EVENT WAS A SUCCESS
Now that the “Heaven is For Real” event is concluded, we at Good Hope Lutheran Church in Arlington want to express our appreciation to all of those who helped make the evening possible.
Some very generous sponsors stepped forward to help with funding and we were further helped in this endeavor by a host of good people around the community. We especially lift up the staff of the University of Findlay for their cooperation.
Had the event produced a profit, we intended to split it among Habitat for Humanity, Lutheran Social Services, and the Christian Clearing House.
The good news is we broke even!
The bad news is we did not make a profit, and, so, instead of giving money to these agencies, we can only remind you of the good work they do, and urge your support of them.

NEWSPAPER’S VIEW NO SURPRISE
We are so sorry that (Ed) FitzGerald and (Dave) Peppers cannot chew gum and drive at the same time.
Like The Courier’s View “Distracted” (Viewpoint, Aug. 21) really gives a tinker’s damn about the Democratic Party.
Pepper’s mistake is he is a Democrat, pure and simple. If the truth be known, The Courier would much prefer he had not paid his parking tickets.
On the other hand, were he a Republican writing rubber checks, he just might get a wing in a museum somewhere.
As for FitzGerald, he would have a better chance in a circular firing squad than getting elected governor against old morning hair.

STOP DREAMING ABOUT LOW PRICES
It is unbelievable to me that The Courier wastes its time and space printing Arlene Scoby’s letters complaining about high prices at gas stations and dry cleaners. Really?
When you request a rush on service at any place of business, of course you have to pay for that request.
The Courier should reserve a section of the paper and title it “Stupid Whiny Complaints”!
Arlene needs to close her eyes and dream of how low prices were back in the ’60s, since she obviously can’t get out of that mindset.
Enough is enough!

WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR PRIDE?
If one has followed the news the last few years, there has been an “epidemic” of vehicle recalls in the USA.
U.S. brands and “foreign” brands and “foreign” brands made in the USA have been included.
Why?
Don’t companies have pride in their product anymore? Is there too much emphasis on profit, not pride and safety?
As I talk to family and friends, almost all say they are treated worse than they were years ago. This is in almost all occupations.
