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!

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.

District Court, Court-At-Law Jury must report
To the Editor: I want to thank each citizen who has responded to jury service since I took the bench in 2009. Without your response and participation, the right that we are all guaranteed under our U.S. and Texas constitutions would not be able to be exercised.
