Letters | Thanks to ‘angel’ who helped at last year’s Monday after Masters bash; Take time to study, discuss immigration issues; Judge’s ruling in case shows crime can pay

I want to thank the guardian angel that saved my life last April 15th

Woman who helped remains

clear memory on blurry night

I want to thank the guardian angel that saved my life last April 15th

I will never forget her face or her hair, which I find incredible considering I don’t remember anything else about that evening at the House of Blues.

My boyfriend and I were in town for the Monday After the Masters Pro-Am and the Hootie and the Blowfish concert that followed. The events of the evening are an unnerving blur, my boyfriend and I got separated. We are convinced we were drugged. It is the only explanation; we each had three drinks and can handle our booze.

The details aren’t as important as the sweet woman who helped me. I am almost positive she was a MAM volunteer. She deserves recognition for not losing patience and abandoning me outside the HOB. I hate to think what would have happened to me if it weren’t for her kindness.

Take time to study,

discuss critical issue

Immigration is still an extremely important issue to our state and nation. I understand that with election season right around the corner, politicians do not want to discuss this issue.

I would implore not only elected officials but the public at large to have an open and frank discussion about this problem. There is no doubt that it’s a tough situation for everyone, but we as a country have to get a grip on this problem before it spirals completely out of control. I’m not advocating for one particular policy or another, I simply believe we should at least lay this issue on the table and start discussions again.

It’s our future and it’s about time we became less political and more practical about immigration.

Judge’s decision

shows crime can pay

Dayo White and Beulah White embezzled more than $5 million from federal and state grants plus HUD over a five-year period in the early 2000s. Dayo White was ordered to pay back $ 62,117.00, of which $ 31,460. is still outstanding.

Beulah White paid back $ 3,500. A judge has released both of any further obligation to repay the money, according to The Sun News on April 1. (Appropriate date, don't you think?)

Anyone who says crime does not pay is a bigger fool than I am.
