Let's keep it clean

DOERUN — Dear editor:

When my daughter was small and we were riding in the car, she opened a piece of candy and tossed the paper out the window. My husband pulled over and made her pick it up. He said, "Not only I, but thousands have fought for this country. I lived a year in Viet Nam in filth and will not have a member of my family being responsible for causing litter in my country!"

I went out today and picked up piles of cigarette butts, candy wrappers, soft drink and beer bottles, and fast food containers from the road in front of my house. When we toss out litter to the side of the road, its like spitting on our flag! This is our country. How many have fought and died for it!

We should all be responsible for keeping it clean. We can't all serve in the armed forces, but we can all do our part by not littering our highways and roads. I give my promise to my husband, Jimmy Revell, who fought for our freedom, and to all those who serve in our armed forces, that I will do my part to keep our roads and highways clean by not littering.

 I challenge everyone else to do the same. We have a great country and it is our responsibility to do our part to keep it that way!

Priscilla Revell

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
