Letters to the Editor

Save our hospital

Editor: Back in the early spring I stated experiencing severe pain and swelling in my left leg. After a trip to the doctor and some tests at the hospital the result was a blood clot. I got to spend a couple days in the hospital, staff and care was great. The swelling also had caused

Reality…Truth

Editor: Republican Taliban? Republicans debate their opponents, the Taliban decapitate theirs. That makes the above terminology self-contradictive. Just like today’s explosion of fake news. Reality. It exists and is immutable; non destructible. Each person has only one of three options. 1) Try to escape it. Drugs, alcohol, etc. Always temporary and to wake the next

Not a yard sale

Editor: To emulate Jeff Foxworthy, It might not be a yard sale event though the clothes on the clothes line are hanging on hangers. It might not be a yard sale even though there are things on the back porch you might find inside the house. It isn’t a yard sale if there is no

Don’t shoot the messenger

Editor: I was surprised when this newspaper published a letter to the Editor titled, “Write On,” published June 26.

Puzzled

Editor: I have noticed several times while traveling south on Main Street (Hwy. 82), situations where the traffic has had to allow oncoming cars to clear before proceeding to avoid hitting a parked vehicle.

True traitors are Dems

Editor: Once again in this topsy-turvy world of politics we have the pot calling the kettle black. With this brain dead Democratic party we have a host of wanna-be Presidents who can’t do anything but had-mouth the President and call him a traitor for doing the job that the Democrats don’t have the brains or

A considered response

Editor: Thinking about “Angela’s” wish for more Muslims in congress, I wonder if “she” gets her wish, and Islam takes over America (our destruction is their goal), will “Angela” want to remain a “she,” become the property, one of a Muslim man’s “wives” but owned much like a goat (they prefer goats over cows) and
