School doesn’t need 2 swimming pools

In regard to Greg Bevington’s recent letter to the editor regarding the repairs and renovations done at Maconaquah High School, I have a couple of questions. Is it true there are two Olympic size swimming pools at this school? Are these two pools part of the renovation and repair to be part of the multimillion dollar renovation?

Why does a school in a small town in Indiana need two swimming pools? Does Peru High School and North Miami High School have swimming pools? If your response is that these two schools have access to one or both of the Maconaquah High School pools, then my response to this is “that’s nice.”

I just wonder how many people who will be voting June 20 realize there are two pools located at this school?

There’s hate coming from talkers on left

I would like to respond to Mr. Dick’s article on the Opinion page on June 11. Mr. Dick’s opinion that conservative talk show hosts are to blame for violence is an absolute outrage. Using Mr. Dick’s logic, I would like to point out some of the violence that has come from the left.

We have the Unibomber and his terrorist activities that were brought about by a deranged view of the environment. Should we blame Al Gore for the Unibomber’s actions? What about ELF? How much damage has it done to private property? It is the No. 1 domestic terror organization in the U.S.

Go back to the ’60s and ’70s. What about the Weathermen? Oh wait, we can’t talk about that organization since one of its former members has ties to the current president.

All you have to do to understand how much hatred is on the left is to turn on the Keith Olbermann show. I can only stand about five minutes of his show before I have to turn the channel because of all of the hatred he churns up. How many leftist terrorists is he inspiring to commit violent acts?
