The answer for city budget

Once again the people of Williamsport will see a tax increase. The photo on the Sun-Gazette's front page shows members of City Council scouring the budget looking for expense reductions. Here's a suggestion to Council, why not look in the mirror? Why not look at your "free" healthcare ...

A win-win

I am referring to the waste-to-fuel business proposing to locate in Muncy, in the Sprout Waldron building which is currently vacant. The group known as DTE held a town meeting to present information to the public. Many Muncy residents plus an organization representing the community were ...

Be patient with mayor

I am neither Republican nor Democrat and you know what that makes me. I live in Loyalsock Twp. and I read the paper every day and from what I read and see is that Dr. Mayor Campana is doing the best job from what I can remember of any past mayors, Dr. Campana is a strong, firm and a tough ...

Dangerous hunting

First off, in response to Mr. Latranyi, you mention murder versus hunting. What do you call it when someone gets shot while hunting; don't call it an accident. I'll stand a human up besides a turkey, bear, deer or any other animal and have anyone dispute which is the human. Thank God  ...

A violation

I have been reading and watching on television a lot about a group of non-believers who want the schools to stop prayer at sports events because it violates the Constitution. I have read the Constitution and nowhere does it say that people can’t worship the Lord any way we please! Our ...

Labeling citizens

When citizens voted in state referendums on gay marriage, they were called homophobic. When citizens voiced concerns over trespassers that commit murder and rape being given refuge in sanctuary cities, they were called anti-immigrants. When citizens resisted settling unscreenable Islamic ...

Accountability

After reading comments of  “happy Trump won” supporters and letters bashing the liberals, the elite, the “liberal” media and the biases of all of those mentioned, I have to say that Donald Trump supporters are really sore winners. They have been whining for the past eight years and ...

Turned off

Congratulations, Crosscutters. By replacing open bleacher seating with reserved single seats, you have eliminated minor league baseball in Williamsport as a family-friendly outing. I spent a lot of evenings in the third base bleachers. There were always lots of kids, who got restless – ...

Roaring 2016s

I read your article on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, “The Roaring 20’s.” Excellent! How about the roaring two thousand sixteens? Come to the Moose, South Williamsport, every Wednesday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. It’s the roaring hootananny. We all start off singing our military songs, Coast ...

Definition of evil

The definition of evil are people with the names H. Clinton and Obama. Many years ago, Clinton said to the Muslim brotherhood was a good group. In 2004, the FBI uncovered the Muslim brotherhood’s master plan. Expand the Muslim presence in the United States by birth rate, immigration and ...

Different perspective

It almost seems like in any discussion about President-elect Trump’s victory last month, one of the first retorts out of any Democrat/Liberal is that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by slightly more than 2.5 million votes. While it is true, it almost seems that with the frequency in ...

Fix Postal Service

This Harrisburg post office is the worst processor in the state that I’ve ever encountered in my life! Ever since our equipment was sent to there, and they refused to use it, it lies on P.O. floor in pieces and our soil softens greatly! They lost my $26 money order. They lost a birthday ...

Get help

To any person who has ever assaulted or molested a child: I am sorry that you were molested when you were younger. You may see the child you harm as being similar to the child you were when you suffered your own abusive situation. God knows. God doesn’t condone abuse. God’s love got ...

Government excelling

Government is often criticized for not being good at anything it does, but there are two areas where it excels – subsidized incompetence and black hole accounting. Phil Underwood Montoursville Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

A law to support

There should be a law prohibiting utilities from placing manholes in the wheel tracks of vehicles in municipalities. And, municipalities should periodically inspect existing manholes to insure they are level. This is a law that republicans, democrats and socialists could support. William ...

Opposing decision

I am writing this letter to make Muncy Township residents aware of the proposal that has been set forth for the Muncy Township to construct a new office building. The building is proposed to be constructed on their property at 87 Quaker Church Road with plans to be underway spring of 2017. ...

Lots of questions

I want to state a couple facts, which I would like answered, by the Mayor of Williamsport. The first being, why did you want to become superintendent of Montoursville? You stated it was for your family! You need the money! You have a degree in education. Were you not a teacher in the past, ...

Accountable

Goodness gracious! The Trump supporters have worked themselves into a lather over the recount, criticizing liberals along the way. While it is true that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, president-elect Trump is saying that actually he won the popular vote because there were millions of ...

Results resentment

It seems as if the liberals and Democrats do not care about the citizens votes. They have been against the voters’ choice for president ever since Donald Trump won the Presidential Election. Everything Donald Trump said what he will do in office, the Democrats have said he will not. Jill ...

Noticeably absent

On Sunday, Anna Thompson (communications and development director at the YWCA) offered a “professional response” to social injustices that seem to be running rampant these past few weeks. I do not know in what discipline Ms. Thompson is a “professional.” Her response to these ...
