Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank the management of Lowe's for the expeditious and well planned opening of the store in Lehighton. The transition was effective with no congestion of the intersection of the entrance. A new broom always sweeps clean so do not let your enthusiasm falter as time progresses.

Dear Editor:

Why should anyone desire to have a championship pro team in any sport in their city?

When the team wins a championship, there is nothing but destruction in their city that runs into millions of dollars, looting, fires, vehicles overturned and police trying to keep down the street gangs and stupid violence.

I'm glad the Phillies lost to St. Louis. It saved the city from immense debt.

Dear Editor;

To Tamaqua Borough Council. In August of 2011 we were shocked to receive a 'Notice to Connect' letter from the Borough of Tamaqua stating that the building we own on West Broad Street was illegally discharging wastewater into the Wabash Creek. Further, it stated that we had 60 days to connect to the City Sewer system, entirely at our own expense, otherwise risking "Legal Action" by the Borough.

Dear Editor:

I do not consider myself to be a conservative or a liberal, because I use my own better judgment when deciding on how certain political issues should be handled. I guess you could call me somewhat of a moderate, if you wanted to label me on how I view an important subject of interest involving our political agenda. Sometimes, I agree or disagree with certain conservative points of view, and sometimes I agree or disagree with some more liberal view points.

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?
