Letters to the Editor

Friday, December 23, 2011

Dear Editor:

This letter was suggested by Tamaqua Police Department Personnel, who said that I should write this letter to make people aware of a problem at the Five Points in Tamaqua after I told them how I was almost hit 5 or 6 times by a vehicle. This happened at the Five Points intersection in the past two months in Tamaqua.

Dear Editor:

Fellow citizens of Carbon County,

This election cycle, the people of Carbon County voted, overwhelmingly, across party lines to elect Republicans to "right the ship" after years of Democrat control and corruption. County Commissioner Wayne Nothstein and Commissioner- elect Tom J. Gerhard soundly defeated the team of Commissioners Getz and O'Gurek.

Dear Editor:

Please see that this article gets in your paper. I think it is very important to the people, not only in this town of Tamaqua, but every town. It is about the ringing of our church bells.

I wrote an article about it last year and sent it in to all the churches here in Tamaqua. I only heard from one of them, Zion Lutheran Church. I also heard from a lawyer from town who told me I was right in what I said in the article. The church committee from Zion Church said the same thing.

Dear Editor:

If anyone is celebrating Christmas without realizing the true meaning of Christmas as being the most wonderful birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the only Son of God, they shouldn't be partaking in this glorious Holy day at all. If non-Christians want to celebrate a day of gift giving with "Santa Claus" as their main character of preference to represent their holiday. They should choose an alternative day of the year rather than December 25th.

Dear Editor:

Having been born in 1950, in the Allentown area, life was very different as compared to now. One of four brothers and a sister, my parents were very loving, they taught us right from wrong and good from bad. Life was simple and a lot easier than things are now. We grew up watching Ed Sullivan and Art Linkletter and when things were real big news Walter Cronkite would tell the world what was, as he did when John F. Kennedy was shot and killed on that sad day in Texas.

Dear Editor:

I am taking a moment to acknowledge the hard work of many people involved with the recent Lehighton Area Lioness Lions Club Breakfast with Santa event held at the Lehighton Recreational Center.

Approximately 200 people attended the breakfast and enjoyed a breakfast of waffles and sausage. Children dropped off their letters to Mrs. Claus and then visited with Santa where they received early Christmas gifts.

Dear Editor:

Can you vote?

Maybe not. Although it is your right to vote as an American citizen, and you have been voting for many, many years, you may be prevented from doing so in the future unless you have a government issued photo I.D. Scary, isn't it?

Dear Editor:

I am a Lansford borough councilperson and have been addressing the wrongful taking of benefits by the board members of the Lansford Coaldale Joint Water Authority.

The municipal authorities act is quite clear, to receive benefits, health care and pension you must work fulltime at the authority. The stipend is set by the boroughs, Lansford and Coaldale at $300 a year, they receive $2,250.

Dear Editor:

I am writing so the people who have been writing and calling me about my son Joseph who was brutally beaten by five Coaldale firemen on Sept. 25, 2011, to let them know nothing has been done yet. D.A Goodman wants to read Joseph his Miranda Rights, which has never ever happened to a victim.

Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Carbon County Economic Development Corporation for inviting me to speak at their recent annual meeting. The theme of "Building Economic Success Together" is one of the most important goals of all successful economic development organizations around the country.
