Signs of the times! Why can’t Charlie Dent be our elected public servant? He’s one of the very few with the integrity to speak out rather than spew the same, tepid pablum: “I wanna’ be re-elected” crapola!


Borough acquires a former fire station!

Columbia Public Library is expanding!

Lancaster County’s Inspections at Lancaster Online. Funck’s in Leola is barely open a year and rack’s up violations including “The person in charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety in this food facility as evidenced by this non-compliant inspection.” Howz this happen?

York County’s Inspections

Click here to go to the state’s Website of inspections … and the listing of the violations at each location. The statewide directory lists inspections for all municipalities in York County and Lancaster County.… except those in Columbia – Columbia persists in having its own inspection system with its own forms and inspection items – rather than the one used statewide.

etownElizabethtown’s the page one cover article in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster; articles, quotes from residents and four and one-half pages of advertising support.



  1. July 9, 1776 King George was very much alive and the reigning sovereign. There aren’t any statues of President Trump to tear down.

    These ignorant or deliberately misleading oversimplifications and false equivalencies are part of the problem. History is not a comic book and it’s damn complicated.

  2. Indeed! King George was alive and the the reining sovereign. But his statue was torn down on the same day that General George Washington had the Declaration of Independence read to New Yorkers and his troops.

    Statues commemorating illicit, horrific and oppressive leaders have been torn down for hundreds of years … following the overthrow of despotic leaders. Remember when Saddam Hussein’s statue was dismantled in 2003?

    The demolition of images people following injustice seems rational; at the time, in the situation, glorification to injustice and inhumanity may have seemed like the right thing to do during the period of reconstruction … to some.

    Today, though, the statues of evil personages we don’t see in Germany, eastern Europe; and other places do not change history. You’re totally correct. History is what history is and history is “his story” written and colored by the victors. Seldom will the vanquished get to write history; that does not change the facts, just the slant.

    These two articles (“Why There Are No Nazi Statues in Germany ” and “The Statue of George III”) are worth reading.
