li,? 4 The Superior Opinions x p R E S S Every vote counts Between now and Tuesday, this newspaper encour- ages all members of the Kansas electorate to carefully consider the issues and the candidates, decide which candidate will best represent your interests and then go to the polls and vote. As two recent Nebraska elections have shown, a handful of votes can determine local and statewide elections. polling places will be open Tuesday for that i election. Though this is somewhat of an the Kansas primary as there are no state- widespread interest, the primary of great local interest to voters in both Jewell counties. counties, local races are being contested by Court clouds the issues Six Thomas Shanahan clones to immedi- Positions on the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Udge Shanahan acknowledged, thecurrent Ne- mess has been largely created by the con- of state and federal courts. from a 6-1 rule that struck down a stop- property tax law, Shanahan accused his the constitution a "vehicle for expression of tax policy." said the court had created "a black hole fromthis court's tax decisions, which have the collapse of constitutional power expressly the legislature." we all want to pay lower taxes, a majority realize taxes must be paid before our state and local governments can function. And through a series of votes taken since 1970, the Nebraska elec- rotate has approved a taxing scheme which the courts now find objectionable. As recently as last May the voters approved a con- stitutional amendr, nt showing their willingness to per- mit a taxing plan a majority of the judges apparently dislike. The courts in,both Kansas and Nebraska have given the concept of "uniformity" a position of great signifi- cance. One we believe far greater than have a majority of the citizens of those two states. * Court action in both states has resulted in tax messes which threatened the very existence of needed govern- ment programs and the continued economic survival of some important segments of the states' economies. We believe we are entitled to court systems which clarify, not cloud, tax issues. Letters To The Editor plehaented in a very discrimina- tory way. If one is poor and a minority, the chance of receiv- ing the death penalty increases. We need to acknowledge and address the poverty, racism and hunger that are at the root of the violence.

Apparently Pine Haven could not get low enough bids in Kansas or Jewell County. No wonder the rural area is getting smaller and smaller. Why, Ne- braska? How many bids were re- quire.d? How many bids were re- ceived? Back in the late 70's Manka- to had a good auto dealer. But vehicles were bought in Smith County not in Jewell.

Sad isn't, that we get good service and people a few miles away from Superior get such bad ser- vice. Sincerely, Pam Schultz Gerberding Editor: According to "Family News in Focus," July 14, pro-family Democrats are finding party leaders hostile to their views. Clinton billed the Democratic Convention as a forum for the expression of differing points of view, but Pennsylvania Gover- nor, Robert Casey (Democrat), related that's not the case for all delegates. He stated, "In place of freedom of speech, we have a situation in which the conven- tion imposed a gag role on the most important issue of our time." He refered to abortion on demand (abortion as a means of birth control). Gov. Casey fig- ured prominently in the Su- preme Court's recent ruling on Casey vs. Planned Parenthood. He said he was in New York to is the most vio- m the earth today. highest violent We im- our citizens than We are the nation that executions Of Nebraska is man who was and raping a as a people be because man? Or is it desire for re- have used the and their crime POpulation con-. ddth sent is only more Vl- I penalty is im- warn Democrats that they've gone too far in supporting abor- tion on demand. "Our party plat- form is out of the main stream. It is on the far left, it is radical, it is extreme and does not repre- sent the view of a majority of the people of this country," Casey lamented. Liberal Democrats worked hard to keep Gov. Casey from speaking at the convention and ,columnist Cal Thomas said this was an indication that "the Dem- ocratic Party is dominaed by leftist political types and cannot (will not) practice the pluralism and tolerance they preach for every body else." Sen. Gore, the Democratic Vice president pick, favors a tax- payer, funded national health in- surance plan including abortion on demand. Up until his political union with Clinton, he had his- tofically opposed such a plan. Another interesting note is the endorsement of the Clinton- Gore ticket by two major homo- sexual groups, "The Gay and Lesbian Rights Task Force" and the so called "Human Rights Campaign Fund," promising to commit a large number of vol- unteers to help Clinton and Gore get elected. Clinton has and is openly counting the homosexual community, politically speaking. This information is not meant to insult anyone's political preference, but to" inform, be- cause more than likely, you'll not hear or see this information by means of regular media sources. The reason being, the regular media is as much pro- abortion on demand and pro-ho- mosexual rights as is the Demo- cratic Party leadership. We in mainstream U.S.A. often fail to get the flip side information, and that's a shame, because it creat- ed a void where intelligent and informed decision making is concerned.

Over the years, I have decided skill has little to do w winning. True, the more you practe the better you get at perfo- hag, but that undeniable factor or chance is still dominate. Your skill has no effect when you don't have cards that play together. In each game, you have to do the best you can with the cards you are given. It seems to be the same in life. When disappointments come we tend to think it is because we have done something wrong or that be didn't know the things we should have, but that may not actually the case. It may merely be the uncertain element ha living. We share the same chances for happiness and sorrow with all humanity. There are no guarantees. I like it better when I win at rummy but I realize it doesn't me I am the better player, it only means I did well with the cards I h. And so it is in life. Do the best you can with thc hand you are deh and forget about the false adage which wants us to believe if e behave properly we will always have hap#hess, Without the disappointment of losing once in a while the joy of winning would soon become a drudgery.
