    To the editor: Your Friday editorial, concerning gerrymandering and originally published in a Fort Wayne newspaper, makes a logical case for public re-drawing of congressional districts, instead of the every-10-year task being done by the political party with a controlling interest in a particular state.

    To the editor: Donald Trump is president elect. There is a thrust in political circles and the liberally biased media to discredit his presidency.

    To the editor: The Madison Teachers Association unanimously ratified this year’s contract with the Madison Consolidated Schools Corporation.
