    Dear Editor,

    Local elections are over.  Congratulations to the winning candidates.

    The local Republican Chair, John Pickerill, now has some free time and is once again advocating for the elimination of Montgomery County’s Economic Development organization, Indiana West Advantage.  In addition, Pickerill has proposed a lasseiz-faire (hands off) economic plan which is to actually have no plan, as a proposed solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.

    Dear Editor:
    On behalf of Dusk-to-Dawn Bereavement Services, I want to express much thanks and appreciation to all those who joined together to make our first annual Harvest Festival a great success. Together, we raised more than $1,250 to help provide much needed counseling services to those in our community who are suffering loss.

    Dear Editor:
    As schools across the state are reviewing the preliminary release of the 2014-2015 ISTEP+ results, we are finding that the percentage of students passing the exam has dropped as a result of Indiana’s botched system of standardized testing.

    Dear Editor,
    Last Wednesday my husband Marc and I boarded the new Iowa Pacific Hoosier State for a day trip to Chicago.

    Dear Editor:
    Pickerill’s a good guy, wrong, but a good guy. Mr. Timmons mentioned the G.O.P. County Chair says the government in Montgomery County is spending and has spent too much on economic development during the past two decades. In my opinion, this should not be hard to determine if economic development would be willing to reveal their accomplishments.

    Dear Editor,

    After reading Mr. Guard’s letter of Nov. 5, I felt a need to comment. Hope I have the right. I live in the rural area and only have a high school education. Probably not a Fons’ qualification.

    Dear Editor:
    I would like to take a few minutes to respond to three different instances lately where I have had people question my politics, education, qualifications for City Council, ability to process data and then make an educated decision, as well as my motivation for council and inability to be in touch with the general public.

    Dear Editor,
    Congress recently suspended the debt ceiling allowing the federal government to borrow as much money as needed to continue to fund its operations.  On that day, the national debt jumped $339 Billion and the national debt now exceeds $18.4 Trillion; over $57,400 per citizen, over $148,000 per household and over $154,000 per taxpayer.

    Dear Editor:
    The National Commander of The American Legion, Dale Barnett, of Georgia and formerly of Indiana, is touring the state from Nov. 1 – 6 with American Legion State Commander Larry Lowry and his state officers, along with the Auxiliary State President, Ruth Rairdon and some of her state officers, also the Sons of the American Legion State Commander, Chirs Carlton and state officers.

    Dear Editor,

    I have consistently espoused the value of solar power to the personal cash flow of individuals in the long run by avoiding increasing conventional utility charges.
