Letters to the Editor

The Rock Wall

After the Farm Bureau annual meeting Friday night, I asked Kalena Kenney for help summarizing the speech she gave. What I got in an email Monday morning was a big surprise. It was Kalena’s entire speech. From my front row table sitting with Pete and Murnie Fast, I never saw Kalena look at any notes.

Can’t Escape Politics

Editor: It is not even funny that one cannot escape politics. It is in the workforce, entertainment, sports, churches, and just about everywhere else. One cannot even relax watching football as several players will kneel or sit out the “Star-Spangled Banner” in protest. Even the Miss America Pageant has become involved with the contestants being

Chronic Wasting = Mad Cow?

Editor: The Missouri Department of Conservation has a “Tiger by The Tail” and don’t know what to do with it. They act like the little boy who is walking past the graveyard and is whistling to himself in order to keep his courage up and hope everything will be all right. Chronic Wasting Disease is

Suppression of Free Speech

Editor: George Orwell once wrote, “If liberty means anything at all, it means to tell people what they do not want to hear.” Dissent is essential to allow all points of view to be given and considered.

Drive-In Theater “Throwback”

Editor: If you missed the FUN of this past Thursday evening at the old El Dorado Drive-In Theater, I hope you plan RIGHT NOW to make the next event.

Editor: I read all three letters to the editor with interest last week. I even agree to all of them to some extent. However, I found a few things lacking in two of them. In the letter from the Ministerial Alliance, I totally agree that one must still love all people regardless of color, sex

Is hate ever OK?

Editor: When is hatred right?  We can hate sin; We can hate the devil, but is it ever correct for a Christian to hate other people?  The hatred displayed in Charlottesville, VA, by the KKK, the Neo-Nazis, the white supremacists would surely be condemned by our Lord.  Some caucasians were advocating to  take our country

Will we listen?

Editor: I realized only to well that Barack Obama is no longer President, thank God. But does he know this? There is word that even though he is out of office he is maintaining a shadow government to keep President Trump from undoing anything that he has accomplished is his eight years in the office.

It is time to fix immigration

Editor: Everyone or their ancestors came here from some place else. They came here because they thought that it would be better here than there. The urge to go where things will be better may be the most powerful of all human urges. Nothing, no wall, no ocean, no mountain range has been an effective
