Letters to the Editor

Film ‘1917’ brought back memories of family

To the editor: I enjoyed the movie “1917.” Nominated for 10 Oscars and filmed with just one camera to make it look like one continuous shot, it captured trench warfare at its best. On a personal note, our grandfather Lawrence Stroup and his brother John C. Stroup “our great uncle” ...

Recent letter left much to be desired

To the editor: I read George Fisher’s submission in the “Opinion” section of Feb. 11 and decided not to dignify it with a reply. On second thought I would be remiss, observing George obviously lacks understanding, as is common today, with legal civic procedure. Let’s rewrite ...

Horse racing is important part of state’s economy

To the editor: The editorial on Feb. 11 began with, “If everyone agrees there is a problem, why hasn’t it been fixed yet?” The essence of the article in more money for college education by raiding the Horse Race Development Trust Fund. And, it ends with, “Pennsylvania’s status as an ...

We must vote with our conscience, not our party

To the editor: The days after his acquittal, President Donald J. Trump showed us and the world his true colors and exactly what the GOP is today; a vindictive, spiteful, mean, angry, petty, divisive, lying, unethical cult of self aggrandizing sycophants that will heap praise on a man that ...

The cult belongs to the socialist Democrats

To the editor: It seems that Mr. Eric Becht is transferring the accusation of cult from the Democratic Party to which it actually belongs to those of us who fight — often individually — in an attempt to protect our values. It was a cult that passed Obamacare which never lived up to its ...

Education money shouldn’t come at expense of racing

To the editor: After reading your editorial on the money that Gov. Wolf wants to take from the horse racing industry, I just had to respond. You make it sound like the horse racing industry is just a bunch of fat cats making money from racing. There are a lot more people who will be affected ...

Reported ‘corruption matters’ aren’t fact-based

To the editor: This is in direct response to the guest column of Feb. 5 (by Sen. Pat Toomey) as well as indirectly the editorial of Dec. 21 entitled “Fairness matters, even if it doesn’t to Congressional Democrats.” House Democrats’ impeachment articles allege that President Trump ...

By barring witnesses, GOP showed where it stands

To the editor: Imagine if you will that you are on trial. Judge (to prosecutor): Do you have witnesses? Prosecutor: Yes, we do, your honor. Judge: Well we don’t need to see them. Do have any documents that could prove guilt? Prosecutor: Yes, your honor, we do. Judge: Well we ...

GOP has become nothing more than cult of Trump

To the editor: Partisan political divide no longer has anything to do with political ideology or values but is now nothing more than tale of two realities. One being a cult following of a fictional narrative presented by a showman and his propaganda machine and the rest of us sitting in ...

Thank you for assistance with red kettle drive

To the editor: The Juniata County Salvation Army Service Unit would like to thank the following businesses, who helped us with the Kettle Drive: Mexico Market (bell ringer kettle), Schlegel’s Groceries (bell ringer kettle), Harshbarger’s Restaurant, Rutter’s, Walnut Cheese Nook, The ...
