Happy New Year
I do not know who said it first, but I agree that “we are part of all we have met.” I have met many wonderful people in all the three states I have lived in with one having many people speaking Spanish of their native country. Since I did not speak Spanish and those who did not speak or understand English, we used our hands creating an unknown sign language and laughed our way through until both parties understood.
Of course this leads me to believe all the people I have met living in the three states, are living in the most wonderful country this world has to offer. What a blessing from God.
Of course, with God’s blessing, this leads me to understand, that it takes wonderful people to make a wonderful country. Therefore, how could we possibly ask ‘Should old acquaintance be forgotten, And never brought to mind and the wonderful days of auld lang syne.
Never miss a local story.
I wish all of you a wonderful Happy New Year.

Talk to an adviser
Dr. Bill Cummings’ past columns are the biblical exegesis of a man going through, what I call spiritual menopause; which by the way, everyone (even popes) experiences sometime in their lives.
Dr. Cummings’ impressive Christian bibliology training makes his interpretation of scriptures embraceable by most theologians; however, his columns of late challenging the validity and saneness of scriptures along with his peculiar justifications border on the absurd if not satanic.
Dr. Cummings would be better served (as would his readers) if his spiritual anxieties, which appear to have scrambled his spiritual sanity, were discussed with his spiritual adviser and not in his columns.

It’s Bush’s fault
David Carter wondered in his letter to Viewpoints on Monday, “Who’s to blame for these ridiculously low gas prices?” Hello. Probably the same person who was responsible for the $3.50-plus prices (sometimes up to near $4.00) we paid from 2011 through 2014.
George W. Bush!
