Letters to the Editor

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Dear Editor:

RE: TIMES NEWS Letters Sept. 11, 2010. In 'a weekend of sadness', Deacon Skip La Police writes, "A wise and good man once commended (commented?) that if Buddha, Moses, Muhammad, Jesus and Confucius should ever come together … they would instantly recognize each other … as good and holy truth speakers … beloved equally by the same God."

Implying that Jesus is just another founder of a worldwide religion is insulting. Jesus is unique because He is both God and man. Moses would eagerly confess this truth but it is highly unlikely that the others would.

Dear Editor:

Regarding a recent story published in the Times News, it seems as if it is time for another episode of "Let's See if We Can Pull the Wool over the Hicks' Eyes". I say this in frustration of another case of a metropolitan area telling us their waste is "good for us" and we should accept in this area.

Of course, the Department of Environmental Pollution is helpless as usual and condone and partner with these industries while not allowing a peer review of their so-called science. I've said it before, and I'll say it again- this crap is all about money.

Dear Editor:

We would like to give a very gratetful thank you to The Times News for putting the picture of Unlucky in the paper. The letter to the editor was the only place Unlucky, the abandoned rottweiler, could reach the public for those who would hear about his horrible plight. The only place!!!!

Dear Editor:

I read the TIMES NEWS on Friday, Sept. 3 in regard to the sludge concerns in Tuscarora and Mary D. To my surprise, our local politicians, Argall and Knowles, are concerned.

Where have they been?

Let's all remember the involvement they had in the dumping projects in the past. They told you what you wanted to hear but never took a real stand against the dumping or accomplished anything. Now that it is election year, here they go again telling you what you want to hear.

Dear Editor:

Enclosed you will find an article from page 1 of Tuesday's front page, interesting, of course. However, also enclosed is an article on page 11, ELEVEN??? Our troops are honored.

Each day I pour over the pages of the TIMES NEWS for news of our military forces serving overseas, service people who have been slain, wounded and are suffering horrific conditions. This IS NOT old stale news.

We need to honor each and every one of them, their families and friends at home praying and worrying about them.

Dear Editor:

It certainly is depressing to hear that the employment picture in Carbon County is so harsh.

So it is hard to understand why, in such a brutal job market, with no realistic solutions in sight, that local tourism isn't seen as part of the answer rather than treated as some sort of nuisance.

In my role with the Jim Thorpe Chamber of Commerce I have often heard the statement that we're just talking about "downtown businesses." It is this short-sightedness which helps explain why the bad jobs picture is so entrenched here in Carbon County.

Dear Editor:

Attention all people who drive on North Street of Jim Thorpe.

Currently the zoning committee in Jim Thorpe is considering a proposal by Todd Mason to build a two bay carwash in the middle of the 200 block of North Street (Route 903). I, and many others, perceive this proposed carwash to be an extreme, potentially deadly safety hazard for traffic as the proposed exit and entrance will be directly onto North Street in the middle of the block.

Dear Editor:

* I enjoyed the letter written to the parents of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Elementary School Home of the "Fighting Pantsuits." First item brings toilet paper.

* Is it true statement by the Game Warden at Beltzville that the lake is for recreation and not fishing.

* Mr. Duffy (Jim Thorpe) quoted Tacitus "The more corrupt the state the more it legislates. No truer words for the Obama Administration and Health Care!

Dear Editor:

This weekend we remember, with profound sadness, when horror struck New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. When Christian and Jew, Muslim and Buddhist, Agnostic and Atheist, people from all over the world, of all cultures, races and belief systems, perished together in the Twin Towers. Our hearts were crushed.

We are all made of the same stardust and of the same life blood. We are each a very special creation in the human family.
