Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor, It all started on a Tuesday with a high fever and then dry, hacking cough. The next day I was tested, and several days later found out I was positive for COVID-19. During the next week of stay-at-home/quarantine, the cough, fever and los...

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor, I take serious offense to the Glasgow Courier November 4, 2020 headline “Community Hopes For Change After KKK Costume.” Really? The Courier seems anxious for a comment from somebody so let me give them one. And for clarity, let me...

 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Silence is complicity, so I cannot morally stay silent in regards to what Luke Morehouse refers to as an “innocent” costume he wore on Halloween night. It’s incomprehensible that a 36-year-old man would actually believe that most w...

Letters to the Editor

Circle Diamond Cowboys

According to an old ballad, “Saturday night” was the loneliest night of the week.” Not so for the Circle Diamond cowboys. After their once-a-week bath, either in a creek during the heat of summer days or with a tub full of water heated on the...
