Organizations have been very generous


Recently it was my pleasure to represent Oasis Shelter Home at two presentations of gifts for the House.

First with the Curry County Cruisers. They presented checks to a number of local charities. The second was from Salmon Run golf course.

Both organizations have been very generous to us in the past, as well.

We really appreciate their care and concern. Our deepest heartfelt thanks to them for their generosity.

Pilot's policy on denigrating words?


Once upon a time the Pilot had a policy regarding letters denigrating our elected officials: They were not published.

Apparently this policy either did not exist, no longer exists, or Mr. West (Pilot, Oct. 22) managed to circumvent it.

To call our president a murderer and a war criminal is really blatant, and in some countries, doing so would be considered treasonable behavior. Fortunately for Mr. West, our Constitution allows us the freedom to speak our minds. Whether or not Mr. West should have done so in this manner is problematical, however!
