Letters to the Editor

Boy Scouts

Editor: Dear young men of Cedar County: I appreciate the values that you have chosen to learn. The people that you are remembering cared in many ways the same about their brothers and sisters and their patriotism. I feel it is important for young men to be recognized and honored for their outstanding achievements. You

Free-For-All

Editor: For the last few weeks, it seems that the news has been dominated by sexual harassment and abuse charges. No one seems to be exempt from it: actors, producers, presidents, congressmen, teachers, etc. Both parties are using these charges for political gain and/or to hurt the opposing parties. I wonder (from both sides of

No on gun control

Editor: I am as liberal as you can get on a lot of issues, but gun control is not one of them. Gun control will not work. Prohibition did not work, it made the problem worse. Criminals got booze, criminals and terrorists will get guns. Many weapons are used to kill. Should we ban kitchen

Bump stocks just the beginning?

Editor: Obama’s ATF approval of bump stocks in 2010, which allow semi-automatic rifles to become somewhat a makeshift machine gun. I have to wonder if this might have been a deliberate act in order to enforce stricter gun laws in the future. With legislators wanting to ban the bump stock, if successful, they will have

Gullible

Editor: President Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents. Campus Reform took it upon themselves to try an experiment at George Washington University. The experimenters asked several students about Trump’s tax plan. Of f course, most of the students showed their distaste for the

Thank you MoDot

Editor: Early this morning MoDot put on overlay on Hwy. 39 from Hwy. 54 over to the point of intersection with Hwy. 32 at the west edge of Stockton. They did a beautiful job of resurfacing the roadway but they stopped without striping the roadway for traffic. The job must have been finished about Oct.

Gun Control

Editor: “Cryin’ Jimmy Kimmel” and other left wing celebrities were already pushing for gun control while the dead bodies in Las Vegas were still warm, hardly a moment to share grief for the lives lost. These celebrities like to work on the emotions of us citizens to push their agenda. In my honest opinion, I

Kill the messenger?

Editor: I am shocked and appalled that the Sun would chose to publish a letter to the editor with such bigoted and judgmental commentary toward a group of people. The overall topic of the letter may have been pertinent, but the imbedded message of hate deserves no platform in a reputable publication. Publisher’s note: Mrs.

Deer disease in humans?

Editor: After reading the rebuttal from the Missouri Department of Conservation written by their spokesman, Mr. Joe Jerek, concerning Larry Dablemont, I felt I was transported back to 1939, and was reading something written by the propaganda machine for Adolph Hitler. Remember their motto was, if you tell a lie long enough and often enough,

NFL Protests

Editor: I am in favor of the NFL protests. As much as I dislike them, it is one of the freedoms we are guaranteed under our Constitution. A number of players (over 200) from the teams have taken a knee or have decided not to come out of the locker rooms for the National Anthem.
