Letters to the editor – 090521

Chase concerns My concern is the high-speed chases through residential neighborhoods by Border Patrol agents, police department, state troopers and sheriff’s deputies. I live on the north side of Uvalde close to railroad tracks, and I understand the need to capture the illegal immigrants for the community’s safety, but my concern is our children.

City of Uvalde has loose rules for loose dogs

This past Tuesday evening after dinner, I set out for an evening walk with my dogs. At the end of my block, two big dogs came barreling towards us. I started yelling “No!” immediately.

Pastor’s column: Gruben: Humble will be exalted

We live in a time when it seems as though many, if not most, people are angry or at least frustrated a lot. We seem to be short with people and are judgmental of others. Grace and mercy are things that we want for ourselves but do not like to give to others. We seem to hold ourselves in very […]
