    To the editor:

    Life… Every second counts. Most people realize how precious life is. In fact, poll after poll comes back with the majority of the people holding the pro-life view. People know in their hearts that taking another’s life is never a good solution to any problem, whether it is an inconvenient preborn baby or an inconvenient grandma.

    To the editor: Our "leaders" have been fulsome in their denunciation of the American police forces lately, in connection with the Ferguson and Staten Island killings of black men during confrontations.

    To the editor:

    Did you know that secondhand smoke contains more than 7,000 toxic chemicals? Of those 7,000 toxic chemicals, 70 are known carcinogens, or cancer-causing substances. According to the Centers for Disease Control, second hand smoke causes nearly 34,000 premature deaths from heart disease each year in the United State among non-smokers. Secondhand smoke causes more than 7,300 lung cancer deaths in the United States. Secondhand smoke affects the brain in infants and those exposed to secondhand smoke are at greater risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Locally, 25.8 percent of mothers smoked during pregnancy, which is significantly, higher than the state prenatal smoking rate of 17.1 percent.

    To the editor: The staff and patients at the Madison State Hospital would like to thank the community for all the generous support provided over several decades. 
  • Wednesday, November 12, 2014 10:00 AM
    To the editor: What a beautiful new bridge we have. Complete with a walkway. It is a great addition to both Madison and Milton. 
  • Friday, October 31, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: So far this year the American Legion Post 9 Honor Guard has performed 129 final salutes for our passing veterans. Most of these are of the World War II era. 
  • Friday, October 31, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: I would like to know which law allowed the Madison Police Department to remove me from the bridge dedication ceremony.

    To the editor:

    George Nickas says he thinks that voter Photo-ID laws are not needed and are discriminatory against minorities. He is a college professor, but I think on this particular subject I have more real knowledge than he does. 
  • Friday, October 24, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: So back again are Superintendent Studebaker-Bolinger and the Madison Consolidated School Board with more threatening words to close schools and move students here and there as if they were pawns on a chess board. 
  • Thursday, October 23, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: I once assigned a grade of "B" to a straight "A" student as a public school teacher. Her parents, the student, and I had a lengthy conversation regarding my decision to enforce classroom standards. 
  • Wednesday, October 22, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: Everybody, particularly those in Republican-controlled states and members of the U.S. Supreme Court, needs to know about Judge Richard Posner's courageous and astounding admission that, serving on the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court, his decision in support of the 2007 Indiana Photo ID law, was a total and utter mistake based as it was on zero evidence for voter fraud. The U.S. Supreme Court later affirmed this mistake. 
  • Wednesday, October 22, 2014 11:00 AM
    To the editor: When I was first elected to the County Council four years ago, the public was discouraged from talking with elected officials and government wasn't very open or transparent. 
  • Saturday, October 18, 2014 5:00 AM
    To the editor: After reading the article on bringing the Majestic riverboat to Madison, it brought back memories of my childhood. 
  • Saturday, October 18, 2014 5:00 AM
    To the editor: I am against parking a Cincinnati showboat on our beautiful riverfront. It will require maintenance in the future and that means more money. 
  • Saturday, October 18, 2014 5:00 AM
    To the editor: On Oct. 8th, I attended a meeting of the Jefferson County Election Board and came away very disappointed.
