To the Editor:

I hope all the disabled veterans and people on social security enjoyed the holidays without a C.O.L.A. increase in payments for two years in a row.

What has become of this country we love, when it forgers our veterans and elderly?

To the Editor:

In regards to the effects of the recent snowstorms, I would like to extend my appreciation to all the good Samaritans in our community. I was stuck in the middle of the road in my little car and was trying to dig myself a path when to my rescue a man in a little black truck came to my rescue and pushed me out (by hand) down the road until I got enough momentum to keep going. I didn’t even get a change to thank him only wave my hand out the window or he would have still been pushing me. Then I got home for lunch and someone had plowed me out, my sidewalk and the street. As I was singing the praises of my Good Samaritan/Samaritans I found that we had them all over; people helping people. I am so grateful to live here and have such wonderful folks to associate with.

Thank you so much.
