Letters to the Editor

Pro-lifers only care about controlling women

To the editor: After reading Rita Miller’s letter in Wednesday’s paper, all I could think was that another pro-lifer spewing religious nonsense as an excuse for dictating to women on their rights. In her letter, Mrs. Miller claimed that Roe v. Wade was passed under the “guise of ...

Thanks to all who cared for me in time of need

To the editor: August 29, 2019. When I started my day, I had no idea how it would be ending. You never expect the magnitude of a life-altering event, and looking back, I still can’t believe it happened to me. First, an enormous thank you to Dr. Sean Burke for saving my life! His ...

America needs to wake up to sin that is abortion

To the editor: Roe v. Wade passed in 1973 with barely a whimper of protest from the silent majority and first trimester abortion became the law of the land. There was no need to prove rape or incest or risk to the mother; just ask and it shall be done. This was under the guise of a woman’s ...

Climate change isn’t most folks’ biggest worry

To the editor: The crowd was pretty spirited at Louie’s the other day. Some of the regulars who hadn’t heard that Louie and Loretta had come back from Florida began to show up again. Ken was there, as usual: “That guy Trump gives me heartburn; he talks and talks. One day he says this; ...

Ryan’s plan to tax income of seniors is disturbing

To the editor: I am somewhat disturbed by State Rep. Ryan’s proposal to tax seniors’ retirement income in an effort to reduce or eliminate county school taxes. This, if achieved, would only add more taxes to the senior citizens already difficult burden. And mind you the elimination of the ...

Those wanting no more bull need a new candidate

To the editor: I see that it’s election time, and some folks who love our president are showing their support by flying “Trump 2020: No More BS” flags. However, the “BS” is spelled out in all its profane glory. I will set aside the questionable moral taste of displaying such a flag ...

The Lord blesses all the pro-life mothers

To the editor: This letter is for all the pro-life mothers. The Lord blesses you and keeps you. The Lord makes his face shine on you and is gracious to you. The Lord turns his face toward you and gives you peace. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil for you are ...
