  • Hopkins letter: Lancaster greenway makes little sense

    I hate to be the only dissenting view on this recreation bond, but I don't know what we need an environmental education center for.
    Most people are aware of pollution, their environment, and how they can be better patrons of those by being less – pardon the word – slobs.
    Do we need a center, costing who knows what, just to get out information that's already out there? Just go to the web. You'll find plenty on how you can do a better job, and how to protect our environment.

  • Ferguson letter: It's our turn! Vote yes on rec bond

    Over the nearly three decades we have lived in Lancaster County, we have had the fortunate experiences of cheering on our three boys at soccer and baseball tournaments throughout South Carolina.

    Those tournaments will always be a part of our family's memories. Wonderful, wholesome memories of kids playing a sport they loved and working as a team to accomplish a goal.

  • Cook letter: I back Studebaker for probate judge

    I would like to express my support for Dee Studebaker, who is running for Lancaster County probate judge.
    I am a local attorney, and probate work is a part of my practice. Over the last year, I have had the good fortune to appear before Studebaker, the county’s associate probate judge, on several occasions.

  • Will letter: Buskey unknown quantity in District 45 race

    First, we have missed the paper coming to the house and we’re very happy to see it again. Not getting the Carolina Gateway, I had no information on the District 45 campaign candidates.
    With so many early voters, I really wonder if voters in District 45 know the issues each candidate is running on.
    Brandon Newton seems head and tails over Corin Buskey. He took the time to answer and interview with the Gateway, which tells us a lot about the candidates.

  • Grey letter: Democratic Party favors rec bond

    This month, a presentation on the proposed Lancaster County parks and recreation bond was made at the Lancaster County Democratic Party’s monthly meeting.
    Sherri Gregory and Pamela Trimnal made a very informative – and entertaining – case for the county’s voters to cast their ballots “In Favor Of” this referendum.

  • Thomas letter: MDA fundraiser no waste of money

    In response to Linda Headrick’s letter, “Reader mad about MDA fundraiser,” let me assure you that your hard-earned money did not go to waste. MDA is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and more than 40 neuromuscular diseases.

  • Kurcz letter: Buck ‘the person for the (District 7) job’

    As a parent of three children in the Indian Land schools and a volunteer in our schools, I cannot imagine a better candidate to fill the District 7 school board seat than Ken Buck.
    I feel that our schools need someone who understands what is going on in the classrooms and with our children, and also has the experience to deal with the issues. I know that he has over 30 years of experience as a teacher and administrator, something that our school board needs.

  • Chandler letter: Candidate apologizes to debate audience

    I must give a public apology to the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce and the audience for my poor performance at the forum Tuesday (Oct. 23).
    The public attended to receive more information about the candidates. I am afraid I did not do a very good job of it. I came prepared to talk about the issues. I was thrown off focus by the questions I was asked.

  • Cureton letter: Vote ‘In Favor’ on county recreation bond

    I voted last week – a privilege granted to those of us of a certain vintage and others with challenges that prevent them from voting on Nov. 6.
    And I voted enthusiastically “In Favor” of the $19 million bond referendum that is on the ballot.

  • Robinson letter: Reader supports Buck for school board

    I recently read Ken Buck’s column in your paper and I have to say that I am impressed with his stance on so many of the issues he addressed.
    I have always felt as though teachers needed to get more involved on school boards since I think they would know best what is going on in our schools and what works or does not work.
