  • Kiwannis auction is more than bidding

    This Friday and Saturday would be great days to make your dinner plans as pick-up orders or home delivery from local restaurants.  The temperature is going to plunge and it’s a great night of entertainment and bargains that begins early at 6 p.m.

    It’s Kiwanis Charity Auction time and if you haven’t seen it or heard about it then you haven’t been paying attention. Kiwanis Charity Auction information has been on local cable television, local radio and the list of auction items have filled a page of this week’s Grant County News and Express.

  • Issues may be addressed Feb. 5

    The first week of the 2013 Regular Session of the General Assembly is now complete.  The legislature is now recessed for three weeks to give members time to organize, review bills, and draft others. We will reconvene February 5 for the remaining 26 days of session.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    Where did respect
    for others go?
    I would like to commend Deborah Lucas Angel for her recent column “What a waste!”. She was right on the money concerning laziness of shoppers. As an employee of Wal-Mart, I see this everyday. When we find items from the freezer or coolers, we are required by the state to throw these items away. We also throw away any item that the customer leaves at the checkout aisle because they do not want them and do not feel it is their place to put them back where they got them.

  • Less mess the second time around

    The second time around, things are always a little bit easier.

    And, when it comes to potty training, that is the best news possible.
    When my oldest son finally mastered using the toilet life just got a little bit easier.

    We did not have to spend ungodly amounts of money on diapers anymore.

    Our house did not constantly smell like a garbage dump. (Although the bathroom tended to have a pee smell when his aim wasn’t the best at first.)

  • Perhaps . . .

    It’s not the “fiscal cliff” that is so bothersome about the fiasco of the last few months.  No, it is the audacity and arrogance of our elected officials that were “battling it out” to “try” to come up with an appropriate plan.
    Yeah, right.

    No one would give.  Republicans and Democrats were only separated by their platforms.  Our supposedly austere “leaders” were laughing out loud at suggestions from their opposition; sneering at proposals from the other side.  

  • How can you help? So glad you asked

    We often ask our readers to submit items to us.
    In the past we’ve asked people to share their favorite holiday memory or the best Christmas gift they’ve ever received.

    We enjoy hearing from our readers and believe that readers like to read about other readers’ lives, interests and hobbies.
     

  • Session is short, but off to a good start

    FRANKFORT - With the holiday season behind us, the General Assembly returned to Frankfort to prepare to deal with several crucial issues facing our Commonwealth.
    The first task of the 2013 legislative session was to elect leadership for the respective caucuses, receive committee assignments and essentially get our footing as we get ready for the work ahead of us.  It’s also a time of transition for me and the other new members in the House as we prepare for the first legislative session.

  • Have a heart, I’m glad I’ve got mine

    The reports of my death have only been the wishful thinking of those whose feelings I have somehow injured during my past 39 years as a community journalist.

    To those offended individuals, groups, political parties, zealots of egomaniacal causes and Indiana University basketball fans, I offer my apology and proclaim that because of modern medical technology you have to deal with me for one final year.
