Upset with some items sold in Rogers
To the editor:
On the 22nd of May, I went to the Rogers outdoor mall for some local flavor and fun on a budget. There is nowhere else around that has such good produce at such reasonable prices, truly a hidden gem. Plus the sheer magnitude of vendors and the variety of junk to paw through was a welcome delight. Of the many amusing and sometimes hilarious things I saw, some things were down right disturbing. I saw a man selling a 30"x30" swastika flag, complete with authentication papers. Are you kidding me? I was at a loss as to why someone would want this. There was also no price being offered, so now I am unsure whether he was selling this flag, or announcing something. Yikes, scary!
Next, what is with all the firearms? Hand guns, rifles and automatic weapons were all for sale. I understand the hunters need something to shoot with, but, is it really a good idea to sell lethal weapons to anyone with the cash? And finally, shame on you the person selling the baby wild animals! Did those baby grey foxes just find you magically? What about the terrified baby red foxes or the distressed baby raccoons? Is it even legal to sell wild animals?
The Rogers mall is a fun place to find treasures of the past as well as delicious produce, but the down-turn in the economic climate has begun to bring out the vultures.
Mother would appreciate kindness
To the editor:
Were you, or someone you know, in the Dover, Ohio, Children's Home from June 1926, to May 1937? My, Mom, Eleanore Ross, and her sister Anne, were there at that time. Mom speaks fondly of the kids there, and the home's caregivers, Mom and Daddy Kelly.
Mom's 93rd birthday will be soon, and I know a card or note from those that lived there with her, would be greatly appreciated and treasured by her.
Please send them to me at: 6544 Akron Ave., N.W., Canal Fulton, Ohio 44614, and I'll forward them. Thank you.
