Senior center near golf course would be wonderful
To the editor:
As a 40-year resident of Willard Street, my family and I would absolutely love to see this senior center go in across the street from us.
A few additional points that would make this a good site for the new senior center would include the fact that the Army Reserve Center borders the Municipal Golf Course clubhouse. Seniors could very easily utilize this course by walking out of their back door and directly to the clubhouse. No transportation required.
Another great plus is the fact that the Army Reserve Center already has a nice gymnasium. This location is also only two to three blocks away from Fairgrounds Park, which makes for a nice place to walk and lounge. Fairgrounds Park has also been linked to Pangborn Park via a gravel trail through a nice wooded area.
Just a few items that I thought were worth mentioning. We are very excited to see what unfolds. Fingers crossed over here in favor of seeing this project happen at the former Army Reserve Center.
Obama has failed to keep ‘promises’ made in 2008
To the editor:
I have been reading items in Letters to the Editor and Mail Call about the coming election on Nov. 6. President Obama is running on the same “promises” he made in 2008.
I do not think he followed through on any of the promises he made in 2008.
He didn’t produce much of the background information that was requested. Now, everyone who voted for Obama wants Gov. Mitt Romney to disclose all kinds of records. It was Obama who said, “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”
In 2013, when Obamacare kicks in, there are as many as 25 taxes that will go into effect. The president has robbed Medicare to support Obamacare, and some doctors are not going to take Medicare patients because of all the red tape. Seniors no longer will get the quality health care they are now receiving.
Think about all the taxes going into effect when Obamacare kicks in Jan. 1, 2013. Think about this when you go to the polls on Nov. 6, because if the president is re-elected, your children and grandchildren will not enjoy the lifestyle you now have.
