Apple pie love letter

Posted May 12, 2016 at 10:40 am

Editor:

I would like to take this time to tell you a story of my mother, Earline Allison. Most people of the community know this beautiful soul. When I was eight years old I literally showed up on at the front door of my family home. My mommy was making an apple pie. The smell filled my home and was so warm and inviting I immediately felt safe. It is not easy to love a child with a traumatic history. However, even with these challenges, on Nov. 13, 1995. Karl and Earline Allison officially adopted Saree L. Allison. I want the people of my home town to really know and understand the patience, love, kindness and enduring love my mother has shown and taught me.

Never once did my mother

    ‘Ted Cruz our best hope’

    Editor:

    We are getting closer to finding out which Republican will oppose the Democratic candidate in the next Presidential election and I am sure the Democrat will be Hillary for as much as Obama hates her he still wants the office of President to be in Democratic hands and he, Obama, is holding the Justice Dept. and the FBI off her back as she is the best bet they have to retain the office of President.

    Now that brings us

    In praise of Community Springs

    Editor:

    My name is Rita Miller and I want to share with you and my town, my experience in the CMH Nursing Home. I had the pleasure and privilege to spend a week and few days. I have nothing but praise for the care I received there. I recently fell and broke my femur bone above the knee, had surgery in Bolivar and then transferred to the nursing home for therapy five days a week.

    I can’t say enough for

    Deputy sheriff not welcome

    Editor:

    On Tuesday April 19, 2016, the sheriff’s office, specifically Tabitha Nance Taylor, brought paperwork to my office. After leaving the wrong papers and returning to reclaim them,she walked in the door of my office and yelled my name. Then coming into my office with clients in front of my desk she interrupted the meeting with my clients, demanded her papers and continued yelling at me.

    As I tried to close my door protecting my clients’ interest she became confrontational

    Response to Shipp

    Editor:

    In response to Angela Rachel Heather Shipp’s letter last week, I have been encouraged to make a response. I disagree that most people think that Planned Parenthood does not provide other services than abortion. I think most people do know that they provide other services, but do believe that they provide more abortions than any other clinic in the United States. I also believe that women, the elderly, the working poor, single moms, and children can get the same (or even better) services with the same

    Tourism – invaders ain’t tourists, leave

    Greece is over run. Turkey is over run. Same for others. All Countries like visitors/tourists. Most nations have compassion for desperate people. No nation shows this more than America; 1800s Irish Potato famine and Europeans after WWII. America welcomes tourists. Problem is tourist metamorphoses into “J-Bird eggs” in the nests of the national economy that must fund those not wanting to become Americans. They want to take what belongs to Americans, and remain mid-east Muslims, Africans or Latins. It is not our taxpayer’s job to feed outsider “J-Birds” at the expense of their culture,

    Contested Convention

    Editor:

    It is very likely that we might have a contested convention in the GOP this year. Just what does that mean? If a candidate does not beat the 1,237 delegates needed in order to win the candidacy outright, there may be a contested convention, also known as a “brokered” convention, under the presumption that powerbrokers will negotiate backroom deals in order to determine the ultimate nominee.

    If this should happen, both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz could be tossed

    Planned Parenthood – Not just abortions

    Editor:

    Planned Parenthood seems to be under attack by quite a few people around the country who have not done their research to see what a fine organization it is.

    Most people think Planned Parenthood is an abortion clinic only. Wrong.

    All over the US, Planned Parenthood offers medical services to a wide variety of people, including the elderly, the working poor, single moms, children, and others who might not otherwise have access

    Weak-kneed in Georgia

    Editor:

    Georgia’s House Bill 757 was designed to protect ministers from having to perform same-sex marriages against their religious beliefs, religious institutions from having to rent their building for the same purpose, and allowing business owners to close down on Saturdays/Sundays to keep Holy the Sabbath Day. This bill, after some changes, passed in the State Senate by a margin of 38-14 and in the State House of Representatives by a margin of 161-0. This bill was vetoed by Governor Nathan Deal, a Republican, on March 28th,

    Value-Not always in the voter’s eyes

    Editor:

    Do ya want to grow up to be president? It is not important if ya know nothing. Not relevant if ya have never owned nothing or paid the costs of a successful business. Ya don’t even need a college degree (although I have 330 semester hours: 10 years and three degrees). I would not take the ethical pay cut, so I would not be interested in the job. If anyone needs to see my transcripts: trust me-I can dig’em up. They are buried behind my teepee
