Letters

Vote by mail

A writer questioned the evidence in my Aug. 5 letter on the safe record of mail-in voting. In the same edition, Mr. Troisi once again wrote warning of the “chaos” of vote by mail. For Oregon, my evidence came from OregonVotes.org, the state’s official election website. Incidentally, the ...

Response to ‘Disastrous response’

A recent letter writer stated: “The United States now leads the world in total coronavirus cases and deaths.” I say the United States trails the world in total cases and deaths by 75 percent and 80 percent respectively. You can check this with data from the WHO dated Aug. 28. Example: ...

Defund Williamsport Police Department

In the recent wave of uprisings against racist police violence, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the chaos and outrage. We’ve seen “secret” police forces abduct protesters into unmarked vans, a literal tear gas tornado, and at least 25 Americans killed over their opposition to police ...

Crucial election

The wait is finally over. We now know who President Trump will be running against in the Nov. 3 Presidential election. Possibly the most far left, radical person in the Democratic Party. A person who believes in open borders; Medicare for all, including illegals; the Green New Deal; defunding ...

Mail-in ballot

Recently, a Letter to the Editor was published that failed to include the entire story regarding mail in ballots. The writer was correct regarding the fact that over 28 million mail in ballots were unaccounted for between 2012 and 2018. However, they primarily represent uncast ballots and is ...

Fallen

Another “good” guy has been indicted on charges stemming from an online fundraising scheme. This would be Steve Bannon. The fundraiser in the scheme is the one for raising funds for the border wall. Bannon says he is not guilty. Jerry Falwell Jr. has found himself embroiled in a sex ...

A local Republican perspective

I am a lifelong Republican and resident of the Susquehanna Valley. I was honored to be the Republican nominee for Congress in the former PA-6 Congressional District and I am proud to have served as chairman of the Northumberland County Republican Committee. Since casting my first vote in 1988, ...

What’s in a name?

This article may surprise many who know me or know about me. There were three boys and three girls born in our family and we spent our childhood days attending the Martin One Room Grade School located on Martins dirt road which runs parallel with a mile of the Spook Hollow in Piatt Township in ...

School sports

I think it’s really pathetic when parents risk the health of their children so they can enjoy the sports their own children play. The way it sounds to me is play your football, basketball, hockey and wrestling and if you get COVID-19 we’ll do what we need to save your life. Seems like the ...

Michael Barone’s malarkey

The editorial page of the Aug. 18 edition of the Sun-Gazette includes malarkey from Michael Barone. Like most conservatives, he gives lots of opinions but few facts to back it up. In the second paragraph he describes Kamala Harris “whose own presidential campaign showed her chronically ...

Catholics’ moral obligations in voting

For Catholics, responsible citizenship, which includes voting, is very important. However, certain critical issues have not been addressed or explained very well to Catholic voters in this election season. Although many Catholics are not single-issue voters, please be advised that a political ...

Future of Social Security

As a candidate, Donald Trump promised to make no cuts to Social Security. As president, every budget he has proposed has contained large cuts. Trump’s 2021 budget slashes $24 billion over the next decade from Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income. Collectively, ...

Great letters

A shout out to Frank Wilson, George Lockett and Mike Stanisky. Three real good conservative letters in the paper. Charles Ardell Williamsport

Importance of true leadership

As we are approaching the Fall of 2020, with so many plans and approaches to how the schools and workplaces will be adapting to COVID-19 regulations to operate safely and at the same time provide a productive and positive work-school environment for their employees, associates, and ...

American conspiracy

It is my opinion that the latest Democratic convention is and was a set up for a national rip off. I predict that if Biden is elected, he will only serve a very short time, and then resign, giving health the reason. This would allow Kamala Harris to become president. It is my opinion that this ...

Consumed

Why is it that all of those against Trump are so consumed that they never give a thought to how the radical Democrats will ruin this country? They are so overtaken by their feelings that they can’t see and gather the facts. If you think it’s so bad with Trump, just wait for radical ...

College and COVID

Since the colleges have declared that the students must obey the rules that the college sets up for the COVID-19, I hope that our colleges will post separate notices on all student housing doors with the rules on. There are students across from where I live and they congregate on the porch ...

Dirty tricks, again

President Trump decries mail-in voting. He claims there will be much fraud. I think I just uncovered an attempt at it by the National Republican Committee no less. Recently, my incoming USPS mail included a piece addressed to “Doris Weiner or Current Resident” at my home address in ...

The facts

Which world leader ordered his military to invade other countries, bomb London, separate family members, imprison and execute people, especially those of a particular religion? Adolf Hitler. Which American president authorized the invasion of the tiny, defenseless island of Grenada? Ronald ...

Russian interference

The Senate Report on Interference proves that Russia sought to infiltrate and interfere with the 2016 election through online propaganda and through their newly developed “Hack and Leak” method. Then candidate Donald Trump welcomed, encouraged, and even celebrated Russia’s illegal ...
