Limit bus rides
Written by: Misty Thurber Fenelton
As a parent, I am troubled that Butler School Board members say they prefer realignment plans that will split up the K-6 school arrangement in the elementary schools. Instead, they favor shutting down neighborhood elementary schools and busing students to either a K-3 or K-4 arrangement, with grades 4-6 or 5-6 transferred to the junior high school.

Marcellus facts
Written by: David J. Spigelmyer President, Marcellus Shale Coalition, Cranberry Township
A recent letter to the editor from Len Schoettker is riddled with misinformation and claims that simply run contrary to the facts. Eagle readers and my neighbors in Butler County deserve accurate information, not rhetoric designed to divide this community and instill fear.

Not so lopsided
Written by: Art Mathers Prospect

Missed a spot
Written by: C. Murray Winslow Evans City
Since Pittsburgh has recently put on a pothole filling blitz, I would like to ask PennDOT to also adjust the joints on state Route 68, Segments 110 and 120, between Harmony Junction and Minetta Springs.

On the wrong path
Written by: Gary Neely Connoquenessing Township
I believe Gov.-elect Tom Wolf will show himself to be a tax and spend liberal who will raise the cost of living, increase taxes and diminish job growth by driving small businesses under with taxation and burdensome regulations. Time will tell.

Fooled again
Written by: Raymond Borkoski Ford City
I have grown to hate the word compromise in every political sense. When either party uses the word compromise, it is applied in terms of what special interests want from the Republicans or Democrats, not what We the People need.

Where’s our paver?
Written by: Doug and Bonnie Custead Butler
Diamond Park is a beautiful memorial to all of Butler County’s Veterans. When our uncle, Emery Drescher of Saxonburg, celebrated his 96th birthday this past July 2, we decided to honor him and his years of military service by purchasing a paver. Uncle Emery was thrilled.

Unethical placement
Written by: Dianne Connelly Weatherburn Heights Middlesex Township
After reading Bob and Kim Geyer’s article in the Nov 13 Butler Eagle, I felt it was time we should all pause to take a few breaths and ponder over what is happening to our community.
