Letters

  • 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.

  • Letter: Thanks from Fort Lawn Community Center

    The Fort Lawn Community Center would like to thank the following individuals for their time and many efforts benefiting our fourth annual Spring Festival held April 16.
    Even though the threat of severe weather hampered the number of visitors, we still consider the event a huge success and the total amount of income earned from the festival was $9,570.75.

  • Letter: Sheriff: Thank a law officer during National Police Week

    I’d like to encourage everyone to take a minute to recognize our local law enforcement officers during National Police Week, which runs May 15-21.
    Give them a pat on the back and thank them for the selfless jobs they do for this community each day. They face many unknown risks and challenges and their sacrifice and service is often taken for granted.
    Show your support and let a deputy, police officer, highway patrolman, wildlife officer or corrections officer know just how much their work means to you this week.

  • Letter: Pleasant Valley Fire Dept. seeks former chiefs’ photos

    I am writing in reference to the letters about the lack of historical pictures in the new Pleasant Valley Fire Department station. I am sorry people have hard feelings about this.  
    We could not locate a picture of Mr. Crawford, who was a fire chief years ago. The only picture we received was with a group of people and we couldn’t use it.  
    Jerry Kessiah was also a Pleasant Valley fire chief years ago. He had two daughters that we don’t know whom they married, so we don’t have a last name for either.

  • Letter: Thank you to all who helped with fundraiser for Andy Green

    Miracles happen when you have enough people believing, because of three things God gave us all – faith, hope and love. And the most important of these is love.
    That is what the ladies of Allure Beauty have most in their hearts and that is love, for they gave their love so that Andy Chance Green and his parents could have a true blessing in their lives.
    Delois, Ashley, Joni, Stacy, Teresa and Jana held a successful bake sale and fundraiser for Andy.
    We would like to thank everyone who brought baked goods for the bake sale.

  • Letter: Open letter to mayor and City Council

    I was shocked today (May 8) when I attended the worship service at my church, First United Methodist Church, 200 W. Gay St., Lancaster. As is the custom of our church, weekly worship services are held at 11 a.m. each Sunday. God had blessed this Mother’s Day with a beautiful, sunny day.
    As our services began, a pressure wash motor was started across the street, directly in front of the church. When I opened the front doors and looked out, there sat a truck backed up to the Arts Council building. The workman began to clean the building.

  • Bin Laden’s death brings relief to local family

    Thank you for this opportunity to share our thoughts with you regarding this matter:

  • Clemson’s priorities are athletics, not academics

    Clemson’s priorities are athletics, not academics

    Clemson University’s Will To Lead capital campaign will allocate $200 million to 400 scholarship athletes ($500,000 per athlete) and $400 million to 16,000 non-athletes ($25,000 per student), a 20 to 1 ratio. 

    Incredibly, Clemson has spent $120 million during the past 10 years on athletic facilities or $1 million per month.
