Dear Editor:

A half an hour before it was scheduled to begin; I heard that the Tamaqua School board was having a meeting. In this day of budget constraints, they were going to be discussing elementary school music education funding as of the topics.

As a parent of a junior in the band, as well as another child in college who is deep in study of music education and performance, I have an interest in the music program, but no real vested interest in the elementary school funding of music considering the age of my sons.

Dear Editor:

I recently attended a town hall held by Congressman Lou Barletta at the Amvets in Lansford. I am a constituent of Mr. Barletta's, I am concerned about the Ryan budget, and I was aware that Mr. Barletta voted for it, including its provisions to change Medicare into a voucher system, essentially killing the program.

Dear Editor:

The appeal process of the parishioners of the closed/ locked churches, in the Allentown Diocese and beyond, has been a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs/joys and sorrows.

I wish I could give a special award of recognition to all those committee members who did the research and wrote all the appeals.

But then I thought: How could I give an award just to them, when their work was built on the foundation of prayers of so many faithful people, including silent partners across the world?

Dear Editor:

I had a good discussion with the Palmerton Area School Board at their May 3 meeting when I spoke about the difference between pay cuts and pay freezes. There may be people in the community that are willing to pay more taxes, but before I am willing to do anything of the sort, I want to see the superintendent, as well as the administration, take a pay cut.

Dear Editor:

A veteran is someone who, at one point, in his life wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" "up to and including my life." That is an honor and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

There are some of us who were sent into harm's way and others who were sent to do a job. We carried out our missions without thought of our own futures and what it held in store for us!

Now that is an American vet! Please take the time to thank a vet today.

Joe S. Ebeley,

USN-vet

Palmerton
