What Trump did …

Letters to the editor

GREGORY HANCOCK Woolrich I read June Gutt’s letter to the editor, “What Trump said,” published on March 23. I could certainly never change her opinion of President Donald Trump, nor will I attempt to do so. I could destroy her arguments in debate with facts, not sound bites from ...

Trump’s orgy of unnecessary cruelty

Columns

The theme that unites Donald Trump's major initiatives so far is their unnecessary cruelty. His new budget, for example, comes down especially hard on the poor — imposing unprecedented cuts in low-income housing, job training, food assistance, legal services, help to distressed rural ...

Fie on you, Constitution

Letters to the editor

DAN REEDER Lock Haven For 10 long months, the Constitution of the United States was held hostage after the passing of Antonin Scalia. Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the Republicans in Congress spat on the Constitution and on America. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. ...

The Battle of Middlebury

Applause, Applause!

Letters to the editor

An ounce of prevention

Letters to the editor

Ms. Robin Fink was absolutely correct in her letter to the editor, “Will Pa. forcibly vaccinate your child?” published on March 20. Don’t get your child vaccinated against all those diseases because your child might have some discomfort from them — a sore arm or a minor rash. ...

Exhausting cynicism

Rules and regulations

Letters to the editor

All a bunch of guys need to have a friendly game of basketball is a hard surface, a hoop and a ball; you don’t even need a net. You know what the rules are and if someone cheats, you don’t invite him or her back. If there’s more at stake than just bragging rights, like playing in high ...

God Bless the U.S.A.

Letters to the editor

This may never see the printed page, but nonetheless I wish to voice my opinion. The last eight years have been the worst eight years, politically speaking, due to the fact that our country has been represented by a man who I believe apologized for American values and traditions, bowed to ...

Media bias

Letters to the editor

After reading the latest comments to one of my letters from the conservatives who like to attack letters from liberals, I decide to address “media bias.” Let me start that bias is a perception. It is what one person sees and believes is or is not factual. Every presidential election, ...

Free press?

Letters to the editor

In regard to recent letters, I will agree that a “free press” is fundamental to a free nation. However, a free press should also be an “honest and unbiased press.” With the exception of Fox News, the main stream press has become the propaganda arm of the hard left, Democratic ...

What Trump said …

The minimum wage

Letters to the editor

Can’t get a job because you don’t have experience? Can’t get experience because you don’t have a job? Blame the minimum wage! For years there has been a lot of talk about raising the minimum wage in this country. Some say to $10 an hour, some say to $15 per hour. The latest is ...

On health care: Call your representative now

Letters to the editor

Take Robin Hood, turn him upside down and you have The American Health Care Plan, “Trumpcare.” In an all too typical Donald Trump maneuver, it robs from the middle class, the disadvantaged, the poor, and the aged, and gives to the rich. Those who benefit most will be the super wealthy. ...

No representation, no credibility

Letters to the editor

Response to ‘Setting the record straight’

Letters to the editor

Pride. Tradition. Excellence. Does anyone want to know how I achieved so much success at Lock Haven with a lacrosse program that was 2-34 in the three seasons prior to my arrival? PSAC Championships won over and over again, appearances in the NCAA tournament over eight times, and successful ...
