TERRE HAUTE —
Of course, some of those dishing the dirt in that mailing were offended by Nation’s letter and my decision to use it on Election Day. No surprise, really.

• To all those who took the opportunity to exercise their cherished right to vote in Tuesday’s municipal election. While voter turnout was light at 30 percent, those who did cast ballots are to be commended for their efforts.
• To Terre Haute North Vigo High School graduate Nate Blank for getting his college basketball career off to a great start with his team, Gardner-Webb, winning twice this week. The biggest victory was against powerhouse Kentucky in Lexington. Blank scored 12 points in that monumental upset.
