    Dear Editor,
    I would like to offer a public apology to the Republican Party for saying there was a shadow over the party.
    I am sure you do things in an orderly manner, fair and with integrity.

    Dear Editor,
    Recently I saw Mr. Frey’s picture in the paper. It brought back memories. I have known Mr. Frey for a long like. Always liked John. Too bad, sometimes politics changes a person. When knocking on door I was often asked, noticing he had changed, what happened to John?

    Dear Editor,
    The following letter was sent to Gov. Eric Holcomb. It is reprinted here with the author’s permission.

    Gov. Holcomb,
    The Military / Veterans Coalition of Indiana (TMVCI), a coalition of over one hundred (100) organizations who support those serving in our military, those who have served and their families, request you intervene on behalf of Hoosier Veterans and their families to prevent a wrong from happening in the current Indiana General Assembly.

    Dear Editor,
    As with the beginning of each session of the state legislature, there’s always a multitude of bills introduced on just about any subject or issue. The vast majority never move forward and even fewer become law. I have included a few which might be of interest to local voters. One of the disturbing trends emerging is the legislature’s interest in extending control and/or oversight in the traditional affairs of local governing bodies, especially Indianapolis, which, at the same time, is one things many of them complain about with Federal overreach into state issues.

    Dear Editor,
    The remaining environmentally essential wetlands in Indiana are gravely threatened! The Indiana General Assembly is considering a bill, Senate Bill 389, that, “Repeals state regulated wetlands law. Repeals the law requiring a permit from the department of environmental management for wetland activity in a state regulated wetland.

    Dear Editor,
    Should we feel sorry for the coward Mike Braun? Braun has openly said he will vote to acquit Donald Trump of the charge of inciting a mob to storm the Capital. Assuming that Braun is not mentally impaired, the only other conclusion to draw from this insistence on innocence is that he is as afraid of the Trump mob as, for example, Mike Pence may be.

    Dear Editor,
    First, for those of you who are newly elected, congratulations! For those who have been re-elected or are continuing their terms, thank you for your ongoing service to our city and county.
    Crawfordsville and Montgomery County have already made great strides in sustainability. With the completion of the latest solar farm, Crawfordsville will have a higher percentage of its electrical load coming from solar power than any other city in the state.

    Dear Editor,
    I am tired of dirty politics . . . and just the word politics makes most of us cringe because of the ugliness that surrounds it as it does here.
    Let me tell you my story- before I tried to color MoCo purple last spring! 
    I got involved in local politics surrounding an issue that would be impactful for many of us in rural areas. I researched, read through many scientific journal articles to learn about the issue. In the process, I observed things in the county that I would address differently than has been done.

    Dear Editor,
    Now that the dust has settled a little following the inauguration which took place on January 20 what can we say about the impact of this election on our state of affairs? Prior to the conclusion of this very polarizing and controversial election season a search of the Internet revealed many strong predictions of what was going to happen. But what has the actual result been?

    In recent weeks, thanks to the report of the Governor’s Commission on Teacher Salaries, Hoosiers have learned how woefully inadequate Indiana teacher salaries are in comparison to neighboring states and the rest of the country.
    As Indiana prepared for the 2021 session of the Indiana General Assembly where the state budget for the next two years will be created, the Governor and leaders for the Republican super majorities in the House and Senate have stated their commitment to maintaining public school funding at current levels and said they want to see increases in teacher salaries.

    Dear Editor,
    State Senator Phil Boots announced the 2021 legislative agenda the other day. The agenda has two serious flaws in it that if enacted would cause harm to the Senator’s constituents. Senator Boots overall is a nice and caring guy. He has, however, shown that he can also be irresponsible and reckless by supporting measures that will aid the spread of SARS-CoV2 and death from Covid-19.

    Dear Editor,
    In terms of election fraud have you noticed how quiet it has gotten since January 6th.
    The silence is deafening.

    Dear Editor,
    Today I want to address the issue of the relationship between church and state in the United States of America. If you put it simply, the state is to be the protector of the church and the church is to be the conscience of the state. The role of government in the United States is to protect the freedom of religion among other things.

    Dear Editor,
    Those who have criticized me for taking sides in politics will be happy to read today’s editorial. The Republicans AND the Democrats have betrayed America.
    A valiant attempt to expose the false election was squashed by the “false flag” of January 6. And both sides capitulated. False Flag is a term for a military tactic whereby the enemy dresses up like the other side and then commits horrible acts to discredit the opposition.

    Dear Editor,
    By the time you read this the election may finally be unequivocally over. For those of us who were hoping that President Trump would somehow prevail January 6 has been a day of disaster.
    Evidence of election fraud continued to be exposed and piled up and more and more senators and representatives expressed their intent to object to the electors submitted by the disputed states.
