Letters to the Editor

Saturday, November 6, 2010

Dear Editor:

On behalf of Joyce and Richard "Digger" Bloom, we want to thank all those who generously donated their time and efforts in making our fundraiser a success. We, especially, want to thank those who donated baskets for the raffle, tickets, food and supplies for the dinner, all who made monetary donations to the cause and the Jim Thorpe Area School District and L.B. Morris staff without whom this could not have been possible.

Dear Editor:

It is a pleasure to be able to highly compliment the article "Residents protest proposed layoff of 3 police officers" written by Rick Grant regarding our 2011 budget difficulties. The article is totally factual, accurate and complete, showing no bias toward township citizens or Board members.

Your reporter put in the time and effort needed to get the story right and township staff and the board of supervisors sincerely appreciate that effort.

Dear Editor:

I just want to say a few words about Lehighton Hospital. (Yes, I said Lehighton Hospital). I entered the hospital on Oct. 13, for what was to be a routine three-day total knee replacement surgery. However, a blood clot in my lungs not only extended my stay, but threatened my life. Immediately the entire staff of Lehighton Hospital sprang into action. They not only completed the knee replacement but performed a second surgery quickly and professionally.

Dear Editor:

On Saturday, October 9th, Heritage Hill Senior Community chaired the Alzheimer's Memory Walk for the 10th consecutive year in Weatherly.

Over 60 walkers took steps in hopes of finding a cure for Alzheimer's! Escorted by the Weatherly Police Department, they took pleasure in walking the 3 miles through the picturesque borough of Weatherly.

Because of the combined efforts of so many wonderful individuals, businesses, and families, this event raised over $10,000 for the Alzheimer's Association!

Dear Editor:

It looks like we saved the very best for last! I want to thank the nearly 1,000 Carbon County seniors who joined me at Memorial Hall on Thursday, October 21 for my final Senior Fair as State Representative.

This year's fair broke all the records thanks to the outstanding job getting the word out from the Times-News and Blue Ridge TV – our community is very fortunate to have such dedicated media outlets focusing on the news and events that matter in Carbon County.
