  • Letter: Thanking Mulvaney for help on Dexcom

    I want to share some good news with Lancaster News readers who responded to my letter to the editor last June 22. I asked for prayer on behalf of Sandra Knight Howard as she and her team of physicians sought help getting her the Dexcom glucose monitor she needed from Medicare.
    Sandra was in dire need of this device because she had been diagnosed as severely diabetic and the pump would alert her when her breathing becomes dangerously low as she sleeps.

  • Letter: Israelites wandered 40 years, not days

    In response to Christine Taylor’s letter from Friday, the Israelites actually wandered the desert for 40 years, not 40 days and 40 nights.
    That was the length of time that Noah, his family and the animals spent on the ark.

  • Letter: The left is killing American culture

    Many folks have stated on this page that we are in a mess. Some opinionators say the Republicans are the problem, and others blame the Democrats.
    I believe the problem is that we as a nation have turned away from God and turned to the state as our god.
    The George Soros Socialist Democrats are in a rage across America. They are running amuck because they ignore the laws of the land and only accept what they want. These people see no wrong in their actions because they are the arbiters of truth, right and wrong.

  • Column: Republicans obstructed Obama? In many cases, they enabled him

    In his March 20 response to my earlier article, Michael Jedson contends that the Republicans said “no to anything/everything Obama tried to get through Congress.”
    What about the $800 billion stimulus approved in 2009 that disappeared into big bank bailouts and crony projects like Solyndra without creating many shovel-ready jobs or green-energy programs?
    What about Obama’s two Supreme Court appointments, which many Republicans supported? One of them boasted of having a Hispanic and feminist agenda in her mind, which should have disqualified her.

  • Column: Mullikin gets backing of top Mulvaney aide

    I am endorsing Tom Mullikin to replace U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney in South Carolina’s 5th District. My reasoning is simple: Tom is the best man for the job.
    That said, this is not an endorsement I take lightly, nor did I decide to lend my support without great reflection and consideration. Fact is, I have other friends in the district who are also campaigning for Mick’s former House seat.

  • Column: These S.C. ethics bodies just aren’t working — and we have proof

    Last week the S.C. House approved the first round of nominees for the state’s new Ethics Commission, and Sen. John Courson appeared before a judge to post bond dealing with criminal ethics-violation charges.
    These two events, which happened within hours of each other, are the perfect backdrop to show how South Carolina’s current ethics system has failed us and how the law that will take effect this month will likely suffer the same fate.

  • Letter: Parnell’s expertise will solve problems

    I am writing to express my full support for Democrat Archie Parnell to fill the 5th District congressional seat left open by Republican Mick Mulvaney’s appointment in the president’s administration.
    At this critical time in our district’s and country’s history, this special election presents a unique chance to flip the 5th District back from Republican to Democratic control.

  • Letter: America wanders like the Israelites

    I am writing because it seems as if we are living in a world where we are as lost as the Israelites were in the wilderness for 40 days and 40-nights.
    The handwriting is on the wall. Please read it, President Trump.
    Paul Ryan’s health-care bill was for the rich, not for the working poor. President Reagan once said, “There is no more middle class now. It is the working poor.” So watch yourself when you talk about the “poor.” The only difference is that they don’t have a job.
