Restock the swamp

Well, the election of all elections is over and the Democrats are to be congratulated for an election well stolen, in my opinion. They are jumping for joy and dancing in the streets (better than their last effort of looting, rioting, and property destruction) for their election of the new Swamp ...

Voter fraud?

I wonder why there was no voter fraud in the states Trump won. KEN DAUBER Cogan Station Submitted via Virtual Newsroom

Madam President

Has President-elect Kamala Harris picked her vice president yet? If Mr. Joe Biden really thinks the liberal, progressive “squad” is going to let him stay in office more than six months to a year, he had better think it over again. The liberal, socialist, and progressives are planning to ...

No riots

We have new president and no statues were pulled down or businesses looted. Oh, wait, Republicans and Trump supporters don’t do that. So, welcome to millionaire Joe Biden. Welcome back cheaply made Chinese products. Goodbye U.S. jobs. MARK BERGREN Williamsport Submitted via Virtual ...

It’s time to heal and move forward

Now that the 2020 election is over, most Americans thoughts are about moving ahead to a better future, that is more positive, more open, and with honest communications from our elected officials at every level of our Government. This past year has been one of uneasiness and challenge for most ...

An open letter to the President of the United States

Dear President Trump, I am a Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and I was devastated when she lost to you. I’m just being up front. I didn’t agree with your wall, your plans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, or your positions on climate change. I did not think you had the ...

Self defense

First let me state, that I’m a veteran who served in a combat zone (Infantry) during the Vietnam War. I was not a “Desk Jockey.” As such I take offense to the liberal left constantly attempting to push their false interpolation of the Second Amendment onto the public, in hopes, that if ...

Curb kicked

Pennsylvania punts Putin’s puppet. Corrupt conman curb kicked! MARK NICHOLAS Muncy Submitted via Virtual Newsroom

Presidential trivia

Who was the last Republican president to balance a federal government budget? President Eisenhower did it three times: 1956, 1957 and 60 years ago in 1960. Who was the Democratic president to balance a federal government budget? President Clinton balanced the federal budget in 2000, 20 years ...

Recycling

Did you know that if you take those huge Trump banners and lay them end to end, they might reach from Newberry to the county landfill? MICHAEL F. MODAY Williamsport Submitted via Virtual Newsroom

In the Oct. 17 Pennsylvania Bulletin, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced its intention to approve the construction of a 1,240 MW electric power plant that would use natural gas and diesel fuel in Renovo. Yearly emissions from the facility would include up to ...

PASSHE chancellor’s end game

I am Dr. Eddie Severn, associate professor of music at Lock Haven University and artistic director of the annual Lock Haven Jazz and Arts on Main Street festival. I am one of two faculty members who received retrenchment letters terminating our employment at Lock Haven University at the end of ...

Employee parking

Seems that the city employees have no respect for the disabled either. Their vehicles have been spotted parked in areas made for the disabled. I guess disabled people who drive don’t have the pleasure of being able to park in handicapped parking spots. GRETCHEN ...

Don’t worry, be happy

I’m a Trumper, kinda worried about Biden winning. But I try to always look on the bright side. If Biden wins, my gas and oil prices will go up, but the control of oil prices will go back to the Middle East so they can afford to kill each other. Trumps got most of our troops out of there, so ...

Pondering the outcome

It is Halloween and I am thinking about the upcoming election instead of the festivities of the holiday. There will not be much to do this year because of COVID-19. The last rush by candidates for votes is in high gear. So far there is a high turnout in the early voting states. There is an ...

Spreading false information

In the mid- to late 1940s, when I attended St. Peter’s Elementary School in Mt. Carmel, the Felician Sisters, who taught there, all loved to tell a story based on an old Jewish parable, “A Sack Full of Feathers.” It made an indelible impression on my young mind that remains vivid to this ...

Honoring our veterans

Today, Nov. 11, as in the past, we remember and honor our military veterans recognizing their sacrifices and commitments our nation’s heroes made to safe guard and protect our country’s values and principals. Our fallen veterans, living veterans, and wounded warriors must never be ...

We must stop this insanity

Many people seem to be firmly decided on the best presidential candidate to vote for in this election. Others may have some angst over which man’s philosophies would be best to lead the country. For me, it comes down to one thing. I hold my 7-month-old grandson, Dean, in my arms and kiss ...

Stop Armenia’s war crimes against civilians

On Oct. 28, Armenian armed forces launched a targeted missile attack on residential areas and business district in Azerbaijan’s city of Barda. Armenia used dozens of Smerch missiles with cluster munitions which resulted in the killing of 21 civilians and injuring over 60. This follows ...

Be grateful

Life is full of many kinds of loss. Through fire, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and politics. Be grateful for what you have in America. It can all be taken away in an instant. Katherine Archer Slaybaugh Shipe Old Lycoming Township
