You Said It: About eateries, education's importance and Lacy

ANDERSON, Ind. — Each Monday, The Herald Bulletin publishes “You Said It,” a compilation of readers’ comments from and the newspaper’s editorial board.

Golden Corral takes over the former Ryan’s location near the interstate. (Published Dec. 3)

  •  “Oh boy, what, another 25 minimum-wage jobs? Just like the boast of “138 new jobs” at Golden Corral. These new jobs only replace the 150 lost jobs from Ryan’s.”

THB: Jobs are jobs. Like it or not, the service industry is growing unlike other sectors of the economy. We are lucky that someone saw potential in the site and reopened it, instead of having another building sitting empty.

Black Expo, local leaders seek solutions to education numbers for black teens. (Dec. 4)

  • “When are people, black or white, going to learn the answer to getting out of poverty is education. Youth don’t have to end up like their parents. Parents need to instill the importance of an education long before their children ever start school. Having a single parent is an excuse, not a reason for poverty. There are thousands of people who grew up in poverty and went on to become successful, productive individuals. The difference, they didn’t make excuses or blame others for their plight, they did something about it.”

THB: Absolutely, education is the key for a better life, period. With so many programs available for financial help there is no excuse but laziness not to take advantage what is offered.

State education board votes to change licensing rules. (Dec. 5)

  •  “So, I guess my courses in psychological development of children and methodology of teaching math and student teaching do not mean anything? Goodbye, Tony Bennett. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!”
  • “I am so thankful Bennett will soon be out of office; definitely a “sore” loser!”

  • 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.
