Job well done

To the Editor:

Maybe some of us were hoping that Ted would come back to pick up the reins at The Observer once again, but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen.

He must have a run a good ship because of what has happened since he left.

The paper has come out as usual. News is being reported up-to-date.

Stories and advertising are on pages where they are supposed to be. The press runs off the efforts of the staff in timely fashion, and the newspapers appear on our porches just like always.

This could only happen with trained personnel knowing their job and doing it even under adverse conditions.

Life appears to go on as before because training and arrangements were made in advance and each employee allowed to do his or her job.

It’s unfortunate that Ted resigned as editor at the end of September.

Congratulations to the Observer staff on a job well done during the interim.

Very trainable dog 

To the Editor:

This letter is in response to Superintendent Larry Glaze’s decision to remove a highly trained pit bull from local elementary schools due to the stigma associated with the breed.

For more than 100 years, the pit bull was known in America and many other nations as the “Nanny Dog” for no other dog was as reliable or safe around children as the lovable, block-headed, broad-shouldered breed. It was only in recent times that dogs lumped into the “pit bull” category have become the latest “dangerous” dog.

I contend, through personal experience with pit bulls and the study of breed statistics available online, that a dog is only as dangerous as the way it was raised. I hope everyone will consider the Bully breed as an excellent addition to any family home if you are looking for a lovable, high energy and very trainable dog.
