Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Congratulations to the Lehighton Area High School GIRLS Field Hockey TEAM. In my opinion and from other persons that were at the game, if you would have played an all GIRLS TEAM, you might have won another State Championship, but since the supposable GIRLS TEAM from Wyoming Seminary was allowed to use a MALE RINGER ALL STAR EXCHANGE STUDENT FROM GERMANY, you were denied a possible State Championship.

I, along with hundreds of other supporters are extremely proud of your accomplishments and you art truly CHAMPIONS.

Dear Editor:

This is my feedback regarding the services provided by Attorney General Tom Corbett's foreclosure investigation article printed in the TIMES NEWS during the second week of October 2010. It is my opinion that this was nothing more than an election publicity stunt to focus a fake good light upon Tom Corbett.

We also served teh Soup Kitchens of St. Lukes Church, Stroudsburg; and Our Lady Queen of Peace, Brodheadsville.

Dear Editor,

It is seldom that you hear that the government helps the regular guy. It is extremely seldom that those in government receive the thanks for doing something from the public! Here is my story about these events.

Dear Editor:

Just wanted to send a shout of thanks out to a group of amazing young men doing amazing things.

Marcus Kunkle, 17, Matt McGeehan, 14, Tyler Ritter, 13, and Nick McGeehan, 12 are a bunch of knuckleheads from Lehighton known as A.D.D. who recently rocked The Zoo in Lansford and managed to headline an event that raised $1,045 for the Cinicola family whose son, Cody, is battling cancer.

Dear Editor:

I am appalled that taxpayer dollars are being wasted on the Route 54 S curve project.

I travelRoute 54 regularly and I find nothing dangerous about those curves so long as people stay within the posted speed limit. Often while driving at or slightly above the speed limit I am either tailgated or passed. Sometimes where it's legal, mostly where it is neither legal nor safe.

The road is fine. Speeding and careless driving cause the accidents. There are no bad roads, only bad drivers.

Dear Editor:

We have done it again!!

Together we have touched the lives of those who are sacrificing time away from their families, in harsh environments, during this holiday season in the name of our freedom.

Thanks to our community and a hard working group of volunteers, Operation Touch of Home packaged and shipped 11,627 pounds of essentials to 125 brave men and women during our 2010 Holiday Drive. Taking into consideration the current state of our economy, this drive was an overwhelming success.

Dear Editor:

The Jim Thorpe Borough Council held it's regular monthly meeting at Memorial Park on Thursday, Nov. 11. Justin Yaich, one council member, announced that Memorial Hall is being assessed for possibility of sale. Usually, borough halls, as a symbol of local government along with their distinctive architectural design are structures considered to have great historical and cultural significance. Given this recognition, in my opinion, projected sale of the hall is of concern and needs to be given appropriate consideration.

Dear Editor:

Mega pharmaceutical manufacturers produce drugs for human consumption. These companies are self-automatons, very wealthy and very powerful. They control the pharmaceutical industry, and have the means to control clinical profiles to advantage. To do so is considered inappropriate action needing justifying.
