    Everything is going up; just to name a few: fuel, mortgages, interest rates, food, vehicles, housing, appliances and utilities. That is everything except one, the savings account. Who or what is to blame? I can tell you where I think the most blame falls. That person is sitting in the big se…

      As a parent and a former teacher, I am deeply offended by, not only HB 2521 introduced by Barb Gleim, but also the title, "Anti-Indoctrination in Teaching Act." I have never known of a case of “a teacher or other school employee compelling students to adopt or adhere to beliefs the violate t…

        When I was a kid, there was a game called “The Last Straw.” You would take turns putting plastic straws into a basket on a toy camel until the camel’s back was broken.

          I was shocked to read, in the June 16 issue of The Sentinel that a drag queen is scheduled to perform at this Saturday’s “Family Storytime” at the Bosler Library. Who thought that this was appropriate for a program designed to entertain children? Look at the photos accompanying the article a…

            I am a registered Republican who has voted Republican all my life. In 1960 while doing basic training at Fort Dix, I voted for Richard Nixon, although I later admitted that it was an honor to serve under JFK as my Commander-in-Chief. For the most part, I have been proud to vote with my party.

            Words and more words! The more we hear, the worse they get. America needs help! But who can help her? Almighty God is its one and only hope. God even tells us in His word the answer found in II Chronicles 7:14. Pastors need to preach the pure Word of God. We can’t just be “Sunday” Christians…

            Wouldn’t it be great if in the midst of our sanctions against Russia to stop buying Russian oil and gas on which Europe depends greatly, therefore diminishing the supplies to the entire world, we would look creatively for solutions? We have the opportunity to incentivize energy efficient far…

            Suicide. It’s a statistic that news outlets and doctors claim threatens trans youth most. And, to run from it, many suggest running towards gender-transition surgery. But where is that leading them?

            According to the recent testimony at the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 violent attack on the U.S. Capitol, our representative, Scott Perry, sought a presidential pardon. What this says to me is that Mr. Perry knew he was complicit in a potential coup of our government and wanted t…

            On Memorial Day we remembered our war heroes. But we don’t really have to worry about a war with Russia, China or even a war between the states. We’re already in a great war—against ourselves. And this time, we’re putting our children (and minorities, anybody “different” or those just doing …

            The Republican candidate for governor claims there are untold numbers of dead voters and “ghost voters” registered in Pennsylvania. His solution to this imaginary problem is to force everyone to re-register to vote. This is yet another thinly veiled Republican attempt to purge voter rolls of…

            Mr. Dick Polman's June 1 commentary "Everything old is new again" likes to throw around high sounding terminology such as innocents, decency, moral and uses phrases such as "benumbed insanity," "slaughter of little kids" as to try and take the high road with regard to school shootings, while…

            The horror, grief, fear and anger cannot be measured when we hear of innocent children and teachers being killed in our schools. We ask how, why and what can be done to prevent future incidents. Opinions, studies, investigations become the highest-ranking news item for days. Our hearts griev…

            Your article "Charging into the Future" of May 28 describes Borough Council and Climate Action Committee member Joel Hicks passion about climate change being evident from his wildly shifting emotions on the subject - being overwhelmed or joyful or frustrated or optimistic - all during a single day.

            America is falling short. We are in danger of losing the rights of pro-choice. We don't have a decent living wage. We don't have affordable medical access for everyone. We are losing our clean environment. We don't have responsible gun control laws. And the list goes on. The majority of Amer…

            When I wrote a letter in December 2021 titled "Project deserves further review," little did I realize that CASD would not even have considered a traffic study. Yes I was aware that they continued to avoid operating within the Pa. School Code.

            The No. 1 cause of death in pregnant women is murder (Journal of the American Medical Association). This is horrifying! Some say murder of pregnant women will go even higher if they have no access to abortion. Women can die from other medical situations such as ectopic pregnancies, miscarrie…
