LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Signs of things to come


I feel so fortunate to teach in a community where people know and “live out” the true meaning of Christmas by giving of themselves and their resources to help those who are in need. You all make Peaster a wonderful place to live and work.

With heartfelt thanks,

Kaye Wood, Peaster High School PAL sponsor

Do you suppose they learned anything?

Dear Editor,

The college boys went to Antarctica in the middle of the Antarctic summer and discovered that it is not as warm as they had anticipated.

The ship they were on got stuck in the ice. The icebreaker that was sent to rescue the lads got bound up in the ice. They were taken off of the Russian ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, by helicopter to an Australian ship by helicopter from the Chinese ship the Snow Dragon.

The Snow Dragon was still ice-bound 24 hours after the rescue.

The American taxpayer has spent $7.4  billion dollars helping other countries fight global warming since 2010. John Kerry says that it is “truly a life and death challenge.” From the looks of things it has been a good investment, if you like cooler temperatures. The battle is beginning to turn in their favor.

Minnesota is in the worst deep freeze in more than 20 years, the wind chills were around 50 degrees below zero. The Arctic sea ice is 60 percent bigger than it was a year ago. Pack ice blocked the northwest passage the entire year. In my humble opinion, mankind doesn’t wear big enough britches to be able to influence the climate. If you really want to know what it’s all about, follow the money.

From the appearance of things so far, Larry Jones may get the opportunity to cut the ice on his stock tanks this year.

Richard Feuilly, Weatherford
