Letter to the Editor: DDRJ

Dear Editor:

I just wanted to comment on the recent activity by the Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail Administration’s proposal for extending the current sales tax, indefinitely, and possibly adding two new counties to our current (DeKalb, Daviess) jail program. This all sounds confusing but I think we should keep in mind some basic principles that once government institutes a tax it never leaves us and stays forever.

When this sales

Letter to the Editor: Daviess County Clerk

Citizens of Daviess County:

The position of County Clerk of Daviess County became open when Linda Steward resigned from the position after 34 years of service, effective June 30, 2013.

I resigned my position as Deputy County Clerk and accepted the appointment as the Interim County Clerk by the Daviess County Commission and was sworn into office on June 28, 2013. I also submitted my application for the position to

Letter to the Editor: Utility Rates

Dear Editor:

The August 28 newspaper said that the city council had decided to raise the utility rates again at the August 26 meeting. They have been talking about a possible raise since the wholesale rate adjustment in August. That is two raises in three months on already high utility bills.

But are the utility rates really going up? I heard a radio interview done with Zac Johnson last Thursday.

Letter to the Editor: ‘Post Scripts’ Era Retires

Dear Editor:

Many of us picked up the Gallatin North Missourian weekly newspaper and looked immediately at the Post Scripts written by Joe Snyder for as long as I can remember. At age 95 he has now retired from that spot we all enjoyed for so many years.

Kathy, his wife these past years, has guided him, typing the columns, and making sure they would be sent to Gallatin on

Letter to the Editor: USDA Immigration

Dear Editor:

Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate passed a commonsense immigration reform measure in a strongly bipartisan fashion. This was an important step in the right direction – especially for producers, farm workers and rural communities.

The historic legislation passed by the Senate provides a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million people who are in our country today without authorization. They will have to go to the

Letter to the Editor: Governor’s Veto

Dear Editor,

The Governor’s veto claims that the Second Amendment Protection Act nullifies federal firearm restrictions. That is not what the bill says. At Section 1.320.3 the bill says that any federal restrictions which infringe on the Second Amendment are invalid. Under the US Supreme Court’s rulings in the Heller and McDonald decisions such restrictions are already invalid. The bill endorses this view and may be years late but does

Letter to the Editor: Nullification

Dear Editor,

The age-old doctrine of state nullification is in the air across the United States, and of all the demographic groups, newspaper reporters and editors should be cheering the most – and not simply because it makes for interesting copy.

A few years ago not many would have guessed that this 215 year old doctrine would regain standing as an accepted political tool, but according to a May 6,

Letter to the Editor: The Government

Dear Editor,

Move along folks, nothing to see here. Trust me. I’m from the government and I’m here to help. And why shouldn’t Missouri share your information about concealed carry permits? The federal government would never target one group over another in their taxing agency. And of course you know we’d NEVER ask your phone company to access everyone’s phone calls. Don’t you know there are laws to protect you

Letter to the Editor: In Reply to Another Letter

Dear Editor,

I feel it necessary to write in response to a letter in last week’s paper that stated “God (Allah) is the supreme being and he, and only he, is worshiped. It’s the same god the Baptists worship.” I would like to point out that just because Islam and Israel both worship one god it does not mean they are the same god.

Let’s look at the information from
