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: Veterans' stories of patriotism, loyalty are uplifting As a professor at Ivy Tech Community College, I continually see very diverse backgrounds of our students. This semester has been especially satisfying in that the class, Fundamentals of Public Speaking, has a myriad of circumstances and lifestyles. I have been fortunate to have three veterans in my class who have served in the Armed Services.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.

    I am a very upset grandparent. My grandson is being punished for having a bad language arts ISTEP score. Not only will they not let him take band, they have taken him out of the honors math that he was supposed to be in.
