Tired of reading about Obamacare

Re: Dislike of Obama

 

Obamacare.

I am so tired of hearing about this on the news. It’s gotten old.

What I would like to hear or read is a list of names who wrote that mess and any others who were in on it.

I don’t like President Obama, but that’s beside the point. By knowing the ones who wrote that mess up, we’ll know who not to vote for next time. Why not make it public for the good of the people?

Keep Sheridan water clean

Re: Fluoride

 

Clean Water Sheridan is a growing grassroots organization dedicated to educating the citizens of Sheridan and surrounding communities about water fluoridation.

We believe that the scheme to add fluorosilicic acid to our public drinking water should be reconsidered and stopped. The most recent issue of “The Lancet: Neurology” (March 2014) has identified fluoride as a neurotoxicant and calls it a “brain drain” chemical, causing IQ deficits in children. This and other scientific findings cause us to question the wisdom of adding this substance to our water supply, where it will be consumed by all residents with no regard to age, pre-existing conditions or excessive exposure.

On April 19, we will be sharing information about fluoridation with the community through video and speaker presentations. This information will address the susceptible subgroups of the population identified by the National Research Council in 2006 as being disproportionately harmed by fluoridation. This day is not intended to be a debate, but simply to share information. All members of the community are invited to attend. Invitations have been sent to all Sheridan City Council members.

Our event will be held Saturday, April 19, at the Downtown Sheridan Association building located at 121 S. Main St. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This will be the first of our informational presentations, and we hope to see many members of the community there.

Where are the turkeys?

Re: Local wild game

 

Can anyone explain what has happened to our wild turkeys in and around the Sheridan area? It seems that they have disappeared over the last two years, which coincides with the state’s and county’s widespread spray program to prevent the spread of the West Nile virus in livestock.
