Quit smoking

TO THE EDITOR: My friends, I am writing to let you know about smoking.

There should be a law passed where no one can smoke because it really is bad for your health. This is why I put all my smokes in the garbage, then my lighters and my ashtrays, on Christmas Day.

I hope and pray to our Lord that a law will be passed and there will be no more smoking anywhere.

God bless you all, and God bless America.

Letter writer

TO THE EDITOR: Reading the Editorial page, I came across the letter from Robert Armstrong.

In it, he thanks Leo, Nick and Clyde for their help in adding to the 47 percent. Now, these are just assumptions on my part, but Leo must be Mr. Seney, Tom’s last name I don’t recall, Clyde is Mr. Rabideau, and Nick is Nick Masters.

Nick Masters and I served together in the US Air Force. Little did we know it at the time, but his oldest and my youngest would enter into a relationship.

Nick served his country with honor and pride, a true conservative who was not afraid to express his views to any and all who would listen. He would express these views in this forum and others.

After retirement, Nick dedicated much of his time to the sheltered animals of the North Country. He was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather.

Well, here’s an update for you, Mr. Armstrong. Nick was diagnosed with brain cancer this past fall; a tumor was removed from his brain the size of a baseball. He was given 12 to 18 months to live. As you can imagine, this devastated his family.

God must have needed a good conservative. Nick was called to God Oct. 19, 2012. 

Did you mean this Nick, Mr. Armstrong? If you did, I think you owe his widow, children and grandchildren an apology. Do not speak ill of the dead.
