Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

The story in the TIMES NEWS on Friday, was a really great one. It was about Rep. Doyle Heffley had to say about the illegals in our state of Pennsylvania. I hope a lot of people have seen it and read it. He told the truth about them how they are stealing our money in one way or another with those false cards they are using.

Dear Editor:

Democrats and Republicans can't agree. Looks like Congress will not agree on anything in the near future.

Seems all they want to do is work on re-election.

Am I the only one who thinks we need term limits on Congress ?

Well guess what, I was watching television and what I saw surprised me.

Go to wwwterm http://www.term limitpetition.com, tell your friends maybe we can change things.

Because if not we will go through this almost every month about the government shutting down.

Dear Editor:

Humanity is indeed at a crossroad. It must either choose to preserve human life or face a quite uncertain, unrecognizable and bleak future.

The Bible states that God abhors the shedding of all innocent blood. Yet since the legalization of abortion in 1973, it is reported that over 50 million abortions have occurred in our country alone. Who can be more innocent than a helpless child within the womb? God grieves.

Dear Editor:

I'm going to title this story "Burning Down the House." Why you ask? Here is why.

On a very recent camping trip to Hickory Run State Park, in which my husband and myself call our second home, we were amazed at the irresponsible behavior exhibited by some campers as they drove away, heading for home, while their campfire pits were still smoking from embers glowing in these pits. Imagine that!

Dear Editor:

PNC Field, home of the W.B. Yankees will under go renovations.

It will cost millions. My question is this being paid for by the taxpayers of PA?

If so am I the only one that thinks this is wrong?

Funding for education and programs for children and special classes, music and some sports are being cut.

Since when did a pro sports team become more important then the children of this state?

Dear Editor

I would like to believe that in times not too long ago, volunteering was something most people got actively involved in simply for the betterment of their community as a whole. In today's fast paced world it seems easier to forget than to accept this responsibility and unfortunately volunteer numbers have suffered.

Dear Editor:

All the members of the judiciary in Pennsylvania, from local magistrates to the state supreme court, are selected in partisan elections. Although many experts believe this system leads to all sorts of abuses, we seem to be stuck with it.

In any case, candidates for judicial offices often try to project an aura of non-partisanship. They avoid party gatherings and overt partisan activities and often cross-file.

Dear Editor,

On Friday, Sept. 23, 1011, the residents of the Meadow Avenue section of Hometown, like many others in the area, suffered from the effects of a flash flood. Torrential rain flowed down the streets and pooled at four catch basins two on either side of Grant Street and two on either side of Sunset Street, both fronting SR309 in Hometown.
