    Dear Editor,
    As we go into our spring and summer seasons, I'd like everyone to remember that dandelions are the first foods available to our butterfly and bee friends and it’s not healthy or nice toward the environment, our animals, or our children to spray the dandelions with weed killer pesticides.

    Dear Editor,
    We are certainly living in a time unprecedented by anything most any of us can recall as we face the uncertainties of the COVID-19 virus. We can listen to daily briefings from our federal government leaders as to how we should respond. These responses have quickly worked their way down into each state, county, and city or town.

    Dear Editor,
    It is my privilege to endorse April Johnson for the position of county commissioner. April is more than qualified for this position. She is a strong Christian. She is honest and she does not lie.

    Dear Editor,
    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has shown us love and support during the passing of our beloved Mother and Grandmother; Nellie D. Conrad. Your phone calls, flowers, cards and messages mean so much to us. It is healing to hear how much she meant to others.

    Dear Editor,
    All over the world good and honest folks are facing a situation beyond the comprehension of their everyday lives. One day, looking towardsspring and Easter, the next being media smacked with the possibility of losing their lives to something creeping around, unseen, attaching itself to everyone and destroying their very existence. The media reports the virus is on an unchecked rampage, the government clearly is not able to exert control and there is no cure or vaccine.

    Dear Editor,
    I’m so glad to see that April Johnson is running for a county commissioner’s seat. She is someone that puts God and family first. I believe it’s time the county has someone that’s willing to step up to do something for Montgomery County, and not for themselves.

    Dear Editor,
    I am excited to seek election on the Montgomery County Council. Montgomery County has proven to be an excellent place for my wife Morgan and me to set roots. Born and raised on a small farm North of Darlington, I have always appreciated our community and all it has to offer. Following graduation from Purdue University, it was important for me to come back home. I am a small business owner of a Pioneer Seed dealership and a grain production operation.

    Dear Editor,
    Indiana legislators must act now to secure Hoosier women’s economic stability. On average, women in Indiana make 74 cents for their male peers’ dollar.
    For black women in Indiana, the number is 58 cents on the dollar. For Latina women, it’s 53 cents: the threat of financial instability is especially pressing for women of color.

    Dear Editor,
    I am writing to thank Crawfordsville residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season.
    Because of the generosity of donors in Crawfordsville and across the United States, Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, collected more than 8.9 million shoebox gifts in 2019. Combined with those collected from partnering countries in 2019, the ministry is now sending 10,569,405 shoebox gifts to children worldwide.

    Dear Editor,
    I would like to take a moment to invite the citizens of Crawfordsville and Montgomery County to attend the 2020 State of the City / County Addresses this coming Thursday, Jan. 16 on the third floor of Fusion 54. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with a “meet and greet” followed by the addresses beginning at 7 p.m.

    Dear Editor,
    Volunteers for Mental Health in Montgomery County has wrapped up another year’s Christmas Drive! Approximately 218 bags, brimming with fulfilled wishes, were delivered to nursing homes, group homes, mental health clients, and residents of recovery programs through efforts of our volunteer organization. We are fortunate to exist in a community where we are not alone in completing this large task! Thank you to everyone who helped in any way!

    Dear Editor:
    The Downstream Project, sponsored by the Citizens Action Coalition Education Fund, (CACEF) works to promote the effective environmental regulation of industrial agriculture, such as concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), at the local, state, and federal levels. 
    We were contacted by several Montgomery County citizens who requested help in providing educational resources to the Montgomery County CAFO Task Force, which was formed to draft a CAFO zoning proposal for the County. We attended several Task Force meetings and were pleased that the Task Force Chair welcomed our input and promised to pass it along to committee members. So, it was disappointing to read in media accounts that the information was not passed on to the Task Force because it came from a “lobbying organization.” Unfortunately, the Chair of the Task Force was mistaken about that and the record must be corrected.
