Today's Opinions

  • Writer agrees with CNN

    After reading what Moni Basu had to say about Lancaster, I don’t believe this person is entirely wrong. I moved to Lancaster about four years ago to be with my grandchildren and I have never seen such a dead town. The saying “they roll their streets up at 7” must have come from here.

  • Writer praises sheriff’s office

    I was the witness to the incident where the sheriff’s deputy was arrested for burglary.
    I want to say since my original phone call to file complaint, I was treated with respect and professionalism from the first officer to arrive to the major.
    If this was in my old hometown, it would have been swept under the rug.
    My wife and I are very impressed with Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.

  • Work too slow on U.S. 521 bridge

    The person who made the decision to tear up the U.S. 521 bridge and leave it that way for two months or more should leave their office, quit or be fired.
    If you had to drive that road every day, you would not be happy about it either.
    I would like to know why? There are a lot of people who travel this route. If you don’t drive through there then you have no idea how much trouble it is.
    I know roads and bridges have to be repaved from time to time, but this ridiculous.

  • No progress being made on skate park

    I’m Dustin Owens and I have been trying to get a skate park open here in Lancaster. It has been almost an entire year since I started going to council meetings. Guess what? Nothing has been done because the city of Lancaster refuses to put in any effort. They tell me the same excuse over and over again.

  • Good move to name award for Muennich

    The death of Buford junior varsity football player Seth Muennich rocked the eastern Lancaster County community.
    A promising life was cut short by a car accident near the school last fall.
    But Muennich’s name and the life he lived won’t soon be forgotten.
    Buford High School officials want to make sure Muennich’s memory is always prevalent in the minds of Yellow Jackets’ fans.

  • Open letter to Lancaster County Chamber leader

    Beve Lynch
    Dear Mr. Dean Faile,
    I don’t understand why the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce is so upset. The CNN reporter simply wrote what she was told in interviews with citizens of Lancaster County. That is what reporters do.
    If the chamber is upset with anyone, perhaps you should speak to those who gave offensive interviews or put Lancaster County in a bad light, as you see it.

  • CNN: So glad for your visit, bless your heart

    Dear CNN,
    Unlike some folks in Lancaster County, I want to say thank you for coming here recently to put us in the national spotlight and point out all our problems. It’s about time somebody shed a little light on things around here. I owe you a great debt.

  • What I like about Lancaster County

    Collaboration. I like the sense of collaboration with the governmental and nonprofit organizations, including the school district.
    Together, we address the challenges that our county has and work hard to find solutions.
    We work as a team. In many communities agencies operate in silos, not realizing what others are doing.
