  • An American fairy tale

    Our son has maxed out his credit card that we have given to him. He wants us to increase his debt limit again.  Because we have done it many times in the past, he says we should keep doing so. We have asked him to curb his spending and he is getting mad because we have asked him this too many times now. We are getting mad because he keeps running the card up to the new limit.

  • Letter: Young need to put down guns; parents need to speak up

    To our young men: Put down your guns and pick up a trade to become the young man God created you to be.
    Your family is really those who suffer the most – your parents and children left behind, weeping for a wrong decision that you made. Making bad decisions instead of the right decisions, causing your parent to be in debt. Allowing your parent to explain to the child who is left behind, asking “Where is my father, where is my mother?”

  • Letter: Thanks to farmers market

    I would like to express my vote of thanks to the Lancaster County Farmers Market for the convenience of the location, prices, fresh vegetables and produce with their friendly service.

  • President needs to listen to people, follow Constitution

    I have been listening to our politician president trying again to scare us about consequences of not raising the debt ceiling and saying that we do not need a balanced budget.
    If we do raise the debt ceiling and do not cut a lot out of the budget, our credit rating will still be lowered, just like our personal credit would be lowered if we spend too much. What would happen to American families if we did not balance our budgets?

  • Some legal advice, please

     The Associated Press reported on July 15, that police in Georgia shut down a lemonade stand operated by three girls who were attempting to raise admission money to attend a water park amusement center.  Police said the girls had no business permit or other required documents.
     In the July 17 edition of The Lancaster News, my “Remember when”  column mentioned that I set up a lemonade stand in front of my Chesterfield Avenue home during the 1940’s Army maneuvers.

  • Dr. Adams left a true legacy

    Dr. Ira Adams was certainly unforgettable. I went to his dental office when I was in my teens and I still remember it well. Not being fond of any dental office, it always terrified me when he came to the waiting room door and spoke the famous words, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?”
    I guess he wanted to make sure everyone understood what he said, because he always repeated, “Does anybody have one to be pulled?” I didn’t mind at all waiting on those who needed a tooth pulled, because I was not anxious for my turn to come anyway.

  • Woman kept husband and all but two teeth

    I came home from my honeymoon early because of a nasty toothache and Dr. Ira Adams pulled a bottom wisdom tooth for me. He pulled the other bottom wisdom tooth out the following week.
    Dr. Adams would say, “I’m not sure I ate all my Wheaties this morning to get the job done.” But he always did a beautiful job of pulling them.
    That was 36 years ago and I still have all of my other teeth and kept my husband, too.
    Dr. Adams was a good dentist.

  • Dr. Adams good at calming fear of dentists

    When I was growing up, my family went to Dr. Ira Adams for dental work. I thought he was the best dentist. One time my mother asked my wife and me to go with her to Dr. Adams’ office with her. She needed about four teeth pulled and she was scared.
    When Dr. Adams called her back to the room, my mother asked him if it would hurt very much.
    “No ma’am, you won’t feel a thing,” he said.
    The last time I saw him was in a fast-food store. He loved to joke and cut up.

  • Dr. Adams gave so much of his time and talent

    Dr. Ira Adams was a good, caring and giving person. I know a lot of people who had fillings, cleanings and partials they didn’t pay a cent for. He gave of his time and talent, time and time again. He was a good friend to so many people.
    Dr. Adams loved flowers and he shared them as well. It wasn’t unusual for people to come out on a Sunday morning to find a big bunch of Gladiolas on the hoods of their cars.
    I often went by to see if Dr. Adams was in his yard at his office. He always had a new flower to show me. He was always working in his flowers.

  • Florida jury failed justice for Caylee

    In all professions, there are some who are excellent, most who are average, and some who are not-so-good. As we have viewed the justice for Caylee in the Florida court, we have witnessed some of the worst on the Casey Anthony defense team.
    The purpose of this criminal trial was to provide justice for Caylee. Under our Constitution and general statutes, it is important for all to understand that all accused of crime are innocent until proven guilty. All trial witnesses and evidence must be open and honest.
