Opinions differ on the question of whether wearing a face mask will help to confine the spread of COVID-19. Medical science aside, my pragmatic, practical, survival judgment tells me that putting a barrier between my respiratory system and the general public is a good step in confining the s…

Last weekend, a disturbing photograph of a man openly carrying an AR-style rifle while shopping at Lancaster Central Market went viral with Lancaster friends on social media (“Mayor: Man allowed to carry gun and go maskless in market,” June 28 Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline).

This is response to the protests and demonstrations against racial injustice. While I do support freedom of speech and peaceful protests regarding Black Lives Matter, I truly believe all lives matter and not all police officers are bad or racist. 

I can hardly wait for upcoming editions of LNP | LancasterOnline that will undoubtedly carry apologetic letters from our congressperson and his party faithful in Harrisburg for their intemperate criticism of our governor. 

As the School District of Lancaster reviews naming options for Edward Hand Middle School, I ask that it consider a local man who dedicated his career to the School District of Lancaster — Leon “Buddy” Glover. 

I certainly appreciate Jean Bickmire’s June 23 op-ed on the organization Have A Heart for Persons in the Criminal Justice System (“We must confront racism in Lancaster”). Reform of the system that disproportionately arrests, convicts and sentences Black and Latino citizens is long overdue.

We are residents of the Landis Homes Retirement Community. We wrote a letter in mid-April (“Commendations for Landis Homes”) praising the leadership and team members of Landis Homes for the efforts and contributions they have been making to keep the residents healthy and well.

The May 13 letter “Problem with Trump critics” decried the criticism of President Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis and asked who could handle it better.

This letter is to help the writer of the June 23 letter “Universal basic income’s benefits,” who is advocating for universal basic income in America.

Kudos to the Original Mt. Gretna Cicada Music Festival executive board and committee for their unanimous decision to reschedule the festival until August 2021. 

Joe Biden was able to muster up three families, not all of whom are Lancaster natives, to listen to him extol the benefits of “Obamacare.” How impressive! Give me a few hours and I could have gathered a crowd of a hundred or more small business owners to tell him how devastating this act has…

Its obvious to me that we need a real president. So many have written letters about President Donald Trump’s lack of leadership. I’ll sum it up by saying he is, in my view, a sociopathic narcissist who wants to be a dictator. 

There is more political scheming in Pennsylvania, and LNP | LancasterOnline’s June 17 article, “Republicans file articles of impeachment,” delivers the particulars.

“Lest we forget.” It is a saying we hear about in cemeteries. It’s about not forgetting those who gave their life’s work and their lives for their country in wars throughout history. It is good to remember their cause and their sacrifice. Were some of their actions and causes wrong? No doubt…

Mark Kelley’s op-ed (“Who were those guys on Elizabethtown roofs?”) in the June 13 LNP | LancasterOnline is, in my view, an example of what is wrong with opinion writing in today’s news media. He personifies and teaches the far-left liberal techniques on how not to provide a fair and balance…

On the front page of the June 23 LNP | LancasterOnline, there is an article about a local attorney who now has to quarantine because a state trooper to whom she was speaking ignored a judicial order requiring face masks in court facilities and has tested positive for COVID-19 (“Maskless troo…

To provide context for the quoted portions of Rock Ford’s statement to the School District of Lancaster, submitted by Pamela Stoner, the president of the Rock Ford board of trustees, we offer this statement below in response to Alex Geli’s article in the June 24 LNP | LancasterOnline (“Distr…

Anyone who reads or watches real news likely has heard about the study released in May by Columbia University disease modelers. They reported that the 65,307 virus deaths reported by May 3 could have instead been 29,410 if the U.S. federal response had begun one week earlier than it did.
