    To the editor: I felt compelled to respond to the news item concerning the pastor who was giving thanks to the school teachers and staff. If I understand correctly, Mr. Joudry was not promoting any particular religion.

    To the editor: I want to respond to the letter sent to two of our school systems by a group based in Wisconsin concerning the separation of church and state.

    Many years ago, one lady and her son set out on a mission to make sure there was no mention of God or no prayer allowed in our schools under penalty of sanction.

    To the editor: As we celebrate the founding of our nation next week, we have many things to be thankful for, but most of all it is the freedom to choose that is paramount to our way of life.

    To the editor: Over the past several weeks we, the family of Bob Kring, have attended three different ceremonies where his memory has been honored and celebrated.

    To the editor: This is in response to the June 17 article about church-state separation. While reading the article I picked up on three main points. The first is that someone that had no business with what was happening on these in-service days stuck their nose where it did not belong.

    To the editor: I read with interest the article promoting this year’s Riverfront Wine, Stein and Barrel event. Proceeds from the event go to the Madison Riverfront Development Commission and I think they do good work for Madison.

    To the editor: Two groups have organized to construct/improve city parks and both are worthy endeavors. The Walnut Street Initiative would transform an abandoned parking lot into a homage/memorial to Underground Railroad conductors with a bronze bust of major conductor George DeBaptiste at a projected cost of $77,000.

     
  • Wednesday, May 20, 2015 3:00 PM

    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.

     
  • Thursday, April 23, 2015 3:00 PM
    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.

     
  • Wednesday, April 08, 2015 3:00 PM
    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.
