    This letter is about animals in kill shelters.
    Please adopt an animal. They are precious. Go to the Lancaster Animal Hospital and adopt a cat or dog. They can show their personalities just like humans.

  • Letter: Rude drivers at crosswalks

    This is about how rude people are in Lancaster
    County.
    Last week, I was walking out of Walmart, and when you come out you have the right of way in the crosswalk.
    As I came out and started crossing the road, a car of people started hollering and blowing their horn at me because I went across in front of her.
    She is not the only one who does people like that. I was done the same way the other day. A car stopped for me to cross, and the car behind him was using vulgar language because he had to stop.

    Joe Shaw served for 33 years and died in office still serving. He loved to help people solve problems, especially those concerning city services.
    He wanted everyone to be treated fairly. He wanted them to know that without them, there would be no city and no mayor’s job.

  • Editor's Column: Reviving Mayor Shaw’s hangout, the Ellen Dean

    We learned this week that an investment group plans to buy White Street’s old Ellen Dean Hotel and rehabilitate it for some new purpose.
    Hallelujah! For us and for the family of the late Mayor Joe Shaw. The Ellen Dean was his home base for many decades, and Charlotte and Joe Jr. have been trying to sell it since he died in 2015.
    And on today’s front page, we’re breaking the news that the vacant Kimbrell’s building a block away on Main Street has been sold.
