    To the editor: Fred Farley loved hydroplane racing, and the Ohio Valley. And during his years of residence here, he had not only written volumes about the history of racing, and reported on the current races in Madison and elsewhere, but he made many, many friends in his adopted hometown.

    To the editor: Unfortunately, Robin Henderson’s letter to the editor last week substantially misrepresented and showed a complete lack of understanding of the goals and efforts behind Envision Jefferson County, a community-wide visioning process launched in 2014 and now in full implementation.

    To the editor: Nine self-proclaimed “Industry Leaders” funded a study that they dubbed “Envision.” They paid “Planning Next” of Columbus, Ohio, for the study by running the money through Midcor, a non-profit that they ostensibly have nothing to do with.

    The traditional rites of spring – prom and graduation – can be exciting times when teens experience a taste of adulthood. But use of alcohol or illegal drugs is a good way to derail one’s future.

    To the editor: It was with great interest and much sorrow that I read the letter to the editor “City hall for sale.” In the letter, the author makes some very serious, bordering on criminal, accusations toward local government officials.

    It was a strange winter that passed through the Courierarea this year. One day snow, the next shirt-sleeve temperatures. Now, spring has arrived, and we can expect more rollercoaster weather.
