Let us look to the future
Dear Editor,

This new year, 2021, did not start out well.

Are we going to keep saying things critical with one another? How about our attitude toward others? Harmony requires working together and building each other up. Let us give to all people the steadfast love, faithfulness in our lives. We have to pray for faith and hope for these people.

Recent poll was 'dismaying'
Dear Editor,

I am really dismayed to see the results of the Readers Poll last week asking if people thought the Biden/Harris election was valid. That 67% of those who responded think it was a fraud is both sad and frightening. Would it be possible to include with these results the number of people who responded? I know that poll numbers, especially percentages, can be misleading, but if this is indicative of the beliefs of two-thirds of the population, how are we ever to achieve unity?

Draws a frightening conclusion on shots
Dear Editor,

I want to say this is my personal feelings doing this article.

There was a movie made over 50 years ago that was called "Soylent Green." People over the age of 65 who were non workers and not essential were herded up and killed and made into a supplemental food for the rest of the world. They were called "Soylent Green."

Hypocrisy upsets him
Dear Editor,

Blacks can riot, blacks can burn, They can loot and destroy at every turn. But from Democrats in Washington, you'll see no concern. But let a conservative do the same and the Democrats in Washington says it's a grave concern. Dexcuse me the Democrat hypocrisy made me puke.

She's honored to be in such great company
Dear Editor,

I was pleasantly surprised to find my name listed in the Celebrating Prominent Women of Jennings County, Indiana article in the North Vernon Plain Dealer and Sun.

It is quite an honor to be recognized along with so many women who have left a mark on our community. I appreciate all the work the community members and organizational members put into compiling the list and recognizing the 19th Amendment Centennial. This had to be quite a daunting task!

We need compassion, compromise
Dear Editor,

We are treating the violence which is only a symptom rather than treat the problem of the disease of fear, anger, and distrust.

The country is in turmoil and the media giants are having a hayday stirring it up and making news. News such as this sells papers but just what was the issue that provoked a planned expression of the freedom to demonstrate and speak out on a political issue into a riot and assault on the capital. Fortunately, we have many politicians and news commentators to point fingers of blame at the president and his followers.

Likes the tribute to JC women
Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the committee who worked so hard to put together the list of the last 100 years of outstanding women. I agree with all choices.

Fake meat good choice
Dear Editor,

With the "year of Covid'" barely behind us, we look forward to the New Year and the customary resolutions: reduce personal weight, reduce time on social media, and reduce consumption of animal foods.

Christmas is a promise from God
Dear Editor,

Let us go back in time; do you remember the excitement you felt about Christmas when you were a kid? Before the big day, you probably checked out all the tags on the gifts to find out which ones were yours and shook each one trying to guess what was inside. When Christmas morning finally arrived you couldn't wait to tear the wrapping paper off so you could play with your new toys.

We need a cultured meat
Dear Editor,

As the pandemic continues to tear through the country, now is the time for Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young to support federal funding for cultured-meat research. For those who don't know, this revolutionary protein is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals. Since nonhumans are removed from the process, the risk of another outbreak of zoonotic disease would be significantly reduced.

NV Utilities answers queries about those checks that went missing
Dear Editor,

This is also to the customers of the North Vernon Municipal Utilities.
Unfortunately, there were a small batch of check payments from the night drop that were mistakenly thrown away in late November. This has caused those payments to not be processed.

Wants to clarify 'we the people'
Dear Editor,

I've found it difficult to write this letter; after all, I'm "blind, deaf and dumb."

This letter is in response to the letters from "A Reader" and "Worried About America."

Dear Editor,

It's the love that matters, not how family was first formed
Dear Editor,

The story about the adoptive family was beautiful and heartwarming.
Jennings county I doubt isn't vastly different from any other county or community when you think about the vast numbers of blended families.

Setting facts straight
Amazing headline! ("'Political witch hunt' ends," Plain Dealer, Sept. 20.)
Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Unsurprising bias
Wow, that headline is about what we'd expect from the bias prevalent at this newspaper.

Transportation Dept misses the point
Why even bother posting an image of the route maps?

Gathering signatures for Henry Street sidewalk
I am a North Vernon resident who lives on Henry Street, and I am writing to publicly request the city build a sidewalk or other pedestrian path on the section of Henry Street west of St. Vincent Jennings Hospital to Brookside Drive.
