Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Abraham Lincoln would not have been elected president in 2012.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Kidder Township Board of Supervisors, the Kidder Township Community, and all our emergency services units (the police department, three fire companies and ambulance rescue squad), I want to publicly thank Carbon Commissioners Nothstein, O'Gurek and Getz (now retired) and Gerhard for their efforts.

Dear Editor:

I recently read a Letter to the Editor from Mr. Schickram about Joe Paterno. I still wear all my Penn State garb - hats - caps - sweaters - jackets - whatever and wear them with pride.

If you watched the recent show on TV about Joe Paterno and listened to his former and present players and sponsors you would have learned a lesson you apparently did not know. Probably, I think because you hate Penn State! So who needs you? You called Joe Paterno a hypocrite and didn't even know him. How dare you?

Dear Editor:

It seems like the big thing these days is the inequality all over the world and in this country/

Some of it could be cured if congress took pay cuts plus get rid of ear marks for all lobbyists.

Then maybe some of them could see what its like to be in the middle class.

They should pass the president's plan to put veterans to work. Also I was at the V.A.

Dear Editor:

After reading Steve Schickram's wonderful account of what a hero is, I have come to the conclusion that he should have played football for PSU so that he could have learned some of life's basic lessons from Joseph Vincent Paterno.

Dear Editor:

As a freshman student at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, Governor Corbett's proposed budget sends chills down my spine at the thought of it.

A proposed 20 percent cut on top of the 20 percent cut as part of last year's budget to Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) schools sends the wrong message to young adults across the state, that message being that education is not a priority of this administration in Harrisburg.

Dear Editor:

The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission is considering a very bad proposal that will cause further harm to America's last wild bison population, the beloved bison of the Yellowstone herds. These wild buffalo already suffer constant harassment, abuse and killing.

Dear Editor:

There's talk about thinning our military. I wonder if it is a wise thing to weaken our country at this time.

We still have to worry about North Korea, the Afghans, Iran and pirates.

Plus there's enough unemployed now without increasing it.

Also, these cities and states have to stop financing sports and building places for them. If they're making so much and paying such crazy wages to players they can afford to build their own.

Take the money from sports and put it into education. The kids need it more.

Dear Editor:

One of the important issues facing the United States today is health care. Legislative and institutional reform is rapidly changing the way medicine is practiced in this country. Original clinical studies are now being shown to have serious flaws. This new research highlights the safety risks for citizens and the need for the Federal Drug Administrative (FDA) to issue new warnings/advisories about these drugs.
