Letters to the Editor

U.S. House Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat from New York, caused a stir in August by saying she didn’t believe President Joe Biden would run again in 2024, even though his official position is that he will (she subsequently apologized). While I firmly believe Biden’s indecision and negligen…

Dictionary.com defines a statesman as “a person who exhibits great wisdom and ability in directing the affairs of a government or in dealing with important public issues.” Would Lt. Gov. John Fetterman qualify as a statesman?

I was angry and sad to read that the prison sentence for a Leacock Township man was reduced after his appeal. According to the article (“Man’s jail time reduced”) in the June 9 LNP | LancasterOnline, the man and his family have a long history of animal cruelty and neglect, dating to 2013. Th…

With only a little more than a month before Election Day, many citizens are speaking out on behalf of the candidates that they believe should be elected to office. Some write letters to the editor, others use social media and some post signs for their preferred candidates.

In a letter to the editor published Dec. 3, 2019, I asked if then-President Donald Trump checked his rights as a citizen at the door of the Oval Office (“Trump has fundamental rights”).

I am deeply disturbed by the Associated Press article headlined — flippantly, in my view — “Migrants surprise wealthy enclave” in the Sept. 17 LNP | LancasterOnline.

It is very tempting to tear into a rant about who wrought what and why (“What Democrats have wrought in US,” Sept. 23 letter) but, in my opinion, the “disaster” to our nation occurred Jan. 6, 2021.

I want to thank you for publishing the story about Octorara High School senior Mason Ellingsworth in the Sept. 24 LNP | LancasterOnline (“ ‘He just goes for it’ ”).
