Great?

President Trump’s campaign slogan was “Make America Great Again.” Does making the country “Great Again” include hiring EPA director Scott Pruitt, who spends taxpayer dollars to employ excess security guards, rent bullet proof cars, travel first class and stay in luxury hotels? ...

A Trump U grad

I didn't know Trump University had a campus in Morris but after reading Mr. Lockett’s letter about Tim Mannello's letter, I came to the conclusion he must be a Trump U. grad. He says he will not be brainwashed or intimidated. He can't figure out if he voted for Trump, he has been ...

A better choice

After Donald Trump's election, I had to grapple with the reality of having a President who threatens social progress. I felt the need to take action. The difficult part was figuring out what that action would look like. I marched, wrote letters, made phone calls and most importantly ...

The sign says it all

I saw this on a sign. Faith does not make things easy just possible. This to me is so true. I don't know where I would be today without my faith in God. Maybe we all need to love one another as God loves us and remember life isn't fair but God is. Tammy Walker Jersey Shore Submitted by ...

How soon we forget

I recently read the article in the April 5th edition of the Sun-Gazette about artifact identification. It is most unfortunate that the person who was responsible for the accumulation of the artifacts at the Thomas Taber Museum was not mentioned. That person was the late James P. Bressler. His ...

Unforgettable

When I read the April 12th edition of the paper, I noticed the article on Jacob Stopper who went to the Easter Egg Hunt at the White House. May I suggest, if you go to D.C. again, have your dad take you to see the changing of the guard and Arlington Cemetery. You will never forget it. Rich ...

Work together

Why all the hate and mistrust between all the major countries of the world? Every leader in this world should be respected for their actions and diplomacy which brings all the nations of the world together, instead of promoting hatred and mistrust towards one another. Some countries cannot grow ...

Three faces

Faces of the protesters in the streets of America From what I have seen on TV and photos in the newspapers there are three face groups of protesters. The first group is the protester who carries their sign, usually quiet, occasionally shouting out a slogan. This person has studies what this ...

Improper mulligan

A recent letter discussed how it is not a big deal that President Trump had an affair with a porn star in the past. Some will say look what happened with President Clinton. That is different to Trump supporters; Clinton had an affair while president in the White House that is going too far. ...

Things have changed

A recent letter stated James Madison, the author of the second Amendment, argued in Federalist No. 46 that the militia composed of "all the citizenry, with arms of their own, … would be sufficient to protect the rights of the people from the federal government if it tried to oppress them." ...

Disturbing

It has been brought to my attention, through researching the United States on line documentation, that Lycoming County is what is called a sanctuary county. I found this somewhat disturbing. I have worked for the Commonwealth for over 20 years, and believed that I lived in a state which did ...

Incredible

I find it incredible how some people on the left think that all of the people on the right are so gullible and would believe their anti-gun crap. Just this month (April, 2018) two cities in the United States have banned the AR15 rifle and has given the owners 60-90 days to turn their rifles in ...

Saved from miserable films

As a loyal subscriber for many years, I tend to read your movie reviews, with interest. Some months ago, the reviews of the film “12 Strong” were uniformly negative, stating that the film was not sufficiently “nuanced.” Despite those reviews, my wife and I choose to see it. While not ...

Amazing level of partisanship

As I witness news about Washington of late I’m amazed by the level of partisanship and the use of political power to further agendas without regards to Constitutional limits and the rule of law. I’m also seeing many examples of the Peter Principal which states people rise to their level of ...

Not even a nice try

I just finished reading Tim Mannello's letter in Sunday’s edition and had to laugh. Either Tim is joking or he is a joke himself straight out of the comic books. First, let me get this statement out of the way: You better believe we will! Now, Mr. Mannello writes about what he calls ...

Solution to pollution

A solution to your pollution means solving the opioid epidemic. This is what you do. Don’t do it, and it goes on and gets worse. Then you get what you deserve, which I think you, the people, and the government would like to see happen. What do you do when you’re having an epidemic? You ...

For what purpose

A number of people keep asking Congressman Marino to hold town hall meetings. Why would he do that? Across the country we've heard yelling and bickering at these meetings – what purpose does that serve? It's completely unproductive. I hear people complaining that Marino wouldn't meet with ...

False comments

Recent comments on the Sun-Gazette website claiming Congressman Marino is connected to organized crime are blatantly false. They are factually inaccurate, wrong, and considered slander. The Congressman has dedicated his life to fighting crime and is in no way connected organized crime. He is ...

Try meeting him

I keep reading comments by Fred Erikson on the Sun- Gazette's website complaining about Congressman Tom Marino. Why don't you make an appointment and speak with him? Marino meets with constituent in all 15 of his counties constantly. Come out from behind your computer and have a real discussion ...
