Plumb too liberal
I would like to commend The Herald management staff for removing Terry Plumb from your editorial page. His views and opinions were not in line with the majority of the people in York County.
While it is good to have a difference of opinions, his were consistently and extremely to the liberal side. If you should replace him, please have someone who can objectively evaluate both sides of the ideological and political spectra.
A ditty about Plumb
Regarding the departure of Terry Plumb’s column:
The Herald's in a catch 22
Cut expenses it seems you must do
But when you fired Terry Plumb
That really was dumb
Seems like you haven't a clue!

Say island’s name right
Why can't people on TV pronounce “Antigua” right? On “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “The Price is right” and “Wheel of Fortune” they pronounced it “Antiga.” That “u” in the word has a “w” sound. They should say it like this: “Anteegwa.”
You never hear anyone mispronounce “Nicaragua,” so why don’t people say “Antigua” right? Maybe people should contact these shows and tell them how to pronounce it!
Memories of libraries
I so enjoyed James Werrell’s column Friday because it took me down memory lane. As a child, I lived for the day I could go to the library and visit.
It was such a pleasure to see such a plethora of treasures on the shelves. Then to be able to check out those books – oh what fun! Yes, I , too, loved the smell of books. I must confess, I still do.
I'm happy to say that my 5-year-old granddaughter has inherited my love of the library.
Again, thanks for the memories.
Policy like police state
Regarding the new York school district policy requiring photo-ID to visit schools: I can understand our so-called public school system wanting to increase school security with the recent rash of school shootings all over the nation but I can also recognize the further implementation of a police state upon “we the people.”
The same type of thing took place over a period of time in Nazi Germany before World War II. It’s fairly obvious that we have forgotten that lesson.
