Dear Editor,

I was taught in government class that the constitution states the government is “We the people, of the people, by the people and for the people.” Somewhere “we the people” forgot that we are the government.

Looking at the official 2014 primary voting percentages from the courthouse, out of 2,567 registered voters in Chase County only 39 percent voted. What is even more sad is of that only 24 percent of the state’s registered voters went to the polls and voted in the primary.

This tells me that the highest percentage of voters thinks everything is just fine, or they just don’t care about our country and our freedoms we have because so many sacrificed for us.

“We the People” can take back our government by voting. I challenge all voters to go to the polls Nov. 4 and vote as our forefathers planned for us to do. When this is done, “We the People” will be heard.

To Wauneta Breeze Staff:

I was born in Wauneta July 27, 1923, Virginia “Tootsie” Tharen, my doctor was Dalley.

My dear friend, Lesa Mukes from Georgia, had White Thumb send me flour and cereal for my 91st birthday. Then a lady by the name of Ruth at the library referred her to the Wauneta Breeze and received the paper of 125 years — What a thrill!

I sat at that soda fountain many times. My sister, Bernice, worked for Mr. Berry. My sister, Charlotte, worked for the Bradleys at the telephone company.

I remember Jake Wade, Jimmie Johnston, Mrs. Frasler, Pete Athey, Hoffs Grocery Store, Carpenter Meat Market, Harvey’s Feed Lot, Rider’s movie house and d’Allemand Bakery.

Yes, my dad was in carpentry, thought he built many things in Wauneta.

Loved my childhood. This brought back many wonderful memories.

All the best, much success.
