LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: JP4 candidates Johnson, Suchocki backed

Re-elect Judge Johnson

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my support for re-election of Judge Lynn Marie Johnson as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.

I have known Judge Johnson for many years. In addition to her accomplishments while in office, she has served our community well and is very active in it. I have had the pleasure of serving on the Aledo Children’s AdvoCats board for more than eight years and the Project Celebration 2012 board for four years with Judge Johnson.

She is fair, honest, patient and has great integrity. She is able to manage boards and handle conflicts that arise in a diplomatic fashion. I have enjoyed serving with her and have learned from her leadership. She is a true asset to our community.

Please join me in supporting  Judge Johnson and vote for her as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.

Thanks,

Rhonda Evers, Aledo

Suchocki supporters

Dear Editor,

My husband, Case, and I and, for that matter, our entire family have know the Suchocki family for many years. We know Bernard to be a dedicated husband, dad and granddad. His integrity and work ethic is beyond reproach.

We have voted for Bernard Suchocki for Justice of the Peace, Pct. 4, and we urge everyone to do so.

They will not be displeased.

Case and Angie Hudson, Aledo

Writer backs Johnson for JP4

Dear Editor,

In the last several years, Judge Lynn Johnson has graciously opened her courtroom doors to Parker County’s Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace office in order to host more than 200 Parker County Teen Court cases.

PCTC is a volunteer program that allows teenage defendants to clear their records of “Class C” misdemeanor offenses. It also allows volunteer students to participate in the judicial system while earning service hours for such clubs as NHS. For example, the students take on the roles of jury, clerk, bailiff and attorneys for all PCTC trials.

    Not much is known about this Joseph’s life. The one thing I know for sure is that he was a very brave man.

    Five years ago, the federal government spent $169 billion to fund basic research and development. This fiscal year, it’s down to $134 billion.

    My sister Robbie Benton’s funeral was Friday afternoon at White’s Funeral Home. The gravesite was outside of Mineral Wells. The respect shown by the good folks of Parker County and the surrounding area was overwhelming.

    In recent years I’ve written quite a bit about the introduction and negative consequences of non-native or invasive species. Fire ants, killer bees, English sparrows, Asian carp, feral hogs and others too numerous to list have forever changed our local ecosystem.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: TV offers

    Have you seen those TV offers where they give a price for one product and then offer a second like items for-free? All you have to do is pay a separate shipping and handling charge for the “free” items.

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s in a name?

    Names are important. When my son, Rush, (who’s named after my father) and his wife, Vanessa, were expecting their third daughter, I gave up on having a male namesake and suggested, in jest, they call her “Johnnie Pauline.”

    The church in the Old Testament lived under a theocracy. That is, both the church and state were one. God anointed kings. Civil laws and religious laws were one and the same.

    Anyone who is my age or older has heard the famous quote, “A chicken in every pot.” It is normally attributed to Herbert Hoover during his 1928 presidential bid.

  • VIEWPOINT: Obsessed with sports

    I remember reading a synopsis of the five reasons for the “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” by Edward Gibbon in which he listed the Romans’ obsession with sports at the coliseum as a cause of the fall of the empire.

    On March 21, this paper published an article about a six-month drug trafficking investigation involving 12 people. On the front page was a photo of the 12 people involved. The use of drugs had made them a sorry-looking bunch. The look in their eyes was particularly disturbing.
