Letters to the Editor

Santa’s Bookbag is truly a community effort

To the editor: This year’s Santa’s Bookbag project was very successful due to the hard work and generosity of many people. Working with The Sentinel, the Salvation Army and local Community Christmas Project, we provided books at Christmas for 620 children. Each child received one new ...

Term limits would really ‘drain the swamp’

To the editor: I have often wondered just how we, as a nation, ever managed to allow politicians to make a career out of holding political office. Whenever the topic comes up for discussion, it is usually directed toward the United States Congress which is certainly being overrun by career ...

Homemaking can be a wonderful career choice

To the editor: Your “Careers in the Juniata Valley” supplement was so very interesting and informative. However, you omitted one common and desirable career — homemaking. Never dull or boring, homemaking involves cleaning, cooking, marketing, child care, gardening, sewing and mending, ...

Democrats’ display during SEAL tribute was wrong

To the editor: Approximately a week ago, Maxine Waters, one of the most controversial and off-the-wall Democrat U.S. senators, referred to all of President Trump’s Cabinet choices as “scumbags.” She should have saved that label for several of her disgusting Democrat cronies who ...

To the editor: I would like to thank Sen. Robert Casey for listening to his constituents and introducing legislation that will allow Americans to buy safe, inexpensive imported prescription drugs. The bill that Sen. Casey, Sen. Bernie Sanders and their Democratic and independent ...

Forget me if this is how the ‘forgotten’ are treated

To the editor: The president and GOP House of Representatives proposed a blueprint for tax reform. It includes 2 percent higher taxes for singles making $12,000-$19,650 per year and couples making $24,000-$39,500 per year. This is equivalent to is a week’s pay going to people who make ...

Recent column did not tell whole story of breeders

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to Julianne Cahill’s column “As bad as puppy mills: PETA’s ‘Rumor’ mill regarding breeders” that was published on Page A4 of the Feb. 23 edition of The Sentinel. To the editor: Aside from being a case study in alternative facts, ...

A whale of a tale of a pair of presidents

To the editor: It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times. It was the best of times when President Reagan said “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” and the Berlin Wall, just like the walls of Jericho, came down. It was the worst of times when President Trump said ...
