THUN­DER / ENLIGHTNING

The Republican Herald - - COMMENTARY -

It’s hard to be­lieve that the peo­ple from Tamaqua would stand up for that man. The town should be em­bar­rassed.

Cres­sona I am as­sum­ing you mean the pres­i­dent of the school board. He con­sid­ers him­self in­no­cent of all charges, but his vic­tims claim he’s guilty. Ap­par­ently, he isn’t em­bar­rassed and has no re­morse?

• Con­grat­u­la­tions are in for Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN, for his ac­com­plish­ment of mak­ing CNN the top fake news net­work, not only na­tion­ally, but in­ter­na­tion­ally as well. That was quite a task.

• To all the county com­mis­sion­ers: I read Schuylkill County is re­ceiv­ing $6.7 mil­lion for fix­ing bridges and road­ways. Are you go­ing to re­im­burse for ev­ery car reg­is­tra­tion? I will wait for my re­bate check.

I hope you don’t hold your breath, but with the $6.7M and the measly five bucks per reg­is­tra­tion, we should see some smooth driv­ing this fall. And if not, shame on the com­mis­sion­ers.

• I have a ques­tion for you left-wing gun con­trol ad­vo­cates. You want to raise the min­i­mum age to 21 across the na­tion like Florida did. My ques­tion to you is, what do you tell an 18-year-old who is serv­ing in the armed forces? When they come home and want to buy a hunt­ing ri­fle, are you go­ing to tell them they are not old enough or qual­i­fied? Are you kid­ding me? These school tragedies are avoid­able. We have laws on the books that aren’t be­ing en­forced.

Shenan­doah Sen­si­ble back­ground checks and bet­ter fam­ily and friends’ in­put. If you can vote and die on a for­eign bat­tle­field, you should be able to pur­chase a gun. It’s not the age, it’s the men­tal con­di­tion.

• To Cres­sona: What do Pottsville, Wil­liamsport and Wil­son have in com­mon? They made no im­pact in the state play­offs. Let’s call it like it is. Pottsville was ousted early from the state play­offs as usual, but ev­ery year they dom­i­nate the Schuylkill League. I have no ax to grind, I’m just telling it like it is.
