Letters to the Editor

Stimpson family is grateful for support

While I have never met many of you, I want to let each and every one of you know that I, along with our young son, have been overwhelmed with your warm words of comfort and your generosity during our time of loss.

I always wondered why you are called “brothers,” and now I know. All of you are Terry’s brothers and you will forever be in my heart and prayers. Again, I thank you so very much and pray each of you stays safe.

Alex and Isaac Stimpson
Peculiar, Mo.

Striking L-726 seeks support

Lodge struggles to preserve jobs and seniority rights

MEMBERS OF Local 726 (Owensboro, Ky.) entered their second month of a strike against Daramic in September. The company manufactures battery separators. The 165-member lodge struck after five months of negotiations that hung up over vague company proposals to consolidate jobs and alter seniority rights.

“This has nothing to do with economics and money; it’s all about preserving the integrity of the union,” L-726 President Jeff Campbell told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer.
