Letters, Sept. 17

Democracy at risk

The president and his supporters should be worried; we are on to them. If this president didn’t want negative coverage, he should tout his “wins,” like the economy, unemployment and the job numbers — even though he claimed, with no evidence (as usual), that the same great numbers under Obama weren’t real.

Instead, he tweets “no collusion” and his PR lawyer ridiculously claims “truth isn’t truth.” He continues to drive wedges between us: “Mexicans are rapists,” “NFL players hate this country.”

“The goal of fake news is voter suppression” says letter writer Doug Dusenberry, when that is actually the goal of the Republican Party. Beginning with McConnell’s pledge to make Obama a one-term president, the GOP has put party and power over country every time. President Obama’s administration pulled this country’s economy out of the ditch and they are fully responsible for the recovery Trump wants us to believe is his “miracle.” Now, deficits are soaring, our social safety net is on the chopping block and the world is aghast that a once great country could have so easily accomplished Putin’s goals. Dusenberry and his Dear Leader have put our very democracy at risk. They have lost all credibility.

Elect Bill Froehlich

Bill Froehlich is the best choice for Jackson County sheriff. The current sheriff was appointed without a vote of the citizens after the departure of Corey Falls.

Falls left this county halfway through his elected term. It’s appalling the appointed sheriff took an endorsement from Falls. Corey Falls ditched our community after taking campaign donations. Since then we’ve seen lack of tangible action and planning for two years.

Bill truly understands strategies for planning, policing, addiction and mental health. With 30 years of law enforcement experience and degrees in organizational management, abnormal psychology and criminology, Bill Froehlich is the best choice.

Bill does not have political favors owed or need the money. He is not part of any good old boy system. He is funded out of his own pocket and citizen donations.

Rich people problems

Melissa Traynor is upset that in her rich neighborhood, a ruckus that is louder than tennis is ruining her way of life and has become a “national problem.”

I don’t have the time and luxury between living paycheck to paycheck to even know what the heck “pickleball” is. Oh, rich people problems.
