Shamokin PA

Sound Off


To all you liberal-minded people who espouse gun control and immigration reform, please consider the following: Chicago has been in Democratic control for years, it has been a sanctuary city for years, and it has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, a liberal utopia if you will. Why, then, does it have the most shootings/murders in the country? My conservative mind just doesn’t understand this.

Donnie danger

Never do I recall a president’s mental stability questioned. Trump’s fitness to serve is even a concern for those in the White House who work for him. The new book about Trump is additional evidence that he is unfit to be president. Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to this country.

Steady decline

I assume the caller who rejects socialized medicine will decline his Medicare when he is eligible.


To the person wondering about the money being spent on the Shroyer pool, did they ever maybe think that the $70,000 was a private donation or maybe some kind of grant that could only be used for that and not for demolition or for the library? They could go to a city council meeting and find out, I’m sure.

Walled in

Trump keeps asking for money to build this damn wall. I thought Mexico was paying for it.

New talent

I am calling about the list of people that want to be on the Shamokin City Council. I am not a resident of the city, but I do believe that instead of considering the wannabe political people who have been in before and have done nothing to help the city, give the newcomers a chance. The former members were not there for many meetings. And to have the mayor’s wife want to be on council?


To the caller complaining about the money spent on the Shroyer pool, he or she probably never goes there and doesn’t know what’s happening. The pool has swimming lessons, lifeguard classes, events with teenagers and water aerobics for adults. It is one of the few good things we have here so it must be maintained. Frog’s take: That pool was a godsend during my long road to recovery from GBS.

In a bunch

Crooked Hillary worshippers like Jack Strausser and Kenn Splitt had their Fruit of the Looms all twisted up about President Trump’s tax overhaul, but have been noticeably quiet now that so many companies are hiring and giving $1,000 bonuses to their employees. The stock market is at an all-time high and new manufacturing plants are being built around the country to create thousands of new jobs. Crooked Hillary lost, so get over it.

Over the top

Even some of the writers for upscale magazines like The New Yorker and Vanity Fair are admitting that President Trump could win re-election in 2020, and for one, two-fold reason: The Democratic National Committee has still done nothing to reach out to the “working class” voters who pushed Trump over the top in 2016, and has concentrated on suburban Congressional races, and trying to convince Hillary Clinton not to run again. To merely criticize the incumbent, without a real strategy of your own, is pointless.

In the pudding

It was called in to Sound Off that Donald Trump is lying about all the money laundering he has done over the years. You have proof of this statement? You can back your statement with absolute facts? You can go into a court of law and swear on the Bible that you have actual facts and proof that Donald Trump launders money? Another stupid remark.
