  • Letter: Mr. Evans inspired many in Lancaster

    W.B. Evans was one of the best storytellers Lancaster has had. He inspired a lot of people as he did me, and he will remain in our hearts.
    Mr. Evans is a legend here for his stories. He is telling his stories about Chesterfield Avenue to Jesus now.
    W.B., we love you. God bless you, your family and your Lancaster News family.

  • Letter: Officers showed courage, restraint

    Lancaster Police Department Sgt. Dustynn Burlingame deserves public praise for the courage and restraint he demonstrated by not discharging his weapon at a suspect who presented a handgun while being detained.
    Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Carroll also deserves credit for assisting Sgt. Burlingame in the apprehension of the subject.
    Their actions shortly after midnight on Sunday, June 26, brought to mind a saying I heard years ago: “We sleep peacefully at night because brave men and women are patrolling our streets and protecting our homes.”

  • Letter: Thanks for staging Charlesboro Fourth

    I want to thank all who were in the Charlesboro’s July 4th parade. Thanks Kenny Hinson and Johnny Arant for the flags on the posts, and everyone else who helped.
    The music was provided by the Sims family. Thank you to them and all who provided food, nice and drinks. And I want to thank Stacy Faile for a beautiful fireworks display.

  • Letter: Don’t open door to anyone at night

    Editor’s note: Carl Miles, a frequent contributor to this page and a general uplifter of spirits, was severely injured by an intruder several months ago. We’re happy he has recovered enough to begin writing again.

    About two months ago, I was lying on my couch about 1 o’clock in the morning. Someone knocked on my door, and I opened it.
    A guy who must have been on dope was there. He said, “Do you have any money?” I replied, “No.”

  • Letter: 2 good Samaritans helped couple out

    My husband and I would like to thank two kind people who helped us two Saturdays ago.

    We were going down the bypass and had a flat tire. We pulled in the Walmart parking lot. My husband got the spare out, and it was flat. A lady stopped and she had an air compressor. She pumped up the tire. A young man came by and took the tire off, put the spare on, and we were on our way.

    Many thanks to these “good Samaritans,” and God bless you both.

  • Letter: Indifference will destroy America

    Every day I see and hear the same thing. Oh, we need Hillary because she’s a woman, or Trump will make America great again.

    If you’re buying into either one of these mindless slogans, then that’s what you are… mindless. Neither one of these candidates will change the path this country is on. Neither party cares about anything except power.

  • Letter: No viable candidate in presidential race

    The presidential election is almost upon us. I want to share my views with anyone considering voting.
    Time journalist Joe Klein says Republican candidate Donald Trump is using “his lizard brain… rather than his frontal lobe, which is where thought and reason take place.”
    Klein said after Marco Rubio finished second in the S.C. primary, Trump sent out a tweet questioning Rubio’s citizenship. The fact is Rubio was born in the United States, the son of Cuban immigrants.

  • Letter: Be courteous to vets when using fireworks

    As the Independence Day holiday approaches, Phantom Fireworks would like to remind its customers, friends and all those who use consumer fireworks to be mindful of the fact that some veterans can be startled and upset by the noise of fireworks.
    Chelsey Zoldan, a licensed clinical mental health counselor and special consultant to Phantom Fireworks, advises there is the potential for some veterans to be reminded of combat situations when they hear the loud sounds of gunfire and/or fireworks.

  • Letter: Neighbor supports Graham in District 1 race

    After a close race for the Lancaster County Council seat in District 1, I’d like to express my support for Terry Graham.  
    As a neighbor and businessman in my community, I have been very impressed by the integrity and authenticity of this man. He’s the real deal!  
    With so many challenges facing the county due to the explosive growth in the Panhandle, our County Council is in need of leadership. This council seat must have a leader who is willing to work with other members to address the issues and provide solutions.
