Letter to the editor: Lack of ICU beds due to COVID is a tragedy
To the editor: I have held my tongue for months but can do so no longer. Yesterday, I read an article published in the Carbondale Times titled, "Number of available ICU beds critically low, as COVID spikes in region." After reading this article, I feel I must speak my mind about the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations for the health and safety of southern Illinois and for the preservation of our health care system. The article states that nearly all of southern Illinois' ICU beds are being used by unvaccinated patients who are critically ill with COVID-19. Let me be clear; the pain and suffering these patients and their families are experiencing is nothing short of a tragedy.

Letters to the editor: Not getting the vaccine is plain stupid
To the editor: I have been biting my tongue but I can't any longer. I must write about COVID. I am an old retired guy but the Carbondale community and Memorial Hospital mean a great deal to me. A doctor once told me as you age you become unfiltered but with me no one will ever know because I have always been unfiltered. I am sure my comments will offend some and for that I am sorry. There is no reason for us to be having a COVID problem. As a member of society we have a responsibility to our fellow man. We must protect each other. When you refuse to be vaccinated you are a threat to society, small children and medically compromised adults. You are a selfish threat.

Terriers try to revive offense against Orphans tonight
The History Channel says one of the greatest mysteries of mankind is the Navy's loss of planes over the infamous Bermuda Triangle in 1945. They disappeared without a trace. I say that mystery pales in comparison to the Carbondale Terriers football team's loss of their offense in a 38-14 head scratching "L" last Friday to Waterloo at Bleyer Field. Some say the Navy planes were abducted by aliens, but little green men can't explain the abduction of the usually potent Carbondale "O," which only garnered 288 yards and appeared to embody the famous saying, "Tis better to give than to receive."
