You Said It: About copper thieves, ACS raises and the NBA D-League

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

Alternatives Inc. shelter victim of copper vandalizing. (Article published Dec. 11)

  • “The shelters rely on grants and donations to make them run. Then some bozo steals from them. Wrong, Just wrong.”
  • “Bad enough someone would be scum enough to even do this but to do this to a group such as a women’s shelter puts them on a new level of low life. So sad!”

THB: Thieves don’t make that distinction, they are not smart enough. This is a rampant problem all over town, especially with the amount of abandoned houses in our community. See something suspicious, call the police.

Most Anderson Community Schools administrators got raises approved last week and a group of teachers protested the decision during a school board meeting. (Dec. 10)

  • “I wouldn’t say administrators hardly do any work, but I would say that if there is to be a raise, it should be across the board.”
  • “In his 35 year career with GM and Delphi my husband never got a raise without and first having an evaluation by his superiors. What’s the issue with evaluating employees and rewarding those who do outstanding work?”

THB: Agreed, all should be evaluated on their own merits and then compensated accordingly.

The Wigwam gymnasium could become the home of an NBA development league if plans proceed from a former area basketball coach, Terry Thimlar. (Dec. 4)

  • “The NBA D-League is the official minor league of the NBA. It is quite different than the CBA of recent years. Do your research of the quality of players and the quality of play in the NBA D-League, along with the support given by the NBA to the league before you create your opinion. The comment of “been there, done that” does not hold weight as you have not “been there, done that” with a team such as the Alley Cats and the CBA. Wake up fellow Andersonians and get with the big picture.”

THB: Let’s hope for the best use of the iconic facilty, whatever that might be.

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
