Proud to be an American

I am a proud American and thank my husband every day for loving me and bringing me to America.

Proud to be an American

I agree with the letter from Pat Gee (“Immigrants should try citizenship,” May 7).

It is time our government got back to laws and keeping them as years ago. I am a war bride. Married my dear husband in 1948. He was an American motorcycle MP. We met and love hit, so we did all the shots, papers and what was required, and we got married.

We were married 56 years. I never did fall on the government. I went to night school, did learn English, voted in every election, lived by the law of the land, and I love America.

I agree everyone who enters our country should be a citizen, learn English, pay their dues here, teach their children English, not ask for interpreters in a school, hospital or license bureau, pay their taxes and respect America.

We the people pay for the emergency treatments and immigrants just take it. I know most are good workers, but is it too much to ask to learn the language when living here and have the papers to prove they are legal?

Citizenship is a must. You bet people who did come through Ellis Island wanted to be good citizens, and some founded companies like Boeing and Weyerhaeuser, which made the country great.

I am a proud American and thank my husband every day for loving me and brining me to America. Thank you, Pat Gee. I certainly agree with your letter and I hope some will read it and do the right thing.

Tuna looks like cat food, sans chunks

Tuna fish — what a lie to the consumer.

Bumble Bee chunk white tuna. Are you kidding? It looks like cat food. I cannot tell you how many cans of tuna I have thrown away. Starkist is the same.

Yesterday, I bought a can of Bumble Bee albacore white chunk tuna.

What a laugh! There was not a chunk in the can. It was mixed white and dark shredded.

Tuna companies should get honest with the consumers. When it looks like cat food, that’s what they should say on the can. I am one person that will not buy this product again.

If you have the same pet peeve, let’s do something about it.
