Your view: Wyoming Area lucky to have seasoned superintendent

When you read that 45 teachers in the Harrisburg School District have resigned, you realize that teaching has turned from the pursuit of academic excellence to the rehabilitation of bad parenting.

Your view: An open letter to the NFL players

Your teenage years were a struggle. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 pounds and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football.
