    I looked at the front page of the June 24 edition of The Lancaster News and saw the headline, “Firing stuns Karres.” I was stunned, too. I soon found out I was not the only one stunned.
    Many other Lancasterians were just as stunned. Karres didn’t know himself until he was called to the office of County Administrator Steve Willis, where Karres was informed he was fired, but no reason was given as to why he was fired.

    Crawford, a Van Wyck native and former Indian Land star athlete, came in seventh in an eight-man race in the 200-meter finals for a spot on the U.S. track and field team at the 2012 Summer Games in London.
