Question: Generally, does a Citizen need a "Permit" or a "License" to exercise a constitutionally protected, secured and guaranteed Right?

First consider the definitions of the words: "Permit" and "License" found in Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, which states, in part for each word the following:

Dear Editor:

According to the March 6 edition of the TIMES NEWS Mr. Reinbold attended the Jim Thorpe Area School District board meeting. The article stated that you are pushing for a half time school at CCTI. Why?

This sounds like a decision Mr. Marro would make; he did not know how to supervise a technical school and neither do you.

Dear Editor:

I am writing because I am so sick of hearing and reading about our nation's military being bashed over and over again for the actions of a few who committed wrong doing. A little balance in reporting the whole story would be a good start.

Dear Editor:

While exercising at one of our local fitness centers in Palmerton, an acquaintance of mine, who is very very active in the local Legion organization - a current commander to be exact and who I've known and respected for many years as our children went to school together were having a conversation.

Dear Editor:

I'd like to be able to provide a paid subscription to USA Today, New York Times, or Wall Street Journal to Rep. Jerry Knowles (R-124), Sen. David Argall (R-29) and any other Republican or Democratic politician who persist in using "lost jobs"as their main reason for not supporting the enactment of a severance tax on the extinction of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania.

Dear Editor:

Did you ever believe you could be denied your right to vote in America? That only people with right credentials could vote? That only those people with government issued photo identification would be allowed to vote? Never happened before.

The majority Republican Party is now making an effort for that to happen with House Bill 934.

Dear Editor:

Within the past month a very well known celebrity in our state lost his job. "GUS." Now with the unemployment rate in double digit numbers, you would wonder why this concerns me. It shows lack of effort on the part of legislators to save jobs.

You might wonder why the lost of one (1) job in our state is troublesome and who is Gus? Well, he was well known for his commercials for his scratching, no he did not have fleas. Gus was and is the second most famous groundhog (woodchuck) in our state.

Dear Editor:

"Been there, done that," is a favorite catch slogan. Well, for me and the Lehighton Hospital, we have gone there again. Some time ago I wrote you about how proud I am of our hospital, and once again, after a total knee surgery I feel compelled to continue to heap praise on the staff of the "Lehighton Hospital."

Dear Editor:

I'm writing this letter as one of the auditors of Rush Township. When auditors go in to check the bills, you have the chairman of the board of supervisors, who never attended a morning meeting come in now in the morning and harass the auditors.

Whey they ask about a bill he calls the auditors dumb and that they don't know what they are doing and threatening to threw them out of his building.

The auditors aren't being paid to do the job they were elected to do.

Dear Editor:

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