• Woman grateful for lunch treat

    I would like to thank the nice couple who recently treated me to lunch at Pizza Inn. I didn’t know my lunch was paid for until I went to the register. I don’t know who they are and never got their names. It was a wonderful treat, but doubly special because it was my birthday. They had no way of knowing that.

    Thank you again for such a nice gesture. I enjoyed it and meeting such a nice couple.

  • Organization grateful for support

    We are grateful for those who partner with us. On behalf of Child Evangelism Fellowship, Catawba River Chapter, the committee would like to thank all the sponsors, donors and guests who participated in our recent fall banquet, held Oct. 29.

    A special thank you to churches, clubs, individuals and volunteers who became partners with us for the cause of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with our youth. It is wonderful to have the youth meet with volunteers and are willing to go the extra mile to teach in after-school programs the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

  • Kudos to St. Luke Methodist Church

    On behalf of the men and women of the Chester/Lancaster Disabilities Association, it is with a heartfelt thank you that I commend you on the beautiful manner in which St. Luke Methodist Church family graciously received our group on Sunday, Dec. 8.

    It was a pleasure and definitely an honor to be in your presence. The service that was rendered to us was genuine and a blessing from God.

    First of all, the youth who worked to make the occasion a success were awesome, personable and very attentive to needs of our consumers in a professional and godly manner.

  • Democrat mission – we want more stuff

    I read Democrat Phil Noble’s guest column, “Business, innovation and the four states of S.C.,” in the Dec. 13 edition of The Lancaster News looking for the punch line. I found it.

    After getting through his fund-raising travels across our great state, and telling us what we already knew about it, it, of course, ends with the Democrat mission statement – we want more stuff.

    Well, Mr. Noble, it is up to government to protect you, using funds from the taxpayers. It is not up to them to give your base those funds.

  • We need to bring Christ back into our lives

    Christmas is a time of joy. But we must not forget that earth was given the most wonderful gift of all. It’s the time we celebrate our savior’s birth.

    What would this world have been without that wonderful baby who grew up to give his life for us?

  • Understand true meaning of Christmas

    I believe the lyrics from John Lennon, “So this is Christmas,” is an appropriate way to start this letter. It is the Christmas season all over the world. As I acknowledge this, I cannot help but wonder, which country and/or who are the people that keep and honor Christmas in the most fitting way? Is it the United States? Is it because we have more than 7 percent unemployment due in part to the fact that so, so many of our Christmas gifts come from other countries?

  • Consider ceding IL to Mecklenburg

    By golly, another issue of The Lancaster News hits the newsstands and the opinion page is full of gripes from Indian Land.

    Seems to me I recently read that there was a mix-up by early surveyors and the state lines just ain’t where we figured.

    Maybe this is an opportunity for our bedeviled County Council to distance itself from traffic congestion, cluster development, indoor shooting ranges, motorists looking for cheap gas and getting fussed at in general.

  • Children’s Home grateful for support

    On behalf of the board of directors, staff and children at the Lancaster Children’s Home, we would like to thank all sponsors, participants and volunteers who came out and supported our Fall Flurry 2013. A special thank you to Founders for being our title sponsor again this year.

  • Put items of necessity on markdowns

    Well sir, we fell for it again! The merchants pulled the wool over our eyes and we bit hook, line and sinker.

    There are normal folks who just go nuts when the sales ads come out.

    Bargains galore, save hundreds, get your best deal, we are almost giving the stuff away.

    You gotta  stand out in the cold for a few hours, but once the doors open, it is a nightmare of merchandise marked down so low it makes you feel like you are stealing it.

  • Mascot choice worries ‘concerned grandma’

    I feel compelled to question the selection of the Tomahawks as a mascot for our new elementary school in Indian Land. 

    With so many media stories telling of children being expelled from school for bringing weapons to school, are you sure you want to select a tomahawk as a mascot?

    How about the Catawbas? Or some other recognition of the Indian Land area of Lancaster County?

    Don’t select a weapon and then have to discipline a student for bringing one to school.
