Ivanka’s clothing line

In a letter to the editor April 4, the caption read, “So much for promises.” The article stated that our president wants to close the stores in our country so his daughter can sell her clothing line. What the person doesn’t realize is when an article like Trump’s daughter’s clothing ...

Who is responsible?

If I read the story correctly, Williamsport City Councilman Smith recently voted against an amendment to the city's towing ordinance exonerating victims of car theft from paying fees connected with the recovery of their vehicles. His logic was that people who are stupid enough to have their ...

The proof is in the history

Ask someone on the Left if he or she prefers an autocratic or dictatorial government and you’ll no doubt get an answer to the negative. Since their ideological beliefs are inconsistent with human nature, which asserts that individuals will act in their own self-interest, you should ask them ...

BS-er-in-Chief

I thought I'd finally figured it all by myself. So I Googled the above title and found that I was, by no stretch of the imagination, the first one to do so. I had long since confirmed in my own mind that President Trump is not a liar. You see, liars are actually concerned about the truth. ...

Better treatment needed

At the last Montoursville School District Board meeting there was once again a heated debate about what to do with the 1931 stone school. Although it would be nice to save the old school, I think much of its charm would be lost if it were surrounded by the much larger, modern ...

Flying not affordable

The building of Williamsport's new Airport Terminal is moving forward and we should be happy about it. Is the Airline sabotaging affordable travel out of IPT and thereby eventually eliminating service out of Williamsport? We arrived this week by way of State College because we could not ...

Losing support

Another protest against President Trump, this time for failing to release his income tax forms as promised during his campaign. Of course, President Trump went to Twitter and vented yet again. He wants to know who is paying these people because he won big with the Electoral College. There is ...

A call to arms for Mansfield

As I am certain you are aware, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has commissioned a comprehensive study “to ensure the 14 state-owned universities are prepared to meet the needs of students and employers in every region of the Commonwealth.” That study is now underway. ...

Remember

Remember when some of the Hollywood stars said if Mr. Trump won the election, they would leave the country. I have not heard of any of them leaving. If they do not know where to go, here is a suggestion ... the Middle East. The Middle East loves traitors, so you would fit right in. Mr. Trump ...

In agreement

To Hope Street, I agree with your letter on April 6 but do you believe that Mrs. Sandusky was really that naive? Charles W. Barlow Old Lycoming Township

Governor Wolf

I called our Pennsylvania Gov. Wolf a jerk but that was not nice of me. I guess he tries but this thing about the lottery really upsets me. I also forgot to mention he wanted to merge together tobacco and alcohol. Donna J. Lambert South Williamsport

A shameful vote

I observed 20+ wild turkeys on the Internet following their leaders tail as they walked in a circle around a dead cat in Boston. It's reported turkeys fear cats because they can kill their young, and that's why they were walking around the corpse to see if it could present a threat to them. ...

Trump’s no Reagan

In response to the letter “Trump and Reagan”, I agree. President Trump is not a President Reagan. President Reagan had an amicable personality that allowed him to be endeared by both friend and foe alike. President Trump’s personality is a bit harsh, endearing him to his followers with ...

What can be done?

I agree with Leland Shipe on not being able to hear what is being said in the movies at the theater and on DVD's. I read as well that they are putting out the sound effects over the words and that they want you to hear this. I constantly ask my younger friend and he says he didn't hear this ...

Important issue left out

In a recent letter entitled “A Christian Response”, a group suggested what might be a Christian’s response to complex social issues confronting the world (protection of the environment, public education, immigration, and religious tolerance). An attempt was made to support their ...

Take protesting elsewhere

I read the article in the April 11 edition about the protesters who showed up at Congressman Tom Marino’s office. How ridiculous! Where have these people been for the past six years Marino has been in office? Have any of you even called or stopped by before now? Marino has consistently voted ...

‘Peer Review’

President Donald Trump has expressed his views about the allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by Bill O'Reillly: "I think he's a person I know well – he is a good person. I don't think Bill did anything wrong." Tim Mannello Williamsport Submitted by E-Mail

The false narrative

The latest political narrative coming from the Democrats, their political pundits and followers is that nearly every policy introduced by President Trump will “hurt the very people who voted for him”. It doesn’t matter if it was the latest healthcare bill, his trade policies, or the ...

Deep concerns

Thirty-eight years ago last week— March 28, 1979 — disaster struck at 4 a.m. at the Three Mile Island (TMI) nuclear power plant in central Pennsylvania after its cooling system failed. It remains the worst nuclear accident in American history. We woke up to the horror and fear that ...

Minimum wage help

A recent letter claims that minimum wage is to blame for people not getting jobs especially the young. The solution for that is to end minimum wage and get government out of the way of businesses being able to hire and pay people what they are worth. The usual anti-government arguments were ...
