  • Column: New GOP leadership lights fires

    I often wonder what happened to my once-quiet, retired life on Red Rose Ranch, but I do not regret my decision to run for chairwoman of the Lancaster County Republican Party.
    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.

  • Our View: Carnes was dedicated to education

    Each May, a week is set aside to say thanks to teachers in our community.
    Buford education legend Corbett Carnes, who has been retired some 38 years, still draws plenty of praise even though his days in the classroom have long been completed.
    Fittingly enough, Carnes, who died earlier this month, is well-remembered for the impact he had on education in the eastern Lancaster County community.

  • Our View: Trio deserves hall of fame recognition

    The Lancaster County School District’s recent Celebration of Excellence honored 258 students and 24 retirees and featured the induction of three new members into the LCSD’s Education Hall of Fame.
    The trio included Atlee Brown, W.C. Lewis and Charlene McGriff. All three were dedicated servants to the district for a number of years.

  • Column: Graduation a time for optimism

    It seems you can’t open a newspaper or turn on the television these days without being clobbered with “bad news” – news about tragic natural disasters, sky-rocketing gas prices, national unemployment rates that continue to climb and political strife in Washington.
