Recently, I saw an article in LNP | LancasterOnline about a project that sought to humanize City of Lancaster police officers (“Police as people,” May 26). I know the intent in doing so is to bring the community and the police department closer together, but, in my view, it misses the mark.

Over the years, numerous superintendents have come and gone in Columbia Borough School District — a mere steppingstone for many. At a recent school board meeting, a few powerful board members voiced displeasure over what I thought was an outstanding job by Superintendent Tom Strickler.

My parents were Republicans. I grew up in Pennsylvania in the 1950s. The country we lived in was the United States of America. l truly do not recall so much talk of “America.” I lived in the United States. Or so I thought I did. We are only one of three “Americas” — a fact that, sadly, seems…

I’m thinking that, every single day of the week, there must be thousands of interactions between police and the public that go on without any violent action between the parties involved.

I am saddened by the death of George Floyd. I cried when I watched the video of him pleading for his life. I believe police officers need to be retrained — even though it is a very dangerous job and they are right to approach it with caution. 

The violence throughout the country after the death of George Floyd shows the importance of education and integration. There is a need for people to take the time to understand people who appear different on the outside but are the same on the inside. 

I am dismayed at the ongoing racial injustice linked to the phenomenon of white privilege. We call black people African Americans. Why don’t we call white people European Americans?

A friend raced sports cars. I once asked the secret to winning. His reply, “The winner is the driver who cheats best.” Rules are made to level the playing field and protect the health and safety of the participants. The driver who finds and exploits the gaps and loopholes in the rules will b…

We apparently have two viruses operating in Lancaster County. One, of course, is the novel coronavirus, which causes COVID-19. The other is not yet named. The unnamed virus is identified by the symptoms it causes — and these symptoms make its presence evident. 

I’m responding to the May 3 letter “Trump did little to prepare for pandemic.” It claims that the White House was warned in late November about the coronavirus and did nothing. This ABC news report was debunked by the Pentagon.

The May 23 letter “Trump handled crisis effectively” failed, in my view, to make the case the writer was attempting to make. The writer asserts that President Donald Trump’s actions relative to the coronavirus crisis have been effective.

As a retired medical technologist with a specialty in microbiology, I am appalled at the White House’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the start, administration officials were behind in containing the virus. Did they think if they closed their eyes and plugged their ears the pandemic…

As explained in the May 10 Sunday LNP | LancasterOnline editorial (“Heaviest Toll”), the concerns of Congressman Lloyd Smucker and state Sens. Scott Martin and Ryan Aument for the welfare of nursing home residents are inconsistent with their failure to support adequate government oversight a…

What is wrong with us? We have diligently followed the directions of our governor for more than two months. In my view, we successfully weathered the onslaught of the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Now, after months of going only to our grocery stores and big-box stores, after months of having our …

Gov. Tom Wolf should take responsibility for the nursing home deaths that his administration could have prevented. Instead, he called elected officials who sought to defy his orders and reopen some counties “cowardly” and “selfish.” And he threatened to take away what’s left of the livelihoo…

As a volunteer for Providence Township parks and recreation, I find it a disaster in the making to allow township supervisors to fast-track a vote allowing horses on a trail it was never designed for (“Providence supervisors approve horseback riding on Enola Low Grade Trail,” May 14 LNP | La…

Again I read in the LNP | LancasterOnline Opinion section that we should all essentially be cowering in our homes — safe and protected from the evil virus. We should stay indoors and let our businesses just dry up and go away. Watch the local stores and restaurants close — many for good — so…

Like many of the anti-Trump letters the LNP | LancasterOnline Opinion staff chooses to publish, “Trump did little to prepare for pandemic” in the May 3 Sunday edition was misleading. Even untruthful.

Memorial Day in Maytown has always meant a street flea market, family picnics, a town parade, bands, special music, a speech in the square, and a fresh flower placed on each veteran’s grave. This year was very different, of course. But, thanks to one young lady, the most important tradition …
