  • Clarifying gossip

    To the editor:
    I recently had the honor to preside over the funeral services for Melissa  Hall.  In my eulogy I read a letter written to me by Melissa. However, I was  apparently not clear about when the letter was written causing some people to believe and gossip things that are not true. I just wanted to clarify that  the letter was written to me around one year before her death.  
    To the family, please know that I am still praying for you often, and to those overcome with the need to gossip, know that I am praying for you too.

  • Theft investigation

    To the editor:
    Someone walked into our home and stole our safe. Everything we had of value was in it. I called the Sheriff’s Office and Steve McCauley wrote up the report. He never came to our home to look for evidence. He just said if he finds anything he would call. You can’t investigate a crime without going to the crime scene.

  • Equal Pay Day

    To the editor:
    On Tuesday, April 12, thousands of women from across the United States will join in a national day of action against unfair pay called Equal Pay Day. April is symbolic of the point into the new year that a woman must work in order to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. On a national level, women are paid only 78 cents for every dollar a man is paid, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So, because women earn less, we must work longer for the same pay.
