  • Be safe on this Easter holiday

    Easter arrives today. For Christians, it's regarded as the holiest day of the year. The holiday is held to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who arose from the dead following His death on the cross as revealed by the scriptures.

    Easter, or Resurrection Day, as many Christians refer to the holiday, is a time to celebrate.

    Barry has spent his entire law enforcement career as a deputy sheriff. He has worked in every capacity of the Sheriff's Office and was instrumental in organizing the Metro Drug Task Force.

  • Does racism exist in Lancaster County?

    I am a 62-year-old woman and a native of New Jersey. I worked 12 years as a ward/health coordinator at Bergen Pines Hospital in New Jersey. And I have worked in management positions for more than 30 years.

    I have worked with the public for many years and never encountered anything like I did after moving to Lancaster.
