Letters to the Editor


Today, if the Rushville Republican had a page that posted the current Police Officers pictures at the top of the page and their names on the bottom of the page, like other promotions, I bet less than 25% of the citizens of Rushville could match all of them correctly. Not only is this a sad commentary for Rushville but has the potential of making Rushville a more dangerous place to live.

I have had this conversation, personally, with then Mayor-Elect Pavey, and also with Councilmen Craig Smith and Brian Conner. Additionally Bob Bridges and Darin McGowan are former members of the Police Department. Additionally, Councilmen, Bradley Berkemier and Brian Sheehan have been observers of Rushville all their lives.

Personalities should not get in the way of sound judgments. Whether, Take Home Cars, Longevity or Specialty Pay is considered, a viable solution must be found for the safety and efficient service to the citizens of Rushville.

Thank you

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Rush County churches, I would like to thank the many wonderful people who made the Community Thanksgiving Meal such a success this year. With the help of many generous folks, we were able to prepare and deliver 678 meals. What a wonderful Christian outreach this ministry has been for so many! Our thanks go out to the many businesses who contributed this year: The Park Restaurant, Just Rite, McDonalds, The Stylists at the Shampoo Bowl, Miller Produce(Marvin and Janice Miller), Rosfield Electric, Jane Smiley CPA, Family Video, Save-a-lot Grocery Store, the Rush County Food Pantry and Klosterman Bakery of Morristown.

In addition, a huge thank you to the countless number of volunteers from the community, the students from all the schools, the Jr Leaders, and members of our county wide churches who prepared food, took deliveries, or assisted with clean up. It can’t be said enough how blessed we are to live in such a caring and supportive community!!
