    Found ring

    To the gentleman who found my husband’s wedding ring in Wendy’s across the road on the Southwest 200 Corridor on July 17, I can’t thank you enough. It’s hard to believe there are people like you who are honest. God bless you and yours.

    Drain on Medicare

    Medicare does not make any rules. Congress makes the rules.

    Congress decides how much money Medicare is given to operate.

  • This day sets us apart

    As I sit here in anticipation of Independence Day, I realize that this is the day that sets the United States apart from the rest of the world, this is the day that makes us so unique.


  • We are broke 07-08-2011

    America is broke, folks. Broke, broke.

    Embed that fact onto your brain.

    You can yell and scream all you want about whether something is an entitlement, or, an investment. There is no money for either. You cannot get blood from a turnip, nor, money from an empty fund.

  • Knowing our history 07-01-2011

           One thing we get from reading editorials and columns in this and other newspapers is that some writers think they know all the answers to whatever is being discussed.  Wanting our country to return to the Christian principles on which it was founded is NOT an attack on our country by the religious right, rather the desire to keep God in his rightful place.

  • Keep them untouched and whole 07-01-2011

    Didn’t wage-earning, Americans pay into the Social Security and Medicare trust funds through payroll deductions?  Aren’t our children and grandchildren doing the same?  Wasn’t the intent of these funds to supplement pensions and medical costs when a person reaches age 65?  Now, Congress is talking about making unwanted and unnecessary changes to these programs … programs we and our children sacrificed so much to obtain.

  • Who is carrying whom? 07-01-2011


    Verrrry interesting,  {a la Sgt. Schultz}.

    Who is carrying whom? Let us give this a little more thought and research.

    How many people are paying NO taxes? The figure most commonly cited is 43 percent.  This includes those at the top lolling around in their loop-hole heaven, and those at the bottom lolling around in their hand-out heaven. Who is left to pay taxes? Voila:  You guessed it, the middle class.

  • Facts not cleared up 07-01-2011

    When reading the Citizen on the 17th of his month I was appalled to read the letter written by a local woman. It sounded like a one-sided missionary tall tale. I'm sure she wasn't around when the Constriction was signed anymore than I was. It sounded like a Pentecostal ranting to the nth degree. Doesn't she know we are all God’s children and as such, we are all sinners and that's why Jesus died on the cross for us. Man listen to me. I've never written a lerter about religion in my life even though my college major was Church Music Voice.

  • Dream Act is a nightmare

    The last time that a poll was taken concerning the Dream Act, a full 60 percent of Americans were against legalizing 15 million workers who came into this country illegally. These illegal immigrants not only came into this country illegally they are taking work away from Americans who are trying to support their families with any kind of work they can get.
