I just wanted to say that Mr. Goodnight is a good and honest guy who has given 100 percent to this community with a smart mind and a good attitude, even while being attacked again and again in this paper. Enough is enough.



    Well, it seems to me like we have city and county commissioners, when it comes to the wastewater treatment plant, that can do whatever it is they want to do, irregardless of what the public wants. Well, people remember, you're the ones that put them in office. You're the ones that can get rid of them.

    I want to thank Meals on Wheels, all the volunteers, all the people who prepare, Amy and others that just make it just such a special meal for we seniors. They're sure appreciated and valued very much. May God bless each and every one of you, and our delivery people too.

    I'd just like to comment on that Third Street sidewalk right there. Looks like you put a street instead of a sidewalk, wasting taxpayers’ money.

    I grew up in south Dodge and was led to believe by north Dodge people that their poop did not stink. So why are they concerned about a sewer plant up there? Was I lied to?

    Regarding the comments in the Oct. 23 Globe Exchange, I wonder if any of these negative-thinking people have ever run for public office or any position of responsibility. In Cimarron, we have a particular group of coffee drinkers known as the C.A.V.E. Committee, meaning Citizens Against Virtually Everything. They seem to have all the answers, yet you never see them running for any leadership roles. It looks to me like it’s the same in Dodge City. In fact, it looks like Dodge City could have the national headquarters for a C.A.V.E. convention.

    In the Oct. 25 paper, I read about the predicted influx of crime from the casino development. Before we start preparing for the worst, maybe should wait and see how the casino actually affects the court system. Maybe the negativity and fear-mongering about the casino will turn out to be unjustified. By the way, my record is clear. Not even a parking or speeding violation for the last 35 years, and I'm a gambler.

    In regard to the announcement on the front page of the Friday, Oct. 24, Globe that stated “Fighting graffiti is everyone's responsibility,” I resent being told that it’s my job to be the cleanup crew for a bunch of gangbangers' artwork. Since we have identified 563 local gang members in our community, how about hauling some of these 300 listed on the National Crime Information Center's database out of bed early some morning and handing them a paint brush? My job is keeping my property looking good, not mopping up after gang members.

    Saturday's paper, election '08 candidate endorsements, the Globe abstaining from the time-honored tradition. With recent political cartoons run against McCain/Palin, the Globe has already made such an endorsement.

    We are facing one of the most important elections in our country's history. I'm really not pleased with either candidate, but I'm concerned about the direction our nation is going. I'm concerned about our morals and our values because they are spiraling downward. We don't need more liberalism. Our country is in so much trouble.
    The media is part of the problem. They're so one-sided it's awful.
    I hate the mudslinging and the backbiting.We honestly need someone who is willing to protect Social Security, and someone who is willing to stand up for what is right in this country. We need to vote smart.

    Why don't businesses move downtown? This would be a good start to utilize downtown Dodge City. Thank you.

    What you have to understand here is that the majority of our commissioners care not what Dodge City citizens think or want. They feel they know better than all of us constituents and they are going to fulfill their agenda, despite overwhelming public opposition.
    They'll tell you this plant is not like the one out south. They'll tell you that technology has changed. They'll even tell you this new plant will smell like roses. What they won’t tell you is that they are acting on the wishes of their constituents, because that would be a lie they couldn't sell. Ahhh, the arrogance, can you smell it?
