Kiss and make up

We thought that the management issues of the Nelson Heights Community Center had been solved last week. We commended the commissioners' actions on their decision to have the Recreation Department facilitate the center.

This facility, in our opinion, should fall under the direction and guidance of the Newton County Recreation Department - we said that last week and we maintain our position.

Forgive me for asking

Drop in the bucket

Dear Editor: Sometime in the near future, if you have not already seen one, you'll soon see a shriner with a bucket at an intersection taking up money for the shriners' hospitals and burn institutes. Please drop a donation in the bucket because this is the way that shriners collect money to help support the 22 shrine-hospitals and the three burn institutes for crippled children.

Since 1922, when the first shriners' hospital was built, more than $2.5 billion dollars has been spent building and operating shriner hospitals for cripple children. For a child who is under the age ...
