Letters to the Editor

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Dear Editor:

It's rare that a newspaper headline can be considered an understatement. But I think the Times News headline on Nov. 8th "Traffic Woes in Tamaqua" does not even begin to express what our community is going through and is about to go through.

Dear Editor:

To honor Veterans Day, I'm writing to remind readers that Pennsylvania offers a special one-time payment to honor the service and sacrifice of its veterans who served on active duty in the Persian Gulf Theater of Operations from Aug. 2, 1990 – Aug. 31, 1991.

Dear Editor:

As a person who in the past has repeatedly broken the law, I now understand what they are there for. SAFETY. The saftey of you and I and others.

When you obtain a Commenwealth of Penna. state driver's license, you sign a paper TO OBEY THE LAW. That doesn't mean you obey the law sometimes, when you are not in a hurry, or if you are late for an appointment, but ALWAYS!

By SEN. DAVID G. ARGALL (R-29)

Small businesses are the backbone of our state, local and national economy, providing more than half of all jobs across the entire nation. However, starting a new business can be a very complex and difficult process fraught with potential pitfalls around every corner. It is extremely important to ensure upcoming entrepreneurs have the tools and resources they need to succeed in today's economy.

Dear Editor:

I agree with the concept of Occupy Wall Street.

However, there have been to many clashes with authorities.

They must find a way to get rid of the trouble makers if they want to succeed.

Also I would like to know why John Lennon's tooth is worth $31,000 dollars.

For a tooth ? Give me a break ! That is just plain stupid !

The Veterans Administration must get funding needed to help veterans, plus school budgets are being cut.

But we can afford to spend millions on pro sports stadiums and thousands on someone's tooth?

Dear Editor:

I read with great interest about the destruction that truck traffic is causing on the Ninth Street bridge in Lehighton. I am sure when the bridge was constructed the engineers did not imagine an 80,000 pound, tractor and payload crossing the bridge.

Nor did the borough council imagine that volume of traffic from the freight terminal traveling in a school zone or a hospital corridor. However, now the taxpayers are faced with an upgrade to the bridge because of the volume of terminal traffic.

For several weeks, we've observed the disgusting, despicable display of anarchy called Occupy Wall Street. In cities across the U.S. these deranged, unfocused, irrational, ignorant protesters, inspired by Arab Spring and European rioters, are evidently orchestrated by the radical left Maxist-Communist power brokers.

Dear Editor:

Governor Corbett visited Schuylkill County this month and was quoted as saying "everyone wants money, money is tight". It didn't have to be this way, the Corbett way. There was one prominently conspicuous opportunity that was incredibly discounted by Corbett. Instead of harnessing the opportunity that presented itself in the form of the Marcellus Shale, the Governor used his pen to sign the 2011-12 state budget that denied all of us this opportunity.

Dear Editor:

To try to analyze the reasoning behind these protestors in New York City through watching on location interviews with these activist individuals, I noticed most of them were unemployed, on welfare, homeless, college graduates with no job and big debts, people who just like protesting anything with a party atmosphere, egotistical people who wouldn't lower themselves to take a minimum wage job, and even a previously employed welder who quit his job to come participate.
