Scrooge came to town early this year. He made it here even before Thanksgiving. He appeared at the Nov. 17 County Council meeting.
He appeared in the face of outgoing County Councilman Wayne Kersey, who made some of the most nasty comments we’ve ever heard about Lancaster County from an elected official.
During discussion on a proposal to repeal the state’s blue laws in the county until Jan. 4, a measure that would have allowed retailers to open early during the Christmas-selling season, Kersey seemed particularly grumpy.
