On second burglary at Dubes Jewlery in less than a year: Owner Ken Corey is a sweetheart. I had no idea he was still working. I thought the kids had taken over. I used to stop in and chat with him all the time when I worked downtown.

—Coreen M. Smith

I know Ken Corey, and he does NOT deserve this. Ken, maybe time to retire!

On Thursday Gazette story, “Those we lost: Local folks who quietly made a difference”: Well done, Janesville Gazette. I wish all media outlets would take the time to do this. What a nice tribute.

On Janesville native losing more than 300 pounds: Way to go, Travis Miller! Keep it up! Glad you decided to make a change for the best!

—Sherrie Dorsey

Travis, thank you for sharing your story. You’re amazing and your willpower is amazing. You are an inspiration to many. Keep up the amazing work!

I wish I had the willpower. I feel like I don’t even know where to begin.

On the end of Saturday bingo at St. Patrick School: Why can’t they move the bingo to somewhere else in town for the people to have their fun on Saturday nights? In this article (“Saying goodbye: After 44 years, St. Patrick’s bingo is ending”), it says it brings in $91,000. That money could be used for other things in the city. The article also says this bingo lets kids age 10 come in and play. That is a very good thing!

—Justin Schroeder

To all the volunteers, past and present, thank you for all your service. Your work built a wonderful community and built many lasting memories.

This was our parish for almost 30 years until we retired and moved. Our son attended school here, and I taught preschool. It breaks my heart to hear what has happened to this “family.” My thoughts and prayers for everyone.
