Opinion Letters

I currently own three homes in Macon County all occupied by family members. I am becoming increasingly disillusioned with our federal government and local government procrastinating and not making decisions. Postponing everything for the next electorate or your children is not the way to run a government, day-to-day decisions should be made by the local government.

In my 79 years on this earth I have watched creeping socialism and is now our Army. Roadblocks to see your papers without probable cause.

I would like to thank Mr. Ron Haven for sitting through the last commissioners meeting and not making rude comments, yawning, whispering to the commissioner next to him, or scribbling notes on a piece of paper and passing them to Chester.

The public looks to these people to listen to their opinion and take it into account before making a decision, is this not why they hold public meetings?

Thank you to all whom came out and gave blood at Otto Community on February 11, 2012. Without your help we would not have been a success. We were able to get 25 usuable units, 27 people presented to donate.

Look for the next drive.

I am responding to a letter that appeared in the January 19, 2012 issue of the Macon County News. The letter was written by Dr. Ed Morris, wherein he unveiled a startling set of facts that should have been published in our local newspapers before the last election.

In my opinion, newspapers are the most essential form of raising public awareness. Ink on paper lasts for ages. A radio news report is dissipated in the wind. TV news is not much more than a flicker of light.
