Letter to the editor

August 12, 2010

To the editor:

Thank you to the community and 27 local businesses for supporting the food drive for the Baldwin Food Pantry. Your generosity is very much appreciated. Around 870 pounds of food and household items were collected, plus $760 in cash. It came at critical time when the pantry was low and the need high.

Thank you for reaching out to help your neighbors. Baldwin City is such a wonderful and caring community. Coupon packets are still available and we will continue to accept donations until they are gone. Coupons expire Aug. 31.

Tonight’s debate at McKibben was well attended and as expected slightly more for the incumbent Dr. Brown. Many of the teaching staff and students that support him were present. Miss Gregory had some supporters on hand to cheer her on and none were disappointed from either side. The questions were well formed to help those in attendance understand the two points of view and I hope, coming away from this debate, it sparked enough interest to check the incumbents voting record and decide if they line up with that persons point of view. I applaud Dr. Brown for stating he supports abortion but this totally is against all I believe in. Life begins when cells begin a process of meiosis and thus is the true definition of life. Murder is the human derivative of ending that process. Life is ended from the giver of life thus murder regardless of motive. I applaud Miss Gregory for standing up for the silent small life that is begun. Yes I am a conservative but I could also say I am a Christian and a Constitutional supporter. I believe in small or limited government and fiscal responsibility. Government should never be directly involved telling people how they should live outside the original constitutional rights. Thank You Miss Gregory for your stand for the people and a heart for our State and Nation.
