Letter to the Editor: The Moving Wall and Thanks

Dear Editor:

There was a very heartfelt thank you in last week’s paper from Elaine Kettering regarding the Vietnam Moving Wall. Carl and I appreciate our names being mentioned and that we provided some food and drinks, but we were volunteers just like all the rest of the community.

VFW Post 2172 and a core group of volunteers from the community, spearheaded by Post Commander Ray Clevenger, spent more than

Letter to the Editor: Local History and Johnny Ringo

Editor’s note: The following regards an account featured on www.DaviessCountyHistoricalSociety.com, a website provided by Gallatin Publishing Company on behalf of the not-for-profit historical society. It is an example of “outside interests” into local history which periodically occur. This particular inquiry refers to an article written in 1992 and posted online in 2004. This information is on display at the 1889 Squirrel Cage Jail now used as a visitors’ center as

Letter to the Editor: MoSGA Celebrates

Dear Sir,

As the Missouri State Genealogical Association (MoSGA) gets ready to celebrate the 35th anniversary of its creation later this year, we want to take this opportunity to reach out to all the members of Missouri’s genealogical community.

Specifically, we welcome your ideas on how MoSGA can better serve the needs of the genealogical community around the state.

Additionally, we would invite you to visit our website and while

Letter to the Editor: One Pool, A Whole Village

Dear Editor:

The old saying of “it takes a village to raise a child” can definitely be applied to operating a municipal swimming pool. It truly takes help from the entire community to keep our little pool going. And fortunately for us, the Gallatin community has once again answered the call and has stepped in to help protect one of the few recreational options here in Gallatin.

Letter to the Editor: Community Fundraiser

Dear Editor,

I am saddened by the lack of community support that I witnessed first hand at the benefit recently held for Dalton Huston, a local boy with cystic fibrosis. There were some generous businesses that did make donations and we thank you for your kindness. What upsets me most is not many people showed up to support this young man. Cystic fibrosis is a horrible disease, my niece Jennifer

Letter to the Editor: Pool Reopens!

Dear Editor,

Finally, after two long years, Gallatin once again has a place to splash and play. This would not have been possible without a city council that would not give up hope on our little pool. We may not have slides, large water toys, or elite showers, but we do have spirit.

If you have not been by the pool this spring, you need to drive by and see

Letter to the Editor: Small Business Scam?

Dear Editor:

All of us have heard how the credit card industry has been affecting the people who have gone into the small coffee shops and buying small purchases, which then have extra charges at the shop — besides regular high credit percentages.

My use of credit cards to pay huge heat bills has increased significantly since buying my small business in Gallatin. All the utilities have increased over the

Letter to the Editor: Political Wrangling

The following information was circulated in a May 5 memo to members of the Northwest Missouri Area Agency on Aging:

The Governor has requested an additional $1,000,000 for the Home Delivered Meal Program to help regain former funding reductions. The House Appropriations Committee and the House Budget Committee supported the request.

Meanwhile, the Missouri Senate accepted a recommendation from their Appropriations Committee, chaired by Senator Kurt Schaefer, to lower the

Letter to the Editor

Dear Darryl,

I appreciated the article on Jacob Heldenbrand in last weeks paper, however I find great irony in the life of Mr. Heldenbrand. It was his fathers testimony that “something told him things were not right”. It was this very thought of his fathers that saved his life. Without this “thought” he would have gone on with his chores and not returned in great haste to save Jacob. This
