OPINION
June 22, 2018


Preservering history
Hooray for saving notable historical buildings in Jennings County and elsewhere - especially while saving taxpayers some money at the same time.

Breakthrough hopes
Diplomacy obviously has always been much better than military entanglements in solving international conflicts. That's why it was so encouraging to see the historic face-to-face talks underway between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore this week, especially after all the dangerous rhetoric exchanged between the two previously.

A week full of fun
Next week's Jennings County Fair will be the earliest in recent history and perhaps the earliest ever. Only one other county fair in Indiana is being held as early as this one in 2018.

Just like brand new
Just in time for the 138th Jennings County Fair, the Community Building is open again after an extensive remodeling project. The building, which is the centerpiece of the fairgrounds, was formally dedicated with a ribbon cutting on Friday.

What public safety?
The Jennings County Council adopted the Local Option Income Tax, now called Local Income Tax (LIT), four years ago for two extremely important reasons.

Statehouse disgrace
Next week, members of the Indiana General Assembly will return to Indianapolis to convene a special session called by Gov. Eric Holcomb.
What a disgrace.

Hungry schoolchildren
It is hardly a secret that Jennings County is a poor county. Just look at our children.

Sad and shortsighted
Few if any issues have polarized people in the North Vernon area as the question as to whether or not to save the historic Cone-Schuck house at 305 South Jennings Street. Many want to see efforts to renovate it, and seemingly just as many believe the disrepair has gone on way too long and the house is simply beyond restoration.

Good plan for new pool
Since 1964, the North Vernon City Park has operated a public swimming pool. This summer, sadly, the pool will not be open for business.

Newsprint tariff bad for democracy
There are two things you need to know about newspapers.
