In regards to your STUPID editorial in last Friday's Free Press, I have a few statements which might be of interest to you. But since you are so prejudiced, I doubt If you even read this, or have guts enough to print it then. As far as rodeo being a sport, show me any competition which has more sportsmanship than rodeo! Every man, woman and child who competes in this sport gives every competitor every break possible. They tell if a calf /kicks, runs straight, ducks off, etc. ..The same with steers, in roping and dogging. They help each other with the buck- frig stock, getting out of the chutes, even so far as to turn a horse or bull .back for another man, which will mean more points and lessen their own chances of winning. How many of your so called other sports will do the same? Barrel racers are the same way, loaning equipment, advising as to slick ground etc. Rodeo is the only profession where a man or woman pays an entry fee for a chance to compete against another. They receive no guaranteed wage and if they have tough luck there is no consolation prize to help out. This is a sport where the best man wins, and believe me, they are men. If you have any doubts, step behind the chutes and mouth off like you did in your column! Their Cowboy Boots might not be called athletic equipment, but It is deductable on income lax, as well as their expenses, so It's the same difference isn't itl The worst problem with rodeo is people like you, you have the facilities to speak out against it, without knowing a thing about it and humane societies are just as bad! Rodeo stock Is better cared for than most animals anywhere, and they are not forced to buck they do It because they like It. There are many horses 20 years old, fat as pigs and bucking boys off right and left. Show me a race horse that age and many that are younger than can walk let alone buck a man off! Many of us do not approve of the money spent for a STAR, we feel it could be better used by the real stars, the cowboys! Of course, it's people like you who go to a rodeo, only to see the star who push the issue. At least the people who walch the star, watch the rest of the rodeo and make for more fans. Sure, everyone goes western, why not, it's once a year and it's big business. Cowboys go western everyday, it's only town folks who join in the fun. Furthermore, show me a cowboy in any of these ignorant protest marches! Too bad you can't come down off your high liorse (excuse Ihe phrase) you might find yourself enjoying real people! Yours for better rodeo, Mrs. Virg Vail Across the Counter Not long ago the f a m o u s columnist, Ann Landers, answered a question as to why t professional man couldn't apply his knowledge to his own personal life. Said Ann: "Another case where the shoemaker's kids are going barefoot. I have repeatedly pointed put toe difference between possessing know-how and having the ability to apply it to one'sWe." Ann added, as a further example, "I know a bright insurance man whose home was vandalized, and he was not covered." In all phases of life, many more examples could be given of people who don't "practice what they preach." But, frankly, it is inexcusable in the insurance field. If the "bright insurance man" had one of the popular Homeowners policies --which we certainly advocate --his loss would have been covered when his home was vandalized The Homeowners policy offers many other features -- a whole package of coverages. We would be glad to explain the advantages of a Homeowners policy to you! (Yes! We do own a Homeowners. It's actually tha 1 GOOD!) Why not call abou: it?
