Racism

Letters to the editor

I didn’t used to think about racism very much. I didn’t have to. Then came July 1, 2014. That’s the day my son was born. My little boy, Paul Matthew, is now almost six. He’s a sweet, bright little guy who loves drawing and animals. He was born in New Orleans, he is adopted, and yes, ...

Finding peace

Letters to the editor

Our world, as we have known it, is turned upside down. We have walked away from God and now we live with Him being on the other side. We live with the results — no longer under His loving protection, under the “shadow of the Almighty,” no longer “a nation under God.” Scripture ...

Hear the science

Columns

In the parking lot of a local store, my dear friend witnessed an exchange between an older woman and a younger man. He wasn’t wearing a mask, the woman noted that he should, he told her to mind her own business; he said no one is going to tell him what to do. Here’s the thing, yes, they ...

Respect and honor

Letters to the editor

It has been some time since I have written a letter to our area newspapers. I had open heart surgery at age 86. I but I’ve always had a strong desire to write, even though I received my eight grades of elementary schooling at the one-room school house near Spook Hollow and Martin Roads in ...

Dear Annie: Supporting people who have lost loved ones to COVID-19

Columns

Dear Annie: Most people have not experienced the loss of a loved one from the COVID-19 virus. However, my father died Friday night after fighting weeks for his life. The situation was agonizing and yet our friends’ reactions to it have been a bit surreal. Here are some tips on supporting the ...

Insanity

Letters to the editor

It is unbelievable that there are a few people who want to return to 2-percent growth, high taxation, over regulation, energy dependence, China sticking it to us on trade and supporting Iran. There is no way to make any sense out of this insanity.

Gun rights

Letters to the editor

In a recent newspaper letter to the editor urging everyone to “wear orange on June 5,” the writer advised she was a member of Moms Demand Action and her group “is a non-partisan, pro-2nd Amendment group which advocates for safe gun storage and common-sense gun laws.” As a retired ...

Church doors open

Letters to the editor

To the people who want churches open during the pandemic: Do not rush to open the churches. Virus strikes people wherever they are unprepared. This virus is just one way God is trying to reach people to come to Him. When the churches were open and people attended, what were they there for? ...

Why?

Letters to the editor

Clinton County by statistics is the second poorest county in Pennsylvania. These stats are from last year so I really don’t know if they have changed at all or or even changed a little. I have a few questions. If our county is so poor then why are the gas prices so high? There are many ...

Dear Annie: I’m so embarrassed!

Columns

Dear Annie: What do you do about embarrassing memories that pop into your head randomly and make you want to crawl in a hole? It seems to keep happening to me lately. I’ll be washing my hair in the shower, or trying to drift off to sleep at night, when, suddenly, I remember a humiliating ...

Immediate testing at nursing homes overdue

Our View

Once the grim tally of deaths from COVID-19 is finalized — sometime later this year, we hope — there is little doubt it will be clear that nursing homes are the coronavirus’ favored killing grounds. To most public health leaders, that already is obvious. In some states, most of the ...

Business loans

Letters to the editor

Just read recently where large chains, like Providence Hotels, received small business loans. The Providence owner donated $1 million to the Trump campaign. Has The Express checked to see if any local small businesses have received a loan?

Columns

DEAR DR. ROACH: I give my wife an octreotide intramuscular injection monthly into the gluteal muscle. I was taught to pull back on the needle to be sure you aren’t in a blood vessel. Sometimes, I am unable to inject the medication (just can’t plunge the syringe) despite being sure the ...

Two dams near Midland, Mich., failed last month after record rains, with 4.7 inches falling over 48 hours. Dow Chemical activated the emergency plan for its headquarters and production facilities in Midland, and reported that floodwaters were commingling with containment ponds at the site. ...

“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” (Isaiah 64:6 AKJV) We are not good enough. We all fall short. This is why we need the grace of God to forgive us.

Riots again

Letters to the editor

So far as I’m concerned, the riots occurring today have nothing to do with protests. They are committed by the thieves who have been excused by parents and the government. They are allowed to use the non-violent protests for whatever they want without consequences or with the belief ...

How about our president!

Heckuva job, Trumpie! It’s been 25 years since President George W. Bush lauded Emergency Management Agency Michael Brown for the job he did with Hurricane Katrina. A total of 1,833 lives were lost to Katrina. Bush thought that Brown did a wonderful job. “Brownie, you’re doing a ...
