Court happenings

Dear Editor:

I promised to let the readers know what happened in court and I have been late with my letter. Sorry.

Peace Corps celebrates

Dear Editor:

On March 1st, the Peace Corps will celebrate its 45th year anniversary. Congratulations to the agency, its mission and to the people who continue to make it happen “Peace Corps Volunteers.”

Better communication

To the Editor:

Switzerland County has needlessly lost another piece of its architectural heritage with the demolition of the sheriff’s office. Am I pleased that the stone jail structure was kept? Absolutely. But had the two-story attached brick office building outlived its usefulness? I don’t think so.

Military recruitment

To the Editor:

I am writing to voice my concern about military recruiting in our public schools. While I support the troops and the rights of a volunteer military, I do not support institutionalizing involuntary recruitment practices. The No Child Left Behind Legislation automatically gives the military the right to take any students’ private information without any form of parental permission or notification.

New adventures

To the Editor:

(Editor’s Note: Following is a letter Lucille Weales of Vevay received from her former neighbors, Chris and Tina Fuller, from their new home in Alaska.)

New enterprise

To the Editor:

Wanted: People to invest their time and energy starting a local, lower power FM radio station, dedicated to questioning authority. “Talk and listen radio.”

Gas war

To the Editor:

Throughout the last two weeks I have noticed gas going down every other day or so in different areas. In Madison, just 20 minutes away, it is now $2.14 a gallon. But yet every day ours in Vevay stays the same, about $2.50 a gallon. I can’t seem to understand this. But yet one place in Vevay, Vevay SuperValu, it is $2.28 a gallon. How can one place be one price in the same town and other places be almost 25 cents difference? That is sad to me.

Greetings from Iraq

To The Editor:

Well we have finally settled in at our new home. Kirkuk, Iraq is where we are stationed, that’s about 60 miles from Iran and 200 miles from Turkey. The city of Kirkuk is just outside the gates.

Nurse-Managed Clinic

To The Editor:

The United Fund of Switzerland County has provided the Switzerland County Nurse-Managed Clinic with a grant of $9,000 to help expand services that we are able to provide for our patients from the county.

Immaterial

Dear Editor:

It is immaterial to me whether you print this letter or not. I read the Reveille about twice a year and it is unlikely I’ll ever know what you choose to do with it, or what your readers’ response is if you do publish it. the letter is short enough and sufficiently concise that I do wish to stipulate that you print it verbatim if you print it at all.
