((Festival in the Park runs an annual budget of close to half a million dollars. But it provides just a few hundred in scholarships each year.
That story brought this response from a viewer in Martinsville [Phil Sparks]
"If the organization had a quarter of a million dollars in the fund and gave out that few dollars in scholarships they need some fiscal responsibility injected into their scheme. It doesn't take an MBA to go in and run the festival and do the things that return the most to the most. All that is needed is a calculator, some solid records of expenditures and a record of individual event proceeds."
It's been two weeks since Governor Gilmore met with leaders of the NAACP to discuss the group's objections to a Confederate history month proclamation. But letters keep coming in, like this one from a viewer in Blacksburg [Shawn McCleod].
"I'm not racist, but my roommate at school is black and we both agree that this as become a problem that should be stopped. No big deal is ever made of the "Malcom X" movie and I do not seem to recall a national white history month. So why is there such a big deal? The blacks seem to be receiving everything that they want and the one thing that the white Americans want is soon to become nothing. This is our past as Martin Luther King Jr. is also our past, but we cannot forget him so why should we forget the Confederate flag?"
Last week's raid on the home of a law-abiding couple in Pulaski outraged a viewer in Keysville [J. Rothwell.]
The way it sounds is the police did NO investigation after receiving the information from their so-called informant. Do they just take the word of these people? Is there no requirement to check out the information given? Although I do not believe in suing for just any reason, I believe I would in this case...Storming into someone's home without proper information...is WRONG!"
