  • Letter: Support groups here to help

    Grief is a journey that all go through. It can be debilitating. Grief affects us all in many ways emotionally, physically and spiritually. There are times in life that we can get stuck in grief and are not sure how to get through the heartbreak. Fall will soon be here and holidays are just around the corner, both are difficult when dealing with loss.

    Ban assault weapons

    Days of prayer and reflection are appropriately called for by President Obama after the massacre in Aurora, Colo.

    This was a welcome first step. But it is only the first step.

    Moral, responsible, principled leadership that addresses the ongoing slaughter of people around the United States is long past due. 

  • Letter: Appropriate punishment

    I oppose the death penalty for Aurora shooter James Holmes (and all murderers) -- it's too damn good! But so are prisons' libraries and weight rooms. Make him repay society via:
    1.) Work: sort garbage for recycling, dig ditches for America's infrastructure, pick crops for America's farmers;
    2.) Tests: new drugs, treatments, surgical techniques, food additives (eliminate animal tests, PETA!);
    3.) Donations: blood weekly, spinal fluid and marrow monthly, half his liver annually (it grows back), one kidney/lung/eye, etc.

  • Letter: Old problem, old solution

    A solution to an old problem in our community is Jesus Christ. Let me begin by saying as someone who has attended church practically my entire life, it is hard to let others know you are a follower of Jesus.
    In this country we have forgotten the freedom to attend church. Easter and Christmas as national holidays. Leaders in our country must believe in God or this would not be so.
    To believe in Jesus is one thing, but to say he is the answer seems to feel uncomfortable to let people know.

  • Letter: Care for your pets

    My dog and cat are truly my best friends. They ask for so little and give so much!
    I only hope that these animals are provided fresh water, food, shelter, and shade all through the year.
    We have a great shelter in Marion County. Unwanted and abused dogs and cats can be taken there.
    Have a heart and care people!

  • Letter: Where to get answers about hemp

    What is it? Where is it? How do we get it?
    At the Marion County Agriculture Center June 16, at 2 p.m., this is open to the public.
    Is it true that Daniel Boone was wearing hemp underwear under his buckskin clothes?
    Is it true that the first Model A Ford had 40 percent hemp on it body frame? And it ran on industrial hemp gas?
    Is it true that you can make over 100 items from hemp?
    Is it really true that we are importing industrial hemp from 33 countries?
