Letters to the Editor

Be cautious when placing pets

Editor: The arrest of a St. Charles County man for allegedly strangling, stomping and dismembering cats he’d acquired through Craigslist ads is a reminder of the dangers of giving animals away without proper screening and other precautions. “Free to a good home” ads are magnets for cruel and psychotic people who seek easy victims for

Thanks for letting us destroy you

Editor: Once again we hear from the “Land of the Fruits and the Nuts” and as usual it gets a little nuttier each time. Oh yes, all we need is more Muslims elected to federal office to tell we non-Muslims of the wonderful benefits of following Allah. Don’t worry yourself, Angela, every major city in

We are all Americans

Editor: It is wonderful that the US House has two Muslim women in it. Hopefully in 2020, we will see more Muslims elected to high office in the US. Some of the Right-Wingers complain about Muslims being anti-Israel. That’s odd because the same Right-Wingers are usually anti-semantic and condone attacks on Jewish synagogues and other

Editor: When did it become the responsibility for the United States of America to provide food, clothing and shelter to all the poor people of Mexico and Central and Couth America? We have homeless persons in all of our major cities here in the U.S. so we don’t need to take in more until we

Dr. Reynolds favors Hospital levy

Editor: Over the past decades I have watched the administrators of CCMH shepherd the resources of our hospital with great insight and frugality.  Times and economic forces have placed enormous strains on small rural hospitals.  I hope every voter will step up and approve the CCMH levy.  Our hospital is the hub of local access

Passing of a Hometown Hero

Editor: I just learned of the passing of Bill Browning. He was one of my favorite people! I don’t know if many of you knew him because Bill was pretty low-key. You would never know by talking to him that he was one of America’s heroes and that’s sad. We need more heroes like Bill
