    To the editor: The board of directors and the volunteers at the Jefferson County House of Hope food pantry would like to thank the Madison, Hanover and Canaan letter carriers for participating in the National Association of Letter Carrier’s Food Drive.

    To the editor: I would like to extend my appreciation to Sheriff John Wallace and chiefs Thurston and Kroger for their recent drug interdiction efforts.  We are indeed fortunate in Jefferson County to have five canine units available for use in “sniffing” out our drug problem.

    To the editor: Late in the afternoon of this past Thursday as I drove along Vaughn Drive, I noticed a large group of young boys, teens, and older men assembled at the basketball court. My attention was drawn to several older men standing around the edge of the court. Their faces stuck in my mind.

    To the editor: I agree that voter turnout locally and statewide must be improved. Slashing the in-person absentee voting hours by 20 hours a week in Jefferson County is not the way to get more participation.

  • Friday, April 10, 2015 3:00 PM
    To the editor: I’m responding to the letter from Hanover College President (Sue DeWine) about RFRA. We are debating if people of faith can be forced to participate in ceremonies or practices that are against their religious beliefs.

    To the editor: I love newspapers. Have since I was a little child eons ago, when I learned to read the comics. Sometimes I wish your paper published only comic strip pages.

    To the editor: While I was happy to see the changes made to RFRA, they will have no effect until people can sue when they are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. That won’t be possible in most of Indiana until our state leaders add sexual orientation as a protected category in our anti-discrimination laws.

    To the editor: Madison is a small town with a quaint small-town appeal. Those that live here — or the majority of them — work, play, pray and survive with all their neighbors, friends and families. Why all of the sudden do we need to have signs that say we do this?

  • Friday, April 03, 2015 3:00 PM
    To the editor: Eighty-eight members of the faculty and staff of Hanover College have signed an open letter to Gov. Mike Pence (an alum and holder of an honorary doctorate from Hanover College), informing him that his recent support for, and signing into law of, a bill that provides protection for, an encourages those who would discriminate against gay and lesbian citizens of Indiana is antithetical to, and a violation of the values and principles of Hanover College...

    To the editor: I’m writing this concerning the letter about the death of Mark Holt. I was a friend of his mother and was familiar with Mark’s problems. His mother saw that he had the care and treatment that he needed, but she died and I have no idea what happened after that.

  • Wednesday, April 01, 2015 3:00 PM
    To the editor: Three weeks ago, I was in Atlanta, Ga. and revisited some of the many memorials to Martin Luther King, Jr. One leaves his tomb, the museum and his church with a heavy heart, remembering the sadness and inequality of our social environment at that time ...

  • Saturday, March 28, 2015 9:00 AM
    To the editor: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Jefferson County is appealing to the community to support Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the mentoring organization’s biggest annual fundraiser.
