Playing politics with the vaccine

To the editor:

Wonderful...the virus vaccines are beginning to be approved. There is lots of hype and promises about them over the past few months and excitement among the citizens.

But suddenly we find the general population is not included among candidates for vaccination; only the “front-liners” and not all of them in the state at that because the anticipated numbers of doses cannot be shipped.

Nothing against those on the fighting edge of the battle; they are overworked tending to those virus-stricken. It’s great that they are protected from the scourge, but the vaccine will not slow the spread because the populace is not eligible for the vaccine until possibly spring.

Therefore the latest daily numbers will not decrease for months and then only if enough people, when eligible, agree to take it. So where’s the big deal now?

Who can we trust for the truth? Not the politicians whose only interest is exercising dubious power. Not the scientists as they are still low on the learning curve. Not the news media, the truth is alien to them. The truth is hard to find. I’m still looking and hoping.

The evidence of God surrounds usTo the editor:

Thank you for the opportunity to respond a recent letter that describes Bible believers as delusional.

To the question, “What can the evidence of things not seen” possibly be?

The answer, we cannot see God, but the earth, the things in the earth, the solar system are all the results and evidence of God’s person and power to create and maintain His creation.

Furthermore, each time you write down the date such as 12-20-20 A.D. you are stating that Jesus has been here because A.D. is the abbreviation for Anno Domini which means, “In the year of our Lord.”

Moreover, Jesus is coming back as stated in Philippians 2:10-11, “and that every knee should bow and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

The Apostle Paul stated in 2 Peter 1:16, “We have not followed cunningly devised fables, but were eyewitnesses of His (Jesus) majesty.”

Who are you going to believe, a secular humanist or an eyewitness to the truth of the Gospel?

Will the 'genie' go back in the bottle?

In this case, the “Genie” is telehealth services and the “bottle” is previous insurance and regulatory restrictions that often prevented its use.

Thanks to, or because of COVID-19 and the pandemic, health care providers have had to adapt ...
