Tara Morris from Jackson, Missouri:
"(Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint on Smokeless Tobacco) It has terrible effects on your health…essentially you are trading lung cancer for oral cancer. My husband and I constantly argue about his chewing tobacco. They don't advertise the harmful effects and …many people think it is safe…I really hope the government does not allow these companies to spread lies to those unknowing."
Heartland viewer Monica Nenniger:
"I recently had an unauthorized charge to my bank account. When I called the local branch I was informed they were from a company called Platinum Service…needless to say the number is answered by an automated service…it gives you options to contact different departments. After a selection is made the call is disconnected. I did an internet search of the company name…the results were alarming. There were at least seven websites with complaints against the company for withdrawing money from accounts without consent…a warning needs to be made public so other are not victimized…"
Marie Walker from Campbell, Missouri:
"Our school closes when we have snow and ice which makes traveling on the roads dangerous. Why do some schools expect the students to come to school for sports practice? If the children do not attend they are punished by running more laps or not allowed to play the next game…if the roads are so bad for school, why are they not for other school activities?"
