Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

First there were problems with the care at the Walter Reed Hospital.

Then problems at the Arlington National Cemetery.

New problems with the ashes of the Fallen Heros at Dover Morgue.

The Nation that forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.

That also goes for those who dishonor them.

Let`s get people in the right positions.

We need people who care.

And now some of the largest banks are ripping off veterans.

What is going on in this country ?

I Remain,

Robert ( Ski ) Siesputowski

Summit Hill -

Dear Editor

The Tea Party movement and Wall Street protests of late have shown us that some Americans believe we are mishandling our budget, while others see a problem with our rising income inequality, respectively. They are anxious to participate in our democracy, and shouldn't be pitted against one another to determine which protest was more orderly, who had the better message, etc...

Dear Editor:

To fellow Taxpayers:

How information is shown greatly influences the perception of the person hearing the information. My father and his fellow servicemen fought through the propaganda of World War II. He taught me an eye opening lesson I have used many times.

He said, "If you feel you are being shown only one path, be very wary of the guy giving you directions."

Let's take the new school project that is up for a School Board vote at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 at the high school.

Dear Editor:

As budget crises deepen across the country, many fear that education funding could be put on the chopping block. If school budgets are reduced, will it be possible to get a high quality education in public schools?

The simple answer is yes. A high quality education might be priceless in today's economy. But it doesn't have to be overly expensive.

Dear Editor:

It's rare that a newspaper headline can be considered an understatement. But I think the Times News headline on Nov. 8th "Traffic Woes in Tamaqua" does not even begin to express what our community is going through and is about to go through.

Dear Editor:

To honor Veterans Day, I'm writing to remind readers that Pennsylvania offers a special one-time payment to honor the service and sacrifice of its veterans who served on active duty in the Persian Gulf Theater of Operations from Aug. 2, 1990 – Aug. 31, 1991.

Dear Editor:

As a person who in the past has repeatedly broken the law, I now understand what they are there for. SAFETY. The saftey of you and I and others.

When you obtain a Commenwealth of Penna. state driver's license, you sign a paper TO OBEY THE LAW. That doesn't mean you obey the law sometimes, when you are not in a hurry, or if you are late for an appointment, but ALWAYS!

By SEN. DAVID G. ARGALL (R-29)

Small businesses are the backbone of our state, local and national economy, providing more than half of all jobs across the entire nation. However, starting a new business can be a very complex and difficult process fraught with potential pitfalls around every corner. It is extremely important to ensure upcoming entrepreneurs have the tools and resources they need to succeed in today's economy.

Dear Editor:

I agree with the concept of Occupy Wall Street.

However, there have been to many clashes with authorities.

They must find a way to get rid of the trouble makers if they want to succeed.

Also I would like to know why John Lennon's tooth is worth $31,000 dollars.

For a tooth ? Give me a break ! That is just plain stupid !

The Veterans Administration must get funding needed to help veterans, plus school budgets are being cut.

But we can afford to spend millions on pro sports stadiums and thousands on someone's tooth?
