  • 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.

    At my place of employment a young, white man called me a racial slur. I felt degraded and overwhelmed when he made the remark.

    The residents of Lancaster, Chester and York counties are all facing some fast changes in the economy and in lifestyles.

    As these changes happen, more and more people may face challenges that lead to a downturn in their everyday life and may have feelings of hopelessness with no one to turn to.

    It’s been much louder in the second grade classrooms at Buford Elementary School this week. Teachers Jackie Anthony, Tara Broome, Terry Cauthen, Julie Craig, Buffy Eason, Deborah Elliott and Lee Anne Robinson are having trouble keeping these rowdy, rambunctious noisemakers in line, too.No, it’s not students anxious for Easter break who are causing the ruckus.

  • John Q. Public has right to know

    He wasn't getting into a "challenging" contest with an elephant. The context is not verbatim. I can't print what he really said here, but you get the idea.

    He - head of a state department, whose salary is paid by taxpayers - was the challenger and I was the elephant. I have a prominent nose and I had gained some weight. But I decided not to take the comment personally.
