Letters

  • Annexation will impact property values

    Many residents from the Partridge Hill and Forest Hills neighborhoods turned out to comment at the recent Lancaster City Planning Commission meeting. Once again, St. Katherine Properties has applied for annexation into the city with a zoning of R-10. 

  • No need to bring up previous fatalities

    I am not quite sure of how to begin this letter. We have a very good newspaper in Lancaster. 

    The reporters are good and many of them have won awards for the stories they have written. But, I have a problem with how the reporters for The Lancaster News and other news media in television and paper cover stories.

  • Carnes good public servant

    I’ve gotten to know good public servants (Mick Mulvaney, Deborah Long) who faithfully serve their communities. Brian Carnes is another such public servant, and I enthusiastically support his candidacy for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat.

    Brian’s common-sense approaches – preparing our kids and our economy for the challenges of the 21st century – are the right ones for keeping our quality of life high. 

  • 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.”
