Request for recognition of blood donors          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

I am a very curious person and am always asking questions just like a little child asks his mama. I am from Jacksonville, Ill., and enjoy reading the Journal Courier either online or at my mother's.

Just like the Lincoln papers, it is very informative, but the Lincoln papers lack one thing that the Journal Courier does.

Whenever there is a local blood drive, I'm not sure who is responsible for the input, but the names of the donors are published as a way of saying thank you to these people. That's the way I look at it.

[to top of second column in this letter]

I think our local paper should do the same so these donors can be recognized for their efforts. That is my opinion anyway. If nothing ever comes of this, at least I will have my say and feel better in the long run.
