Letter: Traffic flow would spur commerce

I have read many articles about annexation and working with other counties concerning commercial growth. Not once have I read where an idea would give reason for a business or company to move to the central location of Indiana.

As a person and taxpayer of Madison County, here is one idea for those who are leaders of towns and cities in different counties with traffic flow of truckers of goods.

Extend State Road 128 on east, past Indiana 9 to Interstate 69 in Delaware County toward Muncie. County Road 800 North is already in place going here, so the cost would be little. This way much could be gained in this venture. County Road 200 West leads from Indiana 128 south to Raible Avenue that crosses White River; the four-lane bridge leads on south to 38th Street that leads on to others to Flagship that leads to I-69 south of Anderson — making great traffic flow.

If need be, put the airport to the north in place of the landfill and make it bigger. Give access for Anderson and Muncie to the north off of Indiana 128. Opening up the north for who knows what all in growth. What better way to plan than with more ways to plan with.

First is to get INDOT to extend Indiana 128. It's a starting point in the building for jobs and growth for all. What mayor wants to start, you in Alexandria or who?

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
