  • Grow thick skin and ‘get thou over it’

    A writer friend in Denver once got a letter from a now-former reader of hers who said not only would she never buy another of my friend’s books, but she would tell all her friends to boycott them too.

    The reason? The reader accused my friend of quoting from a “lesbian” Bible.

    According to the reader, supposedly the Bible translation my friend used may or may not have had a lesbian on the team of translators.

    If I told you the Bible translation you’d be shocked since it’s probably the most used modern English translation worldwide.

  • Mother asks for help keeping daughter’s memory alive

    To the editor,

    My name is Lisa Poteet and Kayla was my daughter. Since that horrible day on Nov. 24, 2008, when our precious Kayla was taken from us, this community has continued to show our family love and support in so many different ways. It has meant so much to us and we will never be able to thank you enough.

  • Government assistance isn’t fair

    To the editor:

    This is in regards to a previous letter to the editor about government assistant programs.

    I was told to divorce my husband, then I could get health care and other assistance. I am a diabetic and was told this in 2004. My husband of 43 years has had five bypass surgeries and six stints since 1993. He finally decided to stop working in 2001, after being told stress of work was causing his heart more harm.

  • Postal food drive is a success

    To the editor:

    It is hard to put into words the thanks and gratitude to the people of this city and county for your generosity and support of the Harrison County Food Pantry. You just out did yourself again this year. Over 4,000 pounds of food was collected. A great big thank you goes to our postal employees that collect and weigh all this food. I know this is extra work, time and effort on their part, but without them, this would not be a success.

  • Park activities should be moved to Flat Run Veterans

    To the editor:

    This is a first for me - a letter to the editor - but there’s something I need to say to our city and county officials after the last flood. I’m very proud of the job that our current recreation director, Rick Chasteen, has and is doing at River Road Park. However, we’re still at River Road Park and not moving very fast, if at all, to the new park we have on Oddville Avenue. Let’s do what’s best for the kids and residents of the county - move to the new park and empty space we have there.
