Proud of our flag

To the editor:

My heart skipped a beat,

So I sat down with pen,

"Thanks for flying our flag

On page one, LDN."

--Maxine Seggelke

(Note: This poetic message, sent to the Lincoln Daily News on July 5, refers to the waving flag in the July 4 issue.)


Officer appreciates cooperation with community policing efforts


To the editor:

I would like to thank the Lincoln Daily News for doing a fantastic job in informing the public about the Lincoln Police Departments Community Policing / Crime Prevention efforts within the City of Lincoln. I enjoy working with the citizens of Lincoln, from the seniors to the young children. I feel that if the children can learn just one thing by interacting with our seniors it will make them a better person as they become our leaders. I encourage everyone in Lincoln to take a vested interest in their neighborhood and assist the Lincoln Police Department in continuing to make Lincoln a excellent place to raise our children. I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the National Night Out August the 8, 2000, it could never have happened, if it were not for your corporation. You are excellent representatives of Lincoln, IL. Keep up the good work.

Wanted to see pictures of Grand Champion cattle, 4-H sale


To the editor:

You have a good thing going - definitely better the (the other un-named news source in town) - but I am disappointed in you Fair review - pictures, etc. What about pictures of Grand Champion cattle (steers and breeding stock) in 4-H and Grand Champion Steers and breeding stock in open class, and the 4-H sale on Sunday along with pictures? So, along with the (other un-named news source) you still have a long way to go to meet the public needs and what they want to see and hear about. These 4-H kids spend lots of time and money to present their projects and need to be recognized by our local news media.
