Letter to the Editor: Center’s Event a Success

Dear Editor:

The Fish Fry/Mountain Oyster and Auction in support of the Pattonsburg Multi Purpose Center held on Jan. 11 went over very well. We made just over $7,000, allowing us to catch up on bills and to keep us going through the spring of this year.

Without the help from the Lions Club, especially Brian Teel, we would be closed. They paid for the meat and provided the fryer

Letter to the Editor: About Our Town

Dear Editor: 

Someone needs to address the current situation in Gallatin. It seems that there is a growing concern on the part of some that utility rates are too high. A year or so ago the same thing was going on and a petition was being circulated. A few months back I heard that there was a lot of buzz on Facebook about high utility rates.

Dear Editor,

I would like thank the people of Daviess County for the support they have given me over the years. I began working in the courthouse in 1979, serving eight years as Deputy County Clerk. Then in 1986, was elected to office. I truly appreciate the opportunity to serve the people of Daviess County.

I have seen several different faces in the courthouse over the years, 15 of them

Letter to the Editor: Accurate Reporting

Dear Editor:

In the interest of accurate reporting in your newspaper, I believe you need to recheck some of the items you publish.

For example the picture of the water that appears on the front page of last week’s paper says in part “Pictured is the Grand River under the Honey Creek Bridge located on Hwy. 13 south of Gallatin.”

The Grand River does not flow under the Honey Creek

Dear Editor,

I really enjoyed Freida Marie Crump’s posting (read it every week) — it was especially good this week on what graduates need to watch out for!

Thanks for your opinions, but this week’s really was a good one!

Letter to the Editor: More North Daviess Support

Dear Editor,

When I first moved into the North Daviess R-3 School District, I considered all options for educating my son, including home schooling and paying tuition to a neighboring district. It was most feasible for us to choose North Daviess R-3. From the very first day, I was impressed.

On my son’s first day of kindergarten he was greeted by first name by the principal. He made friends that

Letter to the Editor: The North Daviess Proposal

Dear Editor:

I cannot merely explain in words what this school has done for me. When I first came to this school I thought it would be some hick school. Now I wish I could relive my earlier years at the school, so I can go back and thank everybody that helped me become what I am today. My whole family changed and became so much better once we came

Dear Editor:

I taught fifth and sixth grades at Jameson in 1958 to 59. I had 16 fifth graders and 15 sixth graders.

My daughter graduated from Coffey in 1978. My son graduated from Coffey in
