Letters to the editor

Go, Trump, Go!

KEITH MCANDREW Williamsport This is in response to Tim Mannello’s sarcastic letter to the editor of Sept. 21 entitled, ”Trump’s economic touchdown.” As usual, in my opinion, Tim leaves out key details and misleads his readers. I will clarify by correcting his own metaphor. ...

‘The Lazy Poor’

TIM MANNELLO Williamsport Are most poor people destitute because they refuse to work? Or, could it be because full-time work or combination of part-time jobs in which they’re employed don’t lift them out of poverty? Actually, the Trump Administration’s Business of Labor Statistics ...

Durty Dabber Cycle Races in Farransville 2018

CAROL MCDERMIT Lock Haven The Durty Dabber Cycle Races were held the weekend of Sept. 8 and 9 at the Colebrook Township Park. As many recall, we had an extremely wet and damp weekend with many threats of flooding in the area. However, with a very slow weekend due to the weather we had a ...

Making tax money off booze has its side effects

DAVID L. FAUST Selinsgrove I’ve read recent headlines reporting convenience stores starting to sell beer and how “state police made 19,963 DUI arrests in 2017.” Convenience stores sell beer in locations all over Pennsylvania and the nearly 20,000 driving under the influence (DUI) ...

Not to worry!

CHARLES REEDER Montoursville This is for my fellow Democrats and non-Trump supporters. President Obama will be given his due when the economy fails, which it will, and he and the Democrats will receive all of the blame. President Trump, like the Republicans who support him, will ...

A more simple union

PAUL DOORIS Montoursville In times of such national crisis, it’s important to remind ourselves of the foundational principles upon which our nation originally united. From the Declaration of Independence we have inherited the principle that “all men (humans) are endowed by their ...

The Collision Center

CAROL HARTMAN Lock Haven I’ve been employed by Robert Rosemeier for over 20 years. Currently, Robert’s estranged wife, LorrieAnn, despite the fact she had not contacted him for years, is now back in Lock Haven filing a lawsuit. Despite what she says in court, our company is ...

Are you hunting in a DMA?

COURTNEY COLLEY Harrisburg Individuals planning to hunt in the state of Pennsylvania should double-check the regulations that pertain to their hunting spot. Since this time last year, Disease Management Areas 2 and 3 have been expanded and the new DMA 4 was established due to the ...

Congress has abandoned science and protection of human health

MILTON COLE State College The actions of the Trump Administration and its supporters in Congress are tantamount to the abandonment of both science and fundamental human concerns. Climate change is a dramatic example. Every leading scientific organization has concluded that mankind’s ...

‘Big Oil’ seeks help dealing with climate change

ANDREW UHRING State College Guess who is now asking for taxpayers’ dollars to save them from their own foolishness? Big Oil, that’s who. These companies are asking the federal government to save their refineries from rising tides and devastating storms caused by … surprise, ...

Time to unite America

MARLA HAAS Montoursville Nearly one month ago, I attended the first ever Unite Summit in Denver, Colo. At this historic summit, more than 250 concerned citizens from 35 states spent the weekend discussing how broken our political system has become. We asked questions such as “What kind ...

Cynics

WILLIAM C. DINCHER Williamsport Recently, Charles Reeder wrote a letter to the editor (Sept. 1, “You’re not a skeptic”) accusing another writer of cynicism in regard his view on man-made global warming. I see it as skepticism. I worked with scientists. They are, by nature, ...

Thanks, Obama

JAY C. MYERS Hughesville I found it amusing the recent letter in response to my comparison of John McCain and Donald Trump that assumed that McCain hated Trump. John McCain never expressed a hate for Donald Trump, but he did love our country. I’m not sure if Democrats loved John ...

Trump’s economic touchdown

TIM MANNELLO Williamsport President Donald Trump has scored an economic touchdown. He and and no one else has carried the ball into the nation’s economic end zone. There is no denying it. President Donald Trump punched it in for a score from the one yard line. Forget that President ...

My friend needs to use his blind spot

JIM BANHOLZER Centre Hall My marginally disabled friend kindly gives me rides sometimes, so I hesitate being a backseat driver, but recently I noticed a pattern he employs that bothers me when it comes to his restricted parking habits. My friend has a disability permit. His first ...

Lies that divide us

RICHARD TOBIN Wellsboro One of the lies that divide us is that capitalism and socialism are like two islands in a sea with shark infested waters between them. Neither system works well in its purest form. Too much socialism and you’re in the USSR, where bread costs 10 cents a loaf ...

Conservative political thought

STEWART EPSTEIN Rochester, N.Y. Over the past 40 years, I have tried to become an expert on Conservative political thought. I believe it is important to share with your readers the one important finding I have learned. There now appears to be a much larger number of Conservatives who are ...

Dirty politics

IDA TEMPLE Mansfield The recent allegation against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh when he was a teenager is ludicrous. Most of us wonder why it took so long, for the senator, who is now old like I am, to wait until the hearing for him was almost over. Was she, and the ...
