Letter to the Editor

I’ve been out of town for several days, and could not join in the apparent general uprising of political angst.  (Lest Trump-like accusations and other common misrepresentations undermine our civil discussion, we should agree to avoid using pejoratives such as “deplorables” and “communism,” since...
I just read our newspaper. (Re: “County minutes queried,” NLJ, March 28, 2019, page one). The commissioners telling the county clerk, that they don’t want the discussions printd in the paper, only the motions and votes.  What are they hiding?  I want the discussions printed in the paper. It seems...
Dear Editor,  Thank you Alexis Barker for writing such an informative article about our “Toomey Mill Sifter,” and Bob Bonnar for printing it. (Re: “New home sought for artifiacts,” NLJ, February 21, 2019, page one.) It is a great start to a very much needed and important step to memorialize the “...
My heart is full of joy, yet saddened to leave all my dear friends in Newcastle.  I want to say thank you for all the things my friends have helped me with and done for me all these years. Thank you for the wonderful memories. You will always have a special place in my heart!  We are so blessed to...
Dear Editor, Jerry Baird wants the rich to pay taxes like the low income people do. (Re: “It is time to come up with a new ‘ism,’” NLJ, March 14, 2019, page 3) How is it that when 10 percent of the people pay 90 percent of the taxes and the bottom 50 percent pay less than 10 percent of the taxes...
Dear Editor, Eventually we will either run out of coal and petroleum or customers for those raw materials. In either case it would be prudent to make a plan to replace that source of income.   Failing that, it would be prudent to make a plan to prepare the citizens to begin paying substantially...
Dear Editor, Another American tradition bites the dust. The city and county fathers have eliminated prayer at their meetings.  Prayer at civic meetings in this country began on the Mayflower before they even set foot on land and it has been a tradition to invoke the blessings of God at civic...
Dear Editor, Let’s get one thing straight before the beginning of any “discussion.” (Re: Socialism failed in all forms decades ago, March 7, 2019, page three.) If the billionaires and their lackey politicians would just pay their taxes at exactly the same rate as the working man or woman with no...
Dear Editor, In last week’s edition of the NLJ, Professor emeritus Baird provided us with an interesting lesson in how Socialists plan to convince the American people that Socialism is the way of the future. (“The right is easily misled by billionaires,” February 28, 2019, page three.) Basically,...
Dear Editor, By and large the Founding Fathers were “landed gentry” interested in organizing themselves into an independent republic free from subjugation by King George or any group — including other refugees from Europe or elsewhere.   On June 15, 1804 the Congress ratified the Twelfth Amendment...
