  • Letter: Sen. Gregory should stop blaming the gun

    Maybe Sen. Greg Gregory could get off the blame-the-gun mentality and set his sights on the two culprits in the Florida shooting.
    One was the government authorities bungling this case, and the other is mental illness. Obviously the senator is ignorant of why we the people have Second Amendment rights.
    The left has no incentive to stop these shootings, for if they did, they would enforce the laws on the books and work to keep the mentally ill from getting their hands on a gun.

  • Letter: Need baseball fields in south of county

    It’s that time of year again! Spring is trying to emerge, but we true Southerners know winter is probably not done, and the coaches in Heath Springs and Kershaw compete for field position to practice soccer and baseball.
    But wait, Heath Springs has no baseball fields. They have been turned into soccer fields, and there are three or four teams on those two soccer fields at the same time.

  • Letter: Grateful for school safety upgrades here

    Congratulations and thank you to the Lancaster County officials who had the foresight to obtain funds to upgrade the security hardware and procedures in our public schools.
    Their pro-active stance is what is needed to keep our students and teachers safe.
    Their actions are preferred to the impotent “Why doesn’t Congress do something?” response to school violence. And they are preferable to the impractical “Let’s ban the AR-15,” the most widely used semi-automatic long gun in America.

  • Letter: Sincere prayers for Parkers, Howards

    This letter is to the families of Bobby Parker Sr. and Mayor John Howard.
    To the Parker family, know that you are in my prayers. God bless you all in this time of loss.
    To the family of Mayor Howard, may God put angels around him and grant him a full and speedy recovery. He is in my prayers also.

  • Letter: VTIL going after too much farmland

    On Saturday, Feb. 10, my wife and I took a ride down to the southern end of Indian Land. Since we live near 160 and 521, we pretty much covered the length of Indian Land.
    We drove around the area up and down a number of side roads to get a feel of what Voters for a Town of Indian Land wants to incorporate. It is appalling the amount of farmland they want to include in the town.
    We understand it is about 40 square miles of the 58 square miles they want to include, but you don’t realize how much this is until you see it.

  • Letter: Valentine visits to VA hospital

    This Valentine’s Day, many S.C. veterans who fought to preserve our freedoms will be hospitalized, receiving the medical care they earned, but separated from the homes and communities they defended. 
    No one should be alone on Valentine’s Day, and with the help of our grateful community, no veteran has to be.

  • Letter: Let’s all pray for Mayor Howard

    I am writing this letter for myself and all other citizens of Lancaster, to express the thoughts and prayers that are in all our hearts regarding Mayor John Howard.
    We all know John’s illness is taking a toll on him. I am asking each citizen to add their own private prayers on behalf of John, asking God to watch over him and help him recover from this illness.
    Thank you.

  • Letter: Logic questioned on banning guns

    Every time someone is shot and killed, there is a hue and cry to ban guns. But no one ever says anything about banning liquor when someone is killed by a drunk driver.
    On another matter, if they are convicted, the parents of the 13 children tortured in California should be lined up before a firing squad and eliminated.

  • Letter: Let’s celebrate progress, plan future

    Since we were first brought to these shores, African-Americans have played a vital role in the history of our nation. There have been incredibly hard times, and there have been giant steps forward.
    Black History Month is no longer simply about where we have been, but also to remind ourselves of where we can go in the future.
    We stand on the shoulders of giants, not just Dr. King or Rosa Parks, but the Friendship Nine, Jo Ann Robinson, and Mary Moultrie as well. In the darkest  times, they taught us all what it truly means to be an American.

  • Letter: Regional apartment manager thanks Lancaster firefighters

    I am a regional manager for Pendergraph Management, and I manage apartment properties in North and South Carolina.

    On Jan. 2, I received a call from the company that monitors our fire-sprinkler alarms, saying we had an alarm going off at one of our Lancaster complexes.
