Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Because you (and by you I mean the majority of Americans who care more about the big game or who is going to win American Idol than you do about what our out of control tyrannical government is doing to us) have traded in community activism for yelling at your TV sets, I am including a small list of offensive actions that are threatening our lives, our liberty and our pursuit of happiness.

Dear Editor:

I noticed that two old men told the people to vote. How do you get people to vote? How do you get people to think? How do you get people to read? Do stupid people vote for other stupid people?

Who are the politicians? What do they think? What do they know? What do they do? Do any of them volunteer? Jimmy Carter is the only one who comes to mind.

Ms. Noelle Gorka,

Coaldale

Dear Editor:

* When I look at at photo of class reunions, I cannot help but wonder if the total weight has increased since graduation? And by how much?

* I don't think our president knows which end of the candle to light.

* In reading an article from Jay Ambrose he detailed that 4 million children in this country have illegal parents. At what cost to the taxpayer?

* I had to chuckle at Bob Urban's article on returnables. When I was a kid those returnables added income to my meager allowance. Twenty five cents a week.

Next year marks a milestone in Schuylkill county's history with the celebration of our 200th birthday! Bicentennial festivities are beginning and the Board of Schuylkill County Commissioners wanted to inform the public of opportunities for young people to help make our celebration memorable, educational and fun.

Dear Editor:

After recently reading how unemployment in Carbon County is over 11 percent and the 4th highest in the state I wanted to mention a success story.

The spring opening of the Delaware and Lehigh trail into Jim Thorpe and its termination at the county parking lot.

At a time when people are watching their expenses and cutting back we have seen an increase in our biking business and thus visitation to Jim Thorpe.

Agriculture is the state's most important industry, producing more than $4.8 billion in cash receipts annually and employing about one in six Pennsylvanians. The agriculture industry plays a vital role in the local economies of many communities in the 29th Senatorial District all of Schuylkill and parts of Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe and Northampton counties.

Dear Editor:

After reading the TIMES NEWS article addressing the proposed dumping of sewage sludge near the towns of Mary D and Tuscarora, I offer a bit of advice for the citizens residing there, "Don't Hold Your Breath" while you're waiting for any semblance of preventive action by your state and federal legislators, ie. Argall, Holden, Knowles, McCall, Goodman, Eaches et.al.
