I have lived in Pennsylvania for almost 40 years, and I’ve seen the benefits of natural gas across Lancaster County. It took us from being a primarily agricultural community to a growing and vibrant county with more than 500,000 residents. From manufacturing, to home heating, to even agricul…

On March 13, Gov. Tom Wolf ordered schools in Pennsylvania to close. School districts in Lancaster County were unprepared and not approved to provide flexible instruction days for their students. LNP | LancasterOnline has published numerous articles on this situation, detailing little or no …

I think the time has come for our state Legislature to go with 100% mail-in for the June 2 primary election. The odds are that, even if it’s not required, most people will still want to practice social distancing at that time.

The Associated Press article on the front page of LNP | LancasterOnline on Monday (“US waited 2 months to order supplies”) cited facts but managed to give the wrong overall picture.

Has there been any consideration about reopening the public libraries? It would be very beneficial for kids and adults who are at home to have new reading material. Not to mention younger kids have lost their library time at school, and older kids (and college students) have few print resour…

People staying home, sheltering in place and limiting social contact is an effective strategy for diminishing the spread of the novel coronavirus. China and South Korea seem to be examples of what has worked, and the exponential spread of infection has been halted. European nations and India…

Every day, we hear more bad news about the COVID-19 pandemic. Should we be surprised? Medical experts had warned us for decades that lethal pandemics were coming. Yet we ignored them, cutting their research budgets. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the worst-case …

In my view, God permitted COVID-19 because we were not paying attention to him. We were paying attention to the fake news, the fake media, the fake government, the fake schools and the fake churches. 

I’m writing in response to the March 28 letter, “Thankful for President Trump.” Please explain the “swift” action taken by the president that you so admire. He knew about the virus in January and did little to prepare for it. Then, when our governors took action to make up for his lack of ac…

Spring is here, but did it ever leave? Fall seemed to skip over winter with a few cold interludes. Why is this happening? The fossil fuel industry, especially in Pennsylvania, continues to proliferate with more fracking, destructive pipelines and contaminated air. This includes the ethylene …

TV reality showman Donald Trump has serious mental health problems, in my view, that have impaired him from facing the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, hampering his ability to lead the country in this time of crisis. 

We have been hearing the phrase “practice social distancing” for a while now. And it seemed to be incongruous, because we are social beings and need to be social, even during these challenging times. 

Two words that frighten us are rationing and recession. But as we mature and grow older, there are many things we must confront, and the time to confront them is now. 

If my children are out of school for the rest of the year, through no fault of their own, and every other child is in school, that’s bad. But when every person’s child is out, and school is over for now, no single child is in a better place than the next, because we’re all in it together.

I am a retired registered nurse, and I wanted to help our local health care providers and first responders. I did a good bit of work in the community in my former nursing career and am a lifelong Lancaster resident. I know the power of community connections. 

I was thinking recently about when this all started. I really wanted to understand the circumstances surrounding this. I know where it started, but I couldn’t remember until I woke up in the middle of the night. I remember someone saying it was fake news that was trumped up by the Democrats. 

After reading your editorial of March 11 (“ ‘This is real’ ”), I ran the gamut of emotions. I was shocked, appalled, disgusted and, finally, amused. After reading it, I, along with my friends, came to the conclusion that you will not print letters to the editor that are critical of the media…

To the letter writer who had social distancing advice (“Social distancing is for everyone,” March 28): Your letter came across as judgmental and condescending. First, don’t make assumptions about a stranger’s life. You have no idea what the circumstances are around someone’s actions.
