  • North Clinton Scott’s in need of upgrade
    Since John Hubertz started the discussion of the “deplorable” situation at Kroger’s Southgate Plaza store (July 21), I would invite him and the Kroger’s managers to visit Scott’s on North Clinton Street.
  • Family paper must stand for biblical values
    Oh. Good. Grief. Gay/lesbian “marriages” are not even legal in Indiana and should not be legal in the entire United States of America.
  • It’s our responsibility to aid children in need
    In a July 21 letter, the writer was concerned that expansion of the Fort Wayne Community Schools’ free meal program will foster dependence and irresponsibility in the children and families who will benefit.

Web letter: In DC, progress vanishes with ‘business as usual’

I, for one, would like to have pushed a few officials off a cliff, from the White House through the halls of Congress. The fiasco of “negotiations” has certainly proven that Washington is no longer doing “business as usual” – that’s at least one promise kept! As bad as that was, it at least got some things done!

With all the talk, I don’t think I heard anything on obvious spending cuts: dealing with fraud, government waste, irrelevant projects and services and moving a lot into the private sector. That would have made a good start! That’s where we “everyday” folks start with our personal budgets. And on “transparency,” will we ever learn what hidden deals were done this time? Can we have another election? Please!
