I am writing in regard to your recent article about the Buffet Foundation's donation to the Sheriff's equipment department.
The Buffet Foundation has often made sizable donations to the betterment of the city of Decatur. Does anyone ever thank them? Well, I want to.
I have lived in Decatur all my life and have seen the ups and downs which this city has experienced. I lived through the good times and now, it seems, some of the bad. The amount of parolees, crime, and the loss of our major industries has contributed to the down side. Too bad. Decatur has been great. I still love it here, and lots of us 'oldsters' do.
I am grateful to the Buffet Foundation for paying attention to our needs. Thank you. Thank you. I only wish there was something bigger and better to say.
