• Hovey Lake office should remain at old location

    To all Posey County residents and anyone else who may utilize Hovey Lake,

    You are no doubt aware of DNR’s plan to relocate its office to a seven-acre site that is on Highway 69 about seven miles from the lake itself. Everyone involved knows that the Ohio River floods. Those of us who are concerned about this new location believe that, with proper planning and construction, an office could be located back at the lake proper where it belongs.

  • We need more sports coverage

    Dear editor,

    I’m writing in regards to your Halloween issue. The Knights’ front porch was admittedly nice to look at but left a number of your readers disappointed. How could a story so big lose out to a picturesque holiday scene and a large, orange HAPPY HALLOWEEN greeting? I know I’m crossing my sports, but that’s a strike.

    Mt. Vernon sports fans don’t throw in the towel so easy. Perhaps the story so many were anticipating would lead the Sports section. Still no. A swing and a miss. Strike two.

  • Library grounds have become dumping ground

    To the editor,

    Here I am again with my moans and groans about something needing improvement, at least in my mind.

    It’s the old complaint of “why is the public property of our library such a dumping ground for trash?”

    The exterior, including the playground and parking lot, seem to draw a class of non-academians who are not interested in using the interior of the place of knowledge but use/loiter in front of the building or other areas mostly on the west side of the building.

  • Lets fix the Affordable Care Act

    Dear editor,

    I am proud to be the President and owner of TPG Marine and even more proud that we offer employer-sponsored health care to our over 165 employees. Working for a tug boat company is dangerous work, and accidents do happen. When they do, our employees have access to the health care that they need.

  • Letter to the Editor - One person makes a difference

     In our everyday lives we hear all kinds of platitudes and most of them have substance in our life. One that I like is “Anyone can make a difference.” Susie Schroeder, a member of the Owen Dunn Unit 5 American Legion Auxiliary in Mt. Vernon is making a difference. One of the ways the Auxiliary helps military families is to clip discount coupons and mail them to overseas commissaries. The manufacturers will honor the coupons up to 6 months after the expiration date. The coupons are a great help to our military families living overseas on tight finances.
