Thank you from Pat Krider

To the editor:

On March 30th I had to have emergency surgery. The cancer chemo I have been taking is very strong and perforated my bowl. More complications set in so I spent more time in ICU. Then I was transferred to a regular room at Union Hospital. I am now in a nursing home for rehab to get strength and movement back

I want to thank everyone who has prayed for me and thought of me during this ordeal. I am not sure when I will be back to work and regular activities. Iím taking it one step at a time and am hoping before the end of the school year in May.

Again, I want everyone to know how much my family and I appreciate all of Could you send this out as an editorial. I didnít feel like retyping it. Let me know thanks so much.

Pat Krider


County-passed trash ordinance not being enforced

To the editor:

The Clay County Commissioners passed an Ordinance to keep the county clean on September 5, 2007. As of yet I havenít seen anything being done about this problem in Van Buren Township.

Hunters oppose military guns supported by the National Rifle Association

To the editor:

Stu Moore has been a well-known hunter as well as a very successful businessman in the Center Point area for more than 50 years. Hunting has been one of his favorite past times over the years.

Here he is, pictured with two 10-point bucks taken with old-fashioned guns, mostly lever action and bolt action types made by Winchester, Marlin and Remington. American made.

These guns were very popular from 1850 to 1950.

The NRA found it necessary to promote designs to kill many people quickly.

Not strange what happened next! When those guns were made available to the general public, mass shootings became the rule not the exception.

Stewart ďStuĒ Moore, like me and thousands of other true sportsmen, donít need and are dead set against guns designed for military use. Automatic weapons designed to kill many quickly, not for sportsmen who hunt for sport not for the thrill of the kill.

I am the oldest life member of the NRA in Clay County (1964)!

I was a major contributor of the NRA and a Golden Eagle!

I am now ashamed of the NRA and the management of the NRA!

I am also a life member of Ducks Unlimited.

I am also a member of the Izaak Walton.
