  • Bottom-feeding journalism's fall can't come fast enough

    The crumbling of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is a huge boon to mankind worldwide. Imagine that God-awful propaganda machine that redefines bottom-feeding for conservatives and idiots (same thing) silenced. All Fox, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, many others internationally, all gone.

  • We are losing our freedom just a little at a time

    I wish to comment on the letter from Dianne Dowdler, “Dog owner should not be penalized.” I agree with you, you just didn’t go far enough. Everyone has a passion.
    If you take these animals from Lawrence Sherrill, you might as well just kill him along with his dogs. You will have killed his spirit. The dogs are his family, companions and friends.
    A recent article said the animal shelter kills between 25 to 35 cats and dogs per week. This is America – this should not be happening here.

  • Blackmon-Brace to share her business acumen

    As a woman, I know only too well how few tributes are made to women in our mostly male-oriented business arena.
    I learned recently that a local, female, public servant, whom I personally respect for her many years of service in our communities, was offered an opportunity that most women can only dream of.
    A group of professional women from Myrtle Beach, aptly named Phenomenal Women, requested this phenomenal woman, out of many candidates, to honor them by speaking at a seminar that extols the business acumen of women in a male-dominated arena.

  • Literacy Council appreciates support

    The 10th Annual Family Literacy Fair was a success again this year thanks to the agencies that participated and the community members who came out to enjoy the event.  
    On behalf of the Lancaster County Literacy Council, Lancaster County Library and BEST AmeriCorps, I would like to thank the following local businesses for making it possible for this family friendly event to remain free to everyone:  Sonic, SnoBiz, CarQuest and Food Lion.

  • A love letter and challenge to Lancaster

    For those who don’t know me, I’m Jody Miles, director of Christian Services. Perhaps, you’ve followed my story in The Lancaster News. I am the one blessed with a new beginning as a result of a successful liver transplant last November.
    I want my community to know your prayers and friendship have touched me and so many others. Everywhere I go people say how encouraging my story is and that my outcome inspires hope for their own situations.

  • Dog owner should not be penalized

  • Let council know that we want best for our future

    I am concerned about Lancaster County Council and the citizens of Lancaster County. Now that my children are older, I have turned my sights on keeping our county afloat amidst the financial uncertainty.

  • ‘Chinese’ auction is not an appropriate term

    I would like to express my concern over an expression that is frequently used in The Lancaster News. Almost once a week, some group suggests that it will be holding a Chinese auction.
    I believe some other description would be more appropriate. I do not understand how it is acceptable to use an adjective describing more than one billion of the world’s population to describe an auction.
    If this is acceptable, then perhaps other ethnic groups would not mind if their names were hooked onto specific fundraisers.

  • Writer wants same appraiser county uses

    There was a story in the June 15 edition of The Lancaster New about residents concerned about proposed tax hikes by Lancaster County Council.
    The story said council bought property for the Buford EMS station for $233,038 and that price was based on appraised value.
    The county will now be spending taxpayer money to demolish and remove the buildings on the new EMS property in addition to building the new station. My issue is not with having a new EMS station in Buford, because I definetly think one is needed. My issue is with the amount of spending by County Council.

  • Wake-up call to stop the nonsense in Washington

    I am sick and tired of the federal government pushing its unconstitutional agendas down our throats. 

    First, it shoved a useless so-called stimulus plan down our throats, (using our hard-earned tax dollars), then an unconstitutional health-care law, which will force government control of health care. 

    Now, it is ethanol in the gas pumps, which causes our cars to burn more gas and eventually will ruin the fuel systems in vehicles not built to run with ethanol.
