  • Tidbits paint true picture of country

    My mother used to say, “No news means good news.” I have learned those words were not words of wisdom. No news means you are not aware of any bad news, which in turn means you are not living in the real world.
    As I listen to local and world news of late I have learned that most everyone’s frame of mind is affected by money or lack of it.
    Following are some of the tidbits that have caught my attention:

  • Americans have difficulty distinguishing what’s a lie

    The last true remnant of freedom in this United States is our right to vote. We send our fellow residents to faraway countries to die on the battlefield to stop the enemies of this republic, who would deny that right.
    We spend billions to support local, state and national governments that we trust will defend that right. Neighbors fall out with neighbors as the result of exercising that right. Cultural differences very often determine how we will execute that right.

     There will be no shortage of March Madness tonight and Saturday at Andrew Jackson High School.

  • Found body is missing Pa. man

    The search for a missing Pennsylvania man officially ended Wednesday after an autopsy confirmed the identity of a body found in a creek bed off Mount Carmel Road earlier this week.

    The remains of Joseph DeVivo, 87, from Stroud Township, Pa., were positively identified following an autopsy conducted early Wednesday morning, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office press release. 

    Lancaster County and Pennsylvania authorities attended the autopsy.

  • Mike Rao remembered at Blue Alert bill signing

    A Lancaster native who died in the line of duty was remembered as Gov. Nikki Haley signed a measure into law that aims to protect the state’s law enforcement officers.

    On March 6, Haley signed the Blue Alert bill on the Statehouse steps in Columbia. Her action allows for the creation of an alert system that will inform the public when an officer is injured, abducted or killed.

    It will be similar to the Amber Alert, which issues notifications when a child goes missing.
