    The “Christmas in August Poker Run” was a huge success this year. We were able to donate $7,149.15

    We would like to say “thanks” to all those involved with the event. Without businesses donating, people selling and buying raffle tickets, T-Shirts, 50/50 tickets and riders donating their time, there is no way we could have raised over $7,000!

    To the editor: 

    I want to send out a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with the Summer Meals for Kids program this summer. This program, run by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana in cooperation with the local Clearinghouse and the Southwestern and Madison School Districts, served 3,543 free meals to children ages 1- 18 this summer. The program was offered because more than 50 percent of the children in Jefferson County depend on free or reduced lunches to meet their nutritional needs during the school year. When summer comes, they lose access to school meals and this puts a greater financial burden on families that are already struggling. So, to help those families, every weekday this summer, free lunches were taken out into the Hanover and Madison communities on minibuses provided by the school districts and handed out to children by volunteers.

    This is a thank you for all the people who helped so much in the weeks before the Jefferson County 4-H Fair began.

    To the editor: Your recent editorial call to voters to register is commendable, but many states allow registration same day as Election Day or a week earlier —?not no later than 29 days before an election like Indiana requires —?who is thinking about voting a month before Election Day? Even worse in Indiana you have to provide an excuse for wanting to vote early.

    To the editor: While the roundabout project at the top of US 421 may seem unnecessary to some, it should be noted the project is funded by the Indiana Department of Transportation — not local government.

    To the editor: The morning of July 2, my husband, Charles, returned home from work earlier than expected. As I heard the door open I asked if he was all right. He stated that he thought that he had had a heart attack.

    To the editor: I am a 71-year-old man, and I must write that I am very proud to live in the most beautiful and clean city as Madison is.

    To the editor: I have held my opinion to myself about actions of our government in Jefferson County long enough.

    To the editor: The Indiana state legislature wants a study to determine why education majors are dwindling in our universities. The understanding that they are searching for is well documented in the laws, regulations and contracts they themselves fought for the last dozen years.

    To the editor: Thank you for publishing the editorial in last week’s Courier about “Embracing the process of elections.” At a time when a lot of Americans are disillusioned about the electoral process nationally, it is still very important to encourage everyone to vote, particularly in local elections. The ability to go to the polls and cast a vote for the candidate that one feels will do the best job is a very important part of preserving our democracy and letting our voices be heard.

    To the editor: I invite anyone that is opposed to the roundabout to sign a petition that has been started. I noticed in many forums community members complaining about the roundabout that is being constructed, so I started a petition. I wanted to give those that were in opposition a voice. Some say that it is too late to change the project, but my thought is that we won’t know unless we try.

    To the editor: As the rector of Christ Episcopal Church, I would like to invite anyone affected by the recent flooding in Jefferson County to a Healing Service at our church, located at 506 Mulberry St., which will be held at noon Thursday.

    To the editor: On June 17 the Madison Courier featured headlines and lead story concerning a complaint against Madison Consolidated Schools and Southwestern School involving meals catered by members of the Madison Assembly of God for staff members from these schools during teacher in-service days.

    To the editor: This letter is in response to Susan Stamper-Brown’s column in last Thursday’s paper. I was aware of Communist ties to President Obama, but clueless that his close advisor, Valerie Jarrett, has strong family ties to the Communist Party as well. Stamper Brown referred to Ms. Jarrett as “Mr. Obama’s puppet-master ... the wind beneath his wings ... the real president.” Just a week earlier our President approved, if not initiated, the act of having rainbow lights shed on the White House. Where were the red, white and blue lights on July 4th?
