In the June 5 Sunday paper, there was the article from Steve Wolfe telling us that he and Gwen would be moving to the Amarillo area to be closer to their children and grandchildren. This is normal behavior for us older people so we understand, however, their...

Mayor not caring about the poor

June 21, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Like most “limited government” politicians, our mayor, Dennis Kintigh, evidently believes that the purposes of government at any level are to serve the rich and punish the poor. How else are we to interpret the positive zeal with which he seized the...

Don’t judge without checking the facts

June 18, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I am writing this letter because of a letter to the editor in RDR on May 21. I have been debating with myself on writing this because the Bible says not to judge, but I feel the need to say this. The letter from Dave Swink struck a nerve in me and this is...
