Downtown work a waste with freeway

I lived in two towns that put a bypass freeway in and then spent money upgrading downtown.

What a waste of money. Once the freeway is in people drive straight through and in this area they will go to Reno. The only reason they will stop here if they are interested in seeing things or visiting someone, which will not be a lot of people.

Our leaders need to realize that we have no money for things like this. We voted on downtown in the election and it didn’t pass. If things like this happen, we should vote them out of office.

Homosexuality is morally wrong

George J. Gosselin’s letter on Christmas, forming a Gay-Straight Alliance Club will give children the message that “gay is OK” when, in fact, it is not.

Homosexual and lesbian conduct is not moral behavior, per God Who created all life! Were it acceptable, God would not have destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone nor would He have issued the Ten Commandments (not suggestions) including the Sixth, which covers this immorality! I guess Gosselin never studied world history!

One thing he should have learned as a child is that if one does something wrong, one is going to be held accountable for it, i.e. a murderer is prosecuted for the crime because it is morally wrong to kill someone as is a thief for stealing what is not his or hers! And, since mankind learns much from example, it is morally wrong to set bad example for anyone, especially children.

Even Christ taught that to set bad example it would be better to have a mill stone tied around one’s neck and to be cast into the sea because one will be held accountable before God! As for the argument that one is born as homosexual or lesbian. Not so. Behavior is a “choice” just as killing is a choice and stealing is a choice, among other morally wrong examples of behavior.

Gosselin would be wise to consider these facts rather than to exploit behavior that would result in another Sodom and Gomorrah event in the United States.
