Why does Mount Union spend $500,000 a year on a police force when they can’t even afford to tear down blighted houses? And, by the way, when do we get a drug sweep? There hasn’t been one here in years. No wonder there are so many drugs on the street.

Some of the people voted, some of the people didn’t. Some of the people kept their job. Some of the people left. But all the parking meters have stayed in Huntingdon. They never left. How long will they be there?

Trump promises: 1. You'll have better, cheaper health care than Obama Care. 2 I'll be too busy working for you to take vacations. 3 I'll rebuild our infrastructure. 4. I won't touch Social Security or Medicare. 5. Mexico will pay for the wall. 6. I'll negotiate lower prescription drug prices…

To the guys who attended the Alexandria Fire Co. gun show this past Saturday, shame on you for not being at the Veterans Day parade in Huntingdon. If it wasn’t for our military serving our country to help keep us free, you wouldn’t even have the privilege to look at a gun. Again, shame on you.

I guess everyone in Pennsylvania loves paying higher taxes and paying for illegal aliens because how they voted says it all.

I'm liking the new website. Please keep all the obituary information for someone available once the free preview goes away. Other newspaper websites have full obituaries for non-paying customers to view. Thanks!

The election is over. Now the candidates made campaign promises. Make sure you hold your candidate accountable for the promises they made. Do everything you can do to make this a better world in which to live.

Of course boaters on Raystown Lake are going to say it's too crowded. It's the same as asking people if they want less traffic on the roads, shorter lines at the grocery store and smaller crowds at the movie theater. People are always going to want more space for themselves. That doesn't mea…

For Thanksgiving, I am glad Donald Trump is our president.

I think all politicians need to remember what the Bible says that the wage of sin is death.

Funny, no trucks ran through Wood Township during trick-or-treat from 6-8:50 p.m. Why? They used Trouts Road. It should be like that all the time! Wood Township Supervisors were actually thinking of the kids on that one. Too bad they are not thought of on other matters, like the playground e…

Trump is afraid of everything. He has people firing other people. He is afraid to do it face-to-face. It just goes on and on. Today he is afraid to answer questions from real news reporters. I don’t understand what people see in him.

This is a sidewalk issue for safety on Main Street and Shirley Street, across from the First National Bank. It used to be a doctor’s office, it is owned by someone else now. There are some really bad sidewalks there. They have sunk and there are 6-inch drops where someone could fall and get …

There has been a car that I assume is broke down on 14th Street and has been sitting there for weeks with a white bag hanging out the window. Why hasn’t this been ticketed? If it is broken down, why hasn’t it been moved off the street? I always thought you only had a certain amount of time t…

If the 14th Amendment is squishy, so is the second.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone involved in the Nov. 3 annual Veterans Day Parade. Numerous bands, floats and especially representation of our veterans was truly an uplifting sight. It’s always one of the best parades of the year.

I am a class member of 1969. I was in the service during the Vietnam War. I had a lot of classmates and friends who went to Mount Union Area High School who were also in Vietnam. I’m ashamed to say that there is nothing being done at the high school. The American flag is not being flown 24/7…

Isn’t it amazing that grease always rises to the top. Now that the Democrats have a little bit of say, we’ll get to see Trump’s tax forms. Which is really going to open up a lot of people’s eyes. His buddy and the president have been laundering money his whole life. You people don’t realize …

We, as taxpayers for Huntingdon Borough, would like to know why the lights under the arch have been out for some time. Could you please let the public know what the problem is? They were working after flood. This is a safety hazard.

The Halloween parade is always heavily attended, but when it comes to the Veterans Day parade, attendance is extremely low. If it weren’t for our military, you may not have the freedom to enjoy that other parades. So unless you had an emergency or plans made months ago, you should have been …

I’m wondering with the weapons and everything that is confiscated from people by the court system or Game Commission. What happens to them? They’re supposed to be sold at public auctions in Harrisburg. So far, I haven’t seen anything from Huntingdon County in the auction at the Farm Show Complex.

I would like to thank Hoss’s of Huntingdon for doing the fundraiser for Warner and for the staff for doing an excellent job. I also want to thank everyone who attended in support of Warner and buddies. Thank you.

This is to remind all Moose Lodge 223 members to vote from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, Saturday, Nov. 10, on the smoking issue at the lodge. Let’s all vote no smoking and bring our club into the 21st century. Only 16 percent of the population smokes according to national surveys. Why should 16 …

The hypocrisy of the left is startling to say the least. The more they accuse the right of being fascist, the more they should have to watch a replay of their actions. You cannot instill your opinions on others by making demands!

The Republicans and conservative Christians are working on a new edition of the Bible. They are taking out all references to compassion. Matthew 14:13-21 is now blank. It will be a thin book.

The elections are now over. I believe everyone needs to move on and become united and not divided and strive to do what needs to be done. That is to become all Americans.

This is for the state representative who wants to hold a constitutional convention to figure out why young people are leaving the state. I can tell him why. It's because outside of the larger cities, this state is backwards and close-minded. Women, minorities and LGBTQ individuals are discri…

Forbes Road is now paying substitutes $120 a day. I can get as much working at Sheetz as I can being a substitute teacher in Huntingdon County. We substitutes should all not work between Thanksgiving and Christmas in Huntingdon County. Districts might rethink giving us such poor pay. For the…

Did anyone else have problems with their absentee ballots? I know two people who haven’t received theirs. I wonder if they belong to the wrong party.

I think the people in Todd Township shouldn’t worry about the four-legged pigs in the township. I think they should worry more about the two-legged pigs in Huntingdon.

The Three Springs Senior Center would like to thank Jack and Wanda Lane for their delicious pumpkin cupcakes. They were so good and we welcome you anytime to try out your new recipes on us. Also, we would like to thank Deb and Sandy for the apple-walnut cake and the Halloween treats they gav…

To the fellow who is lamenting that he can't vote; You didn't mention that you're a felon who lost your right to vote. Appeal to your governor for clemency.

When is the United States going to go Democratic with their democracy and not Republican. In a democracy, everyone votes on every bill and that would put most of the politicians out of business. I also wonder why Pennsylvania can pay their legislatures per diem. I think it is $300 and they d…

There are still several pole lights out in the borough. When are these going to be fixed?

I think it is time to remove the preferences from civil service employment opportunities. From what I understand, adding 10 points to a test applicants score was originally only for war veterans who lost their jobs while at war. It was then expanded to minorities whether racial, gender or ha…

If anyone is interested, we have a new race track in Huntingdon. It doesn’t cost anything and there is no need to rush to get a parking place. Just come to Cold Springs Road and you will see the race in progress. The borough cops don’t seem to care, they just turn their head. This has been r…
