Dear Editor, Life begins at the point of conception. No one can deny that after a human being is conceived it will develop into the very same being as thosedebating this issue. What astounds me is that those who favor abortion went through an identical development stage as the being they are condemning to death. Would these very same people agree that a similar choice should have been made about their own existence? How many human lives have been lost that could have added to our society in so many ways?Abortion today is used primarily as a birth control of convenience because people are too self-centered to take precautions.
EditorRemembering the Past; lost in the Present, and hoping for a positive future.I lost a Marine this week. I don’t remember how we became acquainted, likely it was at a watering hole like our tavern on K Street, Vinton.

It's the most wonderful time of the year they say. Most of the time I agree. The other day as I drove around looking at the Christmas lights, I wished that the Christmas season lasted way beyond December. It's the one time of the year that we all agree that peace on earth is a good thing. It's when nostalgia kicks in reminding us of times around grandma's table or when the kids were small and the best thing under the tree to them, was the empty boxes and wrapping paper.

Dear Editor,The reason why I will not drop the conversation about the Covid "vaccines", is because the elites in this world and our federal government are trying to control the American people.

I would like to make as many people aware of this that I possibly can in hopes that we will all come together and fight for our lives, our loved ones, our freedoms and the future of our community.

That’s how long I had been waiting to open the new microwave, It's always fun to have a new gadget, so I plugged it in and used it for a while. Then it died. The microwave I had bought on a clearance rack for $10, was worth that $10.
