Letters

  • Elyse’s death should not be forgotten

    This letter is in response to the letter to the editor, “No Need to Bring up Previous Fatalities.”   I am Susan Hardin, mother of the late Elyse Rebecca Hardin. The car crash that took Elyse’slife has been mentioned in several articles since her death. I would first like to state that I speak only for our family. I would never be so disrespectful as to speak for the other families who have also lost a child. They continue to be in our thoughts and prayers daily.

  • Landfill opponent appreciates support

    I would like to thank everyone who had any part in helping us get where we are in the Mining Road Solid Waste Landfill process. We still need your prayers and support because the landfill process is not over by any means.
    The landfill will mess up a beautiful view from the White Bluff Church front porch. It will eventually cause the eastern part of Lancaster to die because we already have a maximum-security prison and a gold mine that has bought thousands of acres of land. No one wants to live in such an environment.

  • We need new leadership in Senate

    Brian Carnes is a successful small-businessman, and I think those who make it in the business world are the real leaders and voices of our state and country. They know how to take a risk and build upon it.
    They have the common sense to make right decisions when serving in government, not just the politically correct decisions to get re-elected again and again or move up the food chain as many in office have done.

  • Carnes will represent District 16 well

    I am so happy that Brian Carnes is running for the S.C. Senate District 16 seat. It is time to get a new face in Columbia. 

    We need someone who will actually care about the people they serve and I truly believe that Brian is that person.

    Brian is a person of integrity, a team player and a person with a strong and proven work ethic. He has been representing the people in District 16 very well already, serving as a school board member for eight years, as a local firefighter and as a local small business owner. 

  • 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.
