Golf just not up to par

Hurrah to the councillor for Meadows/Waverly. The cost of the Wheat City Golf Course has always been too much. If council kept up with the times, it would realize that golf is on a steady decline. Thousands of courses across North America have closed. For the moment soccer is king — golf is out.

Thanks for your help

I would like to thank all the kind people who came to my rescue when I fell on the crosswalk on Victoria Avenue East on July 26. The couple who helped me up and the two gentlemen who saw me to my residence at Lions Manor and the person who assisted me right to my door — you are all guardian angels and I thank you sincerely. Also, sorry for the holdup of motorists both directions. Thank you and God bless.

Some good news for a change

Thank you very much to the Brandon Sun for the lovely article on Eid and how Muslims are celebrating that religious holiday — probably their biggest of the year. How nice it is to see some good news about Muslims when there is so much negative media coverage over the world in this time of strife. It is really nice to see something positive.

Why are Muslims singled out?

I was very upset to pick up the Brandon Sun on July 29 and read the headlines, “Feast Fit For ‘Joyous Day’” and “The Sun Wishes Our Muslim Readers ‘Eid Mubarak.’” Is this still Canada? How come these Muslims rate such publicity? Those of the Jewish and the Catholic faith each have their religious holidays but they don’t publicize them so much. Also, all the Protestant congregations have their holy times, too. These people of the Muslim faith do not recognize our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and come from eastern countries where such atrocities are taking place. Yes, I agree these people have a right to freedom here, but we are still Canadians and they should respect that. I still think of the old adage, “one bad apple spoils the barrel.”

Take your purse with you while you shop

I just want to say to the people who have their purses stolen many times — you will leave them in a shopping cart while you are down the aisle looking at stuff, so what do you expect? Think about that a little bit more.

Return of camera appreciated

A thank you to the person who returned my camera to the Brandon Regional Health Authority. It was very much appreciated. It has some very important pictures on there of my mother. Thank you so much.
