I wanted to respond to State Sen. Ron Grooms’ column in the July 14 News and Tribune regarding his support of the Baker-Schultz Carbon Dividends Plan. Any business that produces a product, be it a car or electricity, has to take into account ALL costs pertaining to the production of said pro…
I took umbrage to Jamey Aebersold’s letter appearing in the June 26, 2021 News and Tribune. Seems to me that Sen. Braun has done plenty of talking about the failed policy of defunding the police and gun criminals not receiving adequate bail set or sentencing from liberal prosecutors.

Congratulations to the New Albany High School Class of 2021. The year started with empty classrooms and limited activities, but ended with the feeling that “normal” was returning.
On May 6, LifeSpring held a strategic planning meeting at Jeffersonville, Jasper and Austin, live at each location and virtual for everyone. LifeSpring now serves almost a half-million people along the Ohio River in Indiana. We provide mental health services and now primary physical care ser…
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center strongly endorses the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) plan to prohibit menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars. The FDA banned the use of flavors in cigarettes in 2009, except for menthol. [The] historic proposal will not immediately remo…
Mailbag contributor, Mr. Larry Farr, often writes to complain that others fail to provide supporting data for their opinions. My recent letter, “We are all real Americans,” in response to Barbara Anderson’s “Protect our vote,” called attention to her insinuation that Trump supporters are not…
