Editor's Note: ’07 election letters reflected intensity



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. They thought they had a free shot at their target for which they would not be held accountable. They did not like it a bit when that turned out not to be the case. So be it.


• 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.

You can say that again

“I think, obviously, when you have change in progress, you’re going to rub someone the wrong way, and I think that’s probably what [Mayor Kevin] Burke did. And a lot of times that’s hard to overcome, depending on who you rub the wrong way.”

— Ann Murphy of Terre Haute commenting on the results of Tuesday’s municipal election
