To the Editor: Jesus It’s All Right With Me.
After reading Vicky Prater’s June 10 Corsicana Daily Sun’s guest commentary, I think it would be all right for Jesus Christ to build a new Jerusalem, and its accompanying power plants, in Navarro County as long as they:
1 — locate in the far Southeast reaches of our county;
2 — locate next to the Trinity River;
3 — extract power plant water from the Trinity; and
4 — most importantly, direct their power plant pollution east — to drift to the next county.
And, certainly we know power plants of prayer can be mightly strong.

To the Editor: The U. S. Supreme Court will this month deliver its verdict on President Barack Obama’s health care law referred to as the Affordable Care Act. By overturning the AFC, Medicare prescription benefits for older people saving hundreds of dollars will be suspended. GOP Presidential candidate Romney has pledged to wipe Obama’s law off the books. The coverage for young adults up to age 26 on a parent’s health insurance is a popular provision that no one’s arguing about.
Does that include Romney?
As a single parent I made sure my two sons had health insurance coverage while they were in college. The oldest son married his senior year and was insured with his spouse, and youngest son elected to remain in college two additional years earning a MBA degree, and a 2nd Lt. commission with the U.S. Army ROTC program.
After he turned 22 years of age, I purchased an individual policy under my Federal Health Insurance plan for him from 2002-2005, a period of 36 months. At $263 monthly for 36 months I was out of pocket $9,468.
If my youngest son was 22 years of age today, he could have remained on my Federal Health Insurance plan for a monthly additional cost of about $50, or a total $1,800. My total savings under President Barack Obama’s ACA law would have been $7,668.
I’m sure many of you Corsicana and Navarro County Republicans don’t consider $7,668 but “a drop in the bucket.” As for me, a hard working Democrat, $7,668 savings is a lot of money.
