When a new president is sworn into office, Inauguration Day should be a special time for all Americans.

It shows the world the peaceful transfer of supreme executive power to a new, duly elected president.

Last Friday, when Donald Trump became the 45th president, the world also saw how tolerant our Founding Fathers were in allowing the people freedom of expression and the right to peaceably assemble under the First Amendment of the Constitution, even during America’s special day.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

My name is Tristan Stano and I am a resident of Carbon County. I feel that recycling in the state of Pennsylvania should be made mandatory. Recycling benefits our state by providing jobs and decreasing pollution. Yes, it might be time consuming, but it is for the better for our state and our planet.
