Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

The Republicans admit that voter fraud at the polls is a rare issue. So why require so many of us to get voter ID at the last minute before the Nov. election?

So that the Democratic vote will be lacking!!! and poorly represented. So, Play fair Romney Republicans! Voter ID is not necessary!

Dear Editor:

Miller-Keystone Blood Center (MKBC) is challenged with recruiting more than 500 donors every day in order to provide safe and continuous supply of blood products to our regional hospitals. This time of year places significant barriers to these efforts, as school breaks, family vacations and increased travel prevent many individuals from giving the gift of life.

Dear Editor:

In regard to Adele Argot's July 25th story entitled "Subdivision given another time extension" may I set the facts straight?

Nancy May's comment about the last planning meeting was totally incorrect.

The Frable plan was discussed at our last planning meeting. There are outstanding engineering issues that the Frable's surveyor needs to correct so that the plan may be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors. According to state law, these items must be completed before approval.

Dear Editor:

On the news 12 dead 58 injured. Another reason for gun control.

I have no problem with gun owners having a weapon. My problem is when they have attack weapons and hand guns.

You don't need a weapon that can automaticly fire 100 or more rounds, you don't need a hand gun that's automatic.

These types of weapons are for war not for hunting.

There should be an amendment to any law that allows them in public, or make them harder to get.

Others may disagree but look at schools, theaters and malls where idiots just kill for the hell of it.

Dear Editor:

Go ahead wave the American flag and sing with gusto the Star Spangled Banner and cross your heart and take off your hat while you repeat verbatim our country's Pledge of Allegiance. Who's the real enemy of freedom in the United States?

Our grandfathers and great grandfathers knew with certainty back in the 1940s the answer to that issue. The name Mussolini galvanized them with hatred to risk their lives, knowing intrinsically that the principles of the Italian dictator were bad and an enemy to freedom.

Dear Editor:

Over the past several months and recently we have been plagued by the news media with political ads on outsourcing. Recently the best error my a major clothes manufacturer was with the Olympic uniforms that were made in China and not here in the U.S.A. Congress was quick to act to pass legislation to curtail further action. Right on this issue but not health care.

Dear Editor:

As someone who has been involved in some successes and some failures in public service, I think genuine criticism and discussion are important parts of the democratic process.

I am writing in response to Larry Padora's letter that appeared in your paper. This is the type of negative nastiness that turns people off from participating in elections and politics.

Dear Editor:

It was brought to my attention a member of Lansford Council made the comment to my husband, Tom Vadyak, that he should pay his taxes. That council person should have done their research before making that comment. The taxes that are owed are for 2012. Our taxes do get paid for the year they are due. We are not delinquent.

To answer this question simple consider the following from Sections 58 and 59, plus Section 52, in American Jurisprudence - Constitutional Law (16 Am, Jur. 2d):

"2. State Constitutions [Sections 58 and 59]

Section 58. Generally

Dear Editor:

It was six long months ago when I wrote to you and made the damaging proclamation that the beloved Joe Paterno was not a hero. My 'opinionated' life has been quite a roller coaster since the publishing, but nevertheless, it was well worth the proverbial ride. My opinions on how JoePa acted during some very crucial points in his life have been at the very least vindicated with the release of the Freeh Report. This vindication, however, does not make me proud or happy … in fact, it sickens me.
