Science needs support, better funding

To the editor,
Democritus (470-380 BC) taught his students that everything was made up of atoms. Eratosthenes (276-195 BC) measured the circumference of the Earth and assumed that it was not flat but a sphere. And then man was plunged into what is termed the Dark Ages. It took man some 2,000 years to regain the knowledge. People like Galileo, Dalton and Newton stood up for science.

Sabbath isn’t linked to first day of week

To the editor,
If someone were to read Revelation 1:10 in The New American Standard Bible, Reference Edition, Foundation Press publication, The Lockman Foundation, they would read, “I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet.”

E-cigarette is small but tempting

To the editor,
We know that teachers are used to dealing with disruptions in the classroom on a daily basis. Things like passing notes, using cell phones, talking out of turn etc. Unfortunately now, there is an additional burden for teachers to carry, and it’s because of a new e-cigarette product called JUUL.

A week after Republicans in the state Legislature voted to gut the public records law in 2015, members of the Assembly sought to quell backlash over the plan.

Ban weapons made for war

To the editor,
(This letter is in response to the letter from Michael Buchek in the Oct. 22 Walworth County Sunday.)

After World War II, the Army’s research found that the chief predictor of casualties was the number of shots fired in a short period of time. The military asked arms manufacturers to develop a lightweight weapon with a large detachable magazine that could be used to inflict extreme damage. The AR-15 became the military’s standard-issue weapon. Weapons similar to the AR-15 are available to any citizen along with magazines that carry up to 100 rounds.

A maximum wage makes sense

To the editor,
Over a half-century ago I was a teenager and the minimum wage was 90 cents an hour. It has been raised dozens of times since then, and every time all other wages were raised across the board. Of course, the cost of living raised every time as well.
