Thanks, Matt
We have a new hero among our roster of public officials we admire and respect here in Jennings County. We've covered quite a few governmental meetings over the years we have been reporting news, with most of our attention in government being focused on the City of North Vernon.

Newspapers get my vote
There is more content available today about the upcoming election than likely in any previous cycle. While we could fill this page with media sources that have some type of information about the election, most people find their election information on social media (like Facebook and YouTube), cable news networks, major broadcast television networks, talk radio, major public broadcast networks, local television, national newspapers, local newspapers or news websites.

A new partnership
We are anticipating what will happen with the new "partnership" between the City of North Vernon and Historic Landmarks. An article in last week's and today's Plain Dealer & Sun reports how this historical preservationist group has been offered 504 East O&M Avenue by its present owner Jerry Greene, who said his plans to renovate the building became financially impossible because of the financial impact of COVID on his livelihood.

Elections are Fundamental
Elections are the hallmark of representative democracy. As a nation, we put a great deal of faith in elections, and the voting process. We abide by their results. Elections are fundamental to our system of government. We commit to a peaceful transfer of power to the election winners. Elections are the way we do business and make many key decisions.

A Lasting Legacy
No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States...nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." - the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution enacted in 1868 after the Civil War.

Let the sun shine bright
Amazing, but on the same day we had what can only be described as an angry conversation with a local person ostensibly about the Open Door Law, we received news that Richard Wyatt Cardwell, former executive director of the Hoosier State Press Association had passed away.

Why not us?
This column has featured many fictional characters during the past three decades. They have been the writer's device to ease the burden of reading economic information and unpopular ideas.

This week is different. Let me introduce you to Nervous Fergus and his buddy, Harrison. Both dogs live and travel with us.

Way to Go
Sometimes we need to take small victories where we find them. Given the many setbacks the virus has perpetrated on all of us, it would be easy to just say nothing good has come out of this horrible pandemic.

Thank You
We couldn't count the number of times we have covered the activities of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post here in North Vernon.

When our children were little, we would take them down to Vernon every Memorial Day as we covered the annual service for the Plain Dealer & Sun. The service was held to honor those men and women who died defending the freedoms we Americans exercise every day. The very fact you can read this editorial written by a local person or write an opinion letter and have it published are just two examples of the freedom we so often take for granted.
