To the editor: In response to Walter Lutz’s letter concerning the police protection in our Kulpmont Borough: Walter and I never really saw “eye to eye” on many things, but one topic we did agree on was the safety of the residents in our borough.

Maybe President Joe Biden had too many days of jet lag. Maybe he’d had it with the weasel words of diplospeak — the Russian description of his meeting with President Vladimir Putin was “constructive”; the American’s was “positive” — or maybe it was too many hours without food. They didn’t ta…

Internal Revenue Service data obtained by ProPublica and published last week shows in black and white just how rigged toward the rich the U.S. tax code has become.

To the editor: If you had no idea what the impact of chemical biological warfare would be, you just experienced it in 2020. More and more evidence is coming out that this virus was intentionally manifested in a laboratory in Wuhan, China. Whether or not it was purposely released into the wor…

To the editor: Recently, I was spending time in my flowerbeds when my bride of 34 years came out to help weed. Shortly after joining me, Tracy hollered, “You have to come see this!” She pointed out a line of ants carrying bits of food from the bird feeder to their home in the ground. My wife…

The brief video of Byron Cross speaking against a proposed transgender elementary school policy last month at a Loudoun County, Virginia, school board public hearing was a shot over the leftist bow.

I know a kid, older than 18, with a hole in his head, a spot where the frontal lobes of his brain never grew together. His neurons never connected. His body grew normally enough, but he has a hard time controlling his behavior; in fact, he can barely control himself at all.

Legendary whistleblower Dan Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers 50 years ago, a courageous act of truth-telling for which he later faced life in prison. He hasn’t stopped since. Last May, just weeks after turning 90 years old, Ellsberg made yet another disclosure of classified national secur…

During “regular” years, Pennsylvania lawmakers spend the month of June trying to scrape together enough money to produce a balanced state budget for the upcoming fiscal year that begins July 1 — or at least a budget that on the surface appears to be balanced, even if it really is not.

This week, a video from a San Francisco Walgreens went viral on Twitter. The video depicted a man standing next to his bicycle, loading up a garbage bag with products. The man then rides his bicycle down the aisle, past a security guard, who limply throws out a hand to try to grab the bag; t…

The City of Shamokin has fought tooth and nail attempting to bring home rule to the municipality. It seemed to be the best financial option available — continue at the tax rate citizens have currently been paying, close the $800,000 year-over-year budget shortfall, and continue offering the …

Businesses nearly everywhere in America say they’re desperate for workers, and the latest statistical evidence is the Labor Department’s Jolts report Tuesday of a record 9.3 million job openings in April. Get the message, Congress?

George Carlin had a hilarious routine describing his days as a parochial student. He’d try to stump the priest when Father would present an absolute:

“Letting adolescents have their way.” That’s one way to describe two public policies, advocated vociferously by woke liberals, opposed surely by most. One primarily affects young men, the other primarily young women.

Businesses nearly everywhere in America say they’re desperate for workers, and the latest statistical evidence is the Labor Department’s Jolts report Tuesday of a record 9.3 million job openings in April. Get the message, Congress?

ProPublica’s bombshell report on leaked tax returns of the ultrawealthy has made people mad. They seem mad mostly at the rich, who paid little in income taxes as a share of just their income and virtually nothing as a share of their net worth. In some cases, actually nothing. Some billionair…

To the editor: A June 9 Sound Off blurb titled “Wake up, people” decried President Biden’s failure to commemorate the anniversary of D-Day. On that date, Biden tweeted about the 1921 Tulsa Massacre, a decision the anonymous writer labeled “un-American” and “disrespect[ful]” to veterans.

For Pennsylvania school administrators and boards of education, this summer will present a major challenge on the health front related to, but also different from, what they were forced to contemplate during the darkest months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The accusation that America is deeply, irredeemably stained by systemic racism is not up for debate. No white person can be innocent. Your individual conscience is irrelevant. Each one of us is a white supremacist benefitting from a white supremacist structure. We must confess our “white pri…

We have gone from social distancing to racial distancing, courtesy of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who is a proud black lesbian and recently declared, “I will be exclusively providing one-on-one interviews only with journalists of color.”

June is Pride month. Last year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, I was not able to partake and enjoy PRIDE events in person during the summer. I am hopeful that this year we are able, even if its modified, to be able to attend and participate of these events. As a person of color, who is also op…

WASHINGTON — We are told that there are two types of Republicans today: those who accept that Donald Trump is the leader of the party and those who are in denial. Well, if Trump is really the head of the party, there is an easy way for him to demonstrate it — by making one simple, magnanimou…

To the editor: A few days ago, I was approached by a local business owner about trying to get Mr. Lou Barletta to our area. After making a call to a friend from out of the area on Tuesday, I was able to get Mr. Barletta confirmed to two locations within two hours for Wednesday afternoon.

State legislative leaders contend that a law to require lawmakers to post their expenses isn’t necessary because they plan to require the same thing as a matter of policy. In other words, “trust us.”

To the editor: Russia’s Vladimir Putin does not call Biden the American President he calls him the American Patient. The Biden family has been compromised by their dealings with China and Joe will never stand up to China. Harris is a habitual liar as was demonstrated by her recent visit to G…

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman continues a juvenile campaign to fly flags from his Capitol office in defiance of state law. He should stop his foot-stomping and start behaving like a grown-up — and a responsible elected official.

Step right up, one and all, for the chance to see one of the most embarrassing teams in Major League Baseball!

Sunday marked the 77th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy. On that day, Operation Overlord began, launching the Allied invasion of Europe that would spell the beginning of the end of the Nazi regime. At least 4,400 Allied troops died in the Normandy landings, and another 10,000 we…

The Biden White House is furiously trying to cajole congressional Republicans into signing off on his $2 trillion “infrastructure bill.” So far, they’ve held firm in saying not just no but “hell, no” to new taxes and spending to pay for all this.

More than 450,000 Americans have died from opioid overdoses in less than a decade. Though the synthetic and powerful opioid fentanyl now is the leading cause of opioid overdose deaths, the epidemic had its roots in prescription opioid addiction.

Some of the defendants facing charges in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol deserve points for creativity. Among the defense arguments emerging in court documents: “I got caught up in the mob” and “Trump told me to do it.” But the “mob” and the individuals charged in the insurrection are on…

Faced with a sudden explosion in demand as the economy reopens, employers are itching to hire. Companies are publicizing wage hikes, one-time bonuses, better benefits. Some are even trying to offer more humane working conditions!

During last year’s campaign, Joe Biden promised to “listen to the scientists.” He repeatedly said his coronavirus-response policy would be “informed by science and by experts.”
