LETTERS FOR JUNE 18, 2014: America’s freedom is a gift from God


— Ken Blinco


Our safety is tied to Second Amendment

The second largest city in Iraqi, Mosul, has been captured by ISIS, an al-Qaeda group. The Iraqi government has now authorized the citizens of those cities and of Baghdad to have guns to protect themselves and to fight the al-Qaeda. They do not have a Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that permits them to have guns.

For those in our country who do not like our Second Amendment and believe they will be more secure if guns are taken away from our citizens, let them move to Mexico (a “gun-free zone”) where their citizens are not permitted to own guns. In Mexico, only the army, the police and the members of the drug cartels have guns and the result of that law leaves their citizens in danger from the criminal cartels who rule parts of Mexico.

Let’s preserve our Second Amendment and our safety.

— Keith Snelson

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
