When It Rains, It Gets Dangerous
As of 1986 school year gets underway, I am writing to express a concern about what I consider to be an extremely harmful safety hazard at Lititz Elementary School: the use by children of umbrellas without safety caps on the end of their spokes.
My daughter attends first grade here, and on numerous occasions while walking her to and from school, I observed many children just missing having an eye poked by being too close to another child waving an umbrella. Umbrellas with broken spokes are just like spears!
Young children cannot always handle an awkward umbrella easily, and I feel the umbrellas without safety caps should be banned from school.

Lititz Shall be Free at Last
Negotiations for the purchase by the state and county of the Lancaster and Lititz and Lexington turnpikes were announced Tuesday as having been completed.
The Lancaster and Lititz turnpike is sold for $70,000, and the Lititz and Lexington turnpike for $4,000, a total of $74,000 for approximately nine and a half miles of road. The pikes are purchased by the state and county on a fifty-fifty basis, the state paying $37,000 and the county $37,000.
Lititz at last will become free. Within a short time we of Lititz may travel to Lancaster or in the opposite direction, to to the Lebanon county line, without being assessed a toll for the use of these pikes.

Whooo Needs a Nap?
An owl entered the residence of W. M. Weitzel, this borough, a few nights ago and made itself at home on the bed, where it remained some time.
