Media Providers in Cedar County

Posted June 25, 2015 at 10:05 am

Editor:

As chair of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life committee, I would like to thank residents of Cedar County for their generosity and support. Seven teams participated in this year’s event, raising more than $17,000 to further the American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. The outstanding support received proves that the people of Cedar County are truly committed to the fight against cancer.

I want to applaud the 52 survivors and caregivers that participated in the opening lap and the survivor recognition. They are the reason we continue the fight because each year there can be more and more people living wonderful lives following a diagnosis of cancer and celebrating

    Good luck, David

    Editor:

    Well today David Shipp came out of the closet and opened the door into why he believes the way he does and has such a distorted view of life and politics. He is a female, and not just any female, he is transgender from what God made and is turned into a man-made version of what some people think God had in mind when he came up with Adam and Eve.

    Now I don’t think there is anything wrong

    Bridge to somewhere

    Editor:

    I have no doubt that the new Pape bridge is a “bridge to nowhere” for “Buck” Snodgrass, as he has no interest in traveling in that area. But for many who do travel there; for about a dozen people it is a bridge to their house of worship each week; to a few others an often daily “bridge” to their farmland across the creek, and for me a shortcut to many members of the Pape church.

    Robert indicated he

    Shipp joins Jenner

    Editor:

    The unveiling of Caitlyn Jenner this past week not only opens a new door for her, but hopefully will open new doors in the acceptance and respect of all transgender people, including myself. The publicity surrounding Caitlyn’s big life change is bound to help bring us closer to acceptance at least among a few people as news stories of this magnitude often do foster understanding.

    Only people like Caitlyn and myself know what this is all about. Unless you

    The Rock Wall

    My how things chance in a week, no, make that overnight, when you are talking about high water. I made a note last week to remind you of the way around the closed Clear Creek Bridge on Hwy. H south of Taberville. Davis and I went that way a couple of times trying to get into fish going over the road at Schell-Osage: turn left on gravel at O Hwy., cross the bridge over Big Clear, turn right at the intersection and go north to Hwy. Y.

    Saturday, I had heard the

    Thank you for the flowers

    Editor:

    The ladies of the Progress Club of El Dorado Springs would like to thank everyone for purchasing flowers from our annual Memorial Day Sale. Those are given to us by the caretakers of the Clintonville, Harwood and El Dorado Cemeteries. We clean them and get them ready to sell. Otherwise the beautiful flowers are destroyed. This is a good recycling project as well as a good fundraiser for our club.

    Some of the benefits from our sale are: Scholarships,

    BRIDGE TO NOWHERE

    This is a picture of the Pape bridge last week after a lot of rain. There has been controversy over this bridge since before it was built. It cost a lot of money to build and here is the end result.

    I have talked to people who say, “the bridge was funded by government money so it didn’t cost the county.” Again look at the picture. Even if government funds paid for the bridge, could not those funds have gone elsewhere in the county

    No questions for Billary

    Editor:

    Well, the Democratic front runner is making for a very different type of campaign from the start. At this time she will not take any questions unless it is a pre-arranged setting and they have stacked the meeting with stooges who are going to ask questions that she is already briefed on and had ready answers for as she is leaving nothing to chance. Now it may not get too interesting for those of us in the peanut gallery until we get all the way to

    Open up MDC land

    Editor:

    You log, farm, pasture and hay MDC land but people can’t ride their horses or mules across it. There is a percent of land set aside for horse riders and it is small. Schell City Wildlife Area is farmed, but the reason I can’t ride my mule is MDC is afraid I will start some erosion there. What do you think farming does? Tractors do more harm than my mule does. Muddy tractors carry mud to the roads and then gets thrown off covering the gravel
