Fond memories of ice cream

I saw the article written by Mike Fogarty about his dad’s ice cream. Like Mike, I also have memories of Matt’s store, living just one block away. Like so many people you could see Hobe Beck, Charlie Ardell and me getting Saturday night ice cream. In the winters, I didn’t see much of ...

Student awards

I am writing this in hopes the Williamsport Area School District can change some of their scheduling of awards ceremonies by the end of school 2019. I have noticed, in the past, that chorus and band concerts are scheduled on different days and weeks so the families that have children of ...

Is this safety?

The other night I was watching the news as usual when one of our state legiscritters was interviewed about school safety. I thought OK, about time. I envisioned steel doors, bullet resistant glass, better locks or more armed guards. A bill was passed to allow our schools to conduct a safety ...

Grant money

Our country is $21 trillion in debt. And yet all these towns and cities continually get grant money to build projects that don’t produce any revenue to the areas. Cities get grant money to hire police officers and train them and buy police cars. So since our politicians claim that grant ...

Where the blame lies

The article on Elm Park on May 16 was misleading. The softball boosters organization did disband but only after being forced out of Elm Park by the Chamber Of Commerce and Mayor Gabriel J. Campana. We had a full schedule of events planned that would have benefitted the businesses of ...

Proud of Eagles

A person has to be extremely proud of the Philadelphia Eagles! Not only do they stand for the national anthem, but they also stand up to our current president. Did the Eagles ever agree to go to the White House? Did they renege on the visit or did they only agree to send their mascot so that ...

Double standards

Roseanne is gone, good riddance. What about the following people? For the most part they are worse than Roseanne. 1. Samantha Bee — used the c word to describe Ivanka Trump. The word was used on her show many times. 2. Bill Maher — show is on HBO, filthy foul mouth. 3. Keith ...

New governor needed

The people of Pennsylvania have made it clear that we are tired of the out of touch elites and their failed liberal policies! I believe there is only one man running for Governor who can clean up Harrisburg, and his name is Scott Wagner. Scott Wagner, now the Republican nominee for governor, ...

The correct approach

Kudos to the Trump Administration Justice Department. Finally, an administration that 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 happens ...

Short on facts

Some recent letters were short on facts. One letter states why we salute the flag. While the bravery and achievement of Sgt. Carney is admirable and deserving of the Medal of Honor, it is not the reason we salute the flag. He saved the regimental colors, not the U.S. flag. President Franklin ...

Poorly conceived

In his poorly conceived letter titled, “Canine Comparison”, David Bross said of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, “The impact of his impeccable reputation means he can do his job without the need to call attention to himself.” This shows how little liberals like Bross know about Mueller. ...

Selfless patriotism

Sometimes we get it right. Muncy School District honored alumni Linda Fisher Poulton as well as they should. A community leader who asks neither for the spotlight nor praise, Linda has helped create an 11-acre park with her husband, Bill, and the Muncy Historial Society. They engineered the ...

Misleading

I'd like to comment on Arno Vosk's letter (Demonized, May 3, 2018). Mr. Vosk would like to mislead the reading public and is working very hard doing it. He went on about President Trump's comments on immigrants being ''animals from s**t hole countries'' who are rapists, felons and such. But ...

Their flag and ours

America is the land of the free. As Betsy Ross once said, "The American flag is an enduring symbol of liberty, democracy, and justice." North Korea, on the other hand, is the land of enslavement. Whatever its purported original symbolism, the North Korean flag stands for the inhumane and ...

Cheapening christianity

Attorney General Jeff Sessions claimed that the Bible defends his and President Trump's policy of separating children from their parents at the border. He referred to Romans 13 (KJV): 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be ...

Dubious honor

Pennsylvania is known for its scenic mountains, its steel and coal industries. We can boast that the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia in 1776 and that the fictional paper company Dunder Mifflin made famous by The Office was located in Scranton. But among our multitude ...

Abhorrent

To Sen. Toomey and Rep. Marino: Failing to speak out about the current policy of separating parents and children of families attempted to enter the border indicates you support a policy hostile to the humane treatment of refugees and families. Whether those individuals are accepted into the ...

Joyous event in Liberty

A new basketball court was dedicated in the Liberty Ballpark June 17. Sharon Alexander, who spearheaded the project, spoke about her dream to have a basketball court for the kids in the community and the years of fundraising it took to realize her dream. Fran Coppage, Borough Council ...

Uncharted area

President Donald Trump wants a Space Force. We will now have real 'Space Cadets' instead of in the White House. Kim Jong-un can now call his new pal, President Trump, "President Rocket Man". The new 'Space Force' can explore the uncharted area between President Trump's ears. Charles M. ...

Consider the source

"Shame on Google," Marc Thiessen writes in his column Monday, "for treating the U.S. military as evil.” Now, I have nothing to say at this time regarding the Google or the U.S. military. However, I would like to note that Thiessen was and remains one of the United States' most enthusiastic ...
