  • Another Perspective: House proposes responsible budget

    The recent drop in oil prices has put a strain on state budgets across the Western United States. While other states are implementing massive budget cuts or considering tax increases to meet their obligations, the House Appropriations and Finance Committee has developed a responsible budget that meets the state’s critical needs without raising taxes or draining our state’s reserves.

  • Just a Thought: We found love right where we are

    “I MADE A WISH AND YOU CAME TRUE!” So said the sign on the shelf at the novelty shop we visited on a recent vacation. My mind immediately thought of my bride of 31 years, Tanya, across the store from me.  I am so blessed this Valentine season.

    MILLERSVILLE, Pa. — Gladys Mohler vividly remembers her first school.

    When she set off for class in the fall of 1932, the Excelsior School was just over the fence from her parents’ farm in Manor Township.

    Her dog would follow her to the little brick schoolhouse.

    “The teacher would let her come in and lie down by my desk,” Mohler reminisces.

    The one-room school let her hear the older students’ lessons, which helped Mohler learn enough to skip the second grade.
