To the Editor:
To all of you that sit on the Brownsburg Town Council — we don't want this. People are going to lose their homes if you do this. Our schools are already falling behind other school districts in Central Indiana. They need more money, not less money and more students.
It is a sad day when a handful of people set out to change the character of our town with utter disregard for other people that live here.
In case you were wondering, I will not be voting for any of you again. You have let us all down.
I have seen signs around town stating the Brownsburg Town Board wants to annex in more acres of land so Brownsburg will have future growth, however at what price? I have two children in the Brownsburg School system. When we moved to Brownsburg 15 years ago the top reason we choose Brownsburg was the excellent school system and the small town feel, however that has changed in the last 15 years.
You have cut the school budget so tight that our schools are forced into class sizes that the schools are clearly not equipped to handle, however we have a town hall that cost over $15 million to build and is used by few. Where are our priorities?
My oldest son had a science class a year ago in a class lab built for 24 students but there were 32 students assigned to his class. Needless to say, he didn’t really learn all he could have if the teacher could have done more experiments with hands on opportunities. Shame is he really liked science until that year.
Per a letter I received, the school board has informed the town council that they cannot handle the expansion of students that this annexation will cause, however you are ignoring this. How can you ignore the input of one of the most important selling points for people moving to Brownsburg, the quality of our school system?

There was a wide array of reactions to Seattle DB Richard Sherman’s post-game “interview” with Erin Andrews following the Seahawks’ NFC title win over San Francisco.
Mine? Laughter, as the shout-down was the most entertaining thing I saw all day.

Butler is still a long way from saving its 2013-14 men’s basketball season, but if the Bulldogs turn it around fully and reach the NCAA Tournament, it will have started this past Saturday at Hinkle Fieldhouse.

A fine season for the Indianapolis Colts ended with a whimper Saturday at New England, but in recent team history, it was far from the most disappointing postseason defeat.

The Indianapolis Colts’ miraculous 45-44 wild card victory over Kansas City on Saturday ended just after 8 p.m. After leaving Lucas Oil Stadium, it took until around midnight for the pounding in my head to subside.

Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
