  • Public radio not place to get the facts

    Winston Churchill said, “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” Nothing speaks to the wisdom of that remark better than Ronald Hopkins’ recent letter to the editor, “To politicize Arizona shooting is unthinkable.”
    In the first paragraph he refers to liberals as disgusting and insane – which takes care of any honest debate issue.
    He then attributes four acts of violence to the left – as usual, no facts; simply the usual tea party rhetoric.

  • Writer grateful for care at hospital

    I wish to say a great big thank you to Dr. Dige and all the staff working in Springs Memorial Hospital’s emergency room on the morning of Jan. 14.

  • Writers grateful for Faulkner’s compassion

    We wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff at Faulkner’s Animal Hospital. We recently had to put our sweet Molly Jean to sleep due to her age and quality of life.
    We thank Dr. Brent Glenn for his compassion during this sad time in our life.

  • Are you better off now than two years ago?

  • Griffin: Regional landfill would benefit county

    ve been a proud neighbor and contributing member of Lancaster County’s business community for more than 15 years, as owner and operator of the Mining Road Industrial and C&D Landfill.

  • Carnes says go slow in decision on landfill

    I  would like to express my opposition to the Waste Management/Griffin Brothers landfill in the Kershaw area and my support of the Lancaster County Action Council.
    As an advocate of transparency and open government, I feel that the process that led to the decision to allow for the change of this landfill from its original intent to a landfill handling household waste was flawed and not transparent to the citizens of Lancaster County.

  • Writer believes in term limits

    I received a letter from former Sen. Greg Gregory requesting my support for his new candidacy for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. I thank him for his mailing, but his re-entering the campaign mystifies me.
    Gregory, at one time, voted for term limits. Sixteen years in office should suffice.
    You see, I am a firm believer in term limits. As Thomas Jefferson once stated, “our electorate should go to Congress, see to the needs of our people, prepare for the country’s defense and return home to care to the needs of their family.”

  • Writer asks residents to join in landfill fight

    There has been a terrible injustice done to the citizens of Lancaster County. When County Council members covered up Ordinance No. 1073 under the guise of economic development and decided on their own that they were the only ones who needed to know about this sanitary landfill, we, as Lancaster County citizens, lost all respect and trust in those members.

  • Washington has a spending addiction

    I wish to respond to William Moore’s letter, “Mulvaney at forefront of incivility,” in the Jan. 21 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Have you ever been to  a tea party, Mr.Moore? Or are you assuming, as many others, that the tea party is a bunch of right wing loonies?
    I’ve been to all of the Lancaster tea parties and have certainly not seen any indication or suggestions of overthrow of the government. The tea party principles are limited government, fiscal responsibility, border security and national sovereignty.

  • Gregory proven conservation champion

    We are pleased that Greg Gregory has chosen to run again for the state Senate. Although we regret that his becoming a candidate necessitates his resignation from the Board of Conservation Voters, the Conservative Voters of South Carolina PAC is endorsing Gregory for election to the S.C. Senate District 16 seat.
