Letters to the Editor

Clinton’s loss wasn’t caused by Russian hacks

To the editor: The crybaby liberals and Democrats just never quit. For a group who collectively complained and griped about President-elect Trump saying that he wanted to wait until the results of the elections were in before he decided to accept those results without a closer look, they sure ...

Thank you for support of this year’s Festival of Ice

To the editor: Another Festival of Ice has come and gone and we’re left in awe of the wonderful support we received from the volunteers and businesses. Without them, this community event would not be possible and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. This long list starts with our ...

An ode to those who responded to recent fire

To the editor: Thank you. We hear about it, read about it, talk about it, but we cannot know about it until it is our dear home on our beloved land. They come swiftly, though it seems an eon move quickly, efficiently with great precision, strength and direction in the bitter cold, the ...

Thank you for organizing Veterans Day parade

To the editor: I like to thank the mayor and all the people that worked on and put together all the events for the Veterans Day Parade. It may not have been a big parade but it is a great start. It’s been a long time since we, Lewistown, had a Veterans Day Parade. I hope we have many ...

Cutting compensation for tax collector is bad idea

To the editor: How would you feel if you were told that your annual income was being cut by over $9,000? That’s exactly what is being proposed for Erin Anewalt, the tax collector in the Borough of Lewistown. After increasing revenue for the borough during her first term, collecting an ...

Liars can omit but omissions don’t lie

To the editor: 1. Who said “We have no evidence of wrong doing but because of the seriousness of the complaint, we will investigate”? 2. Who said “We’ve been around for 240 years. We have had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked ...
