Dear Editor:

Speaker Pelosi: Well lets er ah ah er see with er er a a er having said that er a a ha r er ma er a that should er a ha answer your question.

Dear Editor:

I just received a letter from a friend with what he called "Truisms." I would like to share these with you.

Ÿ The nicest thing about the future is that it starts tomorrow.

Ÿ Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

Ÿ If you do not have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

Ÿ Seat belts are not as confining as wheel chairs.

Ÿ How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

Dear Editor:

Don`t you think it would be better if elected officials thought more of their country, and its people instead of worrying if they will be elected ?

I think those who want to start over on the health bill are in the pocket of the insurance companies.

I at this time until proven wrong think the Tea Party is part of the Republican party.

They seem to think they can`t be wrong.

Let's think about the country and its people, not how we can get re-elected.

That would get you re-elected for the right reason.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of myself, my daughter Jess Kutza, and the American Cancer Society Telethon Committee, I extend deepest gratitude to everyone who supported our Annual ACS Chinese Auction held in the Lakeside Ballroom on Sunday, March 7th.

This year's total of over 600 donations, hundreds of attendees and amazing proceeds would have never been possible without YOU, our supportive friends and businesses.

Dear Editor:

Spring is a time when the weather begins to change, the air begins to warm and spring breezes begin to dry the dead vegetation and other debris left from the previous fall and winter. The heavy winter snow cover is rapidly disappearing and the temperatures are beginning to rise. Homeowners and others are anxious to tidy-up their lawns and properties that were impacted by this past winter's wrath. Many people dispose of the debris that has accumulated during the winter by burning. They are unaware of the risks to life and property that their actions may have.

Dear Editor

To everyone at JTAMS Productions, the Mauch Chunk Opera House, Soundtrack Records, the Broadway House and to all the friends and fans of Jim Thorpe, not to mention those of you who came from farther away and turned out to see us on Saturday March 6th we'd like to say a hearty thanks!!!

We had a fantastic time in your charming town, first meeting and greeting new and returning fans at Soundtrack in their new location at 24 Broadway in the afternoon, then later in the evening after the show at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.

Dear Editor:

Are you a swinger? Well I have become one. I'm referring to the price of gas changing every other day.

What exactly is that all about? Are they trying to swing themselves silly while making us dizzy, or are they trying to keep copper pennies flowing, or is it a way to lose them?

I no longer put $10, $15, or $20 of gas in my car. I'll put in $11.68. Why not!

Dear Editor:

Health care. I am one of 40 plus million that does not have insurance.

If you took away the health insurance from every politician, insurance THAT WE PAY FOR!!! not one dime comes out of their pocket. You would see how fast they would put a plan together.

They don't care about us. They are in office for one reason only. Easy street. Everything paid for by us and they make big money.

Keith McCall is retiring at 52 and $90,000 a year plus health care. Not bad.

Dear Editor:

Let me get this straight. Please be patient with me. I'm one of the tax paying homeowners. Our school taxes are going up so we can pour more money into the defunct state pension plan.

Well golly! If the bright lights from Panther Valley School District to Harrisburg say it's right, then who am I to argue. Just look what the bright lights have done for us the past 30 years.

Up the revolution!

Thank you

Carl Scott,
