SCLC plans forum with Wadly citizens and officials

Dear Editor:

The Jefferson County Ga. Chapter of the SCLC has called for a Jefferson Co. Wadley citizens and Wadley local officials forum to be held at the Wadley branch library on July 17 at 10 a.m.

The forum has been launched to address the many complaints about the Wadley Ga. Police department, brought from the citizens of Wadley, Georgia, to the Jefferson Co. Chapter of the SCLC.

This is not a rave or a rant; however, this is a letter of call for addressing the issues and concerns of the citizens of Wadley.

The complaints of the citizens of Wadley, black and white alike, that have reached our chapter have left no other options but to answer the call.

The SCLC chapter has notified the chief of police, Mr. Wesley Lewis, Mayor Herman Baker, and all Wadley city council and commissioners to attend this most important forum in order to address the issues and concerns before this SCLC organization.

We are asking all supporters of Chief Wesley Lewis and the Wadley Police Department to also attend.

This forum will be governed and carried out in no other way than a Christian like manner and Jefferson County Chapter SCLC business.

The Jefferson Co. Ga. Chapter SCLC
Minister James Ivery, President
Mr. Bobby Adams, Vice President
Rev. Charles Washington, Chairman/Chaplain
Miss Cynthia Cuyler, Executive Secretary
Rev. Samuel Mosteller, SCLC Ga. State Unit President





Clements on U.S. foreign aid and U.S. support in the UN

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor: Below are the actual voting records of various Arabic/Islamic States which are recorded in both the US State Department and United Nations records:

• Kuwait and Oatar vote against the United States 67 percent of the time;

• Morocco and United Arab Emirates vote against the United States 70 percent of the time;

• Jordan and Tunisia vote against the United States 71 percent of the time;

• Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73 percent of the time;

• Yemen, Algeria and Oman vote against the United States 74 percent of the time;

• Sudan and Pakistan vote against the United States 75 percent of the time;

• Libya votes against the United States 76 percent of the time;

• Egypt votes against the United States 79 percent of the time;

• Lebanon votes against the United States 80 percent of the time;

• India votes against the United States 81 percent of the time;

• Syria votes against the United States 84 percent of the time;

• Mauritania votes against the United States 87 percent of the time.

U S Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

• Egypt, for example, after voting 79 percent of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

• Jordan votes 71 percent against the United States and receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

• Pakistan votes 75 percent against the United States. Receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

• India votes 81 percent against the United States and receives $143,699,000 annually.

Who in the heck started this and why?

They actually bite the hand that feeds them.

Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax savings back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay their taxes (if they are fortunate enough to have jobs).

Oh, by the way, Israel votes with the United States over 90 percent of the time, this may change based on present leadership.

Gordy feels we are on verge of becoming a heathen nation

Dear Editor:

Is America in danger of becoming a heathen nation? Many would say so!

We allow the abortion-murder of hundreds of thousands of innocents to be, mostly by Planned Parenthood annually.

Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. “I will repay.”

Children can’t pray or read the Bible in school in America like we could when I was in my early years. All this by edict of the U.S. Supreme Court!

Now the other weekend we had a gay pride parade in nearby Augusta! That type of activity is revulsive. No, telling what is next, my friends. We need more ministers speaking out. Proponents of this type of activity say it is a type of free speech and is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

I recall when I was in the U.S. Air Force branch of the National Security Agency when the Cold War was in high gear, the welcome sign was not out for these people.
