  • Tidbits from our news desk

    No job for the faint-hearted
    There has never been a time when I didn’t encounter a pleasant greeting when calling the Lancaster County Voter Registration Office. While it’s not always pleasant in that office, director Cassie Stump’s demeanor never changed. Usually when I call, we banter before getting down to business. She has always been helpful and prompt with anything we needed.

  • Christmas parade caused chaos for residents

    Who in the world had the bright idea of lining the Christmas parade up in a residential area, to be more specific – French and Catawba streets? I’m even more appalled that our city officials allowed this.
    If a resident had an emergency, when minutes really matter, the clock would have just kept on ticking. If there had been a fire at someone’s home, it probably would have burned down. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It started at 4 p.m. and didn’t clear until after 8 p.m.

  • Jaylen’s grandmother angry about verdict

    It has been almost two months and I still can’t believe the verdict Marico Stevens received in the death of my grandbaby, Jaylen Jackson. Stevens was arrested May 6, 2010, in the shooting death of Jaylen.
    Anthony Carter, who was also charged in Jaylen’s death, was found guilty.
    Yes, I’m mad at the state and jurors. But there is a higher power than them. Jaylen wasn’t but 3 years old. We’ve not had her to celebrate her birthday and Christmas for two years. Yet, a person charged in her death is walking the streets free.

  • Writer grateful for honest person

    I just want to thank my Christmas angel who found my mother’s money in Walmart’s parking lot and turned it in.
    You have earned a gold star in heaven.

  • Angel Tree coordinators grateful for support

    We would like to send a special thanks to everyone who sponsored an angel from the Angel trees, the anonymous monetary donations and the food given to families for the holidays.
    The businesses that placed Angel trees helped sponsor 1,356 children.
    We also thank the Toys for Tots, which donated a lot of toys and stocking stuffers, as well as the schools that did the same.
    We’re grateful for those who donated coats and scarves. We thank God for these wonderful supporters.

  • Woman grateful for returned lost ring

    I want  to thank the kind, honest person who found my ring at Walmart and turned it in.
    I hope the Lord will bless you greatly.
