  • Column: The qualities we need most in next school superintendent

    The Lancaster County school board recently announced its three finalists for the position of superintendent.
    In the 19 years that I have been back home, I have been observant, passionate and sometimes critical of our current superintendent and members of our school board. I have been an active servant, willing not only to voice my concerns but to participate in the process of educational change.

  • Letter: The left is killing American culture

    Many folks have stated on this page that we are in a mess. Some opinionators say the Republicans are the problem, and others blame the Democrats.
    I believe the problem is that we as a nation have turned away from God and turned to the state as our god.
    The George Soros Socialist Democrats are in a rage across America. They are running amuck because they ignore the laws of the land and only accept what they want. These people see no wrong in their actions because they are the arbiters of truth, right and wrong.

  • Letter: Israelites wandered 40 years, not days

    In response to Christine Taylor’s letter from Friday, the Israelites actually wandered the desert for 40 years, not 40 days and 40 nights.
    That was the length of time that Noah, his family and the animals spent on the ark.

  • Letter: Thanking Mulvaney for help on Dexcom

    I want to share some good news with Lancaster News readers who responded to my letter to the editor last June 22. I asked for prayer on behalf of Sandra Knight Howard as she and her team of physicians sought help getting her the Dexcom glucose monitor she needed from Medicare.
    Sandra was in dire need of this device because she had been diagnosed as severely diabetic and the pump would alert her when her breathing becomes dangerously low as she sleeps.

  • Letter: Supporting Norman, similar to Mulvaney

    I attended a meet-the-candidate event for Ralph Norman at Craig Farm on Monday night. I have to say I was impressed. If you liked Mick Mulvaney, Mr. Norman is as close to him as I have seen. Therefore, he has my support.

  • Letter: Educate yourself on congressional picks

    While making calls for our upcoming 5th District congressional race, I am concerned about the way some people react, saying they don’t want to be bothered by any of this “nonsense.” (Nonsense being a very polite word that I inserted.)
    These calls are being made only to help find you a representative to replace Mick Mulvaney. How offensive is this? Many people don’t even know it is happening or when it is happening, or who the candidates are.

  • Column: Mullikin gets backing of top Mulvaney aide

    I am endorsing Tom Mullikin to replace U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney in South Carolina’s 5th District. My reasoning is simple: Tom is the best man for the job.
    That said, this is not an endorsement I take lightly, nor did I decide to lend my support without great reflection and consideration. Fact is, I have other friends in the district who are also campaigning for Mick’s former House seat.

  • Column: Republicans obstructed Obama? In many cases, they enabled him

    In his March 20 response to my earlier article, Michael Jedson contends that the Republicans said “no to anything/everything Obama tried to get through Congress.”
    What about the $800 billion stimulus approved in 2009 that disappeared into big bank bailouts and crony projects like Solyndra without creating many shovel-ready jobs or green-energy programs?
    What about Obama’s two Supreme Court appointments, which many Republicans supported? One of them boasted of having a Hispanic and feminist agenda in her mind, which should have disqualified her.
