  • Letter: Norman voted against homeowners on HOA board

    Does your housing development have a homeowner’s association?  If so, read this.
    U.S. House District 5 candidate Ralph Norman is a real estate developer and politician. In the S.C. House, he opposed all bills that would allow residents on HOA boards during building. He said that you had to wait until the last house was sold.
    That might result in homeowners not understanding community problems and/or expenses until after the developer leaves.That seems unfair.

  • Letter: Parnell ‘truly qualified candidate’

    We are fortunate in the 5th District of South Carolina to have the opportunity to send a truly qualified candidate to Washington to represent us.  
    Democrat Archie Parnell was born and raised in South Carolina, and received his law degree from USC. He cares what happens to the people of our state. He is an accomplished attorney who served in the Justice Department in Washington before working for many years in business, consulting on tax compliance issues with large, international companies.

  • Letter: Disappointed with coverage of incorporation forum

    I had the pleasure to attend the “town” meeting regarding the incorporation of Indian Land at Transformation Church a couple of weeks ago.
    I was pleased to see your headline indicating that your reporter had attended the meeting.
    However, I was displeased to see that the coverage was of poor quality and did not take the opportunity to provide the public with the information that was so well presented by the committee representing those persons who support the incorporation of Indian Land.

  • Letter: Readers’ reaction to Noble and AARP columns

    Concerning Friday’s editorial page, obviously we already knew who Democrat Phil Noble was backing. My reaction to his latest diatribe is that we do not need yet another divisive Democrat in Congress. Period.
    As to AARP official Patrick Cobb’s column, we have not forgotten that AARP, a Medicare supplement seller, backed the Obamacare scam. We have not forgotten that the ACA wants to steal $800 billion of senior’s Medicare payments to support their health insurance scam. Subsidies to those making over $120,000 per year is pure vote-buying.

  • Letter: Tribute to those who died for us

    A lot of men and women have given their lives for the red, white and blue.
    To those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation fighting under that flag, and to all the others who served with them, and to all of their families, this country thanks you.
    God bless these brave people, and God bless America.

  • Letter: Lancaster County civics course well worth the investment

    I am a recent graduate of the 2017 Learning Lancaster Civics Course provided by Lancaster County.
    This course was educational, enjoyable and overall a great experience. I have learned so much regarding Lancaster County – how it works, where and how it spends our tax dollars, and what services it offers.

  • Letter: I oppose president on ending loan forgiveness for teachers

    I am a public school special education teacher. This month President Trump revealed he wants to cut public education funding and to end the Loan Forgiveness Plan for Teachers who teach in high-need areas and in high-need schools.
    I do not think it is acceptable to end this program when over 500,000 public employees are about to receive our forgiveness during the next fiscal year. The program was started in order to recruit more teachers and to combat the rising cost of higher education.

  • Letter: Governor is right on gun bill

    In his Sunday guest column, Phil Nobel characterized Gov. Henry McMaster’s first 100 days in office as a failure. Among the reasons he gave was that the governor supports legislation that would allow South Carolinians to carry guns without first obtaining a permit to do so.
    It is obvious from the words “God given” and “unalienable” that the founding fathers viewed certain behaviors as fundamental rights, not privileges granted by the government. One of these is the right to keep and bear arms.

  • Letter: Writer asks for God’s help and intervention after tragic deaths

    My heart goes out to Jim Burgess and his family after the tragic death of his wife Coleen. Jim, I don’t know you personally, but God bless you and your family. It will be hard, but it will get better.
    Also, we need to pray for the families of the two young men who were killed recently. We have had too many gang-related deaths, young men in the prime of their lives.
    God, please intervene with your holy power and stop the murders of our young men, and let them grow up.

  • Letter: A family’s thanks to Housing Authority

    My uncle lived at Caroline Court for many years. Sadly, he passed away last week.
    The staff of the Housing Authority of Lancaster went above and beyond their job requirements in serving our family. I would like to thank Mr. Jerry Witherspoon, Ms. Sharon Coleman, the maintenance crew, and all the other staff members for treating my uncle like family.
    Many times government agencies can be cold and difficult. Not these folks. They were always compassionate and professional.
