Dispose of items responsibly

The bulk waste collection service is a great benefit as it allows all of us to dispose of items in a responsible manner. Kudos to those who scavenge the neighborhoods and are able to recycle or repurpose those items.

Balance needed

We are experiencing the Stanford Prison Experiment on a national scale. That experiment showed how some people, not ready leadership or empowerment, can easily become cruel and despotic. Evidence of this is that President Donald Trump brings out the worst in his supporters.

Options available to treat hemlocks

I am writing to my neighbors who may have hemlock trees in an effort to help save the trees. I walk the neighborhood daily and have noticed many hemlocks in West College Heights appear to be infected with hemlock wooly adelgid, which is treatable.

Veterans deserve to be honored

Who really fought in the Vietnam War? This is the question that future generations will ask when they take the time and go see the Miles Township Veterans Monument. The monument does show every other war and conflict but Vietnam. Instead, it wrongfully classifies everyone as Vietnam-era veterans. There’s a vast difference between the two. A Vietnam veteran actually was there and most likely saw combat and was in harm’s way the whole time. The Vietnam-era veteran could have served anywhere in the world, except Vietnam, during the time of the Vietnam War.

A profound moment

My wife and I had the privilege of attending the National Day of Prayer meeting in your area. We, like many other Americans, have a deep concern about the condition and future direction of our country.

Health bill is ‘heinous’

The recent House vote on the revised health care bill was a heinous bit of unvetted legislation that would have taken as many as 24 million Americans off insurance and left Americans with a wide range of pre-existing medical conditions in a whole new state of precarity.

How one family in rural Pa. is fighting Sunoco pipeline construction

The Gerhart family lives on 27 acres in the rural town of Huntingdon in central Pennsylvania. When they were told Sunoco Logistics was constructing a pipeline on their land and they had no choice in the matter, they responded with a tree sit as three acres of 80-year-old forest was razed in March of 2016. This spring, as Sunoco continues construction on the Mariner East 2 pipeline, the oil company will be met with a banner hanging high above the cleared trees that reads “You shall not pass.”
