Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

A message to my former patients and colleagues:

As you may have heard via personal letter or the media, I am currently unable to provide medical care to my patients. I deeply regret my poor judgment that led to this situation, as it has created great discomfort to my family, my former colleagues at Carbon Medical Associates and Blue Mountain Health System, and especially to the families who have come to depend on me for their medical care throughout the years.

Dear Editor:

Wednesday evening (April 21) we went to meet the candidates for our 122 District, at the Mahoning Valley Ambulance. Only the two Republicans of the six who indicated they would be there actually showed. One of the missing sent a letter. A couple called. One had another campaign function to attend. Guess we were just chopped meat. A Libertarian candidate, who was not scheduled, and who will not be on the ballot this primary, was allowed to speak.

Special to The TIMES NEWS

This year, as I observe my 50th year in the communication business, I recall with a certain embarrassment my incredible boldness that took me in this career direction.

It was May 1966, and after six years of working in radio, I applied for the opening of Monroe County bureau chief of The Express (now The Express-Times), a 50,000-circulation afternoon daily in Easton.

The veteran reporter, who had held that position for more than 10 years, had decided to go back to college to become a teacher.

Dear Editor:

Recently President Obama pledged $8 billion for new nuclear reactors. I am personally frustrated with Obama's plans to promote nuclear power and am concerned that the administration has not planned a strategy for safe, long-term storage of radioactive waste.

Obama claims that nuclear power will allow us to transition into utilizing renewable energies. However I am pessimistic that the president will endorse renewable energy such as wind and solar power in the future.

Dear Editor:

I was sad to learn of the death of a beloved teacher. His name is Robert Kovac Sr. and he taught English at the Jim Thorpe Senior High for many years. He wasn't just a teacher to a lot of us, he excited us to read, urged us to tell him about the books that we read. He introduced me to Beowulf, which is still one of my favorite books. He talked to me when my father passed and showed he was a friend as well as a teacher, he will be missed greatly by many more than myself. Thank you Mr. Kovac....for teaching me to read and write from the heart ...

Dear Editor:

Mom has always been there to nurture and take care of you. Mother's Day is the perfect time to give back and look out for her. If she's having a hard time paying for her prescription drugs, tell her about the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan and the extra help available through Social Security.

Dear Editor:

What's going on with kids and parents in Summit Hill, Lansford and Nesquehoning? How come these towns can only get one or two teams in Little League?

Kids are all out on the streets. Hanging out, some, (not all) getting into trouble.

They should be in sports. Learning how to get along and sportsmanship never hurt anyone.

Tamaqua can get up to seven to nine teams. Do the parents there think more about keeping their kids out of trouble and teaching them sportsmanship?

It also helps kids with their weight problem. Come on parents.
