Your view: In defense of the Dallas School Board

Dallas School District teachers recently picketed in front of a school board member’s place of business. Picketing a school board member’s place of business should be beneath the dignity of teachers. All school board members volunteer to serve their community without one penny of pay and do not deserve to be disrespected or embarrassed. We […]

Your view: Some songs for the inauguration

The editorial cartoon for Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017, depicting the Red Army choir singing at President Trump’s inauguration struck a chord in my memory bank of melodies. Perhaps the choir will sing the Russian navy song: “Red Sails in the Sunset” or the choir will change “Let’s All Sing Like the Birdies Sing, Tweet, Tweet, […]

Your voice: Tired of paying taxes

Your voice: Country needs to turn back to God

Reading the article last Sunday “Changes in American religion” by James A. Haught reminds me of reading Time Magazine in my high school library stating, “God is Dead.” I know you don’t “shoot the messenger,” but that was a wake-up call. Twenty-five percent of Americans have no religion. That is higher than any religion in […]

Your voice: Left-wingers showing their hypocrisy

Left-wingers showing their hypocrisy President Obama has stated: “Because when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s mind about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. Then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them.” Hillary Clinton has stated: “We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free […]

Letter to the Editor: ‘Made in PA’ program would be boon for state’s economy

Holiday shopping season is upon us, and I am encouraging my fellow Pennsylvanians to buy Pennsylvania-made products when possible. By doing so, we can help our economy.

Letter to the Editor: State’s natural gas pipeline task force wrongly keeps public at arm’s length

The state Department of Environmental Protection recently announced the release of the Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force’s draft report. There will be a 30-day comment period, which began Nov. 14; however, there will be no public hearings or meetings that would allow Pennsylvanians to speak directly to task force members and comment on this report. We […]
