While recently visiting my “Hometown Proud Market,” I ran into a friend in the far corner of the store without a shopping cart or single item in hand. When asked if he was walking through the store for his health, his response was: “I was looking for one of the Saylor brothers to thank them …

Not only do our legislators choose their voters by drawing their own districts by gerrymandering, but they have empowered their leadership to severely limit their own participation in the bill-making process. Only the ruling party makes the rules. How can it be that bills enjoying that overw…

Janelle Kayla Crossley is running for the House of Representatives in District 199, in Cumberland County. I have been impressed with her ability to listen to, and understand, others. She volunteers and works in the community of Carlisle and surrounding areas, where she hears people’s concerns.

A note to the Never-Trumpers, former Republicans and “moderate” Democrats. The Bushes, McCains, Kristols who think things will go back to “normal” if they can just replace Trump. Things will not go back to the good old days. Biden is not a moderate. He says now he is not a Socialist, but he …
