Porter Twp. — I’m forever grateful and so respectful of Dr. Larry, his staff and the ER staff at Penn Highlands Huntingdon. They go far above and beyond what I’ve ever had, anywhere, before. In this time of disaster, they were wonderful. Thank you all so much. You are precious, every one of you.

- — — — -

Miller Twp. — I understand farmers need to fertilize their fields and control costs. I am supportive of that. My concern is with the use of liquid pig manure as fertilizer being used near Standing Stone Creek and residential housing. The stench is unhealthy and completely disrupts normal living. The runoff from these fields directly into the creek can not be avoided, so why is it acceptable? Farmers, please find an alternative that doesn’t negatively impact your neighbors and the environment. What’s wrong with using cow manure with a spreader as in the past?

- — — — -

Huntingdon Co. — Expect major pushback if they try to shut this state down again. We will never sit by and allow that to be done again. If you close your businesses or follow these unconstitutional orders, you’re contributing to your own demise. It’ll never happen again without a fight.

- — — — -

Penn Twp. — Go! Operation warp speed!

- — — — -

Walker Twp. — Propaganda is defined as a systematic effort to persuade people to support or adopt a particular opinion, attitude or course of action. The distortions and half-truths calculated to bias one’s judgement or opinions.

Mount Union — Mount Union School Board needs to open up the job for head football coach.

- — — — -

James Creek — In response to the open letter in the Nov. 14 edition of the paper, you have got to be kidding me! The state House GOP is attacking our democracy? The Chinese Communist Party or CCP is all up in this election. The undersigned in this letter must be delusional. Donald Trump aside, this election needs to investigated to the fullest extent of the law. We the people, the ones who love this country and have children and grandchildren who will go on after us, know what is at stake. The Chinese are after world domination and we are the only country standing in the way. Joe Biden will be blackmailed into doing their bidding. Trump is putting America first, the only one to do so since Reagan. Think about this virus, the lockdowns, the closed businesses, closed churches, mostly by Democrats. Does this sound like America? God help us. Pray!

- — — — -

Mount Union — I thought the superintendents job was to support the education of the students especially when there isn’t any education happening. However when parents attempt to contact her regarding this, there is never a response. She hides and hopes things go away. Only silence. Thanks, Dr. Smith, for showing what is truly important to you.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — Trump called for national division from a bully pulpit. Whether we let him further divide us is now up to us. Love of country demands we turn away from his rhetoric. What is deeply worrying is his lack of respect for our electoral system. By falsely trying to persuade the public of widespread electoral fraud, he undermines trust in the electoral system. This seems of no consequence to him, but a stable, peaceful transfer in which President-Elect Biden has access to information, resources, and Secret Service protection, are essential, not for Biden, but for America’s security interests. Our peaceable transfer of power also distinguishes us from unstable nations. Our enemies favor Trump because he divides and destabilizes us. It’s time to look beyond our divisions. Let patriotism, not desperate, divisive words guide us.

Mill Creek — To the person from Saltillo who tried to impress us with their math word problem skills. So if I have five apples and I eat three and throw/give one away, guess what? Three plus one doesn’t equal five, so it must be fake that I had five apples to begin with. Did you by any chance stop to think that the 34,000 that you mentioned equates to the people still not recovered from the virus yet? I’m tired of the conspiracies that this virus is all a fake just to keep Trump out of office. It is almost as stupid as people being told not to go to the testing site because it’s run by Democrats to keep you from voting. People, lets get real. There are people dying in this county because of this. Stop making up conspiracies. Wear a mask. Be a decent human being and show concern for others.

- — — — -

Mill Creek — To the person in Huntingdon and Walker Township that had issues with pen and paper, if you were so concerned you should have gone to a poll worker and asked them for help. They could have issued you a new ballot instead of you running to the Opinion Line and spouting garbage. If the machine accepted your ballot it counted. It would have made noises and kicked it back if it could not read it. Learn how the voting process works. So many people don’t understand how to vote. When you apply for absentee ballot you have to spell your name correctly and follow a simple four-step process to get it and cast it. If you choose then to go to the polls instead, you have to bring your absentee ballot with you and they can destroy it properly at the polling location. You are assigned by where you live.

Three Springs — The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10).

- — — — -

Huntingdon — I agree with the opinion last week. The school bus contractors should not have a windfall because of the pandemic.

- — — — -

Huntingdon Co. — I agree with last week’s opinion. School bus contractors should not receive a windfall because of the pandemic. Half pay would be more fair. It is our taxes that pay them. No wear on the buses when there is no school, no fuel and no driver pay.

- — — — -

Walker Twp. — The Republicans in Congress who were too afraid to stand up to Donald Trump for the past four years and are now sitting back as he makes a mockery of our election process and puts us at further risk around the world, are some of the most spineless people on Earth.

- — — — -

Porter Twp. — Now it’s a deluge of lies from the right. Rush Limbaugh babbling how Biden couldn’t have won. Just like he lied, saying the coronavirus was a conspiracy to get rid of Trump. And Roger Stone’s horse apple stop the steal conspiracy. Just more kooky, right-wing lies from another deranged phony. COVID will just go away Nov 4. Open everything. It’s a hoax folks. Now Trump’s endangering national security by cutting Biden off from COVID response and intelligence info. Trump forever! In jail.

- — — — -

Huntingdon Co. — It’s funny how the people who have been calling us snowflakes, whiners and sore losers for the past four years are now claiming fraud and leaving Facebook for Parler. I guess they all need a safe space.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — Socialism is an “unsustainable system,” every country that practiced it failed. A lot of young men died when the United States fought against socialism in World War II. AOC and Sanders call themselves “Democratic Socialists” to candy coat the word “socialist” so it doesn’t sound bad. No matter how you coat it, Socialism is socialism just like Marxism — Leninism.

- — — — -

Kistler Boro. — The only person who caused distrust in this election is Donald Trump. But if our state Senators want to waste time and money investigating the election, I’ll be happy to watch Trump lose again.

- — — — -

Huntingdon Co. — I would like to hopefully encourage a lot of folks, both young and old, to please wear a mask when you’re out around others. I wear mine to help protect myself and others, so, please, be respectful and do your part to get rid of this virus. I know many more are being tested, thus the spike in positive cases, but I’d like to know how many positive cases are actually sick. Thank you, God bess you and have a wonderful day.

- — — — -

Porter Twp. — To the person who called in last week saying good has finally triumphed over evil, do you think it’s good that full-term abortions should be allowed? Do you think that allowing millions of illegal immigrants to enter our country and support them is good while so many Americans live in poverty or below poverty conditions? Do you think it’s good our national news media showed extreme favoritism towards the Democrats while blasting the Republicans? News, in reality, isn’t supposed to show favoritism. I think whoever called that opinion in last week needs to check the dictionary for the meanings of good and evil.

- — — — -

Walker Twp. — Why is it that you Trump supporters claim he worked day and night for our country and he refuses to turn over the reins to the incoming Biden administration which will delay the distribution of the vaccines that are out there. If that’s working to help the American people, I don’t know what you’re smoking.

- — — — -

Juniata Twp. — If you play golf or darts or horseshoes and you lose a game or a series, what do you do? You put out your hand and say congratulations. If you walk away without doing that, what do your friends call you? Wow, you big baby, grow up, do the right thing. That scene is being played out now on a national level, We have someone in the White House who is endangering our lives by not allowing the new president to get started on a plan to fight the virus. President Trump is killing us by refusing to say congratulations and more seriously refusing to release money for the transition so that President Biden can get started on plans to actually help us.

- — — — -

Shirley Twp. — The Mount Union Area School District has done a wonderful job with the way they’ve handled this pandemic. They’ve done so much to make sure the students’ school time is as normal as possible. Thank you to the pandemic coordinator and the administrators for doing a great job. God bless you.

- — — — -

Smithfield — Trump needs medical help. There is something wrong with him. His family evidently did not care enough to help him. Republicans and Trump supporters don’t care either. They go along with his conspiracies. To all the maskless people, I blame you and Trump for the coronavirus deaths. You’re so selfish. You evidently don’t have a loved one you want to protect. Just wear the mask to save our country. Trump supporters, Republicans and people will not wear the mask. I hope you’re ready to meet your maker. God won’t let this go on. He will send Jesus to take us home. Trump lost. He just needs to go home and not destroy our country.

- — — — -

Porter Twp. — It’s too bad so many people have just looked on the bad side of President Trump. They don’t look at the good he’s done for our country, like strengthening our economy and improving our standing in the word and kept communist China away. What did Barack Obama do in his eight years in office? Not much.

- — — — -

James Creek — The first four words in the Bible are, “In the beginning, God.” If you don’t believe that, please don’t read further. God named Isaac and Jesus before they were born. God knew me in my mother’s womb, but now I have the right to kill my baby before it’s born. As long a I don’t hear the baby cry, it’s called abortion. What do they do with the baby? Do they burn it, cremate it or experiment on it? We need the great pill called the fountain of youth pill, we need wrinkle cream, we need vaccines for viruses, but I have the right not to get pregnant. There are many, many choices, pills, patches, implants. Remember, in the beginning God, in the end we answer to God. He is ever forgiving.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — What have our, is it four or six school superintendents we have today, done to consolidate our school situations so our young people are being educated? Rather than get new material, teach them what we have today. God bless America.

- — — — -

Henderson Twp. — I read all those ridiculous remarks in the Opinion Line of those who said people should take their Trump signs down now. For some, they even said it made them sick to see the signs. Why don’t they just go up to the doors of those places and tell the people they’d like to have them take their signs down and see what the response would be?. Because you don’t like the Trump signs, I am going to leave my sign up until 2024 when President Trump again runs and becomes president again. President Trump is and will be the best president we ever had.

- — — — -

Three Springs — The Three Springs Senior Center would like to give a big thank you to the family of George Harper, Kevin, Chris and Kelly, for the generous donation in memory of their father. We enjoyed having him. We would also very much like to thank Linda Wise for the bags of trail mix the Boy Scouts made for all of us. We appreciate all of it so very much and a can’t say thank you enough. It’s so kind and thoughtful. May God bless each and every one of you. Our prayers go out to everyone to stay safe and please be careful.

- — — — -

Smithfield — This past weekend I saw on the back of The Daily News a full page ad. It states an open letter to Rep. Benninghoff and Rep. Corman, paid for a group of concerned PA Democrats. Well, PA Democrats, I know this is tough and it’s very difficult for a group of Democrats to realize the truth. Here’s the truth. Since our president took control four years ago, we’ve had the lowest unemployment for blacks, hispanics and women. Isn’t it fantastic when you take away all the BS what a nation can really do? Any amount of cheating in the election is wrong. It doesn’t matter how often it happens, it’s wrong. Ballots have been pushed through from people who have passed away. There are tens of thousands of ballots that have been seen that don’t have a postmark.

- — — — -

Cromwell Twp. — One thing is for sure, if there’s any meddling in the election, the Democrats will be at the center of it.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — Are not we all going to die? Are not all politicians socialists? Enjoy life and stop complaining and work.

- — — — -

Broad Top Twp. — Did you se the new Biden doll? It’s made in China. Biden gets 50%.

- — — — -

Henderson Twp. — Do you Republicans realize what a can of worms you opened up when you elected Trump four years ago? Can’t you see how he has fired everyone who was good and pardoned all the felons in his circle? You don’t like socialism because you associate it with communism, but you’re willing to stand by and watch him destroy our Democracy and trample our Constitution.

- — — — -

Huntingdon Co. — I wish that we could have more sympathy or condolences to people have lost friends and family during this COVID virus and I’ll tell you something else that would be nice, if people would be obedient to the government, as far as not to lose our freedoms, but to please wear our masks and keep our selves from partying and spreading the virus. If I had my way, I wish that I could take a bunch of these party animals and load them on a bus, take them to a beach and set them afloat on a boat to an island and let them sit there. Maybe if they had to sit there for a while and they all got sick enough, they might straighten themselves up and act normal and be considerate of other people.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — I’m a borough resident and have been watching committee meetings live. I’d like to know why the president doesn’t have more input. He let’s the vice president handle things. The only time the vice president is to handle things is when the president is not available. You were elected to your job, so come and do your job.

- — — — -

Porter Twp. — As a lifetime Republican and a Donald Trump supporter, I’d like to see nothing more than Donald Trump stay in office, but is there anyone who believes a recount is actually legal? Because all the secret ballots we use for mail-in with postmarks on them were probably already thrown in the trash, so the ballots have no identification as to when and where they came from.

- — — — -

McConnellstown — Is it necessary for the school bus traveling Turkey Farm Road to tailgate vehicles, especially when the bus is hauling precious cargo? Please slow down and stop tailgating other vehicles.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — I saw the in the classifieds for the borough council fill-in position for two years. I was upset about the one requirement suggestion which is, must have resume included. this was done before in the borough and the letter requesting the position was all that was needed, no resume. You don’t need a resume, just a letter with why you want to take the position. Things are getting pretty one-sided, don’t you think?

- — — — -

Rockhill — The socialists paid China to produce and spread COVID-19 in the USA and world. They want worldwide communism. Isn’t it a coincidence we have to wear face masks when 90% of them come from China. Does this explain the second wave of the virus. We are made to wear masks, told where to go and not to talk to anyone. We’re also killing our economy. They corrupted the presidential election, allowing millions of illegal voters to vote. Also, dead people have voted, some of them born in 1838. President Trump will prevail.

- — — — -

Saltillo — Since all the socialists have run all of the American citizens out of California, why don’t all you socialists move to California, build a wall, stay out of sight and call your new country little China.

- — — — -

Broad Top Twp. — It’s time to face the facts, Trump wants to be our dictator. Trump lost the 2016 popular vote by almost three million votes and the 2020 popular vote by over five million votes and he still thinks he should still be running our county. The best thing he could to is get on a one-way flight to Russia with Mitch, Barr and Giuliani and stay there. He seems to like dictators, maybe they will treat him better. One thing Trump did do, he converted me from being an independent voter to a never Republican voter.

- — — — -

Alexandria — I hope Trump doesn’t give up on this election. Those Democrats worked on this game for over two years. That’s why they changed all the voting machines, to cheat. They have all those tech people behind them who knew how to fix the machines to change the names from Trump to Biden. That just goes to show you how stinky he will be as president. Now he’s going to put all those losers into his cabinet. We are in for a very bad future. Obama said Trump should just concede and put America first. When did he put America first? He was in office for eight years and he didn’t do anything. Biden didn’t do anything, so why does everyone think he’s going to do something now?

- — — — -

Southern Huntingdon — Mail-in votes by the millions, stop counting votes in the middle of the night, what else did the Democrats do to win? It certainly wasn’t a fair election, that’s for sure.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — I am embarrassed as of right now to be a Republican. I voted for Trump. He lost the election. He needs to sit down and stop bawling around like a 5-year-old having a temper tantrum. We have to get our country together to fight this pandemic and get things running straight. He needs to concede and let our president-elect Biden start getting things done.

- — — — -

Southern Huntingdon — This is to the person from Saltillo not wanting to combine the SHC elementary schools. You should sit in a classroom when it’s 85 degrees outside and 110 degrees inside. Rockhill Elementary was built on a swamp and has mold. Trough Creek and Spring Farms were combined and now they have an overcrowding at Spring Farms. I don’t know how they could distance themselves through this pandemic. I picked up my children at school at Shade Gap one day and they were beet read and flushed and the teachers were dripping wet. Get with the times. I’m behind our school board 100%. They do a great job.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — All the people in this area should stop watching CNN and MSNBC. Those two stations are filling you with one-sided negative and information. They are mostly misinformation and lies. Try watching Fox. They tell the truth.

- — — — -

Henderson Twp. — The Democrats are acting like, oh well, there’s nothing to see here, nothing occurred. Then again, they admit there might have been some questionable actions done. Not allowing Republican observers is against the federal law. Refusing to act on a Supreme Court justice’s ruling in Philadelphia, that’s also against the law. Then you have Dominion, the famous software. In one county alone in Michigan, 6,000 votes were suddenly flipped during a time they said they weren’t counting. That was only one of 47 counties in Michigan that were using it. It was used conveniently in all the swing states. Look into who’s members of the board of Dominion. You’ll find names like Clinton and former Clinton and Obama people, even a member of Joe Biden’s transition team. A little leery. As far as him acting like he’s already president and talking to other countries, that’s also against the law.

- — — — -

Mill Creek — The Democrats thinks they’ve stolen the election. They got away with it. They better hope all those illegal votes and shady shenanigans they pulled that Trump is able to get them overturned, otherwise, guess what? You’re going to have Kamala by spring and we already know she said she’s a socialist/communist and she wants the county that way. What’s going to happen to our foreign programs? The Bidens will get richer so we’re in deep state. In the meantime, the average person is going to be wearing masks for the foreseeable future. And, if Biden wins, Trump can come back and he can go for another four or eight years. The rule states it’s consecutive years, not total. Think about that and then remember you did it to yourselves.

- — — — -

Joe Biden will never actually be president. My father suffered from dementia for years before his death, so I’m sure Joe is in bad shape. You Dems, in fact, voted for Kamala Harris and the elite Democrats.

- — — — -

Huntingdon — Do the Obamas not know when to leave well enough alone? Do they think when Biden, God forbid, gets in the White House, they will also find another place as one of his advisers? A far as Joe Biden, would someone tell him he’s not president until the middle of January when he is sworn in? He has no business stepping over President Trump to get to the task force without President Trump being there, as, again, he’s still the president and he has the right to be there and when the vaccine comes through, we all know Joe Biden is going to be right up front to take credit for it and that’s why he’s pushing so hard to start with his task force as far as the coronavirus. He needs to back off until the time comes that he’s sworn in and God help America if that happens.

- — — — -

Miller Twp. — Fact, the dead voted. Thirty some states used electronic voting from Canada, which came from Venezuela. In fact, some were connected to the internet. Totals were sent to Europe for tally. I guess Maxine Waters was right. We Republicans need to push back. Join the resistance. We voters demand to know what Biden knew about COVID-19 from his Chinese cohorts and when he knew it. Come on Schiff, start your investigation.

- — — — -

Mount Union — How can a football team be bright when it gave up 109 points in two games and only scored seven points? The only thing bright was the field lights and the scoreboard.
