The rule of law?

Harry Nash, I have to remind you of former dear leader Obama and his visit to Ireland? What event was happening in that country when he visited his Irish family? Here's a clue, same as the event going on in Isreal when he sent a letter against Bibi. That's right, a presidential election was ...

Derangement Syndromes

Charles Reeder got a big laugh out of a letter I wrote about TDS Trump Derangement Syndrome. He wrote about all the different syndromes the left is suffering from. He actually added to my letter which really shows that liberalism is a disorder. Charles Ardell South Williamsport

Canine comparison

President Trump reminds me of a Chihuahua. He spends his days yapping to build himself up in the eyes of his followers. He stays close to his base the way a Chihuahua bravely roams its fenced-in yard. And like a Chihuahua, it is easy to see that the noise is just to compensate for a lack of ...

Immigration

Our American government should make a military deal with Mexico and Central America. We have troops all over the world in places where they are not needed. Why not send these military forces down into Mexico and Central America to straighten out these corrupt governments in these countries and ...

Peaceful solution

Regarding the letter “Middle East Catastrophe.” The writer’s biased and short-sighted opinion of our administration and Israel is off base and detrimental to a peace settlement in Middle East. Iran’s warped slogan for decades is “Death to United States and Israel”, making Iran an ...

Defined by one man’s wishes

Not enough opportunity

Having checked job boards and newspapers, it is evident Greater Williamsport has only low paid, menial vacancies for job seekers. This is unacceptable and the city leaders must be held accountable for not attracting and retaining more employers to the area. There is nothing here to keep our ...

Lid on a garbage can

I think whoever pulled the plug on Roseanne should get a medal. They finally put a lid on a garbage can. Rich Newman Williamsport

Remember

Regarding the recent letter saying, "If God and prayers were put back into schools and colleges, there wouldn't be any shootings", a reminder that our only local school shooting was at a Catholic school where there are daily prayers and Bible readings. Janet Hurwitz Williamsport Submitted ...

Stop the divisiveness

Shame on athletes in the country making millions of dollars who cannot show respect to the flag. The flag represents men and women helping to keep me safe and free and honoring those who gave their lives for this country! The men and women in the military do not care what color you are. It is ...

Missed ice cream stores

Recently, on the front page of the Sun, I read, with pleasure, the history of Hurr's Dairy store and others, in my old Vallamont neighborhood. It was a great article and thoroughly, I enjoyed it. Congratulations. But, I was saddened to notice that my Grandpa's Ice Cream Store at the rear of ...

Unanswered

A final word

The following is a list of some of the items one might expect to find in the Democrat Party’s political platform for the coming mid-term elections. These are based on some of their stated positions heard regularly on mainstream media outlets that are better known as the propaganda wing of the ...

Enough to survive?

The Keystone Central School Board has furloughed many teachers as a means of rightsizing. The Jersey Shore Area School Board, which is facing over a $1.4 million deficit, gave notice to 32 teachers that they were being considered for furlough but there would probably be 9 to 10 whose positions ...

Why we salute

It was the evening of July 18th, 1863, when the Colonel of the 54th Massachusetts stepped in front of his men and prepared them to storm the Confederate stronghold of Fort Wagner. The regiment had marched for two days in rain and searing heat to reach the sand walls of one of the forts ...
