  • Letter: Trump displays wisdom

    Like most young men growing up, I had to endure a bunch of advice from my father.  To tell the truth, I should have listened carefully and followed his direction.
    Now, I sort of settle in and “play back” some of his words.  Let me share this one with you, “Son, don’t elect a poor man (or woman) into office, cause they will steal you blind.”  That really hit home. There is a man running for president who appears to be quite well off and is spending his own money to get elected.

  • Column: Fear-mongering is in the eye of the beholder

    Michael Jedson has chosen to criticize my opinion on the issue of Syrian refugees. (TLN Nov. 25) He has called my comments “raising hysteria” and “fear mongering.”

  • Letter: A sincere thanks to White Oak

    This letter is to express my sincere appreciation to the administration and staff of White Oak Manor Nursing Home of Lancaster. Their professionalism, expertise, caring and compassion have been lifesaving and instrumental in providing appropriate medical and emotional support to me and my family when needed.
    Every department gets involved in the total care that is essential for the well-being of those entrusted to White Oak Manor as residents.

  • Letter: Conservative Trump thrived amid liberals

    A lot of folks think that Donald Trump is a celebrity and businessman who is running for president but doesn’t know much about politics and government and has no experience in it.
    Let me tell you what I know about Donald Trump and his experience as an active, conservative, grass-roots Republican.

  • Letter: Thanks for support for our Marines

    I offer a special thank you to the generous citizens of Lancaster and York counties who contributed to the Christmas gifts sent to the Marines of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, home-stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and currently deployed to Romania.

  • Column: Don’t blame God for mass killing in San Bernardino

    The Daily News of New York City, with letters that covered the front page of the Dec. 3 edition, boldly proclaimed, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” The statement was made in the wake of yet another mass killing, this one in San Bernardino, Calif., in which 14 people were killed and more than a dozen others wounded.
    This headline is sheer lunacy and outright hypocrisy.

  • U-turn on McClancy troubling

    Editor’s note: On Nov. 9, Lancaster County Council voted 4-3 to deny a rezoning request by McClancy Seasoning for a 21-acre tract in Indian Land.  More than 100 of McClancy’s neighbors had protested the rezoning, saying it would devalue their homes. On Nov. 23, the council voted to reconsider that decision, sending the proposal to the planning commission for more study.

    As a citizen of Lancaster County and Indian Land, I am troubled by the Lancaster County Council’s Nov. 23 decision to reconsider the McClancy rezoning issue.

  • Letter: Helping children deal with death

    My son died three years ago at age 25. Our family has many small children, and one of the things I did at the visitation was to place a step stool in front of the casket, so they could see my son – their uncle and cousin.
    They all crowded around and touched and kissed him while I answered their questions: Why doesn’t he move? Why he is he cold? Why can’t he speak? It helped that I had taught preschool before becoming a funeral director.
