OPINION

Don't sass CSL without looking at yourselves first
Dear Editor,
How dare the people of Jennings County say such offensive things about Country Squire Lakes. For years we have been the dumping place for the people you don't want to rent to in North Vernon. Plus there's not enough housing in North Vernon for low- to moderate-income families.

'Derangement syndrome'
Dear Editor,
I am awfully tired of the Trump derangement syndrome that all the Democrats and liberals exhibit. No matter how many praiseworthy things he accomplishes, they never give him credit for them.
Our president has a gay ambassador to Ger­many, a woman ambassador to the United Nations, a female Edu­cation Department secretary, a black secretary of Housing and Urban Development, female secretary of Homeland Sec­urity, and a female secretary of Transportation, who is of Chinese descendants.

What a shame that historic home has come to this
Dear Editor,
What a shame ... That a family allowed a once beautiful, formidable Victorian home to decay to the point that it has sparked questions, debate and anger on both sides in the discussion of its future.

Jail and common sense
Dear Editor,
When I served in office, I tried to use a common sense approach to do the best for the public at the least cost to the taxpayer. This should be everyone's goal.

'Haters Club'
Dear Editor,
It was sad to see that our esteemed editor has now officially joined the "Haters Club" (re: "Kisses and hisses," May 3). He evidently supports the gross, mean-spirited "show" from Michele (Jackal) Wolf at a recent publicly broadcast event.

Respect our president
Dear Editor,
I say hisses to the Democrats for not supporting any of President Trump's appointments or any of the ambassadors to other countries.

Helping our environment
Dear Editor,
With the recent 50th observance of Earth Day, each of us can contribute by reducing our driving, use of electric energy and consumption of animals.
Yes, that.

Wisdom, hope and love, not anger, fear and hate
Dear Editor,
So where do we go as a country from here? If you are reading this in the newspaper and not online, you still have a responsibility.
Those who attended the event for former Congressman Lee Hamil­ton last week were blessed by his wisdom.

Demolishing a piece of our history
Dear Editor,
"The time has come to remove this blight on our streetscape." "The front and back are in a most terrible condition." "It's a disgrace to our community." "This place is way beyond repair." "There will still be plenty of other old buildings left." "This building has served its purpose." "Let's just tear it down and move on."

Bring community together to preserve home
Dear Editor,
Unfortunately, I have only learned of this issue recently (re: "APC fails to 'see beyond stuff' and votes to raze historic home," Plain Dealer, April 19). I was not able to attend the Area Plan Commission meeting because I was in Wyo­ming.

Shame on APC
Dear Editor,
Well, this saddens me (re: "APC fails to 'see beyond stuff' and votes to raze historic home," Plain Dealer, April 19).

Bring back Muscatatuck Country Club golf course
Dear Editor,
This is not a letter to the editor. It is a letter to our community!
I grew up in North Vernon when it was a thriving, happy and welcoming place.

Be extra careful on detour
Dear Editor,
I want to alert everyone who hasn't driven on it yet about the detour caused by construction of the roundabout on the west end of the bypass.

Veteran takes strong stand for Obama, Clinton
Dear Editor,
I want to address something that was told to me. A man stated to me that Mrs. Clinton and the former president, Mr. Obama, needed to be shot or run out of the country. I strongly disagree. Mr. Obama did a very good job while in office. Mrs. Clinton would have done a good job also!

Bakers' granddaughter happy to see house saved
Dear Editor,
I am so very happy to hear that this wonderful home is going to be saved. (Re: "APC OKs giving Indiana Landmarks chance to save historic home," Plain Dealer, April 5.)

Indiana legislators drop ball again on cigarette tax

Kudos to NVE, not JCSC
Dear Editor,
I am very proud of North Vernon Elemen­tary School and the North Vernon community for pulling together for this. (Re: "NVE wins playground grant," Plain Dealer, March 22.)

God, truth and politicians
Dear Editor,
I appreciate the courteous response from "Sleepless" ("Alligators in the swamp," March 22) to my letter to the editor. I believe we could be friends.

Jobs and drug tests
Dear Editor,
I am writing to make an observation after seeing the question from "Jess Wundren" in last week's Plain Dealer.
Tell Jess that the people without jobs don't want to take drug tests.

Don't breach lease on climbing gym
Dear Editor,
I started working for the Jennings County Parks and Recreation Department (JCPR) in mid-1991. I moved to the Muscatatuck Park facility at the end of the year. During that summer I had taken my college dorm loft/climbing structure and built a larger structure in my father's back yard in Columbus
