Dear Editor:

I served my country in 1966, by joining the United States Marine Corps. in order to go fight in a so called; "police action" halfway around the world, in a country that had no Navy, no Air Force, except for a few Russian MiGs, a large Army of infantry from the North, and a lot of farmers by day, and guerrilla fighters by night, and I still believe there were a lot of Chinese mixed in among them.

Dear Editor:

Jim Thorpe Borough Council has adopted a new form of local government, that of Council-Manager leadership. This is a form of local government in accordance with National Civic League guidelines, which pertain to the Model City Charter. Charter involvement addresses "critical issues confronting local government and stress the role of citizen participation in public life. Research for clarification on understanding the structural concepts concerning this form of government proved to be enlightening and are being offered for sharing.

Dear Editor:

The New house speaker is sworn in. However on TV for all to see, he showed a piece of paper and he carried a copy of the Constitution. He also, (Quote) said it guaranteed Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. I think that's the Declaration of Independence. (He didn't know that?) Are we in trouble?

Also if they cut social security they hurt older people. If they cut Medicaid they are crazy, because we need it more than ever. If they hit what they call OBAMA AID, they hurt everyone. It's meant to help!

I Remain,

Robert (Ski) Siesputowski

Dear Editor:

Everyone, by now, has read about the dramatic rescue of a Jim Thorpe resident from the Glen Onoko Falls on Tuesday afternoon. He can be very thankful that his fellow hikers were there and able to care for him until help arrived on scene. Keeping him warm after the initial exposure to icy water was critical to his surviving the extrication.

Dear Editor:

Up at 3:30 - 4 a..m. Get out of the nice cozy bed, slip out of the just perfect temperature sheets. Try not to awaken the wife. Go out into the bone-chilling northeast wind. Fine sleet pellets going down the back of the neck; darn hood won't stay put in the wind. Almost slip on the clear ice (remembering last year when you did fall, hurt the back really badly. Lost a week's work. No work - no money).

Dear Editor:

It was with much sadness that I read the obit for Michael Chovanes, who died on January 1st. Walk through the main entrance to Bright's Department Store during the 1950's or 1960's and take an immediate left to the front corner. That was the world of Michael Chovanes...jewelry and photography.

Dear Editor:

President Obama recently phoned the Philadelphia Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, and commended him for giving Michael Vick a 'second chance'. Now Mr. Vick says he wants another dog.

Society would never allow a child molester or a very violent person to adopt a vulnerable child, so we should never be in favor of allowing as severe an animal abuser as Vick is to adopt a vulnerable animal.
