Trash service not much help for residents
I would like to respond to the Jerry Lehman letter about people throwing the trash along the road.
How do you get our so-called trash service to pick up the trash and falling limbs when you are told by the trash company that you have to cut limbs three-feet long and bundle them like a present.
I have called many times to the supervisor and he does not return my calls. I met this man at the mayor’s summit and he said if I have any more problems to call him.
The mayor’s office has been more than helpful to me on my problems, and I thank him and his entire staff.
I live by ISU and have an empty lot behind my house which everyone thinks is a national dump site. ISU has to come out every few days to clean it up.
I would also like to comment on Dr. Lawrence Dultz recent letter — he is so right about the hard work he and his staff put into making my life better. He does work hard for his money and I think he is worth a million.
I have a good friend in Mount Zion, Ill., who is a doctor and works very hard, on weekends when he covers for other doctors his phone goes off all the time. Try walking in their shoes.

Great health care from caring doctor
I would like to respond to Ronn Mott’s column of Nov. 9.
Dr. Lawrence Dultz is one of the most caring doctors that I have ever known. When my husband had a stroke in 2008, Medicare wanted to move him to a nursing home but Dr. Dultz would not release him so that he could keep him where he could make sure he was taken good care of.
It takes more than money to become a great doctor with a heart to care about patients. Thank you, Dr. Dultz, for also being there for me and my family when he passed away. I don’t know if this will be printed or not but I hope so, so that people will know just what kind of doctor he is. I pray you or your family never have to go through what mine did.

Honoring Wea tribe good idea
I applaud Vicki Rainbolt for her Nov. 26 letter about including Wea Indians in the Terre Haute Walk of Fame.
It would be appropriate to observe the month of January as the Native American Heritage Month, along the lines of the celebration of February as the African American History Month.
