  • Letter: President, Congress not really in charge

    America is supposed to be one nation under God, but our nation has turned its back on God.
    We must go back to prayer in schools and everywhere else. Our Supreme Court has made some very bad decisions, but God can overrule them. We elect a president, U.S. House and Senate, but they are not in charge. God is.
    People are going crazy, murdering in our schools, our churches, movie theaters. When your husband or wife goes to work and your children go to school, be sure to hug them and tell them you love them. It might be the last time you see them.

  • Letter: Thanks for coverage honoring local vets

    The Lancaster News’ support of American veterans over the years has been outstanding.
    I served in the Navy from 1956 to 1960, and I appreciate what you do to recognize Lancaster County veterans. The Nov. 7 edition of the newspaper was filled with community support and thanks to all our local veterans, which makes all of us very proud.

  • Letter: Trump piggy-backing on Obama’s progress

    I am writing in response to Ronald Hopkins’ letter last Friday headlined “Trump triumphed where Obama failed.”
    President Obama was successful with his economy. Trump is piggy-backing on what Obama did and tearing down things that he was going to put into place.

  • Letter: Thank you, voters, for your support

    I just wanted to thank the residents of Indian Land for their support during the recent school board election.
    I have already hit the ground running. I plan to begin meeting with our local schools very soon so that I can find out what our teachers need to be able to best serve the educational needs of our community.
    During my term I promise to always be available to all of you. I am a firm believer that education takes the combined efforts of the schools, the parents and the community as a whole.

  • 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.
