  • Sports Talk: Glad we had Henry...

    In just over a month, the City of Lancaster will have new leadership.

    That’s ahead, but today – Father’s Day, that annual mid-June Sunday, we tip our hat to dad, I’m thinking about a man, who was, among many, a fine father for our town, “The Red Rose City.”

    Back earlier this spring, we lost a couple of “good men,” who were solid leaders for Lancaster, within the same week – John Howard and Henry Johnson.

    I knew both of them well, but I go back a l-o-n-g way with Henry.
