  • LETTER: SAFE, not a one-issue organization

    Have you ever stood beside the casket of a friend who was killed as a result of an alcohol related accident?     I have.

    Have you ever had someone share with you that they were an alcoholic and all the struggles and temptations that they faced on a daily basis, especially when people chose to drink around them? I have.

    Have you ever sat down with a young wife and mother as she poured out her heart that her husband’s drinking was destroying their marriage and harming their children?    I have.

  • LETTER: Our community must be progressive

    Over the years, one of the worst things I’ve had to do was to lay off an employee. I have had to do that four different times and I very well know what a low and devastating feeling it is as an employee and as an employer.

    As an employer, it was my responsibility to find and provide the work and I was not able to do that. I let a lot of people down, including myself.

    I believe that every willing and able person in this country has the right and the responsibility and should have an opportunity to have work or a job.

  • LETTER:Spare families from the heartbreak of alcohol

    I am a mother with a broken heart. My only child (a son), whom I adored, became a victim of alcohol abuse at the age of 36 when he took his own life.

    Bryan was a bright, intelligent boy, was a talented artist, his heart was filled with love and compassion and he had a wonderful sense of humor. Bryan was raised in church, he made a profession of faith at the age of seven and he attended the church’s Awana club where he achieved earning a Timothy trophy. What a bright, wonderful future this miracle from God had before him.
