Dear Editor:

Daviess County Public Water Supply District #2, servicing portions of both Daviess County and Caldwell County, has transitioned into the 21st century by currently replacing old, customer-read meters with new meters that obtain the readings remotely when driving by. The results have been accepted positively by most customers.

Meters that have been in use for 20-plus years have a tendency to slow down or stop, whereas the new

Letter to the Editor: PWSD #2

Dear Editor:

We have an on-going, unresolved problem with PWSD#2.

Mid summer 2013, new drive by readable water meters were installed. All new meters were all zeros to start with stationary zero at end of reading. First month our reading was 1,305 gallons, our normal usage for past eight years, but was billed for 13,050 gallons! We do not use that much water in a year!

Letter to the Editor: Penney Around Gallatin

Dear Editor:

Thank you for the article on the life of J.C. Penney. He was a great businessman and a man with a great sense of humor. There is a story he often told about one of his many trips to Gallatin.

Dear Editor:

The following is the conservative policy position, practice and plan. The rich run the country because we own it. We set prices and decide who pays the taxes and fees. Buckup, Buckie… you and I need to get over it.

Shelf service means no service – get over it!

Our babysitters are called teachers – get over it!

Promises are not kept. Why? – get over it!

Letter to the Editor: Our Country’s Freedoms

Darryl,

Looking forward to Thanksgiving, I am hopeful and thankful for the freedoms that we still enjoy in our country, albeit barely.  Our freedoms stand on weakened ground right now.  Sure hope you have space to print this article taken from the link below.

Letter to the Editor: About GMOs

Dear Editor:

Genetic Modified Organisms (GMOs) are naturally modified in fact every second of every year. All reproductive life in our air, water, ground, and on earth are being genetically modified continuously. Most changes are not improvements in the organisms. Improvements are rare but, in the long term (millions of years) may be betterments, most from other factors, in few cases that survive.

Genetic workers have learned to improve organisms

Dear Editor:

I just wanted to comment on the recent activity by the Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail Administration’s proposal for extending the current sales tax, indefinitely, and possibly adding two new counties to our current (DeKalb, Daviess) jail program. This all sounds confusing but I think we should keep in mind some basic principles that once government institutes a tax it never leaves us and stays forever.

When this sales
