Madison Courier
  • Thursday, February 28, 2019 2:59 PM
    I was born and raised in Madison. I’ve worked as a daily newspaper editor for several decades and I was sorry, but not surprised, to see publisher Curt Jacobs decide to reduce the days of print publication of the Courier.

    Thoughts on a new jail:

    A recent article in the Courier reminded the community of the importance of preschool.

    The CDC recently released a new report on secondhand smoke exposure. The report states that while exposure decreased from 87.5 percent to 25.2 percent from 1988 to 2014, progress has stalled.

    To the Editor:

    Earlier this week my family had the difficult job of laying our father, brother and uncle, Don Vaughn, to rest. It was hard to say good bye but we took great comfort in the actions of the City of Madison, the Fairplay Fire Company and Morgan & Nay Funeral Centre to honor him, and I write this letter to thank everyone involved.

    To the Editor:

    As Christmas approaches, the staff at Madison State Hospital want to thank this wonderful community for the generosity shown to our patients in previous years. We ask again that you remember the patients at Madison State Hospital in your holiday plans. While preparing for joyous holiday celebrations with your family and friends, please be mindful that not everyone is so fortunate.

    Dear Editor:
    Voters in Indiana’s Sixth Congressional District face a dramatic choice in November. On one side, we have Jeannine Lee Lake, a mother and a journalist who supports Medicare for all and tuition-free public higher education.
  • When Cub basketball was king, Don Firth made the hoops ring
    Saturday, August 25, 2018 9:00 AM
    A Cub star has winged his way to heaven. Don Firth is the one, taking with him tales of Hoosier Hysteria that would stun anyone.

    While visiting Madison recently, as I frequently did in years past, I was appalled to find no downtown grocery store. How can this be?

    By now, most of you are probably aware that the Ohio Theatre sustained fire damage on June 28. Plain and simple, our brave local fire fighters saved the building. The volunteers quickly developed a safe strategy for extinguishing the fire and executed that plan with efficiency.

    To the editor:

    American society has become impatient with the speed at which government policy, rules and laws can be properly implemented.

    To the editor:

    I am writing to encourage Madison residents to plant large-stature trees in their yards.

    Dear Editor: Regarding the photo on the front page of the Madison Courier dated June 30, 2018: The photo of the Ohio Theatre marquee show the feature, “The Fountainhead” starring Gary Cooper; that movie was from 1949.

    During the decade that the West Street Art Center was in operation, proprietor Peter Ellis made a huge cultural impact on Madison, Indiana.
  • Saturday, March 31, 2018 9:00 AM
    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.
  • Saturday, March 31, 2018 9:00 AM
    To the Editor:

    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”.
  • Thursday, March 29, 2018 3:00 PM
    I would like to send a Big Thank You to the Southwestern basketball team of 2017-2018. 
  • Thursday, March 29, 2018 3:00 PM
    The Southwestern Boys basketball team and coaching staff would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Hanover and Madison communities for their incredible support of our basketball team not only during this season but also the State Tournament run.
  • Thursday, March 22, 2018 3:00 PM
    To the editor:

    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. 
  • Tuesday, March 20, 2018 3:00 PM
    To the editor:

    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.
