Spring Cleanup 2013, held April 6 this year, was again a successful community recycling endeavor.
The Rural Preservation Association of Northwestern Lehigh County is grateful for the volunteer spirit of its members and for the generosity of Lowhill Township for offering its municipal building and site.
We appreciate Carl Kressley and his crew who facilitated the set up and handling of the collection containers and worked alongside the RPA volunteers at the event.
If you ask my husband, Facebook will bring about the end of the civilized world as we know it.
While I'm not quite so apocalyptic in my thinking, a recent experience on Facebook really opened my eyes to the value of paying attention to your privacy settings.
I'm not a particularly private person. As the editor of the local newspaper, the line between work and home is often blurred.
Many sources have my office, home phone and cell numbers. And I've written about my life and personal experiences in columns.
That is the question
Whether it is better to refrain
from voicing our opinion
Or living with the results
of our decisions
Is something each citizen of voting age
has to decide
Could it be that you have always
voted for the wrong man?
To that, I reply,
Elect a woman!
Could it be that you feel your vote
will not count?
It will if you are registered!
Could it be that you are disappointed
with the quality of each candidate?
Think of how each of us
has disappointed someone
at some time

After reading the comments of Mark Graham, Ph.D (May 8 and 9 issues) regarding the Editor's View, (May 1 and 2 issues), I had to go back to read Deb Palmieri's article, which he referred to.
I found them in keeping with my own thoughts and position, which I base not to be racist, bizarre and hateful.
I guess this places me, per Ph.D Graham, a Nazi circa 1936.
Isn't it wonderful we can express ourselves in this fashion in America.
To the Editor:
Mark Graham's May 9 Letter to the Editor in response to Deb Palmieri's May 2 editorial motivated me to go back and look again at Ms. Palmieri's writing to recall more clearly the content.
What I found was an editorial openly patriotic, which Mr. Graham apparently considers being racist and bigoted, and which was not against all Muslims but instead mentioned Muslim extremists who did indeed plan and execute attacks within our country.

We've been hearing a lot in the news recently about acts of bravery.
When bombs were detonated April 15 at the Boston Marathon, dozens and dozens of parade spectators, instead of running for cover, rushed to the aid of the hundreds of victims.
Many lives were saved because of their acts of courage that day.
A few days later, hundreds of police officers placed themselves in harm's way in pursuit of the alleged terrorists.
These are acts of valor, to be sure.
Research suggests the average consumer is at least three generations from actually living on a farm.
With this longterm disconnect from our agricultural heritage – many do not have a basic understanding of how food shows up on our plate.
Often, discussions on food characteristics, food sources and food processing are based in misunderstanding. The food system we are privileged to take advantage of offers an abundance of safe, nutritious and typically affordable choices. A deeper awareness of this complex and productive food system may be a meaningful goal.
