Veggie alternatives to meat aren't always best
Mr. Crowley (“Go for veggie options on July 4,” Viewpoints, July 1) seems unwilling to mention the unfortunate truth that the deadliest outbreaks of Escherichia coli have come from ... vegetables.
Festivals should be revised due to weather, health
I believe this city has a lot that needs changing.
The Peach Festival, to me, seems way out of line. Many elderly and children are seriously at risk due to the heat in the middle of July. As yet, no shut down has been implemented during the heat of the day, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. This is perhaps the most dangerous time of day for the most vulnerable of our citizens.
Over the years, many have given suggestions for making attending the festival more humane. Unfortunately, their suggestions have fallen on deaf ears.
I also believe that charging an admission fee for Weatherford residents is quite inappropriate.
Christmas on the Square planning is also ill arranged.
Instead of having it at night, in December, I believe a day Christmas event on the Square would be much healthier for our most vulnerable citizens and visitors from other areas of this county.
Whether it be hot or cold, weather planning in our town is needed for the utmost protection for our citizen’s health and welfare. I believe it should be a city liability issue.
Care about people is more important than monetary profits of those in charge or planning or organizing festival and holiday events on Weatherford’s Square.
Greed in political leadership is becoming very unpopular among this town’s taxpayers.

CNHI EDITORIAL: Seizure of AP phone records an insult to independent press

NOW HEAR THIS: ‘What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate’
This famous quote addressing communication failure is a classic line from the 1967 movie “Cool Hand Luke,” starring Paul Newman. Strother Martin, who played the role of the warden in a southern prison, would use this phrase every time he gave Luke a good whack with his baton. The concept resonated so well with moviegoers that it was voted No. 11 of the 100 all-time favorite movie quotes according to the American Film Institute.

TISCIONE: Woe for calling evil good
You don’t often see “woe” used in an article. It’s a word that has fallen out of usage in our day. But it’s a word that ought to be understood and taken seriously.

Letters to the Editor – May 15, 2013
I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to the slobs, idiots and inconsiderate people who continually decorate the beautiful Texas landscape with their trash. I guess it’s really a form of art with beer bottles and cans, boxes, plastic drink containers, food packaging and just about anything else you can think of. It just doesn’t appeal to me. Thank you.
NOW HEAR THIS: Not by the hairs of my chinny chin chin
I had never really considered this possibility, but every one of the Three Little Pigs was almost certainly a guy. I know that assumption is not particularly popular from an equal opportunity standpoint, but the fact is fairly certain. How do I know? They all three had hair on their chinny chin chins.
