Letters to the Editor

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.

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.

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.

Of course, this took off like wildfire among the liberal sites. It’s a shame that one cannot use decorations that might offend someone. The everyday life

Please remember to be careful when crossing streets with the increased traffic. Make sure children have learned to use marked crosswalks and know traffic safety. Young children

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.
