  • Former trooper defends his recreational activity

  • Educate people about government, Constitution

    Sure, this election is historic on several fronts, but this is not a time to back-slap ourselves silly. There’s enough wrong that has to be fixed in all areas of state and federal government.
    Take a quick look at the people of South Carolina. I’m totally confounded how 308,000 South Carolinians could seriously review their ballots and still select the likes of Alvin Green to be their representative. It’s disturbing. Talking heads say “they obviously voted a straight ticket.”  

  • Red Ventures rejects people with Lancaster addresses

    I have read several opinion columns about Red Ventures’ entrance to Indian Land. I am an insurance professional who is licensed in 11 states to sell life, accident and health insurance.

  • Writer: Mayor Shaw is an 'honest man'

    Congratulations to Wilma Blackmon on the letter she wrote on Mayor Joe Shaw. He is a very dedicated mayor and an honest man.
    My personal experience is I was eating in a restaurant in Lancaster. When I got to the cashier with my tray, I did not have any money. I had to tell the cashier to hold my tray until I found my wallet.
    Mayor Shaw and his loving wife, Charlotte, came to my aid. He offered to pay for my lunch. I told him I had just been to the bank, so his wife said, “Let’s go to the car and look.” There was my wallet on the front seat.

  • Thank men, women who serve our country

    Our men and women fight under red, white and blue.
    They fight to defend me and you. A lot of them have gave their all. This country must never fall. We must defend her under all costs.
    America stands for what is right and to defend her, our men and women must fight.
    God bless our country, red, white and blue.
    And to all our servicemen and women, we thank you.

  • Pennies today needed to buy necessities

    Rosemary Whitlock’s fine article on the funding for our new courthouse leaves me sorta wondering.
    The days she recalls, when leftover pennies were shoved aside, have changed some.
    Pennies are now saved in Mason jars and counted out when the heel in the bread loaf is all that remains.

  • White Oak grateful for act of kindness

    On behalf of all of our residents, their family members and our employees, White Oak Manor-Lancaster would like to extend a very warm thank you to Home Depot of Lancaster for its recent act of kindness. 
    The flower beds installed by Team Home Depot are absolutely a welcome addition to our facility. Their thoughtfulness and attention to detail continue to amaze everyone who has been out to see the gardens.=

  • Stradford makes us proud to be Americans

    I was privileged recently to meet an outstanding citizen of our community. I would like to recognize him and thank him publicly for his kindness and generosity.
    While there are many among us who would do us harm and whose troubled lives are constantly in the headlines, this gentleman, through word and deed, demonstrated all that is noble and good about himself and so many others like him in our community.

  • PTSD vets don't shoot each other with paint balls

    I am writing regarding the Oct. 20th article, “Former trooper helps others cope with stress disorder.”
    John Rutledge Jr. was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when someone shot into his brick house when he was not at home.
    I am a Vietnam veteran, who was wounded twice and also diagnosed with PTSD. I know many fellow veterans, who are suffering with PTSD. We all agree that we don’t go out on weekends and shoot each other with paint-ball guns.

  • Series on firefighters was 'excellent'

    The Lancaster News series on Lancaster County firefighters was excellent.
    I have enjoyed reading about each departmentin our county.
    We’ve learned how they managed their many problems, the way they survived under sometimes terrible conditions and their willingness to set a goal and exceed that goal.
