LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Kohl's Sign

Editor, Times-Union:

When Kohl's first opened on Ind. 15N, they had a scripture verse on the Kohl's sign at the entrance off of 15 on the brick sign. It is now gone. What happened to the scripture? What is the story behind the removal?

I so enjoyed the scripture being there!

Since Kohl's is a privately owned company, I would think that they would have the right to leave it there.

Is this another place where atheist or other religions are demanding that display of a scripture verses, etc. be removed? Did anyone else notice that at first it was there and now it is gone?

What is this nation coming to?

Commends Neumann

Editor, Times-Union:

This letter is to commend Jeffrey Neumann and Madison School. I am so proud of him and his school for what they stood up for on Veterans Day.

Saying the National Anthem, the Pledge af Allegiance, speaking of America's freedoms, thank you notes to the National Guard, then at the end singing Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." I still get tears when I hear this song.

It took a lot of guts to stand up and do what is right, especially in this day and age when there is so much controversy on our rights or not having the right to say anything with the word God in it. I think our Government has gone by the way-side anymore with the God issue. We need to remember we were put on this great earth by God and we have so many blessings and freedoms to be thankful for.

When our kids went to Madison, they never had the privilege of being under Mr. Neuwmann, they had William Farrar, another really great guy!

But again, my heart goes out to Mr. Neumann and his school kids for standing up for what is right and going ahead and doing it, I am so proud of you.

Blessings to all,
Margaret Anne Oswalt

What is this nation coming to, indeed, Janice Engelberth.

These are real, right? You just can't spoof this kind of crazy.

I'm sorry. I missed most of that. I was distracted by the new masthead.
