Letter to the Editor: Columnist’s views on Sunday hunting don’t add up, outdoorsman says

In the Times Leader’s Outdoors section on July 12, I read the column by Tom Venesky to “Put wildlife first in Sunday hunting debate.” He claims that we have about 277 days to hunt, with 37 days for the archery deer season. Wow! He concludes his column by saying he feels that the hunter has […]

The Music Box Players instituted a program of free theater for special needs people, young and old. The theater was packed even though it was a very rainy evening. When the […]

Letter to the Editor: Improve safety at Harveys Lake with speed limit reduction, not biking ban

I read with disdain a column in the Times Leader suggesting that it might be time to ban running and bicycling on Lake Shore Drive at Harveys Lake because of the inherent dangers from vehicular traffic.

A report made available by the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board regarding the planned closure of Meyers High School appeared in the July 3 edition of the Times Leader. Although informative, it also raised questions. Two things we all probably can agree on are: • All decisions should not be emotionally motivated. • The only people […]

Letter to the Editor: Provide Luzerne County Veteran Affairs Office with proper personnel, training

The Luzerne County manager, Robert Lawton, is refusing to honor the county’s responsibility to our veterans. For more than a year, he has not made it a priority to ensure that the Luzerne County Veteran Affairs office is adequately staffed.

Letter to the Editor: Buoy program at Harveys Lake goes adrift

Having lived at Harveys Lake for most of my life from the age of 2 (I am now 65), and enjoyed its very great pleasures, I care deeply about the community. Indeed, my father was a leader in the formation of the borough, brought about due to concerns over the water quality of the lake […]

Letter to the Editor: Grieving mother sees need for post-addiction rehabilitation facility in Valley

Having lost my daughter to drug addition this past year, I felt compelled to give my view. There is no greater heartache than losing a child.

Letter to the Editor: America largely undeserving of God’s blessing

How many times have we sung “God Bless America?” Why would God bless America? Five members of the Supreme Court voted to make abortion, death penalty of the unborn, legal. The government voted to make drugs legal even though we have a major drug problem in America. Then five members of the Supreme Court voted […]
