    Many area businesses are looking forward to Friday’s 4-H livestock auction. The auction is an example of agriculture and commerce coming together to support the hard work of the 4-H members. Over the years, it has become an honor for a business to participate in the auction.

    The Jefferson County 4-H Fair has begun, and we agree that it’s one of the best parts of summer. We see families enjoying quality time together. We see young and old interacting and having a great time. Most importantly, we see youngsters who have dedicated themselves to the 4-H mission.

    To the editor: It’s readily apparent which side of the political sense The Madison Courier favors. On two consecutive days this week, you’ve published very nasty, extremely ugly and distasteful, completely-without-a-hint-of-class cartoons about Hillary Clinton.

    The message was simple, but in the midst of a presidential campaign filled with mean tweets, name-calling and a general air of nastiness, it sounded downright revolutionary — and refreshing. Be kind. Practice compassion.

    To the editor: First, I do not know a bigot. I sometimes think I spot acts of bigotry. I particularly try and identify in my own behavior acts that may be construed as discriminatory and invasive into other people’s space. So, Dr. Kruger, I will have to take issue with what you describe as a “scientific view on transgenderism.”

    To the editor: It seems a strong majority of Americans are perplexed and upset with the very recent letter sent by the Obama Administration to every single public school in America, notifying teachers and administrators of the regulations they must comply with in regards to their students’ gender identity.

    To the editor: Let us stop the madness for a minute. What we have here is a solution in search of a problem. I am referring to the recent edicts from the government that transgenderism is a civil right and we need to let bathrooms be used irrespective of biological sex.
