Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Your commitment to keep your pets warm during cold weather can save their lives and eliminate a great deal of unnecessary suffering. Puppies and kittens, small animals, and short haired dogs are very susceptible to the elements and would benefit if a cozy sweater was put on them.

Dear Editor:

Dimaggio's La Dolce Casa is a beautiful restaurant with great food and service. Tamaqua should be ever so happy to have such a family and such a business in our little town.

Dear Editor

I saw on the news that PA. wants to charge a 4-1/2 percent tax on gas drilling wells. I am in favor of this along with a lot of PA residents. I would like Harrisburg to put a 4-1/2 percent tax on profits of all coal mines in PA. These mines are in depressed areas. They also do not pay their share of school, boro, and county taxes. Check it for yourself!

Toll Bros. owns a mountain in Coaldale, Lansford and Tamaqua. These towns are depressed. No jobs to brag about.

Dear Editor:

Hello Mr Castagnera and Miss Castagnera (The Generation Gasp column, Nov. 19 TIMES NEWS)

You are both right!

Firstly, I think it's poor business for any food server to be having a personal phone call during his shift. It's wrong and very unprofessional. What you should have done is placed a complaint to the manager etc. I would have done it, and I am sorry that it had happened to you for if I was that young man's boss he would've been canned on the spot.

Dear Editor:

This past weekend Route 309 in Tamaqua was closed to repair the railroad crossing on Center Street. Overall, the preparation and response by the local police, fire, ambulance and residents was commendable and allowed our community to get through the road closing with only a few incidents and as little impact as can be expected given the circumstances. I would like to commend Police Chief Mattson and the Tamaqua police for their preparation and responsiveness.

Dear Editor:

People of Summit Hill it's time to let politicians know what you think.

There are some that want to put SummitHill in another county.

This is Gerry mandering so they can make their seat in government more secure.

If you agree with me to stay where we are, sign the petitions or let your representitives know.

Don't let them push us around for their own benefit.

I Remain,

Robert ( Ski ) Siesputowski

Dear Editor:

In your coverage of the election results for country commissioner it state that Mr. Getz is quite upset - and sir I do not blame him.

Campaign literature in the name of Wayne Nothstein and Tom Gerhard was sent out to prospective voters in Carbon County. According to Mr. Getz these mailings raised falsehood in reference to Mr. William O'Gurek.

Dear Editor:

To Commissioner O'Gurek:

I want to address you as COMMISSIONER O'Gurek as the uncle that I have known and immensely respected all my life I believe knows how I feel about you. THANK YOU!! Thank you for the countless years of public service to our community, to our town, and to our county that portrays a record of excellence that I believe speaks for itself over the years, despite what the perhaps misguided and often misinformed public may say.

Dear Editor:

A recent letter by former State Representative Tim Seip, who was defeated in the 2010 election, criticized us for voting in favor of the 2011-12 fiscal year state budget back in June but failed to mention some very important facts.

Dear Editor:

Rep. Heffley's comments about respecting Veterans Day was welcome in Nov. 10 issue of the TIMES NEWS. However, in reading his short article the letter "I" was used seven times.

Now we realize that Doyle and his team were elected by us the folks in Carbon County. To my chagrin and disappointment Doyle, the word team, your team elected by us the citizens in our county does not include the letter "I". Please do not use Veterans Day as a campaign opportunity. It's not all about you but us not he "I" but the "we's."
