Actions speak louder than words

When the average person is confused, how can they teach the children who are growing up in a society that has a lack of the Bible guidelines? Leaders of all types have an influence on the children of the world. The future generation of this United States depends on how our children learn basic values pointed out in God’s word. This society has to live up to those guidelines in order for our children to become better citizens and future leaders.

It’s time for parents and leaders of all types to follow God’s guidelines and for government officials to understand what today’s citizens need and want.  The officials should accommodate the majority, not a specified few.

Average people need to know all the facts during the officials’ time in office before elections and have more information as to who is standing up for the majority of the voters’ wishes and rights. It’s time to put steadfast politics aside and for the news commentators to be non-biased.

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
