I am Sorry to hear the loss of your dad. I did not know he and the others went to Selma AL. in 1965.What a great choice to make a stand in the face of the winds of the sinful world , and let the roots of strength grow deep ready for the next challenge. What a Great Man that I did not know and neither meet!! Victor E. Stikkel Class of "67"
I agree that this new sidewalk is great, and it is nice to see it already becoming so popular. And I would also like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make it possible. I should add, however, that this sidewalk does not quite connect all the way to the new Starbucks due to a small gap in front of 47-49 Church Hill Rd. Hopefully that small missing section will not be overlooked as everyone continues their great work expanding our network outward.
Rev. Sellars was an amazing man who had the ability to touch us all. When my father, Gilbert Aiken passed in July of 1985 I gave a eulogy that spoke about tending the garden of life. Rev. Sellars was able to follow with the same thought process and provided us all with the solice that we needed at the time. He will be sorely missed.
I have always enjoyed the Letters section of the Bee. Even when people offered strong political views, they were both reasoned and reasonable. Apparently, the editors no longer screen letters to keep out fringe theories. The contents of this letter are straight out of the Right Wing echo chamber. I'm surprised there isn't a quote from Q-Anon.
I know many Republicans and Democrats. I know, for a fact, that while they may disagree on the politics of its leaders, they all care deeply about America. Does the letter writer truly believe that all the activists advocating for Biden and other down-ticket Democrats are all secret Socialists? If so, it says more about the letter writer's own fearmongering than any actual truths.
