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

Put God first

If God and prayers were put back into schools and colleges, there wouldn’t be any shootings. Prayers and Bible readings should be a daily routine. God Bless America. Carol Logue Montoursville

Trump’s flag stance correct

Finally, President Trump says something I agree with! He stated that if the sports professional players don't to stand for the flag that they should leave the country. What they have is a job, (which I might add many in our country do not have) and protests have no place during time that ...

Righting a wrong

When my wife and myself approached Resurrection Cemetery outside of Montoursville we noticed that the main entrance had grass about 16" high. We thought how tranquil with the grass waving in the breeze. When we got inside of the main cemetery the grass was so high you could not even see the ...

Sadness, frustration

Reading the letter May 11, “The situation,” by Kristine Reilly, I agree whole-heartedly. Soon all Americans will need passports to fly domestic flights and even traveling from state to state. Enhanced licenses also will be needed. A passport is good for 10 years. Ironically, our families ...

Demonized

Immigrants are being demonized. In the words of our president they are "animals" from "s-t hole countries." They are rapists, felons wanting nothing more than to sponge off hard-working Americans. Today's immigrants and refugees are no different from every white American's ancestors. The Irish ...

Disgusting depiction

Armed Forces Day is a day of celebration, unification, parades, picnics, fly-overs and remembrances conducted at various sites throughout the country. The Sun Gazette editorial page chose to honor our members of the armed services by denigrating one of our military heroes, publishing a ...

Double standard

Michelle Malkin wrote in her column, "Marginalizing Melania Trump", there are two Americas demonstrated by how First Lady Melania Trump is treated by the media. She ends the column with this statement, "When leftists can't win on their ideas, they resort to marginalizing the messengers of ...

Fooling enough people

On May 22, CBS correspondent Leslie Stahl asked President Trump why he so relentlessly attacks and insults the press. The President's s response was vintage Trump. His answer reveals his characteristic life-long habit of destroying anyone who says or does anything he doesn't like. "'You know ...

What happened?

That's a question asked about what has changed in the past 50 years to get to where we are today with kids mass-killing their peers. What's happened in the past 50 years is that we've told people that they don't have to do anything to be entitled to a trophy. They are entitled to success ...

The American Way

Most telemarketers give me the impression that they are about 8 eggs shy of a dozen. The average citizen of this country could at any time be arrested for disturbing the peace or annoying a neighbor for such phone call behavior. Why don’t our state or federal government put a stop to the ...

Self-promotion

President Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal” was published in 1987. Reportedly, sales were bolstered by Trump hotels and casinos purchasing the book, 4-5,000 copies at a time. The title could have been “The Art of Self Promotion.” His future book could assume a variety of ...

To the stupid

There was an article in the Sun-Gazette, May 12, 2018, Saturday, hot off the press or news media. Out of Washington, DC on “Trump open to negotiations with Calif.” On auto gas mileage. Now remember when the last Rep. Presidents were. The gas climbed to 3 something, then President Obama got ...

His record?

In its May 16 report on the Primary Election, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette quotes Congressman Tom Marino saying, "I ran on my record." Of course, incumbents should run on their records. But one can't help but wonder exactly which part of Marino's record he ran on. Was it his role in ...

Irony

What irony. Women in Ireland are finally getting more control over their bodies while women in American are losing their control. Alison Hopper Williamsport Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

Emergency responders: We can’t honor them enough

The Lycoming, Tioga and Sullivan counties Regional EMS Appreciation Banquet was held last week. Lots of first responders to emergencies were honored. John Hoover, a Tioga County emergency medical technician, was honored for rescuing a drowning teenager and saving a choking infant. In both ...

Don’t put up with it

I've lived in other cities where they have torn down properties when the owners did not comply with the city in fixing up their buildings. I'm not sure what those cities have to go through to do that, but I see no reason why this city has to put up with absentee landlords who choose to ...

Second Amendment saving grace

Regarding letter writer David Bross not being able to think of one use of guns to come through a government, wow. How about the American revolution? If we didn't have guns, just how far do you think this would have gone? That is why our founding fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment! By the ...
