Blame game

Let’s do a rerun for a moment! About two months ago, the USCDC was aware of the pandemic in China. The Chinese kept this secret from the world for months and didn’t allow us to assist for several weeks! The World Health Organization stated on Jan. 14: “Don’t worry because China says ...

Finally

Harvey Weinstein has terrorized many young women trying to get a start in the film industry far too long. It is sad that this happens to anyone. Too many sad individuals prey on innocent people, men and women, because their own lives leave much to be desired. Finally, as hard and painful as ...

California dreaming

I do not understand why people on the right think California seceding is a good idea. I know that there is a huge political divide in the United States but to actual believe we need to oust specific states to widen the divide even more is ridiculous. Sounds more like envy than getting rid of ...

Understanding Leadership

On March 5, President Trump, when asked if he or his administration bore any responsibility for the government’s tardy response to the Coronavirus, resorted to blaming President Obama for regulations that he claimed made it difficult for his administration to make a viable test kit available ...

Cold hearted

With the rise of the far-right and the radical right, we not only have been experiencing the growth of “the survival-of-the-fittest” social Darwinist ideology in much of today’s national Republican Party featuring their desire to not only cut and reduce spending on all of the federal ...

Facts without fear

The numbers below are taken from official WHO reports as of 6 a.m. March 23, as well as other sources and can easily be verified by anyone wishing to find them. I have rounded them to make them easier to remember. China — Population: 1,600,000,000; COVID Deaths, 3,300 South Korea — ...

Tale of two bills

Legislative trickery has made a comeback. Monday, Senator McConnell urged passage of a bill whose language is being written by lobbyists and withheld from the public. Master of the arcane, McConnell is using a placeholder shell bill while the majority write legislative text without minority ...

Is American patriotism an illusion?

Every sporting event I have attended the past several decades always commenced with spectators standing, removing hats, and singing the National Anthem. This was a tribute not only to those men and women that had served in one of the military branches but also for those who were currently ...

Socialism?

A short time back before this nasty coronavirus ordeal came about and Bernie was still running for president, almost every day in the letters to the editor there was some Trump nut writing in about how terrible and bad any form of socialism was. If we could look back and find the names of these ...

Litterbugs

I’m in agreement with Christine Manny regarding the litter on the walkway on both sides of the river. Dog walkers usually carry a plastic bag, so if you want to eat or drink along the way, carry a plastic bag for your trash. The same goes for the people who drop bags of trash on the Maynard ...

Stupid?

I have a question for our local socialist, communist, progressive sympathizers: How stupid do you think we all are? I read the “Letters to the Editor” and statements like “Too little, too late” accusing President Trump of not acting in time to offset the spread of the “Chinese ...

Trust

Sometimes we weather our storms by what we reason that things should be done, either by experience or our own judgement. How many times do we really use the wisdom of God (His Word) to the full measure of what it was originally made for. This guide was made for our use for today too as much as ...

Safety issues created by Route 220 safety project

When representatives from the state Department of Transportation held the latest meeting regarding the safety improvements for the Route 220 corridor through Woodward Township, it was clearly evident they had no intention of taking questions from the residents regarding any concerns on the ...

Blood, Sweat, and Tears

Do we really understand how Jesus suffered throughout the crucifixion? Jesus being God, the Triune entity made Him aware of what would take place in all His sufferings. Two words “sweat” and “drop” are described in Luke 22:44. “And being in anguish He prayed more earnestly and His ...

District plans large tax increase

Not again — every year the school taxes go up. Not just one district in the state but almost every district in the state is in the same boat. Maybe it is time to look outside the box. Every district has a superintendent, then an assistant to the assistant. This happens in every part of the ...

Dogs

Walking on the Market Street Bridge, I came upon a real mess. On the walkway was dog’s doo-doo. Now why couldn’t he or she have cleaned it up, right? I live in Williamsport where a lot of people walk their dogs. I have seen people stop and clean their mess up. Never have I seen a mess on ...

Charen’s right on

Mona Charen’s latest editorial in the Sun-Gazette was revealing to say the least. Here is a conservative Republican who is just a bit right of Genghis Kahn and she’s holding Trump’s feet to the fire. In fact, she’s probably one of the few syndicated Republicans who has openly bewailed ...

Democratic Party Dementia

Now that both the Mueller investigation and the House impeachment are over, and the election season is in full gear, we’re disappointed to still find letters in the Sun-Gazette continuing to blast Trump with their hyper-ventilating hatred. For example, Trump was recently called “an ...

School property taxes

Once again, the Montoursville School Board is raising school property taxes. This is 14 out of 15 years that an increase has been imposed. An increase done with no regard for the seniors in our community, nor for the families with children who are trying to buy a home, feed the kids and clothe ...

Giving America away

Open borders to flood the country with illegal immigrants, giving them free health care, drivers licenses, and, of course, the right to vote. This is totally unfair and a great betrayal to all American citizens. Lies, deceit, socialism, and betrayal seem to be the icing on the cake of the ...
