Tough job

I am referring to the job Donald Trump has as president. He will be criticized by some group or party no matter what he does. So far he has made some very prudent and profound decisions. Top of the list now are North Korea and Iran, with a crackdown on North Korea unavoidable now. The vitrolic ...

Immoral law

Some laws in this country were made and kept, even though they are reprehensible and morally outrageous. An example of this was published recently that across the United States there is no general duty to render aid to someone in distress. You don’t have the duty to rescue someone if that ...

A moment to pause

Recently, I read a letter from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission on the dire need to raise the fishing license fees to support the growing needs of their department. The letter discussed the wonderful programs and enforcement efforts that the department is currently conducting and the ...

A lot in common

For many years I climbed to the top of a mountain for exercise and enjoyment, and began to realize wild deer and gullible Democrats had a lot in common. Deer are born with an inborn instinct to roam freely within their browsing habitat and protect their lives from human threats. Democrats are ...

Fire and fury

In response to a question about the many threats that North Korea is making against the United States, President Trump said, "They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." Liberals in the main stream press have been left aghast at ...

Big steps for the Crosscutters

Since there is an allotment for the improvement for the Crosscutter’s remodeling. I would like to see steps put in the steep hill near the bike path. People coming from the Newberry area often try to take a short cut down the hill. I’ve seen several people fall going down or coming up the ...

Tweets and Nukes

For a President, tweeting and nuking take about the same amount of time. It would take any President about as much time to launch a nuclear missile as it would to send an immature tweet. More disturbing, as NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden has pointed out: "The (nuclear launch) system is ...

What a difference

I read in the paper today that a young lady was helped by the prison system in overcoming the drug problem she had. Jennifer Colon is to be commended for her change in direction. What a difference in her looks! I am so impressed! I hope other drug addicts are encouraged to do for themselves ...

Birthplace of Little League

Here we go again. Children are going back to school and college. I forgot to mention another year of stealing the bat from the statue of the Little League player from the people of Williamsport. I sure hope they get the person responsible. I know it would not be a college student because ...

A Christian nation

Is Christianity a religion or the name describing several different religions? Who settled this country in 1620? Who fought in the Revolutionary War? Who signed the "Constitution of United States". We are indeed a "Christian Nation" Tell me what countries allow more immigration than us? ...

A bright gesture

I thought I'd brighten your day with something other than the usual political diatribe that appears here every day from many of the same familiar names. Anyone who has traveled down the Golden Strip in Loyalsock Township this summer could not avoid noticing something very nice. Surrounding ...

Homestead property explanation

The “public notice” concerning the proposed amendment to the Constitution of Pennsylvania published in the Monday, July 31, 2017, edition concerns the taxation of “homestead” property. The “plain English” statement explains the change that could be possible if the amendment is ...

City employees and residency

All city employees, (except for the few) live outside the city do you think they care! Only, on pay days! break time, lunch time vacations, pay medical insurance, most make $50,000 a year with overtime! My opinion! Every employee should live in the city, if they want to benefit financially! ...

Definition of stupid

Knowing the truth seeing evidence of the truth, but still believing the lie. This fits the Democratic party. Charles Ardell South Williamsport.

Drug truths

We read story after story on the overdose of drugs in our town. Looking at the national news, the same problem is ever place. We use the abuse of drugs OD's on subscription drugs. Every doctor I have talked to says the OD's are heroin, not prescription drugs. Pennsylvania has a law that ...

Medical complications

I am disabled and have a very limited income. I have a bad heart and with that my teeth need pulled when they hurt. I called my doctors office to ask them if they could call a prescription for Amoxicillin into the pharmacy for me to take care of my dental problem. Now you need to remember when ...

Control

We don’t need gun control. We need liberal control. Charles Ardell South Williamsport

Corporate hospital

What is a corporate hospital? Don’t we have our town hospital? How big is a corporate hospital? Do corporate hospitals control pricing of services to patients? I don’t know the answer; what I know is what I see in the paper and hear on TV; another local hospital is now affiliated with X ...

How to choose

How do people choose which political party to join? Mr. Overdorf says he flipped a coin and it came up Republican. He believes others were influenced by professors and teachers. Some I know are Republican or Democrats because their family is and has been for a long time. Some who never gave a ...
