Letters to the Editor

Stop the crazy and impeach

To the editor: Ignorance describes President Trump. Ignorance describes anyone who chants “Send her back.” Have differences of opinion on policies and ideals, but do not be a racist. Almost all of us are immigrants. In this day and age of DNA testing, we should realize how much we ...

Time to stop crying wolf

To the editor: When I was a youngster my mother told me a story of the little boy who cried “wolf.” Briefly, it tells of a young lad who knew that all the neighbors would come running to the rescue if a wolf should be threatening the flock of lambs each of them had raised. The boy called ...

Band puts on enjoyable show

To the editor: The Tri-State Community Band, under the direction of Johnny Leonard, gave a wonderful performance July 14 at the Prime Time Center. The band played a variety of songs, including show tunes, standards, marches and patriotic music. A highlight of the show came when World War ...

Letter not really surprising

To the editor: As a senior citizen, I’ve been around, I’ve heard it all and I’ve seen it all. So, I wasn’t surprised to read Rob Denham’s letter of July 7 (“Accusations are a tiring game.”) His comments are typical and show he’s part of a patriarchy that has been ingrained ...

Community help needed

To the editor: My name is Jeanne Marie George, and I am reaching out to the community for help for a longtime resident of Jefferson County. Several months ago the horse barn of Anita Whitman was severely damaged by a storm. Parts of the roof were ripped off along with sides of the barn. ...

We must protect the environment

To the editor: I am grateful to Randi Pokladnik for her column published in the Herald-Star on July 14 (“Another look at the planned Belmont cracker.”) If we intend to leave a healthy environment for future generations, we must act. We can and must elect people of integrity to public ...

Looking for a witch doctor

To the editor: In an orgy of frustration to remove President Donald Trump from office, Democrats have stopped at nothing to keep costly investigations going. After the $25 million Mueller report found Trump innocent of Russian influence, litigious liberals and a biased media doggedly persist ...

It’s our chance to step forward

To the editor: It wasn’t that long ago our president and the American people knew Supreme Court opinions are not always the law of the land. Abraham Lincoln rejected the Supreme Court’s decision that black people had no rights in the Dred Scott case. Now, today, the progressives, ...

Theocrats and hypocrisy

To the editor: I’m way past having been done with these hypocritical evangelicals and religious nitwits attempting to force their indoctrination onto people of other beliefs and scientific disciplines. They try to claim some sort of moral high ground by invoking their belief structure ...

Democrats say free, free, free

To the editor: President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, challenged us to “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” As I listen to the Democratic candidates for president, all I hear is “Free, free, free.” What are these free giveaways and how will ...
