Great admiration for accused doctor

This letter is in support of a fine doctor, my rheumatologist, Dr. Henry Davis. I have been a patient of Dr. Davis for many years and I hold him in high regard for his medical and caring treatment of my serious joint problems.

My admiration for Dr. Henry Davis as a physician is shared by so many of his patients.

Thanks for info on Seelyville church

Thank you to Brian Boyce for the interesting and enlightening article concerning the possible closing of Holy Rosary Church in Seelyville, which appeared in the Terre Haute Tribune-Star on Monday, Aug. 6. Also, thanks to the Tribune-Star for publishing the article. The article shed some light on rules for closing a church but it also gave reasons for keeping a church open.

I am one of the nine children of John and Anna Butwin referred to in the article and naturally I am greatly concerned about this situation. Thank you for publishing the article and please continue to keep the public informed.

— Helen M. (Butwin) Meunier


Bringing an end to bullying in schools

In the United States, bullying in our schools is pervasive. For many people, the devastating effect can be harmful throughout their lives.

Mohandas Gandhi, in his struggle to free India from the imperialism of the British Empire, began each day with a prayer: “I will do injustice to no one today, but I will not stand by idly while injustice is done to anyone.”

Let us challenge administrators, teachers and staff to teach the wisdom of Gandhi.

Let us challenge students that their words and actions be the message of Gandhi.

With Mahatma Gandhi’s indomitable courage and the unshakable resolve of the Indian people, British imperialism came to an end in India. With the same commitment and perseverance, the scourge of bullying will come to an end in American schools.
