Page 2 Wednesday, December 26, 2012 The Adams .County Record Where is the outrage? Dear Editor, Well, the CEO of the NRA has finally comment- ed on the latest killing of school children. Everyone is to blame but the NRA, and he rejected any sug- gestion of control of any weapons designed to kill. An interesting omis- sion in his statement was there was no mention of having each child carry a weapon to school for pro- tection. He did suggest a police officer should be assigned to each school. I feel this is not enougK If you will not arm each child, at least you should have an armed policeman in each class to protect them. Each of these school police should be required to have a psychic evaluation before assignment and annual or semi annual evaluation to insure they do not become a gun tooting crazy. Questions for each read- er: What do the NRA, gun makers and sellers value most, the lives of children or profit? Are politicians more concerned about the lives of children, or politi- cal contributions from the NRA? How many NRA members have a need for an assault weapon? As a non-hunter I do not have much expertise, but does it really take an assault rifle and 25 rounds for a Council hunter to kill one deer or elk? Questions for the com- munity: Where is the cry of outrage from "right to lifers;' the churches, and the citizens of Council over the killing of school children? Where. is the outrage and action from our elected Idaho officials and the police? How will they protect our 1st grad- ers from a crazy walking into a Council schoolroom with an assault weapon and killing dozens? Gun advocates constant- ly .cite "the right to bear arms" in the constitution. Do you think the found- ing fathers would have put some limitations on this right, if assault weapons had been used to kill their own children? Our society is becoming more violent; you cannot see a movm, TV show or read a book without blood and guts spilling out over you. Guns are being glori- fied and viewed as objects designed to solve problems. Well we do have a problem of overpopulation, and I suppose killing children is a solution not much worse then Jonathan Swift's '~ Modest Pr oposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People From Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick" (1729). f ed L. 7-a,r, r Dear Editor, On behalf of the Council Senior Center, I would like to express our appreciation for the money the City of Council donated to the center from the sale Of the HUD house.

We appreciate received for the 12 days your donation so much. of Christmas. It was Thank you for your such a thoughtful thing consideration. to do and really gave my Audette Russell Corrections & Clarifications In last week's front page report on the December 17 Adams County Commissioner meeting, we said: "The regional weed control group submitted a request for $47,000 for their work in the county in 2013. Dave Klaw stressed that those funds are not spent by the county weed group, but are routed through Adams County control." Dave Klaw actually stressed the opposite, stating that those funds ($46,000 not $47,000) ARE for the Adams CWMA, ADMINISTERED by Adams Soil Water District, and DO NOT go to Adams County or Weed Control. The Record regrets the error. Continued from frontpage were the High School Choir members who per- formed, delivering a musi- cal mix with something for everyone. The Junior High Band followed, with only 4 members xn the band: Tyler Krueger, Kris Peterson, Andrew Scheline, an4 Courtney Stanford. They performed songs such as "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "Good King Wenceslas". It must be very difficult to find songs that use only a flute, a saxophone, and two percussionists, but Anita Dubose did very well with this small band, and they performed admirably. The High School Band was the finale of the evening, and was defi- nitely worth waiting for. The band consists of Brittany Armistead on flute, Hannah Bryson and Melyssa Goetfling on clarinets, Corbin Hedges and Konnor Ludwig on percussion instruments, Megan Perkins on alto saxophone, Tessa Shepard on tenor saxophone, and Katie Cummings on bass clarinet, as well as Breanna Pixler and Shania Spharler on trumpets, Their pas- sion for playing really comes out when this band takes the stage! Small, but mighty, they treated the crowd with several selec- tions, including "Funky Wenceslas" and "The Santa of Seville." They also played more traditional songs, including "Silver Bells" and "The Little Drummer Boy." The concert was a great way to kick off the last week before Christmas. The members of the bands and choir were very enter- taining and provided everyone with a nice dose of Christmas cheer. Corrections & Clarifications The beautiful picture Of a rainbow over'Meadows Valley on page 13 .last week (Dec. 19 issue) was mistakenly attributed to Linnea Hall. It was actually taken by Erin' Rohlman from her house south of New Meadows. The Record regrets the mistake. 7 RIVERS COMMISSION Check our website for details on upcoming sales.
