OPINION
October 18, 2017


Wayside board doesn't care
Dear Editor,
Are you kidding? The Wayside Inn board shuts down the food distribution and clothing ministries and squeezes out the founders not even a month after the Lowe's Heroes finished the renovation of the facility?

Democratic accomplices
Dear Editor,
I am sick and tired of Democrats being so unpatriotic that they would rather disparage Presi­dent Trump than show their support for our flag, our country and our service men and women.

President needs our prayers
Dear Editor,
To those people that say President Trump is not a leader, you are wrong.

For more mental health help
Dear Editor,
As I watched the news the past few days about the Las Vegas tragedy, I realized the urgent need for mental health reform.

Do farm animals merit our compassion and respect?
Dear Editor,
We are a nation of special observances. There is even a World Day for Farm Animals, which was just observed this week on Oct. 2 - Gandhi's birthday. Apparently it's intended to memorialize the tens of billions of animals abused and killed for food.

Judge: CASA volunteers make difference for children
As a circuit court judge, I preside over cases involving local children who have entered into the child protection system after becoming the victims of child abuse or neglect - a set of circumstances which has become all too frequent in recent years.

We don't need a new jail
I am writing because of the question of, just why do we need a new jail?
The answer is a simple one! If the deputies would leave their patrol cars at the station instead of using them for personal use or taking them home with them, we wouldn't need a jail.

Gun owner wants refund on license
A real pain about all of this is that when I go into one of those meaningless gun-free zones for a few minutes, I have to legally secure my firearm in my car before entering the building. That also means if I have a family member in the car and they don't have a license, I can't leave them in the car with the gun. But these are the same people I leave in my house with the gun.

Have we actually forsaken God?
God, why have You forsaken us?
Is it because of radical left-wing groups, Demo­crats and Republicans who don't work with President Trump?

'Great' bicentennial series
Dear Editor,
I started taking the Plain Dealer & Sun after you wrote a column about me six months ago. (Re: "Engineer's inventions helping rebuild Haiti," The Sun, Feb. 21.)

Many kinds of racists
Dear Editor,
There are many kinds of racists. A racist can be someone who puts others down for the clothes they wear, for the money they make and the religion they follow.

No reason why Bruce Hill Bridge had to be closed
Dear Editor,
I don't live near Bruce Hill Bridge in Campbell Township but from what I've seen, the road didn't have to be closed now. (Re: "Bridge work closes road," Plain Dealer, Sept. 7.)

NV Police officers' advice to caller 'saved my life'
Dear Editor,
I was attacked a few months back. Most days I am OK but there are days I am not so well.
One of those days was Friday, Sept. 1. I called my doctor's office at 8:01 a.m. asking for help. The nurse who returned my call was rude and hateful. She even told me that everyone would be happy if I offed myself. I was upset and called every number I could think off to get this nurse's name that I still do not have.

'Aggressive' rumble strips needed at intersection
Dear Editor,
I have read many articles in your newspaper as well as comments from Facebook about this so-called dangerous intersection (U.S. 50-SR 750-CR 40W).
I am a retired cross country irregular route trucker. I figure I have driven over 4 million miles. At one time or another I have traveled all of U.S. 50 from the Atlantic to the Pacific. I cannot imagine how this wide open, well-marked intersection can be so dangerous.

A slap on the hand
Dear Editor,
This is in reference to the sentencing of the former Jennings County government employee. (Re: The Sun, Sept. 5.)
I don't care about her past. I'm concerned about what she did: stealing! She absolutely stole money from us.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

What a joke
Dear Editor,
If everyone was sentenced like the person who stole $57,646.54, we wouldn't need a new jail.
What a joke. What an injustice.

Does incompetence reign at Dept. of Transportation?
May I extend to Indiana Department of Transportation a crescendo of hisses as the INDOT designed "whack a Hoosier" intersection, U.S. 50/SR 750, has wreaked havoc once again?
Wednesday, September 6, 2017

City's policy of towing off old vehicles is wrong
I help a person that goes around the city picking up junk. I don't receive any pay for it, but that's no gripe.
Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Can more house arrests reduce need for new jail?
I have a question. And no, I have not researched this so I am not making any statements about whether it is a viable option or not.
Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Common sense, logic needed in planning new jail
Dear Editor,
If I was appointed "jail czar," I would not have public meetings. Regard­less of what I decided, a third of the people would approve, a third would oppose and a third could care less.
