I have had the privilege of working with Dave Heck and Al Kling for the past six years on the board of commissioners for Manheim Township. Over the course of a year, we are tasked with resolving a myriad of municipal issues, which requires the qualifications that each of these candidates possess.

The liberal policies of “free stuff” are not how this county was built. My grandfather left his hardscrabble town in a remote part of Greece at 18 years of age and came to America through Ellis Island. I am not even sure how he made it from his village to catch the ship to get here. He never…

For decades, the Manheim Township Republicans have insisted on a two-term limit for their Manheim Township commissioner candidates. Not too long ago, the township Republican Committee denied Mike Flanagan its endorsement because he wanted to run for what was basically a third term, even thou…

In response to The Associated Press article LNP published Oct. 4 ("Hug, Bible, forgiveness all stir controversy), it was surprising to read how a gesture of forgiveness could be seen as taking the focus off the crime and seeking to soothe the conscience of the offender. To be clear, the act …

Paralleling the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, Gov. Tom Wolf announced his support to legalize recreational marijuana in Pennsylvania. How symbolic is it that? Stoners rejoice, “The dude abides.” I can hear the song lyrics to “Don’t Bogart that Joint” playing in the background. Legalizing re…

In response to the Oct. 2 letter to the editor “Church World Service agenda,” let me point out the obvious. A quick Google search would suggest that the letter writer’s surname comes from Scotland or Ireland. So his ancestors at some point came to America from elsewhere, probably looking for…

The Historical Society of Salisbury Township and the citizens of Gap would like to thank Rebecca Logan for the thoughtful and well-researched article (“Setting sun”) on the destruction of the Rising Sun Historic District in Gap in LNP’s Oct. 10 Home & Garden section.

Our president is inconsistent, as shown by his multitude of contrary pronunciations. He is already mounting his impeachment defense by declaring that he didn’t ask Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, and then later saying he did do it, but it wasn’t bad. Then he adds fuel to his own fire seemi…

I am praying to God that within the Republican senatorial ranks and Republican members of the U.S. House, there exist American patriots who will emphasize and explain honor, maturity and empathy to President Donald Trump.

The natural gas industry would like to present itself as a good steward of the environment. That desire is obscured by an estimated 500,000 tons of methane the industry pumps into Pennsylvania’s air annually, as much as five times greater than the industry’s self-reported numbers. Methane is…

Church World Service does very excellent and God-directed emergency relief, rehabilitation and long-term training and development work in both the United States and in many developing nations.

If someone you know in Lancaster County approached you and claimed to have “great and unmatched wisdom,” you probably would be convinced they were crazy. You certainly would not want that person in your life.

It’s interesting to read about stormwater management in East Lampeter Township (“East Lampeter eyes storm runoff fee,” Oct. 1). I live on a steep hill and there were no stormwater regulations when my home was built in 1986. Trying to tax residents just on roof size is not going to solve stor…

It is hard to be optimistic about Hobie Crystle’s chances for district attorney in a county that has distinguished itself largely for preferring old ways, which have proven unworkable, to new ways with great potential for something better.

Wherever you are on the belief spectrum, Mother Earth always deserves respect. But at the rate icebergs are melting at the South Pole, in 100 years New York City ticker tape parades will be canceled and marine archaeologists will find sunken traffic in the once-busy Holland Tunnel.

I am troubled by what I think is a lack of concern on the part of Congressman Lloyd Smucker concerning President Donald Trump and possible criminal actions and violations of the president’s oath of office.
