Haleyville, Ala.

We want to tell all of you who live in Haleyville what a wonderful Halloween we had this year.
This was our 41st year giving out candy to trick-or-treaters on 11th Avenue.
We have never had anything damaged or missing in all of these years.
It was a blessing to talk to the kids of yesterday; then seeing their children of today. Their children were so nice and kind. Dads and mothers, you are doing a great job.
We love you all. We have been so blessed to know you all.

I enjoy reading newspapers and  watching many news channels on TV.
There is a thing I have discovered. Most, almost all, news channels are biased, too personalized on one side of the spectrum or the other - Democrat or Republican.
The news readers, or so-called news reporters, don’t just report the news, they personalize it. It is more commentary than just reporting.
Many news channels make a very good living disparaging some leaders of America. They are not only disparaging, but are cruel and disrespectful of our highest office in America.
We are all different. We all have our favorites. We try to respectfully work through that. To have the privilege some reporters have to be able to speak to America and then say some things that are absolutely untrue. Most of them know it is not true and that happens on both sides of the parties. It is a sorrow.
Some news stations do very little but  incite and work people up. They give them what they want to hear, excite them and they will keep coming back. Dig, dig for more dirt like in the scandal sheets. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. “Sue us. This is tabloid news.” They are free to do tabloid. It is sad they report tabloid as true news. Probably most who watch and listen believe every word they hear.
All the above is also true for the internet.
I do so admire the late Walter Cronkite who simply reported the news. He never commented on the news, even the day President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed. Mr. Cronkite upon hearing the president was deceased bravely swallowed the lump in his throat and said, “President Kennedy has been shot and has died some 30 minutes ago, at 2:00 Eastern Standard time.” To the best of my memory, that was near his words.
And I’m sure at the end of his newscast, he uttered his famous words, “And that’s the way it is.” Then I believe he gave the date and signed off.
