Lucretia Thomas’ Classmates



Dear Mr. Editor:

Here we go again with your wrong information regarding your family people. I have been getting calls regarding Lucretia’s obituary of May 6, 2015, which you have written. You claim that Lucretia graduated from CWA in 1940, and among her classmates were Rudolph Grimes your cousin and fellow person from Crozerville, Rochforte Weeks.

Omissions In Monday’s Editorial


Mr. Editor:

There were two important omissions in yesterday’s editorial concerning South Africans who lived in Liberia during the apartheid years.  Both were two outstanding musicians.

The first was Hugh Masekela, the celebrated South African trumpeter and the second,  Philimon Hou, composer of the best selling hit “Grazing in the Grass.” 

My Unlawful Detention at Salem Police Depot


Dear Mr. Editor:

On April 10, at about 12:30am, I was on my way home on the Airfield, just three blocks away from the Police Depot  and came in contact with two vehicles parked on the road with no place for commuters to pass. I waited for two minutes for one of the vehicles to move so I could go home, but to no avail.

I finally touched the cars so that the occupants could be aware that they had blocked the road.

Dear Madam President:

Happy Easter to you and your family and all good will Liberians worldwide.  As we Christians celebrate the most memorable time of the year, where our Lord willingly paid a price He did not owe, I hear the melody “IF I CAN HELP JUST ONE SOMEBODY THEN MY LIVING ON THIS EARTH WILL NOT BE IN VAIN”.   

Nine years ago, I had the opportunity to visit a distant 13 year-old relative who had a cardiac problem at the Peace Ward at JFK.  However, next to her was another child of the same age and same diagnosis. 

Pastor Kortu Brown Responds to His Critics on Dual Citizenship

I read with interest the Daily Observer’s Editorial of Thursday, March 05, 2015, entitled: “Dual Citizenship: Look Up and Forward, Pastor Brown – not Down and Backward” and Letters to the editor captioned: “Dual Citizenship: Liberians Everywhere Take Pastor Kortu Brown to Task” in the same publication, page 5, largely accusing me of being “stupid,” “idiot,” “playing the ethnic card,” etc. because I dared to express my VIEWS on the current debate on dual citizenship in Liberia.
