Letters to the Editor


I do applaud the City Council members for going ahead and voting to give New Directions their additional funding request!

In the lengthy times that I have been observing these meetings and observing the presentations given by the NFP’s in their requests. I don’t believe that anyone has given the detailed accounting of their organization and where these funds are being utilized for the betterment of our community as a whole as has Diane Moore of New Directions. This can be observed in the video and other videos of her presentations at the City Council meetings. She is to be applauded for her passion and detail in helping those in need in our community.

I also would be remiss in not giving kudo’s to our Police Chief Stacy Chasteen for citing the invaluable help that New Directions has been to our police department in dealing with domestic abuse by writing her letter to the editor in support of New Directions that was in the Oct. 8 edition of the Daily News.

Since our City of Greenburg Public meetings no longer allow for public comment or questions on their agenda, I wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge and to compliment a decision they made to address a “need” in our community during these very tough economic times where fiscal responsibility IS of the greatest importance. I also would like to encourage them in the future to consider prioritizing these NFP requests according to our community “need.”

Just a dog-gone heart warming story

Dear Editor:

It was Thursday in September, and two friends had stopped by for a brief visit.

I walked out on the front porch as they were leaving, and we all spotted this tiny dog walking right down the middle of Montgomery Road. Just as we saw the little thing, a large truck was coming toward Lincoln, put on his brakes, and then about four cars came up behind him. He missed hitting the critter. A car then was driving from Lincoln. I immediately ran out into the road, grabbed the little dog, which was shaking by then. The traffic went on, and my friends left. I held the little one and talked to it. It was very scared. I then called the radio station and they said they would put it on air.
