OPINION April 29, 2016

Looking out for the poor is not just a religious activity
The care for the poor is not just a religious activity. Civil society looks after the poor, or the potentially poor, through social welfare programs such as Social Security, Aid to Dependent Children, Sec­tion Eight housing, minimum wage laws and the like.

We are not electing a savior
We live in a constitutional republic. The Founding Fathers consciously established the United States of America on Judeo-Christian principles.

Food and the environment
With the 47th annual observance of Earth Day last Friday, April 22, this is a great time to explore more effective ways of slowing climate change and conserving Earth's natural resources for future generations.

Legislator disputes April 21 letter
Once again, I must respond to yet another letter to the editor full of misinformation. (Re: "Legis­lator misses opportuni-
ties," April 21.) Robin Ramp addressed some education issues and I would like to present the actual facts.

Bernie is getting 'Bern'ed
Is Bernie Sanders a wimp? The coronation of Hillary Clinton by the Democratic Party was decided from day one and Bernie simply goes through the motions of campaigning and does not fight to win.

Legislator misses opportunities
State Rep. Jim Lucas isn't sharing all the facts. In a recent column he wrote: "... The ISTEP was the only test that met the federal requirements." He implies that legislators had few choices because of the federal constraints of No Child Left Behind.

We must assume our responsibility as citizens
Dear Editor,
May and November have not always been months of celebration. In our younger years it was usually a struggle to find the money to pay the taxes, even though when we moved to Jennings County taxes went down.

Where are NVHS trophies?
This is more of a question than a comment. (Re: "50 years ago: Mighty NVHS Panthers," March 17.)

Bathroom humor and irony
Fond memories of a urinal trough? (Re: "$125K restroom at fairgrounds," The Sun, April 5.)

Former officials proud of their jobs
We are writing this as there have been false accusations made (North Vernon Sun, March 15, 2016) of not having things balanced in the Jennings County Treasurer's Office in the 28 years that I was employed there.

Who is the enemy here?
My letter is about my heartfelt concerns over the nonstop arguing between Cruz versus Trump supporters.

Ringing forth justice
Dear Editor,
This is a special problem in arrest and jailing.

America's leftward march
The institution most to the left, in an increasingly left-leaning United States, is the large university. It has long been known that conservative speakers are not welcome on the many state-run college campuses.

Legislator is 'divisive, misleading'
In a March 22 column in The Sun titled "Turning on the political heat," State Rep. Jim Lucas said that he attended Third House meetings to discuss differences and find "common ground," that he makes himself available to constituents and that he "will continue to be open and transparent."

Color Guard impressive
On Saturday, I had the privilege of attending the IHSAA boys basketball state finals to cheer on our hometown Lapel Bulldogs in the Class 2A game.

Too many ignore stop signs
I'm glad to see another person is complaining about people not stopping at the U.S. 50-SR 750 intersection. (Re: "Put camera on bypass," March 24.)
Wednesday, March 30, 2016

Denied little things in life
There is a time in one's life that a person or persons should take a stand. Many times we are afraid of the consequences or results of our actions. However, someone must speak up for those that cannot or will not for themselves.

Congrats, Bert
Dear Editor,
I'm just dropping a note for the Park Theatre Bluegrass Hall of Fame honor of 2016 going to Bert Corya.
It is a well deserved honor for a real good musician.

So much trash
One day two weeks ago on Hoosier Drive in Country Squire Lakes, there were several trash bags scattered along the road. The trash included at least one tire and a partial animal cage.

Put camera on bypass
We were coming from the west on the bypass the other day and three cars coming from the east (off old U.S. 50) did not stop (at the western intersection of U.S. 50 and SR 750)! Now I'm sure they could see us just fine because we could see them.
