  • Our View: Stop by VA office to read 'The notebook'

  • Column: Courthouse grand opening should have been open to all

    As I was driving down Main Street on Thursday (May 12) afternoon, I was marveling at the beautiful new courthouse we, the people of Lancaster County, are having built. It is truly a sight, compared to our previous courthouse, but as I looked at the building and its surroundings, something suddenly drew my attention.

  • Letter: God help us

    I agree with everything that brother Steve Stewart said in the May 6 issue of The Lancaster News (Take care in celebrating death of bin Laden).
    But I want to add this:
    Christian people don’t rejoice when lost people die (whom the Lord died for) and go to hell.
    Religious people do.
    Christian people don’t rejoice when more than a million babies are murdered each year.
    Religious people do.
    Christian people didn’t stand around the cross and laugh and mock Jesus when he was crucified.
    Religious people did.

  • Letter: Osama now paying the price

    Osama Bin Laden, you were judge and jury for all the lives you took. Now you have to stand before the ultimate judge. And you have been sentenced.
    This is my belief – you and Hitler were the worst mass murderers in history. The Bible tells us not to judge, but it is my belief that you are with Hitler, for all those innocent lives you two took. You are now paying the price.
    The United States stop-ped Hitler. We stopped you. And anyone who hurts or kills, we will stop. It may take 10 years, as it did with bin Laden, but the United States will prevail.
