If people were willing to spend their energy on their political outrage on something positive, I think we would be in a much better position.
Why doesn't PennDOT put some of this planning money to putting black-top on some of these bad roads? Like the Oregon Trail a.k.a. Honey Creek Road.
A lot of people who are constantly on the open line and making complaints, why dont you get off your butt instead of complaining? Get out and do something.
I would like to thank the couple at Vince's Pizza on Friday, June 27, who picked up the dinner tab for a mother and son. It was done anonymously, and you made us have an unbelievably good day.
I'm glad the Mifflin County School district sold them four schools last year so that our taxes would get higher.
At one time everyone was allowed to have their own opinion on issues, but not anymore. If you don't agree with abortion, you are against women's rights. If you don't believe homosexuality and the gay lifestyle, you are a homophobe. And heaven forbid you are against Obama, then you are considered a racist.
I think it is time for the people in Mifflin County and the voters to revolt against this school board. I am concerned for the elderly with this tax increase. It is time to get these people out and put new people in.
