On to state

Dear Editor:

Thursday, November 18th, the Switzerland County Buginators scored high at the Entomology competition in Brownstown, Indiana.  They will be going to state in December.

It is always refreshing to know that there are wonderful adult volunteers like Trina Hart and Jenny Slover who have prepared these children for a job well done. The children themselves have worked so hard and it was so great to see their smiles and excitement that night. There are so many great opportunities in life and I am so grateful for the chance for my daughter Megan to be able to be a part of this wonderful club.

Many thanks to the wonderful hard working volunteers in our lives.

Recount process

To the Editor:

Concerning the article in the Vevay paper: Democrats will officially request Auditor recount. According to the article, Mike Jones, chairman of the Switzerland County Democratic Central Committee, will request a recountfor auditor, he says, “I hope that this process is not seen as adversarial” and then “to make sure the process is correct.”

My opinion is this process is adversarial if you read the preceding paragraph where Mike Jones says, “Not all precincts (which is 12) have to be included in the count, only six of the 12 precincts will be counted.” Why? On its face the statement and process smells (and not a pleasant odor).

I understand the reason and legality for a recount in such an instance, but count all of the votes, not just some, that even sounds bad. A final thought. I’ll bet a dime to a hole in a doughnut they will find just enough votes to give the Democrat the victory.
