Letters To Editor – July 2, 2009

Is Family History Next?

Letter to Editor:

  Thanks for printing Mr. Allen’s letter last week and thanks Mr. Allen for writing. A friend of mine was reading it and she thought I had written it. There is no reason to give your birthday to write a check. First they want to know when your drivers license expires—what does that have to do with writing a check. The first time at Dollar General they asked for my birthday, I was real rude to the clerk. I then told him I was sorry, but that had nothing to do with writing a check. Next they will want to know our family history.

Thanks To Tree Cutters

Dear Editor:

  Special thanks to those who cut trees that were blocking the road behind Palestine Church after the storm a few weeks ago. A young boy, who has hemophilia lives in a  mobile home on this road. He has to go back and forth to LeBonheur Hospital in Memphis periodically and a trip to the hospital can become necessary at any time. This road is the only way out from his home. Special thanks to Billy Stark and Harry Womble, who were very much involved with this tree removal.

  Thanks again,
  LeAnn Christian, Cody,
  Savannah, Kathleen and
  Henry Fly, and others
  Bro. and Mrs. Donald Miller

Leash Law Not Needed, Owners Responsible For Conduct Of Dogs

Dear Editor:

  Recently in Letters to Editor a gentleman complained because the sheriff’s department could not protect he and his family (my conclusion). No, the county doesn’t have a leash law and certainly doesn’t need one. Can you imagine how many birds a hunter would kill running with a leash on his dog?

  The man had a legitimate complaint, however, he directed it in the wrong direction and to the wrong people. In most areas the owner of the dog(s) are responsible for the conduct of the dog(s). The first step is to establish the owner of the dog, if the dog has no owner it may be destroyed. Number two, speak with the owner, if you are not satisfied with the results of the meeting, the third step would be to consult your attorney.

  Important! For best results, never approach the owner in a hostile manner and keep calm through the entire meeting.
