Letters to the Editor

US must not shirk leading fight to reduce emissions

To the editor: The Sentinel editorial on Friday, Dec. 6 on climate change titled “Environmentalists should focus on the world’s biggest polluter — China” sends a terrible message. Pointing the fingers at others and absolving ourselves of any blame is not leadership. All the countries ...

What are you going to do with this good news

To the editor: Well, everyone, it is that time of the year again. The weather is getting colder. Thanksgiving is in the past and the big sales events are in progress. We have even had a bit of snow already. Kids are beginning to think of what toys and games they would like to see under the ...

To all who helped during, after fire: Thank you

To the editor: Around 1 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 30, my family and I were awakened by a fierce pounding on our front door. It was our neighbor, Aaron Miller, alerting us that our garage was on fire. If it were not for Aaron and his fiance, Amy Kohler, I might not be typing this letter right now. ...

Effort to impeach Trump is about more than Trump

To the editor: The more I observe the effort to remove the elected and rightful president of this nation I see a conspiracy disguised. Of course the progressives are hell bent on impeaching Donald Trump. It is not at all his gruff and somewhat blunt manner or even his tweets they use as a ...

Lewistown has holiday spirit because of many

To the editor: For the holidays, a concerted effort made possible through the cooperation of community-minded businesses, local government workers, veterans groups and organizations resulted in the annual placement of the Christmas tree on Monument Square. The tradition of obtaining and ...

Thank you for support of annual veterans parade

To the editor: The Mifflin County Commissioners would like to extend thanks to everyone who participated in, or attended, our fourth annual Veterans Parade on Nov. 7. We are grateful that the rain stopped 45 minutes before the parade stepped off at 6:30 p.m. First, we would like to ...

If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything

To the editor: On Nov. 25, the political cartoon on the editorial page pictured a very sad likeness of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch saying, “Trump hurt my feelings.” While I enjoy a good political cartoon as much as the next person, this image has disturbed me for an entire week. ...

Juniata County Food Pantry does heroic service

To the editor: Recently a photo was printed in the Sentinel thanking the Kiwanis Club of Juniata County for the Thanksgiving food distribution. The Kiwanis Club of Juniata County has always been pleased to partner with the food pantry to make this wonderful event possible. The Juniata ...
