Name for the new Montoursville High School

I read recently the Montoursville School Board is deciding who to dedicate the new Montoursville High School to. This is my suggestion: Dedicated to the Montoursville School Board Members who made the new school decision, to the hard working Montoursville taxpayers and to the many retired ...

YMCA history

Thinking back to those Fabulous Fifties, the place to be on Friday evenings was “Handy-Haven” in the basement of the YMCA. We danced to all the current records — no doubt on 45’s. Everyone dressed nicely — no fights — no arguments or misbehaving of any kind. Just in case ...

Congratulations

June 23, 2018, will be remembered as one date that changed one man’s life forever. He has set high standards for himself, as well as strong family support, values, work ethics and faith in God. Though I have never met him and was unable to attend the party and celebration, I am thrilled ...

Correct approach

Kudos to the Trump administration Justice Department. Finally, an administration seriously enforces our immigration laws. So, children are being separated from their parents at the border and snowflake Democrats are up in arms with undue commentary and accusations. This action is nothing ...

Firework safety

With the Fourth of July rapidly approaching, Phantom Fireworks would like to remind our friends and customers that some pets adversely react to the lights and noise of fireworks. With a little extra effort, our pets can be spared the trauma they sometimes experience from fireworks. Phantom ...

Making America good

Recently I came across this quote popularly attributed to a perceptive 19th century French commentator on America, Alexis de Tocqueville: "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers-and it was not there… in her fertile fields and ...

Immigration defined

The immigration issue is easy to understand and can be summed-up in a few points. Firstly, all the media coverage and attention the issue is getting at present is faux outrage! It is entirely by design in order to distract from the damning information revealed in the IG report and related ...

Disconnected

In the recent letter "Their flag and ours", the letter writer takes exception to President Trump and Kim Jong Un standing in front of a row of the flags of the two countries. He states, "It is hard to imagine a sight more repulsively discordant than one that projects the remotest equivalence ...

ehind the badmouthing

So, the Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau is upset because President Trump wants to protect the interest of the USA by making sure this Country can supply its own steel production. This means providing less jobs for Canada while paying for their steel to be sent here, as the steel companies in ...

Anecdotes

Anecdotes that might interest any American with a genuine interest in U.S. history, criminology, and the judicial system: A court-appointed psychiatrist who testified in Dallas during the trial of Oswald-killer Jack Ruby in early 1964 testified that the nightclub owner had carried out his ...

Immigration woes

Not long ago, going through my mother’s things, I came across this: “Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if it means the well being of a person or animal is at stake. Society punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other ...

Protecting our country

President Trump caved to the noisy liberal Demoncrats. Are they happy now? Not quite. Now they are weeping and gnashing their teeth regarding zero tolerance illegal immigration. Can this president do anything right? The law is the law. Entering this country without benefit of legal protocol is ...

A solution for our children

I can 't believe all the people crying out for the "poor immigrant children" when we have our own statistics no one seems to care about: Adelphoi, a premier provider of foster care services in Southwestern Pennsylvania, has been placing foster kids. Over 15,000 children in Pennsylvania are in ...

We need to change political discourse

Our discourse is sinking lower. The Zero-Tolerance policy that separated children from families goes against everything that built this country and made it great. We have lost our way as leaders enact policies that show disrespect for the humanity of people. That said, heckling spokespeople of ...

Reagan understood

Ronald Reagan best understood the liberals psychic state from his Hollywood acquaintances and California experience as governor. "The trouble with our liberal friends, is not that they're ignorant, it's just so much they know isn't true," he said. This could apply to the liberal writer who ...

Unrealistic

Jersey Shore School District laid off a dozen teachers because they do n’t have enough money in their school budget to pay their salaries (wages.) But I didn’t see the school district cut out any of the sports programs. I guess it doesn’t matter if a person is dumb or illiterate as ...

Children used for political points

As usual, all the lemmings are lining up and spewing their version of facts regarding the separation of children from their illegal immigrant parents when captured. There is no policy to separate children from parents. The administration has adopted a zero-tolerance policy as it pertains to ...

Eagles on target

Championship teams of all sports have been going to the White House since 1806. Now whether you care or not, it is still a long lasting tradition letting people from all walks of life, even if some of them are pampered millionaires, get a chance to visit and be honored by the president. ...

A comparison

So, the DOJ Inspector General found no "documented" evidence that the FBI's treatment of the Hillary Clinton "matter" was driven by political bias. I would like to point out that Henry II never issued any written orders to any of his four knights. Vincent J Dandini Trout Run Submitted ...

Harvard’s anti-Asian-American microaggression

The Harvard University admissions process appears to be an ongoing microaggression against Asian-Americans. A group called Students for Fair Admissions is suing the school for alleged racial discrimination and has filed documents in federal court making a persuasive case, based on data ...
