What’s the difference?
Written by: Reid Campbell West Sunbury
I was driving home from a meeting that I was invited to attend at a local volunteer fire department. The topic was approaching the municipalities that they provide services to for the placement of a fire tax in those municipalities.

Fair board decision
Written by: Diane Hines Bishop Butler
I am writing in response to the preposterous decision of the Butler County Fair board of directors to ignore the recommendations of the state Department of Agriculture and not require rabies vaccinations for all livestock that will participate in this year’s Big Butler Fair.

Two-faced Trump
Written by: Patrick May Butler
Donald Trump ran for president as some kind of ersatz populist, appealing to the confusion and concerns of a large constituency of hard working Americans demanding change.

Peerless care
Written by: Tammy Hassler Butler
Recently my family suffered a significant loss: our mother and grandmother, Shirley McKinney. It was a very difficult time for our family. Each day it seemed like we faced yet another challenge. But with help of a very special place we would have never made it through this journey. The very special place I am speaking about is Life Butler County.

Twisting scripture
Written by: John Dollar Butler
Jean Ignatuk’s letter (“Immigration legacy” Feb. 26) has twisted Matthew 25:31-46, to a wrong meaning. The verses here speak of eternity and judgment for the ones who treated Jesus’ people, his Jewish brothers, as to good or bad. Read the footnotes of a good translation.

Addicts’ choice
Written by: Stephen Cowan Butler
Kudos to Jim Harff for his letter “Enabling users” (March 14). I think it is sad the way some people are treated. I totally agree with his assessment of the issue. While addiction may be considered a disease, it is a totally voluntary disease, chosen on purpose.
