    In Lancaster County, the only races contested in the Tuesday, June 12, Republican Party primary are the District 3 and District 7 County Council seats.
    Voters who live in those two County Council districts will be the only ones casting ballots.
    Under state law, Democrats and voters of other political persuasions may still vote the Republican County Council ballot since there are no Democratic ballots.

    INDIAN LAND – Most of us have fond memories of at least one family vacation, a cherished memory that stays with us for a lifetime. 

    The Menkhaus family – Pete, Stephanie, Patrick, 15, Julia, 12, and Madeline, 8 – have one too, a side trip taken during their family vacation to London this spring.

    The family’s three-day trip to Normandy, France, site of the historic World War II D-Day invasion 68 years ago today, overshadowed their main trip, they said, and affected them more profoundly than any of them expected.
