Why not?

Why hasn't our president appeared on live TV to demand that Imans preach to their followers to shun ideas of jihad and violent actions against 'infidels'? If Islam was truly a 'Religion Of Peace', this should be something obvious to say. Have you ever heard him say that? I have not.But instead, ...

Why?

Why would Sen. Robert Casey vote against Kate's Law?Jon OelerWilliamsportSubmitted by E-Mail

Shame on both of them!

Senator Pat Toomey ran his first negative ad about his Democratic opponent, Katie McGinty, on the very next day following the primary election. A few days later, Katie McGinty ran her first negative ad about Pat Toomey. Since then, we have been deluged with negative ads by both of them on a ...

A history lesson

There is currently great uneasiness about events today, here and abroad. Consider events and circumstances in Germany and Italy 80, 85 years ago. Talented charismatic leaders promised redemption and "return to glory." We know how that turned out. The scapegoats then were the Jews. Today it's ...

Flip a coin

When I turned on the TV the early part of July, I noticed the office of the FBI was being asked a lot of questions. I first thought that Bonnie and Clyde came back from the grave. I knew it was not them because they used a gun. Clinton dodged another bullet. My advice before you vote, flip a ...

He will heal

Concerning Gary Varel's letter "God Help Us," how is God to help us when we turn our backs on Him, which is why we are seeing these things happening in the first place. We have turned away from Him doing what is right in man's eyes but certainly not what is right in God' eyes. Second, ...

Muncy uniqueness

The newspaper had an interesting article on Muncy.I'll bet no one knows what is really unique. Hint - it is not that it is historic. Many communities are that.It took me 50 years living here to realize. It was two years ago while an outsider attending my wife's funeral and having an hour to ...

This is wrong

I just read the letter from Ida Temple, and I agree 150 percent with her. This country was founded on freedom, freedom of speech, hard work, freedom to worship and talk about God, whenever and wherever we wanted to or not, even in politics we could do it.Now, since we've had this President in ...

How many did you say?

The media has been busy lately with stories of shootings around the country with implications that the U.S. has never had to think about these HIGH numbers of casualties.This week is the anniversary of our landing on the moon, and I, for one, will always recall the stories in our newspapers ...

A vote for freedom

Comrade Clinton is running for office just as socialist dictator Obama has nearly left our country in ruins. President Bush saved us from terrorists by taking out Hussein in Iraq while our Barack Obama was ready to set us back. Sarah Palin warned us that universal health care would lead to ...

Incorrect action

Last week there was news that our Asst. Police Chief has entered into a contract to do work for another municipality and that our mayor has approved such action.City of Williamsport Police may only be hired by and fired by City Council. So I question the legality of this move. Beyond legality, ...

Stealing

In reference to the letter of Paul Merrill on July 11, he states he has the right to remove all signs from poles as it is against the law. We were aware of that law, so we made four heavy wooden stands, attached our signs, and even got permission from local businesses before setting them on ...

More vigilance needed

The Muncy Boat Access has been closed because it is so silted up as to be useless in low water. This significantly impacts recreational boating on the river for many. Who is responsible for maintaining this landing, anyway? And do they have any plans to maintain it? Or are they content to let ...

Destroying us?

The murders in Dallas call into question if diversity is destroying what it means to be an American. It used to be that Americans, both new and old, chose to be Americans. Immigrants would embrace their ethnicity while adopting their Americanism. Everyone was proud to pledge allegiance to the ...

Taxes

Yes, raise the taxes on cigarettes, forget the tax on whisky and beer. Let the drunks keep buying and keep killing on the roads and highways. Hitting houses, going the wrong way on the beltways.Yes, I'm a smoker, but the only thing I'm going to kill is myself.I smoke outside, never in parks, so ...

The president

President Obama doesn't get it; all he talks about is more gun control, never about the real problem, which is terrorism and immigration.In fact, Democratic senators are on Capitol Hill filibustering on gun control. God help us, if we don't vote this administration out of office, we're in for ...

The time is now

Words cannot express the sorrow and shock we feel for our brothers and sisters in Dallas. The officers who lost their lives will be remembered for their courage, bravery and dedicated service to the Dallas community. We join the entire country in mourning the senseless loss of their lives.What ...

Missing facts

While the Sun-Gazette is often spot-on communicating the nuances of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania, we think there were a few critical facts missing from a recent editorial ("Gas royalty bill deserves bipartisan support in House," July 11) that are important for its readers to ...

Amused

I was amused by the letter from Alesandria Hughes. She railed against "assault weapons." As a retired federal agent, gun owner and firearms instructor, I would like to chat with her after she answers a few questions:What does she mean by "assault weapon?" The proper definition is both a ...

Assessing gun bills

Congress had 4 bills to consider about the 2nd Amendment. Two Republican and two Democratic bills were offered. It sounded as if both parties were trying for the same thing but wouldn't pass the other party's bills. So much for compromise."Terror Watch List" I'm OK with that, but then I'm not ...
