It saddens me that when I read our Richmond County Daily Journal, I have a problem with you not giving more information of families that have passed away.
Not long ago, I had a friend from back in school that I had not seen in many years. Her father has passed away and by the Daily Journal not listing the family members anymore (unless the family pays for this to be published), it was weeks later that I found out about the death. I would like to know if the Richmond County Daily Journal requests payment for all the religious letters that are written to the Editor?
I feel if they were being charged for this service we might get to read something interesting. I am a Christian, believe in God, and read my King James Version of the Bible. It irritates me to purchase the paper and have these kinds of articles in the Editor’s column almost everyday.
It’s nice to read letters of appreciation for someone like the one from Pam Dillman. It is such a shame that there are not others that could find some things better to write about, instead of trying to argue about religion. Anyone that reads the paper will notice it is the same ones writing weekly. It would be nice if they would give each other their email address and keep in touch that way. It’s like children with drama; they should grow up and let it go. I suggest each one finds a Church of your choice and go to where you can receive a blessing. It’s all right to voice your opinion, but say what you have to say and drop it. Move on to something else.
I hope that the Richmond County Daily Journal would consider printing additional information once again when there is a death. This is our only local paper for our town and it would be nice to be able to pay respect to friends during their time of loss.
