  • Pleasant Hill Fire Department will be missed

    I would like to thank all past and present of the Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Department and their families for the wonderful service they have given to Pleasant Hill and the surrounding communities over the years.

  • Put litter in its appropriate place, not on my lawn

    I stepped outside my house a few days ago and noticed that someone decided to redecorate my yard with various cups, beer cans and a pizza box. Apparently, someone driving along on the road I live on thought it would be appropriate to toss this garbage out of their car and onto my lawn.

    There are at least five convenience stores within five minutes of my house, where someone could stop by and drop off their trash in an outside trash can, since apparently there is a pressing need that requires this trash to be discarded of immediately.

  • Woman grateful for returned purse

    I want to thank the woman who took the pocketbook out of the buggy at Walmart about 7 p.m. on July 22.

    You do not know what a blessing it was to find out that you had taken it into customer service. I was just sick when I realized I had left it. I was so thankful.

    It is good to know that there are really good people in this world. May God bless you. He blessed me through you.

    Thank you again.

  • We'll regret closing our fire department

    I searched for an article to help me understand what the people who formed Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Department hoped it would accomplish. I found an article in the Sept. 8, 1955, edition of The Lancaster News.

    “The area is one of the most thickly populated sections of the county and the organization will serve a large number of residents and property owners,” the article said.

  • Founders provides a needed boost to local economy

    Each day I ride by Founders Federal Credit Union site on Gillsbrook Road and feel an excitement at the progress of the complex under construction.

    The clock tower  with its pretty landscaping holds a store of significant memories in Lancaster County’s history.

    I want to thank Bruce Brumfield, Founders Federal Credit Union CEO and the Founders board of directors for the confidence they have shown in Lancaster by placing the corporate complex here. Lancaster has sorely needed a boost in its economy and Founders corporate headquarters will do just that.

  • Natalie’s family grateful for support

    In this world in which we live, we often find ourselves thinking, it’s more like Sodom and Gomorrah than the country our forefathers founded.

    Almost everywhere you look today you see crime and violence on every hand. It’s as if no one cares for their fellow man anymore. But we have seen with our own eyes for the past two months – love, compassion, understanding, kindness, support, affection and faith like we have never seen before.

  • Pleasant Hill needs your support

    I would like to address the citizens of Pleasant Hill community concerning the proposed closing of Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Department.

    As stated in an earlier editorial, this department was one of the first departments in Lancaster County. Generations of good men have worked hard to protect the community from fires and to assist in medical emergencies.

    On Monday, July 27, Lancaster County Council will be voting on Lancaster County Fire Commission’s recommendation to close the fire department.

  • Habitat for Humanity on solid ground

    The local Habitat for Humanity is building on a good year.

    A year from now, the local Habitat for Humanity is hoping to have two new builds and one rehabilitation project completed.

    So far, the progress is as solid as the materials used to construct local homes as well as improve housing.

    The Caskey Lane project in Lancaster should be finished by the end of summer. The organization has been building two single-family homes in the east Lancaster neighborhood.
