Letters to the Editor

Thank you from Reality Store

Dear Editor,

MainSource Bank would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Corporate Sponsors: MainSource Bank, Duke Energy, Beta Sigma Phi NuGamma Sorority, RushShelby Energy, Copeland, Intat, and Pizza King of Rushville for their continued support of the Rushville BPW Reality Store TM held at Benjamin Rush Middle School on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2013.

We would also like to thank the teachers and aides along with the cafeteria and maintenance staffs at BRMS for all of their help, MainSource Bank, Remax, Farm Credit, Midwest Ag, Maximum Results, Copeland, Millers Merry Manor, Flatrock River Lodge, Rush Memorial Hospital, Rush County Police Dept., State Police, PU Extension Office, Rush County Clerk’s Office, Pizza Hut, Subway, Dairy Queen, the Retired Teachers Association and the past BPW members who all volunteered employees time and/or money to help with the various booths at this year’s Reality Store TM.

Without the support of the many businesses, organizations and volunteers the students at BRMS would not have the opportunity to participate and benefit from such a worthwhile program.

Tianne Ripberger, Chair

Nancy Rice, Rushville Branch Manager

No solutions offered

Dear Editor:

I appreciate the fact that Mr. Verlin Custer read my letter entitled “Local library system still living in the past,” but I would have been even more pleased had he read it carefully, understood its message, and in his response actually addressed the issue.

Mr. Custer seems to feel that I place all the blame on the failure of Rushville/Rush County to have a county-wide system on the county government. That idea is quite contrary to what I wrote.

What I, and perhaps other readers of the Republican, would have really appreciated from Mr. Custer would have been his take on the matter, presented in a lucid manner. If blame is to be placed, perhaps he could so place it. Much better than placing blame, however, would be the offering of solutions. Mr. Custer is apparently resorting to the ancient practice of “killing the messenger.”
