Letters to the Editor

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Dear Editor:

I was surprised and disappointed with Rep. Knowles' recent vote against House Bill 400, which targets illegal workers. Fortunately for Pennsylvania workers, House Bill 400 passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by the Governor.

This bill targeting illegal workers was introduced in the House by a Democrat and also passed by the Republican controlled Senate. It doesn't get anymore bipartisan than that.

Dear Editor:

To all the Tamaqua Council members

This is in regard to the story that I read in a paper. It had to do with the changes in our polling places here in Tamaqua. I know that in West Penn Township there is the same trouble. An elderly woman down there use to go across the street to vote now has to go two miles.

Dear Editor:

As friends ask how will you cope with his loss?

Edward "Pat" Patrick 01/18/1923 to 10/03/2010

How do I cope with his loss?

Is he really gone?

Or

Was his body just a container to protect him from danger and harm?

When it was serving its purpose and appearing so handsome over the years did the container become damaged as time passed?

Were there so many injuries and ills that the container was no longer protection for him but a trap?

A trap that kept him from escaping and doing all that he loved and enjoyed.

Dear Editor:

The Borough Council of Jim Thorpe at a meeting October 14, 2010, passed an ordinance amendment making skateboarding against the law. It seems a cultural gap exists between the public and private sectors of the community causing a controversy and conflict. The skateboarders are being prevented from free choice to select a sport activity of their own choosing. In my opinion this is wrong and needs to be righted.

Dear Editor:

I have been receiving emails and a had a few media personnel contact me about a Bigfoot in Tuscarora State Park. There is no evidence of a Bigfoot Creature in and around Tuscarora State Park.

About seven years ago, I heard a report of a Bigfoot spotted on the other side of Tuscarora Lake . I did the research and investigation of these claims and they were to be false. Someone came up with a good story to be a hoax.

Dear Editor:

There was a service held on Oct. 13, for the men and women that served our country. Veterans of the sea born services. NAVY, MARINES, COASTGUARD, AND MERCHANT MARINES.

It was a nice turn out. The service was excellent. Pastor Marjorie H. Keiter did a wonderful job.

However most of the people that attended the service were not veterans and I am thankful they showed up. The veterans that did show up were few and I thank God for them.

Dear Editor:

On Oct. 12, the Jim Thorpe Zoning Hearing Board (JTZHB) held a meeting to decide if a car wash proposed by Todd Mason would be approved or denied.

On Oct. 13, Channel 13 aired a short clip concerning the meeting. The clip showed the applicants lawyer basically stating that - if the Jim Thorpe Zoning Ordinance (JTZO) did not allow increased congestion on its streets, no new businesses would ever open in Jim Thorpe. He hinted that the ordinance was old and not progressive.

I submit he is wrong on all counts.

Dear Editor:

To the voters. We are days away from the most historic election of our lifetime. The future of our nation, our freedom and our economic prosperity rely on who you cast your vote for this time around. Over the past two years, we have watched as a perfect storm of liberal policies have dragged our economy into a ditch and destroyed the principles which our country was founded upon. The time is now.
