Think? | Happened across this post at a Website (cannot recall where); Knapp once was an editor with Lancaster Newspapers, Inc. That relationship ended a few months ago, evidently.

Another view | Extract from a letter-to-the-editor at NewsLanc: “The contrast between the transparent approach that led to the redevelopment of downtown Lancaster a half century ago  and the the clandestine and vicious manner of how the convention center – Marriott Hotel project was brought about four decades or so later could not be greater. What we have witnessed is the downfall of one of the great counties of the country due to the transformation of its newspaper from protector to predator, a situation that has continued  to this current day.”
