As a retired educator of 35 years, I found the editorial cartoon you ran Sept. 18 offensive and irresponsible.
Offensive, because you, once again, bash the teaching profession. This time, you intimate that teachers support revolutionary dictators and have disdain for ...

To the Editor...and Charitable Organizations:
On behalf of a State College client, my firm recently undertook an analysis of revenue that social clubs in nine counties generated from the sale of games of chance (pull-tabs and the like). The Clinton County ...
I have to laugh at the “no need for alarm” about the hurricanes. Rush Limbaugh was saying on his namesake show, it was all a liberal hoax, nothing to get alarmed about, and then he fled his Florida home to California to get away from Hurricane Irma. Irma had ...

Once again, Washington politicians looking for a hasty victory have placed my patients’ health in jeopardy.
If “zombie” Trumpcare is revived, access to quality and affordable health care will be ripped away from hundreds of patients at our nurse-run health ...

I am writing to you all to let you know how much I enjoy the ride and drive along River Road, the back road from Lock Haven to about a little over a mile before Avis.
I usually take it slower than the 40 mph on which it has you driving; this is to enjoy the ...

There are a few things going on in this country that should never have been allowed to happen, and the common law-abiding citizens who are old and retired are paying the price.
It is downright inhuman for the insurances in this country, which sell their automobile ...
Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.

While biking the Pine Creek Rail-Trail, four of us had just passed a den of four timber rattlesnakes sunning on a rock. Thinking this was the highlight of our trip, we mounted our bikes and continued southward on the trail when all four of us simultaneously ...
I believe the Sept. 7 letter by Tim Mannello, “God’s fairness versus man’s,” misrepresented a popular Bible story to an offensive degree. This was done in a cynical attempt to justify a political agenda: the graduated income tax.
The story of the ...

Nowadays, many people use words they do not think existed when others were young. Yes, I mean swearing, and especially that certain word that can mean almost anything.
It even existed clear back in the 1500s before people started putting things into ...
On Saturday Sept. 9, I met Ronald Bauman, also known to many as “The Can Man” and “The Walking Man.”
I recognized him from a video shown in my church, Blanchard Church of Christ.
Pastor Russel Moldovan presented it to our congregation to make us aware ...
In response to Mr. Scott Knisely’s Sept. 1 letter, “Parking enforcement plus,” lets correct the myths:
1. I didn’t compare our recent 400 percent parking hikes, 3 tickets a day or booting cars to a Philadelphia suburb which has 3.5 times the number of ...
Our planet is in trouble.
In the past week alone we have experienced record-breaking temperatures in California, a “flash drought” in North Dakota and Montana that withered the grain crop so severely that some farmers didn’t even bother to harvest, ash from ...
All those letters complaining about immigrants, documented or otherwise, “stealing” the jobs of hard-working Americans, and what is a recent headline across the nation?
“Se busca ayudante: Immigrants sought for labor shortage in recovery,” a story about ...
Tim Manello, in his recent letter titled, “God’s fairness versus man’s,” used scripture to bolster his belief that the rich ought to be taxed at a higher rate.
Many Liberals do the same when defending the various government programs that redistribute ...
I have been watching events unfold with the protests over the need to preserve ‘White’ rights and ‘White’ history in fighting against the removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee. I watch it unfold and find it hard to believe that we have come to ...

I have been worried about how the Environmental Protection Agency would be run ever since President Trump appointed Scott Pruitt, the former attorney general of Oklahoma, to oversee it. The past few months have confirmed my fears.
The agency created by a ...

Another homegrown, traditional childhood experience is being targeted in our need to be a politically correct environment.
As a child of the 1960s who was introduced to the horrifying experiences of riding down a hill at a breakneck pace on a wagon, ...
