My name is Donna, and I’m writing this letter to let everyone know how much Tony, my husband, and I appreciated everything that was done for us. On Feb. 26, Farmers National Bank, Perryville branch, sponsored a benefit auction for me to help with medical bills and such. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. It has truly been a blessing to know how many people care about us. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard before and during the benefit and for their donations.

Dear Editor, Roger D. Bowman says President Bush has lied to us. President Bush has not lied to us. Bowman says President Bush has attacked our civil liberties. President Bush has not. Bowman cannot point to one civil liberty he has lost due to anything President Bush has done. Bowman says President Bush has assaulted our Constitution. President Bush has done nothing of the kind. Seems to me that President Bush and Vice-President Cheney are about the only people in Washington who care about our Constitution.

" One of few country stores in this area, Bottom's Store sells a lot of dog and cat food, and snacks, soft drinks and sandwiches when farmers drop by, Juanita said.
