We agree

Recently Maxine Waters became extremely shocking in her deliberate attack on members of the Trump administration, encouraging the “people” to harass them on the street, in restaurants and wherever. To basically worry them as well as their families. How dare she, in my opinion, is a ...

A boiled frog

If you try to place a frog in boiling water it will try to jump out. If you place a frog into a pot of water and slowly bring it to a boil the frog will not try to leave. A local climate change denier, sorry that is “skeptic”,' not denier, wants “empirical evidence” that this is ...

What side, South Side!

The other day I read an article that South Williamsport is Williamsport. Last I knew taxes were different from South Williamsport than Williamsport. Next time whoever says such nonsense, they’re wrong. Chris Lynn South Williamsport

Understanding enchantment with Obama

In a recent Pew poll 71 percent of Democrats choose Barack Obama as the greatest president of our lifetime. To understand these numbers one must examine what traits are admired most by these liberals, what accolade sates their drive in life. Quick analysis reveals the coveted "participation ...

Feral cats

On July 18 on WNEP’s “call back 16”, a woman called about feeding feral cats, stating, “I’d be damned if anyone’s going to stop me from feeding these cats.” The problem, people are not educated as to why this is wrong. It does not solve the problem as to why they are feral. ...

President Trump

I don’t agree 100 percent with everything the president says or does but for the most part, I do. I personally don’t care about what he did with these porn stars. That’s past history. They are trying to get more publicity and more money for themselves. I think we all have done some ...

Whose fake news?

Last week I listened to our nation's 5 top intelligence leaders (picked by the president) uniformly express their dire warning about continued Russian meddling in our elections. Later that same day I listened to the president tell a crowd of supporters that the Russian election meddling is a ...

Knowing the difference

It’s interesting the same group of people who want to continually remind us that they are not against legal immigration but illegal immigration fail to comprehend the difference between an illegal immigrant who is primarily a young adult coming here for economic opportunities and those who ...

A public school solution

There are a considerable number of low-achieving students in the Pennsylvania Public School System, and a substantial percentage of them are minority students that attend older, under-funded, inner city schools. The Republican-controlled Legislature’s attempt to solve this problem is the ...

Tired of working

Here are two subjects that are near and dear to my heart and probably someone else too, especially taxpayers. How much of our tax money goes to NASA? Why are we spending so much money to go to outer space? Even if you found water it would be no good. It would probably be so full of bacteria it ...

‘Real’ or ‘Fake’ labels

Mr. Donald Trump continues to rail against the Fake News Media. Just what is Fake News? To Mr. Trump it appears to be news that, even though it is true, is critical of him and his administration. I feel that the Sun-Gazette would be doing its readers a huge favor if it would label its ...

In agreement

Just finished reading Dottie Gibbon's letter ""U.S.A. pride'' July 28, 2018. Great letter, Dottie, and I agree 100% with you. All states should bring back respect for our country buy teaching the proper way of handling our flag and the proper way of displaying it in public. While the ...

Home Rule is no rule

Upon hearing and reading the comments and assumptions put forth by the leadership of the Home Rule Commission, I felt the need to respond. Having spent most of my working career as a certified CPA, the thought of eliminating the Treasurer and Controller’s Office seems extremely foolish. Those ...

Police respect

This concerns the action of two state policewomen who stopped a lady driver for speeding and then deliberately dehumanized her instead of writing her up for the offense which the lady driver admitted she was speeding because she was late for work. All my life I always held any policeman in high ...

Is history needed?

Many people may not understand or like some of my letters as my husband will tell me at times that I was raised wrong. But since growing up, I have had reality “stuffed down my throat.” When people display bad behavior, anger, hatred, stupidity by protesting, why? I have been told that, ...

A comparison

A comparison between Liberal and Conservative think – A patient goes to the dispensary with a cut finger, the Liberal puts a Band-Aid on it. The patient returns the next day with a bigger cut and the Liberal declares "We need a Bigger Bandage". The Conservative says "Instead of Band-Aid after ...

Long-term growth

Tax-free industrial parks, Keystone Opportunity Zones and tax cuts that benefit corporations and the wealthy seldom achieve their intended purpose of job creation and economic growth without increasing government debt. The recent tax cuts that benefited mainly the rich are adding nearly $2 ...

Abundantly clear

The latest proposal from the White House to roll back fuel economy standards for automobiles has made it abundantly clear that now, more than ever, is the time to re-elect Gov. Tom Wolf and Sen. Bob Casey. We must also support the upstart congressional candidacy of Marc Friedenberg, and ...

The wrong action

On May 15, Clinton Owlett won a special election to become the representative for Pennsylvania's 68 Legislative District (Tioga and part of Bradford and Potter counties). On June 5, he voted for Pennsylvania House Bill 2154, which amended oil and gas drilling regulations. The analyses of ...
