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.

Grossly uninformed left
Dear Editor,
After last Thursday's all out assault on our amazing president by the naive and grossly uninformed left, I must again stand and respond to their written garbage.
Why is it President Trump's fault that a federal law enacted by Bill Clinton and enforced by him and the next two presidents is being enforced?

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Supporting restoration
Dear Editor,
I am a strong believer that history and the heritage of some of North Vernon's and Jennings County's finest and most beautiful architecture should be preserved for the enjoyment of current and future generations.

'Old house is done for'
Dear Editor,
I have been reading a lot lately about the historic Cone-Schuck house.
Why rebuild a house where most every board in it is rotten and is falling down?

Still not impressed
Dear Editor,
My letter to to the editor ("Don't sass CSL without looking at yourselves first," May 17) was aimed at all those people who degrade Country Squire Lakes and the people who live here with their comments on social media that have been printed in this newspaper.

Trump voters 'should be ashamed'
Dear Editor,
Ever since this Trump character decided to run for the highest government office in our country, I've been writing thousands of words in an attempt to get you Trump worshipers to do some research into just what kind of person this man is. You never did.
