Dear Editor:

This letter addresses Governor Corbett's recent petition to the Federal Government to assist the State of Pennsylvania in addressing the shortage of funds to continue the Adult Basic Health Care program.

I thought the Governor ran on the principle of smaller government, states rights and making the tough choices of controlling the state and federal deficit. Why is he asking the current administration to intercede on behalf of this now financially exhausted program?

This letter had laid on my desk for a few years buried in the mess - I mean lost among all the important documents I've amassed.

Every winter for quite a few years each time I cross the bridge I get angry when I see some clown has colored the ice and each year the Bozo's make the front page for doing it.

To me it's nothing more than graffiti. The good thing is, it does not last and hurts no one other than raising my blood pressure.

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

Domestic Violence Service Center wishes to extend its heartfelt gratitude to all the businesses, groups and individuals who so generously donated toys, personal care items, gift cards, bedding, food and monetary gifts so that the women and children in our shelter and other programs could have a brighter holiday season. The outpouring of support and generosity from the community was especially meaningful because it enabled us to provide a gift and a smile for each of the children and women housed in our shelter.

Dear Editor:

After his election the American people have spoken as to how the congress should direct their efforts. A majority has spoken but did the Obummer lawmakers listen?

* Our Secretary of Treasury warned congress that NOT raising the nation debt could have catastrophic consequences. When our voice was heard 92.9 percent said we should reduce spending before putting every American taxpayer further in the hold.

Dear Editor:

On Monday, Dec. 20, the Lansford Food Pantry opened its doors at their new location - Trinity Lutheran Church, 104, E. Abbott St., Lansford. What a fabulous improvement over their former location. Not only was the building comfortable and warm, but the operations to serve the public seemed to much improved.

Dear Editor:

My heart is filled with joy as the parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (OLMC), Nesquehoning go forward with the Diocese of Allentown in the reopening of their church.

It's been a long and painful journey for the past two-1/2 years, but they have remained faithful to God and their responsibility as a prayerful community.

Their final step to the Signatura - the "Supreme Court" of the Catholic Church - will require even more patience and I pray that the Grace of God will sustain them.

Dear Editor:

This is about the woman from Mahanoy City that was hit by a car while she was crossing the street, about a week ago.

The story in the papers, said the man driving the car, an elderly man, was going north on Main Street. He was making a right turn onto Centre Street. The man had the green light to go.

The woman was crossing Centre Street because she had the right of way. The light was red for her to cross over. The story said she was about half way across the street when she was hit.
