  • In an era often marred by senseless legislation (allowing guns on school property) and ethical issues (former superintendent of public instruction Tony Bennett, Rep. Eric Turner), it’s nice to see a lawmaker propose a measure firmly grounded in logic. 
  • To the editor: The goal of the Jay County Drug Coalition has always been to get the word out about the dangers of drugs and the addictions that can result from them. 
  • To the editor: With the holidays behind us the Jay County Salvation Army would like to thank all the volunteers who made this year’s fundraiser a success. 
  • The email arrived back in May of last year and seemed harmless enough. 
  • To the editor:
    For the second straight year, the Jayland Angel Tree program was a huge success. 
  • Pope Francis was right the other day.
    And he was wrong. 
  • Years ago, then-State Sen. Larry Macklin made a profound observation about the Indiana General Assembly. 
  • Set a deadline, and it’s virtually guaranteed those involved will wait until the last minute. 
  • To the editor: Portland youth is losing out again. 
  • The weather’s uninviting, the days are gloomy and the post-holiday questions pile up like calories from all those Christmas treats. 
  • To the editor: In case you have been too busy with other important agendas such as surfing the net or Facebooking and you missed it, I would like to call your attention to a letter to the editor published in The CR Jan. 3 written by Jeffery Steed. 
  • Often the workings of government are as clumsy as a 13-year-old boy with size 12 shoes. 
  • It’s always interesting to watch public officials grow in office. 
  • Jobs. Education. Money.
    Those are issues we can all agree are of great importance. And all three will be major points of discussion for the Indiana General Assembly during its session that began Tuesday. 
  • To the editor: I read with great interest Chris Schanz’s column on bowl games and I’m in complete accordance with him.
