Letters to the Editor

Voting early is easy

We have other commitments on November 4th and wanted to make sure to get our vote in so we voted early.

Will support conservative values

With elections quickly approaching, we recognize that we have a duty to elect individuals into positions of leadership that will support and encourage conservative and Christian values.

Inappropriate treatment of evaluation

Let me first state that I do not have a dog in this fight but in my many years of elected service I do not recall an elected board member being so ridiculed and berated in a public meeting as was reported at the...

Best handled privately

An open letter to Mr. Wayne Barker:

Disappointed in school board, superintendent

After reading the News-Banner coverage of the last (BHMSD) school board meeting, I was surprised and very disappointed by the behavior of our superintendent, Mr. Wayne Barker,  and some members of our school board.

Get involved, Get included

I appreciated your comments about whether we are an inclusive community. (Saturday Sub, Sept. 27) Now for the “however.”

Bluffton schools are No. 1

Bluffton is No. 1!

Unmanageable debt

This letter is in response to Mr. Wayne Barker’s letter that appeared in the Bluffton News-Banner on Monday, Sept. 8, 2014.

Superintendent addresses school project issues

As the petition/remonstrance period draws to a close on Sept. 15, I would like to address some common issues that have been brought to my attention from community members.

More people need to get involved

A petition drive will start to see if the Harrison Twp. voters and property owners want to allow the expansion of the grade school from Aug. 15 to Sept. 15.

The real judge has spoken

This letter is in response to Dave Schultz’s commentary of June 30, 2014.

It’s time to pray

In 1962, a serious mistake was made. Congress kicked God of school. They did that because an atheist was insulted that we took time out of school to pray. So we put God in a trunk.

Sad news for our country

When I read the front page of the Saturday, June 28 Bluffton News-Banner, I started to cry, especially for my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Thieves will be judged

It’s hard to believe that some idiot with a brain the size of a flea, had the nerve to walk into our gated back yard to steal our gazing balls from their stands and a little statue off the porch! What is this world...

Concerning the grade school addition

A couple years back, the Bluffton-Harrison School District just had to have a new artificial turf football field and a garage for working on buses.
