Letters to the editor

Dear Editor,

Girl Scouts give back especially during the holidays

Dear Editor,

During the holiday season Girl Scouts give back to the community by coming up with creative ways to support charitable causes. Many troops perform service activities that benefit animals like volunteering at animal shelters. Some have made blankets for children undergoing chemotherapy, read to them in the hospital, and spent time to help them enjoy the holidays despite their circumstances.

Troops also love to spend time with the elderly during the holidays. The girls make gloves, hats and blankets for people who are in nursing homes and can’t be with their families.The patients light up with happiness and enjoy the company of the girls. Some have commented about, “what a wonderful day it was and how much fun the girls were.” The seniors cherish their gifts for years to come.

The holidays are a wonderful time to be a Girl Scout - to feel the joy of giving and show that Girl Scouts is all about being leaders and giving to others.

For more information about Girl Scouts, visit or call 855-GSCIN-4U.

Let them cheer

Dear Editor,

I was in attendance at Southport High School on Saturday to see the Pirates beat North Central. I don’t live in Greensburg anymore but it is certain that when opportunity allows, I’m listening to the radio broadcast of Pirate games. I’m ecstatic that Greensburg won, but disappointed that Greensburg didn’t bring their cheerleaders. It makes me wonder what is wrong with school officials.

I recall when I was in high school. The sectional returned to Greensburg but we were terrible. It didn’t matter. The gymnasium was still the place to be on game night. There were good teams in Southeast Indiana that didn’t get recognized because the Indianapolis media considered anything beyond Shelby County to be out of their viewership.
