Fair Association’s help greatly appreciated
I have lived in Richfield, in Stanly County, for 52 of my 62 years. My reason for writing is that I would like to recognize the Rowan County Fair Association ó especially Don Kiker and Johnny Love for what this organization does.
I was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in January 2009. I had no insurance and didn’t know what I was going to do. I prayed and prayed to God that he would get me through this. In February, I was put on total disability and started chemo and radiation at the same time. In June, the MRIs and CAT scans showed a 60 percent reduction. Praise God!
I went back for follow-up MRIs and CAT scans Sept. 15, and the cancer is back and has spread into my liver and kidney and a small cell on the brain. I started chemo and radiation again ó no insurance.
Again, I just hope that when you see anyone with the Rowan County Fair Association you will thank them for me for the donation they gave me. No one knows what that meant to me. It sure helped with my medicine.
Keep me in your prayers. I know I will be all right, either way, for you see I have a home in heaven. I am a winner either way. What a blessing.

Why is Beck bad?
In response to Awni Sammakia’s Sept. 26 letter, ‘Why Beck is bad’:
Please elaborate on the lies that you have accused Glenn Beck of telling, and provide us with proof that they are lies. What exactly are the divisive racial issues he has been spreading?
Let us know what methods you used that enabled you to come to the conclusion that most of Mr. Beck’s listeners are uninformed. Lastly, what are the unfounded, blatant lies that he has been accusing the president of? Please substantiate your facts, just as you have asked Mr. Beck to do. Making accusations is easy. Supporting those accusations with actual facts is essential in order to prove a point. I’m sure you would agree.
We all want to know the truth and we want what is good for America in general, and what is best for our republic.
