Quote for today … “Sweet April showers do spring May flowers.” – Thomas Tusser
Another Quote … “… there are many GOOD people in Columbia. A lot of this element moves in and out of the area constantly – it’s right between York and Lancaster. Long time Columbia residents are NOT happy about them being in town. It’s so discouraging that so many people have a negative attitude about Columbia. If they were to visit, they would see there are many good residents – along with Hinkles, art galleries, the River Park, cafes – and, of course, the library! ” – Comment following this Lancaster Online article: “Columbia woman pleads guilty to aiding boyfriend in husband’s killing.”
A third quote … “There comes a time when a citizen has to stand out of the crowd. Politicians, media and every citizen must lean toward critical thinking, not crowd suasion.“ – Extracted from another letter-to-the-editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
