Letters

  • Richburg did well in choosing mayor

    To the Editor:
    I would like to congratulate the mayor elect of Richburg for a fair, honest and very clean campaign.
    There is no doubt in my mind that the voters of Richburg chose the right man for the job.
    I know the mayor elect is very caring, honest and concerned and shows compassion in his decision making for Richburg.
    I worked for him several years as a bus driver at Lewisville. I was very impressed with his policies, one being, "Always tell me the truth and I will stand by you through thick and thin."

  • And it just keeps on going…

    To the Editor:
    Poor old Chester County will always have financial and internal power problems as long as it is governed by the likes of some of the members of our County Council and led by King Carlisle.
    It appears that the plan to move the E-911 office had been discussed in depth prior to its release to the public if, and I quote from the news report, "He said money for the move is already in the budget" is true. This idea just did not pop up recently. How can this all of a sudden become an issue when the budget was passed months ago?

  • On Richburg mayoral election

    To the Editor:
    May I first extend my sincere appreciation to those who voted for me in the elective process for mayor of Richburg. Unfortunately, we knew that it was a foregone conclusion that there was little probability of winning, but there is always the possibility that reason would somehow triumph over emotion.

  • HILLarity was different but fun

    To the Editor:
    Yes, HILLarity took place in the Back Lot this year, and yes, the change was controversial, and yes, some thought it was good and others did not.  
    This backdrop is indisputable and this letter will try not to focus on the logistics of the 2013 HILLarity Festival Makes Music. Instead, we would like to emphasize the people part of HILLarity. After all, isn't that really what a festival is all about?

  • Obamacare disaster

    To the Editor,

  • King and the king of kings

    To the Editor:
    Why would a Chester City Councilman be harassing a street preacher? He says people are complaining. What people? What's their complaint? If this man is violating any law, shouldn't that be a matter for law enforcement? Here's part of a story that was recently front page news in this newspaper.

  • Fairfax family to take part in Food Allergy Walk

    To the Editor:
    My name is Nick Fairfax. I'm eight years old, in the second grade at Chester Park School of the Arts, a big fan of the Gamecocks and have a baby brother who I love very much.
    I'm raising money to find a cure for food allergies. This would create a world safe for everybody. It's scary going to places and not knowing for sure if something you might eat or drink will make you sick, or even stop breathing.  

  • Praises for hospital, doctors and staff

    To the Editor:

    I'm writing to let the people of Chester know about our hospital, Chester Regional Medical Center.

    On Sept. 7, I had severe respiratory failure. My husband called 911. I don't remember anything until I woke up in the emergency room. Dr. Crow worked with me until I was sent to ICU. I want to thank you, Dr. Crow, for everything you did for me.

  • Gayle needs improvements

  • When ya'll make me king

    When ya’ll make me King, one of the first issues I’m going to address is professional sports. I think the exorbitant salaries athletes enjoy has exceeded common sense, particularly when you consider the people attending the events probably have to save up their meager discretionary incomes for months in order to attend one of the events.
