Letters to the editor

Dear Editor,

First off, my apologies to those who attempted to watch the 9/11 Conference panel discussion that I said would appear on C-SPAN Saturday, Aug. 5. I was clearly mistaken; it was broadcast a week earlier.

Keep an eye out, though, as it may air again.

Now for something you can access immediately. All you need is a computer. No need for high speed; dial-up will work just fine.

In an hour audio interview (kpfa.org) with BYU Physics Professor Steven Jones on scientific proof, in layman’s terms, of a controlled demolition of the World Trade Center towers and Building #7.

Dr. Jones pleads with all Americans to look at the evidence “which is overwhelming” and says that to refuse to do so is “contrary to logic, to science, to reason, to humanity.”

Dear Editor,

I have to admit that the new trail across the river has greatly improved my wildlife viewing. The animals I used to watch through binoculars at a great distance are now in my front yard. I’ve seen the biggest bucks I’ve ever seen in velvet. These are the wise old ones that are rarely seen even from a distance, wandering nervously around my front yard. Yesterday my downstream neighbor called excitedly, wanting my help in identifying a large black weasel-like critter his dogs had just chased out of their back yard.

Today, this mink took up residence in my front yard. I’ve been keeping my dogs inside and watching his playful antics chasing the trout in my pond. I’ve never had the opportunity to watch them so close up and didn’t realize what great swimmers they are. While I really enjoy all my new company, I can’t help but wonder where they used to live.

Dear Editor,

I want to say thank you to April E. Clark for mentioning such an honorable person. The article you wrote about Trey Holt was amazing. (Post Independent Aug. 3) It’s a good feeling to know such a great man will be there for you in your darkest hour.

I have been to four beautiful services there that will never be forgotten due to his loyalty for others. It takes a special person to make that horrible situation better for the families and friends, you are our community’s special someone.

I hope everyone will come together in November and vote to re-elect Trey Holt as coroner and show him our appreciation to the dedication he has had for us.
