    Dear Editor,
    The family of Mark Perry would like to take this time to say thank you to all of those who supported us during our time of grief. We want to send out a special thank you to Cheryl McClaskey, Patti Wallace and Marty Routh for always being there to help with anything we needed.

    Dear Editor,
    Our family wishes to thank a lot of people after the recent passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend Dick Munro.
    We want to start by thanking Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton and Paper Publisher Tim Timmons for making Dick Munro Day happen before Dick passed.

    Dear Editor,
    Regarding Butch Dale’s column urging people to “keep a sharp mind and mellow out,” his suggestions – even if some are made with tongue in cheek -- are good advice. Always enjoy Butch’s folksy columns because I grew up in the same era he often writes about.

    Dear Editor,
    HB 389 that virtually eliminates regulations in Indiana that control erosion causing activities and subsequent degradation of Indiana water was passed by the Governor this week. This week also saw a wildcat developer clear large parts of the bluff above Sugar Creek just South of the Twin Oaks subdivision. This bluff is directly opposite the currently collapsing bluff at Sugar Cliffs.

    The tone of the 2021 budget session of the Indiana General Assembly has been quite different from the last budget session in 2019 when K-12 public education leaders stood with legislative leaders to announce a state budget that devoted $763 million in new funding for K-12 public education. Fast forward to this session, and it has been one consumed with a contentious debate on the proposed expansion of school choice programs that devote significant funds to private education.

    Dear Editor,
    Standard deductions for Federal and State income taxes need to be increased SUBSTANTIALLY as well as its cost of living, inflation increase. Why do lower and middle income taxpayers pay more in Indiana State taxes than USA federal taxes?

    Dear Editor,
    Recently US Rep. Jim Baird (R) defended his vote last week against the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package saying “very little” of the funding will help families recover from the pandemic. I disagree with Congressman Baird and all of the Republicans who voted no.

    Dear Editor,
    In this age of conspiracy theories there is one in which I have complete confidence.
    This theory is supported by the two great pillars of the church, Saints Peter and Paul in their writings in the New Testament:
    “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

    Dear Editor,
    An open letter to Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the current administration, 
    We don’t hate you and we don’t mean you any harm, but we simply don’t trust you.

    Dear Editor,
    Every column Brian Howey submits to The Paper is nothing more than a veiled attempt to stir up some kind of trouble. Now he's trying to incite race riots, as if we haven't had enough of those in the last year. What he fails to realize is that every time he perpetuates the false narrative about George Floyd, he denigrates any credibility his columns may ever have had. Floyd had twice the lethal levels of Fentanyl and Meth in his blood.

    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.
