Letters to the Editor

Saturday, July 6, 2013

Dear Editor:

Just want to send you a little thank you from the Woman's Club of Lehighton for this past week's article. It was a great tribute to our Club to be honored through the Times News coverage.

Special thanks to Mike Heery for his professional "take" on our Woman's Club activities through the past 100 years. His article was accurate, factual and well written.

We felt he was able to transfer the pride we feel in the accomplishments of our Club onto your readers.

Dear Editor

Kudos to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. She would like to see, in her lifetime, a female U.S. President, as I would also.

It depends on women stepping up to the plate, and voting for a female candidate.

Many women understand budgeting, and running the household. Also. women are more capable of using common sense, again, in my opinion.

We have realized too much money wasted. Congress has been too extravagant. Our government proved this through the years.

Let`s go ladies. We can do better.

Dear Editor:

We write to you in response to a letter printed in the TIMES NEWS 6-22-13, submitted by Mr. David Yelito.

Mr. Yelito addressed the point that Schuylkill County DA Karen Byrnes Noon intends to have him removed as councilman in Coaldale. He seems to feel this action is unjustified. In the state of Pa., a convicted felon shall not hold public office; and Mr. Yelito, you are a convicted felon!

Dear Editor

This nation faces a frightening prospect. Our lack of investment in early childhood education adversely impacts this country's ability to create high-value jobs and compete globally. When we don't value investments in children early on in life, it has adverse implications.

Dear Editor:

I come not to bury Tom Corbett, but to praise him! What else can you say about a governor who wants to help those misguided property owner's who had the audacity to say that their shale gas drilling company's are "skimming off" their royalty checks?

Editor:

The title above sounds like a rock band. I wonder why no band ever chose to call themselves that name.

I was so curious about the pitch of the Cicadas' sound that I got out my portable keyboard and found the sound was our E note.

After reading an article in the TIMES NEWS edition on Saturday June 22, 2013 "Linda's Letters" – it said that Cicadas are tasty. I was thinking about contacting Paula Deen on the Food Network.

Dear Editor,

The old adage states you don't fix something that isn't broke. The Pennsylvania Legislature has violated this wise advice by taking unconstitutional action that threatens the integrity of the Commonwealth's judicial system.

Since 1868 the elected representatives of the office of Jury Commissioner have made sure that the jury selection process in Pennsylvania has been fair and that plaintiffs and defendants in civil and criminal cases have had an impartial jury.

Dear Editor:

I am taking this opportunity to respond to the lead article on the front page of last Friday's issue of the TIMES NEWS. That article indicates that the present appointed District Attorney of Schuylkill County, Karen Byrnes Noon, intends to have the court remove me from my present position as councilman here in Coaldale.

Dear Editor:

The Affordable Care Act, or ACA, which is commonly referred to as Health Care Reform, was signed into law by President Obama in March 2010. And one year ago, on June 28, 2012, the United States Supreme Court issued its landmark decision upholding the ACA provision that requires the purchase of health insurance, thus allowing all provisions of Health Care Reform to move forward as scheduled.

Dear Editor,

As an owner of two pit bulls (both of which were scheduled to be euthanized due to aggressiveness) I can truthfully say I am more concerned for our younger generation living in todays ignorant society than I am of ANY child coming into contact with either of my pit bulls.

In the three years I have owned them, I have yet to see what would justify euthanizing them. These two pit bulls have stolen my heart and have awakened me to some issues our society fails to recognize.
