Letters to the Editor

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Dear Editor,

The day before Al Zagofsky's article "Penn's Sons Twice Stole Pennsylvania" was printed, referred to the Jim Thorpe connection to the Walking Purchase when I sent in my membership dues to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. Although I'm pretty sure Bright Path did not know about it, I am surprised that his sons ignore it.

They should be proud. Shame on them.

Dear Editor:

A month or so ago one of your more mature readers sent you an amazing contrast of life growing up in the 50s and 60s comparing then to now. I apologize for not remembering his name, but his memories and contrasts of time, respect, responsibility, maturity, and doing the right thing in all social situations was spot on.

Having grown up in the 50s and reaching the age of responsibility in the mid 60s his comparison touched me deeply.

With your indulgence, I would very much like to add to that comparison.

Warning sign exists at Glen Onoko

Dear Editor,

I just finished reading your column entitled "Glen Onoko Let the rescue season begin."

I've hiked that area many times and yes, it is quite hazardous to trek there. And yes, I have witnessed sheer stupidity on the Glen Onoko Trails.

You mentioned "Maybe warning signs could be installed alerting the dangers of the path to the falls, and educating people on what time of apparel and footwear should be worn."

Dear Editor:

Congratulations to columnist Terry Ahner for his column published in the May 18 edition of the TIMES NEWS.

It is right on target.

The pit bull is a menace and should be banned just like in England.

It's an idea whose time has come.

Thoughtfully,

Verne P. Urban,

Brodheadsville

Dear Editor:

After reading Mr. Castagnera's column in the 6/1/13 issue of the Times News in which he recounted the scandalous misdeeds of Pope Alexander VI, I was reminded of the familiar saying: if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

In two previous columns, printed 3/23/13 and 3/30/13, both Mr. Castagnera and his daughter, Claire, wrote disparagingly of the Papacy in the person of the then newly-elected Pope, Francis, and in general of the Catholic Church of which he is the symbol by virtue of being its Universal Pastor as the successor of St. Peter.

Dear editor,

Seventeen years ago we moved to PA from Baltimore in hopes of a better place to live and raise a family. Some family was already here for college and decided to stay. Upon visiting PA several times we wanted to make PA our home. My wife and I always dreamed of having a large house in the mountains for both families to come together to spend quality time. In 2009 we found our dream home we thought that the rest of years here would be complete.

Dear Editor,

It is sad when no help is available. The VFW and American Legion should be in an up roar. People should care that Lee, N.H. does not want Homeless US Military Veterans in their neighborhood because it will devalue surrounding property values.

It is a shame that this will end up in court taking time and money away from helping homeless US Military Veterans.

Dear Editor:

First, I'd like to wish Bob happiness and fun for being grandpa and thanks for his help with veterans needs.

For the new editor, I wish you luck and happiness also in your new job.

Now, I'd like to state that in my 75 years I have never seen a president hit with so much B.S. He was elected BY THE PEOPLE.

Dear Editor:

I am very thankful I am no longer affected by the Vietnam War, I feel I was tricked into believing was necessary to save us from being taken over by Communism according to our government, a seemingly long time ago in our American history. I just hate to see young people in America still being coerced into believing it is their patriotic duty to go die in some foreign, unnecessary war to now save America from being taken over by Islam.
