Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

As the year of 2014 draws to a close, the Women's Auxiliary to the Knox Fire Department wants to thank everyone who supported us in all of our community events throughout the year.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, hoping that 2015 will be a good year for all.

Torure, hurting, others, is a subject most of us would like to turn away from. Nevertheless, some of us (we ourselves?) find descriptions and discussions of inflicting pain interesting or even exciting.

We see it in our kids — early on. Kinds are cruel. They will hurt their siblings, playmates, pets, even their parents.

On Dec. 14, the New Salem Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary hosted its Seventh Annual Teddy Bear Tea with Mrs. Claus. Tea sandwiches, Christmas cookies, tea, and hot chocolate, all prepared by the auxiliary, were enjoyed with the 30 children and 31 adults in attendance.
