    Letter: Thankful for VA care

    There has been so much negative on the VA that I would like to share some positive on them. My husband, Dwane Kern, has been in the VA program for a number of years and has never had a problem with them.

    The Zimmer family wishes to thank all the people who sent condolence cards and who attended the celebration of life on July 19 for my wife, Virginia.

    Letter: Kindness

    Can humans just be kind? I'm thinking of injustices of the past, present and maybe extending into the future. Can we just be kind instead of killing wolves, being unkind to Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, to the immigrants, and saying hurtful things about Israelis and Palestinians as well as other nations? ...

    Letter: Guns on campus

    Regarding Chris Bolton's letter (July 18), Bolton's assessment of BSU educators as "dumb" - because they oppose concealed carry on campus - is impolite and wrong. Their arguments make obvious their unspoken stance on the broader Second Amendment issue.
