To the Editor: I am 63 years old, a veteran and patriotic American citizen.
One of the reasons I served my country was to protect the separation of church and state. The county officials of Henderson County want to have the Bible as the law of the land. Not the Constitution. I intend on putting a stop to that in court.
I have already notified all of them, and the Keep Athens Beautiful committee, that if the Nativity scene is put up again on government property, I will file a lawsuit to remove it.
Cake lovers appreciated
To the Editor: We would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone that volunteered to make our 2nd Annual Bake Sale & Designer Cake Auction a success last Friday.
We had five beautiful, custom Valentine's cakes donated by local bakers Jamie Johnson, Kathy Herron, Nonnie Farmer, Valarie Raley and Collin Street Bakery.
Also, a special thanks to all of our silent cake auction bidders, including the winners Judith Randall, Byron Cook and Lance Cook.
Together we were able to raise $1,880 for Relay for Life of Navarro County!

I was saddened to read the story in the paper stating the city was planning to close the public swimming pools so that a for-profit water park located on the edge of town across an Interstate highway could make a little more money.
