She loves Carbondale

Dear Editor,

I do not know Doc Philip and do not wish to.

When you talk about our town, the name is Carbondale – not Bonedale. If you want to criticize the mayor, I for one say it’s about time he asserts himself and tells off the Stepstone and Doc Philip, who I think has been drinking too much of his dandelion wine, that they do not run the town’s business or the Board of Trustees.

If you smoke marijuana on the street, then the Top Cop Gene Shilling throws your butt in jail and the Stonefaced Bob Emerson prosecutes you and Fred Williams and Mark Whalen look on and laugh.

If Bush chokes on a pretzel, let him puke and gag, I don’t care.

If you do not approve of Carbondale and the people that live here and love it, move to California. You will not be missed.

I am for us having a “big box” store like Target. The town needs the money. We can have lots of tourists. Don’t you want them to shop in the stores we have here in Carbondale, like you and Stepstone have been bitching about?

I really don’t like two-faced people.

But I love Carbondale!

Mildred Baumli
