LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
No need for speed
I travel to and from work on one of Butler County’s busiest stretches of road, Route 8. Driving to work, my doctor’s office or other necessities requires me to use this bustling highway at least five times a week.

Can’t argue with that
Over the long haul, writing political letters can be a humbling experience. One is foolish to expect plaudits in the aftermath of writing researched letters, but only harsh retaliation. Its purpose is legitimate debate, gathering facts to support one’s case.

I was reading in the Butler Eagle about the Bridge crossing Route 422 at Lions Road. They could build a road past the fire hall and connect it to the 422 bypass, which is only about one eighth of a mile away. The fire vehicles could go east or west on 422 or faster than going over a bridge and getting onto New Castle Street. The bridge could remain open for pedestrians walking to the mall.

Losing faith in Obama, most of government
When presidents become unpopular, they are no longer welcome on the campaign trail. They’re trapped in Washington, watching their party abandon them. It happened to Lyndon B. Johnson, whose presidency collapsed amid protests over Vietnam. He left Washington only to visit his Texas ranch and assorted military bases, where he gave patriotic speeches to silent battalions.

Klain is no ‘czar’ to deal with Ebola crisis
WASHINGTON — The other day the receptionist at my local neighborhood hospital where I had gone for magnetic imagery handed me a sheet and asked me to sign, not an unusual occurrence in an age where before we can be treated we must attest to our understanding of a variety of policies and pledges.
