Kill the cat?

I live in Chatham Village here in McElhattan. We had a feral cat problem for several years. The feral cats caused over $800 damage to the central air system to my mobile home. My solution is to catch the cats in trips, to have them put down at my own expense. If it’s your kitty, keep your cat ...

Making sense

The following is from Walter Williams and makes a lot of sense and should be considered by all advocating greater gun control. "With greater accessibility to guns in the past, why wasn't there the kind of violence we see today, when there is much more restricted access to guns? There's ...

Reeves Parvin Building

On May 30 the Sun-Gazette Company had a nice picture on the front page of the newspaper showing the building at 301 W. Third St. On Feb. 28, 1966, I started working at Reeves Parvin Wholesale Grocery Company in the office for general office work. Inventory was done once a year. I worked 40 ...

Protest the right things

Isn’t it interesting that ISIS is running low on money now that President Obama is out of office. Isn’t it interesting that he incites blacks against whites and he and Sharpton, Holder, Jackson, Winfrey, Soros and more back the deep state and are race baiters. Should Obama and his ...

Is it really free?

When I went to school back in the ’60s to Roosevelt Jr. High, now the Williamsport Middle School. I had a teacher, Mr. Brown, we knew him as Farmer Brown because in summer he farmed and in winter he taught school. He either was a social studies or history teacher. At the start of the day he ...

Cemetery clean-up

Thank you for telling it like it is. We have photos to prove your words. If only the dead could speak! On Oct. 14, 1968, we received a letter from the Rev. Msg. Eugene Clark to announce dedication and blessing on the completion of Resurrection Cemetery. Lot 16 became ours the spring of 1969. ...

Who cares?

Who really cares that a number of pampered, multi-million dollar athletes, the Philadelphia Eagles, made it clear that only a few of their team members would attend the White House to be honored and congratulated by President Trump on behalf of the nation? Trump did the correct thing by ...

More ice cream talk

Another business to have included in your article on old time ice cream makers is Steinbacher Ice Cream, owned and operated by my father Matt Fogarty. Senior citizens will remember ice cream being sold at the store at the corner of Campbell and Park Avenue. The business was moved across the ...

Who’s responsible?

I have written letters for several years concerning how our Federal Government, State Government and County Governments are operating. It is evident that things will continue to remain as they are, because of the lack of interest or concern that the average citizen has in this day and age. I ...

Animals?

President Trump has recently caused another controversy by calling members of the vicious MS-13 gang “animals.” The back and forth over the use of the word “animal” when referring to these violent individuals raises a question about modern culture. Every public school and most private ...

In honor of Flag Day

It was the evening of July 18th, 1863 when the Colonel of the 54th Massachusetts stepped in front of his men and prepared them to storm the Confederate stronghold of Fort Wagner. The regiment had marched for two days in rain and searing heat to reach the sand walls of one of the forts defending ...

Fighting opioids

Increased awareness through community education and engagement, and strengthening of partnerships within the community represent a few of the many accomplishments of Project Bald Eagle. It was a key organization at a critical moment in time, made up of important community leaders and ...

The rule of law?

Harry Nash, I have to remind you of former dear leader Obama and his visit to Ireland? What event was happening in that country when he visited his Irish family? Here's a clue, same as the event going on in Isreal when he sent a letter against Bibi. That's right, a presidential election was ...

Derangement Syndromes

Charles Reeder got a big laugh out of a letter I wrote about TDS Trump Derangement Syndrome. He wrote about all the different syndromes the left is suffering from. He actually added to my letter which really shows that liberalism is a disorder. Charles Ardell South Williamsport

Canine comparison

President Trump reminds me of a Chihuahua. He spends his days yapping to build himself up in the eyes of his followers. He stays close to his base the way a Chihuahua bravely roams its fenced-in yard. And like a Chihuahua, it is easy to see that the noise is just to compensate for a lack of ...

Immigration

Our American government should make a military deal with Mexico and Central America. We have troops all over the world in places where they are not needed. Why not send these military forces down into Mexico and Central America to straighten out these corrupt governments in these countries and ...

Peaceful solution

Regarding the letter “Middle East Catastrophe.” The writer’s biased and short-sighted opinion of our administration and Israel is off base and detrimental to a peace settlement in Middle East. Iran’s warped slogan for decades is “Death to United States and Israel”, making Iran an ...

Defined by one man’s wishes

Donald Trump tweeted recently, "I have the absolute right to pardon myself." If the president is constitutionally permitted to pardon himself, then the president is above the law. If the president (or any individual) is above the law, then the law is futile. If the law is futile, then the ...

Debate question

It is my belief that a future debate between Governor Wolf and Scott Wagner the following question should be asked: As governor, would you support a State Constitution Amendment that would allow State, County and Local Government and School Districts to generate revenue with a ...

Not enough opportunity

Having checked job boards and newspapers, it is evident Greater Williamsport has only low paid, menial vacancies for job seekers. This is unacceptable and the city leaders must be held accountable for not attracting and retaining more employers to the area. There is nothing here to keep our ...
