    To the editor:
    I am writing to support the candidacy of Linda Furnish for Harrison County Clerk.

    Dear editor,
    For any of you running for an office in this country, you need to spend a few hours at the Berry Center after 4:00 p.m. for an extremely full house scenario of why the Center is so important. If the Center is closed where will these 15 - 20 kids go after school? Where will the adults go that use and so desperately need this access to the tech world? If they are like me, they don’t have reception at home, or they can’t afford the price of such conveniences.
