Letters to the Editor

Saturday, December 29, 2012 - Updated: 6:10 PM

Be it hereby resolved ...

To the editor:

My top resolutions for 2013:

1) Love one another.

2) Plan to put more pressure on our politicians to get your point across.

3) Try to stop wars all over the world.

4) Tell someone that you hurt that you're sorry.

5) Help someone that society rejects.

6) Finally, if you're Roman Catholic like I am, go to confession more and pray more because it works.

Happy new year.

Dave Gomula,


Do what must be done

To the editor:

Over a sixty year career span, dedicated efforts have been consistently pursued through art promotions to create incentives that would engage all citizens, not only outdoor sportsmen and women, to actively participate in conservation and forest protection projects so that future generations could inherit a strong healthy habitat and eco systems that were cared for and preserved.

Intelligent, carefully crafted management designed to always safeguard both wildlife and their natural habitat, as well as recognizing and combating the ever increasing dangers of climate changes, are the required tools needed to achieve the ultimate successes that are sought.

Parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, as well as concerned educators uniformly agreed significantly expanded classroom activities directly focusing upon guaranteeing the well being of majestic forests, woodlands and wildlife in general, should commence in grade school, onto middle and high school graduates, will produce future generations that are educated, engaged, energized and well equipped to forever protect our cherished natural treasures.

Hopefully the clearly obvious necessities of doing what must be done now will prove to be the incentives every citizen needs to step forward and become totally proactive in this overall endeavor.

Anthony Biscotti,


Sharing a common goal

To the editor:

Project Action, tobacco-free coalition of Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery counties, educates the community about tobacco-free outdoor areas around playgrounds, parks, businesses, college campuses and other grounds.

Parks, playgrounds, beaches and other recreational areas should be places that people can go to enjoy the outdoors, breathe fresh air and exercise. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, secondhand smoke exposure causes disease and premature death in children and adults who do not smoke. Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, acute respiratory infections, ear problems, and more severe asthma. Also, cigarette litter is dangerous for children and bad for the environment. It can take up to 25 years for cigarette butts to biodegrade.

As the community educator for domestic violence and crime victims services of Catholic Charities of Fulton and Montgomery Counties, I proudly partner with Project Action. We share the common goal of healthy families and a safe community. Should you need more information on tobacco-free outdoors, visit

Ginger Cato,
