  • Oglesby letter: VW post office vital part of community

    The Van Wyck post office was the subject of a community meeting July 9.
    The meeting was scheduled to be held at the post office, but was moved to the community center, due to threatening weather and the large crowd trying to fit into our tiny “village post office.”
    It seems that small towns across America are losing the heart of their community as the U.S. Postal Service downsizes, closing or drastically reducing counter service hours.

  • Noble column: S.C. motto: ‘While I breathe I hope’ – really?

    South Carolina’s motto, “While I breathe I hope,” is surely the most optimistic statement anyone can make. Despite all, if we can draw a breath, we are hopeful and optimistic.

  • Miller column: There’s no room for renegades

    Why does the world continue to cater to the ultimate spoiled child?
    When a child with homicidal tendencies acts out, he or she is usually put away somewhere safe, for the good of everyone.
    What happens when this spoiled child is the renegade, insane leader of a nuclear power? What happens when this monster kills his own, openly and without remorse, just to show the world he can?
    Is there any question who I am referring to?

  • Republicans dominate at ballot box

    Lancaster County Republicans have much to be proud of in the recent Republican primary elections.

    The strong turnout in the June 10 election provided more proof of the county’s growing embrace of the Republican Party, as roughly four times as many voters chose to vote in the Republican primary (4,472-952) than the Democratic primary. It is a telling sign that in a stronghold of Democrats like Jim Hodges and the late Tom Mangum when a Republican Party primary has a four-to-one advantage over the Democratic primary.

  • Woman grateful road is paved

     

    I would like to thank Boggs Paving Co. for fixing a road that badly needing fixing – Boxcar Road. I live on Boxcar Road and I am so glad that we don’t have to dodge all of the potholes. Thank you, again.

    Now, if we could just get Riverside Road and a lot of other roads in Lancaster fixed.

  • Writer: Walker’s columns creditable and well-written

    I applaud and encourage the insightful and informative guest columns submitted by Brooks Walker and frequently published on the opinion page of The Lancaster News.

    Many should – and no doubt do – appreciate the well-written, well-cited facts that he presents in a direct, creditable manner.

    In the June 29 edition, his column, “There’s a time when loyalty is not a virtue,” his skillful analogy of the Nordic lemming to the low-informed voter is of particular note in its creativity and in its merit.

  • Sen. Scott to honor Vietnam veterans Aug. 2 in Columbia

    On Aug. 2, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott will host a special ceremony in Columbia to honor South Carolina’s Vietnam War era veterans for their service to our country.

    During the ceremony at the First Baptist Church of Columbia, 1306 Hampton St., Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. James Everett Livingston, retired from U.S. Marine Corps, will deliver the keynote address. Military bands from around South Carolina will perform and military artifacts and memorabilia from the era will be on display.

  • Fox News intelligent source?

    In the June 29 edition of The Lancaster News, John Lage blasts Carolyn Taylor’s rebuttal article for the inclusion of her educational background.

    Then, Mr. Lage praises television’s Fox News, which is apparently his source of intellect. Nuf said!
