Letter: Better laws could have preventing shootings

To The Editor, The gun control debate has been torturing the US for months now. The shootings at the Waffle House and Parkland could have been prevented by better laws and restrictions on guns. The Bump Stock should just be plain outlawed and ARs should have heavy restrictions.    Send article as PDF   

Letter: Barrar voted to silence our voices

To The Editor, This past week our current Representative, Stephen Barrar (R-160), voted to silence our voices. Stephen Barrar voted to pick his constituents rather than let the constituents pick their representative. This is not a new strategy to remain in power. This strategy started long ago, and is most glaringly evident by the old 7th district map. In 2011, when Pennsylvania redistricted the...

Letter: Turzai rebuts column on redistricting fight

To The Editor, Your recent editorial regarding the League of Women Voters v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania redistricting lawsuit leaves out some important facts, which your readers should know. Please note that the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed the 2011 Pennsylvania congressional map by a vote of 136-61, with 100 Republicans voting “yes” and 36 Democrats voting “yes.” Passing...

Letter: Thoughts and prayers are not enough

To The Editor, By now you have heard the sad but all too familiar news of another mass school shooting. This is the 18th school shooting of the year and it’s only February.

Letter: Donze’s experience makes the difference in DJ race

To the Editor,   I completely agree with Mike McGann’s recent article, Mr. Iacocca is a very nice guy and community activist but we’re looking to elect our next district justice and need to do so carefully. As a licensed attorney and registered Democrat, I’m most concerned with putting the most qualified candidate on the bench.  Community activism should be applauded on all levels but in...

Letter: Keep ‘Indians’ but embrace true Native Americans’ history

To The Editor, Football season is just starting for the Unionville-Chadds Ford Indians. Parents and coaches shout “Go U” to the players.  Its catchy, but it struck me as odd that “Go Indians” is never heard.  Asking around it seems parents are shy about the school’s mascot. Reading between the “let’s not go there” responses I’ve gotten to the topic led me to believe many...
