Local School District Control Slipping Away Again

Local School District Control Slipping Away Again

Editor’s Note: When the author refers to Pa. Congress, she is referring to the Pennsylvania Legislature

Warning, Pa. Congress looking to take more local control away from students, parents, taxpayers, and local school boards! One day while having nothing to do, I did the common core standard thing and started reading the education bills of the 2015-2016 Pa. Congress’. What to my wondering eyes should appear but SR. 52 and SR 53 legislation “directing the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee to study the cost effectiveness of consolidating school districts “#53 in both services and positions in this commonwealth.” These 2 resolutions were referred to Education Department on March 12, 2015. The Culprits who

Pain Makes Life Endurable

Share

By John McCartney

The movie, “Tea House of the August Moon” (1956) opens with Marlo Brando, playing Sakini, an Okinawan native, sitting cross legged on the ground, leaning against a palm tree. He gives a short history of Okinawa, a Pacific island, which has been invaded a number of times over its history by military units of foreign nations. He describes how those invasions caused pain for the island’s inhabitants, and finishes saying, “Pain make man think. Thought make man wise. And wisdom make life endurable”. That phrase caught my attention and over the years, during my musings, I have found myself mentally revisiting that scene of the movie and Sakini’s monologue. His statement regarding the relationship of pain, thought, and wisdom was

Indoctrinating our Children

To the Editor

Lehigh Valley Commentator

Re: State Department wants to use movie “Frozen” to indoctrinate children in the myth of a Global Warming Crisis

 

Dear Sir:

News organizations announced on Saturday (1/24/2015) that a U.S. State Department government bureaucrat wants to use Elsa, Anna, and Olaf – the characters in Disney’s enormously popular movie “Frozen” — to indoctrinate young children with the statist myth of a Global Warming Crisis. See the details here.

These young children have no scientific knowledge nor the critical thinking skills to refute this government indoctrination which is in defiance of the scientific FACTS –

1.) global temperature has been stagnant for 17 years despite an 11% increase in CO2,

2.) polar bear populations and Arctic ice

Who’s telling the truth about taxes in Lehigh County?

Share

Photo courtesy of the Lehigh Valley News

Remember Tom Muller? He is the Lehigh County Executive who claimed that the tax cuts of the past three years amounted to only a happy meal gimmick. Is it really a gimmick or real? Listen to Commissioner Mike Schware explain during a radio interview about the actions the County Commissioners that controlled the budget took, and how they actually reduced the previous 16% tax hike of 4 years ago without cutting into the County Stabilization fund or cutting services. This happened because a slate of Commissioners that was elected to work together to reform Lehigh County government has completely changed how the Commission operates. They have shown through their actions and the many bipartisan,

Rodale Purchase by Emmaus Borough

Editor’s note: This letter was originally sent to the Borough of Emmaus and is reprinted here with permission of the author.

February 15, 2015

Dear Manager Pepe and Borough Council Members,

Please allow this letter to convey my concern over the approval to submit an offer on the purchase of 33 East Minor Street and the adjacent properties. I wish to thank Councilman Shubzda for his financially responsible decision to oppose the purchase of these properties at this time.

The Borough Council has a fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of the borough. Concerns over the recent decision by Council are certainly not without merit.

In reviewing the presentation, I note the following:

“This meeting is also designed to be an active conversation with both Council

For America’s sake, Republicans must dismantle Obamacare

Share

To the LV Commentator,

For years, those of us who oppose Obamacare, albeit for quite legitimate reasons, have been labeled “crazies,” “rightwing nuts,” “racists,” and worse. Recently unearthed videos of an architect of Obamacare, MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, have not only vindicated Obamacare’s opponents, but have also revealed the deceptive tactics that were used to enable passage of this egregious law.

In one video, Gruber flaunted his chicanery as a “very clever, basic exploitation of the lack of understanding of the American voter.” In another, he stated: “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, you know, call it the stupidity of American voter or whatever. But basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.” Gruber also admitted that

Legal vs Illegal Immigration – Point of View

Share

Letter to Editor

President Obama’s recent Executive Order in favor of “illegal” Immigrants is an affront to every “legal” immigrant that has waited patiently on line for their turn to enter the America!

What would you say if after standing in line for hours for a ride at Disney World, some people pushed and shoved their way to the head of the line? What would you say to your children if they stole from a local store or church? Would you tell them it is okay because they only want better things for themselves and the only way they can get them is by stealing from others?

The country of my birth was devastated by Hitler’s invasion during WWII leaving our country in a state

LVTP Honors Veterans

Share

Letter to the Editor

I attended “In Honor of our Veterans and Military” at the Charles Chrin Community Center on Nov. 7th. Sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Tea Party, and chaired by Ronnie DelBacco with Tom Campione and others assisting, a comprehensive three hour program with 19 participating organizations showed how veterans help their own and how civilians also can support veterans. The program started with the youthful Civil Air Patrol #801 from Allentown as the color guard, and was followed by a 12 year old, who beautifully sang our National Anthem. Next were the girl scout and boy scout awards to two local veterans. The speakers included Mrs.Valerie Ferguson who along with her husband Blair sends monthly packages to servicemen and servicewomen, then the
