Letters to the Editor

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Dear Editor:

I recall when I was a young kid in the 5 to 6 years old range, we would always visit my grandmother Sophia for Sunday dinner. My grandfather, with his heavy mustache and stern look, always sat in a chair waiting for dinner and did not talk very much.

I was told he was a very gentile man but you couldn't prove that by me. Every once in a while Sophia would say to the family, John needs a high colonic and everyone would laugh. That only made him look ever sterner.

I did not, at the time, understand what that really meant, but everyone else did.

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to take the time to let the citizens of our community know how fortunate we are to have the dedicated volunteers that we have in our community.

I am always impressed by the care and concern that is displayed at accidents, fires and other emergencies that arise on a daily basis in our community. They often leave their jobs and families to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week, not knowing for sure what they will encounter or when and if they will return.

Dear Editor:

In his victory address on Nov. 2, Lou Barletta stated that one issue the incoming Congress should look into is "term limits."

Mr. Barletta, we already have "term limit." They are called "elections."

Sincerely,

Richard Carrigan

Dear Editor:

I was told by another Vietnam vet that Subway stores were providing free sandwiches on Nov. 11 to all veterans.

When I went to the Palmerton Subway store they were unaware of the offer. They made a phone call and were told that Subway stores in this area were not participating in the offer but said they would be glad to honor a vet and make me a sandwich.

I think it made them feel good to do something for an individual who served his country. I know it made me feel good that they went out of their way to honor a grateful vet.

Dear Editor:

After being bombarded by telephone calls and tons of political fliers can't believe these idiots and their tactics.

I actually got two calls that started, "Hello James. This is Pat Boone.

Do their political hacks think that some over the hill singer is going to change my mind to vote for their candidates?

At least my eyes, ears and mind will get a rest for a while.

Independently yours,

Jim Butler

Dear Editor:

If you're a teen in grades 9-12, we are looking for you to come help battle cancer and participate in our first A Battle for the Battle. McCann School of Business & Technology Hazleton and Pottsville Campus are teaming up with T102 Radio to host this teen event on Friday, December 3rd from 6-11 p.m. at Lakeside Ballroom. It will consist of a Battle of the Bands, as well as a Dance Off (think So You Think You Can Dance meets America's Best Dance Crew).

Dear Editor:

Last week's elections will usher in a new Congress, who will be expected to consider the recommendations of the Deficit Reduction Commission.

I implore both the Commission and our incoming Congress to have the courage to make real cuts to our military budget instead of sacrificing crucial spending on human needs.

Dear Editor:

On Sunday, Nov. 7 I took part in the Carbon County Veterans Day Parade.

It was cold and the people watching were few.

But I heard a lot of people saying thank you to the veterans.

When the colors passed some people took off their hats and put them over their heart.

Some veterans that were not marching came to attention and saluted.

This alone made my day for me, I'd like to say Thank You!

I Remain
