I think you owe every trucker a public apology. You have implied that all truckers are either using meth o hauling it.

County commissioners

past and present

Dear editor,

I do not know Judge Riley. I sat before him once for a short time and took an oath regarding my wife’s last will and testament.

I have met Jim Webster, but I certainly do not know him. I do feel that I owe him a debt of gratitude, however, since we had all the roads in our subdivision paved well and that was the first time in some 28 years or so. I have spoken with him a couple of times and have found him to be no more reliable than other politicians with whom I have had verbal dealings. They are all quite expert at the art of being vague.

I do know Gary Plugge. He has been a friend for a good number or years. I also voted for him when he was elected and then when he was not. I also know that Gary sincerely thought and felt that what he was doing was the right and correct thing to do.

I do not know Mac Dobbs, but I feel he also sincerely thought and felt that what he was doing was the right and correct thing to do.

Perhaps, before the next commissioners meeting, we should take the precaution of arming all of its members so that they can shoot off something other than their mouths.

R. E. Driscoll Sr.,

Weatherford



Secure the

voting system in Parker County

Dear editor,

Voter fraud should be of great concern to voters.

Consider this: “Voters decide nothing; people who count the votes decide everything.” — Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin

Your Jan. 15 article about Parker County’s new elections boss, Robert Parten, was interesting. Parten’s extensive background and experience could prove beneficial to voters in Parker County.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Concern for your pocketbooks

    Dear Editor: My message today is to Democrats out in Parker County and the middle class and moderate-income Republicans in towns and rural areas.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Now is the time for all good men...

    When man’s greed, desire for riches, power and control of our nation become greater than their love of humanity and our country, by constantly fomenting discord and hate among the citizens, warmongering and constantly talking of wars against other nations - it is putting political ideology before the welfare of citizens and country. It is time for We the People to take a good look at these men involved - no matter their status in our nation, we call the United States of America and decide whether or not they deserve the privilege and sanctuary of our nation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Good company, better service

    We would like to thank Devin’s Handyman Service, Gary Boase, David Schramm and James Reed for the wonderful job they did repainting our front fence, front porch, back porch, patio and deck. Everything looks new and makes such a difference in our home.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Don't judge a book...

    Dear Editor: Thursday night, July 17, I was present for a surprisingly interesting experience when state representative candidate Matthew Britt addressed a small group of supporters, followed by a question and answer session.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Response to 'Blame game'

    Dear Editor: It’s not drug cartels telling Central Americans their children won’t be turned away at the border, it is the actions of this administration with its refusal to secure the border and its unilateral rewriting of immigration law. As has been shown, this president and his administration have for some time lied about the security of the border and immigration enforcement.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sick and tired

    Do you remember hearing Hillary Clinton screaming, “I am sick and tired of people who say if you debate or disagree with this administration somehow you are not patriotic. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to disagree with any administration.” Nancy Pelosi said that the swamp needed to be drained and I agree, but I see she and Senator Reid are still splashing around in the slime.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Our officials care

    I take serious exception to Mr. Jay Cloward’s letter, “Big city, no care” (7/8/14) in which he states that it almost looks like the city wants to become a for-profit company and Weatherford has “become a city too big to care.”

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: What’s so good about President Obama?

    I’m proud to live in an America where our great president has passed a health care bill, after five presidents (Republican and Democratic) over the last 50 years tried and failed. I want my America to be a place where not only the rich can receive affordable health care by all citizens alike. Here’s to you, President Obama. It saddens me to hear disrespectful and pernicious comments about the man who holds the highest office of our great country. I hope that good people all across Parker County will join me in prayer for our elected leadership.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Big city, no care

    The City of Weatherford officials have deemed it necessary to increase costs of utilities and taxes so more pet projects can be paid for. This comes from a city that collects money each month for storm runoff during an extended drought.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Hobby Lobby ruling

    “It’s a free country!” How many times have you heard that statement?
