Saving our society

Eighty years ago in Germany, a political party began its ascent to power by controlling nearly all facets of life. They eliminated political opposition. Racism became the central theme. Youth were indoctrinated, then used as tools to serve the will of the party. Books, arts, and everything ...

Hurricane Harvey and gas

Most Americans take pride in themselves for being patriotic, in helping out our fellow Americans, when a national emergency or a tragedy hits. But not the CEOs of the major oil companies. They just can’t pass up a chance to be greedy and stick it to the poor working people. I guess ...

Little League coverage

Little League in South Williamsport is over. WKSB 102.7 Kiss FM radio station did a great job on the Little League coverage. My question is how come the Lock Haven radio station WBQV 92.1 covered the Little League games in South Williamsport? Eugene Moore McElhattan

The Middle East

The mess in the middle east is and was caused by Obama and Clinton. Millions displaced, suffering, dead and wounded, beheaded, tortured. They pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan and left countries open to butchers, ISIS and over 90 other terrorist groups who now threaten and carry out mass ...

Clouding the truth

A lot has been said for quite awhile about the pros and cons of building a wall on the border between Mexico and the USA. Much of it is just noise on both sides with rhetoric that clouds the reality of the truth of the matter – the USA is a sovereign nation with the right and more importantly ...

Fed up

From time to time, we are treated to a letter from a Social Security recipient or a retired government worker, complaining that they either didn't receive a cost of living increase or that it was too small. I believe that these complaints are misguided and miss the big picture. While there is ...

Answering questions

would like to answer the questions from Mr. DeVaul's letter dated August 16. His first Question, "Is Christianity a religion or the name describing several different religions?" Christianity is a religion based on the person and the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its belief and practices. ...

Singapore utopia?

In a recent letter to the editor, a writer stated that "The best model today to look at is Singapore," hailing it as a model of capitalism which disdains government involvement and making it the antithesis of the USA, a "welfare queen" archetype. Really? In truth, Singapore's government ...

What Lee would think

Does anyone know that the soldiers of the Confederacy did not like being equated with Union soldiers nor did their families? They are even separated in death in Arlington Cemetery. They are the heroes of the South, the Confederacy not of the United States of America. Their history is of ...

God’s fairness versus man’s

If the argument about progressive versus flat taxes is made on the basis of economic reckoning that takes into account only absolute numbers of dollars paid by the rich compared to others, flat taxes may appear to be fairer than progressive taxes. According to this line of argument, the only ...

Volatile tension

The events and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia are tragic, reprehensible, and embarrassing. They represent the divisions and strife that entangle our society. Yet, even after the killing and injuries are over, we continue to cast blame on who or what has created this cultural fusion of ...

Seats overdue at Lamade Hill

For many years now during the Little League World Series children of all ages climb up and slide down the very steep hill at Lamade Stadium. Safety has also been taking a slide, because Little League officials never have discourage this injury prone activity. Every year dozens of children, ...

New low in groundbreakings

I am always amused when I see stories of ceremonial groundbreakings, ribbon cuttings and the like, in the newspaper. The Williamsport Municipal Airport Authority's board of directors got their picture in the paper again on Sept. 1. This time they've sunk to a new low. They didn't break any ...

China is the bigger threat

I don’t know why everyone is worried about North Korea. That nut of a dictator doesn’t want to die anymore than you do. If Washington and the press shut up about him he will go away. China is a bigger threat. Jon Oeler Williamsport Submitted by E-Mail

Figuring Democrats out

1. Democrats have chosen the enemies of Israel over Israel 2. Rigged elections over Democracy 3. Communism over Capitalism 4. Criminals over police 5. Globalists over America 6. Wall Street over Main Street 7. Illegals over citizens 8. Seems like Kim Kong Un over President ...

Do not dismantle

I am writing because I read that State Representative Kerry Benninghoff wants to close the centers for the disabled. I’m not sure he knows anything about the centers nor do I think he has visited one. I have visited Selinsgrove Center and worked in Danville State Hospital for quite a ...

Kudos to buses

I want to congratulate our River Valley Transit System for their enormous contribution to the success of Little League Week in Williamsport! The careful planning and forethought in scheduling transportation for thousands of riders and allowing for unforeseen circumstances is phenomenal. And ...

Accomplishments?

He bullies. He rants, he raves, he flip-flops, he foments, he flame-throws, he blames. He puffs, he swells, he insults, he name-calls. He golfs. He campaigns like a crazed zealot and "governs" from a pinched heart and conflicted psyche. He acts like a thrashing great white shark out of ...
