... to the News and Tribune for an amazingly rapid newsbreak on its website Thursday night regarding the New Albany/Gahan parks dissolution.
— Randy Smith, New Albany
... to the Street Department in Clarksville.
Several weeks ago, the department paved Brooks Avenue. When they reached Marshall, they finally got rid of the hump that connected Brooks and Marshall. For 40 years I’ve braced leaving and entering Marshall because of the dip/hump.
It is now level with Brooks Street, but my hips still brace for the hump.
— Frances Harris, Clarksville
... to the new restaurant, Charlestown Train Station, in Charlestown.
I am not a restaurant critic, but I do appreciate good food. The menu is simple, but the food delicious, with an emphasis on seafood. Service is exemplary. I hope the people of Charlestown and Clark County support this new addition as it is much needed to the area.
— Sandra Johnson, Charlestown

CUMMINS: Join me in disobeying the government
If you have any notions about how we can overthrow the government, contact me, but do not use a cell or email. BigGov is tracking its citizen’s movements, maybe bowels. It’s getting so that about the only means of communicating privately, is to use the pony express or a carrier pigeon.
HOWEY: Drs. Bucshon, Brown and the Obamacare era
Larry Bucshon is a heart surgeon, a Republican and a congressman. He has had employees who have reached lifetime insurance caps and ended up on Medicaid. He has seen thousands of poor Hoosiers on Medicaid denied access to health care. He paid about $40,000 a year in medical malpractice insurance, a figure that is much lower than in most states. And he is a vociferous critic of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and has consistently urged its repeal.
