Letter to the Editor: Looking for infomration on an old truck

Dear Waukon Residents,
I am looking for historical information on my 1967 Ford F-350 truck with 240 I6 manual transmission. I have been told the box was custom made in Waukon and the box has the original maker plate on the side. I am just the second owner and it only has 19,986 miles on it. If anyone has any information and would like to share, please email me at mekcbs54@gmail.com. I can also email you pictures.
Thank you.

Letter to the Editor: We need an honest, sincere leader

To the Editor:
I guess we will all agree that we are, as a country, in a pretty serious mess - cops and law officers being vilified and even murdered, and some of our top government people even seem to promote it. Jackson and Sharpton, both so-called ministers and each have love children, have become very rich by promoting unrest and distrust, and both are big liberals. Question: how can any right-thinking person agree with them?
We are now in the process of deciding who will be our next president - can anyone lead us back? We need an honest, sincere leader, like Moses who led the Jews out Egypt. As honest as Moses was, he still had his trouble makers.
Before we can become the nation we used to be, respected all over the world, we need to become a moral people who hold the Ten Commandments and the Bible in high esteem. Our crime rate must decrease, illegal drugs must be condemned.

Letter to the Editor: Support for "Black Lives Matter"

To the Editor:
“Black Lives Matter” just means that the lives of African Americans matter. That’s all. It doesn’t mean that other lives don’t matter. Or that other people matter less. It also doesn’t mean that black people are more morally superior than other people. Black Lives Matter provides the reminder that black lives matter, too. It can be dangerous to be black. An African American is killed every 28 hours by police. About 27% of African Americans live below the poverty line. Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless than white families. African Americans are four times more likely to be murdered than the national average. The statistics go on and on. But the stats also have names: Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, LaTanya Haggerty, etc. These lives matter.
