You Said It: About the Aults, mayor's Italy trip and Wall Street investing

Each week, 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.

 

Officials recall ‘disgusting’ conditions at Summitville farm owned by Daniel and Carrie Ault. (Article published Sept. 14)

  •  “We all need to make sure this does not go unpunished ...”

THB: The Aults face a litany of charges connected to the conditions found at the farm. All told, the two are co-defendants on 96 charges of improper disposal of a dead animal, 15 counts of cruelty to an animal, and two counts of neglect of a dependent child.

 

Anderson Mayor Kevin Smith leads foreign trade mission to Italy. (Sept. 19)

  • “We can only hope this is not just smoke and mirrors. A staggering 25 percent of Anderson residents are currently stuck living in poverty. Politicians again want us to believe that success is right around the corner, when it was the political organizations, which they represent, that created this economic hardship ... Repeal the trade laws that created our problem.”

THB: Let’s do hope it works. At least with this administration, we have someone who is getting the word about Anderson out there. You cannot sit here and hope and pray businesses will come to you. Smith and his team are being proactive.

 

THB editorial: Wealth gap traces to ability to invest. (Sept. 19)

  • “American equity and commodity markets are nothing more than a casino. Welcome to the Wall Street casino; sorry, high rollers only — no admittance for poor people — “We will take your cash, but don’t expect to get it back” reads the sign on the wall. Americans aren’t investing these days, they are gambling.”

THB: Wall Street investing is open to all and is a gamble. But so is life. Go ahead and roll the dice.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.
