Avoid outrageous criticism

From page A8 | April 07, 2014 |

I read Kelvin Wade’s column, “The Other Side” (“Be the voice for abused children,” March 27). I have sympathy for the baby, the baby’s mother and Joshua Cooper. When a child is injured or killed, we all feel the pain.

When the baby’s aunt told me what happened to her nephew, I went into my house, closed the door and began to call on Jesus, not knowing the baby’s mother or father at that time – the same baby that I wanted to give a baby shower. Joshua was 10 when I met him at church. Joshua’s mother brought Joshua to church every Sunday. He is not a monster; he’s confused. This is not the time to criticize, it is time to pray.

God give us peace and understanding in time of trouble.

I also read Mr. Will Turner’s letter (“Politeness goes a long way,” March 27). Mr. Turner sure has bragging rights – support his family, a big home, living in Cordelia, but what accomplishment has he made to the community and Fairfield? Willie Turner sounds like one of Mr. Charlie boys, as my dad would say.

I know Councilwoman Pam Bertani. I also worked with Pam. I have known Mayor Harry Price for more than 30 years. He taught my children. He help saved my grandson’s life. Supervisor Jim Spering’s daughterr invited my daughter Vivian over to a slumber party. As kids they went to the same private school.

Who Mr. Turner votes for is his business, but depriving an African-American woman of honest community services, should be everybody’s business.

I thank Councilman John Mraz for his accomplishments, dedicating his money and time working in my community, and Councilwoman Catherine Moy for working with me as the Tri-City NAACP treasurer.

Will Turner knows ranchers, farmers and business people. Would he like to know children who went to school hungry?

I want my 40 acres and a mule.

    Why would you want 40 acres and a mule, Minnie? You are still a slave... and willingly so. The Civil War wasn't about ending slavery... it was about increasing the plantation. Most all of us are now slaves, Minnie. 40 acres and a mule represents allodially owned property and the means to make it a profitable enterprise. We don't have these today; don't pay your property taxes and government takes back its land... and Obama said that if you've created a successful business that you didn't really do so... it was the government, he said, that allowed you to be successful. See Minnie, you are still a slave... so said the taxman and the President. You don't yet deserve 40 acres and a mule until you stop being a slave.

    I thought Minnie was going to show up her from time to time? . I'd like forty $million and a pool.

    "depriving an African-American woman of honest community services" ... where/who is being deprived?

    I honestly have no idea what this black woman is harping and carping about! Is the much maligned Mr. Turner one of the enigmatic ''good old boys'' that Ms. Noble keeps writing about? This is a very poorly written letter that doesn't really explain who, what, when and why! Somehow, I get the impression Ms. Noble is not happy with somebody who has a dollar more then she does! I suspect Ms. Noble is just another afro-centric racist and communist / socialist. I want to live in Mayberry RFD and not Mogadishu Somalia!
