Make a difference in a child’s life this Christmas
Editor: “Tis the season to be jolly.”
I know it is not Thanksgiving and here we go talking about Christmas, but Lodi Adopt a Child has over 750 underprivileged children on our list.
To make a bright and merry Christmas for our kids requires time and help. You can help by “adopting” one of these children for Christmas. Buy for these children what you would give your own child. They all need new warm clothing and a toy.
You can pick up an Angel Card which provides the name, gender, sizes and something a child has asked of Santa. Angel cards can be picked up at 100 E. Pine St. beginning on Saturday, Nov. 17 and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and then daily from 1 to 6 p.m. We ask you to return your unwrapped gifts by Nov. 30. If you have any questions or need Angel Cards delivered to you, feel free to call our office at 333-1056 or my cell phone at 327-0494 and leave a message.
Please take the time and effort to help make this a memorable Christmas for our kids. On behalf of the Board of Directors of Lodi Adopt a Child, we wish you a Christmas and New Year’s filled with peace, joy, good health, and prosperity.

Get used to Trump’s ways
Editor: It’s over — Thank the Lord. I find it somewhat gratifying that “our girl on the hill” Nancy Pelosi didn’t get the “wave” that she hoped for. If the wave had crashed all over President Trump — vis a vis his agenda — Pelosi would have been all over President Trump like slime on catfish.
But, as it turned-out; it didn’t work. However, I really do think that reasonable Dems are beginning to understand that they are dealing with a man who, more than anything else, likes to get the job done.
The facts speak for themselves, and that’s why most Americans recognize that President Trump works every day for those of us who believe that work is the foundation of a society that can not be broken.
All of the DC bureaucrats are going to have to make a new plan; and they are all pounding their heads against the wall, praying that President Trump will just get letup a little. Sorry, there is no let-up, and if the Dems don’t come to terms with reality, then they will all be left in a world of hurt beyond anything ever imagined — believe It! STAN TAVES Lodi
Response to abortion letter
Editor: Regarding Lange Winkler’s statement in the News-Sentinel. Oct. 3, that abortion has freed women. One can ask the question: has abortion really freed women or has it allowed men to use women and abuse them and avoid responsibility? Has it truly freed women? Or has it come with a price? Sadly, some women have paid, at the cost of their own lives.
Has it allowed women to move on with their lives? Or is it always on their conscience and deep in their heart, that nagging truth that they took the life of their child and fills them with deep regret, shame, worthlessness, guilt, and sadness. Could this possibly confirm the study, that those who have abortions have an 81 percent increase in mental health issues, PTSD, and other accompanying destructive behaviors, including suicide.
It would seem that interrupting pregnancy is going against nature and the natural conclusion of pregnancy, which will always have consequences. Of course there can always be complications during pregnancy, but due to the nature of the abortion procedures, there is a myriad of things that could go horribly wrong, including; perforation of the uterus, hemorrhaging, cardiac arrest, endotoxic sock, major intended surgery, infection resulting in hospitalization, convulsion, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, cervical laceration, uterine rupture, and death.
As to the claim that children become wards of the state-at present, there are 40 couples who wait for every baby available for adoption, including children of all races and those with special needs.

The healing begins
Editor: The election is over and now the real battle will start. No matter who won or lost, it will create more hate among Americans. Democrats have to be smart and honest and wise to clean the mess and hate created by Republican Party and their leadership during the last two years.
I think one man and party rule is over. People take a breath. The rest of the job will be done in 2020. I request to fellow Americans to love each other. I know it takes time to heal — the country has been divided and Americans hate each other. Outside, we have a couple of friends and the rest of the world hate us because we bring unrest into their lives. Our foreign policy needs to be flexible for all, but sorry to write and say, it is not. We are just protecting a of friends.
I request to the my Americans to love each other. I know it takes time to heal and be careful in the future and think before casting a vote. I congratulate all fellow Democrats on this success and especially of Lodi for their hard work on this success. MUSHTAQ A TAHIRKHELI Lodi
