Genesis of NV's city pool
I am pleased that the community leaders will build a new swimming pool. Perhaps, many do not know the genesis of the present North Vernon swimming pool built in 1964.

Family over government
It's August and our do-nothing Congress is on vacation again, but be forewarned. They will be returning and rest assured that health care will again be front and center.

Thank you Mr. President
Dear Editor,
As we will never hear the facts from CNN or our local paper, let an informed citizen just say, "Thank you President Trump!"

Health insurance issues
The media seem to be leaping for joy because our fractured Congress is unable to find a way correct the issues with the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

No one has the right to judge
This is in reply to Molly B. (Re: "Don't blame Trump people," July 27.)
There are many kinds of disabilities that can't be readily seen such as epilepsy, mental problems and, like me, being legally blind. You voted for Trump, but I don't put you down for a mental problem.

Greatest invention is the flush toilet
I have pondered the age-old question, "What is the greatest invention in history?" After much soul searching, I have concluded that it is the flush toilet.

Why ban euchre at center?
I am writing this in protest of the current ban on euchre at the Jennings County Senior Center.

Library drop box dilemma
Once again, I'm addressing my dilemma with the Jennings County Public Library's drop box.

Director: There is no ban
There is no euchre ban at the Senior Center. Seniors are more than welcome to play euchre, bridge or whatever for the joy of spending time with friends.

Insurance important for all
Well, here we are, still in a mess. The men and women of the Republican and Democratic parties need to see themselves as plain people and stop thinking they are better than others. You are only as good as you can be.

Don't blame Trump people
This is in reply to "Worried about losing Medicaid" (July 20).
How is it the Trump people's fault that you didn't have life insurance on your mother to pay funeral and burial expenses? What makes you any different than the rest of us taking care of our elders and their needs?

Please don't gut Medicaid
For the people who voted for Trump and support the move to gut Medicaid, I can't wait until you end up in a nursing home, lose your savings and your land, and your family takes over your nursing home payments. Then your family will lose everything they have, too.

Libraries and drop boxes
Dear Editor,
Re: "Move library's drop box," July 13.
The Osgood Library, Versailles Library and Greensburg Library have drop boxes inaccessible to a car. The Madison-Jefferson Library's box isn't accessible either, but they also have a drop box in the Walmart foyer at Madison.

The emperor has no clothesDear Editor,
Since November I have read with interest those letters to the editor written supporting the current president of our beleaguered country.

God and 'Donald Drumpf'
To the writer of the letter "Trump lies about Medicaid" (July 6).
Why would god, if there is one, be angry at you for writing this?

Move library's drop box
I would like to address an issue I've had with the Jennings County Public Library for a few years now.
When we first opened the new facility - which I feel is awesome! - I used the drop box located in the parking lot very frequently. OK, it was not conveniently placed as one had to make a sharp turn and then pull between the box and a parking spot.

Raise your sleeve, please!
This is an open letter to my fellow Hoosiers.
Following the Fourth of July weekend, the state's blood supply is at a critically low level - meaning that there is not enough blood for patients, most who are recovering after an incident or fighting diseases, at Indiana hospitals.

One bird deserves another
As I was driving south on State Road 3 recently, I came up behind a young man driving a moped.

State should maintain old U.S. 50 after bypass is done
I have concerns about the new U.S. 50 Bypass being constructed around North Vernon.
How can Jennings County and the City of North Vernon stand by and let the State of Indiana dump U.S. Route 50 maintenance and make it a county road and city street?
