Letter to the Editor: Christmas Fantasy pride

To the Editor:

I had six friends with me from McGregor in Waukon for the Christmas Fantasy Luncheon Monday, November 19. I was so proud (having been born and bred in Waukon) as to the elegance and loveliness of this occasion. I can’t imagine the planning and volunteering that goes into this.

Thank you, Waukon folks for making me so very proud!

Letter to the Editor: Hang your heads in shame

To the Editor:

Whomever is removing the bronze flag holder medallions and/or staffs from Veterans’ gravesites should hang your heads in shame. If you desire something “free,” I encourage you to contact me for free counseling.

... that I remember when I was a member of the basketball team at my parochial high school, and we played lots of other Catholic school teams, there were some players who made a habit of making the Sign of the Cross before shooting a free throw. And I remember thinking then that probably God doesn’t give a God ... er, ah, you know ... whether or not you make that free throw. But it can’t hurt.

Letter to the Editor: Highly entertained by “Anything Goes”

To the editor:

Last night (November 8) Waukon was treated to a voyage of high seas entertainment from the cast and crew of “Anything Goes.” Leading the way was hands on hips and attitude forward Sarah Gruman as Reno Sweeney.  She sparkled as she belted out the best of Cole Porter.

Letter to the Editor: Get their act together

To the Editor:

A week ago from the day I am writing this letter, Armistice Day, November 11, we had an election and it went pretty much conservative, which I like. My concern is that it could be too late - the liberals have broken us morally and financially. Too many bottom feeders and not enough producers and taxpayers, and the last six years have been terrible.

... that it’s beginning to look as if we are going to have winter again this year. Trees have shed their leaves for the most part, and what remains are “bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang,” as Shakespeare wrote.
