Settle the score
Attorney Stuck's Dec. 7 letter to the editor about Vinny Clausi is the work of a vindictive man desperate to settle the score. Stuck ran for district attorney several times and was rejected by the voters every time. Now Stuck is making a living defending clients like the two former deputy sheriffs who were given the public's trust and violated this trust. Stuck has no credibility with the public.
Don't let me down
Vinny, don't you let these detractors get you down. You continue to keep doing the outstanding job that you are doing and may the good Lord bless you and give you good health.
To the boys who egged my house on the weekend, the yolks on you. You were seen doing it. Tell your parents to wait for a knock on the door.
This is in regards to the City of Shamokin giving that raise to Mr. Bartos. I am not against a raise, but I think it a problem after they just went to court to raise our taxes 5 mills. I hope the people remember this and get out and vote next year. We need change.
Can't you people see how belligerent and egotistical Clausi is? Does anyone care how vengeful and loud Clausi is? His threatening tactics are well known in the county and yet your paper continues to cheer him.
I took Rabbittransit to my doctor's appointment at the Ressler Center. I waited an hour and a half for transportation after I was done. I had to call to ask them where they were. This is getting ridiculous.

Attorney Greg Stuck's questioning of Vinny Clausi's intelligence is offensive. I question Mr. Stuck's intelligence after reading his ridiculous letter. Vinny came to this country with nothing. He built two successful businesses and became a self-made millionaire.
Plug our meters
Now that Shamokin has a budget and an increased salary for our city clerk, how are our parking meters doing? They cost $100,000, but I never see any reports on the revenue.
Fire them all
Giving somebody a $9,000 raise in Shamokin is the stupidest thing I ever heard of. They should fire every board member, mayor and all of them who voted for that. Next year, they won't have any money to pay for it. Don't they know his job was to get grants, even if he did a good job? Frog's take: You can do the "firing" by voting. City council members and the mayor are elected, not hired.
Throw them out
I'd like to thanks Rozinskie, Strausser and Snyder for the great Christmas present they gave the taxpayers of Shamokin. A $9,000 raise and the man doesn't even live in Shamokin. They ought to be thrown out of office. Come on, people, stand up.
Vinny Clausi came here from Italy with nothing. He at least helped the people around the Shamokin area. He's not lazy. If I would ask him tomorrow to put a new roof on my house (I'm ill), he would do it. He has his good thoughts and his bad thoughts, but at least he's working hard.
This is in response to "Look busy" in Tuesday's paper: I am a hard-working mother; I work 40 hours a week. But, in the end, it's not enough, so I get a WIC check and I have an EBT card. I deserve what I get and I pay my taxes.
May our thoughts and prayers be with the family of the Seal Team 6 member who died in the rescue mission to get the American physician. May he rest in peace. Please accept the thanks of a grateful nation.
Stuck is honest
In regards to Phyllis Lippay's letter about Gregory Stuck: You need to do more research before you talk big. Mr. Stuck is an honest, good man. He only quoted what he saw. Vinny is a successful businessman. I wish he would give up the $66,000 he earns as a commissioner so he can take care of himself. I'll pray for him.
