Boundary dispute deserves mediation, not outright lawsuit

Editorials

At the very worst, we hope the supervisors of Woodward Township consider mediation rather than an outright lawsuit over the ongoing boundary dispute with Dunnstable Township. After all, you are “neighbors.” At question is a strip of land about 1,100-feet wide along Woodward’s eastern ...

ACA repeal redux

Letters to the editor

No one should support a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unless the replacement legislation is significantly better. The replacement law should provide insurance coverage for more people, not fewer than the existing law. The replacement’s insurance plans should cover all the ...

Speak out against genocide

Letters to the editor

This past Sunday April 23, was Holocaust Remembrance Day. It marks the January 27, 1945, liberation of the Auschwits-Birkenau death camps. Unfortunately, this is not marked on most people’s calendars, nor is it discussed in most churches and schools. But it should be. This event was ...

Hybrid

Letters to the editor

I strongly oppose the hotel tax rate being increased by the Lycoming County commissioners until the county Visitors Bureau is separated from the Williamsport-Lycoming Chamber of Commerce and becomes an independent organization. The chamber and Visitors Bureau are essentially two different ...

Letters to the editor

I am writing in support of Brian Marshall, candidate for Centre County judge. A shareholder in Miller, Kistler and Campbell, Brian is a respected attorney in our community who has helped many local residents through difficult situations involving custody, child support, and other family law ...

Voters

Letters to the editor

A recent opinion article advocated that the voting age be lowered to 17. Lowering the voting age from 18 to 17 years of age is not the right thing to do. The article states that younger people are more informed now. I disagree with that position. Mark Twain, the great American ...

Lethal injections

Letters to the editor

Good for Arkansas for applying the death penalty. The so-called problems with the drugs they use — I have a solution that some people might not agree with: Pump them full of heroin, it seems to be working for the the addicts. Inhumane you say? But these people are on death row for a ...

Care for our earth everyday, not just Earth Day

Letters to the editor

Growing up, I remember my mom’s shouts, “Turn off lights!” “Don’t waste tissues.” Our area didn’t recycle yet, or we would have done that, too. People couldn’t eat Lake Erie fish because of pollutants; tributary rivers burned. Bald eagles didn’t fly over my Finger Lakes ...

The O’Reilly massacre

Letters to the editor

George Soros’ Media Matters has struck it rich by getting rid of Roger Ailes of Fox News and removing Bill O’Reilly from television. They do this by capitalizing on social justice issues (sexual harassment) and threatening advertisers for supporting these “mashers,” as they were called ...

Energy infrastructure is key

Letters to the editor

What’s happening with the construction (Gas pipeline work could be near) of Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline is exactly how important infrastructure projects should be managed in Pennsylvania. First, this project received unprecedented regulatory review since it was first proposed in May ...

Politicians’ town halls do not foster dialogue

Letters to the editor

I must applaud state state Sen. John Eichelberger Jr., R-Hollidaysburg, for his holding town halls to listen to his constituents. A lot of politicians have been reluctant to do so in their districts because of the heat officials are receiving from their constituents. The same cannot be ...

The state budget

Letters to the editor

JEFF BOWMAN Alexandria, Pa. It’s budget season in Harrisburg. The House has passed its version (HB218) of the 2017-2018 budget and sent it to the Senate. This is the time of year that we taxpayers should be paying close attention because of the impact the final bill will have on our ...

The most taxing time of the year

Columns

By ED FEULNER How does tax season make you feel? Angry? Tired? Probably both, but there’s a good chance you also felt a bit confused while preparing your returns. And who could blame you? The mind-numbing complexity of the Tax Code, with its myriad deductions, credits and ...

Not very healing

Letters to the editor

CHARLES REEDER Montoursville Thank you, Mr. Marlin D. Lilley Jr., for you letter. I am curious: How do conservatives like yourself discern who is “truly poor” from those who “select to be poo?” Speaking as a liberal, poor is poor. There is “able” and then there is ...

Applause, Applause!

Absurdity of KCSD spending

Letters to the editor

“Is it absurd to want to educate a four year old?” This was a question posed by Keystone Central School District Superintendent Kelly Hastings in her welcoming comments at last week’s finance meeting. This line of questioning was an attempt to deter any possible debate about the ...

When will it end?

Letters to the editor

He is still in office, going back on everything he promised, pretty much, when running for office. He has traveled and played golf more than Obama ever did. He’s costing you and me millions just at Mar-a-Lago alone. If he keeps going, he will have wasted more tax dollars on his golfing and ...

What a day!

Letters to the editor

It’s no coincidence that Earth Day, the first anniversary of the signing of the climate agreement and the March for Science are all taking place on the same day, today, April 22. It is the people’s day. It has been the people’s day since 1970, when U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson, ...
