Kudos to CDS

To the Editor: Some commendations for Janet Jacobs and Deanna Kirk from the last Weekend Edition:

First, Janet Jacobs. Already an admirer based on her “super reporter” ability, often landing on front page in multiples, I look forward to her creative writing opportunities in the Weekend Edition.

Last week, I smiled, chuckled and laughed seeing her bee-stung lip and hearing the office ladies’ check-ins. Janet Jacobs is a tremendous asset to Corsicana — very pleasant, very versatile ... You all keep taking good care of her.

Speaking of Janet, I recently read the book produced by a metroplex-based writers group, edited by her. It is called “Out of our Minds” and is available at the public library. The book shines with a variety of genres.

Secondly, Deanna Kirk, the voice for Christian faith — a local person as positively influential as Rececca Carrell on KCBI-FM’s morning show. As a writer of inspirational, faith-affirming purpose myself, I always read Deanna’s work. Her piece produced from a conversation with Jane Biltz grabbed me and would not let me go. The piece flowed beautifully and sparkled with perfect precision about Jane’s importance to Corsicana. When my mother Sylvia worked as director of the Navarro Council of the Arts from 1983 to 2000, I was not living here. However, I came to know Jane Biltz through my Mom’s narrations. At the right times, Jane would pop into Mom’s office with comfort and encouragement.

Thank you, Janet and Deanna. Keep up the great work.
