You know why Obama is letting veterans die because they can't get insurance and gets illegals the best insurance? Because he knows veterans won't vote for him and that illegals and welfare people will vote for him at least twice.
The sad thing about the schools today is that the kids are not learning the basic things they need to learn in life. Most of them cannot spell or write. Take away their calculators and computers and they are dumber than doornails.
Perhaps Mifflin County School District should look more about the quality of education they are presenting instead of the buildings. Standards wise its not up to par.
Listening to the politicians running for governor, it seems their theme is to tax the gas companies. It seems good.
This is to the coach: your seniors are all good players. What's your excuse for them not to play in the playoffs that you have to bring up underclassman?
I would like to congratulate the Mifflin County Huskies Junior Varsity Baseball team on a very outstanding record of 16-4. Congratulations to all the boys and coaches. Good job and great season.
In the 2010 census, Mifflin County was ranked next to last in per capita income. Slightly more than $19,000 per person, yet we hired a school superintendent and gave him a $38,000 raise and now he wants to raise our taxes.
I would like to know what idiot is in charge of street sweeping in the Borough of Lewistown. The nights they are supposed to sweep they don't. Last night they are out sweeping during a rainstorm. What are they sweeping, the water? I want my tax dollars to go to good use and not to people sweeping water.
