Leave Obamacare in place
As someone who has benefited from the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, I demand my Senators vote to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act.
I do not see it as a disaster. It has been a godsend. I feel that it has saved my life. I can finally afford the tests that need to be done, the medications required and the preventative care that cut costs in the long run.
My pre-existing conditions are covered. To repeal it means that millions of people will be without affordable health care. Lives will be put into danger. That does not appear to be pro-life. Are we not to save lives instead of destroying them?
What a disaster there will be if it is repealed without the same kind of coverage. Senators — hands off the Affordable Care Act.
'Christmas Memories' program was wonderful
Recently, I was a lucky participant in a very special, one-night-only musical event entitled "Christmas Memories" at the Footlight Theater on Dec. 17. It starred Jeremiah Souza and featured the Footlight Players' vocal ensemble, the Footnotes.
The evening started with the choir beautifully executing two carols acapella, then followed it up with a program of exquisite solos by Mr. Souza. Although the weather outside was frightful, the small audience was delighted to witness such amazing talent from the rich, talented voices that are in our community. It was a shame there was not any publicity to garner a larger crowd to enuoy this evening.
My thanks to all members of the Footnotes for donning their victorian outfits and delighting the audience with seven carols and much gratitude goes out to Jeremiah for the amazing program he brought for all of us to enjoy. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when he sang, with so much passion, of the "Christmas Shoes" and our hearts soared in joy when he delivered his rendition of the classic, "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
Please support this community theater that has entertained our citizens for 67 years and rediscover how important live theatrical arts are to our area.
