Your view: Help fight climate change

There exists a very dangerous and harmful environmental agenda proposed by the Trump Administration. President Donald Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt are working to decimate decades of environmental progress that have made our air, water and communities cleaner and safer. No cabinet official in the administration is moving more aggressively or boldly to dismantle […]

Your view: Use common sense to make highways safer

A reminder to the Pennsylvania Legislature: There is no crisis of speeders, red light runners, drivers mowing down school bus riders, nor drivers generally running amok. Festering in assorted committees are various anti-driver/anti-safety bills: putting ineffective and inaccurate speed cameras in highway work zones; putting ineffective and inaccurate speed cameras on Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia […]

Your view: PLCB should expand number of outlets selling wine, spirits

Frustrated with the budget impasse, Gov. Tom Wolf recently offered several proposals as a way forward with the Pennsylvania Legislature. Among those plans, Wolf announced that the state would securitize profits from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to raise $1.25 billion to pay off the prior year’s deficit.

It comes down to this: There are those who seek a future and there are those who only care about the present.

Your view: NFL players disrespect our fallen heroes

I could not have helped noticing that on the very same day that the Fort Jenkins Bridge in Pittston was renamed the Dale Kridlo Bridge, many players in the NFL knelt during the playing of our national anthem.

Your view: Troubling times indeed

The headline on Monday’s sports section should read: Vice President Mike Pence protests free speech by leaving Colts-49s game.

Your view: Technology having negative effect on youth

In 2010, Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad. For 90 minutes, he explained why the iPad was the best way to look at photos, take classes on iTunes, Facebook, listen to music, play games and navigate thousands of apps. Jobs advocated that everyone should own an iPad. Why did he and other tech giants refuse to […]

Your view: Take a knee in prayer, not in protest

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. Then take a knee. Then take a knee to Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was […]
