Letters to the editor

Thank you

Dear Editor,

We would like to thank everyone for all their help and kindness during my husband and our father’s illness and death.

Especially, Flatrock River Lodge, Decatur County Hospice, the Arlington Church, Mosters and Darrell Cooper of Family Worship Center.

And for all those who came to celebrate his life and all those stories told on him.

Sincerely,

Phyllis Cherry

Kay, Lyn, Bobette, Juanita, Doug and Craig

Thank you

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Milroy Community Club, the Anderson Township Volunteer Fire Department, the Milroy Masonic Lodge #139, the Milroy Economic Development Corporation and the Psi Iota Xi Sorority, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jemmy Miller and the Rushville Street Department for cleaning State Road 244 in Milroy on Saturday, April 26. I want to extend a special thank you to Johnny Wood and Chas Thomas of the street department for their expertise and coming to Milroy with the street cleaner. I think the street looks good and removing all of the sand and gravel from the winter snows will certainly help with the maintenance and drainage of the street.

Again, thanks to everybody who helped.

Robert N. Jackman, D.V.M.

Retired State Senator

Walking path not needed

Dear Editor,

Not all that went on in the county commissioners meeting in which the Rushville mayor asked to seek monies for a walking trail from Rushville to Homer-Manilla area (was reported).

After the mayor was allowed to speak, I spoke up against the idea. I said there’s plenty of room to walk on the walk around the park. To which the mayor said that’s just the problem, you people from out in the country are coming in here and walking here, but have paid no taxes (city).

This area, that used to be railroad tracks, has by more than a half is now farm ground on yards. Some people paid for the areas (rail bed) some have just taken it over. I’m not the governor, but I firmly believe that those farmers or home owners that cleared the trees and brush on this, more or less abandoned rail bed, it should be theirs.
