    Oct 13, 2022

    To the Editor: What is one of the most important issues facing our state and nation in this general election? I would say one of the most important issues is our freedom to make decisions free from big government interference. We have seen a steady and persistent attack on our freedoms in our country and in this election we have a chance to vote for candidates who will take a stand for our conservative values. Senator and Retired Col. Doug Mastriano is being called “extreme” by his opponent when in reality it is Shapiro who is extreme. Sha...

Someone with the determination and grit to put herself through school. Someone whose values lead them to choose people-centered professions that require compassion, empathy and a focus on helping others achieve their best selves. Carol Taylor will take her values—our values—to Harrisburg. The constituents o...

    Oct 13, 2022

    To the Editor: Each year a cost of living raise is doled out to senior citizens who collect Social Security benefits. Though the raise for 2022 was higher than previous years, it is still not enough to cover the ever skyrocketing cost of living. Each year Medicare raises the amount of money that is taken monthly to pay for Medicare benefits. But the deductible keeps increasing each year also. If a beneficiary has a Medicare Supplement plan or an Advantage plan those costs also increase. Monthly costs for a supplement increase each year with...

  • What to Know Before Using Bus Brokers

    PATTIE COWLEY, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Bus Association|Oct 13, 2022

    The Pennsylvania Bus Association (PBA) wants to alert you to a troubling trend we are seeing across the United States regarding a new type of “bus company” primarily marketed to school districts. The problem is that these are not bus companies at all, but artfully created websites that imitate a bus company, using various names and websites. They do not own any buses or motorcoaches, or maintenance facilities, nor do they employ any drivers, mechanics, or typical support staff. Simply a phenomenon of the internet, these “companies” are known a...

  • The Opposite of Rich

    Linda Sollenberger|Oct 13, 2022

    Biblical text: Matthew 19, Mark 10:17-24 Most of us know this story as the story of the rich, young ruler, although Mark is the only one who suggests that he is rich, Matthew is the only one who says he is young, and Luke is the only one who calls him a ruler. The fact that he shows up in three of the gospels is a pretty good indication that the story is true, although many of us wish that he had not shown up at all. Because of him we have one of the hardest sayings in the whole Bible: Go sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and...

  • Thought for the Week

    Oct 13, 2022

    I had intent to leave Isaiah three weeks ago but couldn’t seem to do it. I do plan to go to Jeremiah next week. D.V. I just got caught up in it again. Last week’s “Thought” might not have seemed to be from Isaiah, but the inspiration came from there. Today, I want to look at Isaiah chapter 35. Isaiah has brought prophecies of the future, the distant future and I think today, the far distant future. Isaiah has warned and pleaded with his people and other nations to turn to God WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. He knows God cannot stand a sham. Isaiah notes warni...
