Letters to the Editor - Sept. 4

September 04, 2011

The Herald-Mail should be ashamed of its story on Bushey

To the editor:

I am disappointed, and The Herald-Mail should be ashamed of the story it wrote about Mr. George Bushey.

Past history does not need to be rewritten at the time of a man's death — a man who was a credit to our community, who gave much to all, who was a good father, husband and professional.

For you to reiterate a past mistake is such a poor form of journalism.

It would be best if you would write a letter of apology to Mr. Bushey's family and to your readers.

Please, Republicans, keep Gov. Perry in Texas

To the editor:

It looks as if Rick Perry, governor of Texas, is the best the Republicans can do to produce a candidate for president of the United States.

Good Lord, deliver us from the evil of macho hicks from Texas. They have gotten us into unwinnable wars more than once. They have ruined our economy. Forget the Alamo; remember Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Not only does Gov. Perry have no international experience, his economic and financial gaffes make him a laughing stock on the world stage. His derogatory remarks regarding Ben Bernanke, the able Republican appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, are despicable and dangerous.

Please, Republicans, keep Gov. Perry in Texas. They deserve him. They elected him.

Thanks to all who cared for our beloved dog

To the editor:

A few months ago, I wrote a letter thanking everyone who was caring for our beloved dog, Amber. We finally had to make the decision to put Amber down on Friday, Aug. 12. This is a letter to thank everyone who worked with Amber.

The vets who worked so much with Amber — you all know who you are. They never gave up looking for answers and always went the extra mile for her. A special thank you to the vet who put her to sleep; you were very compassionate and caring, and the tech who helped was a wonderful, sensitive person. Thank you to the women out front who always took my concerns and always called me back, and always had Amber's medicines ready. Thank you all.

Techs in the back were always kind and had patience with Amber and treated her with care and love.  

I know Amber is on rainbow bridge and waiting for me and my brother. She is now able to run, jump and play ball, and she is waiting for me with patience. So thanks to all, and may you all be blessed with riches because of the love you give to all animals.

I miss her and always will, but I will see her someday and we will cross rainbow bridge together.

Patty Barnhart

Congress is denying us economic recovery

To the editor:

Why is it that our Congress can ignore the majority opinion of American citizens and deny us a recovery to our economy?
