  • Letter: Thanks to all who helped with city’s Easter event

    On behalf of the city of Lancaster, I would like to send a shout out to everyone that made Lancaster’s first Easter event a success. These individuals brought their talents and energy creating an atmosphere of family and fun in the effort to welcome spring.
    Thank you to the Lancaster High School Civinettes, who designed the Easter egg coloring sheet and worked the event. Their adviser, Stacey Kirkley, who is also a teacher at Lancaster High, brought in 15 girls to organize the Easter egg hunt, and put up coloring sheets in the downtown merchant’s windows.

  • Column: New GOP leadership lights fires

    It has been almost two months since our county reorganization, where we elect officers for our party. I am excited to introduce our very energetic team: I am the chairwoman; Donnie Jones, executive committeeman; Kevin Moughan, vice chair; Roger Summey, second vice chair; Brian Carnes, secretary and John Plyler, treasurer.

    Each May, a week is set aside to say thanks to teachers in our community.

    Fittingly enough, Carnes, who died earlier this month, is well-remembered for the impact he had on education in the eastern Lancaster County community.
