Letters To The Editor
Church rolls destroyed:
Due to a fire at the home of Frank and Peggy Feathers on August 13 all church records for Holly Hills Baptist Church were lost.
Any member wishing to have their name on the church roll, please send a written statement to Holly Hills Baptist Church, P.O. Box 163, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Please pray for them; they lost everything.
Thanks for cold water:
I would like to personally thank the following churches for their generous donations of bottled water for our students at Galena School during the extreme heat: Mt. Sinai, Chulahoma MB, Union Valley MB Church, Mt. Comfort CME, Mt. Peel MB Church, New Hope MB Church, Hernando Road Church of Christ and Yarbrough Chapel CME.
I would also like to thank our Galena PTA, parents, community members and teachers who also helped with this effort.
During such an extreme situation, it was exciting to see so many individuals and churches “step up” to help our children. You made the bus rides home in the extreme heat bearable.
I know that many of our students do not have the means to personally thank each one of you for your generosity, so, and on their behalf, I thank you.
Jerry O. Moore
Response to letter:
After reading Connie Lewis’ letter to the editor concerning “Travis Childers’ Slick Pamphlet” in the July 22 South Reporter I felt compelled to respond, to make sure that Ms. Lewis and others have their facts straight.
For those who didn’t get the chance to read it, Lewis chose to point the finger at Congressman Travis Childers for much of our economic struggles.
In particular, most of Lewis’ criticism of Congressman Childers is over his support of the health care reform bill and the Wall Street bailout.
Unfortunately, I don’t think Lewis did all of her homework before writing that letter, because Childers voted against the health care bill because it was too expensive and against the Wall Street bailout (TARP) twice because it put money in the hands of big Wall Street banks instead of hard working North Mississippians!
And in addition to not supporting the excessive spending in these bills, Childers stopped Congressional pay raises and even pushed to cut Congressional pay, limit discretionary spending and lower the national deficit.
In fact, it was Childers’ opponent (who I suppose Lewis would rather vote for), Alan Nunnelee’s party who recommended the privatization of Social Security and the raising of the retirement age - two actions that would only punish the hard working people in this district.
Say what you want about how we got into this economic mess (and there are plenty of places where we can point the finger), but as far as I’m concerned, Congressman Childers has been one of the few politicians who has been sincerely standing up for all what’s right during his time in Congress. In fact, it looks like he’s done such a good job that some people have had to resort to nothing more than lies and deceit to try to criticize him.
You can look at his voting record (unlike Lewis), and see for yourself. I’m not saying that everyone needs to go out and support Congressman Childers, but at least get your facts straight.
