Upset about traffic stop treatment


This officer said he offered her a ride but she refused; I don’t see this being as she had the babies with her. And if she did, he should have stayed until her ride came. How irresponsible can he be that he would leave them there, where anything could have happened? I thank Jesus for watching over them.

When her uncle called to ask about the car, and why she was left behind, the person he talked to wasn’t friendly at all.

I’m not sure if anything can be done about this or not, but I just wanted to let the people of Rushville know how their officers treat a young mother and her children. I hope he has no wife or children, because he surely wouldn’t treat them this way.

Thank you for reading. A very upset and concerned mother/grandmother.

Obama’s energy policy is flawed

Dear Editor:

On June 25, President Obama delivered a speech at Georgetown University on the issue of climate change. While I commend our president for his interest in protecting the environment, I am deeply concerned about the negative effects his plan will have on energy costs, jobs, and the economy as a whole.

President Obama said electricity rates would “necessarily skyrocket” under his administration. Making good on this promise, the president’s “climate action plan” imposes crippling regulations through executive fiat. According to the Institute for Energy Research, the EPA’s proposed rule restricting carbon dioxide emissions for new power plants will effectively ban coal-fired electrical generation.

Here in Indiana, we generate over 90 percent of our electricity from coal. This is a good thing. Coal is cheap, abundant, and has allowed our state to enjoy below average electricity rates. However, the president is now waging a “war on coal” that will kill jobs, slow our economy, and crush some of the poorest in our community with higher energy bills.
