“Mr. Lancaster News” — that is what I think of when I think of Robert Howey. When you mention The Lancaster News, everyone has something to say about Robert. He is the most recognized employee I think we have ever had. We even made a scarecrow of him back in 2018 that was displayed on Main Street and everyone knew it was him. I worked with him for 35 years, but long before that, he was covering Lancaster County sports.
Robert is the best at what he does. I am in awe of him. His style of writing is knowledgeable, informative and witty. He knows every player or athlete, their stats and who their parents are. He knows scores and can describe plays from games and tournaments that took place years ago.
