    REMEMBERING THOSE WHO DEFENDED FREEDOM

    This Memorial Day has special significance for me.

    My father, Beale Todd of Independence, a World War II veteran, passed away in February at age 84.

    As a child I was always aware my father had been in the Navy during the war but I would be much older before mere awareness would be replaced with true appreciation.

    At age 19 he entered the Navy and served aboard a destroyer escort engaged in anti-submarine warfare in the Atlantic and anti-aircraft warfare in the Mediterranean.

    JOB FAIRS ATTRACT GOOD CANDIDATES

    I am responding to the April 18 story “Grayson’s teacher recruiting goes international.”

    First, I have to ask a few question about the information presented. Why was the school board informed of Mr. Newman’s trip to the Philippines after the fact?

    Does Mr. Newman think the problem with recruitment could possibly be the inadequate pay scale for Grayson County teachers?

    BAN WON'T ADDRESS PROBLEM

    In response to The Gazette’s Jan. 21 editorial regarding the aircraft ban ordinance, as I pointed out at numerous town meetings, an aircraft ban would only force the use of chemicals into other dispensing methods.

    The real issue, not being addressed, is the use of chemicals. Available information is not being researched. Faulty information, produced by the chemical companies, is followed as fact.

    RING OFFERS EXPLANATION OF STAFFING

    In response to recent Hotline calls regarding the number of people employed in the Grayson County Administrator’s Office and the gender of the employees, I find it necessary to offer an explanation of each employee’s responsibilities and duties.

    First of all, the number of men that report directly to the Grayson County Administrator is 21. The number of women employees is four.
