  • Presidential election didn’t follow Redskins rule

    President Barrack Obama will certainly have his place in U.S. history.
    His successful bid to the White House in 2008 gave our country its first African-American president.
    Under President Obama’s administration in May of 2011, U.S. public enemy No. 1 terrorist Osama bin Laden was taken down.
    Bin Laden was the founder of al-Qaeda, the jihadist organization that claimed responsibility for the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.

  • Support our local Scouts Food drive

  • Open letter to every S.C. House member

    You have a golden opportunity to prove to your constituents that you do want to represent them, and that you do care about what they think.
    The recent vote on the Constitutional amendment gives you that opportunity.   

  • Help fellow Americans who are having a difficult time

    Christ Life Evangelical Ministries will be conducting its fifth outreach operation to Owsley County, Ky., on Nov. 14-18.
    Several different projects will be going on while they are in Kentucky:
    u Jehovah-Jireh (the Lord will provide) will distribute food to those in need and work with Owsley County Outreach Corp., assisting it with its backpack program.
    The goal of the backpack program is to make sure that every child has food while school in not in session.

  • Hospice makes wishes a top priority

    No one likes to think about death and dying, but it’s something everyone has to face eventually. There’s an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. It’s Hospice Care of South Carolina.
    November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care that Hospice Care of South Carolina provides locally.

  • Let’s thank our veterans on Saturday

    While the official Veterans Day is not until Sunday, Lancaster County residents have a chance to honor their local veterans on Saturday. That chance will be at the annual Veterans Day Parade slated to begin at noon on Main Street.
    With the election finally behind us, we have the opportunity to focus on thanking and honoring those who risk their lives to protect our freedom both here and on the foreign fields. Many of them have made the extreme sacrifice for our freedom.

  • Boy Scouts help those here struggling to survive

    I am writing in response to Jay Evan’s letter “Boy Scouts should help Sandy Victims,” in the Nov. 7 edition of The Lancaster News. While I understand the concern for those affected by the recent events in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and would applaud any local efforts to help, this should not  be done at the expense of or in lieu of helping our local folks who are in need.

  • Northeast needs help; so does our community

    I am writing in response to Jay Evan’s letter “Boy Scouts should help Sandy Victims,” in the Nov. 7 edition of The Lancaster News. In his letter, Mr. Evan was upset that the food collected by the local Boy Scouts would be used locally and not distributed in the Northeast to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
