Kudos to Wolfe City, Commerce firefighters

COMMERCE — To the editor:     

I just wanted to properly thank the Wolfe City firefighters who brought two trucks and the Commerce firefighters as well for coming so quickly to put out our structure fire. Although it was full of treasures and necessities both, these men prevented our house and barn and second shop from burning. They came quickly enough and they worked very hard.

These words are not enough; every time we look at what’s left, we know we owe a debt of gratitude for what didn’t burn. Many thanks from Kevin, Carol, Heather, Aimee and Hemingway (the chocolate lab who helped you guys that day!)

  • More people to thank for Author's Park

    To the editor:
    This photo was one of four that appeared in the June 7 issue of the Commerce Journal.
    There are several people who help with this project that never get a thank-you, and I would like to point them out to the city and citizens of Commerce, Texas.

  • Adoption, spaying/neutering answers to overcrowding of no-kill shelters

    To the editor:
    Weekly I walk several municipal shelters to pull animals that are up for euthanasia. This is a hard job to do, but the rewards are great. Animal Control provides a wonderful service to the community by keeping our streets free of roaming animals. Sad to say there are more animals than space available, so animals have to be put to sleep.

  • Cost to build trails is the question

    To the editor:

    I just read Opinion/ Guess Viewpoint  of Joe Johnson (BIKER) in Caddo Mills enjoyment of the trails in Florida and Missouri. I have heard that he is a nice guy and grew up around the local area and I respect his opinion. Nothing in his opinion explained how these trails were built and paid for.  So here is my opinion. If someone would research the total cost it took to build this enjoyment using Our taxpayers money it would be in the the millions of dollars level, I am sure.
