Letters to the Editor
There is a great amount of planning and hard work involved in a home football game. I am extremely grateful for all the help we received for last Friday's Polk vs Bradley game. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the following people who are invaluable in the planning process: Ron German, Revonda Howard, Peanut Askew, Bruce Underwood, Derrick Davis and the entire coaching staff, Randy Ball, Polk County Fire and Rescue Squad, Polk County Sheriff's Department, PCHS custodians, and the Benton Police Department. I would also like to thank all the students, parents, and community members who attended and exhibited the sportsmanship I have come to expect in this community. I am very honored and proud to serve Polk County High School and look forward to the rest of the season and school year.

To the Buehler family:
Just a few lines to say thanks for what you & your family have done for this area. I have read the Polk County News for most of my life... I recall when you purchased the paper from Jasper Woody... if memory serves me correctly... wondering at the time how you all would fit into this county. You have dug yourself a trench over the past 25 years and made this your home and made this newspaper a staple to area residents. A place where some people weren't so accepting of outsiders as other places might have been. In any case, it takes a special kind of person to step into life in general and stick with it in Polk County.
To Ingrid, I have read your articles telling us of your battle with cancer. I am sure there are many prayers being made on your behalf. God will give you and your family strength to face whatever plans he has for you... if you just ask. In any case, rest assured that you have managed to affect the lives of Polk Co and area residents in many good ways so congratulations on a job well done. Many blessings to all of you

I continue to read your column on your cancer and have to say again how amazing I think you are. I don't have the right words to say, other than I pray you have the least discomfort possible. This horrible disease effects so many people. So many suffer in silence. I believe your words will do much for people. Help open their eyes and take stock in the lives they have, the time we have on this planet, and the loved ones we should hold close.
