Appreciates support

To the Editor: Emhouse Community Center Spaghetti Dinner and fundraiser, held Feb. 25, was a great success.

We thank everyone who came and bought, and ate with us, or furnished any food. Robert and Lavonne, we thank you for the quilt you made and donated. It did very well, was quite successful!

We thank all the candidates who came and showed support.

We can now go another year.


Sue Drain, vice president

Emhouse Community Center

Women’s Health

To the Editor: Does anyone think that the present leadership in Washington, D.C. would approve $35 million a year in funding for Texas Planned Parenthood if they only concerned themselves with women’s health issues, such as screening, counseling and treatment for breast and cervical cancer?

What if Planned Parenthood, while performing these noble tasks worthy of our support, was called by another name? Oh, I don’t know, maybe “Women’s Health?”

I think if Planned Parenthood could no longer actively promote cancer-causing contraceptives and life-destroying abortions, they would get no more than a passing glance from the federal government. The way things are shaping up, we may get the chance to find out.

To the Editor: RE: Feds say ‘No’ to Voter ID law

Isn't it just amazing so many people are against Voter ID? Makes one just wonder why.

In Texas alone it is estimated from two supplied lists, (between) 175,000 and 303,000 registered Hispanic voters do not have a driver's license or state issued ID.  They have been talking about going to ID voting for several years, giving people plenty of time to get it.

 A person has to give picture ID to a hospital, Dr. clinic, and yes, even Goodwill. Now just how hard or costly is that? Is someone saying those thousands of people don't go there? Why would anyone be against it for voting?

Hmmm. As my ole' Daddy use to say "All the dead people in Chicago vote."!

    To the Editor: According to a Gallup poll, 73 percent of the American people are in favor of term limits.
    If you are one of those Americans favoring term limits there is good news. Term limits exist — they are called ELECTIONS.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
