  • Why I’m not voting for Mulvaney

    Mr. Mick Mulvaney has been in political office for six years. He’s a what-can-you-do-for-me politician, not a what-can-I do-for-my-constituents politician.
    Let us look at his voting record:
    He voted against raising the national debt ceiling with fellow Tea Party representatives in 2011; thinking that America defaulting on its debt would solve our problems, but in actuality would shut down the government. That vote also resulted in the downgrade of the United States credit rating.

  • Case ‘loyal public servant’

  • There’s plenty of pride for Pettit

    A gold medal and three silvers are nothing to sneeze at as the old saying goes.
    Rather, it’s something to be proud of over a two-year athletic career in the state meet.
    Those are the honors Lancaster High School senior swimmer Jory Pettit posted in the last two Class AAAA state swim meets.
    Pettit, as a junior, won the gold in the 50-yard freestyle and took the silver in the 100-yard freestyle.

  • Faile should continue to lead office

    Nov. 6 is right around the corner and I want to encourage everyone to get out and exercise their right to vote as there are some very important decisions that must be made.
    For Lancaster County residents, the office of sheriff in Lancaster County is on the ballot. I have never really become involved in a sheriff’s campaign, but find it necessary now to preserve the professionalism that has become the sheriff’s office over the last four years.

  • Vote no to Sunday alcohol sales

    I am writing this letter to all the people who make up this little place on earth that we all love, Lancaster County.
    Suppose for a moment that your community selected a bulldog as a mascot. All the hard-working people paid taxes for the privilege of having the dog in the community. Some of the citizens argued that the dog should run loose in the-community because a number of them enjoyed the dog so much.

  • Nebraska family looking for information on relatives

    We are looking for some information on a local war hero and would appreciate any help from readers of The Lancaster News. We think someone who has knowledge of Lancaster and local family history would be able to help us.
    My family is from a cattle ranch in Western Nebraska called the “Red Rose Ranch” that was founded in 1887. Since there is a lot of prairie grass but no roses in Western Nebraska we believe there is a connection between our family and Lancaster “The Red Rose City.”

  • Funderburk works hard for her community

    The people of Kershaw County should be proud of their S.C. House District 52 Representative Laurie Slade Funderburk.
    She is a representative who works very hard for people in her district, but she also works with the people in other districts, not from her district.
    I called her about a problem a family in Lancaster County was having. When the father of this family needed to get some papers signed from an inmate, so he could get funeral arrangements for services the next day, she stepped in to help. She was a very big help to that family.

  • This is National Estate Planning Awareness Week

    In 2008, the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC) worked with Congress to pass a resolution proclaiming the third week in October as National Estate Planning Awareness Week.
    The resolution noted that “Many Americans are unaware that lack of estate planning and financial illiteracy may cause their assets to be disposed of to unintended parties by default through the complex process of probate.”
