Letters to the Editor

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Dear Editor:

As state Attorney General and gubernational candidate, one would think Tom Corbett would bump into Sandi Vito, Pa. Secretary of Labor and Industry, in his travels around the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. Mr. Corbett would be wise to sit down with Ms. Vito and discuss some of the specifics she outlines in a recent "opinion" column that ran in the TIMES NEWS on July 13.

Dear Editor:

I would like to say congratulations to those men who helped out at the Reigel accident. It shows that there are people in this town of ours who are ready to give their support in any case whatsoever.

What those men did was really breathtaking. We may read about people saving other people's lives in other ares, but not in our own town. Those men are heroes. They should be given some kind of citation for what they did.

Dear Editor:

What's the first thing George Steinbrenner did when he got to heaven?

If anyone in this country should have been in charge of creating jobs, it was George Steinbrenner.

We should have let him change any rules, trade agreements, banking rules, you name it, in order to create good paying jobs for the people.

I'm sure he would have made many enemies: Bankers, politicans, counties, Washington insiders, a lot of people, but we would have more than enough good jobs.

Dear Editor:

All across the country, bells were rung 13 times on Sunday afternoon to celebrate one of the most important events in our country's history: the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the 13 original colonies.

Dear Editor:

We all know that over the many years of our lives that discretion at times is always better road traveled. Charlie Chan the famous detective always said, "Number 1 son do not open mouth and insert foot."

Dear Editor:

After reading Friday's TIMES NEWS article on the fight for the remains of the 20th Century greatest athlete "Jim Thorpe," I realized it is a sad story of greed and money.

Most people would like this issue to be resolved.

Losing the namesake of a national hero, Jim Thorpe reminds me of the old testament of Solomon, which half do you give who?

Dear Editor:

I volunteer at the food bank in Palmerton and a few weeks ago when there was a break in clients a woman came in and asked us all to come into the main room. I did recognize her as someone who did frequent the food bank.

Dear Editor:

I am so proud to have the opportunity to know the people who manage and volunteer in the Shepherd House Food Pantries in Carbon County. The work and expertise that goes into managing a food pantry is astonishing.

Managers along with helpers put in much time and effort to make sure that the pantries are well-stocked. They shop and go where bargains are available all on their own time and use their own vehicles without pay or reimbursement. They are very dedicated and conscientious of providing food for the people in need in Carbon County.

Dear Editor:

I owe taxes to PV School District. I don't know if I can pay these taxes on time and therefore I can lose my property.

The PV School Board has a lot of trouble balancing a budget. Whey don't they try a four-day workweek. Some other school districts have this and it is working. At least try it.

God bless.

Yours truly,

Stephen S. Herbert

Dear Editor:

A question. Why hasn't this oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico been declared a national emergency ?

Wouldn't this free up more help to stop and clean up this mess?
