Letters to the Editor

The idea that restaurant workers can make more money on unemployment than they can working full-time shifts does not necessarily mean that unemployment benefits are too high (“Eatery owners struggle to find staff,” April 4 Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline).

Two pieces — including Dr. John Shand’s “This past year has taken a toll on our mental health” and Nikkee Asashon’s “An ICU nurse reflects on a year in COVID-19 trenches” — in the March 21 Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline Perspective section discussed the psychological and emotional effects of t…

The April 11 front-page article in Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline (“ ‘Time for war’ ”) once again illustrates what I believe to be your newspaper’s political agenda.

I read the April 4 letter “Thanking Trump for Warp Speed.” I believe the writer is giving too much credit to former President Donald Trump and Operation Warp Speed for the production of COVID-19 vaccines.

The New York Times article (“Foot In The Door”) published on the Technology page of the April 11 Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline was certainly on point regarding the use of artificial intelligence in matching job seekers with actual jobs.

Spring has arrived. The feeling of reawakening is strong as some COVID-19 restrictions relax. It is an ideal time to start a walking routine to maintain bone health. Lancaster County has multiple walking trails suited for stroller and assistive device use. This increases access for people of…

More than three-quarters of a century ago, my brother and I spent several summers at our grandparents’ farm in Franklin County. The summer farm also hosted our cousins and some of the neighboring kids.

Major League Baseball and Black Lives Matters have the same letters in their acronyms and, in my view, both stand for the most radical left-wing policies in America. I believe they are both causing division between Black people and white people.

I wish to thank LNP | LancasterOnline for the decision to include expanded Major League Baseball box scores — for more than just regional games — on the Sports pages.
