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.
