  • Kiwanis reorganization
  • Ellspermann good choice to lead Ivy Tech

    Former Indiana Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann’s appointment Wednesday as president of Ivy Tech’s community college system should be good for Ivy Tech and its Tell City campus but may not be good for Gov. Mike Pence’s re-election chances.

    Ivy Tech has struggled in recent years – there was even a rumor the Tell City campus might close. Luckily, local efforts kept the center open.

    Even after all these years of covering commencements, the strains of Pomp and Circumstance inspire me with optimism. After all, I have high hopes for this year’s group of newly minted graduates.

    I look forward each spring to the traditions of covering at least one local commencement in Perry and Spencer counties.

    We all have stakes in how well these graduates do. They are the men and women who will go to college, join the military or head into the work force.

    May is National Foster Care Month and it gives us the opportunity to show how much we appreciate the work foster families do for so many children in Indiana.

    There are currently more than 6,300 Hoosier children living in non-relative foster homes due to child abuse or neglect.

    I cannot emphasize enough the impact that foster parents have on the lives of children.
