Letters: Great proof of evolution — sort of

Great proof of evolutionó sort of
Evidence of evolution in our modern world: First, let us assume (pure logic) that Alley Oop and Oolah rode about on the dinosaur (leaping lizard). Nowadays, we have empirical confirmation that this great lizard has evolved into the numerous varieties such as the SUV shows. It is everywhere and has become the prevalent and preferred horse and chariot of everyone and his brother.
There you have it, folks ó the mechanical reproduction of the original megasaur, scientific and technological proof of the great, grant concept of evolution.
I recommend the GMC Buick. Get one before they become extinct!

Where’s Whitey?
After all the stress and serious thought we have been through lately with electing a president, I thought it would be nice to lighten up a little and relax.
Where’s Whitey Harwood hiding now? I always looked forward to reading his letters to the editor to see what ol’ Whitey was giving us his thoughts on.
I did look forward to reading his letters.
Has anyone seen Whitey?

A boy’s broken heart
I am writing to let whoever hit my dog know that my little boy saw out black cocker spaniel get run ove by your vehicle on Nov. 7 on North Main Street, going toward Spencer.You didn’t even have enough respect to stop. He loved this dog so much. It was heartbreaking to see this happen and no one stopped to say, “I am sorry.”
Cars just kept passing by. But there was this very nice man who stopped traffic and got my dog out of the road.
She died instantly.
I am an animal lover. For someone not to stop and say I am sorry, it makes me ill. Some people have no respect for animals.
This dog loved my little boy so much. She followed him everywhere he went.
