• Letter: If you smell something, do something!

    Editor’s note: This page usually focuses on matters of public concern – taxes, schools, politics, immigration, terrorism and the like. Not today. We offer you one of the funniest letters we have ever received. Enjoy.

    They lived under our house for four or five months. They had free air-conditioning and heat. They were quiet – we never heard a sound. They came out at night to eat, and lived under the house. They were so nasty. They used the bathroom all around.

  • Letter: Last minute gift idea: Donate!

    My son, now 13, has autism. He is developmentally behind, so he’s like a very large 3-year-old. His only interests are beads and pocket-sized trucks – not cars, pickup trucks only.
    There are only so many pickup trucks to be found in the toy aisle, and chances are pretty good that he already has at least one of each. Beads come four for a dollar at any discount store, and I already have enough on hand to keep him well-supplied through his 40s.

  • Letter: Some candidates are boosting ISIS recruitment worldwide

    This is a response to Dr. Brooks Walker’s “fear-mongering” article in the Dec. 9 edition of  The Lancaster News, which was a response to my article of Nov. 25.
    Walker says we should “come together and seek truth” in this immigration issue. But we cannot, due to persistent rhetoric by presidential candidates who insist on keeping their radical ideas on TV every day of the week. They help ISIS in their recruitment all over the world.

  • Letter: Heartland Church thanks BBQ buyers

  • Letter: Bad intersection on Flat Creek Road

    My wife and I have lived at 2379 Flat Creek Road for 13 years. During this time the traffic sign on the median strip at the turning lane in front of our house has been run over and knocked into the road at least five times, the most recent on Sunday morning Nov. 15, about an hour before sunrise.
    Each time I have removed the sign from the roadway to prevent further damage to vehicles. We call the highway department each time and have suggested they should remove the weeds and repaint the curbing to make it more visible. We asked this again when we called Monday morning.

  • Letter: Let’s get serious about next president

    I’m from a different era. Folks had concerns back then – jobs, economy and safety – but about the greatest difference was the way folks acted. They didn’t just say a bunch of raw stuff against the president of the United States.

  • Letter: Immigration brings America strength

    This is a response to Bruce Miller’s recent articles on restricting immigration.
    Let’s look at what has happened to America in the last 50 years.  America is the land of opportunity, and you get what you make out of it. Opportunities are not far scarcer today, as Miller writes, they are just different.
    Did a company named Apple exist 50 years ago? Obviously, someone saw an opportunity, and those ideals exist for those who are fortunate enough to get to America.

  • Letter: Trump displays wisdom

    Like most young men growing up, I had to endure a bunch of advice from my father.  To tell the truth, I should have listened carefully and followed his direction.
    Now, I sort of settle in and “play back” some of his words.  Let me share this one with you, “Son, don’t elect a poor man (or woman) into office, cause they will steal you blind.”  That really hit home. There is a man running for president who appears to be quite well off and is spending his own money to get elected.

  • Letter: A sincere thanks to White Oak

    This letter is to express my sincere appreciation to the administration and staff of White Oak Manor Nursing Home of Lancaster. Their professionalism, expertise, caring and compassion have been lifesaving and instrumental in providing appropriate medical and emotional support to me and my family when needed.
    Every department gets involved in the total care that is essential for the well-being of those entrusted to White Oak Manor as residents.

  • Letter: Conservative Trump thrived amid liberals

    A lot of folks think that Donald Trump is a celebrity and businessman who is running for president but doesn’t know much about politics and government and has no experience in it.
    Let me tell you what I know about Donald Trump and his experience as an active, conservative, grass-roots Republican.
