An unwitting description of Obama

A liberal writer wrote President Trump is no liar, he's a BS-er. He then stated liars try very hard to conceal their lies and are hypocrites. He was unconsciously describing President Obama, who lied about ObamaCare, the IRS scandal, the Benghazi attack, the Fast and Furious gun running ...

Faithful stewards

Growing up, I remember my mom’s shouts, “Turn off lights!” “Don’t waste tissues.” Our area didn’t recycle yet, or we would have done that, too. People couldn’t eat Lake Erie fish because of pollutants; tributary rivers burned. Bald eagles didn’t fly over my Finger Lakes ...

Township needs food truck reform

I am the owner of Eat and Run Catering in Loyalsock. I commend the city of Williamsport for taking the time to understand the Food Truck businesses in the area and coming up with what we feel are reasonable fees and ordinances to make the process of working within the city organized and ...

Rethink Sylvan Dell matter

Why would the Lycoming County Commissioners even consider a plan to use grant money, which must be matched by taxpayer money, in the amount of $325,000 to purchase 200 acres of land in Sylvan Dell to put it in to a conservation status? I am not against public parks and protecting wetlands, ...

Inaccurate portrayal

Once again, I find myself having to defend both my religion and my scriptures from inaccurate portrayals. The article written in the Religion Section in the Sun Gazette dated April 15th entitled “Which Jesus do you Want?” demeans Judaism and takes the Bible out of context. For ...

Market House Memories

The article and pictures of the Market House in the paper on March 27 brought back lots of wonderful memories and a few tears, too. My uncle, Harold E. Pysher, started his chicken and egg business and was at the curb side market in and near Market Square in the 1920’s. This continued as the ...

Change in American retail

After reading two recent letters by Gretchen Kennedy, I found both to be worthy of a rebuttal. Perhaps Ms. Kennedy should have had the opportunity to read Chamber of Commerce President Vincent Matteo’s April 2017 column in the Chamber Connection of the newspaper to get a better understanding ...

Stunned

As a retired federal agent, I was stunned to read on Page A-6 April 12, "Bradford County man sentenced in firearms theft and heroin sales." It says a Wysox man was sentenced to 77 months of imprisonment for stealing 48 firearms and for distributing heroin. The article further states 47 ...

Unfair

The Jersey Shore School Board unanimously approved eliminating the district director of operations position and added the new assistant superintendent position for the 2017 and 2018 school year. Jill Wenrich, Jersey Shore Area School District Superintendent quoted, “This will add no ...

Discerning entitlements

I am curious, how do conservatives discern who is 'truly poor' from those who 'select to be poor'? Maybe the esteem Mr. Underwood would help with an answer to that question. Speaking as a liberal, poor is poor. There is 'able' and then there is 'disable'. My recent letter was a response to a ...

Ivanka’s clothing line

In a letter to the editor April 4, the caption read, “So much for promises.” The article stated that our president wants to close the stores in our country so his daughter can sell her clothing line. What the person doesn’t realize is when an article like Trump’s daughter’s clothing ...

Who is responsible?

If I read the story correctly, Williamsport City Councilman Smith recently voted against an amendment to the city's towing ordinance exonerating victims of car theft from paying fees connected with the recovery of their vehicles. His logic was that people who are stupid enough to have their ...

The proof is in the history

Ask someone on the Left if he or she prefers an autocratic or dictatorial government and you’ll no doubt get an answer to the negative. Since their ideological beliefs are inconsistent with human nature, which asserts that individuals will act in their own self-interest, you should ask them ...

BS-er-in-Chief

I thought I'd finally figured it all by myself. So I Googled the above title and found that I was, by no stretch of the imagination, the first one to do so. I had long since confirmed in my own mind that President Trump is not a liar. You see, liars are actually concerned about the truth. ...

Better treatment needed

At the last Montoursville School District Board meeting there was once again a heated debate about what to do with the 1931 stone school. Although it would be nice to save the old school, I think much of its charm would be lost if it were surrounded by the much larger, modern ...

Flying not affordable

The building of Williamsport's new Airport Terminal is moving forward and we should be happy about it. Is the Airline sabotaging affordable travel out of IPT and thereby eventually eliminating service out of Williamsport? We arrived this week by way of State College because we could not ...

Losing support

Another protest against President Trump, this time for failing to release his income tax forms as promised during his campaign. Of course, President Trump went to Twitter and vented yet again. He wants to know who is paying these people because he won big with the Electoral College. There is ...

A call to arms for Mansfield

As I am certain you are aware, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has commissioned a comprehensive study “to ensure the 14 state-owned universities are prepared to meet the needs of students and employers in every region of the Commonwealth.” That study is now underway. ...

Remember

Remember when some of the Hollywood stars said if Mr. Trump won the election, they would leave the country. I have not heard of any of them leaving. If they do not know where to go, here is a suggestion ... the Middle East. The Middle East loves traitors, so you would fit right in. Mr. Trump ...

In agreement

To Hope Street, I agree with your letter on April 6 but do you believe that Mrs. Sandusky was really that naive? Charles W. Barlow Old Lycoming Township
