• Stop believing lies, follow the truth

    In John 1: 4, John writes to a friend in church and says: I could have no greater joy than to hear that our people and children are following the truth.
    Our own people are not looking or following the truth today.
    Letter writer Sheila Bickford claims civil rights as a Democrat supported policy.
    The DNC website in its “Our Party Our History” section also starts out with a lie by saying, “For more than 200 years our party has led the fight for civil rights...”

  • Thieves steal pet, but not my heart

    This letter is directed to the thieves who broke our hearts by taking our beloved pit bull, Zebo.
    While the thieves stole our pet, they cannot take our hearts.
    The thieves also broke Zebo’s heart and soul.
    Zebo, I love you – a love that cannot be taken.
    To the thieves: What gives you the right that you can take what does not belong to you?

  • Letter writer speaks from experience

    I would like to give thanks to all who were named and those not named who helped in the arrest of Hell’s Angels. It takes persistence and great determination to accomplish what you all have accomplished. I realize that it is not over and that there will be more court hearings and testimonies to be given.
    I also want to encourage you all to not give up. Your courage, unity and faith got you this far. They will carry you through to the final verdicts. There are people praying for all of you. The number of prayer warriors is off the charts.

  • Proud to be a Christian

    I am proud to attend church every Sunday to worship my God, Jesus Christ. I am proud to live in the greatest country in the world, America. I am proud to have volunteered in the military, served four years and received an honorable discharge. I am proud to volunteer to help those in need. I am proud to give and lend financial help where the need requires.  
    I am proud to live under the laws of freedom’s documents (the Constitution and Bill of Rights). I am proud to stand at attention when the American flag passes before me.

  • Obama grants our few jobs to illegal immigrants

    President Barack Obama recently used his powers to temporarily block deportation and ease work rules for some illegal immigrants.
    So, now President Obama is granting illegal immigrants the opportunity to seize the limited jobs available in an ever-deepening recession.
    In spite of his irrational decision, President Obama is now facing a 2012 college and university graduating class, who voted for him and helped him win the 2008 presidential election, now finding a shrinking and/or disappearing job market under his failing economic policies.

  • Here’s why I’m voting for Joyce Knott

    Considering what has transpired in Congress over the past two years: the country’s credit degrade, nearly defaulting on our debt obligations, paralysis on getting any bills passed (on the budget or otherwise), no willingness to compromise due to lobbyist influence and little evidence of Congress reflecting on how all this affects citizens and the country as a whole, I believe it is time for a change this November.

  • Proud to be a ‘radical’ Republican

    I am proud to be a Republican because of our past accomplishments and what we are trying to accomplish today.

  • Size of papers reflect sour economy

    I am fortunate to have a subscription to our hometown newspaper. Clicking through the latest edition I ran across comments regarding the online version. One reader was no longer able to subscribe due to financial difficulties and wondered why The Lancaster News doesn’t offer free access like some other area newspapers.

  • Children appreciate Greek Week

    Pan-Hellenic Greek Week was a success. The youth who attended expressed their appreciation by saying how much they enjoyed the programs and activities. They said they had fun and were grateful for the information shared during the week. More than 80 children participated during the weeklong activities.
    On Monday night, the children heard from presenters and speakers – Johnnie Dewese, retired teacher from Lancaster City schools; the Rev. AnThony Pelham of Faith, Hope and Victory Church; and the Rev. DeMarkus Thompson, a military recruiter.

  • Democrats put hypocrisy in practice

    Lately there have been several examples of  blatant display of Democrat hypocrisy. One was when the Massachusetts Democrat Convention started on June 2. On page 14 of the convention program under registration and credentials was a statement that a photo ID was required before entering the Massmutual Center.
    The second example was when Michele Obama’s book, “American Grown,” went on sale in Washington, D.C. On June 12, she held her first book-signing. Again, those attending the book-signing were required to have a photo ID.
