Snub Trump Joe

Well now that I have your attention, I am referring to Joe Gibbs Racing, not Joe Biden. In 2017, J.G. Racing with Martin Truex Jr. won the Nascar championship driving a Toyota Camry. At the White House outdoor awards ceremony, Mr. Trump never put the T.V. cameras on the car or mentioned that it ...

A balancing act

We must offer relief from the high tax burden to our city residents. Many people who work in the city live in other places but take the benefits of our city. They use our transportation system, drive on roads that are maintained by our streets department and rely on our police services. It ...

$2 million taxpayers

Muncy Township Supervisors unanimously approved financing $2 million for the renovation of the municipal building for “extensive plumbing, electrical and mechanical updates,” “a garage” and “adding to the structure to create space on the already existing first floor” to the 1996 ...

Santa is real

I came across a magazine article in a doctor’s office waiting room. The couple interviewed in the article said that they told their kids that there is no such thing as Santa Claus because they didn’t want to lie to the kids. I thought, “What a shame.” Allowing kids to believe in Santa ...

Dear Donna

I read your letter in the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, wanting a new double door, black Toyota pickup truck for Christmas. You were not as good as you could have been in 2019, as a result, I did not feel I could fulfill your request. It is suggested in 2020 you try a little harder and I will ...

Predictions

Rest assured, there will be called indictments next year and forward. This being the result of private lawyers in Washington, D.C., probing for information from records of Hillary Clinton relative to her email scandal, Benghazi fiasco, the Clinton Foundation and the Mueller Russian collusion ...

Climate change

Geologists tell us that the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old. During that time, there have been five Ice Ages totaling about 500 million years in duration. An Ice Age is when global temperatures are relatively cold, there are large ice sheets, alpine glaciers and the polar caps are covered ...

Bettering the environment

Having recently toured our Lycoming County landfill and recycling facilities, learning of a local company with nationwide and global ties, commitment to sustainability (recycling, reusing, composting) is rewarding. Bimbo Bakeries USA (Grupo) will be bettering the environment and reducing ...

Volunteer with Moms Demand Action

On Monday, Dec. 2, hundreds of volunteers with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America gathered in Washington, D.C., at the Supreme Court to support the lower courts’ decision on a case being heard that day. New York State Rifle and Pistol vs. the City of New York is the first case in ...

Bloomberg and Chief Gallagher

Michael Bloomberg has entered the Democrat primary race. It seems he could have a lock on the Nanny State vote. We would be protected from butter, trans fats, salt, and the Big Gulp among other hazards. We would not be protected so much from criminals. He has apologized for his stop-and-frisk ...

Health insurance for all

Health issuance for the entire population of the United States by 2020 — What will this do for my vanishing Medicare funding? Over the years fees required for my senior care have slowly been eroded somewhere in our nation’s capital. Ask your current health care provider and elected federal ...

Some people never get it

Some people never get it. They prefer to write high-falutin’ articles, letters or columns showing off their high IQs. They may have a higher education than me, and like to show it off. My education was high school and the school of hard knocks. They will never ask why Mexico doesn’t help ...

Quid pro quo

I’m writing this letter in response to your front page article on Nov. 21, “Trump Directed Quid Pro Quo.” This, Dear Editor, is fake news! It seems to me you listened to Adam Shiff, NBC, and CNN, then rushed to press before you got the true story. Shame on you! Is the Sun-Gazette turning ...

The rest of the story

I have never written a letter to the editor before but after reading your headline on Nov. 21 about Donald Trump and the current witch hunt hearings, I need to. The headline saying our president directed a quid pro quo is an absolute lie! The AP reporter apparently failed to listen to the rest ...

Free public education

Did you know that the U.S. Constitution does not give responsibility for free public education to the Federal Government? That’s right! That responsibility rests with the Pennsylvania State Government. However, the state Department of Education delegates some of its power to local school ...

Colin Kaepernick

While watching the recent news coverage on Colin Kaepernick, it occurred to me that maybe the public has been too hasty in the judgment on why he actually chose to kneel during the playing of our National Anthem rather than stand. Standing during the National Anthem is our custom as ...

In agreement

I agree with Craig Gallagher with his letter from Nov. 16, “Draft registration.” The government should bring back the draft. Maybe it would teach the kids of this day some respect for others, since you can get in trouble for spanking your kids from an early age. That’s what’s wrong with ...

Sandy Hook Service Project

The Williamsport chapter of Moms Demand Action is holding a service project to honor the lives taken at Sandy Hook in 2012. We are collecting new early reader/elementary-level books and children’s hats, gloves and scarves. The items collected will benefit Family Promise of Lycoming County, ...

Vaping: The epidemic that continues to grow

Vaping. Is it better than cigarettes? Is it safe? As of right now, there is not a lot of evidence about vaping and the long-term effects it can have on a person’s health. In better words, vaping is still an unclear subject in the medical world. But, in recent news, vaping has taken the lives ...

Just a thought

The Democrats have turned this country upside down and sideways trying to find dirt on President Trump. I think they should examine his rectum and his prostate, also analyze his feces and urine. Maybe that will satisfy them. Charles Ardell South Williamsport
