  • Letter: Best of luck, Chief Carter

    I would like to thank retiring Lancaster Police Chief Harlean Carter and wish her a blessed life.
    I called her a lot and prayed for her department, and also Sheriff Barry Faile and his department.
    I also would like to thank all county and city officers for their hard work and to ask the public to pray for them. God bless.

  • Letter: Act of kindness deserves thanks

    In Walmart on Nov. 26, I was behind a friendly and nice lady with a cart loaded with merchandise. I remarked to her that she had really good luck shopping.
    When I started to pay for my purchases, the cashier advised that the lady before me had paid for mine. I was so surprised and so appreciative. But I didn’t get to thank her.
    To this wonderful and kind person, I wish to say a big thank you! You made my day, and I will definitely pass it on to make someone else very happy. Thank you!

  • Letter: Coach Mayer deserves some credit

    I do not know Indian Land coach Mike Mayer. Nor do I know Van Wyck resident Jimmy Fox. And I know little to nothing about football.
    But that does not matter. What does matter is that Mr. Fox, the “Voice of the Warriors,” spoke out and gave readers some very interesting and notable facts. Clearly, the facts that he stated in Friday’s Lancaster News guest column, “Mayer a good coach,” cannot easily be disputed.

  • Column: Let’s not love S.C. rivers to death

    Recently, I was invited to speak to the Friends of the Edisto River and I met Hugo Krispyn, who lives on the headwaters of the North Fork of the Edisto. He wrote this about the dangers facing the Edisto and other S.C. rivers.

  • Column: Sometimes change is a business necessity

    I have heard it all my life. Change is inevitable. Change is constant.
    Many changes have taken place at The Lancaster News during my 31 years at the paper. Most of them you never noticed. Like when we switched from manually pasting up pages to producing them on computers. Or when we installed one piece of state-of-the-art equipment that reduced our press start-up time, and another that increased our color capacity throughout the paper.

  • Column: Mayer a good coach

    Mike Mayer is an extremely good coach. 

    When I was growing up, my mother, who was always concerned with good morals and ethics, said, “Jimmy, if you cannot say anything good about a person, don’t say anything.” I am sorry that some of you did not have that kind of upbringing. So I am going to say only good things about coach Mike Mayer. But before I do, I want to ask two questions.

  • Column: Believers can maintain hope in trials

    The account of John the Baptist’s birth in Luke 1 gives hope to believers in Christ who experience trials.

    Zacharias and Elizabeth were an elderly Jewish couple from a small rural town in Judah. They believed in God and lived a godly life. Zachariah was a priest, and his wife came from a priestly family.

  • Letter: New Medicare benefit in 2017 helps Alzheimer’s patients plan care

    November is National Family Caregivers Month. This is important to me because every day I see individuals and families whose lives have been completely turned upside down by Alzheimer’s disease.

    As a member of the S.C. Alzheimer’s Association Board of Directors and the owner of a home-care organization serving Lancaster, York and Chester counties, I have the opportunity to assist families in navigating through this horrible disease, but more help is needed.
