Letters on one-car crashes, Israel, Angel Tree help

One-car crashes

The number of vehicles that have had a head-on collisions or hit a tree by losing control has shown up too often in newspapers lately (news stories, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday). I wonder how many vehicles involved in these types of crashes are using positive traction drive at the time the accident occurred.

If both rear wheels spin it takes only an instant for the vehicle to slip sideways and that makes the driver lose control of their vehicle. Drivers need to be more aware of traction control in their vehicles. Losing control happens so fast that you don't have enough time to react. This same thing happened to me, however, it was without the traffic or the tree.

Occupied territories

In regard to a letter in Sunday's paper, I am continually astonished at the ignorance of people who write and claim they know history and want to enlighten the rest of us.

First of all, Israel is not in a 50-year occupation of Gaza and the West Bank. It is their land. God gave it to them thousands of years ago. The land belongs to God's people, the Jews. They lost it about 70 A.D. but God promised they would regain it and Jesus would return and set up his kingdom there.

Also, there are no Palestinian people. They are just refugees from Egypt and other countries who came into the land to live. It was never their land. They are squatters as far as truth is concerned.

We need to support Israel with everything we have. God told Israel, "I will bless them who bless you and curse them who curse you." I want God's blessing on our country. I had rather our tax dollars go to Israel than to the Middle East countries who hate us and Israel. I praise God we have a president who is willing to keep his campaign promises and support Israel.

Unlike Mr. King, I cannot depend on the News-Journal printing my letter because it does not go along with their liberal agenda. However, regardless if you print it or not, it is God's word, it is not my interpretation, it will come to pass just like he said it would.

Angel Tree help

It is with a grateful heart that we send a special thank you for the years of dedication to host the annual Kick Off Breakfast on Thanksgiving morning for Havertys/Newgate Angel Tree. Jimmy and Karen Dunn are devoted to the success of the event and have graciously hosted the event in their home for many years.

The love and service and giving of the Dunns allows people an opportunity to adopt an angel or financially support the Angel Tree. This has always been a highlight of our event each and every year. Our Angel Tree is blessed to have these two people that are so giving of themselves. Thank you to both of them!

Jerry Gardner, Longview
