Letters to the Editor 05/22/2013

To the Editor:

About a month ago Reverend Schmidtke's dog "Snowball" was killed on Larch Street by a hit-and-run driver. When I read the original letter to the editor from Reverend Schmidtke, my heart just broke. Here in this little town that seems to care for so many, someone has caused such pain for this man of God.

I noticed in the paper this week there is also a story on distracted driving being lethal ... and again, Snowball's death has been addressed. This time the gruesomeness of the situation was described.

Snowball's picture was in the paper and it makes me ask: how could anyone who caused this gentle animal to be so badly injured with fur flying, broken bones and a torn-off leg, not be seen by someone, and be able to keep their terrible secret. Snowball deserves to be remembered by watching, listening, and observing, and possibly identifying the person who didn't have the courage to stop, but just kept on going. Only excessive speed could have caused such terrible damage and death.

Since they cannot speak, remember, we are their voice!
