Constitution Day

Hardin County Attorney Darrel Meyer and Deb Crosser are co-chairing next week's Constitution Day program that will take place at the Hardin County Courthouse square on Sept. 16. The program includes volunteers - in costume - delivering famous speeches from various founding fathers in America's history. The event also includes patriotic music, and a freewill donation meal.

How does one whittle down the speeches of America's founding fathers? Darrell Meyer is finding it’s a difficult task.

With assistance from Deb Crosser, the Hardin County attorney is co-chairing a Constitution Day event that will be held Thursday, Sept. 16 on the north steps of the Hardin County Courthouse in Eldora. It will include patriotic music and character speeches from some of the country's most famous figures, including former presidents Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, as well as civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I see that Mr. Meyer and Deb Crosser say nothing about open/conceal carry weapons at this event. Did they request that people not bring weapons. No, they did not. So the school district puts South Hardin students in the center of a group good with guns at this clearly political event. Darrell Meyer is complicit with removing the public comment time from the Board of Supervisor meetings. Sounds like Mr. Meyer suffers from constitutional confusion.
