"I hope I still have freedom of speech"

 

Dear Editor,
 
I thought I had seen it all. A suspect individual was advertising the impeachment of President Barack Obama across the street from the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office. President Obama inherited this mess (the wars, the deficits, the complete deterioration and the steadily increasing criminality of America since the Reagan era). Is there really that much freedom of speech in Cuero? My questions are as follows: Does the man who runs the service station own it? Why not the impeachment of the dumb Bush? 
 
It would have been sad to me except I couldn’t quit laughing at the stupidity of it all. I hope I still have freedom of speech.

Donation appreciated

 

Dear Editor,
I would like to personally thank St. Paul Lutheran Church in Yorktown for their generous donation to our center.  Our residents much appreciate the your thoughtfulness. We are anticipating to purchase an electronic device for our residents to utilize and communicate with their family members local and long distance. We have a successful center, and because of community members like you, we are able to keep our residents available to modern technology.  Again, thank you for thinking of our residents.

Dear Editor,
Kudos to Yorktown City Hall and its employees for their hard work at the walking trail. It looks really nice. I am sure the community appreciates your hard work. So citizens of Yorktown, let’s rally them on and keep it clean by picking up our trash. Thanks guys.

System gone bad

 

Dear Editor,
Victories in House of Representatives (from Waste Watch, Washington, DC).  During the debate on Farm Bill, H.W. 1947, the House defeated an amendment offered by Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) that would make household personal hygiene items available for the supplemental nutrition assistance program, or “food” stamps. The amendment was defeated by a vote of 123-297.
 
Can you believe it, folks? That some Democrat governing North Carolina wanted personal “comfort” items to be sold as food? We can all create quiet a long list of items that would pass as “personal.”
 
I know of people who could use some extra help with food but couldn’t, or can’t, get it for one reason or another.  And others who get help because of devious ways of beating the system.
