Regarding the statue of the soldier in front of the old courthouse, I’ve been told that statue is actually that of a Union soldier. I have no objection to a statue of an unknown Confederate soldier. Most of them didn’t own slaves.

Is there anybody else here who sees that the ultimate disrespect for the American flag is continuing to fly, stand behind and love the stars and bars over reverent respect for Old Glory, who people of all colors, creeds and nationalities have lived, sacrificed, suffered and continue to  die for?

I’m already upset I only get a paper four days per week. Internet reading is not the same.

It is dishonest to continue to ignore the fact that the President conducts himself as a white supremacist. It is one thing to have been dazzled, quite another to have been bamboozled. If you don't know him by now, you will never ever know him at all.

Life is short. Make the best of it by doing what’s right and loving God.
