    Open Letter to the Board of Crawfordsville School Corporation and the Crawfordsville Community:
    While many in the community are worried about the Delta COVID variant spreading, many are not. The idea that Crawfordsville School Corporation will be mask-optional with all other COVID safeguards from last year discarded, I have another concern since this new variant is far more contagious and can mutate to become more deadly. My concern affects all of us taxpayers.

    Dear Editor,
    "Major League Baseball lost me years ago when they went on strike one too many times. Yeah, I doubt they batted an eye. The thing is though, I was a die-hard fan. I checked box scores every day."
    When I had my service station (remember those?) I ran a 13 Run Pool for many, many years. I had people on a waiting list for the next year should there be an opening in the pool; which was rare.

    Dear Editor,
    The persecution of Christians is intensifying throughout the world and in our own country.
    Persecution of the church is nothing new. The first Christians in the city of Jerusalem were persecuted by the Jews beginning with the martyrdom of Saint Stephen and then were scattered throughout the Middle East.

    Dear Editor,
    We would like to update everyone on the final totals for our Summer Donation Drive proceeds going to our local veterans here in Crawfordsville and the 125 amazing individuals currently living at the Indiana Veterans' Home.

    Dear Editor,
    I was very interested, concerned and frightened after reading a recent article by Brian Howey entitled “When we refuse to accept the verdict…”
    I’ve read similar articles like this but Howey somehow captured the current state of the nation and how we are quickly becoming our own worst enemies.
    In his article, he quoted a YouGov poll in October 2020 that found 56% of those polled said they expect to see “an increase in violence as a result of the election” with some 40% “strongly agreed” that the United States could be “on the verge” of a second civil war.

    Dear Editor,
    Enjoyed Butch Dale’s column on Marion “Runt” Maxwell. I got to know Runt when I was sports editor at the Journal Review. Baseball coaches called in their box scores except for Runt.

    Dear Editor,
    There is no mistaking how people are enjoying being able to see one another in person, to travel, and to go to local festivals and eateries again after last year’s pandemic restrictions.
    We all know how those 2020 restrictions helped put us on the path to a far more open 2021, and yet restrictions and the cost of the pandemic itself put a huge gouge in our economy as schools, businesses, and, especially, the travel and hospitality industries had to shift to crisis mode—or shut down.

    It has been common knowledge for years that all major developing countries have possessed the ability to conduct germ warfare. The Wuhan crisis is no exception. A virus was created in the lab and deliberately leaked into the local wet markets for experimentation on the people of Wuhan. This is totally consistent with China's poor record on civil rights and its complete lack of concern for all of the Chinese people.

    Dear Editor,
    This fall, Indiana lawmakers have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to shape the future for Hoosiers. The question is whether those in the majority will look to the future or cling selfishly to the past. Looking forward would mean greater representation for all Hoosiers; clinging to the past would ensure that countless Hoosier voices can be effectively ignored.

    Dear Editor,
    We have all been so blessed to call this area our home. We are a community filled with tradition, history, art, and culture. We have always valued our freedoms and have taken comfort in our love for liberty. In the words of President Ronald Reagan, "We've been blessed with the opportunity to stand for something -for liberty, freedom, and fairness.

    Dear Editor,
    The Montgomery County Democratic Party and Club will host the American Rescue Tour sponsored by the Indiana Democratic Party on Monday, June 28 5 p.m. at the North Shelter in Milligan Park, Crawfordsville. The Tour provides an opportunity to learn exactly what President Joe Biden and the Democrats are doing to help Indiana.

    Dear Editor,
    To begin, let me state that this letter is specifically addressed to whomever had the gall to steal my lawnmower out of my yard on Sunday 06/13/2021. I also realize that this will probably do no good as if you possess such low morals to steal then you probably do not read the newspaper as well. Regardless, I am still writing and publishing simply to get some things “off my chest.”

    Dear Editor:
    The countdown is on – and employers have less than a month left to prepare for a change in youth-employment law in Indiana. In the 2020 legislative session, the General Assembly amended youth-employment law to eliminate work permits for minor employees effective July 1, 2021. But that change comes with a new responsibility for Hoosier employers, and one that bears a penalty of up to $400 per infraction if an employer is found to be out of compliance with the new law.

    Dear Editor,
    What is the big deal? We have had a pandemic. Now we have states, cities and Universities bribing people to get the vaccine.
    If these people have so much money to give away, why not give it to a food pantry?

    The past few years have been incredibly difficult for hog farmers like me. After more than two years of trade retaliation that limited our ability to compete effectively around the globe, the COVID pandemic unleashed unprecedented challenges for the entire food supply chain. Now, just as we are returning to normalcy, another looming disaster threatens my livelihood and the prosperity of many hog farmers like me if not quickly addressed. I
