Letters (Week of Nov. 2008)

Senior center needs financial assistance


I would like to thank the people of Hillsboro for supporting the senior center?s soup-and-pie supper on Saturday, Nov. 8. There were so many people that they ran out of pie. I don?t think that has happened before.

I worked for the Hillsboro Senior Center for 15 years and am still helping when needed.

The center is struggling financially right now, and I was very disappointed that when the center board went to the city council and asked for help, the council voted no.

The center serves 30 to 45 people every day and delivers dinners to 10 to 15 people every day, people who can?t drive anymore. By doing this, they get a hot meal every day and I?m sure that some people get to stay in their homes longer because of this service.

It would be a real tragedy if the center would have to lock its doors. I?m asking that the city council reconsider its decision.

Letter about abortion is much appreciated


Thank you, Debbie Miller, for a well written letter. It says everything that many Ameri?cans know and believe.

I voted Republican only because of the pre-borns? right to life. We must not become a ?culture of death? in America.

Please let your state senator and congressmen know your wishes when legislation comes up concerning life issues.
