:-)“I see the borough website is so out of date that Jennifer Felty, Leslie Givler and Ed Kazlauskas are still listed as employed by the borough. Nice job, Chris. Hopefully, when you are replaced, the new person will remove your name from the site in a more timely manner.”


:-)“Finally, a true and insightful piece about the situations facing Middletown Police. Thank you, Mary Hiester, for your letter. It is a shame that one of the few sensible people to sit in council chambers now has to make a difference as a member of the public. Current council is a disgrace. Maybe the newcomers will be able to sort out the mess of McNamara and his crew.”


:-(“Remember, all McNamara needed to get on council was 115 people foolish enough to vote for him. Get out and vote the bums out!”


:-(“Dear Sound Off: To the irresponsible ‘kid’ with passengers driving a little white car on Hillsdale Road on Monday, Nov. 4th at 4 p.m. heading toward Middletown, I just wanted to let you know that your bag of eggs that you (the driver) threw at my car made quite a mess. I hope you are happy. It was just fortunate for us all that I didn’t have time to swerve to miss it or you may have been in an accident. Maybe you will think before doing such a stupid stunt again and I assure you that if it happens a second time to me you can count on me turning around and following you and calling the police at the same time. And then we’ll see who has the last laugh.”


:-)“I wanted to thank Penn State Harrisburg for helping with this year’s election in Middletown.”


:-(“So tell me when did the borough secretary become the pinnacle of integrity and ethics?”


:-(“Penn State a good neighbor? Please, just look at what is going on in Eagle Heights. An entire neighborhood (albeit, not fancy by any means) destroyed by the money that is thrown around by these outside developers. Go up on a Friday or Saturday night and watch all the disrespectful, drunk, and rowdy college kids walking around through people’s yards drinking beer, yelling at 2 a.m., acting like pure idiots. Watch the cars speed up and down Lawrence and Wood streets, run the stop signs, peel out and so on. Now you want to build more includings more in the borough itself by the cemetery? Why don’t you get input from the police that have to deal with the parties, the disrespectful college kids, and all the paperwork and overtime that goes into this ‘college community’? When you put everything together it’s not worth it. At best the police departments in the area have two to 3 officers out at a time and if all three are dealing with the dozens of rowdy college kids, what happens to the rest of the area not being covered or being patrolled? If the leaders of the township or borough would be smart, they would annex these apartment complexes to the Penn State Police. They don’t do anything else anyway. It’s all their students causing or at least allowing this ruckus to happen. Let the township and borough police handle the business that the taxpayers deserve. Let the campus cops handle their problems rather than hide on the campus.”


:-)“Brooks and Arnold are gone. And so is Rhen. Next will be McNamara, Sullivan and Putric. Your days are numbered.”


:-)“GOOD MORNING, WE DID IT, MR. JIM CURRY WON THE MAYOR SEAT IN MIDDLETOWN. THE YOUNGEST MAN TO WIN THE MAYOR OFFICE TO DATE. I TOLD HIM IN THE BEGINING THAT HE WOULD WIN IF HE GOT OUT TALKING WITH THE PEOPLE OF MIDDLETOWN. HE IS NEW WITH FRESH IDEAS, A NEW LOOK. A BETTER PLAN FOR MIDDLETOWN. TO ALL OF YOU HATERS - A CHANGE IS COMING FOR THE BETTER OF THE TOWN. WAY TO GO MR. CURRY. I TOLD HIM FROM THE START HE REMINDS ME OF A YOUNG JOHN F. KENNEDY. I LOVE KENNEDY, NOW I LOVE MR. JIM CURRY. GREAT, GREAT JOB. HE GOT TALKING WITH PEOPLE, NOW THAT IS A MAN OF THE PEOPLE. YES JIM, YES. MIDDLETOWN IS ON THE MOVE. FROM DEACON CORTEZ JACKSON JR.”


:-)“I would like to thank the borough for picking up the leaves from East Emaus St.”


:-)“Congratulations to all the new council members and new mayor of Middletown. It is time for change and for Middletown to move forward into responsible financial management. The first item to be addressed is to locate the Borough money and how much is there left from the electrical contract buyout. If any stealing has occurred charges should be drawn against those people. And what happened to all the overcharged electrical bills? Where did all that money go? The second item to address is the forum at the council meetings. The new mayor should establish a new code of conduct at the council meetings and enforce them. Any rudeness and inappropriate conduct should not be allowed. That person should be asked to leave council meetings, council member or not. Middletown voters did a good job at polls. The number of incompetent council members is dwindling but we are not done yet. More self-centered unqualified council members need voted out. The voters of Middletown are taking back their town one election at a time. Good job voters.”


:-|“Before voicing complaints in ‘Sound Off’ perhaps contacting management for clarification would be the adult way to handle problems. Stop pointing fingers and blame if you don’t have the backbone to speak with the appropriate people.”


:-(“The political three-ring circus of crooks and liars. Maybe we need a King and a Queen. These clowns in office and in BOTH parties need to go.”


:-)“Eat more fruit and vegetables, lean meats and whole grains. That is a nice thought but how do I double my food budget to cover this thought? These items are so high priced. It’s cheaper to eat the bad stuff and it shouldn’t be that way. Is a dollar menu or salad bar cheaper? To support a whole family to eat healthy is expensive. Growing it all myself isn’t an option so I guess my plea will fall on deaf ears.”


:-|“I see after the election how many republicans are rinos.repub.licans in name only. True republicans would have voted for Givler, Arnold, Brooks, Cleland.”


:-(“People are mad the debt the federal government has. We in Middletown voted people in office that don’t care about the debt we have here.”


:-)“Thank you Arnold, Brooks for a job well done. We cannot help the people in this town voted out of ignorance. Till people realize the borough has a major debt the town will continue to vote for their friends.”


|:-(“The Press And Journal is the most unfair paper I ever seen. You are ruining this town. Take a note from Fox News how to be fair and balanced.”


:-)“Keep fighting for the town Mr. Louer.”


:-)“Cleland, you lost, it’s over. Don’t listen to Maglone anymore.”


:-(“I guess our square will not get turned into a military square now. Mrs. Arnold your energy to make this town a better place to live was so nice to see. Thank you so much for the wonderful job with the Christmas in the Park and fantastic Labor Day weekend events.”


:-(“I did not realize how many idiots live in this town. Mr. Brooks and Mrs. Arnold voted to drop our electric rates in half, have not raised taxes in two years and you voted them out of office. Mr. Givler would of been a good mayor.”


:-)“Mr. McNamara, please continue on getting things done for the better of Middletown.”


:-)“Congrats Mr. Kappenstein. Now please go into council with an open mind and do not let Maglone tell you what to do from behind the scenes. I did not support you but I do believe you are a good guy and will vote with an open mind.”


:-)“I heard 18 percent of the people voted in town. What a shame.”


:-(“Couregon, not talking or cooperating with the Press And Journal, shows his immaturity, ignorance, and unprofessionalism.”


:-)“18 years old and just voted for the first time! I live in the 2nd ward, and my votes won!”


:-)“Anne Einhorn is a very smart woman. She will help turn this sinking ship around. We are all pulling for you. Good Luck!”


:-)“Lots of nasty defamation during these elections! Hope the winners prove the doubters wrong!”


:-|“Gordon on school board and now Anne on council. The Einhorn family is taking over.”


:-)“Congrats to Ben Kap and Anne Einhorn!”


:-)“Very please with results of election 2013, especially council ward 2!”


:-(“Not happy - MOVE!”


:-|“It is a sad world we live in if all individuals can do is complain and degrade others for nothing more than their own selfish satisfaction. Perhaps turning that energy into something positive would be a better way to spend ones time. A long look in the mirror may help you determine what can be done to improve something instead of being vindictive and causing drama for others.

:-)“Congrats! Middletown football team, new Head Coach Meyers, and the football staff. You ALL did a great job this year. Thank you for working so hard, and for bringing back pride and school spirit to our town. Wishing you continued success next year.”{jcomments on}
