  • HOPE staff truly care about helping

    My name is Gloria D. Wylie and I am the property manager for Miller Grove Apartments. I have been in the apartment management business for more than 20 years.
    Never have I encountered a program that shows so much love and concern to the community than HOPE of Lancaster Inc. The title of this organization fits it well, because thanks to those involved with HOPE, there are children all over the county that will not go to bed hungry tonight because HOPE of Lancaster has given them just that – hope.

  • Bundy has sense of pride for Lancaster

    I am writing in support of Bob Bundy for the Lancaster County Council District 3 seat. I have known Bob and his family for a long time. He brings a broad range of experience from working in textiles, teaching and the marine transport business. His knowledge of the issues and sound sense of judgment make him uniquely qualified to make the tough decisions facing our county. I trust he will watch over the taxpayers’ dollars and see to it we all get the most for our money.

  • Express your concerns to legislators

    Members of the
    U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington for 41 of the first 127 days of this year. They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks. How long would you keep your job if you worked like that? Even when they show up, they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country. It would take a 50 percent tax increase to balance the so-called budget, yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by $1.2 billion per year.

  • Government wish lists grows as income remains flat

    A recent front page of The Lancaster News says it all. There was a story about the unemployment at a very high 11.1 percent and a story about Lancaster County Council looking for more cash on the same page. This is only our second year in Lancaster. Is every year going to be nothing but more demands for cash for government wish lists while our income remains flat?
    Poor attendance at budget meetings is no doubt the result of public input being ignored previously.

  • Thank those who served; honor those who sacrificed

    Each year we celebrate a holiday known as Memorial Day. It is the day, when we, as Americans, pay tribute to the many men and women who paid the ultimate price for the freedom we so often take for granted.
    In Washington, D.C., there are walls of marble and granite that hold hundreds of chiseled names as a reminder of the men and women who paid freedom’s price with their lives. They did it willingly, without forethought or hesitation, so our children and their children’s children may continue to live in a free society as a free people.

  • Don’t throw stones if you live in glass houses

    In a desperate attempt to find something disparaging about Mitt Romney’s personal life, the Democrats had to go all the way back to his high school days – almost 50 years ago. What they came up with was a highly questionable allegation about a hazing incident in which Romney was supposed to have cut the bleached, blonde hair of a gay high school classmate.

  • Left all about corruption

  • State should add expunged candidates back to ballot

    To err is human: Most of us do make honest mistakes without intention of breaking the law.  Such is in the case of the Lancaster District 44 candidates Bob Cook and Joseph Coy. Since the state recognizes there was no criminal intent and the error occurred in the timing of the filing of their financial statements, there was no word or hint of cover-up or falsification.

  • Need to ban stupid laws, enforce those in place now
