Ray Kelly remembered

Posted April 16, 2015 at 11:14 am

Editor:

In response to James Ira Kelly’s letter last week. I would like to reply that Ray Ellsworth Kelly has continued to be remembered at the First Christian Church in El Dorado Springs, where he worshiped regularly. All the people who remember Ray speak of him with great respect. He is remembered as being a very cheerful and dedicated person who loved his family, his church and his country. We have a stained glass window in memory of all the veterans but I know the lady who sponsored that window had Ray in her mind. Each year our High School Decca students, choir and band honor all veterans and different students wear a tag with the veteran’s name on it. The VFW participates and they are given a lovely recognition.

    Thanks for the Sun

    Editor:

    I received the March 19 issue of the paper on April 2. Why it took so long for these prison staff to deliver I have no clue. But I do want to thank you and let you know how grateful I am. It really helps to get my mind into a place to be able to read what is going on in the small town that I do call home.

    So, thank you so much for being so good

    No nukes for Iran?

    Editor:

    Well, we are about to come to the High Water of President Obama’s Presidency. He is going to initiate a treaty with Iran that will guarantee that they will never have Nuclear Weapon. Oh, Yes, and if you can bring yourself to believe that, then you can also believe in Santa Claus, the tooth fairy and that pigs have wings.

    We have one of the biggest flakes handling the negotiations for our side that ever weaseled his way into

    He likes Mike

    Editor:

    Today the good news is that Senator Mike Parson is considering a run at the Governor’s Office for the State of Missouri. What an uplifting thought it would be to have a man of principal and honesty for Governor of our state after what we have there now.

    Honesty is a rare thing for a politician in this day as so much of their time is taken up with raising funds and preparing for the next election as they

    Ray Kelly revisited

    Editor:

    I recently went to Washington D.C. on what is called the “Honor Flight” which is totally free of charge for World War II veterans. As part of this gift to us, we were having dinner at a large dining room at Fort Meade, MD.

    There were many very important (militarily) people present and several people were introduced to the Honor Flight guests.

    I could hardly believe my ears when I heard the

    Hello, my name is Adi, and I am a fifth grade student at Napa Valley Language Academy.

    Rudy was right

    Editor:

    At long last we have had a man with a recognized name and reputation tell the world the plain truth regarding Barack Obama. This is Rudy Giuliani the ex mayor of New York and Rudy put it in plain simple language where it is easy for every one to understand.

    Mr. Giuliani laid out the President’s past history in a manner that is simple to understand and straight to the point. Now we must remember that this is Rudy’s
