To the Editor:
We have subscribed to the East Penn Press (and possibly its forerunners) since we moved here in '84, largely because we felt it was important to support our local community. But over the past year or so, we have become more and more concerned about the vitriolic right wing editorials that appear under the byline of Deb Palmieri.
She is of course, entitled to her opinions, but I find those opinions to be outrageously FAR far right wing, and often personally disturbing. Professionally, I find them to be oddly out of place in a small town newspaper.
Thomas G. Treskot, 60, of Salisbury Township, died February 3, 2013, at his residence surrounded by his loving wife and family. He was the husband of Jane L. (Nenscel) Treskot. They celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary in January. Born in Palmerton, he was the son of the late Charles and Dorothy Mahler Treskot.
He was a parts counter associate at Lehigh Valley Honda, Allentown, for 42 years.
It was Super Bowl Sunday, and I was home alone. With my husband out of town, Sunday evening was all mine to do as I wished. I was looking forward to having complete command of the TV remote.
I started the evening watching a recorded episode of "Downton Abbey," the current Masterpiece Classic series.
When 6:30 p.m. rolled around, the episode had just ended and I surfed the TV listings for quite awhile. In the end, finding nothing else of interest to watch, I decided to turn on the Super Bowl game after all, but not really to watch the game.
