To The Editor

I agree with Republicans government spending must be cut.

I also agree with Democrats.

Loop holes in taxes have to be closed and the wealthy must pay their share.

Plus Congress should start to do things for the country, and not worry about their re-election.

If they do good for the country they don't have to worry.

They will be re-elected.

If not, get rid of them; they don't belong there anyway.

We should really limit them to one term of 5 years.

Robert ( Ski ) Siesputowski,

Summit Hill veteran

Dear Editor:

For several school terms, a dress code has been an issue at the Palmerton Area School District. News articles have reported on the view points of students, parents, teachers, administrators and school board members. Maybe it's time to hear from the people supplying the money - the taxpayers!

Dear Editor:

Diabetes and its complications is one of the leading causes of death in the United States today. I suggest that there needs to be more awareness by the public and our political leaders about this disease and the effect it is having upon a large segment of the American population.

To the Editor:

This letter is just a short note for the public.

Number one, I find it amazing that PennDOT keeps reminding everyone about safety on the highways. District 5 administrators either don't know what safety is or don't care about safety. It is now going on two weeks since the storm washed the gravel on the truck runoff ramp out. The ramp is now closed to trucks.

The dumb or stupid sign on the top says run off ramp closed, use truck pull of. My what intelligence. All trucks pull off and gear down.

Dear Editor:

I would like to take this time to thank numerous Carbon County businesses that elected to sponsor the 1st Annual Carbon County Soccer Cup. This charitable tournament that will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2011 will help promote and bring awareness of childhood and adolescent mental health needs through a collaboration with the Bo Tkach Memorial Foundation.

Dear Editor:

I would like to congratulate the Tamaqua Area School District on winning their assessment appeals. I find it hard to believe that they can take pleasure in raising the property taxes on all 54 of these property owners during rough economic times that we are going through.

Dear Editor:

I attended the Service of Remembrance in the Lehighton Park Sunday evening, Sept. 11, and left there humbled to say the least. I want to publicly acknowledge my thanks to LIFE for planning and presenting such a fulfilling program, as well as thank all the participants. Their contribution was so very much appreciated.

Dear Editor:

Ÿ Over 5,000 years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovels. Mount your asses and camels and I will lead you to the Promise Land."

Ÿ Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your ass and light up a camel! This is the Promised Land."

Ÿ Today Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your ass, and raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land.

Dear Editor:

Young dairy promoters devoted hours to promoting the dairy industry at the Schuylkill County Fair, which ran from July 31, 2011 to August 6, 2011. Between the 12 members of the dairy promotion court, ranging in age from 7 years to 21 years, the Schuylkill County Dairy Promotion Court managed to make its presence known to the Schuylkill County community.
