  • Congress is forcing trillions of dollars in debt on youth

    Whether by design or accident, Congress and the Obama administration have managed to offend the vast majority of parents in America.
    This includes parents of all races, all ethnic groups, all nationalities, all union members, all members of management, all atheists, all religions, the poor, the wealthy, the middle class, the liberals, the conservatives, the centrists, the libertarians and all other citizens concerned about oncoming generations.

  • There is still time to amend ordinances

    Kershaw Lancaster County Council still has time to rectify Ordinance 1073 and rescind Ordinance 1080. 

    The agenda for the first meeting in August can still be amended to include these matters. 

    The six month waiting period is about to end and we may be again facing attempts to place a sanitary landfill in our midst. 

    Why would council not want to eliminate Ordinance 1080 and this assure the public they are sincere in their representation of us? 

  • Don’t move the county farmers market or change hours

    Don’t move the county farmers market or change hours 

    I have enjoyed visiting our Lancaster County Farmers Market this summer, thanks to the vendors who share their vegetables and the hard work that comes with growing them. 

    I have heard that some would like to move the market uptown and only have it open Saturday.

    Please leave the market on S.C. 9, where it is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and convenient for all.

  • An American fairy tale

    Our son has maxed out his credit card that we have given to him. He wants us to increase his debt limit again.  Because we have done it many times in the past, he says we should keep doing so. We have asked him to curb his spending and he is getting mad because we have asked him this too many times now. We are getting mad because he keeps running the card up to the new limit.

  • Letter: Young need to put down guns; parents need to speak up

    To our young men: Put down your guns and pick up a trade to become the young man God created you to be.
    Your family is really those who suffer the most – your parents and children left behind, weeping for a wrong decision that you made. Making bad decisions instead of the right decisions, causing your parent to be in debt. Allowing your parent to explain to the child who is left behind, asking “Where is my father, where is my mother?”

  • Letter: Thanks to farmers market

    I would like to express my vote of thanks to the Lancaster County Farmers Market for the convenience of the location, prices, fresh vegetables and produce with their friendly service.

  • President needs to listen to people, follow Constitution

    I have been listening to our politician president trying again to scare us about consequences of not raising the debt ceiling and saying that we do not need a balanced budget.
    If we do raise the debt ceiling and do not cut a lot out of the budget, our credit rating will still be lowered, just like our personal credit would be lowered if we spend too much. What would happen to American families if we did not balance our budgets?

  • Some legal advice, please

     The Associated Press reported on July 15, that police in Georgia shut down a lemonade stand operated by three girls who were attempting to raise admission money to attend a water park amusement center.  Police said the girls had no business permit or other required documents.
     In the July 17 edition of The Lancaster News, my “Remember when”  column mentioned that I set up a lemonade stand in front of my Chesterfield Avenue home during the 1940’s Army maneuvers.

  • Dr. Adams left a true legacy

    Dr. Ira Adams was certainly unforgettable. I went to his dental office when I was in my teens and I still remember it well. Not being fond of any dental office, it always terrified me when he came to the waiting room door and spoke the famous words, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?”
    I guess he wanted to make sure everyone understood what he said, because he always repeated, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?” I didn’t mind at all waiting on those who needed a tooth pulled, because I was not anxious for my turn to come anyway.
