About Dr. Hamilton
To the Editor: It is with greatest sadness to be writing this on the 30th anniversary of the practice of Kyle Hamilton, M.D. Thank you, Corsicana and the surrounding areas for allowing him to provide quality patient care, his primary goal.
Yes, he did close his practice, but he planned on working up to 90 days as this is the amount of time his resignation required. He wanted to provide his patients with quality care, refills, and transition time so patients could locate a new physician.
However, the hospital CEO decided Dr. Hamilton would not return after his resignation. Dr. Hamilton is quite concerned about his patients with this situation and any distress or inconvenience caused by this decision.
Thank you for the treasured relationships formed with him and me over the last almost 30 years.
Boy Scout decision
To the Editor: On July 17, the Boy Scouts of America reaffirmed their long-standing policy of excluding boys engaging in homosexual behavior. Yet, the organization’s honorary president, Barack Obama, and liberal groups disagree with their decision, as evidenced by articles published in the Aug. 9 and Aug. 11 Corsicana Daily Sun.
As an Eagle Scout myself, the purpose of scouting is more than hiking and camping, but to develop boys into responsible men and American citizens. The Scout Oath pledges “to do my duty to God and my country,” and to keep oneself “morally straight.” The Scout Law concludes that a scout is “reverent.”
Scouting is international, open to all religious faiths — Christianity, Mormonism, Buddhism, Judaism and Islam — where all agree homosexuality is a choice of unacceptable moral behavior. Following one’s conscience, to distinguish right and wrong, is woven throughout the scouting program.
Due to dozens of cases of child sexual abuse from the 1960’s to the 1980’s, the Boy Scouts banned homosexual scout leaders from serving since the late 1990’s (a decision upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000). According to Bob Mazzuca, chief scout executive of the Boy Scouts, parents were behind the movement to keep the policy.
Most people do not realize that nearly 70 percent of all Scout troops are chartered and are supported by faith-based organizations. The Boy Scouts of America should have the freedom to create a membership criteria that represents their values, in the best interest of kids’ safety and parents’ rights.

AirSho a delightful experience
My husband and I attended the Corsicana Airsho on Saturday, May 11. This was the first time for both of us to see the airsho. I would like to personally thank all those involved in truly making this a delightful experience. It was especially special because of my husband’s poor health.

To the Editor: Education, in my opinion, is the key to solving the problems we face in today’s world. We owe it to every child in Corsicana to provide him/her with the tools to reach their fullest potential.

Our rights in danger
To the Editor: In reference to the Corsicana Daily Sun article dated April 4, 2013, the president has already trampled on our First Amendment religious freedom, forcing people to pay for contraception and abortion — now he is tackling our Second Amendment rights. He uses children when politically expedient.
