We're fortunate to have such dedicated employees at LRGH

To The Daily Sun,

I recently spent six days as a patient at Lakes Region General Hospital. My wife (Dawn) and I would like to thank the staff for the excellent quality of care give to me during that time. All of the employees — from the E.R. to Short Observation, S.S.U., Dietary, Respiratory, Housekeeping and Radiology Departments — displayed a high level of commitment to their work.

We are very fortunate to have a fine group of dedicated employees at LRGH. Our deepest thanks to all of you.

Afraid of the 1%? There are more of us than there are of them

To The Daily Sun,

This is what presidential elections in our democracy have become.

The super wealthy are trying to rule the United States by being able to fund candidates as a result of Citizens United. These very same uber-wealthy people and their special interest groups will continue to ask for your support so that their particular candidate is voted into office. And they don't want you to know who they are and who is paying for the PACs that produce the avalanche of ads.

Why is this so important to remember when you go to vote? It's simple really. They are referred to as the 1 percent for a reason. There are more of us than there are of them. This country still has a system of one person one vote, although Republican legislatures and governors are doing all they can to suppress the vote of American citizens.

If the middle and lower classes realized just how much power we have to get rid of special interest groups through our vote this country would truly be a fairer one. This also applies to every level of government.

Please keep this in mind when you vote for congressional candidates who are trying to win you over. Especially those candidates who continue to believe that that Citizens United shouldn't be abolished.
