When I was a kid, I lived for summer. Couldn't get enough of those warm, languid days filled with fun in the sun.

Now that I'm a big kid, nothing has changed. I still wait with great anticipation for the sultry, summer days I love.

I still lap up every delicious moment of summer, wishing it would last all year.

I like the fact that I live in Florida where we have a joke about our four seasons: Feels like Summer, Almost Summer, Steamy Summer and Still Summer.


Dear editor,

Please do not insult our intelligence with this ridiculous cartoon implying that the investigations of Hilary Clinton are silly.

Mrs. Clinton was Secretery of State the leading Diplomat of our country with the highest level of security. CIA, FBI, Secret Service and the Armed Forces would all share their most sensitive information with her. She used her own email.

I am in banking and would be fired if I did not subscribe to the security protocol, as would any one in education, medicine or law enforcement.

Tamaqua's summer spectacle was a showpiece of collaboration and the poster child for cooperation.

Dear Tamaqua ... In a New Light was a multimedia walking experience presented by the Tamaqua Community Arts Center on Aug. 4.

The event culminated two years of devotion by 70 volunteers who corralled their own talents and drew on strengths of others.
