Despite living in the same small community as Mr. Schoettker I have never had the opportunity to meet him.

He is doing what all Americans should do — keeping a watch on government.
In his Sept.25 letter entitled “Divine Interdiction,” he implies the Lord punished Butler County because of the policies of our federal and state representatives. The Lord made it rain on the day of the Butler Fall Festival forcing its cancellation!
