Letters to the Editor - Aug. 20

It’s a privilege to be able to vote for Kump

To the editor:

I am writing in regard to how fortunate the voters of the 59th district in West Virginia are. Voters have the good fortune to be able to re-elect a true champion of independence and conservative ideals to the West Virginia Legislature.

That champion is Del. Larry Kump.

Living in Mineral Wells, W.Va., and not being able to vote for representatives of the 59th, you may ask, why would I care?

I care, because I care about all of West Virginia. I care about all of our representatives being independent and common-sense conservatives. Decisions made by the representative of the 59th can, and do, affect all of West Virginia.

In Del. Kump, you have a legislator who, when faced with a problem, analyzes the problem and explores all solutions, rather than automatically backing the raising of taxes. Raising of taxes is the easy answer. Making change rather than raising taxes takes knowledge, intellect and reasoning. Kump makes himself well aware and well educated on all issues affecting all West Virginia residents.

Larry Kump is a guardian of constitutional rights and liberties. Congratulations, voters of the 59th! You have a great opportunity.

Michael Hall

Search out beauty, not the negative

To the editor:

Oh my. Is your heart aching as you hear about the auto accidents, bus collisions, train wrecks and falling planes? Vicious attacks on good thoughts, good talks, good deeds and good people?

Evil things are being done to bring down love, faith, trust, truth and commitment to our precious savior. He is on top of it all. We can’t give into negative, but must fight it with all our might. 

Beauty still exists. It is all around us. Look up and see the many pictures the sky gives us, as we live through the seasons of hot and cold, rain and snow, beautiful colors of red, orange, yellow, green and brown. 

Nurses and aides are giving medicine, feeding, bathing, saying kind words, comforting the sick. See teachers standing before students passing out knowledge, understanding and care. See men and women young and old leaving their homes to fulfill the duties of their occupation. 

See the homemakers keeping a clean and comfortable place great for the tired. See the young with their many ambitions. Let us try to increase the beauty, not ignoring the negative but working on it until it becomes a thing of beauty.
