    It was good to see my friend Mike Walro’s response to my letter of March 20th. As Mike points out, changing the abortion law would be extremely difficult, but I don’t believe that we are “stuck” with it.

    It may seem unusual to write a letter about an article featured in another newspaper, the recent New York Times story, “Suicides, Drug Addiction and High School Football”.

    I have to disagree with my friend Ben Newell, a truly good man, with his advice not to vote (Madison Courier, March 20). I too am pro-life and abhor the fact that abortion is the law of the land, but until the Constitution is changed or the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court change its rulings, we are stuck with abortion as a possible outcome in this country. I agree we should let our senators and representatives know our beliefs, but my advice is then to vote your values.

    In response to the latest school shootings, Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville declared that those that didn’t take his position of gun control were culpable in the gun violence that rages through our society.

    You race down our streets, you run every stop sign,

    you throw your trash and beer cans in our yards.

    It appears to me that the Mustangs, glass-packed appointed pickup trucks and other speedsters who approach the East-bound Walnut Street stoplight have become impatient. I say impatient because from my front porch I can hear and see them go with pedal to the metal down East Main.

    I am writing today to advocate for those under current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protection, the DREAMers. DACA enables illegal immigrants, brought to America as a “DREAMer” to work without citizenship status.

    The Women’s March in January this year and last got a lot of media coverage and supposedly included all women. There was a group of women not included, at least that we know of for sure in the January 2017 March for Women in D.C. and Vegas. It is probably the same this year in 2018 from listening to what their agenda is. Groups of Pro Life Women were turned down for the official Women’s March in D.C. and Vegas when they applied to be in the march of January 2017. The Women’s March was reported as having marches in cities in the U.S. and elsewhere.

  • Courthouse tree ‘the best Christmas gift’

    To the Editor:

    I know it’s a little late, but to see a beautiful Christmas tree at the corner of Jefferson and Main when I came in to visit my aunt for Christmas was a sight for sore eyes. I remember stopping in Madison when I was young with my parents and always went to the courthouse to see the tree.

    A recent article in the Madison Courier about the new Tax Act asked the question whether it will turn out to be your ugly sweater your aunt gave you last year for Christmas or your favorite present? Rather than having a biased politician tell you the answer, find out for yourself.

    To the editor: As a member of the federal community who served our country for years, I am concerned with an attempt to force current U.S. Postal Service retirees onto Medicare Part B, after they previously declined this coverage. While hailed as a way to improve USPS’ finances, this is nothing more than balancing the books on the backs of seniors.

    To the editor: The Madison Consolidated School Board’s decision to improve Anderson Elementary and abandon E.O. Muncie should begin a thoughtful community discussion about what will become of this 20-acre parcel in the middle of the hilltop.

    Dear Sen. Young and Rep. Messer,

    The GOP says the tax bill you support will benefit Hoosiers and all Americans. It’s my opinion, as well as the opinion of most economists, that — to put it as nicely as possible — a great exaggeration.
