Tree talk

To the Editor: The trees downtown have turned into a major problem. First they attract birds who poop on the sidewalk. Then the city has to come around and clean the area. Then the city workers march up the streets shooting cannons to get the birds to leave so they stop messing up the sidewalks. Now the birds have moved on and the trees drop acorns everywhere. Not a pretty sight or great for stores that have customers tracking broken acorns into their stores and can be a trip hazard. Now the city workers have to come around and trim the trees. Why? Because the trees are too large. But the trimming doesn’t help. They are still too tall and too full. They are the wrong kind of trees for downtown. We have to pay money for a permit to put up a sign and also the cost of the signs. You can’t see the signs because the trees are too tall. People call all the time looking for our building because they can’t see our sign.

Don’t you think it would be a lot more cost effective for the city of Corsicana to remove the trees, which would prohibit the birds, the mess they make, the acorns and allow our customers to see our signs? Maybe the money you save on employees cleaning, shooting and trimming could go toward new street lights in the downtown area. Problem solved. No birds, no bird mess to clean up, no acorns, no trees to trim or restring with lights. Help your local business by getting rid of the trees.

Appreciates care

To the Editor: I have heard and seen some unacceptable things in nursing homes.

Certainly I was devastated when I was left with no choice but to enter my 85-year-old husband into a nursing home. A massive stroke left him unable to talk or walk and with much brain impairment.

To my utter dismay, the first nursing home I entered him into dismissed him back to my care. They couldn’t handle him.

Country Meadows Nursing Home accepted him with true concern, and extraordinary care for a very needy man.

Yes, he requires a lot more care, patience and understanding than most, but for three months they have administered that care with a cheerful smile.

I have nothing but praise for those compassionate nurses, the administrative personnel, the social worker, and all the friendly employees.

    To the Editor: According to a Gallup poll, 73 percent of the American people are in favor of term limits.
    If you are one of those Americans favoring term limits there is good news. Term limits exist — they are called ELECTIONS.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
