Letters

Unfair criticism

Another letter from a disgruntled Republican about Democrats. Again we are called 'snowflakes' and should protest against black-on-black crime. This disgruntled fellow wanted to know if former President Obama and his henchmen should be called names for killing thousands with poisonous gas. He ...

Putting protest in perspective

In the July 10th Sun-Gazette, Romuald K. Andraka of Trout Run criticized the media for not reporting that the owner of the Red Hen restaurant organized a protest mob to scream at White House Sara Huckabee Sanders after she left for a nearby restaurant. A quick search of reputable news ...

Meat vs. Matzo Balls

"The separation of families at the border is perfectly fine. After all, we do the same thing to families of convicted criminals in our country all the time." Actually NO, we do NOT do the same thing to asylum-seeking refugees and illegal immigrants as we do to prisoners in the United Sates. ...

False lightning

After listening to the Democratic Senate leader, Chuck Schumer voice his objection to any possible candidate that President Trump would pick for the Supreme Court, I am reminded of a quote by Mark Twain who said: "Using the right word and almost the right word is the difference between ...

Bad message

My husband and I are Nittany Lion Club members who love Penn State and football. My husband spent years as an orthopedic surgeon at Penn State. That’s why we are shocked and dismayed to see Koch Industries advertising on the JumboTron at every football game. Our nation is under attack from ...

A curious shift

“As it turns out, character does matter. You can’t run a family, let alone a country, without it. How foolish to believe that a person who lacks honesty and moral integrity is qualified to lead a nation and the world! Nevertheless, our people continue to say that the President is doing a ...

Our protection

Make America Great Again is impossible unless patriotic citizens Take America Back Again, not from the British, but from radical Democrats from the Obama administration. They have corrupted the hierarchy in the State, NSA, CIA, Justice, and FBI agencies by violating the rule of law, the ...

A renaissance?

I'm sure most of us recall from World History class that the Renaissance was a time when Europe slowly emerged from the Dark Ages by embracing a new found love for art, architecture, literature, music, science, philosophy, nature and humanity. In short, an Age of Enlightenment. I'm afraid I ...

A theory not for everyone

Donald Trump is a great president. Donald Trump is a great president! Donald Trump is a great president! This is the theory our president uses. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. Doesn't work for me. Jay D. Myers Hughesville Submitted by Virtual Newsroom

A hypocritical celebration for some

I bet those football players who dissed the flag enjoyed the 4th of July celebration honoring those who fought and died for our freedom! Gretchen Kennedy Williamsport Submitted by E-Mail

Stop the belittling

I read the letters to the editor regularly but rarely feel the need to write and share my thoughts. However, over the past few months, I have felt that the discourse has taken a negative tone. It appears that many writers use disparaging language toward those of an opposite viewpoint, ...

Curiosity

For whatever it's worth, I've concluded (tentatively) that one third of smart phone addicts are well-rounded, curious instrumentalists, one third are escapists for whom "ordinary" daily life will always be insufferable, and one third are simply idiotic. Another 10 percent (forgive my math) ...

Now I understand why

In response to Tim Mannello’s letter on June 24th, I have not understood how for 70 years we could not come to peace with North Korea. No country has cost more American lives than Japan or Germany. Today they are friends and allies of ours. Tim gave me the answer along with the mainstream ...

Flight 800

It is the 21st year since the students of Montoursville and their chaperones were lost. They will always be remembered and their loss will forever be felt in our hearts. Katherine Archer Slaybaugh Shipe Old Lycoming

What’s happening?

What is going on in America today? All these shootings and killings. Are they people in this country all going kill crazy? We need to go back to the way things used to be. Put God back in government and schools and respect and discipline. We had a lot less crime back at that time. People worked ...

Unfair

I recently participated in a Teletown Hall with Garth Everett. My question to him was “Why haven’t the State Retirees received a COLA Raise” ? We have not had a COLA raise in 15 years. His response to me come in a letter. The letter said, “Increasing benefits for existing ...

Fuss unwarranted

Such fuss over the champion football team not going to the White House for what essentially is nothing more than a photo op. Why would any team want to go after how President Trump and his administration has been bad mouthing football and the players all season long? Charles M. ...

The rest of the story

You’ve heard how the progressive owner of the Red Hen, a Lexington, Va., restaurant, kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on June 22 at the request of gay employees. But did you know that after Mrs. Sanders’ party went to a nearby eatery, the Red Hen owner organized ...

Stop mistreating animals

I would like to believe that it was an accident, but my guess is it was probably intentional. Someone shot an orange mother cat in the front leg at my mother's in Liberty. She has four kittens but thankfully they are old enough now to eat on their own. We don't know where mama cat came from, ...

Disrespect at all-time high

Disrespect for other people in the United States is at all time high. Is it any wonder, when our president constantly spurts his rude and crude tweets and speeches to world leaders, our allies, other nationalities, fellow politicians and ordinary citizens? Throw Maxine Waters in the mix and ...
