    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter to the SILENT MAJORITY of people who live in Harrison County.  It is time for us to stand and reject the regressive behavior of the Harrison County Planning and Zoning Commission. Once again they are trying to keep our county from growing.
    They have vted “no” to a zone change request. This “no” vote is intended to prevent a Dollar General Store from being built here. This sends a loud and clear message they are satisfied with a stagnant population and economy in our county.

  • Thanks from St. Edwards

    To the editor:
    Dear neighbors, sponsors and friends, the parishioners of Saint Edward Parish thank you for supporting our 69th annual Ice Cream Social. It was an outstanding success! As promised, all proceeds will benefit the operation of Saint Edward School.

  • Keep the goats away from the sheep, reader says

    To the editor:
    Lee Kendall’s last editorial was excellent, timely and thought provoking. To many people today just catch the headlines and do not read the body of the article. Sign of the times!
    Our country and the world are not the same as when we were school children. The Statue of Liberty and many other patriotic symbols are not relevant.
    If you have a boat that will hold 100 people, and you add several more hundred to that, the boat will sink. This is where we are now.

    To the editor:
    I am writing in response to Lee Kendall’s column last week. First of all, my blood relatives from decades ago probably came to Ellis Island to enter the United States. Personal information was gathered and a health check was done.
    They came with the purpose of being hard-working, viable tax-paying citizens. Any person, regardless of age, sex or nationality that enters this country and stays without a green card or proper paperwork is trespassing.

    To the editor:
    Recently there’s been some much needed change around town. It can be seen by  taking a stroll through downtown, whether it’s the beautiful murals, the  freshly painted businesses or the terrific new shops. With all of these great  changes, there’s still more to be done.

    To the editor:
    The immigration policies pursued by the Trump administration should be condemned by Christians if they want to truly live in accordance with the Bible.

    To the editor:
    I am writing to show my continued support for Harrison County Sheriff Shain Stephens.
    On a personal level, I have known Shain for decades and consider him to be a valued friend. When my son married his daughter, we became family. While this is important, it is not the reason I’m supporting Shain in his bid to be re-elected.
    I support Shain Stephens for Sheriff because of the following:
    •His experience
    •His compassion for his fellow man
    •His efforts to eradicate drugs from Harrison County

  • Candidate endorsements deadline is May 4 for May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.
