Thankful for response
To the Editor: On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express my appreciation for all the cards, letters, prayers and contributions that people have sent our way. I would like to say a special thank you to the Lone Star Cowboy Church family and Bro. Charky Marquis for the wonderful benefit they had for my family.
So many cards and prayers have been received and it has been overwhelming. There are so many people that helped with the benefit that I hate to name them in fear I might miss somebody. But I would like to say a special thanks to James and Lacy Spain, Jason and Osha Joles, Mike and Tamara Spain, John and Wanda Spain, J.D. Johnston and family, Mickey and Camille McCain, Chuck Rash, Bobby Brady, James Green, Tim Nicholson, Mrs. Bobbi Nicholson, and so many more that donated their time, money and effort. It was a huge success on a messy, rainy night. I will forever be thankful to each and every one of you.
I hope I can repay the favor to all of you. It has been a true blessing to see the friends and family I have that truly care about my family. Thank you to all my wonderful family for always being there when needed.
God has blessed me with a great wife, kids, friends and family.
Thanks again and God Bless,

To the Editor: I am writing to discuss my recent experience with both Navarro Regional Emergency Department and Corsicana Fire Department.
I have worked, in some capacity, with Navarro Regional as a RN since 2004. Until recently I think I truly did not realize what a special group of people that I’ve worked with for the past eight years. I hear so much negativity regarding Navarro Regional, but let me just say that as a group you would be hard pressed to find a finer group of nurses or doctors to care for you or your loved ones.
A few days ago my 5 year old son injured his eye. We immediately brought him to the ER at Navarro. He was triaged immediately and assessed by the staff on that day. I have been an ER/ICU nurse for over 10 years, but when it is your child things are much different. The staff that day treated my son and my family with such respect and care I know I would be hard pressed to find that type of care anywhere. We received excellent care and were transferred via ambulance to and arrived at Children’s in Dallas in less than three hours from our arrival to the ER at Navarro. That is amazing.
As a staff member in the ER/ICU at Navarro I see it every day, but it brings on a whole new meaning when it is your family member being treated. Thanks to the care we received at Navarro in collaboration with Children’s my son is home and doing great. I could never name them all, but Lisa, Melissa, Debbie, Dr. Drain, and Dr. Vinson went above and beyond to treat my son that night along with Paramedics Jenkins and Campbell with CFD-EMS.
Thank you is simply not enough. I am truly proud to say that I work with a great group of people on a daily basis and this situation simply proved that.
Navarro County is fortunate to have a facility that provides state of the art care and treatment to their loved ones.
To the Editor: Recently while stopped at a traffic light in Corsicana behind a police officer, I witnessed two teenagers walking across the intersection. Both boys had shorts pulled down exposing their underwear, and as they were directly in front of the officer, the first boy pulled his pants down until his rear was bare. I began honking my horn in disapproval. The light turned green and the officer turned and left. The two boys walked away laughing and high-fiving each other.
I was in total shock and disbelief of what I had just witnessed. I thought to myself that there was no way that the officer could not have seen what I saw.
My question is this — is there a city ordinance that prohibits this type of behavior? If not, then a new law should be established. I would have liked to have witnessed these actions in the 1950’s and 1960’s when I was growing up. I am old school, and this is both obscene and totally disrespectful. This is a big problem, so let’s fix it.
Parents need to take control of this situation at home as part of “rearing their children,” instead of blowing it off or ignoring what is going on around them. Since they do not, it is up to the city to step in and “babysit” by making a law against public indecency.

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.
