Letters to the editor

July 24, 2002

To the editor:

I see no ethical, upstanding or above-board reason why a perfectly good police chief was told to submit his resignation by a certain time, or be fired. I think we should look very closely at the motives behind this.

To the editor:

How about those July 4 Fireworks? I, myself, was impressed! (And I'm even a member of CFBC!) That's the organization that has brought fireworks back to Baldwin. CFBC (Citizens For Baldwin City) is a "handful" of people that work very hard to bring our Fourth of July Celebration to life!

Many of us formed this group in 1997 as the Baldwin Jaycees. Unable to keep our membership at 20 people, we lost our charter in early 2000. Thankfully, many of us vowed to continue on toward our goal of restoring the tradition of Fourth of July fun and fireworks to Baldwin City. Some of us remember this tradition at Baker's Liston Stadium, however the ball fields at the Jr. High/High School have proved to be just as fun and accommodating. Our sincere thanks to the Baldwin school district and especially Baldwin City Recreation Commission. We also need to thank all the area businesses, organizations and individuals that contributed with monetary donations, raffle prizes and most of all time and effort!

CFBC has always promised that each year we will try to make the Independence Day Celebration bigger and better than the year prior. I think that promise has held true. The addition of the water slide, the professional band, The Krazy Kats, and the extra food from Wooden Spoke and Don Bowers made the day even more enjoyable. Let's not forget the balloon artist and face painting by Christy from C. Designs.

All in all, I just want to say thanks to my fellow CFBC members for hanging in there and encourage anyone else interested to join us! We charge no dues, we have no age limit and we have fun working toward a good cause.

Donna Kneedler

Chairperson of the Board
