I for one would like to express my disapproval for the insensitivity of our commissioners. This excludes all of us as pastors and many of our teachers in our churches. I have had families in my church tell me that their children would rather be in our Wednesday night service, but their children would not be able to participate in the various ball leagues if they didn't show up at the game on Wednesday night. As far as I am concerned, it just shows how interested some of these leaders are in the efforts of the churches of our community to bring spiritual instruction to the family.
What I can't understand is why more parents are not objecting to the lack of concern on the part of the leaders of our community to the spiritual needs that our churches bring to the family. It is high time someone spoke out for the church.
Come on, pastors and teachers of the churches of our community...don't let them take our family night of the week. Between Sundays it's all we have for instructing our adults and children in the ways of God.

Children's Village worth every cent
To the editor:
I'm writing as a member of the board of directors of Children's Village of Washington County, Inc. The operation of the Children's Village is providing a unique and valuable service to citizens of our county - touching just about every single household in Washington County.
Each year, over 2,000 second grade county students are taught life safety skills needed to survive possible injuries and disasters in our modern society.
I strongly urge the commissioners to continue their $15,000 per year contribution to help sustain the operation of this facility.

To the editor:
I would like to thank Sen. Donald F. Munson and his associate Jean Talley for their exceptional efforts in resolving a medical bill I had with Hershey Medical Center.
I am sure they spent many hours attempting to resolve this dispute and succeeding over the past year.
Incidentally, I am not in Senator Munson's congressional district.
