To the editor: Elmore was honored and privileged to have the Vietnam Memorial Wall (The Moving Wall) in the village.
Thanks to the many hours that Ron Distel spent over several years trying to get the moving monument here, and to the many volunteers and donors who helped make it become a reality.
The park was beautiful, and when the wall was put in place, everything looked so serene.
It took many people to make the platform for the wall to sit on and to landscape the area. Many items were donated to make the park beautiful. Window displays carried out the theme. A number of volunteer also helped set up the wall and were there to greet people as they visited the wall. Others donated their time to behind-the-scene duties, then helped take down the wall and clean up the park area afterwards.
The people of Elmore and the surrounding community care about and work together to make great things happen in Elmore.
So many people were thoughtful enough to post pictures of the various activities pertaining to the Moving Wall so that people who could not be there could see what was taking place, and that too was greatly appreciated.
We can be proud of our little community and the many people who give of their time to make the community a better place to live and for others to come and visit.

To the editor: I have heard many complaints of people double-dipping. I strongly agree, to some degree, to limits.
If you chose to or retire because of term limits and return to your place of employment, you should lose your benefits of retirement, such as medical, prescription, hospitalization, etc.
These are carried by retirees, many on benefits that are small. We retirees are faced with cost cuts, living on an income that is fixed. I’m not crying, but why should you return to a job just to refill it?
If you want to return to work, great, but not the same job in the same position.
