• Letter: Thanks, Joel Hinson, for coming to the rescue

    Joel Hinson with Lancaster County Animal Control, which is now under the jurisdiction of our sheriff’s department, is a fine example of tax dollars at work.
    His prompt response to a situation that could have been sad proved otherwise. He knows and enjoys what he’s doing. That’s obvious in his smile and the pride he takes in his work. Very knowledgeable!

  • Letter: Hope on horizon for Alzheimer’s patients

    There may be thousands of men and women  living in Lancaster County who are near or over retirement age who are beginning to suffer memory loss.
    The seniors who live in Sun City Carolina Lakes are likely to have a high percentage of men and women with Alzheimer’s disease, simply because so many of us are older. African-American men and women of every senior age are especially vulnerable to the development of Alzheimer’s dementia.  

  • Letter: Both parties want a back-room deal

    We have learned from this year’s election cycle that we may have two parties but their goals are the same. They want to stay in power even if it means surrendering victory to the other side.
    Forget about the candidates and look at the process happening in both parties.

  • Letter: Thanks for your help keeping warming center open this winter

    On Jan. 4 the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless opened the doors of the Lancaster Warming Center. This was the first time that this service was made available in Lancaster County, and we were grateful to have an outpouring of support from the community to help us provide a hot meal and a warm place to sleep at night for homeless individuals here.
    We could not have done it without the countless donations and the many hours put into it by our amazing volunteers.

  • Letter: Our hearts break for victims of Brussells terrorists

    It is heartbreaking to see so many innocent lives taken, and we stand with the people of Belgium today. Terror groups and Islamic terrorists value death above life, and we have seen the manifestation of their values over the past six months in San Bernardino, Paris and now Brussels.
    We must redouble our efforts to build partnerships around the world to tackle the scourge of terrorism, and to keep innocent people everywhere safe.

  • Letter: Faile has been a great sheriff

    Barry Faile, in my time, has been one of the best sheriffs Lancaster County has had.
    He is just like his father, Sheriff Williford Faile. He has done a lot in cleaning up Lancaster County.
    He is a good Christian man and treats people with dignity and respect. I pray for him and his force.
    I think the world of Barry, and hope he remains sheriff of Lancaster County. God bless Barry, his family, his force and the citizens of Lancaster County.

  • Letter: We don’t need hate crime laws

    Hate crimes. Who would have thought that our society would stoop to this unimaginable Orwellian rubbish. I shudder to think that this farce could even be thought of as sensible, never mind being inputted into our justice system.

  • Letter: Hillary a Christian? You must be joking

    So I’m supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is very spiritual and a Christian, according to professor Jack Bass’ column in your Feb. 28 paper.
    Are you kidding me? She lied straight to the faces of the families of the four brave men we lost in Benghazi. At the returning of their bodies to our country, she told them the attack was the result of a video. On the same day of the attack, she emailed her daughter stating it wasn’t. Now she’s running for POTUS and she’s saying the families are lying. That’s a Christian?

  • Letter: Flowers, angels go missing from graves

    I think it’s really sorry when you put flowers or other things on a loved one’s grave and somebody steals them.
    I put angels on my daughter’s and husband’s graves last summer. I walk at Memorial Park most days, and I go by their graves. I missed one day, and the next day the angels were gone. So I called the office, and they said they didn’t know what happened to them. The angels were wired to the vase, so why take them?  

  • Letters: In support of the school bond referendum

    Bobby E. Bailey
    Lancaster County Education Hall of Fame

    I’ve always been proud of how Lancaster County residents support their schools.
    It’s one of the reasons I love this county and its people. We believe in the power of a good education to help children rise to their potential, and we know that quality school facilities are an important part of providing a good education.
