Letters to the Editor

Saturday, April 7, 2012

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.

Dear Editor:

I really believe, it is time for everyone, most importantly our government, to begin to realize that America is involved in a "religious" war worldwide, and the sooner we all understand this, the more prepared we will all be in remaining a united "One Nation Under Our God". Our present day military armed forces fighting in Afghanistan right now have become; too shorthanded, too over worked, too battle fatigued, and too many of them are losing their incentive, and much needed initiative to continue fighting in a war which appears to have no end in sight.

Dear Editor:

Kudos to the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Sanctuary Choir.

They did it again.

On 3-25-12 they presented the Cantata "The Shadow of the Cross"

The presentation was superb.

The choir was accompanied by piano,cello,oboe,flute and french horn.

Two Cantatas are presented each year. One before Easter, the other before Christmas.

In my opinion, our Choir Director is very professional.The church is lucky to have her, and this wonderful choir.

I was in a few Cantatas myself,and know the work and dedication put into the music.

Dear Editor:

Most recently I observed thru the media that food pantries and other organizations are seeing more people than ever before for food.

I give and help when I can – in this economy I fault our government, layoffs, and lower paid jobs.

Dear Editor:

So the Times News will send a reporter over 200 miles to Washington D.C. to cover an anti-health care rally but won't send a reporter 80 miles to Harrisburg to cover Redistricting hearings impacting Summit Hill and Carbon County (something ALREADY determined to be unconstitutional).

Sounds about right, given the newspaper's priorities these days. If Jerry Knowles was given advance notice of the proposed story, we'd have all the bases covered.
