Letters to the Editor

BLM’s intentions are about Marxism more than race

To the editor: So now, according to Mr. Geedey, an organization founded by Marxists on Marxist principles has somehow become a peaceful assembly of protestors. Only a fool would accept that. The seed of a weed does not grow into a rose. The BLM is but an instrument intended to introduce an ...

Thank you to those who donate to Burnham pool

To the editor: On behalf of everyone that is associated with the operation and use of the Burnham swimming pool, I would like to thank every person or business that made a donation this year to help continue the pool’s operation. The pool gets no government help and is solely operated on ...

Clothing giveaway was answer to my prayers

To the editor: I just want to thank everyone who had the new children’s clothing giveaway in downtown Lewistown about two weeks ago. It was truly an answer to a lot of prayers. May God richly bless you and yours always. Thank you! Terry L. Hepner Lewistown

Many who support Trump are hypocrites for doing so

To the editor: I guess Donald Trump must have fulfilled all his campaign promises. His most famous one was building the wall and Mexico would pay for it. He did get some wall built but he had to steal the money from the military. The army probably didn’t need that money. Too bad Obama ...

Don’t buy what ‘Black Lives Matter’ group is selling

To the editor: I am perplexed! Each day I read and hear so many applaud the establishment and the ongoing actions of the “peaceful” BLM activists roaming and destroying even small businesses owned by people of their own race. How does that address grievances claimed? A number of those ...

Suggestion made in recent letter is horrifying

To the editor: Mr. John Brittain’s five-point letter in the July 14 Sentinel included one point that should horrify every American who reads it: “All Chinese citizens in this country should be thoroughly questioned as to their reason for being here, and suspicious types should be sent ...

Protesting is fine, rioting and looting is not

To the editor: Some years ago, I was involved in the local tea party protests. The first one took place in the vacant lot below Water Street in Lewistown, where they would sometimes have a carnival. We carried signs, listened to speeches and verbally expressed our grievances. When we were ...

To the editor: Those of us in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District represented by Fred Keller recently received a survey soliciting a response on supporting “rural” hospitals. The question as posed: “Do you agree that we must support our rural hospitals and make services more ...
