  • Tidbits from our news desk

    No job for the faint-hearted
    There has never been a time when I didn’t encounter a pleasant greeting when calling the Lancaster County Voter Registration Office. While it’s not always pleasant in that office, director Cassie Stump’s demeanor never changed. Usually when I call, we banter before getting down to business. She has always been helpful and prompt with anything we needed.

  • Daddy was a man of his word

    I reckon time does heal old Sears & Roebuck wounds. Me and my secondhand bicycle became almost inseparable. 

    It sure made running to the store for Mama a whole lot faster. 

    Through the years that old bike had several paint jobs. Shucks, right after the war, it sported shiny chrome fenders and chain guard.

    Maybe I was getting carried away by those Saturday morning cowboy movies.

    Mama was no longer makin’ Bill Whitesell go to the picture show with me. 

    I was getting older.

     When Jimmy Brown heard about the abduction and murder of Hope Melton last month, he was immediately taken back to April 1980.
    More than 30 years ago, Brown, then a Lancaster County sheriff’s deputy, was an integral part of the investigation into the kidnapping, rape and killing of 18-year-old Rebecca “Becky” Eudy.
