  • COLUMN: Achieving Dr. Bosler’s dream

    BY REBECCA FENN, Guest Columnist

    When I returned from vacation recently, I was saddened to read of Dr. Bernie Bosler’s death. While I didn’t know him well, I was always impressed by his sincere interest in the well-being of our community. When we would run into each other at the post office, he always asked me how things were going with United Way and it wasn’t just a polite question – he really cared.

  • COLUMN: A much-needed vacation

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I’m usually not all that keen on summer getaways, at least as far as lying next to a pool or perched under a cabana drinking tequila.

    Beer commercials and cruise-company propaganda make it tempting to devote my vacation time to sand and surf, but I’ve seldom taken summer beach vacations. It’s hard getting away during the summer months. Other co-workers often take off during the summer and I’d rather spend time outdoors when the weather is more comfortable.

  • EDITORIAL: Change in pension funding could keep six-day mail delivery viable

    In his autobiography, Mark Twain said, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” There was a lot of truth in that humorous remark, which helps explain why the facts aren’t always what they appear to be.

    One example is the often-stated “fact” that the U.S. Postal Service is losing money and needs to reduce mail delivery from six to five days a week and eventually to three days a week.

  • Recording artist Kim Smith films debut video in county

    Hailing from a small town in Louisiana, singer-songwriter Kim Smith said she immediately felt at home when she arrived in Tell City to begin production on the music video for her new song, “Life of Plenty.”

    “I didn’t realize I was leaving my small hometown only to enter another that felt just as welcoming and serene,” said Smith. “The scen-ery was breathtaking and the residents showed such hospitality, I felt I left my Louisiana family only to join a new one in Indiana.”
