Don Locke: Looking Through Bifocals

Some folks in our past, and in our more recent, have said some pretty worthwhile stuff that we can take to the bank. Since much of this worthwhile stuff comes from the Bible, let's establish that authority first-off.

Cheryl Hughes: Purse Man

My Career As A Woman


You know why most men don’t carry purses?  They have pickups.  I have a few guy friends, so I have an opportunity to see what they carry around in their trucks, and my purse doesn’t hold a candle. 



Tiffany Hampton: Life in Logansport

Tiffany Hampton and son Tucker

As a child I can remember being afraid of the dark.  It's actually a fear that I haven't ever outgrown.  Now that I'm an adult, I just don't dwell on it like I did as a child.  During the storm on Friday night, our power went out while everyone was sleeping.  Of course, being pregnant, I'm up plenty thru the night. I   I was getting back into the bed and trying to get my nest made when it happened. The bathroom light, which we leave on, blinked a few times and darkness.  All that leads me to this....


Coal bashers between ‘black rock’ and a hard place

In “Catch-22,” author Joseph Heller reports that “Group Headquarters was alarmed, for there was no telling what people might find out once they felt free to ask whatever questions they wanted to.”

This had to be stopped, which Colonel Korn succeeds in doing by implementing a rule governing the asking of questions.

Eric Hatcher: Praying Still Works

A Healing Is For You- Mark 5:25-26 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.
First thing I want to say is if people were healed in Bible days then it can happen even today. Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.


Against the Grain by: Andy Sullivan

I’ve noticed that, as I get older, I get more opinionated.  There’s both good and bad to that axiom.  It’s good for me because, well, I write an opinion column.  It’s kind of my job to have an opinion. Also, if you didn’t have an opinion and voice it, people won’t know what you think.  In certain instances, you will be asked for input, your opinion.  People want to know, and you should give that information.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

The month of May is packed with tradition: May Day, Derby Day, Mother’s Day, primary election day, and Memorial Day. All of these cultural elements occur within four weeks.


Don Locke: Looking Through Bifocals

We were going to up-grade now through a small patch of woods. Granddad didn't seem any worse for the wear; I was breathing hard and sweating. It was a couple of hours into morning and a month into summer. The sun was already hot this early. Granddad was carrying the heavy half of the house jack; I was carrying what was supposed to be the lighter half. It didn't seem that way now. I was probably somewhere around my eleventh summer. Granddad was in his seventies, but still a strong man.

Cheryl Hughes: Pack Rat

My Career As A Woman

Have you ever seen the Canadian comedy series, “The Red Green Show?”  It’s one of my favorites.  Red and his friends are a group of misfit men who belong to an organization called the Possum Lodge.  They have all kinds of mantras like, “If it ain’t broke, you’re just not tryin,” and, “If the women don’t find you handsome, they can at least find you handy.”  Red has a segment on his show called the “Handy Man Corner.”  The segment features all kinds of DIY projects using things you have lying around your place just collecting dust.  Many of the projects involve the “Handy Man’s Secret Weapon


Needed: Constitutional, not situational, restraint

Ever since John Adams, America’s second president, tried to force individual states to deport some non-citizens and punish “seditious language” unfriendly to his administration, Washington has encroached upon individual states’ sovereign power.

Granted, Adams was doing his best to help a new nation that, literally, was in survival mode. Had the Pew Research Center existed during his time, it would have offered poll after lopsided poll expressing solid doubt about whether this fledgling experiment in representative republicanism would ever make it even to the 19th century.
