Letters to the Editor

A considered response

Editor: Thinking about “Angela’s” wish for more Muslims in congress, I wonder if “she” gets her wish, and Islam takes over America (our destruction is their goal), will “Angela” want to remain a “she,” become the property, one of a Muslim man’s “wives” but owned much like a goat (they prefer goats over cows) and

A people tax

Editor: Here we go again. Another government entity, the Cedar County Memorial Hospital board, want to tax property. As far as I can tell, property, farmland, cattle, equipment, etc., has no need for a hospital. A hospital is only good for people. What you need is a people tax. After all, it’s the people who

Six more years

It is so interesting to watch the political scene unfold day by day. When Obama was in the office of President, the Democrats had a built in answer if you did not like either him or his policies, “You’re just racist.” So, we bit the bullet and put up with eight years of our nation

Freda Flint – A legend

The Northeast Vernon County R-I community has lost a legend. Freda Flint was the brain, heart and soul of the Schell City school and eventually the Northeast Vernon County school district for many years. She began her service in the early 1950’s and continued until 2012! Freda was well known and respected for her knowledge

Be cautious when placing pets

Editor: The arrest of a St. Charles County man for allegedly strangling, stomping and dismembering cats he’d acquired through Craigslist ads is a reminder of the dangers of giving animals away without proper screening and other precautions. “Free to a good home” ads are magnets for cruel and psychotic people who seek easy victims for

Thanks for letting us destroy you

Editor: Once again we hear from the “Land of the Fruits and the Nuts” and as usual it gets a little nuttier each time. Oh yes, all we need is more Muslims elected to federal office to tell we non-Muslims of the wonderful benefits of following Allah. Don’t worry yourself, Angela, every major city in

Dear Community of El Dorado Springs

Editor: My name is Rita Miller and I want to share with you about the food pantry downtown at the Church of the Nazarene, North Campus, 217, N. Main St. Along with the Ministerial Association we are helping people in our community with a hand up – not just a hand out. We want you

We are all Americans

Editor: It is wonderful that the US House has two Muslim women in it. Hopefully in 2020, we will see more Muslims elected to high office in the US. Some of the Right-Wingers complain about Muslims being anti-Israel. That’s odd because the same Right-Wingers are usually anti-semantic and condone attacks on Jewish synagogues and other

Enforce our laws

Editor: When did it become the responsibility for the United States of America to provide food, clothing and shelter to all the poor people of Mexico and Central and Couth America? We have homeless persons in all of our major cities here in the U.S. so we don’t need to take in more until we

Dr. Casey supports hospital levy

Editor: Just a note in support of the current tax increase request from the local hospital.  The need for the local hospital is great. Especially in view of the many older folks that do not have the ability to go out of town for quality health care. The loss of our hospital would be detrimental
