    To the editor: I can attest to the fact that there are guardian angels on earth! Recently, my son got stuck in a ditch by the Goodwill Store, due to the heavy snow. Had I tried to get to him, I surely would have gotten stuck also.

    To the editor: Stop and think about it.

    To the editor: It is time that the voters of Jefferson County know the truth about the absentee program that was consistently called “fraudulent.”

    To the editor: Indiana remains one of three remaining states that still permit involuntary annexation. If Indiana legislators pass SB330 (Annexation) this year, residents will finally have a legal standing in the annexation process. Involuntary annexation forces property owners to become a part of a municipality, even if 100 percent of the residents do not want to be annexed.

    To the editor: It seems our local politicians and community leaders are increasingly fixated on “Old Madison,” the open forum website, privately sponsored.

    To the editor: Last Wednesday when the wind was blowing and it was unseasonably cold, I had a knock on my door. When I answered a young man told me it was too bad outside for me to get the mail.

    To the editor: This is to say “thank you” to the kind gentleman who stopped on his way home from work to help dig out my car Monday. When the state plowed Baltimore Street (U.S. 421), my driveway was blocked with ice and snow. With the slight melting I thought I could drive through it, but got stuck backing out, blocking part of the street.

    To the editor: I am retiring from my position as coordinator of the Madison Chautauqua, effective Dec. 31, 2015.

    To the editor: This is to the person who shot my dog Rascal. That Labrador/boxer mix was our dog who we loved very much.

    To the editor: In the Feb. 5 paper, an article was published on the Senate advancing (State Sen. Jim) Smith’s Christmas in the classroom bill. I thoroughly enjoyed this article and am very happy that this is on its way to being passed.

    To the editor: Kudos to the 2015 County Commissioners and The Madison Courier write up of the meeting.

    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.
