Cock fight-round II

Editor: Well we have another Harris supporting the chicken farmers and are very much opposed to the CAFO rules by telling us that the big corporate people will come in anyway and knock out the family farmers. The different thing Ms. Harris is the big ones will have to go by the same rules and

Opposed CAFO rules

Editor: I have to speak up against the new CAFO ordinance. It will not stop the big multinational corporate companies from coming to this county should they decide to. All it does is make it more difficult for the individual small farmer to do business. The big companies have big money and a big payroll

Les Ray responds

Editor: In answer to Gary Vickers response to my letter: Nowhere in the letter did I state that the VFW or members thereof were unpatriotic as you accused. Furthermore, the flag at the cemetery was at full staff that morning when I went to honor my family members buried there. The proper flag etiquette is

In support of CAFO

In regard to Mr. Oren Harris’s letter of May 28, 2016, in the Sun Newspaper and June 1, 2016 in the Republican, his first paragraph says it’s all in the facts of our issue on the influx of Mennonite persons and the chicken business coming into our county. I believe Mr. Harris has a very

Remember Memorial Day

This week we, as a nation, observed Memorial Day. We traveled to the burial sites of our departed loved ones and placed flowers on their graves and spent a bit of time in remembrance of them. Or maybe we took advantage of the big “Memorial Day Sale,” or celebrated by having family bar-b-que. That is
