Please do your part to save wild life and the environment

Letters to the Editor

Vote ‘Yes’ to sell Sherman’s to the CAC

Letters to the Editor

Growing up in Johnstown meant summers at “camp” and occasional trips to Sherman’s for rides, games, popcorn and my favorite, the beautiful carousel with its carved horses, some with real manes and tails. Time passes and changes are inevitable: no longer living in Johnstown, relatives ...

A target with no safe place

Editorials

It is doubtful that ISIS — the Islamic State terrorist organization — was without a leader for more than a few hours after its former head, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, died by his own hand rather than be captured in a raid by U.S. forces in Syria. ISIS already had a succession plan in place ...

Watch out for children
