Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

The organizers for the Rainsberg Cross Benefit would like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers and basket donors who helped make the event a success. We also appreciate having the opportunity to utilize the Nazarene Church Hall and the donations of paper products from the church as well.  Additionally, we would like to thank the Carrollton High School Basketball team for assisting by clearing tables. As many of you know, the efforts of Tom Cottis, Carroll County EMA, and David Wheeler, American Electric Power, were paramount in rescheduling a planned power outage for the day and time of our event and we are grateful for their work. We also would like to thank the more than 350 individuals who attended the event in support of the Rainsberg and Cross families. It is times like these that make us proud to be a part of such a caring community.

To the Editor:

I want to thank everyone who attended my concert last Friday evening at the First Presbyterian Church. Despite the heavy rain, you ventured out and I am grateful we could worship together. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Section 9 of the Declaration of Independence – a bill of indictment- reads:

“He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage migration hither; and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Land.”

It wasn’t acceptable at the beginning and still isn’t.

To the Editor:

As a veteran I am concerned with the chaos our Commander-In-Tweets creates with his child-like tweets. How can our military put faith in him when he continually tweets out ridiculous accusations and false information, and questions advice from his generals? How can we believe what he says?

Many tweets are designed to deflect criticism of him and move people’s thoughts in his direction. These diversionary tactics might work as the CEO of his company where he had absolute control, but it will not work with Congress and the media.

If Trump is to succeed and implement his policies, he needs Congress and the media on his side. He will not succeed by proposing half-baked policies, and insulting people and institutions that disagree with him. Executive Orders do not stand the test of time. They are easily rescinded.

Trump believes all publicity, including negative publicity, is beneficial, but this doesn’t work when you are President.

Our Commander-In-Tweets is sowing chaos, doubt and confusion in the minds of the American public, our military, and the world, and it is endangering the security of our country and our status in the world. Mr. President, please get normal.
