The Rockville Police issue

To the editor;

Councilman Mark Pierzchla is quoted [Sentinel, Aug. 11, 2016] as saying that one of his priorities is “adding more police officers to the city’s municipal force, though he did not say how many officers that would include.” 

This brings to mind a remark by Prime Minister Salisbury that “if you believe the doctors, nothing is wholesome; if you believe the theologians, nothing is innocent; if you believe the soldiers, nothing is safe.” 

Substitute police chiefs for soldiers and you have the situation in Rockville.

Beating the heat

To the editor;

The weather in Rockville is a horrible mess.

It’s hot and my neighbor says there’s no such thing as Global Warming.

He also wants to vote for Donald Trump.

Do you think there’s a connection?

And now for something completely different

To the editor;

Has anyone else noticed there are few problems in Montgomery County like in the rest of the United States?

Here we have a good government, people who are involved and a responsive ability to cope with change.

We should be the guide book on how to conduct good local government and we should be a lesson to the rest of the world.

Why don’t the media report on that.

J. Sprague
