Answers about the end of the world are in the Bible

To the editor,

I enjoyed reading Bob Meadows’ column in the December 30th paper. He sure has a good handle on the political situation in our state.

He does mention one thing that caught my attention and that is about the end of the world. It surprises me of the ignorance of so many people in this country on this subject. Most of the people living here have a book somewhere in their home called the Bible. If they would just blow the dust off from it and search it for the answer to this question they would find it.

This subject is very clear in scripture. This world is not going to end this year or any time soon, but the thing that could happen at any time is that God is going to snatch up those who are really living for Jesus so that they will not have to be here on earth when so many terrible things happen. This event is called the rapture. The Bible clearly says that no man knows the day or the hour, but God does give us clear signs of when this is about to take place. These signs have become evident in recent times, like the many wars and other conflicts and the constant record breaking weather conditions. This is God’s warning that this rapture event will happen in the near future.

We do not know the day or the hour so you need to be ready so you are not left behind.

Mayor overstepped his bounds in commission appointment

To the editor,

What a sad event for the city of Port Orchard that Lary Coppola appointed his wife to the planning commission. I feel strongly that he overstepped his bounds by doing this.

This just proves to me why he was defeated in his bid for re-election. Just another incident that burns the people of Port Orchard up. Kathy Michael was right in saying it is tragic. It really is tragic for us to think he would be so arrogant to think people would agree to this action.

It is also tragic the the few city council members that were there for the Tuesday afternoon session voted to sustain his wife for 6 years. Does he dare think that Mayor Mathies is so incompetent that he can’t pick his own people.

After all, he was on the planning commission and knows this business.
