today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!

Quote for today  “I say hang ’em! they usually do………….., all self serving phonies that only have the gift of gab! this trash is not solving societies; iills they are problem, self centered, scum that think the only way they can get a head is to step on the little guy, what i want to see is trash like this rubbed into the ground, know what it is like to earn a living, pay the property taxes you impose, then you back self serving administrators, spend thousands of dollars to bring in a transplant from who knows where to be a leader.” – comment following this Lancaster Online article about the dirty school board tactics in Manheim Township.

Second quote for today … “We expect our public officials to be honorable and obey the law … ” – Yeah, you’d think, huh?Change.org

  • An arrogant, entitled “I am a hot-shot business owner” approach to public sector doesn’t always work. – Linkedin
  • School boards, governments, police departments, all should consider having “truth and transparency officers.”
  • Borough Council meeting 2nd Monday (Monday, February 8) at 7:00 pm
  • There’s been a tab at Columbia news, views & reviews called SUNSHINE WEEK. Transparency and open government is good government.

sunshine week


  • New broom sweeps clean | a standard-fare comment following almost every “big guy eats little guy” corporate takeover is “we anticipate no changes.” Then in a few months, there are changes. Gotta wonder about that? Is the big fish lousy at anticipatory thinking or is the big fish just lying? Here’s a big fish hospital story.
  • Like that Lancaster’s Police Department has a POLICE LOG at its Website.

This poor guy just got it all wrong

“Suspect arrested in Wednesday robbery at Wells Fargo”

What he should have done is gotten a job at the bank, or a church, or fire company and stole the money from the inside.

Count on it: this guy will get jail time, for sure.

Were he a middle-aged frumpy white woman … wrist-slap – probation and “pay it back as you can” or a couple of bucks a month.



“reprehensible,” “deeply troubling” and “embarrassing.”

So those kinds of despicable acts have to happen first before citizens sit up and take notice?

Had it not been for the determination of the LNP – Always Lancaster reporting team, citizens would never know.

In this representative democracy, we vote for leaders of character. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case with local elected offices.

Gosh, it’s so easy to practice ethically and in a transparent mode. Why do school boards not understand this?

throw them out

Maybe there’s hope for citizens to get rid of “elected public servants” who do not have the interests of those they serve at heart: See what Manheim Township’s citizens are doing.
