  • Red Rose girls, best in the world

    Every day on social media, I see posts bemoaning our young people and the future. It’s easy to join in and criticize a different generation. However, the majority of the young people I know are pretty remarkable. And there are two prime examples calling the Red Rose City home of whom I am extremely proud.

    Both Paige Duke and Julie Roberts found success nationally. Both faced adversity that could have ruined their careers, but each one has emerged victorious.

  • Believers are supposed to fulfill civic duties

    As we celebrate our nation’s birthday, let us remember our responsibilities to government and its responsibilities to us.

    The Bible teaches that believers are to be law-abiding citizens; they are to “be subject unto the higher powers,” because “the powers that be are ordained of God” (Romans 13:1).  Joseph traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem at the time of Jesus’ birth to obey the Roman government’s decree that a census be taken.

  • Americans, have a happy, safe birthday

    Today we don our red, white and blue. We’ll wave our flags, fire up the grills, parade down Main streets and country roads to cheering crowds.

    We’ll shoot fireworks, rally with family and friends and picnic anywhere we can place a blanket. And why not. We’re celebrating our 238th birthday.

    The United States of America is considered a teenager compared to other countries on Earth.

  • County Council’s dispute with Tunnell personal

    I attended the special Lancaster County Council meeting about the I-77 Alliance snub. I sat in the back. I was a little late and couldn’t get my name on the list to speak.

    So, I figured I would stay for the meeting. I couldn’t believe what I heard and witnessed. This whole issue is personal, it has nothing to do with any law-breaking or violation of any ordinance. The action taken by the council to freeze Lancaster County Economic Corp. (LCEDC) budget, in my opinion, is an abuse of power.

  • Council needs to work with the school district

    At the June 9 Lancaster County Council meeting, when introducing the development agreements, Council Chairman Larry McCullough indicated that the MI Homes development agreement included a payment of $500 per house to the county for the benefit of Lancaster County School District.

    McCullough further indicated that provision had been made by the Lancaster County Planning Commission that the school district be given a 30-day opportunity to suggest a contribution level that was more representative of the cost of constructing a new school.

  • There’s a time when loyalty is not a virtue

    After the Benghazi attack President Barack Obama went on The View and said this about the attack, “We don’t know what happened, it looks like a response to a video.” Then in the debates of 2012, when challenged by Mitt Romney about the video story he said, “We knew the next day that it was a terrorist attack and I said so in the Rose Garden speech the next day.” He was supported by the moderator which showed her obvious bias, considering it was at best an interpretation of his comments and at worst an out right lie.

  • Democrats legacy is broken-record responses

    Not wishing to belabor the issue, but I wish to thank The Lancaster News for publishing the rebuttal of Michael Jedson “Democrats protect all Americans,” on June 1 as it proves my points quite well concerning Democrats – broken-record responses and low-information voters. He needs to be addressed.
