(A local radio station) needs to get rid of its morning show hosts. The woman is a screechy shrew, and the gentleman does not need to constantly refer to his infertility problems.

I keep seeing where projects and consulting fees will be paid for out of the $75 million Legacy fund. My question is how much is actually left in the fund? Looks like a spending spree to me!

Under Indiana law, it is no longer required that a person has a handgun permit while legally hunting within the state. Also, a permit is not required while a handgun is transported between a place of residence and a gun range. Now these are common-sense gun laws that we can all live with.

A rich guy pulls up to a stoplight in his expensive car. He looks over and spots a homeless man. Did he laugh and flip him off? No, the car's price tag did it for him.

In the Jan. 3(Letter to the Editor) written … in support of HJR6 (now HJR3), I just want to say, “Amen!” You are exactly right in your letter! Contact your local representatives and demand they support (it)!Let the people decide, and keep the family units one man/one women together!

The CC (closed-captioning) on TV: Why do they keep typing words on the same line? Or else they “skip” a sentence or two so you don't get the “last line.” Or they go so fast, I can't read it. Who is responsible for CC? Who do I call when there's a problem with it (on TV)?

Shame on (a local hospital) for its terrible cafeteria service. No service at night after 7:30 p.m. for visitors or the nurses. Vending machines — with unhealthy choices. The food served is cold and tasteless from 4-7:30 p.m. I'm going to (another hospital) for real food!
