Comment time is 30 days long
To the editor: All citizens should know that they have 30 days from the publication date of the intent to build a confined feeding factory to submit written comments to Jay County/Portland Building and Planning.
Recipe repertoire has expanded

And my cooking is finally improving.
Be safe, helpful during disasters
To the editor: In light of the recent flooding here in Jay County, I am not surprised by the number of people that thought playing in the water was cool.
Trip to Roadshow was worthwhile
8:15 a.m. EDT — We are sitting at the South Bend airport, waiting for a train. I know that sounds a little goofy, but the South Shore Railroad — the cheapest, best, no-hassle way to get into Chicago from Indiana — has its eastern-most station at the airport.
Our students must know we care
To the editor: School has already been in session a few weeks, which means that students have increased daily contact with one another compared to the summer months.

Death does not have to be in vain
To the editor:
I want to express that I know that nothing I write can take away the pain of the loss of a child and that I in no way want to even pretend that I can fathom the deepness of that pain. What I do want to do is to tell what I saw and experienced the few days that I was in Indiana.
Kayak was a little less than stable
There’s nothing to worry about, the woman said. It’s next to impossible to fall out of a kayak.
Jay given no respect
To the editor: Comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s theme makes me think of the thumbing of the nose of the J-Star Farms of Ohio to Jay County, Indiana’s rules and regulations concerning confined animal feeding operations and building permit rules.
Be welcoming to our visitors
State treasurer candidate Mike Boland was surprised by the amount of traffic he encountered Wednesday on a stop in Portland.
Police chief offers thanks
To the editor: On Aug. 5, the Portland Police Department participated in the National Night Out.
Career was meant to be
I didn’t always want to be a journalist.
