Volant has no need for costume stunts

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Regarding Pat Patterson’s letter about the Amish.

I had to laugh at the question.

Costumes? Are they really that clueless?

First, Volant is a very nice town and I like to see the courage of areas to make their homes and town live again. They don’t need anyone in costume. Volant speaks for itself. Nice shops and people and great to visit.

Our Amish neighbors have enough to deal with without people actually thinking they are just for show.

They are kind, hard-working people who are just trying to live in this world today and do what they feel is best for their families.

They have their own beliefs which dictate how they live, as many of us do. They are just stricter and do not follow trends.

I myself believe different than many and also hear comments sometimes unkind because of my choice.

We would all be better off to try and imitate and be kinder and work harder and follow Bible truths.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
