The Herald Bulletin

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.

A seven-mile, 2,000-acre lake has been proposed for the Anderson area. (Article published March 15)

THB: As another reader has commented: Yes, it is a big idea but the only way to get the area out of the situation it is in is to go for big ideas … if we keep doing what we have always done then what will we get?



A Sears Hometown Store will return to Anderson at the site of the former Family Christian Store in the 2000 block of University Boulevard. (March 13)

THB: It’s all good: Another local retail outlet, local investors and some jobs.



Police say the adults behaved irresponsibly in the March 10 accident that killed three, saying the accident was a result of a “speed game” (March 14)

THB: Tragic.



Indiana Gov. Mike Pence opposes provision to expand gambling. (March 13)

THB: Agreed, this proposal does not expand gambling, it enhances it. Hoosier Park is a great venue, a good community partner and provides many jobs. Let’s not jeopardize that.
