Dear Editor:

I seem to be a Democratic Liberal-Progressive's Worst Nightmare. I'm a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, Constitution loving, Gun Owning Biker.

- I work at a Culm (waste coal) fired power plant. You know its one of those nasty earth killing plants that produces electricity in which you need to run your lap top, electric car, cell phone's, ipods, lights, heats your home etc.

- I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others.

Dear Editor:

While busy in another room of my house, I overheard a reference on television about former President Eisenhower's famous statement concerning the Military Industrial complex. I heard references to that famous comment many times in the past; however this time, in light of a growing distrust of government leaders of both parties and an administration which patronizingly states of our growing national debt.; "everything is on the table!" That is of course, everything except the defense budget! And for that reason I decided to research his entire farewell address.

Dear Editor:

This is about the three stories in the TIMES NEWS about Guy Bowe, Nicholas Mantz and Amanda Walck. It is also about your editorial on the three youths.

That was something worth writing about. Those kids deserved that kind of appreciation for what they did. Especially Guy Bowe. He and friends did an outstanding job. Everybody should be proud of all three of these fine young people. And again thank you for honoring them with your editorial on them.

Mr. Edward R. Rummel

World War II Veteran,

Tamaqua

Dear Editor:

In keeping with "shared sacrifice", I feel that the President and the members of Congress, past and present, should cut their salaries and all their benefits by 20 percent and set an example for the rest of the nation.

One of the top priorities of the new governor will be the privatization of the state liquor store system, which has been state run since the prohibition era.

Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the early morning Dec 4 response and rescue to the vehicular accident in Tamaqua involving my boyfriend Daniel Peletsky. Namely, our local fire and ambulance, EMS crews, Hopes Collision and Towing and Pennstarr Medivac, for the quick work they all did in the rescue. I would especially like to thank Hope's and my employer Bayada Nurses for holiday kindnesses and compassion extended to my family and I.
