Letters to the editor: Take actions on post office; Hard work made a difference

TAKE ACTION ON POST OFFICE
To the editor:

The mayor and the Tonganoxie City Council along with many residents have already made it clear to the U.S. Postal Service that their chosen site for our new post office at the corner of Laming Road and Woodfield Drive is unacceptable.

Yet the postal service has turned a deaf ear to these protests.

I encourage all residents to not only write to the postal service and express their objections, but to also contact U.S. Sens. Sam Brownback and Pat Robertson, Congressmen Jim Ryun and Dennis Moore, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and anyone else they can think of who might have the influence needed to help bring this issue to an acceptable conclusion.

Karen Kellogg,
Tonganoxie.

HARD WORK MADE A DIFFERENCE

To the editor:

I went to Unified School District 464 from K-12. I was called everything from cry baby to nerd, among other crude things.

I never had an issue with the school system providing protection and access to education. I was deeply disappointed to hear "Jury awards $250,000 to former student."

I was not the brightest student in my class, but I was co-valedictorian. I attribute this to hard work.

And, giving back more then you take. The advice in my valedictorian speech was to use common sense and common courtesy.

I just wanted to show my support to the Unified School District 464 system and to the current students.

Laura McLaughlin,
Riley, Kan.
Tonganoxie High School Class of 1989.
