     Alice celebrates its second annual

    pancake breakfast 

    Editor:

    The second annual pancake breakfast in Alice was a spectacular event. More than 133 people attended. That kept the volunteer workforce of 20 busy all morning long, flipping pancakes and frying bacon. Attendees came from all over the sate and as far away as Denmark and Australia.

    Yes, our country is broke

    Editor:

    Jerry says, “We’re not as broke as Republicans say.”

    Say what? Reality check: The federal debt stands at $16 trillion today, up from $4 trillion in 2000. (That’s trillion, $16,000,000,000,000.) The federal budget deficit has been approximately $1.2 trillion per year for the last four years.

    Story on Levy shows double standard

    Editor:

    I was flabbergasted upon reading the recent Courant article featuring Claire Levy. The double standard was obvious.  

    In the Courant article, Levy was made out to be the hero — the people’s advocate for wildfire compensation. The article noted that Levy is on the Lower North Fork Fire Commission. Left out was the little detail that she voted against the commission’s very inception.

    On behalf of the Mill Creek Valley Historical Society’s board of directors, we would like to thank everyone involved with the recent yard sale. The proceeds from this sale will help in the restoration of the Mill City House. 

    A special thank-you goes out to Ian Neligh, the Courant editor, for his wonderful article on the Mill City House. Thanks to all of the donors and the buyers. We hope to make this an annual event.

    Politics should be about good ideas, not money

    Editor:

    I take issue with unions being labeled as some kind of evil, and especially those for teachers, fire and police. These people risk their lives for us every day, and if you say that teachers don’t belong in the grouping, you obviously never taught in a city school. 

    Well, I have, and in my first year while standing at the door of my room greeting students as they entered, I heard the sound of gunfire in the hall just around the corner from my room.
