Letters to the Editor

Saturday, April 14, 2012

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.

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."
