Presidential Post-Mortem

After a lifetime of defying gravity to maintain his public image, President Trump now finds himself chained to a rock he cannot move. The 2020 election has proved impervious to his histrionics. Perhaps Trump was channeling the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, who said, “Do not go gentle into that ...

Only in America

Joe Biden should be going to the jailhouse, in my opinion. Instead, he’s going to the White House. Joe Biden’s son and brother are living in the lap of luxury. What happened to Hunter Biden’s laptop? I believe it was loaded with information about their dealings with communist China. What ...

Tax-exempt properties

I am writing in response to the Nov. 22 letter, “Tax-exempt properties.” The writer used the example the ETHNOS 360 (formerly New tribes) missionary training facility at Larryville. I grew up on a farm whose property adjoined the New Tribes site. I had the opportunity of meeting some ...

Education at a crossroads

As Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 cases continue to rise, there has been more discussion regarding the need to return to full remote learning in certain areas of the state. Earlier this year, the Departments of Health and Education created a Community Transmission Table, which gives ...

Facebook/censorship

Let me tell you something, Facebook have gotten way out of control with its censorship policy. I don’t agree with the fact that they banned you for posting stuff about a political party that you agree with or think should be elected. I also don’t like the fact that Facebook banned you for ...

Veteran thanks

Thank you goes to the Geisinger Group in Jersey Shore for their Veterans meal they served on the 12th of November and the wonderful cards made by children of this area for the appreciation of our service. Also thanks goes to the businesses in Williamsport who gave us a piece of their work in ...

Safe and safe

Today is National Seat Belt Day. The world’s first seat belt law was put in place in 1970, in the state of Victoria, Australia, making the wearing of a seat belt compulsory for drivers and front-seat passengers. There were no regulations for seat belt performance in the United States until ...

Mayor

I don’t hear or read much from the Mayor. Does anyone know what he is doing to enhance Williamsport? KATHLEEN SPOTTS Williamsport Submitted via Virtual Newsroom

Tax status of medical corporations

I was interested to see the property tax forgiveness for Pennsylvania College of Technology, Lycoming College and UPMC buildings in Williamsport. At a time when cities are strapped for funds while still being expected to keep public schools funded through property taxes, somewhere in excess of ...

Please wear a mask

I am a healthcare worker at a skilled nursing facility and I get so upset seeing people out in the communities without wearing their mask. Our facility has been in lockdown — no families, friends and visitors are allowed in the facility. This has been going on since March. We have tried our ...

President-elect

Joe Biden is not the President-elect. Mr Biden has not been certified as the winner of the election. The windsongs of the main stream media notwithstanding, they do not declare the actual winner of the election; that is done when the individual states have certified the election results for ...

Accolades to voters

Accolades to the voters of America! In the quietness of your home or in the privacy of the voting booth, you contemplated our nation’s future, and with a determined hand you inked in the circle that said “no more” to the impeached fraudster’s lies. You rejected his racism, you rebuffed ...

Tax-exempt properties

Interesting to learn that over 2,000 properties in Lycoming County are exempt from paying property taxes. Can you do another article indicating just why some properties are tax exempt? As an example, there is an organization of Bible thumpers near Salladasburg that has a property tax ...

Let the healing begin

I see that the healing wanted by Biden supporters has begun. One of the first steps is attacking Trump supporters who are eating dinner after the MAGA March. It just warms my heart knowing we now have the “compassionate” left in the White House. Remember, over 72 million of us voted for ...

Harrisburg to Williamsport mail

Once again (third month in a row) a package I ordered (from same company, same product) has already spent four days coming from Harrisburg to Williamsport (still waiting)! It was quicker from origin to Harrisburg — only took two days Kentucky to PA. This is a constant failure on ...

Last outrage

In the 2016 Presidential election, Hillary Clinton lost Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania by a combined 77,000 votes, leading to her defeat. What did Hillary Clinton do next? Did she claim voter fraud? No. Did she demand recounts? No. The very next morning, she called Trump to concede the ...

Get back to governing

The recent move by Republican leaders in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives to launch hearings into the process undertaken in Pennsylvania’s 2020 election is merely a delay tactic. Although billed as an effort to assure voters that the election was handled freely and fairly, the ...

Personal tragedy

It is terrible what a personal tragedy the pandemic has been for President Donald J. Trump. First he is infected with the coronavirus, from which he thankfully has recovered. Then on Nov. 3 he lost his job. Nobody likes to be a loser. And if that wasn’t terrible enough, on Jan. 20, 2021, he ...

Vote count

The voters of Pennsylvania deserve to have their legal votes count. Turning a blind eye to the fraudulent actions of voting rights is appalling. There needs to be an investigation into people turning away poll watchers and police refusing to enforce judges’ orders. What has happened to the ...

Dead — count

In the Nov.17 Letters to the Editor, a writer asked why there was no voter fraud in the states Trump won? Answer — there was. It just so happens that the Democrats failed to find enough dead people, to vote, in order to overcome the tremendous support for President Trump in those states, ...
