Reader gets right to the point about the heartbreak of gun violence

Every bullet breaks more hearts than the one it stops.

Those eligible for Medicare must ensure they have sufficient coverage

If you’re 65 or over or eligible for Medicare due to disability, developing a list of what you have spent on your health care this past year – including hospital expenses and prescriptions – and what you need to have in your health plan next year is an important step, as the 2.3 million Medicare eligible individuals in Ohio work to select their Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan coverage for 2022 by December 7.

I encourage anyone who is eligible to take the time now to ensure you have adequate coverage. Eligible beneficiaries should utilize trusted sources that can help you with this decision before the December 7 deadline.

Eligible individuals can visit www.Medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227). Additionally, you can learn about Humana Medicare Advantage plans, which are recommended by USAA, by going to www.Humana.com/Medicare or calling 1-800-213-5286 (TTY: 711) to speak with a licensed sales agent from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time, seven days a week.

Everyone should do unto others and they would have others do unto them

I write regarding the Nov. 19 article "Call to remove Black pastors angers many," about blocking Black ministers from the Ahmaud Arbery trial. Those who wanted to keep out only Black ministers just gave us another in the growing list of legal reasons why Critical Race Theory studies are needed.

The white, Christian/American power structure ought to practice the Golden Rule to treat non-whites as they would want non-whites to treat them.

The only way to get rid of the Critical Race Theory is by every person practicing this Golden Rule every single time they encounter another person. Otherwise, the CRT is here to stay.
