Letters to the Editor

Keep taxpayers in mind for future decisions

Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Amy L. Wagner, a member of the Juniata County School District Board of Directors, who represents Walker Township. A copy of the letter was submitted to The Sentinel for publication. Ms. Wagner: I understand that for reasons of legality that you are ...

Thank you to all who made Walk for Warmth possible

To the editor: The ninth annual Walk for Warmth was held on Saturday, Feb. 2 at Kish Park in Lewistown. The event is held each year in February, when temperatures are low, so that walkers could imagine what families who are struggling might endure. This year’s 55 walkers braved single ...

GOP vs. Democrats? More like good vs. evil

To the editor: Isn’t it great that we can share an opinion here in America? It became clear to me after reading Mr. Geedy’s letter in the opinion column of The Sentinel Sat., Feb. 16, that the Democrats are totally without morals. They push for abortion, gun registration and ...

Thank you for support during difficult time

To the editor: God is good. Monday, Jan. 28, 2019 started out like any other typical Monday. However, by early evening that cold Monday turned into a tragedy for our family. My husband, our father, Harry L. Aultz was killed in a car accident. God is good. Our family has experienced heartache ...

Not all who read The Sentinel are conservative

To the editor: This morning I looked at the cartoons on the editorial page of the last 11 issues of the Sentinel. Two cartoons were non-political (Super Bowl, Punxsutawney Phil); one might have been left-leaning, depending on how you look at it (Howard Schultz-Electoral College). Twelve were ...

Problems could be solved if ‘other side’ pitches in

To the editor: I completely agree with Mr. Geedey that there are many things we need to deal with in America. President Trump has accomplished more in two years than any other president in eight. Very few presidents have gotten to their office as much and worked as hard as this guy, and ...

Graduated income tax would be the fairest tax

To the editor: Taxpayers have to pay extra for each tax that is collected. That’s why we have the IRS, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and other tax collection services and individuals. But, we don’t need earned income taxes, excise taxes, fuel taxes, occupation taxes, per capita ...

With new abortion laws, it’s a sad time in America

To the editor: This is a sad time for this nation with the new abortion legislation passed by New York’s liberal Democrat legislature, and signed into law by New York’s liberal Democrat governor, where a child can be aborted right up until birth. Even worse was the bill the Democrats ...
