Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, said those fights were self-evident truths. Our nation is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy because our government has been incorrectly focused on taxing and spending when it should have been fo- cused on providing the freedom to reach our potential. We remember not so many years ago when another Democrat, John Kennedy, said, to "those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves." His speech that day was loaded with other references to what we can and must do for ourselves. Government can help but it can not keep our people. Kennedy told his audience, "In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine will rest the final suc- cess or failure of our course." And that is still true today. The success or failure of our country is the responsibility of the people, not the politicians. Gross mismanagement quality while reducing the cost of producing your news- paper each week. It doesn't appear the postal system is serious about trimming expenses. We recently learned the postal system managers have invited a number of large mailers and their spouses on a free five-day luxury trip to the Summer Olympics. The bill for this vacation has been estimated at $440,000. Included will be free hotel rooms, Olympic tickets, grounds transportation, receptions, breakfasts, lunches and dinners. As an official sponsor of the 1992 Olympic games, the USPS expects to spend a whopping $122 million. And all this from the guys who couldn't afford $80,000 to provide essential mail service between neigh- boring communities in Kansas and Nebraska. . ; ....

Bob Hanson, 'new owner of the Red Cloud Chief, is relocating the newspaper offiCe and conseqUently has several pieces of print- ing equipment that must be moved. Friday morning I told him i would had a forklift to Red Cloud and move a printing press. When I went to the farm to get my trailer Friday morning, I wasn't surprised to fred two of its four tires were flat. The trailer is used infrequently and the tires always seem to leak. I inflated the tires and headed for the newspaperplant where I expected to load the forklift. I hadn't gone a half-mile before one of the tires failed. FortunatelyI had a spare tire. L o a d i n g the forklift in the alley near the rear entrance to the newspaper plant wasn't a problem but getting out of the alley was. Though I was parked near the Third Street end of the alley, a Semi.trtk driver who wan/ed to unload freight iaear the north end of the alley insisted I back nearly the entire length of the alley to Fourth Street so he could enter the alley from Third Street. The work in Red Cloud went welt and I expected to be home by noon. However, just before reaching Guide Rock, a pickup tire blew Out. " ' ..... I understand why the first tire failed.

We are grateful to all the hos- pitai auxiliary members who do- mated food items, cash, served as the calling committee and vol- unteered to work. The assistance and helpfulness of the hospital staff, especially Sandy Borden, the maintenance department and dietary department was also greatly appreciated. They made our job much easier. The members of our commu- nity and the surrounding area made this event a success, with their interest, support, atten- dance and generous donations. Sincerely, Jan Diehl Ann Schultz Editor: I enjoyed the item on the cir- cus by Mel Rhoads in the June 25 issue of The Express. I want to add that Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus continued to show under the "Big Top" into the 1950s. My dad, Merrill Wright, and I attended a performance of the RBB and B Circus under the "Big Top" in Grand Island in August of 1951. I was home on leave from the air force before going to Germany during the Korean "Police Action." This year, 1951, was also the year the motion picture, "The Greatest Show on Earth, " was filmed as the show traveled across the country. I still have the ticket from that show and the back of the ticket it states that by buying the ticket permission was granted to show any of the spec- tators of the show in the movie if filming was done during the performance. : .... Respectfully+ .... Robert Wright Big Wells, Texas ii - ii Letters To The Editor Editor: Last week's Express con- mined a letter to the editor about the baseball teams and the boys who set the bench. My son is one of those bench sitters. I'll be the first to admit he's not as good as some of the other players, but sitting the bench or always playing in the outfield just hoping a ball will come his way will not improve his game. My son has "sat the bench" the first three innings of every game but one (and at that partic- ular game there were just enough boys to fill the roster) while the same five boys play the infield at the same positions for every inning of every game, never to sit the bench. This not only teaches poor sportsmanship to these boys but my son doesn't get the chance to impove his game. I'm sure from the sound of last week's letter my son is not the only one who gets discouraged because he "sits the bench." Winning the game is not the most important thing to boys at this age. And let's not teach them to believe it is. Mother of a bench sitter Editor: I live and farm in Nuckolls County. We will not only be electing a president this fall, but also the person who will serve us in the House of Representatives for the next two years. I am a registered Republican and have been for the 24 years I've been able to vote. I've sup- ported and contributed to the is a strong believer in Christian family value. He may not be as well known as Mr. Barrett, but don't hold that against him. He's going to try to visit all the counties in the district before November. I en- courage anyone that hasn't met him to find out when he will be in your area and go meet him. He's a common man with com- mon sense. We all need to ask "What has Bill Barrett done that has bene- fited our communities these last two years?" Let's get behind Fisher and send him to Washington for two years. I believe we would be well served. Sincerely, Roger Williams Nora, Nob. Editor: The Tenth Annual Firekrack- er Run on July 4 was a huge success. The community of Su- perior can be proud to be so sup- portive of the largest out-state race in Nebraska outside of Co- lumbus. The race would not have been possible without many generous people who contribut- ed time, money and effort in to making the race a huge success. Contributors included Alexander Motors, Owen Healthcare, Supe- rior Family Medical Center, Westside Health Services, Menke Drug Store, MSD Phar- maceuticals, Ideal Market, Jack & Jill, Pepsi, Security National Bank, Farmers State Bank and Trust Company, Deuel's Phar- macy, Walt's Furniture, Ace Hardware, Creations Gifts, Joyce's Fabric, The Looking Republican party and Republi- Glass, Carmen s Superior Vi- can candidates.

He's a man of Savings & Loan, Dr. Mike integrity and committment and Hoers, Dr. Ron Thompson, Dr. I --=) Howard Miller and Mid States Well Works. A lot of people helped with the race. Dan Scott and his Boy- scouts raised the flag while Corey Scott played the National Anthem. They also served as course guides during the race. Maxine Rempe recorded all the entrants and organized the finish sheets. Donna Miller, Ann Alex- ander, Beverly Beavers, Martha Young, Louise Henderson, Glenda Kermoade, Julie Delka, LaVeta Blecha, and Jan Ekart all helped with registration and handout out T-sh. Liz and Mary Kaldahl were in charge of distributing the food. Barb Boeka and Monica Bartling helped figure race re- suits. Fred Meyers helped start the races, while Andrew Miller, Kevin Miller, Doyle Christens- on, and Mel Crowe ran the clocks. Marj Blair and Beverly Beavers helped at the starting line. Jan Rempe, Clifford White, Ty Young, Rick Andreasen, Kim Delka and Rich Nelson helped with directing rurmers to the right chutes and recording results. We appreciated the water sta- tions ran by the Jim and Shareth Bruning family and the Gilbert and DeEtte Smidt family. Water sprinklers along the race course were certainly appreciated. Steve Wright, Warren Roe, Jerry and Fern Combs, Jim Bruning, Francis and Shari Placke, Dr. Leibel, Libby Baird, Tom Beck- ler were all people I remember either squirting us down or put- ting out sprinklers. We certainly appreciate that. I apologize if I missed anyone, because the water sprinklers are certainly helpful. The participants really make the race and hopefully a good time was had by all. We hope to see you all there next year! Sincerely, Elmer Rempe + Superior Joggers (Continued to Page 411) Area Church Directory Catholic Church Services St. Joseph's Church Superior, Nob.
