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

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Your “Editor’s note” at the end of Jimmy’s letter stated “Since this is the last print edition before Tuesday’s election….” You offered the city the opportunity to respond. That’s fair. However, you failed to extend the same courtesy to Jimmy for rebuttal in the ‘last edition.’

That’s not fair.

You then wrote a scurrilous editorial of character assassination, impugning my statements and facts as not trustworthy, even though

Letter to the Editor: Tough Times

Dear Editor:

Times are tough! They are tough for all of us. It doesn’t take very long watching or listening to the news to figure out times are tough everywhere. It makes everyone nervous, grouchy, irritable, and not being able to see that glass half full, only half empty.

For those who have jobs, whether you’re happy with it or not, you really are one of the lucky ones. Jobs,

Letter to the Editor: More on City Utilities, Finances

Dear Editor:

An editorial in last week’s paper titled “A Positive Sales Tax Meeting” read in part:

“It takes money to make money. Do you believe this adage? On Tuesday, April 8, Gallatin voters will decide whether to actually put money to that truth. The vote will be on a half-cent sales tax. If it passes, a list of much needed improvements can be attempted, each of which promises to

Letter to the Editor: Still Caring About Gallatin

Dear Editor:

I just finished reading last week’s paper which came a little before noon. I read your column and also the mayor’s letter and about the small crowd who attended the meeting about the half cent sales tax. Gallatin is still our hometown and Joe and I plan to be buried in Brown cemetery before too long and hope there will be someone there to greet us. We personally

Letter to the Editor: The Mayor Speaks

Dear Editor:

I’m not blind, nor am I deaf. I can hear all the rumors and contention going around our community regarding the utility costs and the petition to have the City of Gallatin audited. Both of these things are serious.

Your council and city employees take these issues very seriously. Right now, and for the past several years, you have voted in a council that has taken daily city
