Letters to the Editor

There is an evil within the Republican Party

To the editor: This heartless bag of lies, Donald J. Trump, has mourned the loss of his rallies more than the 100,000 dead Americans. And still, some of you support him. Why? Do you ever actually watch him live? Or do you just hear the edited clips on right wing media? He does not care if ...

Wars are bad for working class and national debt

To the editor: Have there ever been years in American history when the federal government was debt free? Yes, in 1834, 1835 and 1836 when Andrew Jackson was the president. How many times in American history have there been years with federal government budget supluses? There have been 103 ...

Thank you to teachers who have molded me

To the editor: Since I’m a teacher, I would like to take the opportunity to thank a few of my wonderful public school teachers from both the former Decatur Elementary School and East Derry Elementary School who taught me lessons that I have applied to my own work in public education. Mrs. ...

How many deaths are OK when restarting economy?

To the editor: I participated in the virtual town hall of Sen. Jake Corman and Rep. Fred Keller on May 21. I noticed that the questions that were being accepted seemed geared toward pushing a narrative and not addressing the concerns of those of us that recognize the dangers this pandemic is ...

We’re not ready to open unless we wear masks

To the editor: I want to commend the commissioners of Juniata and Mifflin counties and our state legislators on their calm, respectful and caring response to the COVID-19 virus. The well written pleas to the state and the reported discussions of the commissioners showed none of the venom and ...

Disappointment with her hometown

To the editor: While working at the PA House of Representatives, I organized visits to Mt. Union and Huntingdon County from PA legislators. I was excited to share all that is good about my hometown. Born and raised in Mount Union, I’ve always been proud of our small town values, of our ...

Elect a clown, expect a circus

To the editor: I’d like to respond to Larry Craig’s letter to the editor on May 1. First, he stated that the Democrats blocked the travel ban on flights in the House by a vote 220-0. Aren’t there any Republicans in the House that voted? He also stated that Trump mentioned the virus in ...

Time for voters to oust Trump before it’s too late

To the editor: The President of this great country continues to fail the American people on a daily basis. The lies, deceit and lack of any compassion or remorse are just a few. This could of gone very differently if he acted right away. But no, let’s keep on going just to fill his and ...

Wolf, other officials treating us badly

To the editor: Gov. Wolf had promised transparency. We have not gotten it. I do not believe that the governor can pronounce the word much less spell it! We have done, voluntarily, what you have asked. We have done it for at least two months. You in turn keep moving the goal posts and ...

Politicians taking freedom over virus

To the editor: We are currently in the midst of a lockdown — a lockdown of our right to assemble, of our right to travel, to work, of almost everything we normally do. This lockdown, in which left-wing politicians, socialists, communists, and the like, are attempting to replace American ...
