To address the detailed note-the transfer of a license plate, a driver has 30 days to transfer a plate from one vehicle (typically a sold vehicle) to another vehicle (typically a new vehicle). However, the paperwork showing that the transaction must be in the vehicle at the time of the stop and must be completed accurately. If the driver can produce the paperwork for the judge when they appear, it is the judge’s discretion to dismiss the ticket at the court date. Towing fees are not set by nor are they or collected by the Police Department. Fees are managed by a third party.
It has been my desire to not respond publically to complaints such as this as some complaints are proven to be totally unfounded. This situation deserves my response as the accusations made and the picture it portrayed of the Rushville Police Department did not accurately illustrate the incident. The perception being portrayed was incorrect and it needs to be stated as such.
Ultimately, the Police Department is tasked with the motto to “Protect and Serve” and we should continue to demand that response.

Lawmakers have a lot of nerve
Letter to the editor:
Congress has just stooped to a new low by exempting itself and its staffers from Obamacare (WSJ editorial 8/5/13). It seems that our legislators who make $174,000 a year and their staffs have balked at having to pay at the same rate for their own insurance as the rest of us. If our leaders who make $174,000 are balking at the cost, how about the rest of us who might not make quite as much?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will not be affordable (costs will go up) and will not improve access to care (access will go down). Everyone may have an insurance card, but they will not have equal access to providers of care.
