  • Articles were insensitive

    To the editor:
    Regarding Becky Barnes’ article on the front page of the Democrat. She reported on two of our citizens.
    Maybe she thought Obie was a local character. I think he was a warm human who deserved better than that article.
    Also, William Chambers’ article was so insensitive.
    The information in these two articles could be found in the records section of the paper. It should not have been posted on the front page.

  • Remember Chambers’ last generous act of kindness

    To the editor:
    No matter what the circumstances of a persons death, we need to be sensitive and respectful to a grieving family.
    William Thomas Chambers was an organ donor. His death enabled at least four young people to have a chance for life. Let that generous act of kindness be our memory of William Thomas.

  • Chambers was an organ donor and saved four lives

    To the editor:

  • Two articles were in poor taste

    To the editor:

  • Saddened by inclusion of court proceedings

    To the editor:

  • No respect shown for Chambers family

    To the editor:
    We are appalled at the article written about William Chambers.  Not one good word was written about him and there was no respect given to a wonderful family, who has tragically lost a son!  
    Telling facts is one thing, but you shouldn’t have written anything about issues that have been dismissed.  The facts that you wrote about in your story had nothing to do with who he was or what happened at his death.

  • Disappointed in newspaper coverage of William Chambers’ death

    To the editor:

  • Melanoma Awareness Month

    To the editor:
    May is Melanoma Awareness Month. I want you to know of this horrific disease so that my father’s story does not become yours nor your patients’. My father was diagnosed with an early stage melanoma in August 2010. In October 2011 he discovered a cluster of malignant lymph nodes.
    By January 2012 the melanoma had spread to his lungs, liver, thoracic and sacral spine, and by May to the right adrenal glad and sinus cavity. Melanoma took his life one year ago this month — at age 52.

  • Many thanks to the Harrison County Vocational Schools’ carpentry class

    To the editor:
    On behalf of Rotary and our community I would like to publicly express appreciation to Gary Lail and his carpentry class students at the Harrison County Vocational School. In a community service project Rotary has been supplying materials and Gary and his students have been building and installing ramps for folks who cannot navigate steps. The students build the ramps at school and then they are delivered to the installation site.

  • Argo and the class of 2013

    To the editor:
    Did you catch it? It was a trailing sentence at the end of  Chris Terrio’s acceptance speech for the “Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay)’ Oscar  for the film Argo.
    Mr. Terrio finishes with this…“And so I want to dedicate this to…the people all over the world in the U.S. and Canada and Iran who use creativity and intelligence to solve problems nonviolently.”
