OPINION
November 14, 2019


Trying to find perspective as risks loom on horizon
Dear Editor,

Here's a suggestion to the intelligent men and women of this community. (This includes a local lawyer I had contact with on FB.) Read the article in the Smithsonian Maga­zine this month entitled "Behind the Lines" by Greg Miller, the untold story of the secret U.S. mission to capture priceless mapping data held by the Nazis.

Why I am disappointed in the teachers' union
Dear Editor,

This is my personal opinion. As a young boy growing up in New Castle, I believed all my teachers walked on water. However, I feel that the teachers' union could have handled their rally coming up next week in Indianapolis a lot differently.

A World War II soldier's story
Dear Editor,

My uncle and my dad's brother, Kenneth Miles, was in the Army during World War II. He was trained to be in the medical corps but he was not a medical doctor. He said he drove an ambulance while he was in Europe. His job was to pick up the wounded and fatalities and take them to a medical facility behind the lines. He gained the nickname "Doc" while he was in the service.

Ready to vote for Biden
Dear Editor,

I want to make it clear that I am not a Democrat or a Republi­can. I am an American citizen. I simply watch and listen. I base my views and vote on whomever shows me that he or she is for the American people.

Dems fail on national debt
Dear Editor,

"Free health care for all" is estimated by some economists at $32.4 trillion. The left claim they have a plan to pay for this. They don't. But once again the Democrats have predictably put the cart before the horse for the sake of pie-in-the-sky votes, and then back to their career vacation.

Are car washes exempt?
Dear Editor,

Re: "City stresses water conservation," The Sun, Oct. 22. So they threaten to fine or disconnect you if you wash your car in your own driveway. Are the commercial car washes and professional detailers shut down, or is it business as usual?

Bring back 'chirping' at jail
Dear Editor,
Big hisses to the Jennings County Jail, the sheriff and the staff for eliminating the cheapest form of communication available to the inmate population, the "chirping" texting devices, all in order to increase the jail's profits off e-cigarettes and commissary items.

Kisses and hisses

Why do we seemingly never change in America?
Dear Editor,

My head is filled with random thoughts. I'm watching "Country Music," Ken Burns' excellent documentary series about the life and growth of the history of America in song and the artists' lives that made it. It is like looking at a family picture with all the young and old, the big and little, good and bad, rich and poor.

More information needed on food inspection reports
Dear Editor,

Where are dates or time period for this report? (Re: "Health Department releases food inspection report," The Sun, Oct. 8.)

Hated by the establishment
Dear Editor,

Democrats love to repeatedly point out that being a whistleblower is a patriotic duty. Indeed it is.

So pointing out all the rampant and real corruption of the Bidens, as well as the entire Obama administration, has now made Donald Trump the most patriotic whistleblower of all time!

NV youth makes most of Holiday World tickets
Dear Editor,

To all the newspaper people at the Plain Dealer & Sun:
Thank you for the Holiday World/Splashin' Safari tickets.

An example for all of us
Dear Editor,

I went shopping at Walmart the other day and found there was a Hispanic woman working there.

I went up to her and asked her if she is a Mexican National. She said yes. I told her I was glad she was in the States. She told me thanks.

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.
