Say ‘no’ to Nestle

Thanks for printing Peter Bruckland’s commentary about Nestle wanting to come and build a bottling plant in Benner and Spring townships. We cannot trust their motives as has been pointed out in a book written 10 years ago by Elizabeth Royte. In it Nestle is mentioned close to 90 times in the 248 pages of text. Most of which is not in good terms.

Thanks for important reminder

Three cheers to the lovely young couple celebrating their anniversary at a table next to ours at Gigi’s last weekend. Your “random act of kindness” reminds us that community is about sharing and celebrating our common goals and interests rather than letting our differences isolate us.

Friedenberg’s leadership needed

I enthusiastically support Marc Friedenberg’s candidacy for Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District. Marc’s priorities — jobs, health care, education and our environment, which includes addressing climate change — are in line with my own.

Bigger issues than cows for Congress

The federal debt has exceeded $20 trillion, millions are displaced by war all over the globe, tens of thousands die from opioid overdoses, grade inflation runs rampant at our universities and I read in the CDT a letter by Kathy Pollard (Feb. 3) the humble cow is the issue Congress must address.

Coyotes killing merciless

Coyotes, greatly revered by Navajo herders, who call them “God’s Dog,” are tragically the most persecuted and demonized predator in Pennsylvania. Throughout Pennsylvania, coyotes are being brutally slaughtered in killing contests for money. They have the same DNA as our beloved dogs, and one would go to jail if they killed a neighbor’s dog. It is bad enough they are tortured, but some hunters use hound dogs, which is done by the cruelest, blood thirsty among hunters. Typically hunters will wound coyotes in the leg areas, so the hounds can easily catch up with them, and the hounds tear them apart.

Time to do the right thing

I think this gerrymandering should be settled by at least two state Supreme Courts with equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans. Experience shows us that even the U.S. Supreme Court cannot vote without prejudice. If you use the same guidelines as you did before, the party of choice will always get the unfair advantage. Let’s do it right this time.

Sen. Scarnati has priorities mixed up

Republicans seem to be all talk when they say they stand for state’s rights and small government. Take for example our state Sen. Joe Scarnati, who has seized the crown as king hypocrite with his defiance of the ruling by our state Supreme Court to comply with the redistricting of Pennsylvania’s notoriously gerrymandered congressional districts.
