Letter to the Editor: Life is Short

Dear Editor:

I know that most people knew that October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There was not a radio or TV ad, that I didn’t wonder what I could have done; should have done; or wish I had done.

Donna passed away six months ago and we knew nothing about breast cancer until 30 days before. She was being treated for pneumonia before that.

A few weeks ago I

Letter to the Editor: Proud of Our Community

Dear Editor:

A couple of weeks ago, on a Monday while I was volunteering at the Gallatin Senior Center it came to my mind how much I enjoyed serving there and really getting to know and care for so many people who came through the door to serve, to eat or just visit. My husband Art and I had volunteered there together for about eight years when he passed away

Letter to the Editor: Thanks to Ray and Vets

“Thank You” to Ray Clevenger, VFW Post #2172, and to all volunteers we met recently.

As volunteers at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall, we sometimes forget to thank the sponsoring organization. So, at this time our “Job Well Done, Mission Completed” is issued.

Take the rest of the day off.

VFW Post #2172 Commander Ray Clevenger, along with his squadron of volunteers, accomplished an amazing mission. To host TVVMMW

Letter to the Editor: Amendment 3

Dear Editor:

In reference to last week’s article in this newspaper, submitted by State Senator Brad Lager, in regard to the voting initiative on Missouri Constitution Amendment 6: In the article, Mr. Lager seems to endorse the measure but then offers a subtle disclaimer by encouraging voters to become educated on this important issue. I’ll shout a big “Amen” to that advice. Has anyone looked closely at the language of

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.

Dear Sir,

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.

The problems with

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
