Dear editor,

City Council members are elected to help carry the burden of local government for their fellow citizens. Adding millions of dollars to an almost paid debt seems an odd way to help carry a burden. Adding onto an existing bond, consolidating, or even a totally new bond issue may be legal, but doesn’t seem very ethical without input from our citizens. If we, the community, have no say in the matter, some of us reading this letter will be dead and gone by the time the full debt is paid, and we will have shouldered our children with the load, and our

Dear editor,

When I was a young boy during WW II, we had two framed pictures on our living room walls: Franklin Roosevelt and Jesus. My parents held one almost as high as the other.

Later came John Kennedy’s New Frontier and LBJ’s Great Society and War on Poverty. Each of these democrat-party programs might have been well-intentioned. Each of them failed. After Nixon and his scandals, military debacles, etc., we suffered almost two decades of Clinton and Obama bad governance and corruption. We survived as a nation. Then came Trump.

Dear Editor,

Freestone County Commissioners Court hides behind the fact that they meet during the day when the people they should be representing are working. The court needs to meet on a specific night every month that does not change and set a specific time for citizens to get on the agenda, so the court can act on their requests. Call your commissioner and the judge and tell them you want this changed. Don't make Cinnamon bear this alone and do not do useless things like post "you go girl" that does nothing. Call, complain and participate in YOUR government!

My heartfelt thanks to all of the VFDs in Freestone County:

Have you ever had a short Fire Department Captain walk up to you and say "Get out of your house!" I did and I was glad and was made to feel very thankful. We had an experience at my home in Lakewood that I wouldn't wish on anyone.
