Disaster response and support appreciated

Dear Editor:

We at Logan County ESDA would like to take this opportunity to thank the many disaster workers who helped in various ways by responding to our most recent locally declared tornado disaster of May 30. The special efforts of the responders during that night, including the various weather spotters, fire, EMS and law enforcement agencies who collaborated on the impacted area's safety needs, were greatly appreciated.

Thank you to the long-term debris management workers from IDOT, IDOC, IEMA, Lincoln Rural Explorers, YMCA, Job Corps, Lincoln FS, Lincoln Ag Center, Logan County Highway, city of Mount Pulaski, city of Lincoln and to all who heard the page and called the office or showed up. Thank you to the American Red Cross and the many grocery stores and restaurants in Lincoln and Logan County who donated food or had it sent out to the impacted area. Thank you to the farming community for the great network you have in helping one another. A special thank you for those of you who stayed at home and prayed for the victims that had been impacted.


[to top of second column in this letter]

We also send a special thanks to the many elected officials who offered their support, especially to Dale Voyles, Dick Logan and Rep. Mitchell, who walked beside us through the whole process.

We at Logan County are no strangers to emergencies or disaster, and our response will continue to be the same, as we know your continued help will only be a request away.

Yours truly,

Dan Fulscher

Sesquicentennial article 'thumbs up'

To the editor:

I would like to commend your publication for its wonderful article writing and its support and concern for the upcoming sesquicentennial celebration. It's odd how I can read an article that you have published and feel comfortable and pleased about the accuracy of the material and its presentation, but then when I pick up a local newspaper and read news about the same subject and circumstances, I am disgusted with what I've read. I really enjoy your articles and your methods of writing. 

Unfortunately not all news is going to be good, and I don't believe in sugarcoating it if it's not. I do, however, believe that we should focus on finding the positive side of events such Lincoln's sesquicentennial and find ways of overcoming negative issues that arise.


[to top of second column in this letter]

Somehow when all you can read in the news is about all the problems and lack of cooperation, it can cause a person to loose the drive that they started out with on such a project like the celebration.

Please keep up the wonderful support of our community and its activities. I know it makes me feel better each time I can read an accurate follow-up of current happenings.
