Questions

In Sunday’s edition of your paper, I read about a museum closing. All because of our county commissioner who harassed them constantly. This was all because of a confederate flag. A museum is for old things from the past. It’s called history! Why should some people be allowed to pick and ...

Improvement project working

Nice job UGI/PNG, it looks like your "Mosquito Breeding Project" at the intersection of Church St. and E. 2nd Ave. in South Williamsport is off to a good start. I realize you wouldn't have been able to do this without the cooperation of PennDOT, and it just goes to show what these ...

Record this

I have two things to discuss today. I read June 9 that the City Council is considering changing the way our local government works. I’m in favor of that, providing that everyone is careful in preparation of it. I also agree that all areas should be represented in forming this alliance. I ...

Our educational system

As Americans we all are aware of the fact that the United States educational system does not do a very good job. Like clockwork, studies show that America’s students lag behind their peers in pretty much every industrialized nation. We hear about shocking statistics about the percentage of ...

Cynical

I see the Lycoming County Commissioners are campaigning for a $5 sticker on every car in the county so I feel obliged to opine and provide some personal experience. In 1984 I moved to Loudoun County, Virginia and registered my cars which included a County Sticker. At that time, the County ...

Disintegration

The shooting of Representative Steve Scalise, House Majority Whip and Republican from Louisiana, demonstrates just how close our nation is to disintegration. This morning’s events in Alexandria should pull every American up short and have us ask ourselves ‘Is this the America I want for my ...

The museum’s choice

Several letters have been printed in regard to the removal of certain statues and flags of the Confederacy down south. You cannot erase history because a flag or a statue was removed. The statues were removed, not torn down, nor were they destroyed. The South is not going to forget the Civil ...

Gratitude for editorial

Thank you for your editorial on June 9th explaining the reasons why President Trump pulled out of the climate control agreement, which makes a lot of sense. Another reason is America is subsidized the cost of defense of other countries in another letter in today’s paper. Maybe if the ...

Definitions

Entitlement: The legal right to something. Entitled: The idea that one has a right to something. I had an interesting conversation with a gentleman on social service programs like SNAP, Section 8 housing, etc. It's my position that I don't mind helping the disabled or those who are down ...

Anger

“Anger is an acid that can do no more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” - Mark Twain. Don’t dig a moat. Build a bridge. God gives — Satan takes. St. Augustine said, “He who sings prays twice.” Jean E. Delk Williamsport

Sunbury

I can see why the families want to see this settled, but my goodness, don’t the Sunbury police have anything better to do! Tearing apart that person’s yard and house. OMG, try solving the recent crimes. Donna J. Lambert South Williamsport

Questions

Recently in your paper, I read about a museum closing. All because of our county commissioner who harassed them constantly. This was all because of a confederate flag. A museum is for old things from the past. It’s called history! Why should some people be allowed to pick and choose what ...

What is in a name

Is this truly what we as American citizens have been reduced to? Constantly having to listen to verbal abuse, whining, crying, carrying on, like spoiled brats because they lost the election. Directing it to our president — okay, okay, you lost, get over it! Is this what it is going to ...

We were created to create

My memories of raising my son and loving an irreplaceable man are the roses of the autumn of my life. I have been truly blessed. Jean E. Delk Williamsport

Gratitude for editorial

Thank you for your editorial on June 9th explaining the reasons why the president pulled out of the climate control agreement, which makes a lot of sense. Another reason is that America has subsidized the cost of defense of other countries, as detailed in another letter in today’s paper. ...

An interesting year

1919 was an interesting year of Bradford County in that we did not have a parade for the returning troops from World War One. That was the same year that 20+ newspapers and trade journals reported that a meteorite viewed from Washington, D.C. to Towanda's reservoir on Old Plank Road. It ...

Take a stand

If you don’t take a stand, can you stand to fall? It’s quite a drop — the distance from Heaven to Hell. Hades, now that is a bottomless pit. Time out of time the sands of time run into the Dead Sea. And then the dead do see. The Lord knelt and wrote in the evershifting sand, our sins to ...

Disappointed

I help seniors and their families regarding their burdens covering basic needs (e.g. food, clothing, shelter) while managing the costs of medical care. Most seniors I work with are living on extremely fixed incomes with modest (if any) savings. These are citizens who worked their entire lives ...

False leadership

Another grand display of affection for a nation's leader. The many who feel blessed to serve the leader while the leader sits proudly taking it all in regally. That type of devotion is not for us mere mortals, it is only reserved for the one, the leader. North Korea can take lessons on how it ...

Centers must be preserved

I write today in response to an article published in The Lock Haven Express on June 10 titled “County takes stand on business development.” Clinton County commissioners are correct. The Small Business Development Center is a critical, must-preserve service for the community. I ...
