  • Fireplace Systems gave true customer service

    As Lancaster froze early Saturday morning, a wave of panic came over me. Trees began snapping and I shivered at the thought of being without heat with the possible loss of power. Power was already off across town.

    My two grandchildren, who are with me, are my dearest concern. Terrified to drive, I began calling to see who might have a kerosene heater. The big chain stores just let me stay on hold, and hold and hold.

  • Have a safe visit to Forty Acre Rock

    The name aptly applies – Forty Acre Rock Heritage Preserve. The national natural landmark, located 15 miles southeast of Lancaster, is truly a heritage.

    The 2,500-acre natural area features a vast display of rare plants, numerous animals, scenic walking trails and waterfalls. Its greatest feature is the massive outcropping of granite, hence its name. While not 40 acres, it is 14 acres of flat granite rock.

  • Actions louder than words

    Unless the Israelis stop them first, most experts agree that Iran’s nuclear development program will soon be successful and it will become the world’s next nuclear power.

    Unfortunately, President Barack Obama has done little to stop Iran’s effort. No tough sanctions, no embargoes, no blockades – only hollow talk and pointless diplomatic negotiations that have been ignored.

    For 158 years, this newspaper has been bringing you the important news of the community. When this paper was founded, downtown Lancaster had nine dry good stores, two shoe shops, three grocery stores, one harness maker, two tailor shops and several blacksmiths.
