It does not add up

Dear Editor,
Upon reading the article of Mr. Klosterman’s resignation in the newspaper dated 11/4/2017 (Saturday) I was anesthetized by the remark, “I’ve seen a drastic change in our school district in the last year and a half and I fully trust that the board and administration will keep going in the right direction”
I am wondering what that comment really means. I attend most school board meetings and I have not seen anything but personnel change and school board member’s change. Does that constitute “drastic” change as being one of a positive and productive climate or one of looking back at old times of Mexia “Good old days”?

Where is the compassion and integrity

Dear Editor,
I work in the property preservation field performing repairs, maintenance, etc. on foreclosures. I recently received an assignment in Thornton. On arrival, I found cats inside and outside the home. The real estate agent assigned to the property had not addressed it two weeks earlier when he had been there and now I am here.

Elderly needs to travel, too

Dear Editor,
I would like to address a problem we have concerning the elderly and disabled here in Mexia.
The transit is great for taking people to places in our area. I understand they go as far as Waco, but we have many people who need to go to Dallas or Fort Worth. Many elderly and disabled do not have family or friends who can take them. Many people can’t drive in Dallas. I just feel like this problem needs to be addressed.
Perhaps a group could get together and come up with a solution to this problem.
Thank you for allowing me to address this problem.
Mrs. Joan Killingsworth

Preliminary budget set

Dear Editor,
I have prepared a preliminary budget for filing for the 2017-2018 fiscal year, which will be filed Monday morning.  We have cut the budget for the past several years, out of necessity.  But, also out of necessity, we have a number of needs in the county which must be met.  We have put off any new vehicles for the sheriff’s office for the past two years, and cannot afford to put this off again, which would lead to less reliable vehicles, and increasing repair bills.  We have equipment needs at road and bridge which will pay for themselves in the long term, but we need to make the investment now to keep up with needed maintenance of our county roads.  We have an older courthouse which is in need of certain repairs.  We also face increasing challenges from increased state mandates and decreased state funding, all of which put more pressure on local property taxes.

United States leadership needed for peace

Dear Editor:
There are more than 200 nations in our world and wars between and within nations are always raging. A more peaceful world could be developed if alliances of nations that share core values would take unified action to promote peace. The. United States should be a leader in this endeavor and they would be more influential from a position of strength. Therefore, the United States should continue to develop superior intelligence services and superior military forces.
Cooperating nations that are committed to influencing the people of the world to live at peace could use advanced communications technologies to provide reliable information to people of many languages. Unified diplomatic efforts for peace would be more effective if nations worked together.

Thank you Mexia

Dear Editor,
I would like to take the time and thank all those who voted in the recent City election in District 3. I realize that I did not win the election alone, but by your support. Finally, I pledge to continue to service the residents of Mexia to the best of my ability. Thank you.

Hendricks returns to Mexia after 45 years

Dear Editor,
I thought this is a bit of news. After 45 years coaching girl’s volleyball and track at the same school at Johnson Junior High in Channelview, Linda Hendrick is returning to Mexia. She is a 1968 graduate of Mexia High School.
She is the daughter of the late Luther and myself, Mildred. I am only 86 years old.
