Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Quote for today … Only when the auditor walked off the job did we realize how serious the business office failures were. That’s when Columbia contracted Mr. Ramsey.” – Bob Hollister, Columbia and Elanco superintendent, according to a School Brief in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.

Another quote for today … The men and women who work for these authorities are predominantly professionals who care about their community and environment. These are the folks who provide services 24/7, repairing water mains on Christmas Eve and unclogging your sewer on Super Bowl Sunday. – Michael Shober, in a letter-to-the-editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster. Shober is a former chairperson of the Columbia Borough Municipal Authority.

  • Despots and bullies are the same everywhere| They make up their own rules. Here’s a letter-to-the-editor in today’s Lebanon Daily News from a Lebanon County citizen chastising a Lebanon County school board of directors for the way the board dismissed a candidate for a director vacancy with a unilateral decision.

  • A (four minute video) about the origins and traditions of the holiest day on the Christian calender: Easter
  • Lancaster County food serving places’ inspection results. You pay your money & take your chances | but when this is a frequent inspection violation: “The person in charge is not performing the duties as required by the Pennsylvania Food Code to actively manage food safety in this facility,” you gotta’ wonder. – Lancaster Online

  1. The Lancaster Newspaper school brief failed to mention anything about the meeting with Aument and Hickernell that was held an hour prior to the board meeting. The ELANCO contract and the lack of state funding for it, were discussed. Also failed to mention that the meeting was not advertised publicly. The LNP school brief did not mention that the vacant school board seat was not publicly advertised either and only one letter of interest was received. There was no public interview of the applicant. How do the residents know any of this if they are not present at the meetings? They won’t find it in LNP. Thanks to this site and Columbia Spy the residents have received free information regarding the “goings on” in their community.
