Why do Trump supporters hate Obama so much
Dear Editor,
In response to Philip Hammersley's letter in the July 26 Plain Dealer ("'Repudiating' Obama"), I must ask if he even read the editorial he was complaining about? Mitt Romney was never mentioned in the July 19 editorial ("Please, Mr. President") and dates are very important when talking about facts.

Our athletes deserve much better
Dear Editor,
I was appalled by the article in The Sun reporting that the school board did not extend the contract of the JCHS athletic director. This man's credentials speak for themselves.

School board throws away talent
Dear Editor,
I sat in disbelief as I read the article about the Jennings County School Board not extending the contract of the Jennings County High School athletic director.

Global warning bites back hard
Dear Editor,
With scorching heat and raging wildfires in the West and torrential downpours and massive flooding in the East, global warming is not just about a gentle sea rise any more. These tragic consequences of dumping greenhouse gases into our atmosphere call for drastic remedies.

Criminalize drunk driving?
Dear Editor,
Re: "Don't encourage 'potheads'," Aug. 2.
Am I missing something? Do you mean to tell me that if we criminalized drunk driving, there would be no more drunk drivers? Someone should tell the legislature!

Unlike alcohol, marijuana doesn't hurt you at all
Dear Editor,
This is to the person who wrote the letter to the editor "Don't encourage 'potheads'" (Aug. 2).
I voted on the newspaper's web poll in favor of making marijuana legal in Indiana.
Why not make it legal? Marijuana is better than alcohol.

Disagrees about uranium
Dear Editor,
Re: " 'Repudiating' Obama," July 26.
Philip's statement that we sold Russia "20 percent of our uranium supply" is terrible inaccurate. In fact, I don't think the actual sales even reached 1 percent.
People should really check their facts and sources more carefully.

Make the world a better place
Dear Editor,
Though I am nobody, I thought I would write to encourage the many out there that just seem to be lost in the world.

Don't encourage 'potheads'
Dear Editor,
I voted "no" on the Plain Dealer & Sun's recent web poll that asked, "Do you think Indiana should follow other states and legalize marijuana?" [The final tally was 51 percent yes, 49 percent no.]
Marijuana should not be legalized.
Don't we have enough drunk drivers on the roads? Do we have to add the potheads?

Tree trimming on county roads raises complaint
Dear Editor,
Why did the Jennings County Highway Depart­ment workers come through Monday (July 23) and trimmed trees and just push the trash off on the sides of the road and onto private property?

'Repudiating' Obama
Dear Editor,
I was pleased to see that our esteemed editor has finally repudiated Barack Obama! ("Please, Mr. President," July 19.) By agreeing with candidate Mitt Romney that Russia is our No. 1 enemy, our editor is evolving.

Born to bring forth change
Dear Editor:
Congratulations to the Tea Party. The revolution you began is well on its way.
The U.S. billionaires and corporate greedy types have used their money to move your energy where they wanted it to go.

Support your JC music students
Dear Editor,
After a decade of service as an educator of Jennings County School Corp. and 15 years as an employee of the Jennings County High School Music Department, I will be closing this chapter of my career as I have accepted a position as Director of Bands at East Central High School.

Community pulled together in 1964
Dear Editor,
I have been organizing old photos, etc. and came across the file my father [Don Eggleston] had for the original city park swimming pool.
I have only done a cursory look, but have found some interesting information. It looks like the entire pool complex cost around $84,000. There are several quotes in the file.

Skepticism about Solar City's fields of dreams
Dear Editor,
Let's hope this solar project covering most of the city and established by the current North Vernon City Council will prove to be a good investment of taxpayer dollars.

Cone-Schuck home still has more class than most
Dear Editor,
I'm not sure of people's thoughts and views expressed recently in this newspaper about the old house [the Cone-Schuck home] on Jennings Street.

What's missing at the fair
Dear Editor,
This is food for thought for next year's Jennings County Fair.
I heard several people comment that there was not a Ferris wheel on the midway at this year's fair. To me, when I think of a midway, the first thing I think of is the Ferris wheel. It is usually the first ride you see from afar when you approach the fair because of the Ferris Wheel's height.

Road needs resurfaced
Dear Editor,
How do you get the Jennings County High­way Department to fix potholes on County Road 325 North east of Butler­ville?

What would Dems do?
Dear Editor,
As we are barraged with story after story of liberals lamenting the abuse of 2,300 children taken from parents who cross into this country illegally, conservatives scratch their heads.
