New tax feeding PennDOT

GLENN CROSSLEY Montgomery All over Pennsylvania volunteer organizations in towns and cities are receiving registered letters sent by their local PennDOT Engineering district threatening legal action and fines for posting the small informational signs we see entering many Pennsylvania ...

I’m an American

YVETTE WEIDLER Williamsport It’s about respect and like it or not, Donald Trump is our president. I was at work and heard a plane going over very low, I ran outside. I was just across the Susquehanna River from the airport on The Dell. The sun just going down and there over my head ...

GED

ROBERT GETZ Lock Haven It was encouraging to see that two state senators came to Clinton County to listen to local residents about their struggles as they try to find their way out of poverty. It’s an issue that has too long been ignored. As The Express’ May 29 article pointed ...

Judges too are innocent until proven guilty

STEPHEN POORMAN Lock Haven The Honorable Judge J. Michael Williamson could have greeted a Williamsport deputy sheriff with “sunshine,” according to Lycoming County Sheriff R. Mark Lusk. If a waitress or bank teller is bubbly with a smile on her face, it should be OK to call her ...

Stop the freeloading

BARBARA IRVIN Lock Haven Like many, I have numerous pet peeves. One of the biggest is seeing people take advantage of the system. I see this happen every day. Why is Clinton County (and Lycoming) so full of freeloaders? It makes me sick to know I’m supporting others who are ...

Judge Williamson

KEN PASSELL Lock Haven In regard to accusations as reported in The Express on Saturday about senior Judge J. Michael Williamson, I think that was very unfair to him. With all due respect that he deserves, I must come to his defense,. I admit that I don’t know all the circumstances ...

Far from negligible

KAREN ELIAS Lock Haven This past week we learned that carbon emissions have now, for the first time in human history, reached 415 parts per million. As these numbers continue to rise and our planet continues to warm, more and more of us are becoming anxious about the kind of world we’ll ...

America is a Republic

WILLIAM L. EMICK Barbours James Stuchell and Robert Jacques’ May 23 letter to the editor, “The Biggest American Lie,” was right on when they insinuated certain groups like diligent teachers, conscientious ministers, and loving parents were unknowingly facilitating a fraud upon the ...

Beware

FRANK WILSON Montgomery Think Israel isn’t your problem? When radical Muslims wipe Israel off the map they’re coming for you. Anyone who isn’t Muslim is an infidel and must be annihilated! Wake up America. The Soros, Bloombergs and, so far as I’m concerned, all Democrats are ...

Boo … socialism, socialism!

TIM MANNELLO Williamsport For Republicans, election time is Halloween season: time to dress up their opponents in terrifying costumes to scare voters over to their side. In order to get elected in 2016, Donald J. Trump scared enough people by portraying illegal aliens as a threat to our ...

What does inclusion look like?

KAREN KOCH Williamsport Much is fresh and thriving with the arrival of spring. If only the concept of inclusion could be so easily renewed. I say this as I am both shocked and horrified at the lack of inclusion that I recently learned of on behalf of UPMC. In March the UPMC ...

Both sides of their mouth

GALEN W. SEAMAN Williamsport I see the Democratic socialists are still trying to destroy the country. They still cannot believe that Hillary lost the election. For the past two years, they were spreading the lie about collusion between President Trump and Russia. They were praising Mr. ...

Applause, Applause!

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause. To the person or persons who replaced the flag at the home of George Young, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! The Road Hawgs would like to THANK everyone who ...

A tax on trade

PAUL RINKER Montoursville The political left is all upset about President Trump’s tariffs. They are complaining about how these tariffs raise prices on consumers. Isn’t it ironic how leftists can see that tariffs increase the price of foreign produced goods, but they can’t comprehend ...

The road runs out about 2024

ROMUALD ANDRAKA Trout Run It now appears that kick the U.S. debt can down the road each year by our legislators will soon be coming to an end when they run out of road. According to the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Debt Management, the U.S. government is just five years away ...

Express Yourself

The biggest American lie ROBERT JACQUES And JAMES STUCHELL Williamsport We’re living in a time of endless public lies. If public officials aren’t caught lying, they’re accused of lying. If those accusations don’t stick, the officials are accused of lying about their lying. And ...

The importance of family

BARBARA IRVIN Lock Haven With Father’s Day only a month away, I have been thinking a lot about how much my dad means to me. We have not always gotten along, but he has been there for me. Right now, he and my mom (as well as myself) are dealing with some difficult things. I try to ...

The Stephanie problem

RICHARD MORRIS Lock Haven During her two election campaigns, Stephanie Borowicz made no secret of her love for her God and her love for lethal weapons. A majority of voters saw nothing odd in that combination of affections, and we should not be surprised that Pennsylvania House Speaker ...

Military families come second to a wall

JIM HIRONIMUS White Hall President Trump just allocated $1.5 billion from military funds that were supposed to be used to rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base and moved them to his border wall project. Almost every building on Tyndall was destroyed or damaged during recent violent storms. ...

Our nation has many problems that need to be corrected

ROBERT NORTON Montoursville In a May 5 letter to the editor entitled “Amusing,” Galen Seaman outlined several changes that have been made to the Social Security fund. Those changes to the Social Security fund were initiated by Democrats. Those changes are draining the Social Security ...
