and walk away from their responsibility to the country.

  • While not perfect, Gingrich is the most qualified

    Newt Gingrich is by no means the perfect presidential candidate, having made mistakes in both his political and personal life. But he’s straightforward enough to admit it, going so far as to say he was wrong and just plain stupid in some cases, and trying to explain his position in others.
    Out of all the candidates, he is by far the most qualified person to be our next president.

  • Hewett letter: Christmas is not in the Scripture

    I thank The Lancaster News for sharing the Scripture (Luke 2:1-20) in the Dec. 25 edition.
    There should be one small correction, please.
    “Christmas” is not in Scripture, but an invention of the Roman Catholic Church, as the actual birth date of the Messiah is not in Scripture.
    The word “Christmas” is a combination of the words “Christ” and “Mass.”
    The word “Mass” means death and was coined originally by the Roman Catholic Church.

  • Christmas parade caused chaos for residents

    Who in the world had the bright idea of lining the Christmas parade up in a residential area, to be more specific – French and Catawba streets? I’m even more appalled that our city officials allowed this.
    If a resident had an emergency, when minutes really matter, the clock would have just kept on ticking. If there had been a fire at someone’s home, it probably would have burned down. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It started at 4 p.m. and didn’t clear until after 8 p.m.

  • 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.
