A final word

John Adams explained, "There were two ways to conquer and enslave a country. First by Debt," and Dr. Adrian Roger, a Baptist pastor, illustrates how America's indebtedness increase so rapidly when he wrote, "You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealthy out of ...

There is a filter

The First Amendment protects free speech but as we are finding out words can inflict pain, it involves comedians and the jokes they tell about political figures. Recently three women comedians have received harsh criticism for the jokes they made. They are Michelle Wolf, Roseanne and Samantha ...

Arrogance in action

It is high school playoff baseball time once again, and several area baseball teams will be playing in the first round of states on Monday. Williamsport Area High School, South Williamsport Area High School, and Lewisburg Area High School through extreme effort and excellence on the field all ...

Democrat platform

The following is a list of some of the items one might expect to find in the Democrat Party’s political platform for the coming mid-term elections. These are based on some of their stated positions heard regularly on mainstream media outlets that are better known as the propaganda wing of the ...

Enough to survive?

The Keystone Central School Board has furloughed many teachers as a means of rightsizing. The Jersey Shore Area School Board, which is facing over a $1.4 million deficit, gave notice to 32 teachers that they were being considered for furlough but there would probably be 9 to 10 whose positions ...

Why we salute

It was the evening of July 18th, 1863, when the Colonel of the 54th Massachusetts stepped in front of his men and prepared them to storm the Confederate stronghold of Fort Wagner. The regiment had marched for two days in rain and searing heat to reach the sand walls of one of the forts ...

Where are the regulations?

Aren't there regulations against riding Bicycles on the sidewalks? I almost got run over the other day, and after saying something got cursed. Maybe the rules should be published in the paper once in a while. Gretchen Kennedy Williamsport Submitted by E-Mail

Regarding the Second Amendment

Not very many people are living today who remember when Adolph Hitler came into power in the 1930s. He ordered registration of all guns in Germany. Upon completing of registration, he ordered all to be seized. George Naugle Fairfield Township

Pray about it

Once again Nancy Pelosi stumps me with her comments! Stating that MS13 gang members are not animals but we all have a spark of divinity in each of us. Hmmm — then what about the unborn children that you support being aborted — being pro-choice as you are? I believe they too have a spark of ...

America in trouble

I came from a military family and was once very proud to be an American. But now I’m not so sure anymore. Our government is full of corrupt, lying, thieving politicians. We don’t know who we can trust anymore. We seem to have lost our freedom of speech. We are losing our jobs and technology ...

The full statement

Arno Vosk failed to mention the rest of the statement made by our President Trump regarding MS-13. He was asked about deporting some illegal immigrants and mentioned the MS-13 group specifically, as animals. John Nile Updegraff Williamsport Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

Please explain

I'd like an explanation from a municipality that utilizes a street sweeper what the logic or science is behind the aforementioned sweeper. I don't understand why stones, debris and dirt that are safely tucked against a curb are 'swept' into a lane of travel only to have the stones flipped ...

Confused, disappointed

I don’t condone the remark that Roseanne Barr made. It was in bad taste. But I don’t believe the network should take the show off the air either. Everybody is entitled to one mistake; after all, these companies spent millions of dollars to put the show on the air. Let the public ...

Troubling action

The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s recent move to ban all future wind development projects on state gamelands is troubling, as is the Delaware River Basin Commission’s move forward with a moratorium on natural gas development in parts of northeastern Pennsylvania. At a time when ...

Protecting the statue

My father, who was a mechanical/electrical genius, back in the early 1950's strategically suspended a ping-pong ball on a string in our narrow garage. This allowed my mother to nose the Buick up to this ball, which then permitted all four doors to fully open and the garage door to close. ...

Seriously?

In response to Charles M. Reeder's letter, “A spiteful purchase”, was he serious with that statement or just being sarcastic? You see, I know quite a few instances over the years where some people have either done something or bought something just out of spite and were so very glad that ...

Robbed

Between the South Williamsport School Board and the Lycoming County Commissioners, I'm being robbed. If they used a gun it would be a crime, but if you do it with taxes it's OK. Every time the school board raises taxes they say it's only between the school board and the county commissioners. ...

Fake News

May 25, 2018: In a 3:20 A. M. Tweet this morning, President Trump invoked the "emonuments" clause of the Constitution and ordered an addition to Mt. Rushmore featuring a bust of himself with the Nobel Peace Coin between his teeth on top of a miniature commemorative Mexican wall. This ...

Liberal bias

It seems that liberals like Mr. Mannello will never address the truth or anything serious. President Obama gave $800 million to a terrorist state that savages Christians and all who won’t submit to radical Islam. Liberals only see what they want, never the facts. Frank Wilson Montgomery
