Dear Editor:

A question.

PNC and the SWB Yankees are receiving money to redo their stadium. Why?

PNC Bank doesn't foot the bill. Why ?

Schools have to give up things and fire teachers.

What`s more important ?

Also what happened to pride ?

I remember when people and bands and floats where in parades for pride.

Now you have to beg and pay them ?

I Remain,

Robert ( Ski ) Siesputowski

Dear Editor:

To Mr. Joseph Stearns, chairman

Schuylkill County Republican Party

I have recently become aware of your comments on April 29, 2010, regarding my mother's (Frances E. Adams) "Spotty" attendance at West Penn polls on recent elections.

My mother's support for the Republican party has been outstanding, in fact, I was present at an award dinner where she was honored for her service to the Republican party.

The other day when I was driving toward town, I had the misfortune of following a garbage truck. The road was narrow and I could not pass. So, my mind started to think about what I call, "The Law of the Garbage Truck."

I thought about how many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, frustration, anger and disappointment. As their garbage piles up higher and higher, they need a place to dump it. Sometimes, they'll even try to dump it on you.

Saturday May 7th was just another day for most, a sad day for others. Without much fanfare, a Mauch Chunk Landmark was demolished. Neither the Times News, Channel 13 nor the Hystorical Society were in attendance at the event. It was a sad day especially for those who love the same name as the place to go down, Kattner's Bar!

Dear Editor:

A half an hour before it was scheduled to begin; I heard that the Tamaqua School board was having a meeting. In this day of budget constraints, they were going to be discussing elementary school music education funding as of the topics.

As a parent of a junior in the band, as well as another child in college who is deep in study of music education and performance, I have an interest in the music program, but no real vested interest in the elementary school funding of music considering the age of my sons.

Dear Editor:

I recently attended a town hall held by Congressman Lou Barletta at the Amvets in Lansford. I am a constituent of Mr. Barletta's, I am concerned about the Ryan budget, and I was aware that Mr. Barletta voted for it, including its provisions to change Medicare into a voucher system, essentially killing the program.
