SOUL AND PASSION!
SOUL OF THE CITY
“Anyone who thinks that the Contention Center is going to revitalize the city has not spent much time in the city over the last few years. The city is being revitalized by a few intrepid souls who are willing to take risk without having the $$ in the first place. If you listen to NPR or read anything published outside of Lancaster you will see that cities all over are struggling to repair the damage done by projects such as this. It looks good, but takes the soul out of the city. Lancaster needs to focus on its residents and the people will keep this city vibrant, then and only then will it be attractive to outsiders. The Watt & Shand is a perfect metaphor for this shortsighted approach to revitalization ‘A Façade.’”

I couldn’t have said it any better myself. In fact, I couldn’t have said it this well. It’s time to move on and hold on to our souls.
PASSION FOR THE BOSS
"IF I HAD A PASSION FOR THE LOL boss I could design and sell these tees 50/50 blend for $2.00; however, you can "sucker the public" for $15.00 a tee with your generic design! good luck! PS - BECKY DOES DESERVES A TEE. The "lol Boss" Is A Super Jerk! - Reporter Talk"
Posted by Daisy, the consummate shopper and T-shirt designer for the Tornado Alley kids, on Talkback under the thread “Hey kids! Get your LOL Boss t-shirt today!”(click here).
Oh, but I do have a passion for the LOL Boss! (Don’t tell anyone!) And I do deserve a T-shirt! You stole my line, LOL Boss. That makes you a super, super jerk! But you have a sense of humor - so I forgive you. My address is under the “Contact Us” button, LOL Boss, and I’ll be waiting! (Pink is my color of preference, size medium and short sleeves, please. Do you suppose the LOL Boss has “nooners?”).
[P.S. I'm mad at him again! He changed my link to come back here. Ha! I will get you, LOL Boss! You will have to go to the Talkback Board to find the thread.]
“Taking the notion of ‘Open Government’ to the extreme, nearby office workers dubbed the pair ‘the nooners’ because they met over lunch hour several times.”
“County Employees – Sex in the City,” Ron Harper, 5estate.com (click here).
With all the hub-bub over the convention center, Harper’s latest intriguing investigative piece got overlooked. There’s even a picture of a house with an arrow! Wow! Can you beat that for an investigation?
But I don’t get anything in this “article.” First he says a deputy prothonotary “was fired for having multiple outdoor rendezvous with the ‘Don Juan’ of the county maintenance department.” But in his next sentence he says, “The couple met in the alcove of a private residence across from the Lancaster Art Museum and the nearby Musser Park.”
So which is it, Harper? Outside or inside and who owns the private residence? How did they get access to it?
Then Harper says, “Lancaster City Police reportedly are not pressing charges because they didn’t ‘catch them in the act…’” Is sex illegal? I know adultery is a sin but is it a crime you can be arrested for?
Then Harper says they both lost their jobs and posts a resignation document with the name crossed out. Why did they lose their jobs? Is it anyone’s business if you have sex over your lunch hour? Apparently one resigned under pressure. Was the other fired? They should get a good lawyer.
And more than anything, what the hell is the point of this story? To let us know that Harper is an “insider” and knows the courthouse gossip? Harper seems to have a fixation on “serial fornicators!” Get help, Harper!
