Ensure integrity of the vote
The article on registration and voting is very timely with our primary elections in March. (Five things Texans need to know about voting, Jan. 13.)
I have concerns about the integrity of the voting machines in Texas and nationally. What is being done, locally and nationally, to ensure that our voting systems are not compromised? It is imperative that time and money be spent to assure the accuracy of each vote counted.
President Trump has not assured us of this protection, nor our Congress or Senate. We need positive action to correct this, not denial.

TCU women’s b-ball team faces bias
With all the talk and revelations of sexual harassment, sometimes women are degraded by much more not so noticeable forms of discrimination.
For example, TCU has two basketball teams.
On Wednesday night the men’s team traveled to Austin, as did a reporter. That team lost but received a front page article along with a full color picture.
The women’s team played at home and defeated the seventh-ranked team in the nation. There was no one present to interview the players and coaches, and no picture of the end-of-game celebration.
A short article was written by the Associated Press and included on Page 2B. It may be subtle, but is a clear statement that women are not as important as men.
Improve lunches at FWISD schools
I am a working parent with two kids who have attended school in FWISD for almost eight years. From my first visit to our elementary school’s cafeteria until now, I have been disappointed in the quality of food offered. Although both of my kids were initially interested in the novelty of buying their lunch at school, they now insist on taking their own lunches every day.
While our family has chosen to take the time to make healthy lunches each day, I know there are many children who eat in the school cafeteria regularly. I have often thought about how great it would be if simple, high quality, healthy food were served. Great for those kids who eat it often and great for families like us who would like the convenience without sacrificing health. Could we make this a reality?
Overlooking Trump’s flaws
Those who voted for the President Trump knew what kind of man he was and voted for him anyway. They were willing to overlook the many flaws of this horrendous man because he would give them a tax cut or a Supreme Court justice, and this was all that mattered.
John R. Morris,
Make Trump one-and-done
Whether President Trump did or did not say the vulgar comment (s- - thole) reported is a moot point. He has proven he is more than capable of doing so, as shown by the way he belittles and bullies those who disagree with him.
Republican Party leadership needs to find a viable candidate now so that Mr. Trump eventually becomes a single term president. Failure on their part will again have me seeking a decent Third Party candidate. I have no tolerance for Mr. Trump’s behavior.
