OPINION
October 18, 2017


Angst over WindStream
The uproar over WindStream Technologies is understandable but perhaps a bit overstated. The firm owes the City of North Vernon over $1 million, and many people are justifiably upset fearing that much of that will never be paid back.

Sensible gun measures
There are mass shootings almost daily in America anymore. The tragedies just keep piling up in most disgusting and horrific fashion.

A good shot in the arm
For many years, the Jennings County Health Department has offered vaccinations at discounted prices. These vaccinations are preventative measures to help safeguard citizens of all ages from such health maladies as measles and the flu. The childhood vaccination series provided by the health department in particular is a great service for the county.

Welcome bipartisanship

Tax sale is good boost
Half a million dollars is nothing to sneeze at, especially for Jennings County government that in recent years has been beleaguered by budget woes. So it is very good news that a county property tax sale last week netted over $568,000 for local government coffers.

Don't shortchange our student-athletes
The uproar is loud over the plan to upgrade two athletic fields at Jennings County High School, including installing synthetic turf, at a cost estimated at over $1 million. (See "Our readers respond on Facebook" on page 3A.)

Transgender ban unwise, devisive
f President Donald Trump was truly doing what he says he wants to do in healing divisions and uniting the country, he would not be issuing foolish directives essentially aimed at banning transgender individuals from serving in the military.

Make bypass safer
Despite multiple efforts by the state, changes made to enhance safety at the hazardous U.S. 50-SR 750-CR 400W intersection are not working as well as hoped.
