“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in you, which dwelled first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in you also.” (2 Timothy 1:5 AKJV) Are we giving our children and grandchildren a Godly heritage? Think it over.

The truth may set you free, if you don’t get fired first

Columns

Bari Weiss' resignation letter as an opinion editor and writer at The New York Times was a brilliant biopsy of all that's wrong with the modern newsroom, especially her own, and society more generally — a "cancel culture" that punishes "wrong thinking" and threatens freedom in the most ...

Ugly protests are Trump’s only hope

Columns

It would take quite a spectacle to upstage America's humiliating failure to contain the coronavirus. It's not every day that the Bahamas labels U.S. tourists as carriers of disease to be kept out. President Donald Trump's poll numbers continue to sink as cases and death tolls rise. The only ...

Grateful for The Express

Letters to the editor

I’ve been especially grateful for our community newspaper during these unprecedented times. It is so needed! Many times it has been one of the few links to this community which is currently distanced. It is my link to not only the local communities, but the state, nation and world! THANK ...

Great to see strong investment in our health-care system

We need to take care of ourselves and others. In that spirit, we’re grateful to see Geisinger erect a new medical clinic between the downtown and Lock Haven University campus. Recently, Geisinger took a moment to ceremonially erect the final steel beam to the clinic behind the Fairfield ...

Run against her

Letters to the editor

I read the letter to the editor from George Yarnell on July 24 about 76th state Rep. Stephanie Borowicz. If you don’t like what Stephanie is doing in office you should run against her. I think Stephanie is doing a fine job for what she is doing. Also, I have been reading the papers and ...

Stop the politics

Letters to the editor

Dear Annie: Communication is key to a happy marriage

Dear Annie: I love my wife very much and try to be a good husband. However, my wife has an explosive temper. Whenever she is mad at me, she punishes me by not speaking to me. This time, she has not spoken to me for almost a week. On the other hand, she can talk to her friends on the phone for ...

Draining which swamp?

Letters to the editor

One consistent theme dating from before Donald Trump’s election to the presidency in 2016 was his promise to “drain the swamp.” We learned of swamps as Trump began his run to the White House with promises to “lock her up” referring to his opponent Hillary Clinton. Republicans chanted ...

Trump: The used car salesman

Letters to the editor

I find it amusing that President Trump now says it is a good thing to wear face masks and social distance? I guess he has changed his mind because his staff has finally gotten through his thick head that he is behind in all the polls. He hasn’t figured out that the people who voted for him ...

My husband, Dave, and I have been farming for 40 years. We originally farmed in Sullivan County, N.Y., and then as our son had decided to come into the business, we decided it was best for our family to relocate to Herkimer, N.Y. We, like most farmers, have gone through many challenges in ...
