Letters to the Editor

Dear Voter, I will vote for Biden and I hope you will too. I watched the whole debate on Tuesday night. You will have to agree that Joe Biden did better. He argued for the super wealthy paying their fair share of taxes. That will work. He argued for health care for everybody. That will work. He...
Dear Editor, I have to respond to Bonnie Coffman’s letter to the editor regarding masks in the last edition; I agree with everything she said. I have been a registered nurse for 44 years, 40 of that in ICU and ER. I was a nurse at the first of the AIDES epidemic when we didn’t routinely use gloves...
Fellow Americans, The Wuhan virus (Covid-19 from China) and derogatory stories about President Trump continue to dominate the news.  With information at our fingertips 24/7, one would think that nothing noteworthy would escape our attention.  That’s not necessarily true, thanks to extreme media...
Dear Editor, My name is Mary JoAnn Williams. I am the mayor of Cowgill, elected by the people in June 2020. As of today, I have not been sworn in as the mayor. At the June meeting, I was accused of giving a threat to a citizen. This incident did involve my grandkids. I was not there. I was asked to...
Dear Editor, I know we all hate to wear masks. It’s a pain in the neck and we live in rural Missouri, love the outdoors, and hate government officials telling us what to do. This COVID-19 thing has kept us trapped in our house for 4 months, and it doesn’t look like it will get better any time soon...
Dear Editor:      This is a notice to Businesses and Jurisdictions.  Whereas, 1) it is medically proven that “masks” do not prevent the spread of a virus;  2) Doctors are now diagnosing infections caused by wearing “masks”;  3) quarantine of the sick is the proper method of preventing disease;  and...
Letter to the Editor Thank you for printing Mr. Dan Landi’s letter on April 5.  I always find his writing provocative and interesting.  I agree with him that economics is important, and too often neglected when making public policy.  I appreciate that he’s interested in government and politics.  I...
I feel the need to address some of the fallacies put forth by Mr. Landi in the April 7th edition.  Concerning the current outbreak, he insists we call it a virus, not a plague.  I don’t know that many people are calling it a plague, but the first definition of that word is, “a disastrous evil or...
Dear Editor:      The issues affecting us were on my mind as I woke this morning.  Many decisions have been made in a very short period of time, and will affect us for years to come.  Most of them are being made by a hand-full of people.  Some of the issues are world-wide in scope; while others...
What if we put as much effort into getting along as we do in trying to get our own way? What if nations put as much effort into “Waging Peace” as the do in “waging war”? For example. Two or three people (nations) have a very different idea about what needs to be done to solve Climate change?...
