Support for President Trump

There are millions of people who love Mr. Donald Trump, our president. I’m one of them. He has done so much for our country. Have a good day! Donna Lambert Williamsport

End of the age?

The coronavirus pandemic is the beginning of “sorrows” we will see in the future. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse mentioned in Revelation are pestilence, famine, war and religious deception. Jesus Christ spoke of this to His disciples in Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8; and Luke 21:11. Our ...

Spanish flu survivor

I would like to tell this true little story. Once upon a time my husband, George Logue, had an aunt, Mary Ring, who lived through the Spanish flu of 1918-1919. She lost her husband, her twin sister, her baby, her 8-year-old child and her 16-year-old son. Her only child left was 12-year-old ...

Going Underground

Dear local, state or any governmental official that may read this, In case you’re not aware, every American, well most, gets their hair cut, or colored, or nails done. This includes Republicans, Democrats, liberals, and any other party I’m not aware of. COVID-19 has been worldwide since ...

Getting politically senile about senility

A reader recently wrote in to deflect the increasing claims of the obvious: that Biden is displaying undeniable symptoms of senility. While Republicans “harp” on Biden, the reader insists, they weren’t bothered by Reagan. “Look at the dementia that continued after he left office.” ...

Stimulus payment

Several liberals have written, saying that Republicans and conservatives should return their stimulus payments. I wonder if they know where government gets funds to pay out. Government gets funds primarily by taxation, the income tax. That makes the stimulus payment a rebate of tax paid for ...

We will go back

In this time of isolation and not being able to come and go as we please, shop, go to movies, etc., one question comes to my mind as we start going outdoors and trying to regain a sense of normalcy. Will people remember to go to church? One day we will go about our daily routines. I am hoping ...

40 years of listening

A piece of research has been presented by “Data For Progress And The Justice Collaborative Institute” which shows that over 50 percent of Republican voters are in favor of a bill proposed by Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (a member of AOC’s “The Squad”) which, if passed, would give every ...

Strong leaders

Strong leaders make decisions and stay the course, adjusting as necessary. I am grateful to Governor Wolf for his calm communication and leadership. Like New York Governor Cuomo, he bases decisions on guidance from scientific and medical sources. The plan he has laid out won’t win total ...

Good work in tough times

I was watching the PBS Newshour last Friday. There was a segment on an Anchorage, Alaska local newspaper and the difficult times it is facing keeping its local populace up-to-date on what is happening locally and around the world during this COVID-19 virus pandemic. Given the loss of ...

It greatly saddens me

It greatly saddens me every time I read about an infant or toddler having been abused, injured or killed — many times by a boyfriend of the child’s mother. Far too many times, the reason reported for the abuse was due to the child crying. I believe that most of these abusers fail to realize ...

Memorial Day

Traditionally Memorial Day was created to honor those who fought for our country and made the ultimate sacrifice in doing so. Over the years it’s become more of a holiday, to kick- off the summer season throughout the country, opening the beaches, the parks, and many other joyful ...

Just a fact

I just want to make crystal clear to all your readers that stimulus checks did not come from the president. They came from the taxpayers of the United States and only the taxpayers! WILLIAM FISHER Watsontown Submitted via Virtual Newsroom

Stimulus

All appropriation bills originate in the House of Representatives under Nancy Pelosi. The Senate may or may not propose or concur with the bill. The President can’t spend money as he pleases. He can redirect money like he did with the wall from the military but that’s it and even there ...

Where is my daddy?

Momma, where is my daddy? He didn’t come to kiss me goodnight. I didn’t see him at all. He didn’t even turn out the light. My friend Sally cried all day at school. Her mother was a nurse. She thinks her mom may be sick, or maybe something worse. Seventy-three thousand ...

In response

This letter is in response to the “Liberal” letter of May 2. I never wanted to get into these back and forth letters, but I am tired of those promoting their agenda by using inaccuracies and half truths. First, were we clearly warned? Perhaps by the World Health Organization? They failed ...

Trump’s ‘Gene-ius’

Genes make all the difference. You’ve either got fantastic genes or you don’t. Time and again throughout his life, Donald Trump has told us he has them. From childhood on, his father drilled into him that success was genetic. According to biographer Michael D’Antonio, “Trump’s father ...

You don’t know real leadership

Real leadership was the title of a letter recently and clearly the writer needs to look up what makes a leader and what makes a tyrant. I will save him the trouble. A real leader builds bridges, a tyrant will build walls. A real leader would encourage a shared humanity by building bridges, a ...

The man is a genius

Once again our illustrious leader has proven that he is “very, very, very, smart.” How is it that our medical experts failed to consider that stopping a virus attack in the lungs can easily be accomplished by injecting a disinfectant into the lungs? And it is so easy to determine if it is ...

Charges wrongly dismissed

While reading the Sun-Gazette recently and a column regarding sentencing in Lycoming County court, I noticed that on the low end of DUI convictions the defendants were sentenced to a $1,000 fine, DUI education, drug and alcohol assessment and 50 hours of community service. So when I ran ...
