The Rest is History
As I See It

School, town will remain strong
To the editor: After attending the Jay School Board meeting Monday, I heard a remark made that no letters from Pennville supporters had been written to the newspaper. Well, here is mine.
Discovery is exhilarating
For a column with “history” in the title, I sure do write a lot about space.
Board needs to consider timing
To the editor: Two years ago, when the school corporation last publicly held meetings to close Pennville Elementary, the effect on the students was evident in the resulting ISTEP score of a D.
Ceremony shows broad tapestry
The line is longer than expected.
Tri Kappa says thanks for support
To the editor: February 19 through 24 is Tri Kappa Week in Indiana.
Swamp seems to still be full
To the editor: In the not too distant past, so-called President-elect Donald Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp.”
Advancements should be embraced
In the last few years, there’s been much discussion about the number of manufacturing and other blue collar jobs that have been lost to outsourcing, enabled by free trade agreements like NAFTA. Though that topic certainly deserves discussion, I think another aspect of the job loss equation is being left out.
High rates should not be allowed
To the editor: This year, payday lenders have put heavy pressure on our lawmakers to give them a new carve-out in state statute.
Wild pigs made for amusing lunch
The return address on the envelope was baffling.
Council can't duck tough decision
Probably no aspect of local government is as misunderstood as the county council.
Thank you for benefit support
To the editor: We would like to thank everyone who helped to make the benefit for Melissa Fifer-Campofiore family a success.
Holdman's bill would hurt the poor
State Sen. Travis Holdman has always struck us as a pretty level-headed guy.
There's a need for some changes
To the editor: I would like to comment on Adam Gray’s fine, well-written, fact-filled, heartfelt letter to the editor concerning the Jay County High School coaching staffs, football in particular.
Freedom will fade over time
To the editor: Fear and ignorance are the handmaidens to the bride of oppression.
Despite faults, citizenship is an honor
Dear Students, I understand from my good friend Andy Lippman in South Pasadena, California, that you are studying to become U.S. citizens.
