Can we really love again?

Can we reallylove again?

Dear Editor:

This is something I have been thinking about a lot lately. Whether it’s right or wrong, I can’t get it out of my head. Could I fall in love again?

My wife will always be my one true love, but this time it would be different. It would not be as all-consuming as ours was; it would be more sedate. It would be a more thought about relationship, companionship – good friends doing things we both like to do, enjoying our lives without the stress.

There would be a lot of issues to settle before this happened. At my age, if I got sick or down, would I want to put this burden on her. If I passed away in a short time, would it be fair to her?

I don’t know if this will happen, but a lot of people I know have been through this. Is it right for me or the lady I would choose? I should tell myself, “Get out of your head, you creepy old nut.” Life when you are young is full of problems and when you get older, they are still there, but they just change.

It may happen with me. I hope I can do it right.

Ralph Ziegler


Kids should be kids, not criminals

Dear Editor:

The weather was lovely this weekend and our neighbors were all out to play. Well, except for some people from or outside of our neighborhood that broke in and vandalized several cars during the night.

They stole change, pocket knives, rummaged through glove compartments and tried to take out a DVD player. They found a gas can by a garage and poured it out in the grass.

What will happen when school is out and kids have more opportunity to hang out? Will they hone their criminal skills and next time successfully remove a DVD player? Will they next time light gas on fire? Will they decide to start breaking in garages or homes?
