Letters to the Editor

Monday, January 30, 2012

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.

Editor,

Once again it's that time of the year when Publisher's Clearing House is going to make someone a millionaire!

Judging by their advertising, that means "hurry and get your entry in or you may forfeit your winnings!"

For many years I entered the contest, mainly because the product I requested was something I could use or needed, not hoping or thinking I would be chosen for the "big one."

Sir:

The Towamensing Soccer Club would like to thank the Horsehead Community Development Fund for their generous philanthropic and altruistic monetary grant that will benefit our nonprofit and volunteer driven club.

In October, the TSC Soccer Board applied for a monetary grant to help offset the costs of running an expanding and growing soccer club. The Horsehead

Development Fund provided TSC with a matching challenge grant. If we could raise $2,500 dollars, they would match it.

Dear Editor:

I just got done listening to Rick Santorum's address following the Iowa Republican caucus.

I gotta admit, the guy can give a speech. If you didn't know who he was, you might think of him as one of those salt-of-the-earth, grass-root, regular guys that you could identify with. He speaks with a sincerity that differs from the usual canned, game show host swill that guys like Mitt Romney dish out by the metric ton.

Dear Editor:

One thing you almost have to respect about the Republicans: They have no shame about using their power to bludgeon opponents into submission. Using their right-wing radio and TV attack henchmen to broadcast their positions, they have been extraordinarily effective in creating a united bloc.
