As I See It
Monday, July 25, 2016
Let's have a substantive election
I love politics. I love the drama it provides.
That’s why I was saddened to leave Missouri. The show-me state has shown its share of political theatre in 2016.
Senselessness seems endless
To the editor: While returning from a work trip to Houston last weekend, it was impossible to miss noticing two things along the journey.
Lunch plan isn't working
To the editor: I would like to share my opinion about school lunches.
Rest assured, love still trumps hate
What is it about hate?
Thank you for a fun 4th
To the editor: The staff and residents of CrownPointe Communities would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim and Kathy Sliger, owners of Southern Thunder Fireworks located on Water Street in Portland, for their generous donation of fireworks.
Crazy political year far from over
Historians writing about Indiana politics are going to have their hands full when it comes to explaining 2016.
Hometown has served as beacon
I need to come clean on something. I'm not from St. Louis.
Young right choice in fall
To the editor:
Recently, Baron Hill stepped down to allow Evan Bayh to compete in the race for the United States Senate.
Thank you for help with benefit
To the editor: On June 11, a benefit wiffle ball tournament was put on by Chad Funk, Brett Wagner and Dawn Keller for Andrew Wellman and his family.
Plates proved to be problematic
An item on the front page of Saturday's edition of The Commercial Review indicated that this week's column was going to reminisce about the Jay County Fair in years gone by.
Parade could be improved
To the editor: I agree with the editorial Jack Ronald published July 7.
Enjoy, appreciate our county fair
A little more than 40 years ago, a rescue took place in Jay County.
Time is overdue for a ceasefire
Can we please stop shooting each other?
That seems a fairly simple request, and yet, over and over again, we wake up to find that more of our friends, neighbors and countrymen have been shot.
Running still has its allure
“Do you still want to do this?”
That’s the question my physical therapist asked me at the end of last year.
Lets improve parade etiquette
Is there some sort of proper parade etiquette?
