Letters to the Editor

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Dear Editor:

We would like to give a very gratetful thank you to The Times News for putting the picture of Unlucky in the paper. The letter to the editor was the only place Unlucky, the abandoned rottweiler, could reach the public for those who would hear about his horrible plight. The only place!!!!

Dear Editor:

I read the TIMES NEWS on Friday, Sept. 3 in regard to the sludge concerns in Tuscarora and Mary D. To my surprise, our local politicians, Argall and Knowles, are concerned.

Where have they been?

Let's all remember the involvement they had in the dumping projects in the past. They told you what you wanted to hear but never took a real stand against the dumping or accomplished anything. Now that it is election year, here they go again telling you what you want to hear.

Dear Editor:

Enclosed you will find an article from page 1 of Tuesday's front page, interesting, of course. However, also enclosed is an article on page 11, ELEVEN??? Our troops are honored.

Each day I pour over the pages of the TIMES NEWS for news of our military forces serving overseas, service people who have been slain, wounded and are suffering horrific conditions. This IS NOT old stale news.

We need to honor each and every one of them, their families and friends at home praying and worrying about them.

Dear Editor:

It certainly is depressing to hear that the employment picture in Carbon County is so harsh.

So it is hard to understand why, in such a brutal job market, with no realistic solutions in sight, that local tourism isn't seen as part of the answer rather than treated as some sort of nuisance.

In my role with the Jim Thorpe Chamber of Commerce I have often heard the statement that we're just talking about "downtown businesses." It is this short-sightedness which helps explain why the bad jobs picture is so entrenched here in Carbon County.

Dear Editor:

Attention all people who drive on North Street of Jim Thorpe.

Currently the zoning committee in Jim Thorpe is considering a proposal by Todd Mason to build a two bay carwash in the middle of the 200 block of North Street (Route 903). I, and many others, perceive this proposed carwash to be an extreme, potentially deadly safety hazard for traffic as the proposed exit and entrance will be directly onto North Street in the middle of the block.

Dear Editor:

* I enjoyed the letter written to the parents of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Elementary School Home of the "Fighting Pantsuits." First item brings toilet paper.

* Is it true statement by the Game Warden at Beltzville that the lake is for recreation and not fishing.

* Mr. Duffy (Jim Thorpe) quoted Tacitus "The more corrupt the state the more it legislates. No truer words for the Obama Administration and Health Care!

Dear Editor:

This weekend we remember, with profound sadness, when horror struck New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. When Christian and Jew, Muslim and Buddhist, Agnostic and Atheist, people from all over the world, of all cultures, races and belief systems, perished together in the Twin Towers. Our hearts were crushed.

We are all made of the same stardust and of the same life blood. We are each a very special creation in the human family.

Dear Editor,

After reading the article on the jobless rate in Carbon County it occurred to me that there was a large industry in our county that was over looked and of course that does not surprise me. Being part of this industry I see the attitudes of people every day.

Now sit down as you read on, some may be in shock others may see red. This industry is TOURISM !!!!!! Why was this not researched as Mr. Gower was writing the article? Can anyone imagine without those dollars flowing into our area what a distressed area this would be?

"Unlucky"

Dear Editor:

I am writing this sad letter about a German rottweiler that has to have his leg amputated soon. He was abandoned up on the Broad Mountain in Nesquehoning sometime in July. After several weeks someone finally caught him ... I will call him Unlucky because he has had a very rough time to survive up there. No food, no water. Hot weather and rainy thunder storms. Snakes and insects, a lot of traffic. And the fear of not knowing where he was for numerous nights and days.
