In response to Mr. Cohick’s
letter about Oprah’s speech
I am a white female. I’m a woman in her late 20s. I live in the City of Philadelphia but I was raised in Avis and Lock Haven by my divorced parents.
I had a moderate hippie for a mother and a ...
We need more than
talking just points
I lived near Howard for a while before moving to State College because I couldn’t find work in Clinton County.
My parents got The Express when I was a kid so I still check it out online quite often.
Curious, it ...
The cost of doing nothing
I recently tuned into the evening news, only to learn that area deer hunters successfully organized a “shout down” of the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC)’s plan to harvest 40 deer for a Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) study.
The whole time the genius was running for president, all we heard was “build the wall.”
Who’s going to pay for it? Mexico, he said.
My how things change. Now it’s “build the wall” and who’s going to pay for it? We are. He says he has a ...
I’ve just been looking at the Pennsylvania governor’s budget proposal and I’m disheartened to see that Wolf still hasn’t got a good idea how the economy works. Don’t get me wrong, I did see some things I liked, but there are a couple of things ...
Wake up, Black America
Concerning President Trump’s state of the union address. The obvious failure of the Washington Democrats to stand and honor the parents of the two black teenage daughters killed by MS13 was shameful and insulting to America.
Infant Development Program board of directors and staff would like to THANK all those who came out for our annual Sip-N-Dip on Monday, Feb. 5, with Potter’s Palette held at Haywood’s. We would also like to thank the following businesses and individuals who contributed to the raffles. ...
Unionized teachers’ rejection of a two-year pay freeze in the Keystone Central School District simply affirms something we already know: Teachers don’t trust the administration-school board, and the relationship between the two has been sour for quite some time.
In its two-part response ...
In Everytown, USA, the local fire department exists to put out fires; it doesn't exist to extinguish residents' uncomfortable feelings.
The same notion should apply to colleges and universities throughout the nation —as they exist to educate students, not to protect their delicate feelings ...

Stocks, which only recently were practically hitting a new record every other day, suddenly seem to be in free fall.
Global stock markets plunged on Feb. 5, continuing the already precipitous decline from the week before. The Dow Jones industrial ...
Dear Annie: I’m hoping you can settle a little disagreement between my 16-year-old daughter and me. The two of us live together in a modest home, which I am proud of. It is nothing special, but I work hard to keep it neat and organized.
When we have company, I am very welcoming and ask our ...
Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.
I wish to thank my family for my surprised 60th birthday party Jan. 20, 2018. THANK YOU Larry, Deb, Nancy, Kathy, Dennis, Dave, Nathan, Karen, Eli and Kyper. The cake ...
Perhaps some voters will be fooled by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s “coup” early this week.
Thoughtful Americans will not.
After a weekend “government shutdown,” the Senate voted to approve a spending bill that got all federal agencies back up and running.
Until Feb. ...
Kudos to Lock Haven City Council for moving forward with demolition of the fire-ravaged eyesore and very dangerous former Heilig-Meyers building on Bellefonte Avenue downtown.
It won’t be cheap... tearing down this sprawling, gutted building.
We’ve heard an estimate of $125,000, and ...
Democrats are applauding the Democratic-controlled state Supreme Court’s split decision that Pennsylvania must redraw its 18 congressional districts because they are unfair to voters.
Republicans in the Legislature are outraged over the court’s decision because it conceivably voids the ...
Clinton County may not have a $200,000 budget and four to six paid staff members in its Big Brothers Big Sisters program to qualify as a nationally-accredited service, but the needs of its kids are just as important.
In fact, perhaps those needs are even greater here because there are fewer ...
Lock Haven is on a much-publicized list it does not want to be on.
Again — a year later — Lock Haven is ranked as the No. 2 “poorest” town in Pennsylvania.
Yes, as PennLive.com (Harrisburg Patriot News) posted this week, “poverty is prevalent in Pennsylvania.”
It’s prevalent ...
rustration abounds over the financial mess in which the Keystone Central School District finds itself.
A projected $10 million budget deficit for 2018-2019 coming just after multiple new employee union contracts were signed, a Pre-K program begun with a bunch of hires, and significant ...
Some like it, some don’t.
It all depends on whether it’s good or bad.
We certainly do not have a crystal ball to foresee what will come to our region in 2018.
Sure, there are things we know about, but it also doesn’t hurt to speculate.
If you’ve already read our ...
