Wonderful people are out there

Editor:

With all the negativism going on around the world and being put on television, newspapers, and radio, I would like to share something positive. A week ago my husband went to the doctor and a prescription was sent into Wal-mart for him. We went to pick it up and the insurance wouldn’t cover the cost because we were too early to get more of that medication. So I said we would wait until the insurance would cover the cost. A man that was behind me heard what was happening and stepped up and offered to pay for the $68 prescription. He said my husband needed the medication and he would pay the cost. We didn’t accept the offer and would wait since we had a week’s worth still at home. Neither my husband nor I knew

    Helms to celebrate 70th anniversary

    Editor:

    Braxton (Helm) and I grew up about one and a half miles form each other as the crow flies. But he was probably in high school before I was born.

    I knew his parents. In fact his dad told me one time, “I’m going to take you home with me, I don’t have any girls, only three boys."

    I took him seriously. I was probably about sex or seven. He came out

    Bud on Obama

    Editor:

    Well we see that finally Obama is taking Ebola seriously, in fact he is so serious about it that he has cancelled fundraising trips in order to show just how serious he is about the welfare of the American people. Just remember though the mid-term elections are just days away and he is looking at his hole card and it doesn’t look that good to him at this time.

    None of the persons running for reelection want to be

    Home Health Care

    Editor:

    I am a home care worker. I help people who want to stay in their own homes. I help with everything from bathing, showering, dressing, grooming, toileting, ostomy and colostomy care, transfers, range of motion, meal preparation, feeding, medication, transportation, help getting to doctor’s appointments… the list is huge. I do this work through Consumer Directed Services, and I am glad that I can make a difference in the lives of the people that have hired me. They thank me, and say that, if they could,

    Waiting for the election

    Editor:

    Well, once again our fearless leader is leading from the rear. It seems as if he is afraid to expose himself to the forefront.

    On Sunday evening he was interviewed by Steve Croft on 60 Minutes and for some 20 minutes he regaled us with his brilliance about war and finance and all these other things that he is so smart about. But the cap-stone was bragging about his putting together a collation 62 nations to fight the ISIS

    Loss of beloved pet

    Editor:

    This is a real difficult letter to write. It is about the loss of our beautiful yellow Lab. On Sept. 24, I had a sad knock on our door. My neighbor from the north stopped to make us aware that the dog had been killed by a vehicle. It appeared that the vehicle that hit him had been traveling north. It happened between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m.

    I really hope that it was an accident and not on purpose.

    Where’s my line?

    Editor:

    As a grandparent I have picked up my grandkids from school for several years now. But I can’t let actions of a pre-school teacher go unnoticed by the public.

    First I was the number “1” vehicle in line. There were no signs pointing that I was in the wrong place. I was waved around and she asked if I was picking up a pre-school student. I told her no and she started going off on me. I got back

    De-ja vu all over again

    De-ja vu. Do you sometimes get the idea that we have been there and done this at sometime in the past? Well, the Michael Brown and Darren Wilson case certainly reminds me of the fact.

    We have had Rodney King, O.J. Simpson, Travyon Martin and now the Michael Brown case before the public and we see the same actors on the stage and the same topic of bull-horn ranting and raving and always about “White Privilege.” That is always the topic of conversation. The Reverend Al Sharpton

    Mudstream media frenzy

    Editor:

    It appears to met that ever since the shooting incident of Michael Brown in Ferguson, the mudstream media has taken it into their own hands to make stories of it, even before all the facts come out. Granted, the mudstrem media has to sell papers; in order to sell papers, they have to make stories. They know that violence sells, so, in order to make stories, they have to provoke violence.

    I really believe that, if the media had gone in, made their story, and got out,
