Well wishes and prayers

I want to wish Judge Harold Kennedy the best and ask our readers to join me in a prayer for his recovery from cancer.

Harold has been undergoing both radiation and chemotherapy for head and neck cancer and despite this grueling treatment seems to have a very upbeat attitude.

I wish him a very speedy recovery.

Don’t mention the word candidate to me!

It would not be a good week to use the word political candidate to me ... nope it wouldn’t.

You would think that people running for public office, who depend on the public to get them elected, would be doing hoops trying to get their names in the paper.

Apparently some don’t see it that way. You will not believe how hard some of them are to find. I’m still looking for several.

And, for those I finally tracked down, it is equally hard for me to believe that it took several phone calls and e-mails to get a response.

I finally gave up and used what I had so we could at least get some of the candidates information out to voters.

I’m not going to name names. But I can say this, I know who I’d vote for based on the response that I got from the candidates.

If some of them are this hard to track down when they are seeking office, just think of how much fun they are going to be when they are elected to office.

Some politicians just can’t seem to get it through their heads that they work for the people. Which, in my book, means they should provide a decent resume in order to get the job or keep it.

I wish someone would clue them in.
