Animal-friendly bill

By Tribune-Review
I am an animal lover hoping to encourage others to speak up and report animal abuse/neglect when they see it. This issue has gone unaddressed in Clearfield County for far too long. There is no sadder sight than those outcast, ...

Vitriolic opinion

By Tribune-Review
I remain supportive of President Obama and subscribe to the Tribune-Review. Talk about an oxymoron! The daily opinions are expectedly not my “cup of truth” but they are in line with the anti-Obama rhetoric. Then, there is a vitriolic ...

Jesus’ resurrection

By Tribune-Review
Jesus’ resurrection All Christianity hinges on the fact that Jesus returned from the dead. Easter is the day believers celebrate Jesus Christ’s resurrection. The Christian’s victory cry is, “Jesus is risen.” Through the grace of God and Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and ...

Disrespectful  deceit

By Tribune-Review
I’ve been paying attention to the news surrounding the treatment our wonderful president has given to Israel. Not that I know any better about politics or how to negotiate with foreign leaders, but I noticed how President Obama treated Israeli ...

Undeserved ridicule

By Tribune-Review
I figure it is a slow news day when I read another article about Mt. Lebanon’s deer problems. The Trib paints a picture of government incompetence, which is an enduring theme with this newspaper. The reality is that this ...

Curious priorities

By Tribune-Review
George Macesic’s letter “True to form” hit the nail on the head again. Hempfield Township bragged about not raising taxes and not funding the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library and is still refusing to have its own police department, which makes ...

Politicians on display

By Tribune-Review
Last Monday’s groundbreaking for the new U.S. Steel headquarters building was another demonstration of why we are so proud of our politicians. There was our governor of a few weeks, grandstanding as if he had something to do with what was ...

Roundabout doubt

By Tribune-Review
After reading the news story “PennDOT turns to roundabout intersections, citing safety, cost”, I am concerned that PennDOT will open itself to a rash of ...

Hell before Judgment Day

By Tribune-Review
“The co-pilot of the Germanwings jet barricaded himself in the cockpit and intentionally rammed the plane full speed into the French Alps, ignoring the captain’s frantic pounding on the door and the screams of terror from passengers, a prosecutor said ...

Bright lines: Mandatory voting

Real American exceptionalism II

By Tribune-Review
Regarding Karl Jacoby’s column “Ignoring history for the sake of American exceptionalism” and the accompanying cartoon: I would suggest that American exceptionalism, at its core, is none of the concepts with which Jacoby attempts to associate it: lack of feudal ...

Real American exceptionalism I

By Tribune-Review
In his column “Ignoring history for the sake of American exceptionalism”, Karl Jacoby calls American exceptionalism a concept devoid of meaning. I disagree and believe that a meaning can be found in the words of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. ...

Misleading on Fawn police

By Tribune-Review
In response to Al Ewing’s March 24 letter, “Montanari was wrong,” regarding Fawn Township and the current controversy of police staffing: Ewing’s letter quoted Fawn Supervisor Dave Montanari, but simply said, Ewing took his words out of context. Montanari’s intent ...

Pension-letter ire I

By Tribune-Review
In response to the letter “Municipal-pension ire” from Karen Stillitano of Jeannette: “Free” pension? I am a retired state employee, and my employer took money out of my paycheck every two weeks for 35 years to contribute to that pension. ...

Pension-letter ire II

By Tribune-Review
To Karen Stillitano: I’m writing regarding your “fat lazy cop on the take” comment in your letter “Municipal-pension ire”. Police officers advance toward extremely dangerous situations that other people are running away from. Officers face the chance of physical harm or ...

A lesson learned

By Tribune-Review
I am writing this letter to honor Cheri Croney, for whom I have tremendous empathy and admiration. She is the wife of Kevin Croney, the tattoo artist who was murdered outside his shop, True Image, in New Kensington on March ...

Party of insanity

By Tribune-Review
The evidence is clear. Democrats at all levels of government are insane. Einstein stated that doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Over the 50 years since LBJ’s Great Society, Democrats ...

Use lawmakers’ ‘boots’

By Tribune-Review
I hear the sword-rattling for “boots on the ground” in the war on terror. But I’m not convinced, and neither is history, that fighting evil, ruthless, immoral people who have no country with “boots on the ground” is effective. But ...

McKeesport stands as a role model

By Tribune-Review
Western Pennsylvanian communities have transformed over the last few decades. Newer communities sport upscale housing developments and business parks, while older communities work to maintain their infrastructure and history, which have stretched for generations. McKeesport falls into this latter category. ...

Deer debate continues I

By Tribune-Review
As a concerned citizen, I would like to add my two cents to the deer debate. I live on a highway and have herds of deer in my yard daily. Forget the plant, tree and fence destruction I’ve had. Last ...
