Sheriff has this reader's support

This letter is in defense of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and in response to Shari Mellin’s letter (The Goshen News, May 8) about Sheriff Brad Rogers not obeying the laws related to anti-gun legislation. By the way, the law referred to in the letter is not law yet and prayerfully never will be. Please know it would behoove anyone to know the sheriff personally and who he is attempting to protect in many ways.

There are many sheriffs in this country who are unwilling to allow the Constitution to be ripped apart by politicians and to be altered to their personal advantage. Background checks have been in existence for many years. We know what the term “extensions” will lead to. Criminals, by the way, don’t get their guns legally through checks, so even the existing laws don’t keep guns out of their hands. I fully support Sheriff Rogers in his decision.

— Jerry A. Myers

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
