  • Open letter to Lancaster County Chamber leader

    Beve Lynch
    Dear Mr. Dean Faile,
    I don’t understand why the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce is so upset. The CNN reporter simply wrote what she was told in interviews with citizens of Lancaster County. That is what reporters do.
    If the chamber is upset with anyone, perhaps you should speak to those who gave offensive interviews or put Lancaster County in a bad light, as you see it.

  • CNN: So glad for your visit, bless your heart

    Dear CNN,
    Unlike some folks in Lancaster County, I want to say thank you for coming here recently to put us in the national spotlight and point out all our problems. It’s about time somebody shed a little light on things around here. I owe you a great debt.

  • What I like about Lancaster County

    Collaboration. I like the sense of collaboration with the governmental and nonprofit organizations, including the school district.
    Together, we address the challenges that our county has and work hard to find solutions.
    We work as a team. In many communities agencies operate in silos, not realizing what others are doing.
