In support of Hospice
To the Editor: Death and dying are unfortunately a part of life that we all must face at some point. I am writing to increase awareness of an indispensable resource that is available in our community. Hand in Hand Hospice is a locally owned and operated company that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all people coping with a terminal illness.
November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care available to them through hospice.
One of the most important messages that people need to realize is that hospice care is there to help patients and families alike focus on living. The hospice team provides expert medical care to keep patients comfortable and enjoy time with their loved ones. We are here 24/7 to answer questions, offer advice and help families adjust to the duties of being a caregiver. We provide continual spiritual and emotional support for all involved.
Hospice is covered 100 percent by Medicare and Medicaid. Some private insurances cover hospice services as well. We provide quality care in the home, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and long term care centers.
Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with terminal illness. Our professional staff and trained volunteers will concentrate on what's important to you in your time of need, and your wishes are our priority.
If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, the time to ask about hospice is now.

Lack of Integrity
To the Editor: In a TV interview, Pat Buchanan said that making promises you know you cannot keep indicates a character flaw — a lack of integrity. Why should anyone be surprised?
Integrity is oneness, wholeness. There is no deceit. Lack of integrity is living a lie. Besides personal disintegration which can exhibit itself in detachment, depression and substance abuse, the real danger of living a lie is blaming others when exposed, and rather than face the truth and its consequences, choosing to bring the house down upon everyone in it.
Living a lie is using another person's social security number, or forging a document when even Gov. Abernathy cannot find a legitimate birth certificate, or hiding academic records which show you were a foreign student, or concealing the fact that your school registration shows you were adopted and are a Muslim living in Indonesia, which does not accept dual citizenship, or suing the DOJ to prevent court movements which could expose you as a fraud.

To the Editor: A letter to Corsicana Mayor Chuck McClanahan:
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.
