Jesus still heals

Dear Editor, I am here to tell you that there is nothing too impossible for the Lord to do! He is still in the healing business. On June 7, 2012, I was told that I had stage 4B sinus cancer. That was a day that I will never forget. Six different doctors at UPMC in Pittsburgh told me I was ...

Time to build St. C.

Letters to the Editor – Ninja Warrior

Dear Editor, I’ve been watching American Ninja Warrior from my lair on the sofa. Soft drink in hand and a bowl of chips handy, I’m inspired by the athletic prowess of these beautiful people. As most Americans, I’ve let myself go, falling prey to a fast food lifestyle and poor diet like ...

Letters to the Editor – A few quotes

Dear Editor, I would like to share a few quotes with you. First one from Theodore Roosevelt: “To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” The second one is from Marcus Cicero: “A ...

Letters to the Editor – Stephen Miller

Dear Editor, Where does Stephen Miller — someone no one has ever heard of — get off on setting American immigration policies that are morally reprehensible and harm millions of human beings? Miller is a former Breibart News hack that is now an assistant in Trump’s White House in charge ...

Advocacy works!

America has betrayed our founders

Dear Editor, America has betrayed our founders! America has betrayed our God! Christians escaped religious persecution in Europe and with God’s divine intervention, created our great nation. Ten-plus miracles by God sustained our founders during our Revolutionary War. We were outnumbered 10 ...

The National Media

Dear Editor, At the end of the presidential campaign of 1960, President Eisenhower gave a cryptic and prophetic warning to the people of the United States. He said, “beware the military-industrial complex.” Now that we have come almost 60 years from that date I would believe President ...

Climate Change

Dear Editor, So, I was thinking that I might flip. I know that I have some loyal readers and I may run the risk of disappointing both of them, but I just may reverse my position on climate change. It’s not the pictures of polar bears stranded on ice flows (You know that polar bears are ...

Hero for sugar reform

Dear Editor, Last week, the sugar cartels won in their latest attempt to enrich themselves at the cost of the American consumer. Fortunately, not every member of Congress acted like a puppet! Congressman Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, voted for reform and continues to be hero for sugar reform. He is ...

Help appreciated Dear Editor, I cannot help but comment on the commentary in the Dec. 13 edition of The Times Leader on Kim Jong Un. It states that three renowned international jurists wish to have Kim charged with crimes against humanity for having camps, prison camps, where they keep their ...

Letters to the Editor

Couple commended Dear Editor, Bob and Robin Harper of Beallsville, Ohio, are a very community-minded couple. Although they would never brag, or probably don’t even think twice, or realize it., Bob and Robin are a treasure to the town of Beallsville, the outside community, the friends who ...

Letters to the Editor

Make your choice Dear Editor, As Americans we have the freedoms most other countries don’t have, to express ourselves freely, but at what cost? Our words have enormous power! They can build us up or tear us down, be a blessing or a curse. Every day we listen to vicious, bitter, hateful ...
