  • Standing tall with determination

    Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues was told his entire life that he was too short to play basketball.

    Some people believed he was placed on teams out of pity or to draw large crowds for amusement. Not many people thought he could make a career out of the sport.

    Bogues, standing at 5 feet, 3 inches, proved a lot of people wrong through the years and now shares his story of will and determination with others.

  • Writer: Schmidt doesn't base opinion on facts

    In reading Rudy Schmidt’s May 9 letter, “Conservatives are now moving again,” my first thought was that we’ve been down this road before.

    The last time he “enlightened” us with his revisionest history I attempted to point out the historical facts. Apparently he felt that they would get in the way of his opinion. Sir, you are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts.

    Time is better spent in the library than with the entertainers on Fox News or talk radio.

  • We all must learn to work together

    First of all, I’d like to thank God for his many blessings that he has bestowed upon me. I am also thankful to him for the opportunity to meet with some of the leaders, pastors, evangelists and ministers of the Lancaster County community.

    The recent violence and crime in the community has me concerned, not only as a citizen, but as a father who cares for all children, not just my own.

  • Writer intends to pass on act of kindness

    I would like to thank the lady in front of me at Chick-Fil-A about 8 on Thursday morning. You paid for my breakfast, but you did much more than that. You reminded me that there are caring, generous people in Lancaster. What you did was a blessing and it carried through my whole day – because of your generosity. I am going to return the gift by doing the same gesture for someone else.
