Falling Bricks reaction

 (Editor’s note: This was a “Soundoff” to the story this week about brick falling from the top of a downtown building)

To the Editor: If this had happened during Derrick Days, people could have been killed ...

In a recent conversation with the Mayor, I was told that there is not much the City can do about derelict buildings like the one owned by D.W. Vanderslice.

I think we can do one thing: put huge signs on these buildings identifying the owners and posting a warning that "if you walk near these buildings you could be hurt or killed, or if you park your car near these eyesores, it may be damaged or destroyed."

Mr. Mayor, this would be a start. But in the long run you and the City Council have to take some action to save our downtown with an effort to take strong action against these pathetic owners.

And does anyone actually believe that a 25mph wind gust blew these bricks off the building?

Presidential thoughts

To the Editor: Let's forget about skin color and ethnicity for a moment – please! Have you asked yourself why it seems that our current administration in Washington thinks they can spend the country out of debt? Does that make any sense? Could you spend yourself out of debt? It never made sense until recently.

President Obama is doing exactly what has been mapped out by others to bring about a financial crisis. There will not be enough room here except to list the different people and organizations he has aligned himself with over the years – even before 2008. If you care about America, check these people and organizations out for yourself. They are:  ACORN, New Party of Chicago, Bill Ayers, Democratic Socialist of America, Saul Alinsky, and professors Cloward and Piven.

By the way, President Obama is not alone in these relationships – Secretary of State Clinton is too to an extent. Why these things were  not brought out during the election of 2008 we will probably never know.

The “change” candidate Obama was promising was a change to a Socialistic State. He won't say this to the public but just research some of the people he has chosen to associate with.

We have an election coming up this November. I urge every reader to be color blind and to vote for the candidate that will bring us back to the America our founding fathers envisioned and fought for. The change President Obama promised might just lead to our demise – more government control and freedom from religion.

    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.
