OPINION

Good Samaritan Law explained
Dear Editor,
I am writing in reference to the recent article titled "Senator: Help is available to fight Jen­nings County drug epidemic" (Aug. 28, The Sun).

Special balanced budget referendum is 'garbage'

True American values
Dear Editor,
I believe that I am going to keep the Oct. 11 issue of the Plain Dealer as a souvenir. Finally, some great letters to the editor of true American values that made my heart soar and makes me anxious to vote.

GOP chair praises record of Jennings County clerk
Dear Editor,
I finished reading the letters to the editor written by the current Democratic Party chairman and the former Democratic chairwoman regarding Clerk Mary Kilgore (Oct. 11).

Why no corrective action at county election office?
Dear Editor,
It is shocking that there has been no corrective action taken to address the errors in the election office to avoid the loss of votes due to those errors.

Election worker's integrity
Dear Editor,
I tip my hat to Sandy Bussell. I have realized for some time that she is a woman of integrity and competency. Her steadfast honesty and quiet dignity in the face of adversity are traits I have tried to emulate as long as I have known her.

Responsibility falls on the clerk
Dear Editor,
The election office has one Democratic and one Republican worker to provide a checks and balance system that should eliminate any party favoritism.

Agrees with Socrates' friends
That was a very good open letter in the advertisement ("Jennings Jail Alterna­tives") in the Thursday, Sept. 27, Plain Dealer regarding the new, big, expensive jail.

Don't add taxes for jail
The county commissioners want a new jail. Why a new one? Why not use what we already have?

'Skewed news coverage'
The Jennings County Republican Party has become accustomed to the Plain Dealer's skewed news coverage in favor of the Democrats, but the article regarding the Democratic protesters at the Lincoln/Reagan Day Fall Dinner at Willow Lakes Event Center leaves out some important eyewitness accounts of what really happened.

Wasting tax dollars at State and Walnut?

Animal Control: We make amends
Dear Editor,
This is a response to Bryce Jackson's letter

Tale of scared kitten found in NV
Dear Editor,
After the experience I had with Jennings County Animal Control on Aug. 28, I am starting to have my doubts about the bells, whistles, perks and privileges that Animal Control really needs. This was six days after the announcement was made in the paper that the officers were to be armed.

Look who's going vegan
Dear Editor,
As "The Big Bang Theory" CBS-TV's juggernaut rolls into a record 12th season this week, most of the gang exploring mysteries of the universe have gone vegan, opting for plant-based eating.

Fly the American flag appropriately or not at all
Dear Editor,
I applaud the City of North Vernon, the Avenue of Flags program and the North Vernon Kiwanis Club for wanting to be patriotic, placing Ameri­can flags out in front of business and homes, along the Highway 750 bypass and putting up a flag pole at the junction of Highways 7 and 3 by Auto Zone on certain holidays.

Why won't Pence debate?
Dear Editor,
One of the frustrating pieces of campaigning in a gerrymandered Con­gressional district in 2014 was the refusal of the incumbent Republican to meet and debate issues.

A poetic tribute to a hero
Dear Editor,
This is an open letter to the family of Master Sgt. Charles H. McDan­iel. (Re: "Korean War solider identified," The Sun, Sept. 25.)

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

The criminality score
Dear Editor:
Philip S. Hammers­ley's recent letter, "The 'good' administration of Obama" (Aug. 23), provided a great amount of information which I had never heard of before. Perhaps the reason is because most of his "facts!" have only a tangential relationship to the world that I and most other people live in.

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Alternate plan will work
Dear Editor,
I have listened to (Jennings County Council member Howard) Mal­comb's idea about the jail and I think it will work. (Re: "Jail hearing will be heated," Sept. 13.)

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Animal Control officers should not have side arms
Dear Editor,
This issue of Jennings County Animal Control officers having side arms sounds to me like a shooting waiting to happen. By this I mean they're animal control, not law enforcement.
