on your one-year anniversary. Since my family and I moved to
Colorado Jan. 2, we have kept up on Lincoln news through your
publication. It is very well-written, very user-friendly and gives
us a taste of home.
course, I especially like all the positive articles on the local
schools. Anything about Washington-Monroe will always be dear to
my heart. Keep up the praise for all the kids in "your"
happy anniversary! We will continue to view your publication.
would like to thank the men who contacted us regarding our lost
dog, Lexie. Lexie was found in Lawndale because of your calls. She
was tired from her two-day adventure, but unharmed. I enjoy
knowing there are caring "dog lovers" in our community.

would like to wish your newspaper a happy anniversary. Hope you
have many more to come.
was saddened to see the Scully Building burned. This was one of my
favorite buildings. The popcorn shop was the only place to go to
get a good bag of popcorn. The pet shop was where our dog Dusty
got all his toys to play with while we were in town for the
Lincoln Art and Balloon Fest. These stores and the building will
be missed. Hopefully the stores can be relocated, as they are my
favorite stops in downtown Lincoln.

to you and the rest of LDN staff, I can say (for myself) that this
has been a very informative year for those who surf to LDN. Seeing
the good things you have done, the articles you print and not
being afraid to print letters from those who wish to express their
opinion, I, for one — and I know there are many more — wish
you continuing success into this age of cyberspace news.
Up-to-date reporting and a fair and balanced attitude with no bias
means so much these days. People may disagree on numerous
subjects, but that does not mean hate is intended, nor does it
mean we can't love our neighbor....

so much for picking up my story about the adoption of Iris.
I feel it is important to get positive stories in the media about
animal adoptions. There are far too many animals waiting for
homes they may never get.

system lets us 'vote the rascals out'
support electing Logan County Board members at large — our
present system — over the proposed system of electing members
from districts. We believe changing to the district system would
promote and foster non-accountability by allowing elected
officials to vote and act on issues vital to the interest of the
public, yet be subject only to the voters in their own districts
and not to the rest of the registered voters in Logan County.
the present system of electing county board members at large, all
of the registered voters of Logan County have the right and
opportunity to vote the rascals out if the elected officials do
not perform to our standards. Under the proposed district system,
your vote, along with the vast majority of the other registered
voters of Logan County, would be denied, because we would only be
allowed to vote for or against a candidate from our district.
