Gov 2017

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb visited Jay County last week. What issues would you most like to see him address in his first year?


  • To the editor: February 19 through 24 is Tri Kappa Week in Indiana.
  • To the editor: In the not too distant past, so-called President-elect Donald Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp.”
  • In the last few years, there’s been much discussion about the number of manufacturing and other blue collar jobs that have been lost to outsourcing, enabled by free trade agreements like NAFTA. Though that topic certainly deserves discussion, I think another aspect of the job loss equation is being left out.
  • To the editor: This year, payday lenders have put heavy pressure on our lawmakers to give them a new carve-out in state statute.
  • The return address on the envelope was baffling.
