Letters to the Editor

Friday, December 30, 2011

Dear editor:

As the year 2011 draws to a close I cannot help wonder what resolutions I will make to improve my lifestyle. It seems that every year we all do the same ole stuff. You know – clean the garage, take out the trash, lose weight and be nicer to your spousal equivalent.

Well, I have a different idea for next year. I'll call it "remember the first time." Think about all the happy moments we had in our life with the many first-time experiences we had. You know ... when I first shot my first buck, got my first car (boy, was that a bucket of bolts).

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to our local law enforcement officers and whom ever answered my 911 call on the evening of 12/28/2011. I want to explain my dilemma and what came of it. I answered a knock at my front door around 6:20 p.m. and a young black male claimed he was from direct power and was checking to see if I had recieved my rebate check he told me he needed my PPL bill.

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to all your readers who drive:

I am asking for your help to ban photo traffic enforcement in Pennsylvania.

As a motorist, you know how important road safety is when exercising your inalienable right to freedom of travel.

Photo enforcement exists to raise revenue. It does this by causing more crashes, injuries and fatalities. Money, not safety, is the goal.

Dear Editor:

This is in response to ex-reader Kris Moyer's letter that was published in 11-26-11 newspaper. Let me just say I am grateful he is an ex-reader since he obviously doesn't appreciate a lot of things in life.

First and foremost. Reason 1 is a total contradiction since he says that all Robert (Ski) Sieputowski does is complain. Correct me if I am wrong but that is what you're doing Kris.

Dear Editor:

On December 17, two commentaries - "History will judge role," by Ann McFeatters, and "War's finally over - sort of," by Dale McFeatters - shed light on the absurdity of Obama's claim that our military really is pulling out of Iraq, the fact that the US will have a huge presence in Iraq forever, and the fact that there was no justification for a US invasion of Iraq in the first place.

Dear Editor:

This letter was suggested by Tamaqua Police Department Personnel, who said that I should write this letter to make people aware of a problem at the Five Points in Tamaqua after I told them how I was almost hit 5 or 6 times by a vehicle. This happened at the Five Points intersection in the past two months in Tamaqua.

Dear Editor:

Fellow citizens of Carbon County,

This election cycle, the people of Carbon County voted, overwhelmingly, across party lines to elect Republicans to "right the ship" after years of Democrat control and corruption. County Commissioner Wayne Nothstein and Commissioner- elect Tom J. Gerhard soundly defeated the team of Commissioners Getz and O'Gurek.

Dear Editor:

Please see that this article gets in your paper. I think it is very important to the people, not only in this town of Tamaqua, but every town. It is about the ringing of our church bells.

I wrote an article about it last year and sent it in to all the churches here in Tamaqua. I only heard from one of them, Zion Lutheran Church. I also heard from a lawyer from town who told me I was right in what I said in the article. The church committee from Zion Church said the same thing.

Dear Editor:

If anyone is celebrating Christmas without realizing the true meaning of Christmas as being the most wonderful birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the only Son of God, they shouldn't be partaking in this glorious Holy day at all. If non-Christians want to celebrate a day of gift giving with "Santa Claus" as their main character of preference to represent their holiday. They should choose an alternative day of the year rather than December 25th.

Dear Editor:

Having been born in 1950, in the Allentown area, life was very different as compared to now. One of four brothers and a sister, my parents were very loving, they taught us right from wrong and good from bad. Life was simple and a lot easier than things are now. We grew up watching Ed Sullivan and Art Linkletter and when things were real big news Walter Cronkite would tell the world what was, as he did when John F. Kennedy was shot and killed on that sad day in Texas.
