I worry for our children’s America

Letters to the editor

HUGH E. McGEE Linden As I watch the national news in recent times, I worry about the America that my children will live in as they get older. It appears to me that our country has some of the worst elected officials at the national level ever. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, ...

Guaranteeing the right to life for all children of Pennsylvania

Columns

As a freshman state lawmaker, wife and mother blessed with three amazing sons, I unapologetically believe all future Pennsylvania children deserve the right to be born. That’s why I am proud to be among the original co-sponsors of Rep. Kate Klunk’s (R-York) pro-life legislation which ...

On your side

Letters to the editor

STEWART B. EPSTEIN Rochester, N.Y. This is the most challenging letter that I have ever written because it is probably impossible to say what I want to say without unintentionally offending some people. The bottom-line is this: While I disagree with his conservative-Republican economic ...

The rodeo in D.C.

Columns

Dear Annie: Could gift be a subtle hint?

Columns

Dear Annie: I read your response to “Loving Mother,” whose children bought her gift cards to clothing stores rather than generic, credit card-type gift cards. Though I agree that honesty is the best policy, perhaps her children were actually trying to give her a subtle hint that she needs ...

My two cents

Letters to the editor

GARY BARRETT SR. Lock Haven In a letter to the editor published March 16 and titled, “Candidate Keller denies climate change,” the writer expressed, in my opinion, a political view rather than information. Also, a new term to me that climate change is a national emergency is now ...

Immigration: Crisis or not, it is a problem

Columns

So, what is the reality of immigration into the United States? Is it the "humanitarian crisis at the border" some speak about, or is it, as others maintain, nothing much to worry about? Both statements are correct — to a point. Border apprehensions had been declining for years. But it used ...

Trump … again

Letters to the editor

ROBERT H. WORKMAN Spring Hill, Fla. I still have a difficult time in understanding why so many people are still for Trump. Every time I try, I get an answer that starts out with Obama or Clinton. I am totally flabbergasted that every single one starts out that way. It’s as if they ...

Dear Annie: Spring is in the air

Columns

Dear Readers: Spring is a beautiful season full of new beginnings. The hibernating animals come out of their slumber to play. Daylight hours are longer, so there is more time to enjoy the warm sunshine. That can be used as more time to hike and play outside. Beautiful baby animals are born, and ...
