Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

The Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess and bear firearms.

Dec. 27, 2010 in a Peanuts cartoon, Charlie Brown is talking to someone, stating that he is trying to get a dog license for Snoopy. Snoopy has already gotten a temporary drivers permit, and now has a fishing license. At the time, Snoopy is carrying an unregistered and unlicensed fishing rod.

Dear Editor:

I wanted to thank the Times News for publishing Star Parker's commentary on the recent repeal of the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.

Mrs. Parker's commentary was a welcomed opposing viewpoint from the mass media's portrayal of the matter.

As Mrs. Parker points out, morality is not a subjective matter based on opinion. If such a philosophy were to be followed to its logical conclusion, then all behaviors would need to be deemed by society as good.

Instead, as Mrs. Parker suggests, morality is an objective matter.

Dear Editor,

My family thinks "house is too quiet,"

And also thinks "mom needs a pet"

I told them no more pets in this house

No matter how quiet it gets.

"Don't dare bring a cat, dog, nor bird here

I know you've been taking a poll

To decide what you think would work out here.

And, above all, NO fish in a bowl."

I knew I could visit a shelter

If I needed to pet someone's pet

Someone who took home a cute puppy

Not thinking 'bout how big he'd get.

It's not very far to the shelter

Dear Editor:

The bell ringers are back, stronger than ever. You have to admire their courage to stand outside and brave the windy 27-degree weather and constantly ring that little bell, defying everything to serve a worthwhile cause.

Yes, even defying the American Civil Liberties Union who pursues any store that allows the bell ringers a warm place inside their front doors.

Dear Editor:

On Oct. 11, I was involved in a car accident on Interchange Road by the Pa. Turnpike.

I would like to thank the young couple who saw the accident, and call 9-1-1 and whom also stayed with me and my daughter. That meant a lot to both my daughter and I.

The ambulance personnel and EMS were there instantly. The timing in getting my daughter and I were very crucial. They all worked together. So at this time, my daughter and I would like to thank everyone involved at the scene and helped in whatever matter.

Dear Editor:

I really wonder about the mindset of the weak links in the capital. And do they really understand the value of a dollar and what we are doing without to make ends meet in this time of financial crisis gripping our nation.

Dear Editor:

Over the Christmas holidays I had the strangest dream. Just before drifting off to sleep, I was watching the holiday classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life." I try to view this every year to help me remember what is truly important in life, and to refresh my sense of gratitude.

Dear Editor:

The regular meeting of the Jim Thorpe Borough Council was held at Memorial Park in Memorial Hall on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. I attended the meeting. One specific agenda item was of special interest for me. "Agreement to enter into an ordinance authorization participating in PLGIT" as mentioned by John McQuire, president of Borough Council.

Dear Editor:

I would like to publicly thank the party or parties who not once but TWICE siphoned the fuel from my truck while it was parked in East Kline Ave in Lansford during the Month of December 2010.

Remember, what goes around comes around my friend.

Happy New Year.
