MERIDIAN — An open letter

to Rev. Jennings

    I have read several letters you have written to this newspaper concerning the children of this area and I too am very concerned with not only the Christian children, but the Christian adults as well.

    I did not watch the Democratic Convention held recently in Charlotte, N.C., but as a Christian I was very upset to hear that our Lord and Savior, God, was booed by the attendees and, to add insult to injury, the Muslims were allowed to have the prayer.

    It appears to me our God is no longer a part of the Democratic Party, but it appears that the spiritual adviser for the party is none other than Mohammed (Allah).

    As a Christian, I feel that these two events above should upset you as a reverend, as well as the Christian children and Christian adults in your church, and I feel sure the entire readership of this newspaper would be very interested in reading your comments on the event which happened in Charlotte, N.C., recently.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Jim Knowles

Consider industrial

park for sports complex

    Dear sir,

    I attended the public hearing that discussed the need for an updated sports complex for our city and county. I agree that this is a much needed facility and would be an asset to our area.

    I would like for serious consideration be given to the ill-fated "Loblolly" site near the Northeast Industrial Park as a location for this complex. Some would argue that this is industrial land, but I believe that recreation is an industry.

It does not appear that any "smokestack" business intends to locate on this site any time soon.

    The land is level and near the Highway 45 bypass. And if we do get lucky enough to attract some tenant to the site, how difficult would it be to convert flatland sports fields to a building site?

    And we have industrial land in the area near Handy Hardware, the land along the parkway to nowhere, and the newly available land at Key Field for industry to consider.

    Thanks for taking the time to consider this idea. Best wishes to those who attempt to improve our area with this much needed project.
