Letters to the Editor for Jan. 28, 2011


Praying for healing
To the editor:
Since the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion in the United States, more than 50 million lives have been lost due to abortion. We pray and solicit prayers for those approximately 3,000 helpless people whose lives will be snatched from the womb each day, and we commit them to God’s grace.

We also encourage prayer for those who have been involved in the taking of an unborn life — mothers, fathers, and those involved in performing the procedures. Pray for healing of emotional and physical scars, for God’s grace and forgiveness, and for a change of attitude for those who support and are involved in abortion — from politicians to practitioners.

We confess that we are a sinful nation to allow such atrocities, often for the sake of convenience, and we pray that justice will soon reign for all, including the unborn.

John and Susie Busch

Street work harder to pay for now

To the editor:

In response to the Baker City Herald editorial board on Jan. 24 regarding the neglect of 10th Street.

Two decades ago when Main Street was rebuilt the construction started at South Bridge and Elm and extended to Pocahontas Road.

It was paid for by “partnering” with the state and the adjoining property owners were responsible for the L.I.D. (Local Improvement District) in the amount, on our part, of $40.63 per lineal foot.

We also had to pay for the drives and aprons. On North 10th Street the grade was lowered, widened and curbed.

In 1984 we still had our mill and logging industry to support this expense.

The timber receipts also helped support the schools and roads.
