Letters to the Editor

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Dear Editor:

After reading Rep. Knowles' response to Carolyn Padora's letter to the editor, I was both amazed and disgusted.

Dear Editor:

As a Panther Valley School Board member, I have always believed that when we make rules and policies that they should be followed and are for everyone, however, I have come to find out that is not always the case.

As you probably already know, the Panther Valley School District adopted a dress code policy, a policy which provides specific guidelines for students to dress as they attend the school district, all buildings. For those parents who have adhered to the policy, I commend your for your efforts and thank you for your cooperation.

Dear Editor:

I just found this old newspaper clipping and it fit so perfectly with what happened at Chardon High School. So I just changed the name in the article. It read:

This should be printed in every newspaper around the world.

It says it "all" about this world we live in.

Dear God:

Why didn't you save the school children at Chardon High School?

Sincerely,

Concerned Student

And the reply:

Dear Concerned Student,

Because I am not allowed in public schools.

Sincerely,

God

Dear Editor:

I wanted to write and express my appreciation for the employees at The Hanger in Carbon County Plaza.

I took my students with special needs on a field trip to the Carbon County Plaza to work on teaching them money and shopping skills. When we entered The Hanger, the employee who was working that day welcomed my class with open arms. She made it a point to speak to each child and attempt to engage them in conversation.

Dear Editor:

The Carbon County Navy Club Ship 260 would like to let all women warriors know that we honor you and respect you for your commitment and service to your country.

At this time, we would like to tell you that you, who were Navy, Marine or Coast Guard, would be welcome at the Navy Club. And if you were Army, Air Force or civilian would be welcome as an associate member. We are at this time the newest veteran organization in Carbon County.

We meet the last Monday at 6:30 p.m., at the Nesquehoning VFW, 30 E. Center St., in the meeting room.

Dear Editor:

I can't help but notice getting stuck at the red lights on the 443 intersections between Aldi's and 209. The light turns red and we sit to no cross traffic, meanwhile large backups form.

The newer lighting controls with sensors and PLC's are the way to go like the ones that were put in at the new Wal-Mart intersection. It'd be great to get that system installed and get a much smoother traffic flow through that section of 443.

Dear Editor:

In a recent edition, there were two letters to the editor from our local legislators. One was from a local senator and the other was from a local representative. In the response from the senator, he stated the facts why he voted for the recent Marcellus Shale bill, a bill that strips power from local communities to protect themselves from drilling activities. The bill requires local governments to allow gas operations in all zones, including residential and agricultural areas with few restrictions.

Dear Editor:

Every religion has its version of the Bible.

The burning of the Quran was said to be an accident. People have died over this. However, we have apologized and so has our president.

Let's face it folks, we're talking about people who treat their women like garbage. They have no problem with killing their own people. They take our training, our weapons, our money and our help when nature raises hell.

Then they treat us like garbage use our money against us. Use our weapons and training against us. Shoot or kill our servicemen and burn our flag.

Dear Editor:

I would like to commend Barbara A. Conway, superintendent of Jim Thorpe Area School District for not closing the school system on Feb. 29. There are many single parents that have a very limited time for visitation with their children.

My visitation is only over holiday timeframes during the school year. One make-up day over Easter recess would have cost me four days of visitation. As it stands, I only get my daughter for about 14 days during the school year. (Christmas and Easter).
