  • Cauthen touched the lives of so many people

    Cauthen touched the lives of so many people

    I did something Aug. 19 that I have never done before. I attended a funeral, only I was on the outside looking in. Usually when I go to a funeral, I go inside the church; but that day was different. 

    I, like many others, parked our cars in store lots and on the side of the road to pay homage to a fallen hero as he was brought to St. Luke United Methodist Church for the last time. 

  • Obama and Democrats report shadow jobs 

    Many years ago, a friend told a story of growing up so poor, his parents served shadow ham on a regular basis. What is shadow ham? This is when cured country ham was hung up where you could smell it for days or weeks before cooking and eating it. The aroma is shadow ham.

    President Barack Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats seem to be practicing shadow jobs.

  • 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.
