Remember to thank a vet on Memorial Day
The Marine Corps League Detachment 1007 of Knox County would like to thank the Knox County community for the support given to the Toys For Tots campaign in 2018.
Today, Nov. 10, we honor all Marines in the 243rd birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps. This year, especially, we want to remember the late Lt. Col. Pat Dayson from Fritchton, a highly-decorated hero who was shot down twice during World War II.
In this hustle-bustle country we live in, we need to take time on Veterans Day to thank the veterans for the sacrifices they made to make our country a better place to work, enjoy life and a safe place to live. And likewise, let’s not forget those who are currently serving in the military ke…
As a proud alumnus of Vincennes University (Class of 1972), I commend any effort to maintain the University's relevance in Indiana; however, I view with alarm some current and planned endeavors.
I read with interest your editorial of Sept. 20, entitled “Now is the Time to Focus on the Future.” I would respectfully disagree with your conclusion that the City of Vincennes and its residents should embrace Vincennes University's plan to demolish four square blocks of the Vincennes Histo…
As chapter regent of the Francis Vigo Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, I feel the need to clarify some details in The Sun-Commercial's Sept. 30's report "VU to raze, build new DAR chapter house and visitor's center."
I am responding to your Editorial on Tuesday, June 12, with regard to the Historic Review Board’s decision to deny the further economic development on the property at Fourth and Vigo streets.
Thank you, Rama Sobhani, for your excellent commentary in the May 27 edition of the Vincennes Sun-Commercial and participation in the Burkhart Insurance City Wide Clean-up.
To those of the community who use McDowell Avenue to get to Walmart from Washington Avenue, you may remember that, on special occasions, we decorate the perimeter of our property by placing American flags along the road. This adds a recognition to the particular holiday and looks very patriotic.
I love irony, and that is what dripped from Bob Slayton’s recent letter disputing a “Fact Checking” story on Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mr. Slayton’s letter was an example of factual inaccuracies.
Memorial Day is a day when we as Americans, honor the brave heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice by laying down their life’s in order to preserve the freedoms we enjoy and it is important to honor those who died while wearing the uniform of the United States.
Your May 23 AP “Fact Checking” story about the Mueller investigation is really laughable. All it does is repeat partisan talking points under the guise of objective journalism. The fact that Hillary Clinton paid $12 million for Russian lies in the GPS Fake Steele Dossier used to launch the M…
In response to the editorial in the April 15 edition of the Vincennes Sun-Commercial, I do believe there was a clarity of purpose concerning the March for Science on April 14.
As we prepare to celebrate National Nurses’ Day (May 6) and Week (May 6-12), kudos to all area nurses who do so much every day, evening and night to ensure quality care of patients entrusted to them.
A big thank you to the Knox County Public Library for the beautiful display and information about the “Me Too” moments we have come to recognize and identify with as a society.
Sunday marks the 50th observance of Earth Day. Each of us can celebrate by reducing our driving, use of electric energy, and consumption of animals. That’s right!
As we near Earth Day on Sunday, it is important to realize that one of the smallest and most commonly littered items is also one that causes enormous harm.
To say that I was disappointed with The Sun-Commercial's coverage of Lt. Clay Cullen's procession back to Knox County would be a gross understatement! I understand that you couldn't show pictures of the processional in Wednesday's paper because it hadn't occurred before the time of printing.…
I want to express appreciation to the readers of The Sun Commercial who recently spoke out in support of adding my name to the Indiana Primary Ballot to represent the 8th District in the US Congress.
Sorry Rick, apparently after 35 years serving our country and retiring from the U.S. Army at the rank of a Major General, you are not Democrat enough to serve Knox County and the constituents of the 8th Congressional District.
I see some Vincennes University students got a little wild, they went to a pocket park on Main Street and they broke some articles, the police were called and surveillance tapes showed who did it.
I am writing about the AP FACT CHECKS columns often featured on your editorial pages. I don’t believe they are what they pretend to be: objective journalists setting the record straight.
Democratic Party Chair Sandi Stewart doesn't have the right to challenge anyone's right to run for office. A Democrat voting how she thinks they should? Has no place in this country's freedoms.
My thanks to the reporter for the nice article on correcting the current spelling of the names of some Vincennes streets. The information on Burnet Lane and Burnet Heights appeared without mishap.
The Jan. 25 edition of the Vincennes Sun-Commercial included an Associated Press article on page A6 entitled “Small Kentucky town rocked by school shooting.” Directly below the article was an ad for the “Gun and Knife Show” Jan. 27-28 to be held at the Gibson County Fairgrounds.
Indiana Constitution: Section 5. Legislative apportionment. The General Assembly elected during the year in which a federal decennial census is taken shall fix by law the number of Senators and Representatives and apportion them among districts according to the number of inhabitants in each …
If you believe the moon is made of green cheese, it’s obvious you have ignored a lot of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So it is with The Sun-Commercial's constant stream of editorials bashing the work of the Vincennes Redevelopment Commission.
The deep flaws in the Senate GOP's tax reform plan continue to emerge. The bill will trigger PAYGO and force devastating cuts to services like Medicare and student loan programs.
The week of Nov. 13-17 is American Education Week across the country. During this week, millions of educators, parents, students, and community leaders will join the National Education Association in raising awareness about the critical need to provide every child with a quality public education.
In this hustle bustle country we live in, we need to take time on Veterans Day to thank the veterans for the sacrifices they made to make our country a better place to work, enjoy life and a safe place to live, and likewise, let’s not forget those who are currently serving in the military ke…
The recent editorial from the Anderson Herald Bulletin addresses a very serious problem facing our country. Expanding waistlines are not only a serious threat to the health of our citizens but to the health of our economy.
I take issue with an article from the Terre Haute Tribune-Star re-printed in The Sun-Commercial on Oct. 10 (LITTLE HELP SEEN FOR WABASH VALLEY AREA IN TRUMP PROPOSED TAX CUTS) highly critical of President Trump’s tax cut and reform proposals.
The last regular lodge meeting for Flat Rock Lodge No. 348 was held Sept. 12 in the facility that has housed it for many decades, according to Worshipful Master Steve Menacher. Brethren from Robinson, Newton, Palestine, and St. Francisville, Illinois, were in attendance, along with the regul…
