    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.

    We’ve written about this subject before, but with students returning to college campuses, it’s a message worth repeating.

    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.

    The smell of good food and the sound of great music will fill the air along Madison’s riverfront tonight and Saturday. The 14th annual Ribberfest returns to Madison, and organizers promise a great time for the entire family.

    The campaigning for next year’s elections is starting to draw more attention, and with it comes a focus on voters and their mood. Which is all well and good, but it leaves out of the equation one large bloc of citizens: people who are eligible to vote, but don’t.

    Last week brought us the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which outlawed discriminatory voting practices.

    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.

    The facts are indisputable. The number of Jefferson County children who are living in dangerous environments is growing, and many of those children need advocates to help them navigate issues no child should ever face.

    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.

    The most important function Congress serves is to debate and pass the federal budget. I know — it also levies taxes, imposes or relaxes regulations, and once in a while nudges our social, economic or political order in a meaningful way. But the budget tells the government what to do and makes it possible to do it. Everything else follows from that.

    There are about 16,000 school buses traveling Indiana roads, and according to statistics as the number of school buses on the road has increased so has the number of violations.
