Letters

  • Letter: Trump’s talk is crude, but I like his results

    I write this in response to Christine M. Taylor’s Nov. 16 letter to the editor comparing President Trump with President Obama.
    She wrote that Trump’s economic successes are “piggy-backing on what Obama did.”

  • Letter: A modest proposal on campaign signs

    It seems candidates are much more interested in putting their signs out on roadsides rather than in being responsible and collecting them after elections.  
    My proposal is to give candidates three days to collect their signs. If they don’t collect them, any citizen can collect signs still out, return them to the elections staff and collect $1 per sign. Then the candidate’s campaign will be billed for uncollected signs.
    Perhaps then the unsightly clutter of political signs after elections will end.

  • Letter: Love is the key, but no love for Trump?

    In response to Christine M. Taylor’s criticism of Ronald Hopkins’ comments, I happen to enjoy reading Mr. Hopkins letters to the editor and see a lot of truth in them.
    Ms. Taylor stated that President Trump is piggy-backing on President Obama and that Trump is tearing down what Obama was “trying” to put into place. How can you tear apart something that is not yet in place?

  • 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.
