Political thoughts

To the Editor: To commit to something means to keep your word and in keeping your word means you will honor those you have committed to. Frank Kuchar is a man of his word.

Some of Frank’s commitments to We the People:

He is committed to work on getting our economy back on track. The economy is his first and highest priority.

Another is immigration. National security, border safety, citizenship and “balkanization” figure in to serious matters facing our nation.

Term limits are another of his priorities. Going as a citizen legislator means knowing what is best and needed by the country and what the desires of the citizens are back home. Not to be consumed by the distorted perspective often taken on by many a congress person when terms they have served have exceeded their general purpose of seeking that honored office of representing us — that is reason enough to elect such a person as Frank.

Frank will position himself between the encroaching government and you and me while protecting our rights.

Doing the job while thinking of you and me — vote Frank Kuchar. To learn more on Frank’s positions and commitments, go to  www.Kuchar4USHouse.com

Humane praise

To the Editor: I want to tell you an amazing and absolutely true story about the wonderful day of Feb. 25, 2012.

In response to an invitation from Paul DePugh, manager of the local CiCi’s Pizza, the Corsicana City Animal Shelter held one of its most successful adoption events ever. With all the shelter staff and more than 20 volunteers from the Humane Society of Navarro County working all day, 31 shelter pets found their for-all-time homes. Most of the adoption fees were provided by Cici’s and animal lovers in our area who care enough to put their money where their mouths are.

The weather was perfect, the inviting setting ideal for pets and people alike. No trains passing by, no competition for attention, no foul-smelling air — that formula worked beautifully. Pleasant surroundings and dedicated city employees and volunteers made the day just right for adopters and adoptees.

To borrow a line from the movies, if we build it, they will come. If we build it, volunteers will come; if we build it, adopters will come; if we build it, the community will come to support the facility and make it a source of pride in our city.

Mayor McClanahan, City Council members, City Manager Standridge, I challenge you to do everything you can to build it! Solicit private funds, hold a bond election, hire a grant writer — do whatever it takes to get an efficient, inviting facility built. If one day of perfection saved the lives of more than 30 pets, just imagine how many would be saved if we build a proper new Shelter. Find a way to make that one perfect day of February the norm, not the exception. Turn that Field of Dreams of 45th Street into a never-ending happy success story.
