Serve the citizens

KYLE PECK Port Matilda There are three kinds of people in the world: - Those who make things happen - Those who watch things happen, and - Those who wonder what happened. No matter which group you are in, you should care about legislative rules. People striving to make things ...

Reality check

JOSEPH DeCRISTOPHER Lewisburg A matter of incredulity for those who, from Day One, found it hard to consider Donald Trump as worthy of deference or respect continues to be the loyalty shown him by both (1) the base of voters who support him and (2) the opportunist politicians intent on ...

Voter ‘fraud’

JAY D. MYERS Hughesville For once I have to agree with Donald Trump. There was obviously voter fraud in the presidential election, in my opinion. There is no way that 74 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. I demand recounts in Indiana, Texas, Florida, Wyoming and Montana. There ...

COVID-19

KATHRYN MCFATE Loganton People in Clinton County are sick and dying from COVID-19. It is everywhere. Our seniors are at risk. Our families are at risk. And that evil president is down playing golf. refusing to sign legislation, refusing make the transition from his party to the ...

Say NO to gerrymandering

BARBARA NEUMULLER Port Matilda The Pennsylvania Republican legislators are poised to pass a second vote to adopt a constitutional amendment that gives them total control over who can and cannot be on the state Supreme Court. By creating “judicial districts” to replace statewide ...

Is breaking and entering legal?

DUANE EMERT Lock Haven Is breaking and entering into someone’s property legal in Lock Haven? I went to the two-bay garage I’ve rented with a friend for many years. I noticed the lock was busted off. When I opened the door, our property was all thrown to one side, and a dark red 2004 ...

How’s it done?

WILLIE NORMAN Jersey Shore I’ve read where what I call the “Gestapo” has been shutting down and fining restaurants for allowing “we the people” to sit down and eat in public. How do they do that? That would not happen if me and my buddies (most ex-military/combat veterans) were ...

Worst ever

DAVID KAGAN Pine Creek There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump will go down in history as the worst President the United States has ever had or ever will have. And those who still support him after almost eight weeks of the insanity and chaos that he is responsible for since the ...

Et tu, Fred?

PETER MAZURKIEWICZ Beaver Springs In 1861, the U.S. Congress expelled 10 of its elected members for aligning their faith and values with the treasonous confederacy. They were charged with sedition, a law passed by Congress under our second president, John Adams. The law is still in effect ...

Holiday gift

KAREN ELIAS Lock Haven Back in 2014, we had free-standing solar PV (photovoltaic) panels installed on our property. The panels, set up to face the South, are designed to convert sunlight to electricity automatically. If the amount of energy produced exceeds consumption, the excess is ...

It’s time to change the rules in Harrisburg

RON WILLIAMS Pennsylvania Furnace One thing that most of us can probably agree on is that our national politics are way out of whack. A government that used to be the envy of much of the world has become a laughingstock. So if it’s true that “all politics are local,” is it possible ...

NFC Least

JAKE PICKERING Arcata, Calif. The unavoidable fact that one of the NFC East’s four terrible teams is going to make the playoffs this season as a National Football League division winner is a travesty. The Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Washington football team ...

Fred Keller’s hypocrisy

JAMES KNIGHT East Buffalo Township Like Fred Keller, I took an oath to support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States. Which makes it all the more disappointing that Mr. Keller has violated this oath by supporting the frivolous and unconstitutional lawsuit, brought by the ...

Random act of kindness

ED & JOAN SUMMERSON Woolrich There really is a Secret Santa and maybe I should say Mrs. Santa. My husband and I were shopping at Weis on Hogan Boulevard on Monday Dec. 21. While social distancing and waiting to be checked out, I noticed the lady in front of us had a large order ...

Happy Holidays!

CONSTANCE JEAN WHITE Lock Haven This is a different type of “The Night Before Christmas” story. I received this a few years ago from the Veterans Administration. This is not just for our Armed Forces around the globe, but this is also for the ones who are on the home front with an ...

Congress must act

LEO CORL Bellefonte I respectfully request that Congress pass the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act, H.R. 5434/S. 2602, in 2020. The bipartisan RPM Act protects the right to convert an automobile or motorcycle into a race car used exclusively at the track. Modifying a vehicle ...

Mail-in voting is the future

DAVID and SUE WERNER State College We have all been through an extraordinarily difficult period of conflict throughout this election cycle. Now that it is blatantly obvious that President Trump lost, why do state Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, Pennsylvania’s House Majority Leader, and Rep. Rich ...

Ordinance against loud music

CONSTANCE JEAN WHITE Lock Haven I thought there was a Lock Haven city ordinance where no loud music was to be played between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. weekdays and 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. weekends. Why, then, are city police ignoring that music being played 24/7 at that camper concession stand on ...

Christmas gift ideas

BRYAN SHADE Flemington The holiday season is upon us and this is a great gift for your son and daughter who are set to graduate high school and move on to college. It comes from the people who introduced you to the drinking game that was all the craze during the Democratic debates. When you ...

Republican who voted by mail

DONALD R. MONG Franklin As a Republican who voted by mail, I am hurt and angry that my own congressman would try to take away my vote. U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson sometimes cites his Eagle Scout background. When a scout loses a patrol leader election, the scout can run again in the next ...
