OPINION

Process at post office is ridiculous

To the editor: This is about our postal system. For those of you who pay your bills yourself, send cards and letters, etc. Have you ever been charged for a bill that didn’t get to its destination on time or was “lost” in the mail, they say? I have.

Dustin made impact on the cycle

It was 14 years ago when I interviewed Tom Dustin. But if it had been 50 years ago or last week, it wouldn’t have mattered. His core principles would have been the same.

4th of July committee says thanks

To the editor: The Jay County 4th of July Committee would like to thank the Jay County community for making the 2024 4th of July Celebration another successful celebration.

Jay County Fair has a rich history

One of these days, the sign will have to be changed. Ever since the Roundhouse at the Jay County Fairgrounds was restored in 1986, it has had a sign marking it, “Floral Hall 1891.” Trouble is, it was built in 1883.

Reader disappointed in coverage

To the editor: I was not surprised when Friday’s CBS news said former president Donald Trump lied in the debate but failed to mention that President Joe Biden also lied. That is typical of the Trump haters on CBS.

Your fire chief is a warrior

To the editor: On Saturday, June 22, Portland’s fire chief was off duty but came to the aid of my husband, who had passed out.

Big brother hit marriage milestone

Fifty years. That’s a milestone for any marriage. And it’s a milestone my brother, Steve, and his wife, Beth, passed this month.

Young niece provided a reminder

It’s a standing joke at our house that we had our third child because we’d forgotten how much work the first two were.

Police, citizen thanked for help

To the editor: I am thankful for a Portland police officer and a concerned citizen who did the right thing.

Recorder caught history in the making

The tape is a time machine. Friday afternoon, alone in my office, I push the play button and Tiananmen Square erupts all over again.

Art addiction came about honestly

If this is a character flaw, I come by it honestly. My father had a problem with charity auctions as well. The latest proof of my own problem came over the weekend in Muncie. Connie and I had gone to a wine tasting event at Ball State that was fund-raiser …

Reader says trial had one purpose

This is truly an unusual presidential election. We have an innocent convicted felon running against a guilty unindicted felon.

Call added branch to family tree

The phone message went something like this: A woman from Kansas called who said she is related to you. OK, I don’t know about you, but that got my attention. Enough to call back.

Selflessness was signature moment

The place was crawling with Cub Scouts. Not that I have anything against Cub Scouts. I was a Cub Scout myself.

Resources are available

To the editor: May 12 through 18 is National Stuttering Awareness Week. One in every 100 people stutter. That’s 80 million people worldwide. Yet stuttering is often misunderstood and even laughed at.
