Letters to the Editor

Murder Victim’s Nephew Weighs In On Death Penalty
 
Editor:
  What I did not say in my previous post to you, because I did not think it pertinent to the discussion, was that I had an uncle that was murdered. His big mistake was stopping at a liquor store to purchase a bottle of wine at the inauspicious moment of a robbery. Can’t have any witnesses now, can we? I’m not trying to equate my uncle’s demise with that of Ms. Kelle’s little brother, but I do think we both have a lot more in common than would first appear.
   In my family’s case, we are still living with the inabilities of the system, because the perpetrators were never identified, arrested, or prosecuted. We can only hope that whoever they were, they were dealt the street justice they deserved.

Paper Or Plastic? Make Mine Paper, Please

Karen Roskilly and I usually have the same conversation every time I go to the store. Karen, who is one of my favorite grocery clerks will always ask “paper or plastic,” to which I usually reply, “neither, there are far too many bags at home and in the landfill as it is.” We both usually chuckle, I leave and then she goes on to her next customer.
  In those times when a bag is necessary for groceries I will always choose paper. There are too damned many plastic bags. They are everywhere. They are in my yard, wrapped around my trees at work, stuck in the shrubbery and blowing down the highway. I shudder to think what it must be like to live within a four block radius of Wal-Mart.

Bad News...Light The Paper On Fire, If It’s Good News Listen To The Crickets Chirp

The staff and management of the FJN take pride in this paper being the second largest paid circulated non-daily newspaper in the state of Nebraska, second only to the Ogallala Keith County News. 
 They say when you’re number two you try harder. Whether true or not our staff goes to great lengths to monitor trends in news rack and over the counter sales. Annual subscriptions generally always stay about the same. Its the rack sales that show us what makes a paper sell, what is going on when we sell the most copies, that sort of thing.
