    To the Editor:

    My father, Ross Armen-trout, was a soldier in Word War II, and he often told me stories of going to Dachau, the oldest Nazi concentration camp in Germany, after it had been liberated. Maybe growing up hearing stories of Hitler’s destruction makes me so fearful that Hitler’s type of madness could happen again, right here in the United States.

    I write this letter to address concerns and questions regarding the safety improvements to Evergreen Ave. and 200th St. (H-34). This intersection was recognized by the county over eight years ago as a major safety concern, not only to local residents but neighboring counties as well.

    Have you wondered why the new Republican majority is hell-bent on repealing the Affordable Care Act (the ACA), yet don’t have a plan for replacement. It’s not because they are stupid. It is because they, like us citizens, are not being honest about the real issues.  We are unwilling to see (or at least admit) that we Americans expect the best care, on demand, at a reasonable cost, regardless of its actual cost; yet costs have been rising steadily for decades.

    On behalf of the First Baptist Church food pantry, I would like to let everyone know how much we appreciate all the support you have given us. It has enabled us to continue to be there for the people of Montgomery County who need assistance with food, clothing, etc.

    Whether you gave a large donation or a small one, it means so much and goes so far when the community works together to make things happen.

    Your column on on-line marketing was spot on. I prefer to shop in local stores whenever possible. I’ve found that if they don’t have a particular item they can get it in just a few days.

    We often look forward to the beginning of a new year. We celebrate “out with the old and in with the new.” It represents a clean slate – new hopes, big plans, and important commitments, all placed on a brand new calendar.

    Unfortunately, the life of an abused and neglected child does not often change unless the child welfare system steps in and brings the family under the protection of the Juvenile Court.

    The 2016 election delivered a new version of American exceptionality to the USA and around the world. A Republican presidency, a Republican  Senate and House of Representatives, and unusual cabinet appointees have become the current reality show. It  appears nearly half of the country disapproves of President-elect Donald Trump, who is a controversial figure.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., in a 1957 speech entitled “Give Us the Ballot,” spoke of a “dire need for a liberalism which is truly liberal” and warned about a “liberalism which is neither hot nor cold but lukewarm.”

    To the Editor:
    I am troubled that we have a referendum (today, Dec. 6) regarding spending $14,500,000. As I visit about this with my friends and those I know, so few folks are even aware of the referendum, much less some simple financial and emotional issues. In fact, over the last few weeks, no one I talked to was even aware of this vote. Please vote!
    I choose, up front, to say that I have not been able to come to support this referendum.
