Papa Don’s

The New York Times has documented how, for decades, Donald Trump's father bailed him out of one financial debacle after another. In light of this reporting, the Trump Organization can be more accurately branded as "Papa Don's." Tim Mannello Williamsport Submitted by E-Mail

Great viewpoint

Ida M. Temple once again wroe a great letter in the Sept. 25, edition of the Sun Gazette and I for one could not have agreed with her more. As she had quoted in her third paragraph, Judge Kavanaugh came across as someone who would work with the Constitution and the laws of the land, whether ...

Crying Wolf

“There is a choice of supporting public education, but it comes with the cost of the taxes and the possibility of losing a home for some.” Given the recent attack ads coming from Gov. Tom Wolf, one would think Scott Wagner spoke those words. In fact, this quotation came from a May 2015 ...

Painful to watch

I always thought there was some sense of decency within the institution of the United States Supreme Court. It is painful to see how this institution, through the actions of the Senate, has now become another political football. For example, Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland, the Chief ...

A different picture

I read with interest Henry Hopper’s recent letter regarding Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. I wish Mr. Hopper would have sourced his information as articles I read regarding Bezos painted quite a different picture. I don’t doubt Mr. Hopper’s information about Bezos being cheap when ...

Trump hate

I understand why the creatures in the washington swamp hate President Trump. He is trying to pull the plug on their environment. Their corruption and lavish lifestyles will cease to exist. Not all the creatures are in th swamp. There are snakes living in our society spewing their anti-Trump ...

No winners

I was able to watch the hearings for Judge Kavanaugh. It look like a slam dunk until Sen. Feinstein produced a letter at the last minute that question Judge Kavanaugh's worthiness to be on the Supreme Court. Insanity ensued after that, no one knew what was going on. The Republicans and Judge ...

Waiting for an answer

The Williamsport Area School District plans to hire a principal for 10th grade. My information comes from reading Sun-Gazette reporting from the recent school board meeting. Does this mean the school district has a principal for each and every grade? To me, this means this district has hired ...

Children must learn about rules

Regarding the recent dress code protesting at an area school, parents need to stop letting little Johnny or Jane dictate what they want! Make the children learn there are rules in life whether we like them or not. We had dress codes and our parents managed to dress us properly. We went to ...

Bloviators

People like letter writer H.C. Nash are the bloviators. They don’t listen to what President Trump says. They just spout off their own inward thinking. The latest temper tantrum by Mr. Nash should have had President Obama on it, not President Trump. Wake up, all bloviators, and learn how to ...

Fair-minded Dems, rescue your party

Apparently Sen. Cory Booker aka "Spartacus," has very little respect for his hard-left base, believing that his theatrics are the only way to reach their low IQ. level. Unfortunately, he's probably correct. However, fair- minded Democrats should be able to see through this charade. Several ...

South Side questions

What is the quantity of grass required to trigger a fine in South Williamsport? One blade, 10 square feet, or 5 pounds? That is the problem with ordinances from clippings to sewer laterals it is all subjective. Is the person in question liked or a pal of a council person? That may be the ...

Regarding bald eagles

In reading the 2017 December Pennsylvania Game News, it has an article on bald eagles getting lead poison from entrails and carcasses. The article states of twelve bald eagles brought to wild life rehabilitation centers, only one survived after intensive treatment. It goes on to say to bury the ...

Impeachment flu

The Democrats have a case of impeachment flu. They want to impeach President Trump. They wanted to impeach Judge Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court if they win the House. They also want open borders, canceling of the tax cuts and elimination of ICE. The Democrats have no plans to help the ...

The economy, credit and blame

This is for my fellow Democrats and non-Trump supporters. President Obama will be given his due when the economy fails, which it will. He and the Democrats will receive all of the blame. President Trump, like the Republicans who support him, will gladly take all of the credit but none of the ...

Elect Wagner

We need to elect Scott Wagner for governor Nov. 6. Gov. Wolf’s priorities are not Pennsylvania’s priorities. I believe he is out of step with our needs and values. Wolf has focused on a radical, Planned Parenthood agenda. He says he is concerned about children, but he believes babies ...

Senate Bill 76

Scott Wagner, Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor, cosponsored and still supports Senate Bill 76. This will would replace school district property taxes by increasing the state’s personal income tax rate from 3.07 percent to 4.34 percent and by increasing the sales tax rate from ...

New Left

The new American Left want a new world order. Trump haters want this country divided and taken over. They are agents of hatred against the United States and Democracy, not just President Trump. They are for division of this country and are anti-free speech, except their own vile voices. They ...

Cry me a river

Last week, while reading the letters to the editors, I noticed one that caught my eye. I just have to respond to the retired school teacher. I did factory work until the early 1990s. I don’t come close to your amount, but if it was, I would be happy. Cry me a river! Rich Newman Williamsport

Check alcohol usage

Instead of investigating Brett Kavanaugh's various attempts to have a sex life, the judiciary committee might want to take a look at his relationship with alcohol before they add him to the Supreme Court. Each accuser to date has mentioned that he was very drunk when his inappropriate behavior ...
