Bilingually illiterate?
Written by: Frank Essek Cranberry Township
There are approximately 230 million adults in this country. The Department of Education estimates 32 million adults, or 14 percent of the total, are illiterate. An additional 16 million adults cannot read above a 5th grade level. Those 48 million represent 21 percent of all adults living here. Perhaps most frightening of all, 19 percent of high school graduates are illiterate.

Where you’re planted
Written by: Dr. Henry Sinopoli Butler
On Jan. 13, my wife Jocelyn, great nephew John and I attended a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at the Butler City Grand Ball Room. The event was promoted by a nonprofit group hopeful to restore the dilapidated Penn Theater. Many of our local businesses donated items, and baskets of goodies were donated to be auctioned to ensure the success of the event.

Don’t close prisons
Written by: Jason Bloom President, Pennsylvania State Corrections Officers Association, Harrisburg
It’s disappointing the Wolf administration has already made a decision to close two state prisons without any public input whatsoever and is strangely leaving five communities twisting in the wind for several weeks. Closing these prisons will uproot families and damage the local economies in these communities.

Bad pick for Labor
Written by: Kevin Sukits Cranberry Township
Even though I live in county that has a big Republican base, I am a working class union member. I believe Andrew Puzder would be a terrible choice for U.S. labor secretary.

Restore Glass-Steagall
Written by: Todd Gilchrist Zelienpole
Congress can be congruous with our basic rights if we pursue them ourselves. Since 2008, with the Wall Street speculative bubble bailout, there have been resolutions in each new election for a banking separation act premised on the original 1933 Glass-Steagall Act.
