You Said It: About Pence tax plan, meth arrests and reservoir discussions

ANDERSON, Ind. — 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.

New poll shows Hoosier voters tepid on Gov. Pence’s tax plan. (Article published April 24.)

  •  “Like most things, looks good on paper but in reality we get next to nothing out of the deal. Besides I’m sure that a new tax would crop up to offset the tax cut.”

THB: Gov. Pence needs to get in touch with what the residents of this state really want.

Three suspects arrested and a child was found during a meth lab bust earlier this month. (April 20)

  •  “OK, so he was on probation and he had a lab in his home on March 10th? What in the world was he doing free? Does anyone not care that all these children’s lives were in danger with him that close to a school? Why wasn’t he already in jail? This is exactly why I have zero faith in Madison County. When is someone going to be held responsible for letting people be free when they should obviously be incarcerated?”

THB: Innocent until found guilty, but the comment includes some good questions.

Poetry helps ex-convict Michael A. Pierce overcome his personal battles. (April 21)

  • “Just one example of why it is so foolish to de-emphasize art, music and literature in schools. Science and math are of vital importance, but they don’t nurture our spirits or souls.”

THB: Agreed, one never knows where life will take you and what skill set you might need.

Chesterfield and Anderson residents turned out for a panel-style discussion on the proposed reservoir April 16. (April 17)

  • “There was no “discussion’ at all. A discussion is when two or more people exchange thoughts and ideas. This was a “presentation” totally staged event, geared to convince people of a false belief that somehow this “lake” is going to solve a contrived crisis!”

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: New glass ceiling is $12 an hour All those libertarians, tea party, conservatives (dupes of the rich) are leading America's middle class and poor into poverty and depression.

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.

  • Letter: Liberal says 'illegal' should be taboo Did you see where a well-known liberal wants to do away with the "I" word? 'I' as in "illegal."

  • NWS - HB0728 - World War 1 Local Bob Quinn 2 Editorial: WWI commemorated at 100th anniversary On April 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. There was overwhelming support. Neutrality was no longer an option. The sinking by Germany of the British ocean liner, the Lusitania, further committed Americans to the cause. Madison County answered the call, too.

  • Viewpoint: Panhandlers give wrong impression of our city First of all, let me start off by saying that I have as much empathy and compassion for those less fortunate as the next person.

  • Editorial: City overzealous in calling for Chamberlain probe In the aftermath of The Herald Bulletin's recent news report that City Councilman Rodney Chamberlain had been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in relation to basketball league funds, one question stands out.

  • OPN - Mootry column mug [Duplicate] [Duplicate] Primus Mootry: The African-American community toward a new narrative African Americans are entirely unique in the annals of American history and, perhaps, the whole history of mankind. This uniqueness demands an African American agenda and, with it, a new narrative, or way of articulating that agenda.
