  • LETTER: Traffic speeds too high on Lorainne Road

    I’ve talked to the county attorney twice and he sent an e-mail to the county garage about my request for speed bumps in front of our home on Lorainne Road. We live on a one-lane, crooked, dead-end road, where the speed limit was 30 miles per hour.

    When I talked to county garage employee Steve Howell, he informed me they couldn’t do speed bumps because it may tear up someone’s car. I voiced my concerns of wrecks and excessive speed and that we had small kids in the area and his answer was, “We better keep our kids out of the road.”

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Dogwood Fest a success

    The Rome Community Center and the Rome Methodist Church want to thank so many people for the wonderful day we had here during the Dogwood Festival in April. Even though the weather was gloomy and misty, people were kind enough to wait in a long line to eat our meal.

    We apologize for running out of food, but it is truly very difficult to estimate the correct amount needed, even though we’ve been doing this for many years.

  • LETTER: Alzheimer’s law will help police, patients

    As an advocate for the more than 120,000 Indiana residents who are struggling with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, and the estimated 328,000 family members and friends who help care for them, I want to thank the Indiana legislature – particularly Rep. Bill Friend, R-Macy, and Gov. Mike Pence – for their efforts to enact a new law requiring police officers to be trained in how to interact with people who have Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
