Times News file photo The statue of Jim Thorpe throwing the discus is the second in a series of statues designed and cast by sculptor Edmond Shumpert of Europa, Mississippi.

It is not often that a case from our area winds up in the Supreme Court, but that is precisely where the issue rests now about whether Jim Thorpe's remains should rest in peace in the borough, which renamed itself in his honor, or whether they should be reinterred in Oklahoma.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

What's wrong with the Republicans in the Legislature on Capitol Hill? Don't they want a reasonable annual budget?

I am a staunch Democrat and was seriously thinking of changing party affiliations.

Me? Not me!

I thought the GOP, Grand Old Party, stood for conservatism, PRO life, not PRO death and good ol' American apple pie and motherhood.

Fellow citizens, let's support our governor the honorable Tom Wolf from a bipartisan supporter.

Andrew S.
