Corsicana — Support for Shelton

Dear Editor:

I would like to take a few moments of your time to express my support for Darrell Shelton as the Navarro County Commissioner for Pct.1. As former principal of Corsicana High School, I have worked comprehensively with Darrell on numerous issues that affected not only our school but our community as well. I have found his character and decision-making skills to be exemplary. Leadership, strategic planning, care, and motivation are inherent traits that are fine-tuned through hands-on experience and dedication. More than anyone else, Darrell Shelton possesses these traits and has used them to make our school a better place.

Darrell Shelton is well known among the school community to have an intense regard for the welfare of our youth, working diligently to see that they not only met their obligation to obtain an education, but that they worked to become positive members of our community.

To be sure, Darrell is a professional of the highest quality. He is an innovative department chair for science who has earned the respect of administrators, colleagues, and students. Most importantly, he handles pressure well and offers help to those who do not. As a result of his efforts, he betters the lives of those around him.

Darrell Shelton would represent Navarro County extremely well as the commissioner for Precinct 1. He is an invaluable asset whom I highly recommend constituents vote for. His dedication to this community has established him as one of the finest representatives that we have. If any of your readers would like to discuss his attributes in more detail, they should not hesitate to contact me at (903) 874-8211.

‘Tetched’ response

To the editor:

I am replying to the letter written by Eula Faye on Sunday, June 17. Tetched in the head? No, and neither am I.

I am an 86-year-old man, disabled and in a wheelchair for a number of years. I sit out in my driveway on Northwood when the weather permits and wave at the people passing by.

Over the years I have made many friends this way. Many times someone will stop and say ‘I have waved or honked at you for years and I just want to meet you.’ During the holidays several have stopped with a little Christmas greeting and I feel so blessed that they care enough to do this.

So Eula Faye, stay in your driveway and keep waving and talking to people passing by. I intend to.

Jack Owens
