HARRY HARTMAN of the GETTYSBURG TIMES...you have been tested! My response.
It is a shame you resorted to threats. I would have been willing to pay for a full page ad to make up for the illegible ad on Wednesday that you admitted to reducing the font with. Your threats only make me look even better. So PLEASE run your attack via front page ad whenever you are ready. We will look forward to it. Should I send you a nice picture to go with it? Hey, I might as well take advantage of this free publicity!!! I am not sure if the one in the last ad is my best side. LOL!
Juliana
HERE IS THE FULL RESPONSE FROM THE OWNER HARRY! HE ADMITTED TO REDUCING THE FONT! The ad I approved was legible!
Juliana:
I am sorry that you were disappointed in the way the ad reproduced but there was a great deal of text included in your ad and to make everything fit in the space, we had to reduce the font size. I will also tell you that the way items look on a bright white computer screen is very different from the way they look on a 60-bright recycled newsprint.
Your ad was a political advertisement and by law should have been paid for in advance. I trust local people and give them the benefit of the doubt on payment even on political ads. You will pay for the ad immediately or I will file a complaint with the state election board and the local election office against you. You approved the ad in writing and we have that email. If you do not think a front page story written by me about you not paying your bill does not hurt your campaign for mayor, test me. If you do not think I will take you to the magistrate for not paying me what you and then me writing a front page story about you losing in court will hurt your campaign test me. Pay me what you owe me.
As a strong and vocal conservative Republican who personally supports all true Republican candidates and elected officials, I would like to know what proof people have to think the Times has become a left leaning newspaper. We cover local news and leave national news to MSM.

Mikie Sherrill broadcast this thirteen and one-half minute video on social media on Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021.

I am wondering if the GT would be interested in an interview with me, a blind author of 5 books to date. My FB page is Kevin Turnbaugh, Blind Christian Author, and my website is https://www.timewitnessing.com. The world of writing and publishing books is hard enough, but then add in lack of name recognition and being blind, and the difficulties are at least doubled. My wife and I are subscribers to the GT, and are impressed with your coverage of news within Adams County, and outside the area. I thought I might utilize this coverage to get my name, and my books made known to the area. I can be contacted by phone at 717-624-7743, or via email (preferred method) at [email protected].
blizzard on its way to gettysburg within 80hrs or less. snowfall 18-24 inches with possible high winds and thundersnow.
The Gettysburg Times is simply a sounding board that does not respect or condone the ethics and morals of true patriots. This paper continues to encourage animosity between liberals and conservatives by posting fiction, not facts, regarding current events.
The opinions noted in the letters to the editor are just that, opinions, and not worth the paper that they are printed on.

I will not longer subscribe to a newspaper that does not support the morale values that this country was founded upon.
sad the Times ran an ad for the Adams County GOP aka fascists - guess they just lack integrity - DONNIE lost
