I see the water company has been out making us new potholes. Thank God. I’ve been getting so sick and tired of the old ones.

My grandma always said that God made libraries so that people didn’t have any excuse to be stupid.

The public library is important and the game that Mr. Dunkle is playing by taking funding away is pathetic and unprofessional.

I would like to make a comment on all our emergency crews that are going up and down past my house right now. Do you realize a paid fire company could not do anything as well as our free services that we get from these wonderful people that do it for nothing? Nothing, mind you. And they’re out there sweating and fighting to take care of business and I just want to thank everybody for the wonderful job they do.

Steve Dunkle is using his position as a county commissioner to carry out his own personal vendetta against people and organizations he dislikes. This behavior has to cease.

Did anybody read the (column) that Pat Buchanan wrote in The Sentinel? It’s very interesting. I hope they don’t start thinking about Mount Rushmore.

I was wondering if someone on The Sentinel sports staff could tell me if the PIAA does random drug testing in high school sports.

Editor’s note: While the use of performance-enhancing drugs is prohibited by the PIAA, there is no mandate to test athletes. Many schools opt to conduct random testing independently.

I love the idea of spending the day with your mother. It doesn’t have to be on Mother’s Day, but just spend the day with her, even if it’s with a daughter or a son. It would be so lovely.

The Sentinel has had a few articles in recently about people going through problems and asking for donations to help them. I was happy to send what I thought were pretty generous donations to help out. I think people who are receiving donations from strangers should take a few minutes and send out a thank-you note to show their appreciation to those who helped in their time of need. Just seems like good manners.

I have been following the Mifflin County Commissioners meeting in The Sentinel and I was wondering why there’s been no reference to giving back the money to the owners for the rental ordinance that was canceled in January. It was said that the money would be given back. That was in January and I haven’t seen nor heard any more about it.

Editor’s note: The rental properties ordinance was enacted by Lewistown Borough Council, not the Mifflin County Commissioners. Council voted in January to suspend enforcement of the ordinance, but has not voted to repeal the measure.

My comment was incorrectly printed. It should say “I’ve seen the squirrel without a tail and I call it ‘bunny'” because that’s what I thought it was.

Brown Township Supervisors, the Brown Township Supervisors need to repair McNitt Street. It is getting bad and rough to drive on.

Mother’s Day is coming and all the grown-up adult girls should think about asking their poor mother, who is still very able-bodied, to go along on a shopping trip like they used to or just out for lunch. Their mother is still able to go and would love to be with them and that could be the greatest gift.

Steve Dunkle defenders, you can’t defend Steve Dunkle this time. I was shown the check to the library. The funds are decreased.

I would like to say thank you to whoever the man was driving the white truck in the shopping plaza by Giant on Monday morning. My daughter got away from me and ran out in front of him and he was paying attention and stopped so that he didn’t hit her and I’m just very grateful that there are people who are safe drivers who are paying attention for children. So, thank you.

The senior high school community service requirement to graduate is nothing more than a way to turn our students into free labor and get them to do work that our community is too cheap to pay for.

I agree with the caller, the rest stop at the Seven Mountains needs work. Some politician needs to get off his butt and get some work done.

Steve Dunkle needs to watch the movie “Frozen” and let it go. These branch libraries were closed years ago, move on.

They really need to fix the rough patch on the bottom of the hill in Belleville along state Route 655. There is no excuse for how rough that is.

If our library closes because of financial difficulties, you can put the blame entirely on Steve Dunkle who is trying to get revenge on the library for closing his beloved Allensville branch. You can include his puppet Nancollas in the blame because she does whatever he tells her.

I’ve seen a squirrel without a tail and I called it a bunny, because that is what I thought it was.

Commissioner Dunkle, whatever the cost of our libraries, the cost is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.

Mr. Dunkle needs to practice what he preaches – transparency. Transparency has never been one of his strong suits.

The citizens of old Armagh Township are getting very nervous what sort of building is going into the area where the old Camelot was. …

Citizens and elected officials never wanting taxes raised for any reason have grown into an unhealthy political obsession. The current debate over police coverage for Juniata Terrace is a perfect example. Officials are literally asking the police to provide inferior protection rather than raising taxes a couple of dollars per resident. It is ridiculous.

I would like to thank the very generous lady who helped me at the Giant store in Burnham (Monday). I’m going through cancer treatments and your kindness made my day. You’re very sweet and everything you did was very appreciative. Please, please know that I will pass it forward. Thank you again.

I find it really, really sad that I read in the paper (Monday) that they had to have a fundraiser to buy a bulletproof vest for the dog Tank. I find it really sad that our community is so cheap that they do not provide a uniform, which is essentially a bulletproof vest, for that poor dog. That dog is technically an officer when he is on duty, much the same way as a policeman is an officer when he is on duty and the taxpayers do, in fact, provide a uniform for the policemen. So, in my mind, it should be a given that while that police dog is on duty, a uniform, a bulletproof vest, should be provided for that dog. I find it really sad that our community is so darn cheap that they don’t provide a necessary piece of equipment, that there has to be fundraisers and I’m embarrassed.

About public transportation in Mifflin County: Belleville had a bus owned by a Belleville resident and it made daily trips to Lewistown.

I remember a bus run in Belleville, but it was called the K.V. Bus Lines and I believe it was owned by S.I. Yoder. If I’m wrong, somebody older than me, correct that.

Hope you cellphone users saw “60 Minutes.” Hackers only need your phone number to hack in and steal all the info in your phones. They can even listen to your conversations and see you through your camera lens. Plus, anyone you can talk to, they can hack into their phones and do the same to them. Very scary.

You know, Ronald Reagan or George Bush, either George Bush would’ve ever left Russian jets fly by our ships that close. They would’ve been shot out of the sky the minute they would’ve got within a mile. …

The person who keeps whining about the people on the Lewistown Borough Council and the county commissioners should attend the meetings and maybe actually learn something and be better informed. Opinions could be expressed directly to them. Better yet, next time run for office so other people can call the Open Line with opinions about you.

This is about the Mifflin County High School baseball field. That field is unaccessible for most older people trying to crawl over that guard rail. Last year I seen several people fall over that guard rail. I hope somebody sues the school board and administration for not making that thing more accessible to people.

I’m calling about the bus service. Back in the 1940s, I was one of the woman drivers. And we definitely went to Milroy and Reedsville but I don’t ever remember a Belleville run. And as I’m 93, I don’t think there are too many of the drivers that drove when I was there are left. So I just wanted to correct that. In the ’40s we did have Reedsville and Milroy but I never knew of a Belleville (run).

I hope Kerry Benninghoff was being serious when he spoke (Thursday) night to the people in Mifflin County that he is serious about getting the balanced budget, not just puttin’ band-aids on stuff, taking something from one thing and adding to another. But even if it means raising taxes -which no, we don’t want – but if it balances the budget and gets us out of pension debt, it needs to be done.

I’m at home listening to the Mifflin County and Central Mountain baseball game, and I would just like to say, whoever is doing the announcing, the play-by-play, he’s doing such a terrific job. You can follow all the action. I would just like to say “thank you” to whoever that is.

I appreciate the fact that you put in your comments on the box scores, however the box scores that you put in for our local high school students … that does not recognize the people who didn’t get in the game as a starter. How ’bout the person who goes 0-for, didn’t make any runs, hits, whatever. Their name doesn’t get in the paper, and I think a box score would get all their names in the paper. The kids would see their names and play better. And I think that’s a very important part of the sports programs for our youth.

Thank you, Mary Margaret Pecht, for another very delightful read on the opinion page of Saturday’s newspaper. I’m ‘remembering when’ with you.

This call is about the seating at the high school baseball games. No bleachers available, you need to crawl over three foot of guard rail in order to place your carry-along chair on the steep bank overlooking the field. The least they could do is remove a section of railing during the seasons to make access available.

I would like to make a comment about Mary Margaret Pecht’s column in Saturday night’s paper. She said she did not remember if the Lewistown transportation bus ran through Reedsville, Belleville and Milroy. I do not know if it went to Belleville, but I do know it went to Reedsville and it went to Milroy because I rode it many, many times, up until, I’d say, the mid-1950s.

I say the Juniata County Commissioners have egg on their faces putting out the delinquent taxes early. Shame, is that the answer? I think not. … Instead, I think they should try to resolve the problem because it is a problem. It probably has to start at the state level. I am not against paying taxes, but make it fair. A flat tax, everyone pays, renters included. Then there should be more than enough. Or increase the sales tax, and then everyone pays. No, commissioners, I really think you did wrong on this issue. Shame on you.

I feel that the Juniata County School District ought to go back to the old one-room schoolhouse because just think of how much money they would save on transportation costs by having the school children walk to school. Plus, think of how many pounds would drop off the obese students and they would be getting some exercise.

Someone going to the next Juniata County School Board meeting needs to take a copy of the delinquent Juniata County property tax list in the local papers this week and show it to the school board. It might help them with their consolidation decision.

The Sentinel printed on how much the commissioners saved. How ’bout printing on how much they’re spending because I’m sure it would outweigh on what they’re saving.

Editor’s note: Expenditures are routinely reported in The Sentinel’s coverage of the weekly commissioners’ meetings.

The Juniata County Commissioners should be commended for taking a stand and naming those who deliberately and repeatedly opt not to pay their property taxes. … Commissioners Gray, Graybill and Partner, keep up the good work.

I think it’s kinda funny that this is gonna be the third summer in a row that they’ve messed with the football field at Juniata High School. Now, you’re telling me you can’t get somebody to do that right, yet you want to start construction on building plans? This is gonna be a joke. Can’t even do a football field right.

This is to correct the (comment) that said about the traveling library. It was called Cedar Hill School. And some of the children in the picture were the Glick children that lived across the road.

Hey to all you environmental nuts, do you realize the weather keeps getting worse? When’s it gonna improve? Oh, I know how you people work. Two thousand years from now, you’ll see a big change in it. This environmental outfit is nothing but a ploy of the the Democrats to collect money, just like the IRS, to harass people. Get rid of them.

Juniata County School Board and Juniata County residents, wake up. Look at the listings of delinquent taxes in Juniata County now. The commissioners say it’s over $400,000. Look how many people there are involved. We cannot afford a new school consolidation. We cannot do it. This list, so many people will be losing their homes that can’t pay their taxes now, what’s gonna happen? You won’t be able to sell your homes. Wake up. Don’t do it.

I would like a list of the things Commissioner Dunkle and Commissioner Nancollas are getting done. I’m just not seeing it.

The natural gas and emergency phone system was set up previously by the former board of commissioners. So let’s give credit where due.

We need to do something to East Market Street. It looks like a slum area when you drive down that street. All you see is empty buildings, one clothing store and restaurants. Building the new CVS to leave the one occupied now, that will be empty. We need to bring the economy back to Lewistown. Let’s get the same decent stores on East Market Street like we used to have. Make our town look great again.

So, I’m over 80 years. How can I be old? It took me 75 years just to grow up.

Since George Soros is running this country, why is he not a household name? Just a question.

The Mifflin County Library second quarter allocation was cut by $5,000 by Commissioner Dunkle and Commissioner Nancollas. I’m just wondering why.

Thursday evening I was at Michelle’s in Reedsville and there were two groups of people that I knew there: A friend from work and his wife, and some people that are in the family tree through marriage. One group had prayer with me and when I was done eating I went to pay my bill and was told it was already paid for. I don’t know who did it but the Lord does. God bless you.

I’ve been enjoying Mary Margaret Pecht’s recent columns on the Opinion Page. I can relate to the things she is saying. Maybe it is because of my age, but her comments have been very enjoyable.

I’m standing on the Walnut Street bridge along Kish Creek watching Pennsylvania Youth Grow Day. Yep, you guessed some adults are against innovation.

I’d just like to say that Mr. Dunkle and Mrs. Nancollas have done nothing but spend taxpayer money since they have been in there (as county commissioners) … Now they want a new phone system and they also hired an accounting person for $125 an hour, where is this money coming from? I hope they are only in for four years and then someone else runs.

Editor’s note: It should be noted that during their most recent meeting on April 7, the Mifflin County Commissioners also adopted an ordinance to refinance the county’s 2011 general obligation bonds – a measure that is expected to save the county as much as $250,000.

I see the county commissioners, the mayor and some other big shots in town want to fix up the Asher’s Chocolate building, put a new roof on it or something. If they have this kind of money to spend and waste in Lewistown, why don’t you get them to pay the senior citizens’ taxes if you really want to do something in this town?

Congratulations to Mr. Searer and the voters of Lewistown Borough for getting some common sense on the borough council. What an improvement that is.

Commissioner Dunkle earned a bachelor’s from Penn College in library science. He then served for several years on the board of trustees for the Mifflin County Library. How, then, would he justify … siphoning money from a state-funded library to the McVeytown and Allensville libraries which are not part of a state-approved system? Also, I see that the money that he is bringing from the Mifflin County Library is not going to the Milroy library. Why is that? Has he explained that to the Armagh Township citizens who no longer have a library?

Commissioner Dunkle, why not save the $250,000 that your refinancing will generate and use it for a tax decrease next year or at least to hold the taxes to keep them from increasing?

As a senior citizen in Juniata County, I’m distressed because eventually I won’t be able to keep my property. Because we all know taxes will go up if Mr. Yarger and this architectural firm get this multi-million dollar debt shoved down our throat. …

Thanks to the person or people for my dinner at Sub-N-Malt. I want to thank you again.

Who needs NASCAR? Spend some time on the road between Burnham and Strodes Mills and you’ll find out every day it’s race day up there all day every day.

My husband and I would like to thank the person who paid for our lunch last Friday at Red’s Diner. May they be richly blessed for that. Thank you.

To the drivers that are hauling the wide loads: I get over as far as I can, but could you please slow down?

I’m sick and tired of hearing about this stupid election and I’m sick and tired of the media trying to sway people how to vote.

I’m glad to finally see more people getting involved with the Embassy Theatre and them actually trying to put on events and do things within the community. I sure hope that they can get the project back on track and move forward with the goals. We really need to get this building restored so that they can help build our economy and bring people in for theatrical performances. I think that this is a great deal and to see at least something finally moving forward.

I’d just like to say if the Republicans can, indeed, balance the budget without raising taxes, then I think they should. Let us know. What are you gonna cut? You’re gonna cut something because you don’t have no magic wand. You either have to pay for programs or you have to get rid of the programs. So, just come out and say what you’re gonna cut. Don’t just say you’re gonna balance the budget ’cause it ain’t gonna happen. You make it seem like you’re gonna do this without cutting anything. I think it’s time, if it’s costing Pennsylvanians 250 a week on average, yeah, it’s gonna fall on us working people. It always does. I say we pay it. And let’s balance the budget. Let’s not live like the federal government and keep building this deficit higher.

One thing that’s clear, Commissioner Dunkle is a legend in his own mind.

I agree with the caller. I also listen to Michael Savage, radio talk show host. He’s very knowledgeable on what’s wrong with America today. If I had to choose between Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, it would be Michael Savage.

How long is it gonna take for the people of Lewistown Borough to understand that Larry Searer finally got the borough council that he’s wanted for years? You have yet to see the cronyism that’s gonna take place. Good luck.

Bernie Sanders is such a liar. There’s not one Republican governor in this country trying to supress anybody’s vote. The only thing that’s going on is people are calling for ID to vote. What’s wrong with that? If you’re legal, bingo, you’ll get an ID. So quit crying about it. Typical left-wing tactics that they do to make up lies. It’s been going on forever from the left wing in this country. Don’t ever vote Democrat or you’ll just get a liar in office.

If you never listen to Michael Savage, you should. Talk about one of the brightest, know-all minds in this country. He’s one of them. And if you can’t listen to him on the radio, go to his website at michaelsavage.com. You’ll see the truth. Whether you like it or not, it’s the truth and it’s what’s happening in this country.

I have a question for Sen. Cruz and Gov. Kasich. How many rape kits are sitting unprocessed on shelves in Texas and Ohio? These men claim that they’re for women and Donald Trump is not and I want to know what have they done. Years ago, living in Ohio as a divorcee, but I had remarried, but I was attacked … and I fought my rapist off. When I called the police, I was told, as a divorcee, I could not be legally raped in Ohio. Has John Kasich changed that?

Editor’s note: Rape in Ohio is defined as “any form of unwanted sexual contact obtained without consent and/or obtained through the use of force, threat of force, intimidation, or coercion.”

A person may also be charged with rape if they engaged in sexual conduct with another person who is not their spouse, or is their spouse but lives separately, and:

They substantially impaired that person’s judgment or control in order to prevent resistance, by giving that person drugs, controlled substances or some other intoxicant by force, threat of force or deception;

The other person is less than 13 years old; or

The alleged offender knew or had reasonable cause to believe the other person’s ability to resist or consent was impaired by a mental or physical condition, or advanced age.

Any change in Ohio law would have to come from the bicameral state legislature before the governor could sign it into law.

I’m a lifelong resident of Church Street in Reedsville and a licensed Realtor and I wanted to call to comment on the uninformed person who left a comment in (Monday’s) paper concerning the Reedsville Fire Company. Obviously, they are unaware of the goings-on here in our Brown Township, the fact that we have more growth than any other municipality, the fact that we have a three-story hotel coming in and we have more developments starting in our township than any other township in Mifflin County. So, why don’t you get your facts straight before you make comments about our volunteers here in Brown Township? You are dead wrong and I’m glad for their new, beautiful building we’re getting on 655.

I’d like to know why there has been other people who have sold drugs and ruined lives, but it has never been mentioned in the paper?

(Editor’s note: Individuals involved in drug offenses are typically only reported in The Sentinel when they have actually been charged with an offense by a recognized law enforcement agency. Anonymous phone calls or letters claiming an individual has committed a crime are not sufficiently credible by themselves to justify publication.)

When I drive past the new, huge, impressive looking Reedsville Fire Company building, I can’t help but wonder why a small community like Reedsville needs such a big building and all the equipment to fill it. It’s not like they are the only company. It’s very nice, but I don’t know why they need one that big.

I have no clue why you people are destroying Hillary Clinton. She is a politician and they all lie. She is not in trouble anymore than anyone. Until they do away with (political) parties, our country is going down the drain no matter who becomes president.

This is about the Lewistown Borough Council. I think the new direction the borough is going in was all planned between November and January, behind doors on Valley Street between the new council members and one old one.

We all have a time to leave this planet, it was Justice Scalia’s time.

We would like to thank the hospital nurse who personally brought a much needed prescription to the Lewistown CVS, and to Mike, the pharmacist, for all your help.

So Mr. Welham thinks he’s fooled the voters by running for a council seat, firing the borough manager so he can be the borough manager. Only in Lewistown.

I want to know why the county wants to tax the special needs center. If we’re gonna do that, then we need to tax fire departments, anything that’s non-profit.

During the rhetoric of the Cruz and Kasich campaigns, all they ever said is “I did this,” “I did that” or “I will do this.” They have not learned that “I” never did anything, but “we” working together, accomplish everything.

For those who believe that God intervenes in government, I wonder what they think of Justice Scalia’s death.

I’m in agreement with all these people calling in about trespassing on private property. If you wanna help pay the taxes, the mortgage and the insurance, I’d consider allowing you to trespass. Otherwise, get a job and buy your own.

Look, the big story in this election isn’t about Donald Trump. It isn’t about Ted Cruz. It’s not about a little tiff they’re having or talking about women, which is a lie, or whatever. And it’s not talking about Bernie Sanders “feeling the bern.” That’s irrelevant. The big story of this election is the Hillary Clinton indictment coming down the road. This girl is in big, big trouble. She lied to the American people. She’s been doing it for 30-some-odd years. She lies to the FBI. It’s gonna happen. She’s a liar from the day she was born. And anybody that believes any different is blind, Kool-Aid drinker, you name it.
