Support group can help cope with brain injuries
I would like to thank the Post for running the article about the upcoming brain injury support group meeting in Friday’s edition of the paper. The meeting will be held on Feb. 26 at the main headquarters of the Rowan Public Library, 201 W. Fisher St., Salisbury. The meeting will be in the Hurley Room from 7-8:30 p.m.
As a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor of almost 32 years, I have been trying for more than a year to find out if there was any type of support group or groups for traumatic brain injury in Rowan County. As I sought information last year, one phone call led to another. I was given the name of Jane Jackman at the Arc of Rowan to call. I did meet with Jane and she thought this was a wonderful idea.
We have been meeting since November and are still in the organizational phase.
Anyone wanting to know more about traumatic or acquired brain injury please feel free to attend and share your ideas.

Wise up, people!
Those of you that have ever witnessed a tantrum thrown by a left-wing, bleeding heart, liberal zealot any time you question the integrity of anything they are doing or of anyone in their circle know that it is worse than anything a recalcitrant child can dish up.
Thank you, Mike Safrit (Jan. 30 letter) óyou summed up how conservatives are feeling about this past election and its outcome. Racism had nothing to do with how I voted. I cast a conscious, educated, informed vote based on facts instead of emotion. The only ones I’ve heard mention racism being a factor are the liberals. Throughout the entire 2008 presidential campaign it was the liberal media screaming that only racism could keep Barack Hussein Obama from being elected. Would they have said that if Republicans Michael Steele, Ken Blackwell or Condoleeza Rice had run for president? No, they would have accused the Republican party of playing the race card.
I didn’t vote for Barack Obama because that would have been a vote for socialism and socialistic medicine, full-term, partial-birth abortion and a spending plan that is not in the best interest of the blue collar/working class, taxpaying citizen. President Obama is saying that his so-called stimulus plan is too big to fail. The builders of the Titanic also said that it was unsinkable.
Let’s ring the phones off the hook and burn up the e-mail in-boxes of our senators and let them know how we feel every time they do something on Capitol Hill we don’t agree with. It’s our job to hold these government officials accountable. The future of America and its children depends upon it.
