Letters to the Editor

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Dear Editor:

There are those who have dismissed global warming as a hoax seized on the weather as validation of their point while prophets of climate change said it was yet more evident of a planet in peril. Indeed, our planet is being besieged by that lady of reckless and devastating storm venues, Mother Nature herself. She's on a recurring rampage, belting-out the worst weather she can conjure up to make our lives hell; destroying towns as tornadoes whip ultra-violently throughout many areas of the United States.

Dear editor:

The following is my opinion on all the stories about Joe Paterno. My God, he was a fantastic coach. What his assistant coach did, those writers should blame everything on him, not Coach Paterno.

All this on telelvision, radio, and in the newspapers should stop. Put the blame on the right person.

I worked in the newspaper trade for 46 years and now days I am sick and tired of all this going on about a great coach.

Dear Editor,

To the Panther Valley Football Association:

Yesterday, I picked up the paper and after reading the sports section I could not believe it.

The Scholar Athlete Award was given to the WATER BOY/equipment helper! He never even played!

ARE YOU KIDDING? What a Joke!

What a way to slap the face of the players who played their hearts out, with sprains, sore muscles, broken bones and dedication to the sport.

Is it any wonder why the enrollment in PV sports is declining?

Imagine my surprise Sunday morning discovering that my car was a victim of a hit and run driver. I can only surmise that the driver was under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The damage to my car and the incovenience and monetery loss is typical of an impaired driver. The insurance copany declared this accident a total loss.

This Christmas morning is my first without my mom, Mae Tout. Last year she was home for two days from the hospital to spend her last Christmas with us. My mom had been suffering from renal failure for three years and her body could not take the dialysis anymore, so the doctors made the decision to stop everything, and call Hospice.

Dear editor:

As the year 2011 draws to a close I cannot help wonder what resolutions I will make to improve my lifestyle. It seems that every year we all do the same ole stuff. You know – clean the garage, take out the trash, lose weight and be nicer to your spousal equivalent.

Well, I have a different idea for next year. I'll call it "remember the first time." Think about all the happy moments we had in our life with the many first-time experiences we had. You know ... when I first shot my first buck, got my first car (boy, was that a bucket of bolts).

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to our local law enforcement officers and whom ever answered my 911 call on the evening of 12/28/2011. I want to explain my dilemma and what came of it. I answered a knock at my front door around 6:20 p.m. and a young black male claimed he was from direct power and was checking to see if I had recieved my rebate check he told me he needed my PPL bill.

Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to all your readers who drive:

I am asking for your help to ban photo traffic enforcement in Pennsylvania.

As a motorist, you know how important road safety is when exercising your inalienable right to freedom of travel.

Photo enforcement exists to raise revenue. It does this by causing more crashes, injuries and fatalities. Money, not safety, is the goal.

Dear Editor:

This is in response to ex-reader Kris Moyer's letter that was published in 11-26-11 newspaper. Let me just say I am grateful he is an ex-reader since he obviously doesn't appreciate a lot of things in life.

First and foremost. Reason 1 is a total contradiction since he says that all Robert (Ski) Sieputowski does is complain. Correct me if I am wrong but that is what you're doing Kris.

Dear Editor:

On December 17, two commentaries - "History will judge role," by Ann McFeatters, and "War's finally over - sort of," by Dale McFeatters - shed light on the absurdity of Obama's claim that our military really is pulling out of Iraq, the fact that the US will have a huge presence in Iraq forever, and the fact that there was no justification for a US invasion of Iraq in the first place.
