Page 2 Wednesday, April 4, 2012 What's good for the goose... Dear Editor, Since our Idaho Republican representa- tives deem it proper to tell Idaho women what they must do with their reproductive process, (Ultrasound program) I think it only proper that the men of our State should be entitled to equal regulation. I sug- gest the following as minimums: 1. Require men to con- suit with sex therapist before purchasing Viagra or similar products, 2. Require a consulta- tion with a Priest before purchasing condoms. 3. Require a man and woman to attend a reproductive class before having sex. The purpose of the classes is to make participants aware of the long-term social and financial results of sex. The above suggestions for addition to our State laws are only fair. Women who voted for the Republicans are get- ting what they wanted. We men should have equal treatment under the law now, not have to wait until our represen- tatives need a new elec- tion ploy. fT.d "7-r r,r The wealthy should pay Social Security tax too Dear Editor, I don't have much luck getting my letters published. Our Social Security tax is not fair. Social Security taxes are deducted from annual salaries up to $106,800. Presently any earning beyond that amount are not subject to this tax. Needless to say, our President, Congress, etc. are not going to raise that ceiling. If the work- ing class citizens of this country can send their sons and daughters to war and die for this great country, then those mak- ing more $106,800.00 should pay more. To make things fair, there should not be a cap on the amount. odma g. Barr Dear Editor, Stop the Lunacy. Join with qqae 2012 Luna Recall Committee and use to help us remove Mr. Luna from office. If we can make www.recall- go viral with Facebook, twitter, and YouTube by 4-7-2012, we can continue a strong recall campaign against Mr. Luna. Nancy Berto, the feisty grandmoth- er who started the first Luna recall, strongly sup- ports the 2012 recall. While passing the Recall Luna three referendums is a key part of fixing Idaho education ...... is not enough. We also must recall Tom Luna. Even if all three of the referen- dums pass on November 6, 2012, there is nothing to stop Mr. Luna from introducing the same (or very similar) bills in January of 2013. Mr. Luna has proven himself to be too arrogant and disconnected to respect the wishes of the major- ity of Idaho's students, parents, and teachers. It frightens us to imagine how much damage he could do to Idaho educa- tion in the three more years he has in office. We need the 2 R's (referen, dums and recall) to fix the problem. I'm asking people to help spread the word. It would also be a huge help to make www. go viral, with facebook, twitter, and YouTube. Ca/.p,z'y, Ma,,,a.r, 7",6 .70J2 l_ze,,Ta ,f'e_ea// Okamoto for Sheriff Dear Editor, Walter Okamoto's campaign for Sheriff gives the people of Adams County the opportunity to elect a great leader. Walter sup- ports and understands the needs of the people and the County. He is a man with 42 years of law enforcement experi- ence, 10 years of which, before his retirement in 2008, were in Adams County, dedicated to the safety and protection of those he has served. Working the rural areas of the county allowed him to better understand the needs of the busi- nesses, the schools and the people. As a 25-year Washington State Patrol Officer and long time friend of Walter and his wife Angle, I fully sup- port Walter Okamoto as the best choice for Sheriff of Adams County. ,..

Energy Seal of McCall will be putting in new insula- tion as soon as the leaks are fixed. Arrangements have been made to start dig- ging the trenches for the lines from the biomass plant as soon as the weather cooperates. The Adams County Record As reported earlier, the sale of donated timber brought in over $32,000 for the renovation. We have since learned that Evergreen Forest Products has kicked in an addition- al $1,000 over what they paid for the logs. The group is looking for a grant writer who will donate his or her time to seek grants for the project. Anyone who is willing to do this is urged to call Mark Mahon (253-1124) or Justin Getusky (741- 9200). A levy to raise money to hire a shop instructor will be on the ballot at all the regular voting loca- tions in the Idaho Primary Election on May 15. An account has been set up for the shop proj- ect, and anyone can bring donations to Cindy Copher or Cathy Lakey at the high school. Our Ne-o, Look Continued from front page a more enjoyable read. These changes are pos- sible because we are hav- ing the paper printed by a company in Homedale that uses more advanced technology. The arrangement of the paper has also had to change (a product of the smaller page size). And some of the things you are used to finding in cer- tain places have been split apart and moved into more useful positions. For example, the Community Bulletins, in addition to the notices, calendar and menus that have been a consistent feature of the past months, has also acquired the church directory (and a little more room to spread out) placing the majority of scheduled community activities in a single loca- tion. We hope you enjoy our new look and feel as much as we do. Drop us a line and let us know what you think. Or go to our FaceBook page (The Adams County Record) and leave a comment. We'd love to hear from you.
