Letters to the editor for Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014

Thank you Guy Farmer

Thank you, Guy W. Farmer, for your commentary in the Sunday paper. This was the first time that I have seen a factual report about the Ferguson situation.

There is a principle which is guaranteed to keep a person in everlasting ignorance. That principle is contempt prior to investigation. Al Sharpton just exemplifies that ignorance.

I believe that a racist is someone who uses an unfortunate situation like this to stir up hate and discontent, and that is exactly what Sharpton did. The thing that embarrassed me most was when Harry Reid jumped in right behind him from Washington.

I have three family members in law enforcement. They told me that if a grand jury could not indict, no one could because the defendant cannot defend himself or even have his attorney present. No one to say “I object” or “inadmissible” or any defense.

One black hoodlum robs a store and assaults a police officer and Mr. Obama sends three of his representatives to the funeral.

Mr. Farmer, thank you for being the only media representative I have seen to put out a non-racist and non-biased report.

Needs a service dog

My name is Pari Hendricks. I suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression, dyslexia and high blood pressure. In the past I have suffered a heart attack and bells palsey.

I have been looking into getting a service dog for more than a year now, and it has been challenging. I have letters from my doctors stating that I need one. I found a breeder in Pennsylvania, who has the puppy that would be perfect for me. These dogs are pure breeds, come from champion blood lines. the cost is, $600 for the dog and $350 for shipping. I found a service dog trainer who is willing to help me, as training a service dog is very expensive. Because of my medical conditions, the mental health clinic and the trainer are willing to help with the cost of training the dog.

I am unable to work. I am on medication to deal with my anxiety, PTSD and blood pressure. I live alone, so it is very scary for me, I mainly isolate myself in my home. I have friends who try and get me out and go for walks. I have a fear of being outside by myself or in public places. Having a service dog will help improve a quality of life that I have been missing for many years. For all those who will help me, I am forever grateful, and God bless all of you.
