You Said It: About painkillers, bank holdups, 2014 city budget

The Herald Bulletin publishes “You Said It,” a compilation of reader comments from coupled with responses by the newspaper’s editorial board.

Doctors to see new restrictions on painkiller prescriptions. (Article published Oct. 30)

  •  “The honest folks get hurt by this.”

THB: Something has to be done about the rampant pill problem in this country and specifically this town. Let’s hope that there is a plan in place for those who truly need these drugs to continue to receive them.

Two masked men walked into First Merchants Bank on Nichol Avenue last Monday and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash after a bank employee was struck in the head with a gun. One suspect has been arrested. (Oct. 30)

  •  “I swear, I don’t know why people rob banks, they always get caught sooner or later! Good job, APD!”
  •  “Amen! To the officers of APD, good job!”

THB: With cameras everywhere, especially in banks, it does seem foolhardy.

Anderson City Council approves 2014 budget. (Oct. 24)

  •  “So the new budget does not have funding for a new bus terminal. (saves money) The new budget does not have funding for a new fire station. (Saves money) No new positions in parks. (saves money) .... Sounds like the Democrat council is more interested in saving the money of the taxpayers than the Republican mayor.”

THB: Or the Democratic majority council just wants to put up a roadblock whenever the Republican mayor suggests something in the name of progress.
