Letters to the editor

Donald J. Trump

I am writing in response to letters from people who want Donald Trump to start “acting more presidential.” I and all of my rowdy friends (you can call us deplorables if you like) disagree. We like Mr. Trump just the way he is. That is why we hired him back in November. We have had ...

Fair and unbiased reporting?

The media will say or do anything to prove how much they hate President Donald Trump. Example: During a recent ABC News show at 6:30 p.m. they reported how costly it is to the taxpayers and local police when Trump traveled to Florida for his working weekend there. They also reported how ...

Solution to LHU’s challenges

Lock Haven University and the City of Lock Haven had a symbiotic relationship for over 100 years. The city is dependent on the university and the university is dependent on the city. If either partner fails, the other suffers. It has become completely evident over the last few years that ...

Scandalous

National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has resigned after 24 days of a Donald Trump presidency. Flynn was not truthful about his communications with Russia and Vice President Michael Pence was made to look like a fool about it. It is no wonder the Trump administration has attacked the ...

DA’s preemptive strike?

It is incredible to me that a sitting Lycoming County district attorney and judge-wanna-be would refute attorney Mary Kilgus’s accusations by stating solely that the reporting former employees’ credibility is assumed because they have identified themselves to authorities. While that may ...

Indoctrinated

Remember when people thought Walter Cronkite’s telecasts of the nightly news was the gospel truth or when we would read the daily paper and believe that it was totally accurate news? Most people never questioned what they saw, heard or read from the media. What we didn’t know, I ...

Sen. Toomey is still missing!

It is currently a Congressional recess. This is a time earmarked for elected officials to specifically meet with their constituents to discuss concerns and issues. I have contacted the Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey’s staff several times. I asked for his schedule, while he is home, so I ...

A people divided

These past few post-election months have been undeniably rough for all of us. We’ve seen everything from fights to large scale riots in response to our 45th president, each one shoving the knife deeper into our divided nation. The grand majority of us only see each other as Democrat or ...

What do we have?

BILL WEIBLE Johnstown What do we have for a president of the United States? A paranoid, egomaniac with a bombastic, cry baby, “my way or the highway” attitude (if the news isn’t to my liking, it must be fake). Or, have we a puppet, a marionette who is easily manipulated or duped, ...

‘Hello. I’d like to speak to Sen. Toomey’

KRISTINA GUTHRIE Duncansville Thank you, Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, for inviting us to participate in your a tele-town-hall. I was able to upload a question prior to your cast and was pleasantly surprised to find that you chose to answer a similar query from another constituent. ...

Please

MARLIN D. LILLEY JR. Cogan Station I keep reading letters that disparage President Donald Trump, who has only been in office for a few weeks. These same people are more than willing to forget the lies and scandals of the Obama administration that reeked havoc on our country for eight ...

Thanks, Williamsport police

DAVID and LOUISA STONE Williamsport On two recent occasions, some kids broke into our Williamsport Bicycle Recycle Shop at the Pajama Factory. They stole five bikes. We reported both incidents to the city police and gave them descriptions and pictures of the missing bikes. The police ...

Applause, Applause!

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause. THANK YOU, Walmart employees! I just want to publicly acknowledge the wonderful staff and employees at our local Mill Hall Walmart Store. I am a 77-year old widow who ...

Don’t cut LHU programs and hurt student-athletes

In response to The Express’ article reporting possible cuts to some sports at Lock Haven University, I feel that you have been misinformed by the university administration. There has been a great deal of outcry by the alumni over the possible cutting of the men’s indoor and outdoor track ...

Dear Sen. Toomey

I have been an environmentalist ever since my dad started taking me for canoe rides, sitting between his legs, on the Perkiomen Creek before I could even walk. My grandparents had a cabin on the creek, near Collegeville, where four generations of my family grew up and learned the wonders of ...

Great job, G.T. and friends!

WOW! G.T. Thompson and friends are on a “fast track” to make America great again. In the past few weeks, they voted to: r Allow insurance companies to charge women more than men for their health insurance. r Tell President Donald Trump that he did not have to release his tax ...

Trust and truthfulness

The President of the United States has accepted the resignation of National Security Advisor Mike Flynn. The president stated that he did so because Flynn is neither trustworthy, nor truthful. We, The People, are waiting for the President of the United States to resign. Why? He is not ...

Teen dating violence awareness month

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Teen dating violence is defined as the physical, sexual, psychological, or emotional violence within a dating relationship, including stalking. Approximately 1 in 10 teenagers in the United States who have been on a date or in a ...

Naloxone

The use of Naloxone can save a life. Naloxone, also known as Narcan is an opioid antagonist used in opioid overdoses to counteract the life-threatening depression of the respiratory system. It allows an overdose victim to breathe normally. Although traditionally administered by emergency ...

Teachers’ contract

I just read that the Montoursville Area School Board approved a five-year teachers’ contract with yearly cost of living increases salaries of between 2.3 to 2.9 percent. A quick calculation that this is a compounded increase of 13.8 percent over five years. It begs the question: How many ...
