Letters to the Editor

Saturday, September 11, 2010

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.

Dear Editor,

After reading the article on the jobless rate in Carbon County it occurred to me that there was a large industry in our county that was over looked and of course that does not surprise me. Being part of this industry I see the attitudes of people every day.

Now sit down as you read on, some may be in shock others may see red. This industry is TOURISM !!!!!! Why was this not researched as Mr. Gower was writing the article? Can anyone imagine without those dollars flowing into our area what a distressed area this would be?

"Unlucky"

Dear Editor:

I am writing this sad letter about a German rottweiler that has to have his leg amputated soon. He was abandoned up on the Broad Mountain in Nesquehoning sometime in July. After several weeks someone finally caught him ... I will call him Unlucky because he has had a very rough time to survive up there. No food, no water. Hot weather and rainy thunder storms. Snakes and insects, a lot of traffic. And the fear of not knowing where he was for numerous nights and days.

Dear Editor:

I wanted to write and thank everyone who came out and supported our 1st annual "Emergency Services Day".

We are planning an even bigger and better event for next year. It is important that we know of the emergency services which are available to us in case we ever need them.

About two years ago my wife dropped her wallet in front of our house. About two hours later we got a call from the Tamaqua police office. The wallet had been found and when I went in to receive it, all monies and credit cards and I.D. cards and all personal stuff was intact. When I took the wallet to my wife Mary, we marveled at the realization of what a great community this is to live in.

Dear Editor:

I'm a little confused about what is going on with Roger Clemens and HIS Grand Jury.

It is being said that because he alledgedly lied to the Grand Jury about taking steriods (none of our business) that he is facing like a million years in jail and a gazillion dollars in fines...I was just wondering if this is the same Grand Jury that Slick Willy Clinton lied to about having sex in the White House, which he later admitted to having done, therefore making him a liar to a Grand Jury.

Dear Editor:

Mr. Wargo, perhaps being confrontational is a way to sell newspapers, but it isn't a very responsible way for a columnist to behave. Your article on treating atheism as a religion fails to appreciate both parts of the freedom of religion clause.

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to the parties involved with the "Save Us from Ourselves" political structure:

Allow me to begin with, I loathe watching so called "Reality Television" primarily due to the fact that the local people in the surrounding communities to me provide all that I could ever want for entertainment and delight.

Mr. Eckhart, I implore you to take a look at some existing regulations in your community's rule book. I am sure that there was something in there that regulates certified heating systems of some sort.

Dear Editor:

Creativity's theoretical and aesthetical foundations are the basis of our country's design structuring, controlling environmental change. New changes are being done by a corrupt system within the Government. Established theoretical and aesthetical values are changed in keeping with the goals of the present Victorian system. Many individual and human rights are placed at risk as a result of unpredictable outcome. This is wrong. It needs change.
