Am I an elitist if I worry about the welfare of my American friends and neighbors who are nonwhite or non-Christian or nonheterosexual or poor? Am I an elitist if I worry about women’s rights or the environment or health care?

Once upon a time in Washington, D.C., the Republican Party was obsessed with obstruction of Congress and the rule of law. For eight years under the Obama administration, Republicans presided over hundreds of oversight hearings, issued more than 100 subpoenas and even formed a special committ…

Residents of Ephrata should be outraged that they have no apparent say in the selection of their primary candidate. The 99th House District includes Ephrata, which makes up a sizable segment of residents of the 99th. I find it hard to believe that Ephrata School District doesn’t have as many…

The letter stating that the increase in carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere is infinitely small is misleading (“Ignore climate change alarmists,” Jan. 20).

I read the Jan. 18 op-ed “Was order to kill Soleimani lawful?” Wow! I wish this style of commenting on current issues was the only way any American would choose to discuss our government. It is so refreshing to see a thoughtful discussion about a divisive issue that refrains from “us versus them.”

As leaders of a study-abroad group in (the former) communist East Germany, my husband and I experienced extraordinary hospitality. Example: In one afternoon, by knocking on the doors of perfect strangers, we found five families who, at some risk from their government, agreed to host our stud…

I read Brian Frey’s Jan. 18 op-ed, “Was order to Soleimani lawful?” Thank you for expressing concerns rationally, without resorting to derogatory characterization of those who might not share your views.

“Revisiting Rebman’s” in the Jan. 16 LNP | LancasterOnline brought back a wave of happy childhood memories. A trip in early October to see what costumes were on display in their tidy white boxes with the clear plastic window on top. Peering in to see a colorful mask and a silky, one-piece co…

“And Jesus entered into a ship with his disciples. A great storm arose so that the ship was covered with waves, but Jesus was asleep. His disciples came to him and cried, ‘Lord save us or we perish!’ Then he arose, rebuked the winds and the sea became calm. The men marveled, saying, ‘Who is …

Allison Troy has made history. She is a woman in our community who decided to step into a leadership role, who won her election, and who is now one of the Manheim Township commissioners. She not only won, she got the most votes out of all the other (male) candidates.

I do my part for the bees that I got from the Penn State Extension. As stated in the Jan. 18 editorial (“Do your part for the bees”), we all must have some plants in our landscape that the pollinators really like. In my case, I visited the Penn State trial gardens of Lancaster County on a da…

Municipal leaders across Pennsylvania are in a difficult position. They stand between the struggles of the many families that make under $50,000 per year and the unfunded dictates of a few folks in state agencies who make over $150,000 per year.

To serve as a reminder, last year at this time, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the congressional representative from New York City, introduced us to the Green New Deal. She proclaimed that our Earth had only 12 years of life remaining if we did not adopt her plan. We only have 11 years left!

A recent holiday week spent with extended family brought food, fun and the inevitable political conversation. My kids and their friends are now in their late 20s and are well into their careers and thinking about starting families.
