Letters

  • Letter: Trump triumphed where Obama failed

    President Trump’s successful economic recovery has little to do with President Obama’s failed effort.
    During Obama’s term interest rates stayed near or at zero, but they have risen seven times during Trump’s term so far. Money was printed furiously so the government could buy it’s own debt under Obama. Robbed Peter to pay Paul, a sleight-of-hand trick to make things look better than the failed policies were actually doing, and a main reason the stock market didn’t flop.

  • Letter: The faithful are not exempt from tragedy

    This is in response to Ronald Hopkins’ letter in Sunday’s paper about whether God protects only some of those who pray for protection.
    The Lord is real. It is faith that keeps you going through murders, accidents that leave you totally disabled, and the loss of your family members and friends. We all have a time to be born and a time to die.
    How arrogant we would be to say: “I believe in God, so nothing bad is ever going to happen to me or my family.”

  • Letter: MDA fundraiser no waste of money

    In response to Linda Headrick’s letter, “Reader mad about MDA fundraiser,” let me assure you that your hard-earned money did not go to waste. MDA is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and more than 40 neuromuscular diseases.

  • Letter: Does God guard only some who ask for it?

    A person wrote in recently stating that luck had no part in Lancaster being spared the wrath of Tropical Storm Michael, but that it was God’s answer to prayers.
    But what about those people who were hit, some dying? I’m sure they prayed too. So is this person saying God helped some and said “too bad” to others? Or is he stating that the ones who suffered are sinners? What exactly is he stating?

  • Letter: Departing McCorkle salutes local schools

    During the past 12 years, it has been my good fortune to have served on the Lancaster County school board. I can honestly say that the members with whom I have served were and are totally dedicated to the well-being of the young people of Lancaster County.
    The accomplishments have been many – even though the circumstances under which we worked were, at times, difficult. The school administration, on all levels, has always offered sound solutions to problems and concerns that needed to be addressed. They deserve to be commended for their professionalism and efforts.

  • Letter: Back Neil Couch for school board

    I am a voter in school board District 5, and I support Neil Couch. Neil has the teaching experience, coaching experience and business experience to serve our county as a well-rounded school board member.
    Neil will bring a much-needed, fresh, young perspective to the school board. Please vote for him. He has the experience to make a real difference for all students in Lancaster County schools.

  • Letter: Buskey is unknown quantity in House District 45 race

    With so many early voters, I really wonder if voters in District 45 know the issues each candidate is running on.
    Brandon Newton seems head and tails over Corin Buskey. He took the time to answer the newspaper’s background questionnaire, which tells us a lot about the candidates.
    We know nothing about Buskey, other than she’s worked 17 years in corporate America.
    Has she really tried to find out what District 45 wants? No one in our subdivision seems to know anything about her.

  • Letter: It’s our turn! Vote yes on rec bond

    Over the nearly three decades we have lived in Lancaster County, we have had the fortunate experiences of cheering on our three boys at soccer and baseball tournaments throughout South Carolina.
    Those tournaments will always be a part of our family’s memories. Wonderful, wholesome memories of kids playing a sport they loved and working as a team to accomplish a goal.

  • Letter: Lancaster greenway makes little sense

    I hate to be the only dissenting view on this recreation bond, but I don’t know what we need an environmental education center for.
    Most people are aware of pollution, their environment, and how they can be better patrons of those by being less – pardon the word – slobs.
    Do we need a center, costing who knows what, just to get out information that’s already out there? Just go to the web. You’ll find plenty on how you can do a better job, and how to protect our environment.

  • Letter: Recreation essential for healthy county

    According to the Trust for Public Land, “a 10-minute walk to a park is an important indicator of the livability of a community.” Recreation opportunities are an essential component that contributes to the physical and environmental health of a community.
    Many communities are seeing economic success in creating vibrant, active environments that promote healthy lifestyles. Recreation facilities and greenways increase tourism, enhance property values, and attract families and businesses to the region due to increased amenities.
