  • Bin Laden’s death brings relief to local family

    Thank you for this opportunity to share our thoughts with you regarding this matter:

  • Clemson’s priorities are athletics, not academics

    Clemson’s priorities are athletics, not academics

    Clemson University’s Will To Lead capital campaign will allocate $200 million to 400 scholarship athletes ($500,000 per athlete) and $400 million to 16,000 non-athletes ($25,000 per student), a 20 to 1 ratio. 

    Incredibly, Clemson has spent $120 million during the past 10 years on athletic facilities or $1 million per month.

  • Friends keep friends voting

    As an elected official, I am aware how hard it can be to get some people interested in voting. In 1973, when I was able to register to vote, I had no interest whatsoever in doing so.
    My best friend, Randolph English, said, “If you do not vote, I have nothing more to say to you.”
    To maintain our friendship, in 1988, 15 years after I was eligible to register, I did so and have been an active participant ever since.

  • Employees should be allowed to attend services

    It is so sad when Christian employees who want to attend church on Sundays but cannot because they have to work. Some people say these employees should stand up to their boss and demand they that they be off. If you want to keep your job, you can’t do that. People have to make a living. And that is not easy in this day and time.
    It’s especially tough for these people when they have to work on Christmas and Easter. Usually stores are not that busy during church service times.

  • Daughter grateful for her father’s recognition  

    I am writing, first, to thank my Aunt Agnes Crawford Conway for the letter she wrote about my father concerning the history of the Pleasant Valley Fire Department.
    My father was the fire chief from 1956 until he and my mother’s deaths in an auto accident in 1971. This history was documented in a cookbook published in 1988 or 1989.
    I can remember the men who were so committed to the fire department at that time. Most of them are gone now, but some of their wives are still with us today.

  • Letter writer apologizes for hurting family

    I’m sorry for the things I’ve put my family and their families through, as well as other families I’ve hurt in the process.
    And I want to reassure them that I will return to the person I was before I screwed up the last 15 years of my life.
    I want them to know that nothing was done intentionally to physically hurt anyone. But no excuses. I know, as well as you, that I can do better. And I will.
    God bless you all.

  • Businesses should value customer service

    Spring break finally arrived. I decided months ago it would be the perfect time to schedule doctor appointments for my teenage middle school daughter.
    Our dental exams were scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on April 18. Arriving 30 minutes early, I spoke with the lady at the front desk. She couldn’t find our appointment time or date. She repeatedly asked questions, constantly asking our last names. My daughter was a new patient, but I was not. She suggested I may be at the wrong doctor. I didn’t even know the doctor she mentioned.

  • Letter: Fix, don’t patch all county roads

    It’s a shame what Lancaster County and the  S.C. Department of Transportation are doing to the roads in my area. Flint Ridge, Earl Cauthen and Rob Neal roads are a disaster waiting to happen. The crews that are “fixing” the potholes and craters in these roads are a joke. They are patching the small places, but leaving the most dangerous spots wide open for someone to tear their cars up when they hit them, because you cannot even go off the side of the road to miss them anymore.

  • Letter: Four percent for all

    I am always amazed at The Lancaster News and how it handles stories in Lancaster County. It all depends on who you are as to how the news is reported about you. I am well known for some of the good things I do in the community, yet most of those things never seem to make it into the paper.

  • Letter: Desser victim of Democratic propaganda

    I see that Lou Desser is another Democrat who believes the propaganda that is  fed to him.
    Perhaps he can tell us: What is the difference between the  federal medical plan U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney has vs. all the Democrats in the House and  Senate?
    He states that 45,000 people died due to lack of health care. Did he read the recent survey of how many died due to medical errors? Can he explain why they did not go to emergency rooms or receive care from Medicaid? If you went bankrupt, then you probably chose not to buy coverage or seek assistance.
