  • Letter: Why are stars only now talking about Harvey Weinstein?

    The elite left and Hollywood have finally shown their true faces together, even though the cover-up has been ongoing for over a decade.
    Harvey Weinstein, a big shot in tinsel town, has been exposed (excuse the pun) as a sexual predator. He stands accused of  harassing, groping and even raping women for years, and the left and their perverted twin Hollywood helped him along the way.

  • Letter: Habitat seeking materials for Promise Neighborhood project

    Our local Habitat for Humanity chapter needs your help for a project that our Critical Home Repair Team has taken on in the Promise Neighborhood area.
    David Cox, construction coordinator for the Promise Neighborhood effort, contacted us about Peggy Martin’s home on Cunningham Street, which was badly in need of a new roof. Our repair team did some eave and soffit repairs, and A+ Masonry, one of our partners, removed an unused chimney. And H&S Roofing of Charlotte donated materials and labor for the new roof.

  • Letter: No work, no pay for Ms. Blackmon

    I am writing because of Ms. Linda Blackmon requesting $6,750 in back pay.
    The only way you can get back pay is that you worked. Well, excuse me, but she didn’t work during that time. So no work, no pay.
    There is a problem somewhere when our so-called elected officials are able to vote to give themselves this back pay.

  • Letter: Metal-plate hazard on Harrisburg Rd.

    I currently work for the PCI Group on Harrisburg Road. I tell you this to inform you that I travel this road at regular intervals.
    For the last month, a steel plate has been sitting on Harrisburg. Not beside the road. Oh no. This plate stretches across Harrisburg from white line to white line. This is used to cover up a ditch that has been dug.

  • Letter: Concern about plans for library

    Thanks to Richard Band’s letter to the editor, we now know some of the hazards that patrons of our library will face if it is moved.
    Can you imagine a mother with small children walking from the parking area up to the library? What about teenagers and adults walking alone or senior citizens with limited walking ability?
    Have any of the council or library board members walked the distance?
    Probably not, or this decision would not be under consideration. Why can’t the library be improved where it is?

  • Letter: Treasurer offers e-check option

    Part of keeping the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office taxpayer-friendly is coming up with new ways to make customer service faster, friendlier and more cost-effective.

  • Letter: A nation of geniuses can’t figure stuff out

    I have come to the conclusion that there are too many “geniuses” in our society today. The word is used practically for everyone.
    Hollywood is filled with them. Just ask anyone who acts about their co-stars or directors and you get, “He’s a genius.” I’ve heard it for sports stars, politicians, artists, Wall Street workers, singers, etc. You name the category, and the title has been used.

  • Letter: Here’s how NFL players could make a real difference

    President Trump should not have involved himself in the NFL players’ protest. In doing so, he became part of the problem instead of part of the solution.
    I personally disagree with the means of player protest, but I support their right to peacefully protest. None of our citizens should be required to honor the flag. We are not North Korea.

  • Letter: No need for protection against disagreement

    “I don’t agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

    Professor Eric P. Robinson’s thoughtful and well-written guest column last Friday brought those historic words to mind. Unfortunately, they appear to have been forgotten or disregarded in the current social-political debate.

    Some people, notably on our college campuses, seem to believe it is not only their right but their duty to shout down and/or intimidate those whose views they find offensive. 

  • Letter: County needs reliable public transportation

    Please help me understand why Lancaster has no reliable public transportation for the residents to get around.

    Yes, we have the Lancaster Area Ride Service, operated by the Council on Aging, but they only come to certain parts of the county on certain days.

    Do you not realize that you have single mothers that need to get their children to appointments, senior citizens that may have appointments and people in general who want jobs or have jobs they can’t get to because they have no reliable transportation or family?
