Letters to the Editor

Saturday, April 21, 2012

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.

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.
