Letters to the Editor

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Dear Editor:

Just shy of two weeks after celebrating the nursing profession, you publish a totally biased article degrading every nurse who hasn't had the luxury of extra time or money to pursue her BSN. The entire article was written from the perspective of a nursing administrator who obviously has not done bedside care in quite some time.

Dear Editor:

With the recent Fish Kill in the Schuylkill River near Tamaqua, makes one wonder is the sludge and fly ash dumped in the pits have anything to do with it.

The area where they feel the problem originates is where the mine water flooded 309 a few years back, could this be the problem again?

Only this time the mine water is laced with God knows what that our DEP allowed to be dumped and swore was not harmful, but then again DEP and government is NEVER wrong.

Just a thought.

Dear Editor:

I am writing in response to the article published on Saturday, May 15th, 2010 entitled, "New dawn for entrepreneurs Carbon official throws first pitch in Entrepreneurial League System" by Al Zagofski. In the second paragraph, the article says, "Ferrante, Executive Director of the Carbon County Economic Development Corporation, has argued that the county's attempt to attract outside businesses is unlikely to succeed."

Dear Editor:

I find accountability to be an ethical concept on governance. As such it deals with responsibility and answerability associated with account-giving. In other words, accountability is acknowledgment and assumption of responsibility for actions, decisions and policies within the scope of a position. This entails the obligation to report, explain and be answerable for resulting consequences.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Concourse Club of Palmerton, I would like to thank the community for its support of our Basket Spectacular event that was held on April 10.

It is our major fund raiser and allows us the opportunity to give back 100 percent of the profit to the community to help various groups and organizations. We also provide a scholarship to a graduating female student at the Palmerton Area High School, as well as other monetary awards to deserving seniors of excellence.

One of the fringe benefits of aging is the cornucopia of memories we accumulate and cherish.

Unlike many pieces of trivia, which come and go during a productive lifetime, there are certain indelible events whose footprints intensify with time.

As a journalist, I have had many:

Some were the result of tragedy - a truck loaded with dynamite blew up near Marshalls Creek in Monroe County in 1964 killing six, injuring 13 and causing more than $1 million in property damage.

Dear Editor:

What you neglected to report the other day in your article about the Yuengling beer truck snapping off a telephone pole at the Five Points intersection is the disgust of Tamaqua residents over the amount of truck traffic in the borough.

Dear Editor,

Why can't we have two fire companies? West Penn Township is one of the largest, if not the largest townships in the state. We need two fire companies! God wants us to help each other and live in peace with each other. I think both West Penn and Andreas fire companies should work together for our township! One company cannot be everywehere.
