Letters To The Editor
I’m pleased to read in Peggy Buffington's column there are long-term improvements in our public schools.
Sister Megan Rice, 83, and two other peace activists, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed, were convicted and could be sentenced to 20 years for breaking into a Tennessee storage facility for depleted uranium weapons and splashing them with blood.
Congress worked fast to pass a bill to free delays at airports. This is happening only because politicians also travel on commercial airlines and don't want to be delayed in airports.
Recent writers continue to promote the mistaken idea that additional background checks for firearm purchases will prevent future shootings. U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer’s bill would not have prevented any of the recent mass shootings. Evil people with intent will always find a means to harm others.
I received a phone call from someone with a foreign accent who told me I was getting a new Medicare card and he wanted to verify some information. He asked to confirm my current address. I told him I had moved and he asked me why. That made me suspicious.
We want to thank the person or persons who borrowed our galvanized wash tub, which was full of yard waste. When you are done with it, will you please return it, as we do need it back.
Obama let four Americans die in Benghazi, and then he tries to cover it up. How shameful. Where is the special commission, the special prosecutor? Why should he remain president when he refused to protect an American Embassy for political reasons?
Since Munster got that referendum through, just wait until next April or May when you get your property tax bill. In the Lake Central School area the same thing happened.
We have only two alternatives. We vote Democratic in the next election for higher taxes, or we vote Republican for lower taxes.
The creationist, global warming-denying Republicans, whose incompetence nearly destroyed the economy, continue to harp on Benghazi while ignoring the WMD lie. They have repeatedly voted against Obamacare while proposing nonsense to replace it with.
U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky should co-sponsor H.R. 1565 to expand Brady background checks on gun sales.
We have an estimated 2 million nonprofit organizations in our nation. Religious groups account for 350,000 and 1.4 million in the annual IRS registry and a further smaller group in increments.
We need a law requiring a balanced budget.
I watched a very interesting Fox News report in regard to videocameras being too intrusive in our lives, because of too much big government in our lives and they do not like it or want it.
House Democratic leader Scott Pelath deserves credit for keeping his caucus from abandoning their legislative duties this session. But the misguided attempt to gain “middle class” votes in his May 7 column is shameful. People are sick and tired of “class warfare” waged by Democrats.
I was really disappointed in Lake County Councilman Mike Repay and his position on the Lake County income tax. I voted for this guy because I believed him. How wrong I was.
Ever notice a correlation between those towns, cities, counties and even our great nation that are in financial difficulties? They're run by the Democratic Party!
This is in reply to the letter Susan Martin from Valparaiso wrote recently, complaining about the government saying what the school kids could eat. She should be glad they are taking an interest and caring about our kids. Evidently she doesn't care.
After a few senators voted down the proposed gun law, one cannot help but equate them to the Marquis de Sade in that he, too, said, "The people be damned."
It is great that all the people who work for a living in Lake County took a 1.5 percent pay cut to save our county government.
