LETTER TO THE EDITOR: GOP should give playing fair a try

There seems to be a trend among Republicans, that if they can’t win an election fairly, they will use unfair tactics in order to get their way. That was used against Nathan Vaughn, and it was used unsuccessfully against Barack Obama. Now it is even being used against one of their own. To me it seems like child’s play. Seeing how far they’ve dropped, one would think that it would be in their best interest to come up with a different strategy.
I would dare say that the way things are going, things will only get worse unless they try something else. How about playing fair?

Thanks For Helping Kitchen of Hope


I thank all churches, church volunteers, schools, business, organizations, individuals and restaurants for helping the Kitchen of Hope put food back into a lot of hungry mouths.
Your support and monetary blessing and food supply were very much appreciated. I wish I could name everyone that helped and continues to help the Kitchen of Hope. Everyone has been a blessing to the kitchen. I’ve watched a lot of hungry faces smile with love and a full stomach of good eating.
God has truly blessed the kitchen, especially with a well supported group of church volunteers taking time out to help feed the hungry. The churches are all over the Kingsport area. From the bottom of my heart, I do truly appreciate and thank everyone for the support and faithfulness to the Kitchen of Hope. God bless each and everyone of you and continue to bless.
Rev. Geraldine Swagerty
