You Said It: Sept. 3

About local rape victim, school food lunch program and city's business ranking

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.

Rape victim survived ‘horrific’ attack, police say. (Article published Aug. 27)

◆ “Wow, what an amazing example of how strong a human can be when faced with a trauma. Thank you for your courage, you inspire me, Mrs. Rudolf.”

◆ “I hope this brave lady keeps talking loud and long. God bless her.”

THB: She is an inspiration to all. By going public with this horrific crime she empowers herself and becomes less of a victim. Kudos, Mrs. Rudolf, not many of us would have the courage you do.

Some U.S. school districts make the decision to quit healthier lunch program. (Aug. 27)

◆ “Mine eat less than ever. The pizza even is a whole grain crust. My kids are so skinny and active it is not good that they don’t eat at school.”

◆ “Praying South Madison schools will do away with the program. My son loved their lunches before this went into effect. Now he just doesn’t eat and comes home starving every day.”

◆ “My kids’ school lunch used to be decent, now the food is just disgusting.”

THB: Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The healthier new federal lunch program is a way to combat this “growing” trend and to expose children to different fruits and vegetables.

Anderson named 64th best community for business and careers (Aug. 29)

◆ “Although I will admit things are better than say, five years ago. But I don’t know if I would rank us 64th in the nation right now. Businesses have announced they are coming to Anderson, but many aren’t here yet. I guess I can understand after reading the article and seeing that they took that into consideration. I would like to see what the list looks like five years from now. Hopefully we head in the same direction.”

  • 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.
