Letters contain false accusations, shift focus Two weeks ago I reported on a presentation sponsored by the pro-gay community at the senior center in town ("A Talent for Misleading," Morris Sun Tribune, March 10.) The March 17 edition printed responses containing false accusations which shifted the focus away from the original topic, the claimed biblical rightness of homosexual-lesbian sexual practice. Let's get back on track. Under the pretense of applauding my courage, Mr.
Exposing distortions in theological lecture I want to applaud Pastor Donald Main, who recently had the courage in his March 10, 2012 editorial "A Talent for Misleading" to expose distortions in David Weiss' lecture in Morris about homosexuality and Christianity. Weiss argues that Christians can support gay and lesbian relationships, and they can do so as Christians.
Who takes responsibility? My step-son is in Afghanistan serving our country in the military. He wanted to send me flowers for my birthday. He told his dad they were coming on February 21. My husband stayed home all day waiting for them. Nothing came. We went out for supper in Morris that evening. The flowers did not show up the next day either so my husband alerted his son to put a tracer on it. Well, at 5:30 a.m. on February 23, the message came that they were indeed delivered by UPS and were sitting outside our front door. They had been delivered in the hour we were in town.
Agencies should be helping, protecting elderly citizens I want to let the public know how I, as an elderly citizen, have been mistreated by our local law enforcement, the Big Stone County HRA Board and staff. An incident took place where I live, at the Lakeside Apartments about five months ago, in which I was physically assaulted by another resident. The HRA Board, staff and law enforcement refused to help me have the attacker evicted from the building. There were witnesses to the attack and it was caught on video.
Celebrate Farm Check-Out Week Stevens County Farm Bureau is proud to celebrate Food Check-Out Week during the week of Feb. 19 to 25. Now in its fourteenth year, Food Check-Out Week highlights America's abundant food supply, made possible largely by America's productive farmers. Farm and ranch families comprise less than two percent of the U.S. population. Yet each farmer on average produces enough food and fiber for 154 people in the U.S. and abroad.
Water meter reading causes hardship Recently, my mother of 88 years and long-time resident of Morris had to be moved to a retirement facility for health reasons. She chose a facility in Glenwood because I, her son, live nearby A month later we received a utility bill from Morris City Water and Sewer for the amount of $1,437.12. We were devastated to say the least! It has put a hardship on my mother. A leaky toilet was the culprit, which I have replaced. We are trying to deal with the city on this bill. The ironic part is the city put in a new water meter after the fact.
Food shelf has successful 2011 The Stevens County Food Shelf would like to thank all those who contributed food and/or dollars in 2011. Special thanks to the churches, schools, clubs, businesses and UMM for all their help. We are so thankful that the Stevens County area people are so generous.

Red Kettle Campaign benefits community On behalf of the clients the Salvation Army will be able to serve, I would like to thank the community for their support. We raised over $18,000 during our Christmas Kettle Campaign. More than 34 individuals and 19 different groups rang bells to make this possible. Their contributions are a shining example of the true spirit of Christmas. To everyone who supported our Christmas Kettle effort, please know how valuable your contributions are. Thank you very much for your ongoing support.
Thanks to Morris, Cyrus community for support during trying times One never knows how truly blessed they are until they lose something. In this case, it was not just something but rather someone. My wife and I recently lost three very dear people in our family. Only a week before Christmas, we were notified that my wife's twin sister, brother- in-law, cousin (raised as her nephew), and her niece were all in a devastating car accident in Evansville, Indiana. Her 36-year-old twin sister, Jenny, as well as her eight-year-old cousin were killed instantly.
