Letters to the Editor

From: The Federalist Papers, No. 78, by Alexander Hamilton

Saturday, April 28, 2012

While all of Pennsylvania continues to rebound from tough economic times, my colleagues and I have been faced with hard decisions geared toward reaching one goal: Practicing fiscal responsibility with our taxpayers' dollars to lower the state's debt. As a legislative body, we often ask state-funded agencies and school districts to do more work with less money and staff as we attempt to determine the best use of taxpayer dollars.

Dear Editor:

He looked down, kissing the face that was loving and kind.

Come on let's go for that walk.

Opening the door, looking out it was a perfect day. The kind he loved, warm, sunny, bright and in the morning. Hope the rest of the day is just like this. The weather is great.

How he hated the winter. It was long, cold and dark. It always reminded him of his brother. How he missed him. It was too lonely, all that time of the year. Well at least now he had a companion and the time went quicker and nicer.

Dear Editor:

I am writing this letter to educate the people of Lehighton and surrounding communities on domestic violence.

On Monday morning a hard working woman was brutely attacked by her ex-boyfriend in her home. He broke into her home and attacked her only weeks after appling for PFA at the courthouse.

She was told that she would have to attend a hearing to get the PFA. In the meantime this man was able to contact her place of employment and try to have her fired, and also was able to contact Children and Youth and have her investigated.

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.
