OPINION
September 22, 2019


Migrants are not animals
Dear Editor,

If the president can buy an island like Green­land, it definitely would not be cheap. So he can pay for that border wall himself he wants so badly instead of taking money from our military.

Make a choice to be happy
Dear Editor,

It has been a while since I wrote, but I would like to pass on a poem I wrote about choices to be made even when we feel like there is only one choice.

Let us never forget 9/11
Dear Editor,

When my pastor read his text Sunday evening from Psalms 78:42 this thought came to me, "We have failed but we can fix it!"

More new sidewalks and repairs are needed in city
Dear Editor,

I enjoyed reading the "25 years ago and longer" column in the Aug. 22 Plain Dealer and how John Hall was able to get some college kids to repair old and build new sidewalks in the summers.

Democrats facing long, hard road to 2020 election
Dear Editor,

Success is getting what you want. Happi­ness is wanting what you get.
Nancy Pelosi was successful in regaining her position as Speaker when the Democrats regained control of the House. Today, she has to be the unhappiest person in the country. As she assesses the problems Democrats have going into the 2020 election, I doubt she can even see any light at the end of the tunnel.

Metal detectors at schools
Dear Editor,

Every time I turn on the TV or read the news, I hear about kids bringing guns to school.

Over 10 years ago there was talk about putting metal detectors on the doors of the schools. The state then said that would cost too much. But look how many kids have died because the state wouldn't put in metal detectors at school entry ways. How many more kids are going to die
before this is done?

Farmers made bad mistake in 2016
Dear Editor,

I have a few simple questions for you farmers who voted for Trump back in 2016.

Did you enjoy the high prices of soybeans during the Obama administration? Soon after the Obama administration saved the world form a financial meltdown in November 2010, soybeans had risen to $13.25 a bushel. By September 2012, beans hit a high of $17.59. Profits were sky high and life was real, real, good.

The value of compromise
Dear Editor,

As I read the news or follow people on Face­book, I'm hurt by narrow-minded ideas. When I see opposing opinions, I look to try to find what is the source of their opinion or prejudices.

GOP's good, smart people
Dear Editor,

The letter to the editor by Thomas Smith ("We are all citizens of this world," Aug. 15) disgusted me so much, I almost vomited.

A two-tier justice system
Dear Editor,

Attorney General William Barr's announced decision to not pursue criminal charges against former FBI Director James Comey for taking classified information to his home has some commentators mystified, shocked and dismayed. It was reported FBI agents went to his home and retrieved the information.

Time for shift to plant-based eating
Dear Editor,

"Climate change threatens world food supply" was the lead story one day last week in leading newspapers. It was prompted by the release of a summary report by the United Nations Inter­governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), staffed by more than 100 experts from 52 countries.

Yearning for the old days of good governance
Dear Editor,

Congratulations to our esteemed AH Leader! Now you must decide what "AH" stands for. It could be "American Hero."

Now that this damaged human has been cornered, we see two distinct groups: Those who "believe" this is the Second Coming or those who have been labeled snowflakes, because evidently, the first group takes offense at the observations of the second group - like the observation that there is a constant inability of those who fall at the feet of our AH Leader to stand in the light of truth.

We are all citizens of this world
Dear Editor,

As I read one of the letters to the editor in the July 4 Plain Dealer ("Newspaper accused of political bias, censorship"), I realized why a small minority are still in love with Donald Trump. They don't know how to properly think. They don't reason things out using fact.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

What we really need is unity
Dear Editor,

I admit agreeing with the Democrats on some issues, especially racism. Racism is out of control. The hatred, violence, prejudice and discrimination directed towards white people must end.

In regard to diversity, the Left is consumed with the need for diversity.
But we have diversity and always will.

Confusion over some NV city street names
Dear Editor,

Fifteen years ago, the stretch of "Lincoln" between Gum and Norris used to be called an "Avenue." "Lincoln Street" was east of the railroad right-of-way, while the "Avenue" was west of it. When and why did this change?

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

Can we afford another 4 years of this president?
Dear Editor,

We are getting closer to the end of Trump's first term in office as President or more accurately as dictator over the American people. I say to this, "Hooray."

Thanks for coverage on astronaut, NVHS alumni
Dear Editor,

I would like to make a couple comments on articles in recent editions of the Plain Dealer & Sun.

Thanks to Bryce Mayer for his column on our cousin Gus Grissom. (Re: "Astronaut's NV connections," The Sun, July 16.) The man does not get the recognition he deserves and there were a lot of things said about Gus that were not factual.

Too many liars and racists
Dear Editor,

I hope Trump gets voted out of office next year. In fact, I think both sides should be thrown out. Both sides lie a lot. They will lie to get in office and once they get in they are for themselves. But most of them aren't racist like Trump.

Fill out survey to help Jennings Parks Dept.
Dear Editor,

To all Jennings County residents.

The Jennings County Parks and Recreation (JCPR) Department is requesting assistance in surveying the community about Jennings County's recreational needs. The survey is mandated by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources in our five-year master plan process.
