• Do you truly love your neighbor?

    Reading the two letters, “Is the end in sight?” and “America following Rome’s path,” in the July 8 edition of The Lancaster News warranted the following observations.

    In his letter, W.B. Evans states the Ten Commandments, given by God, are being ignored and biblical sins brought the downfall of ancient nations.

    While Christianity is the predominate religion in this great country, why are the Ten Commandments the primary go to when referencing God’s laws? Christianity arose from the life and death of Jesus.

  • Canty left lasting impression on others

    We are always losing the people who are dearest to us, and I suppose the ones left behind are the ones God is not finished with yet.

    There are many good Samaritans out there, but I want to tell you of one I think of often because of her desire to help people.

    That person was Patricia “Pat” Canty, who has gone on to be with the Lord. Pat helped so many people in her social work. I thought of her going to church when she was not feeling up to par.

  • Is the end in sight?

    Does Independence Day sorta make you stand back and think?  For generations, Americans have revered those brave men who got America started.

    Now the politically correct have determined that our forefathers were a rotten bunch of slave holders and full of other vices.

  • America following Rome’s path

    With the two unconstitutional decisions handed down from the insane Supreme Court, this country is now firmly on the road that Rome took centuries ago.

    Chief Justice Roberts may just as well change his name to Ginsberg for his asinine logic pertaining to the health care act.

    Justice Scalia, on the other hand, was spot on by stating, “Words can no loner have meaning if an exchange that is not established by a state is “ ‘established by the state.’ ”

  • Lancaster could learn from Chesterfield

    Chesterfield County built a animal shelter that cost more than $900,000. The residents there spoke up and the county listened. It is a modern up-to-date facility that has more than 80 dog runs and a cat house. Chesterfield County has less than half of the animal intake as Lancaster County.

    Lancaster County Animal Control has asked the county for a simple pole barn with kennels for many years, but has always been told the county ran out ot money.

  • Our culture is being poisoned 

    The Confederate Flag was removed  from a Civil War Monument in Columbia  because it was claimed to be a symbol of hate for the shooter of nine people in a Charleston church. The truth is that the flag was used as a symbol of hate when it was used for a hundred years by the racist Democrat Party wing known as the KKK.

    Hate for everything American is still growing.  Rush Limbaugh said the progressive, illiberal left would next attack the American flag. Even Fox News did not like or believe this statement.

  • Facts are reliable, opinions vary

    I would like to comment on Leland Summers’ guest editorial, “Confederate Heritage Group Issues Statement on Massacre,” printed in the June 24 edition of The Lancaster News.

    His timely article was very informative and very well-stated. It should serve to eliminate much misunderstanding and misinformation concerning the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

  • Did blacks have a choice to fight in Civil War?

    I got to thinking about what Leland Summers wrote in his column about how blacks also fought int the Civil War. Well, how many of those men were free to decide if they wanted to fight in the war? How many were allowed to make up their minds to fight against the North who wanted to end slavery? How many were allowed to go North where they would be free?

  • Family grateful for assistance

    We would like to give a special thank you to the gentleman who helped comfort my wife after her fall Sunday morning at Las Mariachis Mexican Restaurant.

    I would also like to thank the restaurant staff and Lancaster EMS for their help.

    May God bless each one of you.

  • Officer helps local resident get refrigerator

    Several Saturdays ago I was having a yard sale. A sheriff’s deputy, whose name is Jason, pulled up and started talking to me.

    As we talked, I told Jason I would offer him a cold drink, but my refrigerator had gone out. He said I really needed to have a refrigerator and I told him I was going to get one when I got the money.

    He asked me my name and I told him.
