Please seriously consider and then lawfully act upon the following facts and law:

Pennsylvania was one of the original States that ratified the 1787 Constitution, which created the United States of America as a constitutional republican form of government.

Dear Editor:

Who in their right mind does not like to talk about money? Their financial dreams?

The winning lottery numbers? Oh! But to sleep... to dream. At least they are tax free..so far!

Dear Editor:

I thoroughly enjoyed your article about clothes lines, until I got to the last paragraph.

Your statement about there probably aren't any clothes line in the entire TN area is not entirely true.

I have four clothes lines in my backyard that still use every spring, summer andfall, just like your mother! In fact, when we moved into our house 12 years ago, I insisted that my husband put up clothes lines come spring! Which he did. In fact, I have several neighbors that have clothes also.

Dear Editor:

It has come to my attention that Carbon County and surrounding areas have an abundance of veterans.

Therefore, I am surprised that the memberships in veterans organizations are on the decline.

The VFW, American Legion, AMVETS, and Navy Club are all hurting. Some even had to go out of business.

Veterans parades are poorly attended.

Some fundraisers don't meet expected goals. Meeting requirements to work with the area is becoming harder each year.

These are the only organizations where a vet can go and other vets share experiences.

Dear Editor:

William Taylor Reil says he has been studying the Constitution for 21 years. You think in all that time the guy would have learned something. It is really irresponsible of you to print his drivel on nullification - a doctrine already discredited when Sen. Calhoun represented South Carolina. It is also irresponsible for you to advocate law breaking. Note that Mr. Reil does not call for civil disobedience, but rather for simply breaking a law.

Dear Editor:

Recently I read an article by Jim Zbick about "Obamacare" and last Wednesday an article from Gail Maholick about "Obamacare" and I truly admire the hypocrisy in our nation's healthcare debate and the lack of coverage of what our state legislature/Governor are up to in relation with "big government."

Dear Editor:

The recent controversy between the President Obama's Healthcare mandates for employers has caused quite the uproar within the Catholic Church. Can the government force the church to provide benefits that conflict with the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church? This is an issue that will not be resolved quickly or easily.

Dear Editor:

With trepidation, I'll summon attention to the recent public school news not reported by mainstream media.

A Mass. school principal renamed Valentine's Day "Caring and Kindness Day." She then perverted St. Patrick's Day into "O Green Day." This attack on the Catholic Church is an assault on our religious (Catholic and non-Catholic) freedom.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of myself, my daughter Jess Kutza, and the American Cancer Society Telethon Committee, I extend deepest gratitude to everyone who supported our Annual ACS Chinese Auction held in the Lakeside Ballroom on Sunday, March 25th.

Dear Editor:

Oh, Mr. Urban - how wrong you are about "Bet there's not a clothes line in the entire TIMES NEWS circulation area!"

Did you ever travel around Towamensing and Lower Towamensing Townships? Several people hang clothes outside on nice days.

I don't own a dryer, so I hang clothes outside when it's nice – the breeze helps "iron" the shirts and fluff the towels!

When it's not nice enough outside, I have an enclosed porch to hang things where they they can dry. Even if they hang out there for a couple of days, it's OK. I just plan ahead.
