How long will you put up with it?
You thought Saddam Hussein was bad?
The 2003-2003 annual report of Planned Parenthood Federation
of America shows that they performed 227,375 surgical abortions in 2002 while
referring only 1,963 women to adoption agencies.
Do you pay taxes? This same report says that they received
$254.4 million from the government. Your tax dollars helped Planned Parenthood
kill an average of 623 unborn babies every day of 2002.
Then they have the effrontery to say, "The world is in
desperate need of the kind of positive, life-affirming change that the Planned
Parenthood mission, vision and promise brings to humanity"—(page 2, annual
How long will you put up with it? How long will God put up
/s/ Rev. Donald Van Dyken, Sunnyside
I would like to thank Pastor Groenewold for his January
religious article, "The church is divided, yet..."
I agree wholeheartedly that the churches need to recognize
and work with their similiarities instead of distancing themselves by
magnifying their differences.
It was once brought to my attention that a church's pastor
in town had ridiculed my own church. I wrote this pastor a nice letter pointing
out our real beliefs and my thoughts that we should act as Christians and unite
in our efforts. If we all did this there would not be radical religions trying
to destroy those who believe differently from them and trying to force their
own beliefs on the world. There would be no more terrorists.
The efforts to be loving, to be true Christians begin at
home with each one of us, so that it may radiate out into the world.

and levy issues
As a rule I am not a fan of new taxes, and do not vote for
them often. I will, however, be voting for the Sunnyside school bond and levy
this Feb. 3.
I think it is safe to say that our district has been frugal
with money; our tax rates are among the very lowest in th eValley. This money
will pay for the construction of two new schools in our district. It will cost
us very little in proportion to what the state will contribute in matching
It seems to me the most cost efficient way to meet our
present and future needs.
