A formal plea

Dear Editors,

The Moon brothers are coming up for parole review again, and my office has filed formal protests against their release with the Office of Pardons and Parole. I know that the victim and her family  would appreciate your help in spreading the news and requesting that all concerned Limestone County citizens either write or email a letter to the board of pardons and parole and protest the release of these two violent felons. I will have a protest petition in my office that concerned citizens may stop by to sign, which will be mailed to the Board of Pardons and Parole.  The victim’s family has told me they also intend to circulate petitions at various locations in the community.

Do you really want change?

Dear Editor,

You all probably talk to someone everyday that willingly share different areas in which change is need. But when you think about the ones in charge of: hiring and firing, raising your taxes, raising your water bill, owning the only business of it’s type in town, controlling the paper ballot so the same people can keep anyone else from getting in on all the legal ways to steal and be safe from all the laws.

Do you really want change? This brings three questions to consider:

1. What do we all need to do to help change be good?

2. Do you want better than good for all the people?

3. Do you feel that the same families/friends should be able to fraudulently deceive/steal or continue to fix voting with paper ballots, and hiring practices in all areas of counties and cities/towns in these United States?

Do you really want change?

They got it wrong, again

Dear Editor,

On June 27,, 2016, the US Supreme Court ruled against a Texas law that required abortion clinics to have certain resources in place to protect the life of the mother in case of medical complications.  The court got it wrong again!   Just as in the 1973 Texas case, Roe v. Wade, the court blamed their bad decisions on the US Constitution.  In 1973, they ruled that the Texas regulations violated the 14th amendment regarding due process.  The more recent ruling declares the law to be a “substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions” and place an “’undue burden’ on their constitutional right to do so.”  Constitutional right?  Really?

“From These Roots...” success

Dear Editor,

The SCCA Annual Heritage Program held at Union Memorial United Methodist Church in the Sandy Community on Aug. 14 was a great success.  

This year’s theme was “From These Roots ... Came These Dreams.” When the community was settled by ex-slaves between 1870-1875, the founders were very ambitious in their dreams to educate the children through 4th and 5th grades. Descendants have gone on to pursue a plethora of professional careers. This year’s program spotlighted four Sandy descendants with careers in the following fields: Founder of Dance Theatre; Orthopedic Surgeon; Southwest Airlines Stewardess and twin Attorneys.

Sandy descendants continue to return from Waco, Dallas, Houston and other cities and join the residents of the community to honor our Sandy ancestors.

To deny the truth is to deny God

Dear Editor,

More and more of us see those in Washington in a lust for power and a worship of images, having this uncontrollable craving for control, but unaware of where or when they lost their reasoning, then their judgment. For they are incapable of recognizing any of it. It is like an old saying, “They must be out of their minds.”

That is so true. It is comparable to narcotics. First, you flirt with truth, and then you deny it. Then you court a lie and groom it, cultivate it and protect it. Congratulations! You’ve got your political graduation, but lost your judgment.

So you see, my fellow Americans, there are more and more of these kind of people each and every day. These people are not going to do the right thing because they are good people. You have to make them do the right thing.

Rail opponent says thanks

Thank You! Our fellow citizens whose land is under threat of confiscation by the proposed High Speed Rail would like to thank all those who have come together to oppose this unnecessary and ill-conceived project.
Thanks to the many (100) Freestone and Limestone county business owners who allowed the use of their countertops to make the petition against the rail available to the public.
Thanks also to the many (3,422) patriotic citizens who realized the unfairness of the proposed scheme and signed the petition. As Americans have done in the past, citizens have come together to defend our rights; in this case, the legal ownership of property.
Copies of this citizens petition (292 pages) were sent to 27 entities which include, but are not limited to, applicable county, state and federal elected officials as well as the state and federal Departments of Transportation.

Clinic teaches life skills

(Editor’s note: Here is a nice letter from a Trout Clinic supporter, reprinted with permission.)
To: Mexia Bass Club
Attn: Ron Talbot
Ron:
Congratulations on your successful trout clinic this year. Two hundred seventy-four children attending is a great accomplishment. Some of those were some of my employees’ children and I heard from them what a great time they had.
The Mexia Bass Club is to be commended for their community work. Teaching children to fish is also one of my interests. I have many to my lake each year, who have been previously to your clinics.
I think when Jesus chose fishermen as his disciples, he chose wisely. I know the saying, that if you teach a child to fish, you will feed him for the rest of his life. You feed his spirit also that we need so much of in today's turbulent times.
I know that the 5,800 children who have attended your clinics have all left with much more than the free Zebco rod and reel.

Photo a ‘delight’

What a delight to see the picture of football players kneeling on the front page of The Mexia News! The stories of the official receiving help from so many, and then the two football teams praying together at the Wortham-Dallas Gateway game was just so wonderful to see. The ending to the story was great, too. So glad the official has lived to thank those that helped him.
As far as I'm concerned, the Wortham Bulldogs have already won the game. These young men and their coaches already know how to be victorious, and it has nothing to do with the score.
Thanks for sharing such a great story.

Thanks for everything!

The Kosse First United Methodist Church’s 35th annual Fall Bazaar was blessed with beautiful weather, fellowship and friends and a very successful day. Thanks to all of you who attended the Bazaar and to all the businesses and friends who made it possible with donations to the auctions, raffle, country store, kitchen, white elephant and craft tables and the bakers, canners, cooks, workers and the businesses that displayed our signs and to the newspaper for telling our story.
We would also like to thank auctioneer John McCarver for entertaining us as he promoted each item. The bazaar wouldn’t be possible without all of you. There are no adequate words to express our thanks and gratitude for your amazing generosity.
