Letters to the Editor

Monday, January 30, 2012

Dear Editor:

On Thursday evening, January 5, 2012, I attended the informational presentation by the PA Dept. of Transportation regarding the Tom McCall Bridge project. After attending the meeting I have come to the conclusion that our local and state government leaders and the hired bureaucrats are totally clueless as to the needs of our county infrastructure.

Dear Editor:

Refreshed from his vacation, the first thing we are told is that President Obama wants to start a new bureaucracy and it must be done right now. If the Senate and the House do not go along with him, he will do it on his own we are told.

This President is making our representatives irrelevant and turning our country into a dictatorship. Is this what you want?

Your vote this year will be the most important one in our life so be sure you are an informed voter this year and preserve our freedom.

From a very concerned citizen,

T. Walck,

Dear Editor:

Finally, we have a popular celebrity who is setting a good example for the youth in America. Good role models are so few and far between in this day and age, and I am sure everyone already knows who I am referring to. I want to congratulate Tim Tebow of the Denver Bronco's for all of his accomplishments during his career playing football, and especially for his example in giving thanks to the one who deserves the recognition for blessing him with his talents.

Dear Editor:

In collaboration with this week's annual Right for Life Week in Washington D.C., I joined several of my colleagues from both political parties at a press conference at the state Capitol to support bipartisan legislation on the Women's Right-to-Know Act.

Dear Editor:

Maybe it is too soon for this…or maybe it is too late! As the Penn State community mourns the loss of Joe Paterno and holds high the signs of their support I keep hearing words like 'Idol' and 'Hero' thrown around, and I cringe. Joe Paterno is not a hero.

Dear Editor,

God knows who was wrong in the scandal. Joe, it wasn't you.

Joe Paterno wasn't a cop. Cops follow through on supposed crimes that took place at the school. Paterno related to his boss what was told to him. The bottom line is members of the board or other factions had the responsibility to check further.

Dear Editor:

Some Pennsylvania legislators are attempting to enact a voter suppression bill, House Bill 934, which will disenfranchise as many as 11 percent of eligible voters from voting. You may be one of them if you don't have a current government issued photo I.D.

Sir,

Your article about the Republican committee meeting and chairman election at the New Ringgold Fire Company didn't tell the real story. I have never seen an adult act as unprofessionally as Dave Argall did that night.

Dear Editor,

I am very grateful to the stranger who was shopping at the Lehighton Wal-Mart and had the integrity that is so often missing in today's world. They turned in my purse, with the cash, cell phone and credit cards still intact, to the courtesy desk. In today's world, there is so much bad news. This was good news. Thank you so very much!

Sincerely,

Lois M. Walton

Dear Editor,

Every time I see on TV police officers getting killed, my heart goes out to his and her family. A 22-year New York officer was gunned down while making an arrest. Pictured his three daughters crying their eyes out. Picture a mother hearing gunshots and wrapping her arms around her children who she had picked up from school. While doing so, took a bullet to her head and died. This is only two incidents of so many.
