U.S. Postal Service earns $1.2 billion operating profit in fiscal year
Dear Letter to the Editor,

Last week, the U.S. Postal Service released its financial report for Fiscal Year 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014-Sept. 30, 2015). The $1.2 billion in annual operating profits reported by the Postal Service is terrific news that trends well for the future. The USPS' continuing financial upswing shows that dismantling services to the public would be precisely the wrong path to take.

Paris, London, Boston....
Purposely putting a bullet into the body of an innocent human being is pure evil. I cringe whenever I think about Adam Lanza executing 20 children at an elementary school. I feel a similar revulsion when I picture Dzhokhar Tsarnaev placing a bomb directly behind young spectators at the Boston Marathon -and walking away.

Changing clocks: It's time to return to Central Time Zone
To the editor,

Can Hoosiers handle moving their clocks forward and back?" Sure. "How well are we handling the wrong time zone?" Not well at all. Recent studies rank Hoosiers the seventh-most obese and least physically fit in the United States. Hoosier teens have the second- highest suicide attempt rate in the United States. Indiana teens have the highest death rate due to car crashes. 55,000 Hoosier students are chronically absent from school each year, the majority due to truancy. What is going on?

What happened to mayor's word that he would 'never' ask for another fee or tax?
To the editor,

I recall attending a council meeting, and I think they were still being televised when the current Mayor advised that once and for all he would never and he said "never" bring up taxing the residents or asking for another trash fee/tax !!!!...Pretty emphatic at the time of his earlier defeat regarding his trash tax/fee request !!!

W.A. Dix: Thanks for the help
Some things renew your faith in people, especially people helping people.

Last evening, I sustained a flat tire and pulled off the road, planning to call my roadside-assistance number. Before I could make arrangements, Jack Coy, from Kirklin, pulled up behind me and volunteered to change my tire, which he then did very quickly. A sheriff's deputy also stopped to assist with traffic control.
