Do not blame the Republicans for not wanting mail-in ballots counted early. The Republican-led Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed a bill that would have allowed for the precanvassing of mail-in ballots, but Gov. Tom Wolf said he would veto it. Thus why even try and give him another…
I wonder if Republicans understand that after the demonstrations now being put on by President Donald Trump and assorted Trump minions they may never win another political campaign.
Even after the election is over, I see we still have people joining the “Goody-Goody No Fault Joe Biden Party.” Since they have no faults, they can point out other people’s faults, especially those of President Donald Trump.
Admittedly, I have never been endeared to Donald Trump, not as a person and most certainly not as president of the United States. My disdain has been based not only on his behavior as a bully, a racist, a bigot and a promoter of white supremacy, but also on his policies.
The Nov. 20 letter “Lingering inaction by Pa. Legislature” seemingly contains an incorrect understanding of traffic engineering. The way speed limits are supposed to be set is called the 85th percentile. Tickets are then supposed to be given only to egregious violators.
For the past six years, Gov. Tom Wolf has struggled with the Republican-controlled state Legislature to enact some of his campaign commitments — specifically increasing taxes on the natural gas industry.
Kudos to everyone involved in Manheim Township Performing Arts’ stunning and innovative virtual production of “She Kills Monsters.” Twelve high school actors, each performing separately from home on Zoom, managed to pick up cues, delineate character (in some cases two separate characters) an…
This year’s presidential contest was not the only contentious election in our country’s history. The election between Republican Rutherford B. Hayes and Democrat Samuel J. Tilden was held Nov. 7, 1876. Hayes eventually was declared winner but was not inaugurated until March 5, 1877.
Many people offer reasons for not following the guidelines for mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is an international disaster. We need to treat this as we would any other disaster. Science has proven that the guidelines for mitigation will help lessen the spread of the COVID-…
Any trust I had left in LNP | LancasterOnline as an unbiased purveyor of news evaporated with this election. Why? The Oct. 25 Sunday Perspective editorial (“Issues to consider”) published just nine days before the election, was almost entirely derogatory toward President Donald Trump.
The loss of American cultural norms has fallen by the wayside during these pandemic times, along with the great American tradition of gathering on Sunday for football and food, which often showcased these norms.
If someone were to ask me why there are vigils at abortion clinics, I would say: “If you knew 10 children were slated to die at a certain time and place near your home, wouldn’t you want to be there to stand up for their innocent lives and unjust executions, at least once?”
Some letters to the editor decry the evils of socialism. But rarely, if ever, do they define the word “socialism.” I will spell out what I understand it to mean. When the government hands out money and gives it to those who either will not work, cannot work or perhaps are out of work, that i…
Since spring, Pennsylvania’s schools have been navigating the best way to educate students safely during the pandemic. The challenges are especially serious for career and technical centers that require hands-on instruction to prepare young people for the workforce.
I read the Nov. 20 column by Sen. Pat Toomey (“Remembering unity born of sacrifice”), in which he cited Lincoln's Gettysburg Address: “that a government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
