Letters

  • LETTER: Why steal flowers from graves of others?

    On Sept. 18, 2011, I laid my husband to rest at St. Mary’s Cemetery. His monument was placed in November and the cradle and flowers arranged.

    Already someone likes them also. His grave is visited several times a week but March 2 was special as it was our 59th wedding anniversary.

    All was well, I went by the next day and found an empty monument. We have had things stolen from our yard in the past, his flag off of our porch being the most important.

  • LETTER: Council comments a disservice to county

    I am writing to clarify my statements (made in a March 5 letter) about the proposed income tax concerning the new jail, and animal control ordinance and board. At the end of this letter I have included a short response to Jeff Jones.

    Because my first letter has led to some confusion, let me try to clarify my statements. First, when I was talking about the tax levy, I was talking about the 20 years as the time frame suggested by the council. According to stats found at Indiana.edu, the median household income is $44,652.

  • LETTER: Komen not wavering from its mission to serve women

    With recent news about our organization, there has never been a greater need for clarity in our communications with the tri-state.

    Rest assured the controversy inspired by actions at the national office of Susan G. Komen has in no way impacted the Evansville Tri-State Affiliate’s dedication to our core mission in the 28 counties we serve in southern Indiana, southern Illinois and western Kentucky.

  • LETTER: Letter writer wrong on jail tax increase

    Mrs. Carter, we’re sorry that we can’t agree with you on the animal-control issue but we try to vote for what we think the majority of the voters want and what makes sense.

    We know we can’t make everyone happy but we try to inform ourselves on the issues and vote accordingly. If we don’t get it right then the voters will tell us come next election. We feel the 2005 animal ordinance would be sufficient with a little tweaking.

  • LETTER: Council members listening to the vast majority of people against animal-control ordinance

    This letter is being written in response to last week’s letter written by Blanche Carter, the wife of Jim Carter, president of the Humane Society of Perry County.

    We are not political people either, but we feel very strongly about the animal-control ordinance, also.

    She published the names of three council members and then asked, “Are they truly representing the people of Perry County?”

    You bet they are.

  • LETTER: Groves, Elder hit the mark

    Just want to make a short statement. Hurrah for Dale Groves and Michael Elder. Loved your editorial comments.

    So intelligent. So right.

  • LETTER: There’s more to business than right-to-work

    In a Feb. 27 letter, Jim Adkins again selectively uses info from The Center For Responsible Politics. I looked all over that Web site and couldn’t find what he was quoting in his letter, mainly that eight of the top 10 all-time contributors are labor unions or that they contributed anything like $925 million during the 2004 campaign. If it’s in there Mr. Adkins, please contact me and tell me where.

  • LETTER: County needs animal-control ordinance

    I am not a political person by nature. When I feel strongly about a subject, I will try to learn and support that issue. I feel very strongly about the animal-control ordinance. I feel it is good for the future of our county. We have so many unwanted and mistreated animals in Perry County and it is time to admit there is a problem and address this issue.

    We don’t all agree with the ordinance, but it is at least a starting point.

  • LETTER: All of us have role in preventing teen dating violence

    February is National Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Month. One in three adolescents in the U.S. will be a victim of physical, verbal, emotional or sexual abuse from a dating partner.

    Dating violence, like any other intimate partner violence, is a pattern of controlling and abusive behaviors of one person over another within a romantic relationship. It knows no boundaries and crosses all lines of race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, etc.
