Letters to the Editor

Thoughts from an angry woman

To the editor: Let’s hear it for angry women. As an 82-year-old woman, I’ve seen a lot in my lifetime, and what I see happening now does make me angry. I see a segment of our country being told to fear and hate their fellow Americans, that hurling insults at those who don’t agree with ...

Thank you, Toronto

To the editor: To all who organized, volunteered for, came out or participated in any way to Karen McAdoo’s fundraiser, all of her family, Nancy and I want to say thank you — you are amazing. To her special friends, her family, the churches, the schools, the band, the city of Toronto ...

I.C. students deserve support

To the editor: Voters of the Indian Creek Local School District have the opportunity to move this community forward, to offer our students a beautiful, safe school district. We can bring the district into compliance for accessibility and offer state-of-the-art facilities; we can offer ...

Erase hate, show love for all

To the editor: The outrage over the March 31 column in the Herald-Star by Stephen Krason (“Items lead to questions about outlook of newspaper.”) erupted quickly after it appeared, and for good cause. Krason bemoaned the publication of a same-sex engagement announcement, as well as a photo ...

Writer’s anger was ill-placed and unfair

To the editor: I am writing in response to the guest column written by Stephen M. Krason that appeared in the Herald-Star on March 31 (“Items lead to questions about outlook of newspaper.”) The writer, Krason attacked the Herald-Star for publishing material he found morally ...

Questions about progressives

To the editor: Jefferson County’s progressive self-righteous, old, white women comment that the Herald-Star should not publish alternate political opinions. They are typical communists who believe they should determine and control what is to be said, printed or thought. They claim to go to ...

Bond issue is much needed

To the editor: When I was active with the Friends of Indian Creek School District, I was involved in many levies and bond issues. Most of them were unsuccessful. I never understood why people in this area are very generous, except when it comes to the education of our children. Indian Creek ...
