Letters to the Editor

Until Christ returns, we need to protect our planet

To the editor: Like Mr. Baumgardner, (Letter to the Editor, March 8) I believe that Christ will return and that there will be tribulation on earth before he does so. The faithful have believed this since St. John experienced his revelation on the island of Patmos. Our God hasn’t seen fit ...

Some thoughts on effects of global warming

To the editor: There I was the other day, with two sweaters on, looking out the window at the polar vortex and wondering what my heat bill was going to be, and on the TV was a cluster of activists yelling about global warming, and I thought to myself: is global warming going to be all that ...

Humanity’s demise was foretold and is inevitable

To the editor: The argument about which political group is morally and ethically correct is pointless. Comparing ethical and moral relativism to biblical morals and ethics is like comparing the Dead Sea to Lake Tahoe. This is assuming the political right does believe in biblical principles. ...

Thank you for support of Veterans Memorial Pool

To the editor: The 11th annual basket and Chinese auction to benefit the West Beaver Township Veterans Memorial Pool in McClure was held on Saturday. What a great day it was! We would like to thank all those that donated baskets and items for the Chinese auction as well as those who donated ...

Lifesaving work of chopper crews is a huge blessing

To the editor: I am 66 years old and enjoy flying even though I am not a pilot. I mainly take great respect in every time I see a helicopter take off from (Geisinger-)Lewistown Hospital no matter if it is a Hershey Life Lion or Geisinger Life Flight, plus whatever other type is used. If it ...

Democrats are far from ‘immoral’ for their beliefs

To the editor: As a liberal Democrat, I’d like to thank Mr. Geedey for adding another viewpoint in our local newspaper. He used logic and facts to express his thoughts. There is little of that going around these days. Also, for anyone who believes Dems are immoral, there is nothing immoral ...

Recent letter is indicative of mentality of liberals

To the editor: A letter recently published by a Mr. Geedey (Editor’s note: That letter was published in Monday’s edition) should be used as a prime example of the liberal mentality that is eroding our country. His claim that Venezuela should not be used as an example of failed socialism ...

Opinions on the border wall

To the editor: What if someone came into your workplace who was not hired, who did not work there, but demanded a paycheck weekly. Sound bizarre? This is exactly what our open borders are doing to us. Instead they steal our wages by making us provide their housing, food, education and ...

Thanks for canning project success

To the editor: Thanks to God’s guidance, this is the 45th year for our canning project. Through God’s grace and the love shown by so many people in Central Pennsylvania, we still help to feed those who are hungry. We canned 34,000 pounds of turkey, which produced 21,340 cans of ...

Saying Democrats are without morals is illogical

To the editor: I will remind readers that my original letter was about priorities and how this president has failed. In his letter of Feb. 19, Doug Sellers chose to ignore the fact that President Trump had two years where his party controlled both houses of Congress. Instead of making a wall ...
