Really, really

Maxine Waters, congresswoman from Los Angeles, California is giving President Trump advice. This woman’s IQ is 2 points above plant life. Recently she said leave the refugees in so we can tell which ones are terrorists and that we need Sharia law in the USA. Please keep your opinion to ...

Picture perfect

What is wrong with this picture? A couple of years ago some nice people put some scarves around the necks of some baseball players during the winter months — then again during the 4th of July. Some nice people put some leis around their necks. Well, guess what, these nice people got ...

Public utility requirement

As I understand it, the Bus Company is planning to cease service to and from Williamsport. I believe it is a public utility and requires the Public Utility Commission to approve it. Let us see that the people in Harrisburg will allow this to happen as it is a major plus to our area access ...

Wake up, America

Have you heard what a North Korean Colonel said to Kim Jong Un? “Leader, we just found a film in Hiroshima, you should watch it.” The Democrats think President Trump used too strong a message, then they think he wasn’t strong enough on white supremacists. What about President Obama not ...

The simple solution

Isn't it ironic that the alt right are upset by the prospect of a future where they will be treated like minorities have been treated for over a hundred years. Simple solution...treat everyone as you wish to be treated. Glenda Heyd Montoursville Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

Sidewalks

Today I went to Wegman’s to get a few things. I went down on the bus and rode home on my scooter. Again, I had to ride in the street because the sidewalks are so bumpy! I will keep complaining about our streets and mostly the sidewalks until something is done about them! I’m even ...

Republicans should disavow Trump

In the 2000 Presidential election, Vice-President Al Gore should have won in a landslide. The economy was doing well and the Federal Government was running budget surpluses. Instead, Gore lost that election because he didn't do enough to distance himself from President Clinton's sex ...

Battle for land

As intelligent Americans which most of us are, or at the very least should be, we must be aware of three entities which have been stripping us as citizens of our most treasured liberties. Environmentalists want our lands, government wants our money and the liberals want our constitutional ...

Tough job

I am referring to the job Donald Trump has as president. He will be criticized by some group or party no matter what he does. So far he has made some very prudent and profound decisions. Top of the list now are North Korea and Iran, with a crackdown on North Korea unavoidable now. The vitrolic ...

Immoral law

Some laws in this country were made and kept, even though they are reprehensible and morally outrageous. An example of this was published recently that across the United States there is no general duty to render aid to someone in distress. You don’t have the duty to rescue someone if that ...

A moment to pause

Recently, I read a letter from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission on the dire need to raise the fishing license fees to support the growing needs of their department. The letter discussed the wonderful programs and enforcement efforts that the department is currently conducting and the ...

A lot in common

For many years I climbed to the top of a mountain for exercise and enjoyment, and began to realize wild deer and gullible Democrats had a lot in common. Deer are born with an inborn instinct to roam freely within their browsing habitat and protect their lives from human threats. Democrats are ...

Fire and fury

In response to a question about the many threats that North Korea is making against the United States, President Trump said, "They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." Liberals in the main stream press have been left aghast at ...

Big steps for the Crosscutters

Since there is an allotment for the improvement for the Crosscutter’s remodeling. I would like to see steps put in the steep hill near the bike path. People coming from the Newberry area often try to take a short cut down the hill. I’ve seen several people fall going down or coming up the ...

Tweets and Nukes

For a President, tweeting and nuking take about the same amount of time. It would take any President about as much time to launch a nuclear missile as it would to send an immature tweet. More disturbing, as NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden has pointed out: "The (nuclear launch) system is ...

What a difference

I read in the paper today that a young lady was helped by the prison system in overcoming the drug problem she had. Jennifer Colon is to be commended for her change in direction. What a difference in her looks! I am so impressed! I hope other drug addicts are encouraged to do for themselves ...

Birthplace of Little League

Here we go again. Children are going back to school and college. I forgot to mention another year of stealing the bat from the statue of the Little League player from the people of Williamsport. I sure hope they get the person responsible. I know it would not be a college student because ...

A Christian nation

Is Christianity a religion or the name describing several different religions? Who settled this country in 1620? Who fought in the Revolutionary War? Who signed the "Constitution of United States". We are indeed a "Christian Nation" Tell me what countries allow more immigration than us? ...

A bright gesture

I thought I'd brighten your day with something other than the usual political diatribe that appears here every day from many of the same familiar names. Anyone who has traveled down the Golden Strip in Loyalsock Township this summer could not avoid noticing something very nice. Surrounding ...
