Letters to the Editor

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Dear Editor:

While I was watching T.V. and all the negative ads, a thought came to me. What if all negative ads were banned. Will all political races end or will those running tell us why we should vote for them? It would be really different.

Also it would really be nice if Congress and the President got along. This has been on of the worst four years of administration I can remember with a do nothing congress that only does things when its election time. Don't you think this country deserves better then what we've gotten?

The Founding Fathers who wrote the founding documents of both the States and the United States of America knew nothing of "case law."

They were well-educated men and were learned in the law. Almost all were also devout Christians. Until after the War Between the States and the unconstitutional so called 14th Amendment, State Supreme Courts provided the final decisions and opinions in most cases.

Dear Editor:

A good nature walk is all that ya need to take, when problems, bills and tribulations exceed.

To get up and out to the trails indeed, is all the mind really needed to be set freed.

With your eyes open wide and suddenly your head clears.

Out of the house, off the couch and out the door to shut off our tears.

For the moment. just a minute or even an hour, suddenly your life's not so sour.

Frigid or warm, neither sunshine, nor storm, sleet or rain.

It doesn't matter, away goes the pain.

Dear Editor:

The subtitle to the front-page, huge font, under-the-banner headline, "Titanic story for the ages" (Saturday, April 14) is an outrageous hyperbole:

"April 12, 1912, left an imprint on the human psyche like no other single event in history"

Really? Of course it was sad when the great ship, carrying 2,223 people aboard, went down and more than 1,500 men, women and children lost their lives it was tragic.

Dear Editor:

April 21-28 is National Infant Immunization Week and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) use this week to highlight the positive impact of vaccinations on the lives of infants and children.

As a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at St. Luke's Health Center in Hometown, I see first and how important it is to vaccinate your child! I love when parents and caregivers ask questions about vaccinations and I encourage everyone to speak with their medical provider about vaccinations.

Dear Editor:

I want to thank you for your article on "The Bell of the Ball" held at Zion Lutheran Church, Tamaqua. Your article informed many people and helped to make this event a success. Through your support and the help of many communities we collected around 300 gowns and gave away 200 gowns (plus shoes, purses and jewelry).

People came from White Haven, Drums, Weatherly, Hazleton, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, Lansford, Palmerton, Pine Grove, Tamaqua and Mahanoy City.

Everyone who came left with the "perfect" gown and many words of thanks and gratitude.

Dear Editor:

Here we go again. Cry, cry, cry. Anyone looking to make extra money need only to invest in the Kleenex Co. or any other company that makes tissues and they will make a ton of money. While very brief I am referring to the March 31st Letter to the Editor penned by Mr. Billy O'Gurek Jr. I have several problems with his letter.

Dear Editor:

Increasing the safety of our citizens, providing a better quality of life for all Pennsylvania residents, and positioning the state for greater economic stability in the future are all goals we have focused on so far during this legislative session in the state House of Representatives. I am proud to say we have made great strides in each of these areas over the past year and a half.

Dear Editor

To Franklin Township Supervisors:

We are writing this letter to you today regarding the inhumane practice of the Township/Police Dept. in the slaughtering of the Canada geese at The Phifers Ice Dams. We realize/understand the main reason (their droppings) for wanting the 'removal' of the Geese, but are in TOTAL PROTEST of the method used: which is SHOOTING them at close range with a shotgun.
