Note to Trumpites

Dear editor: I should like to tell Donald Cunningham (his letter of March 20) "No, no, Donald, you are the one who should grow up!" You should have been demonstrating responsibility and still should be of selecting a leader who is not a sexual predator, a defrauder of students, a liar (Trump is so bold he lies without batting an eye), a draft dodger (he bought himself out of 'Nam four times and now pretends to loves veterans), and a denigrator of women, those of minority religion, the handicapped and even true war heroes like John McCain.

Congratulations, Mr. Wells

Dear editor: I would like to congratulate Mr. John Wells for his leadership at the Garland County Library for the past 30 years. When I retired to Hot Springs from Maywood, Ill., the library was located on Woodbine Street. The library under Mr. Wells' leadership has become more than just a library, it is a learning center to all citizens of all ages. It is a real joy to go to the library, whether one is checking out books, reading the many newspapers, buying books in the thrift store or getting the free informational materials, it is a real joy to go to the library!

Presidential attitude

Pronoun errors

Dear editor: Mr. Ames wrote more regarding "ongoing sinning." He stated, "Jesus does command us to be perfect." In the text, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48), Mr. Ames assumed that the pronouns "ye" and "your" refer to Christians in general. He is incorrect; Yeshua (Jesus) was speaking to the Jews (regardless of faith or lack of it). Proper pronoun identification in the Bible is vital. So many errors occur because of wrong identifications of the pronouns.

How companies can stay ahead of the cybersecurity curve

If you're like me, on a given day you interact with a whole range of connected technologies for work and play. Just today, I used Box to share and download files for work, called up Tile to find my keys, relied on Google Maps to run an errand while streaming a podcast to my AirPods, and connected via Skype with a colleague overseas. And that was all before lunch. As we interact with technology of all sorts, what security safeguards should we expect from the companies building the Internet of Everything?

Options slim after defeat of Arkansas highway plan

LITTLE ROCK -- The defeat of an effort to put a highway initiative on the Arkansas ballot next year shows how difficult it will be for any plan to raise new revenue in a Legislature that's turned increasingly conservative and anti-tax. The loss leaves highway advocates few options for finding new ways to close a growing funding gap.

Radios raise questions

Dear editor: Today's The Sentinel-Record (March 15 edition) had an extensive article on Garland County's new radio system. It seems probable the need is there, but there are obvious questions.
