Letters

  • Letter: Superintendent problems started with the paper
  • Letter: Fix your pets, don’t be cruel

    Kudos to you for the column on “Don’t be a litterbug, get your pets fixed” by Weny Doric. Kudos again for the letter submitted from the St. Francis community about dogs (pets in general) being shot. I believe there can never be enough articles written and published about abandoned and abused animals.

  • Letter: No regrets about motives

    I usually do not respond to editorials. I consider it an exercise of futility,  after all the editor has the final word, however the last week editorial was of such a personal nature, I deemed it necessary.

    I suppose my decision concerning the superintendent could be viewed as a “flip flop” but, if so, it was a good “flip flop” based on facts and public sentiment.

  • Letter: Let our dogs run

    Our pets have run free in St. Francis for more than 100 years. Not once has a neighbor spoke or written a complaint against a dog crossing their yard. I am very grateful for the dogs in the neighborhood. If it wasn’t for the neighborhood pets we would be overcome with rats, possums, raccoons, rattle snakes, copper heads and coyotes. Most of which can carry rabies.

  • Letter: Please stop and help

    To the idiots who didn’t stop to see if I was hurt or dead after I hit a tree at WMES around 6:30 Saturday morning, were you in a hurry to get to work? If it was too cold for you, what about me? It was one degree, and the wind made it feel colder.

  • Letter: County did not give the superintendent a fair chance
  • Letter: Smith deserved better

    I want to commend Tiffany Adams on her article in last week's Enterprise. It hit a nerve in me that I haven't had in many years. It's the hot topic in the African American community. If I may quote you, you said that it's 2011, not 1911. Some people in this community are still stuck in time. You also talked about how some teachers acted out their prejudices when you were a student in school.

  • Letter: Embarrassed by the school board

    I am embarrassed to be a Marion County citizen after watching the recent school board meeting that dealt with Mr. Smith's evaluation. Only Mr. Mullins seemed respectful of dealing with facts and focusing on Mr. Smith's work performance. This meeting appeared to be held with a planned agenda. This meeting seemed directed to run him out of town. Congratulations - this is exactly what was accomplished.

  • Letter: Higdons have blessed the community

    New Beginnings Community Church would like to express our gratitude to Jimmy and Jane Higdon of Higdon's IGA for their service to their community. Jimmy and Jane Higdon donated a huge amount of food to many churches, including our own food ministry, allowing us to continue to help struggling families in our community. We pray God's continued blessing over them, and we wish them well in all their future endeavors. They are both true examples of Christ's hands and feet in our community.

  • Letter: Officials should be just

    How are your elected officials to rule?

    The Bible's II Samuel, chapter 23, verse 3 says, "The God of Israel said, the rock  of Israel spake to me, he that ruleth over men must be just ruling in fear of God."

    Thomas Jefferson said, "There is scarcely a King (or would be king) in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and all their children slaves forever."
