LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: An act of kindness

An act of kindness

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to share an experience that reminded me how thoughtful and kind our citizens are.

After celebrating my 80th birthday, my husband being seriously injured and in the hospital for five weeks and our precious, four-legged little princess dying in my arms, my heart and mind were heavy. I thought a quick stop at Mesquite Pit for a sandwich would help.

Then the kind waitress came to my table, I thought to bring me my check. She brought me a surprise instead! She informed me that my check had been “taken care of.”

Surprised, I asked who would do that? The young lady said, “a family.”

Please know whoever you are, I sincerely thank you. You touched my heart and lifted my spirit. May God bless you and your family.

Thanks.

Glenda Perkins, Weatherford

Thanks for cards to Senior Circle members

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Weatherford Regional Medical Center Senior Circle I would like to thank the schools and churches listed below for doing a special community project for our Senior Circle members. The children colored and wrote a special message on the birthday cards to the Senior Circle members that were then mailed to them.

These cards bring a special smile to our members.

A special “thank you” to each teacher who works with me to make sure the cards are ready and each child does their best. Without the teachers involvement this project would not be possible.

Special thanks to Sue Schriber for designing our new cards. They went out this year and everyone loved them. You did a wonderful job. Thank you for offering to design new cards for us. You are very talented.

Thank you to Weatherford ISD elementary schools Austin, Crockett, Curtis, Ikard, Juan Seguin and Wright; private schools Victory Baptist Academy and Weatherford Christian School; and churches Lake Shore Baptist, North Side Baptist and Victory Baptist.

    Almost without exception, most farms are protected to some degree by guard animals. Dogs and cats are most commonly used to defend against intruders and nuisance pests around the farmstead. In recent years with the proliferation of coyotes, many folks are using guard donkeys or llamas to protect their livestock.

    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.
