  • I know why people don’t like politicians

    One of the challenges I face as a politician is that a lot of people don’t like politicians. This honestly doesn’t bother me too much. I work with politicians every day, and I don’t like a lot of them either.

    But sometimes I do try to figure out why that is.

  • Thieves steal recent grad’s four-wheeler

    Some low-life thieves recently stole a young man’s graduation gift from his father. It was a 6800-watt. four-wheeler chained in his yard at Baker Place.

    This young man went to school for 12 years to make something of himself. He already has a promising job and a great future.

    To the thieves, what kind of future do you have except for a life of crime? If you have children, I hope they don’t follow in your footsteps.

  • Agency grateful for help with shoeboxes

    I would like to  thank all of the churches, schools, organizations and individuals that participated in the Shoebox for Senior’s Project in December 2013. This is a project sponsored by Lancaster County Council on Aging each year.
    Gifts are sent out to our home-delivered meal clients and if there are enough gifts we also give gifts to our group-dining clients. This year we were blessed with lots of gifts and also with lots of help.
    We received donations and help with getting bags ready for delivery from employees of Lennar Homes of Charlotte.

  • Time to get straight answers from Washington

    By golly I should have followed my Daddy’s advice about writing letters to a newspaper editor. “Son, when you write to a newspaper it’s sorta like leaving the chicken house gate open for the foxes to come a calling,” he said.

  • Additional ACA Facts

    This is in response to two guest columns concerning the Affordable Care Act – Nick Pasquine’s, “Lawrances’ column was a we-want-more-free rant,” and Brooks Walker’s, “True facts about ACA frightening.”

  • Stop socialism in America

    I’m writing this letter in hopes of convincing my fellow Lancaster residents of the importance of this year’s election. Normally a mid-term election is not that big of deal, but this one is. I’ll explain why. Over the last five years our country has changed. And not for the better. Our president has said and I quote, “I will fundamentally change the United States.”

  • School choice unites, empowers

    What agenda could possibly unite these political odd couples – Liberal Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Conservative Republican Sens. Ted Cruz. Newt Gingrich and Al Sharpton? Support for the rapidly expanding world of education options.

    As we just celebrated during National School Choice Week, each of these leaders is part of a bi-partisan groundswell of advocates for evidence-based school choice programs, both public and private.

  • MLK parade a success

    The inaugural “I Have a Dream” parade and ceremony in celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was truly a memorable day for Lancaster. With more than 45 entries participating in the parade, as well as an estimated 200 in attendance for the ceremony, folks braved the cold to come out and honor a great leader.
