Do you ever worry about the Chinese Navy dominating the Pacific Ocean and potentially allowing millions of Chinese troops to invade our West Coast? What about North Korea perfecting its long-range missiles and raining them down on the United States? How about Russia sweeping through western …

I was pleased to see that the School District of Lancaster has opted for an online start to the year. I hope our other local districts will abandon their magical thinking and follow suit. Why “magical thinking”? Consider the following:

As Congress wrangles over the latest COVID-19 relief package, millions of Americans are at risk. Health care in rural areas is desperately inadequate. Schools are begging for funding to reopen safely. Millions might be homeless if the rent moratoriums and unemployment benefit packages are no…

I just watched Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, his pick for vice president, as they both blamed President Donald Trump for the COVID-19 pandemic.

The worldwide response to COVID-19 has temporarily cut global emissions. Less reported, but more important, is the fact that clean energy, with storage, continues to quietly but relentlessly outcompete fossil fuels, without subsidies (which fossil fuels get plenty of). 

This county and country need an investigation of rental policies concerning nonsmoker tenants’ rights versus smokers’ rights. I have experienced firsthand how nonsmokers’ rights are ignored by neighboring smokers, landlords and rental agencies. This can lead to respiratory symptoms and infec…

Three months ago, U.S. House Democrats passed a $3 trillion bill to aid those affected by the collapse of the economy because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill provides a second $1,200 payment to individuals, expanded unemployment benefits, aid to help small businesses stay afloat and funds…

I’ve been very reflective over the past several months. Much has changed. I’m constantly thinking of the future — not mine but my grandchildren (and your grandchildren) and their children. I’ve never felt such anger against a person, nor such concern for our country. 

What has happened to our once-great America? What happened to Americans who worked so well together for the common good in a crisis like World War II? What happened to honesty and the desire to do a good day’s work, versus thinking one deserves a handout? What happened to news reporters and …

In Tuesday’s op-ed (“Anti-mask state lawmaker defends use of Levine’s words”), state Rep. Russ Diamond claims: “I will ... use every tool available to fight that fight.” I would suggest that he is working with a woefully incomplete toolbox.

This is a story of human kindness that certainly brightened my spirit. My dog was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and, as any dog owner knows, it’s awful witnessing your companion’s health decline. Our morning walks were becoming slower and shorter by the day. 

After reading the article regarding the name “Karen” (“A brief history of ‘Karen,’ ” Aug. 1 LNP | LancasterOnline), I want to draw attention to Karen Killilea. In 1940, Karen was born three months premature, and spent her first nine months in an intensive care unit for babies. As a result of…

The July 25 LNP | LancasterOnline article, “CDC says kids need to be in school,” illustrated how difficult a job local school districts have ahead of them as they finalize reopening plans for the fall, both here in Lancaster County and across the state.

The July 25 LNP | LancasterOnline headline read, “CDC says kids need to be in school.” Readers should know that some of the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was edited by operatives in the Trump White House, then put under a CDC logo, according to The Washington P…
