YOUR SIDE: The Readers Take Over

Time to start praying for this election and our country

To the editor:

I think with less than 20 days until the election, it is time to really start praying for this election and for this country.

2nd Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” We need to pray this each day up until the election and even after the election. This country needs to get “one nation under God” back into existence.




Can’t continue to help those not helping themselves

To the editor:

Regarding the letter to the editor on Oct. 13: “Line needs to be drawn regarding helping out drug addicts” by Jamie Benson of Lisbon.

Jamie has presented valid points. It comes across that she knows a lot about this subject. I agree we cannot repeatedly offer these shots to people who will not attempt to help themselves.




Stuttering Foundation offers information

To the editor:

Oct. 22 is International Stuttering Awareness Day. Did you know that 70 million people worldwide stutter — more than the population of France? For nearly 70 years, the Stuttering Foundation has offered free information about stuttering and its treatment. To mark this year’s awareness day, we’ve compiled information for all ages from speech-language pathologists around the world who specialize in the treatment of stuttering. This invaluable information can be found at www.StutteringHelp.org. We hope to reach everyone with accurate and informed information about stuttering.
