Reusable bags: Make it a habit

Have you noticed this sign in the windows of Newtown Borough businesses?

Wrightstown Friends Meeting, like many faith communities, has been looking at how we can put our testimony of stewardship for the Earth into action.

Reforming juvenile justice system benefits kids, communities

We are youth advocates who were incarcerated at the ages of 14 and 15. We don’t want the juvenile legal system to do to others what it did to us and our peers.

Separate ideas from identity

Running along Creamery Road in New Hope, I couldn’t help but notice a kaleidoscope of different campaign signs that lined my route: Trump, Biden, Fitzpatrick, Ehasz — all names peculiarly positioned above the election year 2024.

Ah! The political noise and chatter that precede the November elections are already growing to a bothersome level and will only get worse as time goes on.

The July 11 letter arguing that abortion is not murder because “a human does not come into being until it is independent of that from which it came” is lacking in understanding of logic, law and science.

Send 65 F-16s to Ukraine

I am writing to express my strong support for the United States supplying Ukraine with 65 F-16 fighter jets. As a U.S. Air Force officer veteran, I firmly believe that this strategic move is essential for Ukraine to achieve air superiority over Russian forces, ultimately leading to a cessation of hostilities and the return of imperialist Russian troops in defeat.

The petals of the tulip poplar are strewn across the forest floor, their orange and tawny yellow hues mirroring the stormy sky I glimpse snatches of through openings in the now-full canopy.

Come out July 24 and say “No Buckingham warehouse”

If you’ve driven anywhere in Buckingham lately there’s no doubt you’ve noticed the hundreds of bright red “No Warehouse” signs planted in yards and intersections.

I returned from the shore and picked up the July 11 Bucks County Herald to learn about local news only to find several Letters and Guest Opinions about abortion and Democratic Party rhetoric.

I was at a rally over the 4th of July weekend in Doylestown and heard Ashley Ehasz, candidate for PA Congressional District 1 representative, speak about women’s right to choose, reproductive health, abortion healthcare access…freedoms no longer guaranteed.

Did you know that the only time schools are legally required to inform the public about a weapon incident involving a student is when it results in expulsion?

Vote Democrat. This is bigger than Biden

Frankly, when judging someone who is essentially applying for the job of President of the United States, is a debate an accurate measure?

In November we will go to the polls to vote — not just for President, but also for U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Here in Bucks County, voters will also be choosing 10 representatives to the Pennsylvania Legislature.

Having recently celebrated my 100th birthday, I have taken the time to reflect on many things. Although we recognize July 4, 1776 as the date our Independence was declared, it wasn’t until June 21, 1788 that New Hampshire became the ninth and last necessary state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby making the document the law of the land.

You may recall President Biden saying on television, soon after what he called the “outrageous” Dobbs decision, which held there is no right to an abortion contained in the U.S. Constitution, that we as a nation need to “codify Roe v. Wade as soon as possible.”

I am a 5th year undergraduate in the architecture department at the Rhode Island School of Design.

The average American has a distorted view when it comes to the economy. Despite noticeable improvements and numerous accomplishments by the president and his administration, polls continue to show that the majority of Americans disapprove of how President Biden is handling the economy.

Scraping Doylestown’s history

There are times when life treats you with a piece of knowledge about your hometown and you tuck it away, unless it pops up in your memory bank at an unexpected moment.

As the mother of two daughters in high school/college sports and competitive Irish Dance, I can attest to the value youth sports and fair competition have on young women.
