Letters to the editor – Tuesday (9-9-2014)
I have two issues to address.
No. 1: I have called the people in charge of roads in Rowan County. They must be very busy because they have not returned my call. It’s only been a month. Perhaps they are checking Barber Junction Road in Cleveland. So far, I’ve had a blowout, and a neighbor has messed up her front-wheel drive.
No. 2: I’m sure we are all tired of hearing about the border problems — drugs, smuggling, our border patrol officers putting their lives on the line every day. I have a solution. Make Mexico our 51st state. Send in the National Guard, clear out the cartels, teach English. They manufacture all kinds of products — cars, trucks, clothes, etc. They can pay taxes. That way people can stay where they are, get all the liberal free stuff and not have to travel back and forth.

My blond male lab ran into the woods on Aug. 15. He never came back out. We searched the woods many times. We put up fliers. I told all the neighbors. I told all my friends. Days passed; my dog was gone.
My friend Donald told me to put a lost dog ad in the Salisbury Post. I had not thought of that.
My lost ad came out in the Post on Friday, Aug. 22. That night a lady called and said, “We have your dog.” I said, “This is amazing!” I picked him up Saturday morning.
Thank you, Crystal Goodman, for reading the Salisbury Post and calling to tell me you had my dog, Lingle. Thank you, John Goodman, for going deep into the woods to check out the whining noise you heard, finding my dog lost and scared and bringing him to your home. We were searching the wrong woods.
A very special thank you to a beautiful 11-year-old girl, Kennedy Goodman. She took wonderful care of my dog. She played with him every day and gave him a blanket to lie on. I know Lingle fell in love with Kennedy.
Thank you, Goodman Family. Thank you, Salisbury Post. Your lost section is working. Lingle is home.

I want to thank the Salisbury Post for the police report, letting us know who does what. The police have a hard time; they never know whom they are pulling over. They work with a lot of scumbags.
The Post disappoints me by putting an article in the paper about the two lesbians (which I did not read). God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
