    Editor’s Note: This Easter column was first published in March 2005.

    For a young altar boy worn out by a two-hour service in a packed parish church, the woman’s words were as refreshing as the nighttime air flowing around his black cassock.

  • EDITORIAL: War shows we abandon values too easily

    A Lee Greenwood song, “Proud to be an American,” inspired a swell of patriotism 10 years ago. Because its 10th anniversary is being observed this month, some media outlets are looking back on this nation’s war in Iraq.

    They don’t inspire much pride.

    Retrospectives are useful for lessons-learned purposes. We’d like to highlight several lessons we hope the nation has learned.

  • LETTER: Celebrity dinner a festive success

    The Tell City High School Renaissance Leadership Class hosted its Celebrity Dinner and Silent Auction Feb. 23.

  • LETTER: Fischer looking for 1960s band stories

    I will be writing an account of the Tell City High School band trips to the New York World’s Fair in New York. They took place in 1964 and 1965. I would like to hear from band members who were in the classes of 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967.

    I have the tremendous opportunity to work with some of the greatest employees in the federal government and we have the pleasure to serve and work for the American farmer.
    On behalf of Indiana Farm Service Agency employees, we all are proud to be partners with the men and women who farm in the great state of Indiana. Agriculture is an honorable profession and we are privileged to do our part to help.

    We salute you – the American Farmer – on Ag Day, Tuesday.

    Big Brothers-Big Sisters is growing in our community. We’re reaching more children and community awareness is growing, but we need our community’s help in order to serve even more children and families in our county.

  • COLUMN: Three cheers for Francis

    By VINCE LUECKE

    Of all the images from last week’s papal conclave, the one likely to stay with me the longest is a seagull perched atop the chimney above the Sistine Chapel.

  • EDITORIAL: Hold president’s pay? Buschon makes valid point

    Budgets are important, especially now during a time when the American economy is slowly attempting to pick itself up. Families, business owners and individuals know how important it is to spend their money wisely. We would hope our elected government officials would share the same mentality, as it is a basic principle in handling money.
