If the Republicans continue to pursue a political strategy defined by self-hypnosis, hyperbole, hypocrisy, hysteria and hyper-partisanship, it will cost them more Congressional seats in 2014.
A party that lives in a bubble will become the party that ends up in rubble.
Thanks to volunteers on food drive
To the editor:
How does one say thank you? The Salem community and the Scouts did it again! The Scouts and their parents worked very hard and helped fill the pantry shelves. The Salem Fire Department allowed the use of their building on Main Street for sorting.
Sally Perkins and all the volunteers at the Food for the Hungry Food Pantry want to express our appreciation to all who were involved in this endeavor. The food pantry is a mission of the Pleasant Street United Methodist Church and 66 of our clients were given a turkey and all the fixings for Thanksgiving. These food drives need volunteers to pack and sort the food. Bless you. You show up, year after year. How could we do it without you?
Our thanks to Marilyn Campbell owner of the Scottish Highlands Golf Course. Each year, Marilyn allows golfers to play golf for free, provided that they bring a turkey or the price of one. This remarkable woman and the golfers have been doing this for 14 years. In that time,they have donated $4,135.00 in cash, 20,894 pounds of turkey (1,431 turkeys). This year they provided 131 turkeys. Our thanks also go to the 15,014 golfers who have made this happen over the last 14 years. Bless you, one and all. You certainly are “your brother’s keeper.”
