Letter to The Editor

Writer supports Sorensen on school board

To the Editor:

I reside in Weisenberg Township. I felt compelled to write this letter after reading articles in both the Morning Call and the Northwestern Press (Feb. 28) regarding Leroy Sorensen's decision to remain in his duly elected position.

As I read the articles, what kept popping into my head was a statement Paul Carpenter made in an article written years ago which was, "Something stinks in Weisenberg but it ain't the manure."

In this case, it should read: "Something stinks at the school board meeting and it ain't the manure."

Writer advises standing up to the NRA

To the Editor:

When the attitudes of people change, then there can be real change.

Reflecting on the recent passing of Dr. C. Everett Koop, surgeon general under President Ronald Reagan, I'm reminded of his warnings and his battle with tobacco companies.

He firmly believed in the toxicity and poisonous aspects of cigarette smoking, including the effects of second-hand smoke as a major health issue.

In 1993, The National Smokers Alliance was a group formed to protest U.S. anti-smoking legislation.
