Still amazing people

On Sept. 22 at approximately 11:30 a.m., a person or persons in a white pick-up truck ran over my dog on Lycoming Creek Road. This person never stopped to see if he was OK or if there was anything they could do, they just left the scene as quickly as possible.I wanted to say that other ...

How does it help?

As a football fan as well as an American, I have been keeping my thoughts to myself about the protests during the National Anthem. But, since Mr. Ardell broke the ice, I find myself wanting to throw my two cents in.As an American, I have to acknowledge their rights to protest.However, how in ...

Setting record straight

Stand and deliver

Let me start by saying that I have a lot of respect for good teachers. They do a very important job and have a big impact on our children.Having said that, the Moments of Motherhood section in the Lifestyle section on September 25th had all of the old cliches about teachers.The first and most ...

Misplaced dissent

Our country was founded on the freedom to protest.The right to protest was only one of many freedoms contained in our Bill of Rights. Freedom of speech does not give any individual the right to degrade or insult another person by using swear words or threatening them.The right to vote in this ...

Before you vote

The Democratic Party is now sending material regarding Donald Trump's name calling of women to registered Republicans. Where is the outrage when entertainers or sports stars call women names or do bad things to them? If you fit into one of Mr. Trump's categories, it is none of his business as ...

Plant trees

From all the information I've gotten from the TV and questions I've had in questionnaires mailed to me by the representatives, I have a feeling that in the near future we'll all have to pay a carbon tax.If people would just plant trees, that would remedy the situation. Trees take in CO2 and ...

Trump vs. Clinton

Donald Trump has all the answers, but they're the wrong ones. He has slogans of jargon, distorted language with no specifics of a positive direction or the common good of American. Mr. Trump gives only an illusion, consisting of rhetoric and exaggerated language. ("Sugar-coated words.") But ...

Disgusted

As a World War II vet, I'm appalled at some of our own athletes not standing at attention when our national anthem is being played. I'm also appalled at Black Lives Matter association changing their slogan to dead cops now.I believe the athletes that don't stand during the anthem and the ones ...

Disrespect!

Colin Kaperneck and Brandon Marshall, you should be ashamed of yourselves. There is no place in this world you could have achieved the kind of lifestyle you're leading. You could always leave and go to another country and see how you make out. This country is not perfect, but we sure as hell ...

Sunshines

What a ray of sunshine it was to read two letters to the editor that was in Sept. 6 paper that had nothing to do about politics, guns, drugs, shootings, who put the blame on who and whatever else. I guess it's good to keep all that above stuff in mind, but it's even better when you hear some ...

100 years and counting

The Sun-Gazette has been paying tribute to the 100th anniversary of the National Park System by featuring works of artist/photographer Mark Nance. The natural beauty of American has never been exhibited more graphically than by this magnificent assembly.For more than 40 years, I have had the ...

Double standard

Regarding the letter "Citizen Trump" from Sept. 14, a writer points that Donald Trump had a grandfather who came to America in 1885 and entered the country illegally. I guess this Democratic Spin-doctor is telling the voters that Trump shouldn't speak up about illegals because his grandfather ...

Just wondering why?

Punishing Hillary

In response to Ken Robertson's letter to the editor on Sept. 9, "Saving Hillary," my response is Hillary hasn't suffered enough. What about the parents of the slain soldiers abroad. They are suffering. If you don't want her to suffer at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., don't vote for her. She should be ...

We don’t need her

I just read the article from Paul Rinker entitled "Memory Lapses." He wrote about Hillary Clinton not remembering anything that occurred during her time as Secretary of State and that would make her either hopelessly stupid, a victim of dementia or the biggest lying criminal even to seek public ...
