Letter: Pick your battles

Mary Bardin writes:
I agree with James Roberts. I think this decision was out of respect for someone who served our county. There are much more for our county to worry about. I don't see any of the people that are nagging say anything about the homeless children or the fact that Adair County has such a high number of child abuse cases that go unnoticed, nor the amount of drugs brought into this county. Yes James the flag at half mast has been done for our local celebrities out of respect.

I see a lot of good changes being made for our county. Let's focus on real issues and concerns. As the saying goes, "Pick your battles." This issue is not one of them.
