Transmissions, tires, bonds and levies
I remember vividly when my dad sat me down as a 15-year-old and told me he would help me get my first car.

"I will match what you can earn to buy a car," he said.

What did I do? Found the cheapest car I could, with barely a working transmission, to get one as soon as I could. I named it "Sweet Thing.'"

The legacy of Wildhaven Preserve
Concerning the article on April 11 titled "Wildhaven Preserve may become public land," (The Nugget, page 1): As the caretaker of Wildhaven Preserve I would like to add some insight into this continuing saga.

The devil's details of firearms regulation
Since the Florida high school shooting, there have been many gun-control proposals and even state legislation passed, at least in Florida. I am truly encouraged by the actions of so many high school students across this country and their growing influence.

Support programs that make Sisters a community
My family and I would like to convey our strong support of both the Sisters School District and Sisters Park & Recreation District five-year operating levies on the upcoming May 15 election.

I also found it ironic that directly under the article was an ad for a LI battery chainsaw.

'A cheerful heart is good medicine'
In her article "Mental illness and places of worship," ("Your story matters," The Nugget, January 31, page 7) Audry Van Houweling makes some valid points.

Throughout history, the mentally ill typically have not been able to find refuge in places of worship and have instead been faced with shame at their presumed lack of faith or pressure to put on a happy face despite their internal turmoil. However, I thank Ms. Van Houweling for noting that many churches now "recognize the prevalence and impact of mental illness" and are doing something about it. Yes, giving each other grace is crucial.
