Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

The letter by Candidate Dan Milleson (published May 17, 2018) states that the political ad “End Game of the Democrat Party” is not true and factually not accurate. If it is totally accurate: it is what is going on in our country today.

Candidate (Milleson) speaks of toxic tribalism? Our native American Tribe of Indians had a saying White Man Speak With Forked Tongue. Very true today.

Candidate (Milleson) says he believes that moving to the middle will help solve our problems! This is Democratic double speak and gobelty gook, which in reality means let’s move the left, then push on to socialism!

Steeple to Street

This past weekend we celebrated Memorial Day. There were parades, barbeques, picnics, family celebrations, and the like. There were speeches and moments of respectful silence given at cemeteries all over the land.

Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of the month of May to honor the men and women who died while in service to our great nation. The movement to have a “Decoration Day” began shortly after the Civil War to honor its military dead as monuments to fallen soldiers were erected and dedicated and soldier’s graves were decorated and ceremonies were held to honor those who died serving our country. After World War I, those ceremonies expanded to honor all of those who died in all American wars. It is a most solemn time.

The month of May began with the National Day of Prayer for all America and ended with Memorial Day. We pray and honor Americans for their service to our nation whether they are in our military, in government service, in state or local government, in education, and those who serve the American people in business. Memorial Day is the capstone of praying and honoring our military for their supreme sacrifice.

Some advice and experiences from the President of the Carroll County Animal Protection League:

Now that the warmer weather has arrived, the president of the Carroll County Animal Protection League is offering tips to keep your dog (s) safe!

Warm weather and heated vehicles: It is a known fact that the temperature inside a vehicle can reach 100 degrees or more even if the temperature outside is 75 degrees or above if the vehicle is parked in the sun. Even a vehicle parked in the shade can heat up quickly if the temperature is above 85 degrees. Leaving the windows down a crack or even halfway, does not eliminate the need for a dog to cool down from the heat that rises in the vehicle which escalates when sitting still. If the dog cannot reduce its body temperature by panting, and if it is breathing in hot air from inside and/or outside, it cannot cool down. After a brief period of time, (within minutes) the dog’s body temperature goes up and very quickly this can be the start of heat exhaustion. Once this happens, the brain is affected, and this can result in “brain frying” and is common among animals (and children) left in hot vehicles in a very short time! If the animal is not taken out of the vehicle, given cool water, cold towels applied, and the chances of getting to a veterinarian clinic quickly are not an option, the dog may die. My word of advice—let Fido stay home where it is safer for him or her.
