For her peace of mind

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is in bad physical shape but she keeps bouncing back. She is a strong person, both physically and mentally, and is very astute in Constitutional law. It is a shame she has to work from home and miss non-decision hearings in the Supreme Court. She deserves to enjoy the rest ...

Oh, come on

You know as well as I know, in Broward County, Florida, if Democrats would have won the two key races, there would not have been any reason to recount ballots. Get real. Katherine Archer-Slaybaugh Shipe Old Lycoming Township

Wondering

I wonder how many Lycoming College students wish the school had addressed the student parking issue before eliminating parking for construction of the wonderful new gateway building. Let’s see a show of hands!!! Jan Cholin Trout Run Submitted by E-Mail

Nothing ‘curious’

In a recent letter entitled "Curious" the writer cited that Republicans have long touted the notion that the government does not create jobs, that is to say real jobs, not those of the CCC and WPA type. But now Republicans are taking credit for the new job opportunities which have sprung up ...

Good luck, Nancy

Is anybody else tired of seeing Nancy Pelosi’s face on your TV screen? She thinks she is entitled to be re-elected as Speaker of the House. All she will do is try to put forward the same worn out, socialist programs that she failed to pass numerous times in the past. The day after the ...

Afraid of immigrants?

After reading many recent Letters to the Editor, it appears that our local, vocal, yokel Republicans are afraid of allowing immigrants into our country. While I can understand their concerns, I wonder if they realize that these immigrants and asylum seekers can and would be drafted! I doubt ...

There’s a gun problem?

We don’t have a gun problem. We have a spiritual problem. We have had guns ever since this nation was conceived and born. If it weren’t for guns, we wouldn’t have the precious freedom that we enjoy. Guns are a tool just like the many other tools that we use. Gathering food, protecting ...

Outsider opinions

Countries all over the world mock our “elections” (including many Americans). People are insulting, negative, and at times cruel. The one thing that President Trump is — different and successful — is due to the two years he’s been our commander and chief. We realize he is not a ...

In violation

On Thursday morning at 7:20 a.m., Nov. 1, 2018, I was standing at the corner of the intersection of Allegheny and Bridge streets in Jersey Shore, on my way to the Weis Store. The lights were green for Allegheny Street and red for Bridge Street. I looked straight ahead, side to side, and ...

An explanation

Dear Trump supporters, let me try to explain this. You may think that going after your political opponents is a good thing and I'm not saying that people that have done something wrong shouldn't be held accountable but so far Hillary has not been proven to have done anything wrong, like ...

No excuse

On Thanksgiving day, myself, my wife, her sister and her sister's husband went for a Thanksgiving buffet. Let me tell you, it was so very disappointing. First, the add said, "salad bar", which turned out to be a serving tray that had on it what looked like it came out from under a wet lawn ...

Missing pieces

The man in the White House claims everything he does is to “make America great again.” He is accomplishing this by insulting citizens who disagree with him, preferring confrontation to co-operation, denigrating the judiciary; the press, breaking agreements with and insulting our friends ...

Delusions

Charles Reeder suffers from the same delusion that most liberals suffer from with regards to the purpose of Government according to his letter "Curious" November 18. The only jobs government can create is government jobs, which of course are paid for by the tax payers, and does not improve the ...

A great idea for Trump

Here is another great idea for Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump. Rather than have our troops sitting on the Mexican border preparing to shoot asylum seeking immigrants, why not send them to California. The Army could swap their weapons for rakes and brooms. There are only 33 million acres of ...

Our divided house

What is happening to our country, these United States? I have never in my 92 years witnessed so much hate. I believe most people will agree that 95 percent of all news is political – Democrats against Republicans and vice versa. Do we need another world war and millions of deaths to bring ...

Should PHEAA be abolished?

During the pass 55 years, the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency has been awarding public taxpayer funds to students with financial need, based on family income, to attend a community college, a public four-year university or a private higher education institution of their choice. ...

A denier’s case

The most vilified Green House Gas (GHG) is carbon dioxide (CO2), as this benign gas is an unavoidable product of fossil fuel combustion. Activists seem to not know that human production of CO2 is less than 5 percent of that contributed by nature and, regardless, the primary GHG in our ...

Speaking up for Christian beliefs

I am mad that we Christians are allowing non-Christians to dictate what can and cannot be displayed...They don't want to see crosses nor anything Christian-related. Let me tell them I don't care, you can look the other way. I am a Christian who believes there is a God in Heaven. I believe in ...

Happy Thanksgiving?

It's always a treat to come home for this holiday. As much as I enjoy the charms of my hometown, flying in and out of Williamsport continues to be a challenge. This year, to add to the annual excitement, we learned that American Airlines, the only commercial airline that flies to ...

Sharing jail cells?

Just found out that Ivanka Trump has used her personal e-mails for government business. Sound familiar? Lock her up! Lock her up! Wouldn't it be ironic if Ivanka and Hillary end up sharing a jail cell. Jay D. Myers Hughesville Submitted by Virtual Newsroom
