Letters to the Editor

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Dear Editor,

On July 8, I called in two prescriptions to a chain pharmacy. The next day, I picked them up.

No, I did not check the individual bags before leaving the store.

At home, I found one prescription to be incorrect. It was a drug my husband no longer uses. I called the store, but was told I was liable for the $32 since I left the store without checking, and the drug I ordered was not ready yet. Had that refill been ready, I would have known something was wrong: three instead of two.

Dear Editor,

This in response to the letter "Police investigation should be completed" submitted by L. Ernie Foucault that appeared in the Saturday issue of your newspaper, dated July 19.

First, some facts:

The Pennsylvania State Police was founded in May 1905 by Gov. Samuel Pennypacker, and in the early years of the 20th century was nationally recognized as the premier state police agency, so said Teddy Roosevelt.

Dear Editor,

I am questioning your policy for reporting the truth.

Chris Parker reported that the Panther Creek Cogeneration Plant in Hauto is planning to burn rubber in the form of shredded tires, which will be imported from New York State.

Her main source of information came from an executive of Panther Creek Co., David Hawk. David Hawk is also president of Nesquehoning Council.

Chris reported that a committee was formed by David made up of three Nesquehoning Council members, one who lives across Route 54 and across from the plant.

Dear Editor,

Over the past several weeks, we have watched intently as the World Cup took over the headlines. The drama and excitement of this sport covered the media. We watched and cheered as the Americans played and eventually were eliminated from the finals. The greatest upset was the Brazilian team, which was also eliminated from the finals, and we all cheered as the underdog, Germany, won the World Cup.

Dear Editor:

In answer to Jeff's question, "How do you spend your Sunday?" I'd like to respond with how I would like to spend my Sunday and how I find myself spending my Sunday.

Dear Editor,

The other day, I happened to drive through East Penn Township on my way home. I passed the park along Route 895 at the west end of the river bridge. As I look at the nice job done on the memorial and the property, my mind raced back in time (as it does with old people) to a few years ago.

Dear Editor,

At 9:15 a.m. on March 31, 2014, a man was shoveling snow at St. Peters United Methodist Church in Emerald, Pennsylvania. He was found by a neighbor lying in a pool of blood and rushed to the Lehigh Valley Hospital in critical condition.

We, his parents, were in contact with many churches in the Lehigh Valley to put him on their prayer lists. We were told that his prayer request was prayed around the world. How thankful we were to be told that.

Dear Editor:

With the challenges to the economy and a lack of sustainable job growth, why not have a number of bright entrepreneurs create a business plan to transport young children from the United States to Central America to provide those children with the opportunity to travel through Mexico and into Texas for the long-term benefit of having the United States provide free medical care, education, housing and even opportunities for free or reduced college educations?

Dear Editor,

I have a comment on your column about the fatal crash involving the Nesquehoning police officer.

I'm a retired 28-year veteran of the San Diego Police Department. My career spanned parts of four decades, from the mid-'60s through the mid-'90s, and 10 of those years were spent in the traffic division as a supervisor of accident investigation/reconstruction specialists.

Dear Editor,

No! It's not the invasion of some extraterrestrials from another planet, it's right here on earth.

As you may already know, and I will use the words here as illegals, refugees and foreign nationals are still crossing our borders.

The number, as reported as of April 2014, may be hundreds of thousands who have entered the country already. Some are fleeing from oppression and other reasons. Some that have crossed the border could be terrorists.
