A chip off the old block? Time will tell (11/28/10)
There is no guarantee that James David Miller Moon will be a "chip off the old block." But based on what I've been told by family, there's a possibility. And that might not be a good thing. I've been told James David looks a lot like I did when I was born...
Thanks for hitting my car (11/28/10)
To the Editor: I drive a white Neon that was parked on the road across from McDonald's, right by the air pump and the pay phone that is there, by the Kroger gas station. On Nov. 17, 2010, it was hit and the driver just drove off, doing a lot of damage to my car...
Let's see all the streets repaired (11/28/10)
To the Editor: I drove on Pinckley Street just so I could go down a smooth street in Brazil. It seems like when it comes time to elect a new mayor, they all say they are going to fix our streets. Haven't seen it done yet. Our streets, except for Pinckley, are horrible!...

Please be more careful next year (11/28/10)
To the Editor: Once again, the citizens of Brazil put on a great Christmas In The Park parade, but what really disturbs me is the amount of trash that is left on the street the next day. Why can't people just take the time to pick up their mess and throw it away?...
The parade crowd was disappointing (11/28/10)
To the Editor: I just left this year's Christmas parade and I just want to say the viewers were horrible. I went because my grandkids were in it and I wanted to see them. I tried taking some pictures, but really couldn't get good ones because of the people...
As a reader: Let's agree to disagree (11/28/10)
To the Editor: I have read a lot of letters in another newspaper about one thing or another. Two of those letters were published back in October. They were referring to a letter by me, published Sept. 25. The first, by Sharon Ammen, on Oct. 4, called, "Factual letters make most sense." This "Miss or Mrs.," knows it all. Quotes, cost of living adjustments and inflation, to me about why people didn't get a raise in 2010, and why we won't get one in 2011, for Social Security...
