Letters to the editor – Saturday (7-19-08)
I don’t know angels’ names, but they were a godsend
On Monday, July 7, I was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a semi tractor-trailer on Mooresville Road at Sherrill’s Ford Road. I was unable to open my driver’s door after the impact, and two kind gentlemen came to assist me.
I would like to thank them and all the others who came to my rescue. The gentlemen involved know who they are, although I do not. I would also like to thank Pastor Randy Addison and the other members of Trinity Wesleyan Church for their assistance and prayers during my recovery period. I suffered multiple contusions to my chest, knee and arm, and it is a very slow recovery process. I would appreciate it if the gentlemen who assisted me would give me a call at 704-633-7275. I would really like to get to know them.
Once again, thank you to everyone who helped. The EMS workers, firefighters and police did an excellent job, and I thank all of them, too.

Insights on several matters
1. With all apologies to Ron Gallagher, you hit a home run with your Sunday “Insight” section ó the editorials, letters, etc. ó especially the articles on the oped page. And ANY Sunday morning that you have a piece by Chris Verner is a special day … keeps me laughing!
2. Recycling in Rockwell: I live in Rockwell, and the instructions the lady (who wrote complaining) received are certainly different from the ones that I got from Crash Morrison. Mine were very simple and said nothing about removing labels, and I think it’s wonderful that Rockwell’s residents participate! The Earth is God’s gift to us, and we all should do a better job of taking care of it! I challenge every church in the county to get their congregations behind recycling.
3. OK, the price of a barrel of oil has fallen for the last three days (below $130 Thursday afternoon); why have all the service stations failed to immediately lower their prices, since they immediatly raise them when they are going up? Just wondering.
4. The two letters to the editor Wednesday that (again) tried to enlighten other letter writers that, yes, indeed, the intent of the founding fathers WAS to separate church and state, and to save us from zealots of any ilk, Christian, Muslim or otherwise who try to make us think and worship as they do because their way is the only “right” (no pun intended) way, were spot on.
