    Eminent domain used as a threat

    I have been told that Williams Co.’s pipeline is good for the community, that it will inject needed jobs and money into our economy. This pipeline is not about the greater good. It is a business to make a profit, no different from building a shopping center. The Williams Co.’s gifts will be short-lived.

    This pipeline carrying a high pressure and explosive mixture will be like burying a dragon that will be with us for generations.

    Obama gang immune to facts

    I finally have come to the realization that no matter what people like me say or print, nothing gets done. I am referring to numerous letters sent to the newspaper presenting the truths about Mr. Obama and his gang of cutthroats. They make the pirates of hundreds of years ago look like angels.

    Welfare system, government broken

    I read the recent letter to the editor regarding welfare. The only thing that I agree with is “waste, fraud and abuse” by the government. In my experience with the welfare system and the government that’s trying to run it, they are both broken. It has to be fixed someday. Not in my lifetime, but someday, somehow.

    Parrett praised for focusing on merit

    State Sen. Dennis Parrett is to be commended for his approach of voting on a bill based on its merits, not party lines. Now if more politicians would do likewise we may see some progress in government.

    About 45 years ago, U.S. Sen. John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky took this approach and set an example which many others followed.

    Important to remember still

    Dec. 7, 1941 — the attack on Pearl Harbor — was a day that has remained in infamy. Very few servicemembers who personally remember that day are still among us. The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national consciousness.

    Shop with a Cop worthy of support

    I would like to share a story about a wonderful program and my little brother.

    It was in the late 1970s and my brother and I were in grade school. He was a couple years behind me. One day, he came home so excited because he was chosen to go on a shopping trip with the school and the coolest part was that it was going to be with a cop.

    I was so excited for him, but to be honest, I also was a little jealous.
