A law to support

There should be a law prohibiting utilities from placing manholes in the wheel tracks of vehicles in municipalities. And, municipalities should periodically inspect existing manholes to insure they are level. This is a law that republicans, democrats and socialists could support. William ...

Opposing decision

I am writing this letter to make Muncy Township residents aware of the proposal that has been set forth for the Muncy Township to construct a new office building. The building is proposed to be constructed on their property at 87 Quaker Church Road with plans to be underway spring of 2017. ...

Lots of questions

I want to state a couple facts, which I would like answered, by the Mayor of Williamsport. The first being, why did you want to become superintendent of Montoursville? You stated it was for your family! You need the money! You have a degree in education. Were you not a teacher in the past, ...

Accountable

Goodness gracious! The Trump supporters have worked themselves into a lather over the recount, criticizing liberals along the way. While it is true that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, president-elect Trump is saying that actually he won the popular vote because there were millions of ...

Results resentment

It seems as if the liberals and Democrats do not care about the citizens votes. They have been against the voters’ choice for president ever since Donald Trump won the Presidential Election. Everything Donald Trump said what he will do in office, the Democrats have said he will not. Jill ...

Noticeably absent

On Sunday, Anna Thompson (communications and development director at the YWCA) offered a “professional response” to social injustices that seem to be running rampant these past few weeks. I do not know in what discipline Ms. Thompson is a “professional.” Her response to these ...

The legal way

In response to Al Williams' letter  regarding immigrants to the U.S.A., I would like to point out that every legal migrant to these shores is photographed and finger printed! I am one of those immigrants, from Scotland. I did not come here to "get freebies" and live off the American ...

Disappointed

To the Williamsport Crosscutters, I am very disappointed with the new seating arrangements at Bowman Field. It was so much fun to just buy a general admission ticket and sit where you wanted so you could be with your friends. The old ownership seemed to be in touch with the hard-working men ...

American Indians

The American Indians are getting the shaft again. First, we lied to them, then we stole from them and then we annihilated two thirds of their population. Now the oil companies are trying to take their land, their sacred land, and poison their drinking water. The natives are protesting and ...

Liquor store travesty

I would like newspaper editors that don't want state-run liquor stores to say the reason is because they don't think the state should be in the business of selling liquor, let it up to private individuals, PERIOD. That is a valid argument, but to bolster your view with falsehoods such as ...

Cut taxes

e mayor of Williamsport and City Council members want to raise our taxes! I say cut taxes. Spending is the problem! Stop spending taxpayers money on the White Deer golf course, sell it! It’s a nonprofitable asset, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars. Members who want to golf will buy the ...

Bias against Trump

Abraham Lincoln famously said, "You may fool all the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all the time." The people of Pennsylvania were not fooled by the liberal lies that have showered us all for the past eight ...

Disappointed

I attended the Williamsport Crosscutters informational meeting to find out the "wonderful" changes to the stadium eliminate any general admission baseball fan! The general public is out and the reserved "clientele" is in. In my opinion, the Crosscutters are taking the fans and families out of ...

Scream-worthy

It seems that it took less time to build the Eiffel Tower than to fix our city roads. Please finish it and get it over with. Do not forget the 8-inch-deep potholes in my neighborhood that make my car’s shock absorbers scream our mayor’s name every time my car hits them. Shahin ...

Where was he?

Where was Mr. Mannello when Barack Obama was president? I didn’t read anything about him saying anything about the destruction of Syria and Lebanon. Hundreds of thousands are in misery, where is our president? Playing golf, flying to the islands? What about the murders of black people ...

The conservative way

I finished reading a letter from Mr. Chris Myers and how the big national conservative win did not generate a big conservative movement within the Lycoming County Commissioners. So disappointed because, as Mr. Myers stated, "We are as liberal tax-and-spend as ever." As someone pointed out in ...

Changing the meaning

The meanings of words are being changed to promote political ideology. “Sanctuary city” is used instead of local nullification of federal law. Would sanctuary be used if a city refused to enforce federal gun or environmental laws? Colleges are offering counseling for students ...

A state budget deal

Pennsylvania lawmakers will be facing many issues in the 2017 legislative session, but one of the most pressing issues should be to restore State funding at the 50 percent level for all public schools with average taxpayer wealth so that unfair property taxes on already overburdened taxpayers ...

Understanding needed

It is very sad that a lot of voters do not understand our election system. If they would educate themselves, pay attention and ask questions, I’m sure they would be better informed. I am a Republican, but I vote for the individual regardless of the party! For the people who do not like ...

A waste of $5 million

Amazing, Jill Stein can raise over $5 million to finance a petition to contest a failed election. (And the left laughed when Trump said the system was rigged.) Wouldn't it be money better spent to help St. Jude's Hospital, or the Wounded Warriors – real heroes,  or maybe even the United Way, ...
