LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Wishful thinking


Another thing, I am sure when you or a loved one is ill you want the best care. I can assure you our medical professionals deserve to be compensated for their expertise. I’m sure you get top dollar from your insurance clients. By the way, we have not received notice of any drop in premiums. Did you get a special rate as an Obama backer? I understand that many small businesses will be forced to cease operation because of these changes.

I have no idea who you are, your age, race or background, but I am sure at one time you had or have parents, perhaps a spouse and children. Open your eyes and your heart and visit a cancer center and see what I have discovered since my diagnosis three months ago. I am about to have my lifetime limit of PET/CT scans per your president and his Obamacare. Do you have any idea the expense of those tests? I can assure you – they are not cheap – but necessary to know the status of my condition. 

Yes, Mr. Tilly, this is bad news for the Republicans and all other citizens of our country.

Respectfully submitted,

Bettie Allen, Weatherford

It’s game on for political season

Dear Editor,

It’s time for game on!

It’s hard to believe, but Summer 2013 is over, school has started, football is in full swing and the 2014 political season is officially on.

As you prepare to do your part in the selection of our elected officials, I invite you to keep some key principles in mind. Our purpose is to register voters, educate voters and turn out the vote for our candidates. 

Just 76 percent of the eligible citizens are registered to vote.  Twenty-four percent are on the sidelines. In order for us to register those folks, we need to be deputized. It’s an easy process.  Go by the Parker County Elections Office and talk to Gina. Then, we need volunteers for local venues. There will be a voter registration booth at Wild West Days in Springtown, the Azle Sting and Parkfest. We also need folks to register voters at churches and schools.
