Court records indicate that Edgewood Police Officer James D. Foutch had a history of financial woes. (Article published April 14)
• "Knowing someone is that far in debt, how is it OK to leave them around and in charge of evidence, i.e.: drugs, money, weapons, etc., as a policeman?

Not to mention how many others within the Edgewood and other local police departments might have the same or similar known problems!"
THB: A point to ponder.

• "I am all for feeding the hungry, but it makes me ask what happens to the food stamp money allotted to each eligible family to feed their children? I would think it is important enough that if a child complains of being hungry, it should warrant an investigation of that family to find out why. With all the welfare assistance programs in place, there is no excuse for any child going hungry."
THB: Agreed, in this great country no child should ever be hungry and complaints should warrant an investigation into what's going on at home. Taxpayers are paying for these programs and someone should be accountable.
