  • Animal shelter needs our support

    To the editor:
    I visited the Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter on Tuesday for the first time. I arrived there at 8:30 a.m. and was greeted by Allen Fryman. Mr Fryman was very courteous and informative about the shelter. He said that the shelter stays full a lot of the time and has an 86 percent adoption rate.  That is awesome!
    At the front gate are cages for people to leave unwanted pets after hours. I can remember when many people would just leave them on county roads to find themselves a home or die.  Some of those ended up on our porch.   

  • Honor those who served by failing to vote?

    It’s been a week since the primary election.
    I offer my congratulations to the winners and good luck to those who move on to the general election coming in November. May you earn a real mandate by the majority of the voters in the county for the general election.
    I am told that a 37 percent turnout for any election is huge. And, judging from the sheer exhaustion of Linda Furnish and the entire staff at the Harrison County Clerk’s office when the counting was officially complete Tuesday night, I have no doubt that it was, indeed, a large turnout.

  • Gas prices make no sense

    To the editor:
    As of today, I have missed receiving 18 days of the U.S.A. Today newspaper. I’ve called their 1-800-872-0001 almost everyday and talked too a lot of very polite people and been promised help, to no avail, I did check with my mail delivery person and the boss at our post office. According to both of them, 41031 has become a pariah. If you are a subscriber and not receiving a paper, please call the 800 number. If you are receiving a paper, may I buy your issues when you finish?
