Today's Opinions

  • Trump’s political value often overlooked

    This letter is my response to a letter to the editor, published in your Monday April 25 paper written by Betty Voornies, President Indiana AFL-CIO Labor Unions, titled, “Why Trump is bad for workers in America.”

    Yes, Trump, as well as I and millions of American citizens are very much concerned that our American companies are exiting the USA to carry our American jobs with them. Your article states that two Indiana companies, Carrier Air Conditioner and United Technologies are carrying 2100 jobs to Mexico, as well as hope for these soon to be jobless Americans.

  • Child abuse prevention an endless effort

    Child abuse, because of its broad societal impacts, should be at the forefront of our awareness all year.

    Child abuse and neglect, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls “significant public health problems” in the United States, are being called to the spotlight during April, Child Abuse Awareness Month.

    For nearly a century, Indiana has been known as the “Mother of Vice Presidents.” From 1868 to 1916, 10 vice presidential nominees hailed from Indiana.

    Tomato 101 is for beginners and advanced gardeners alike. There are many assumptions about the tomato that get passed on by the most well-meaning aficionado.  I take my tomatoes seriously and have developed a routine to hedge my bets for a healthy summer harvest.

  • Supporting Hoosier farmers

    State Representative

     

    This session, the Indiana General Assembly aimed to further strengthen our agriculture industry and provide relief to farmers across the state. The farming sector plays a vital role in our economy and I am pleased that we were able to continue to support family farms in Indiana.

    The period for finding morel mushrooms is far too short.

    Usually in this area, morels can be found in late April and early May, so that is when the eating is good. And while they can be saved for later eating, they are best when eaten when they are freshly picked and cooked.

    A couple seasons past, my brother-in-law Paul Cooper stopped by and announced he brought a surprise. It was a good one. Morel mushrooms.

    As  I wrote a few years ago, my friends accused me of borderline paganism when I spent a Saturday night drinking around a bonfire for Walpurgis Night, or Walpurgisnacht in German. It was a fun night back in 2011. I drank plenty of beer and cheered the arrival of May 1. I then crawled into a tent and slept until noon the next day.

  • Despite potential flaws, red-light camera might be needed at city intersection

    That the use of red-light cameras can be abused has been well documented, especially in Chicago, which has more such cameras than any other city in the country.

    For that reason we have editorialized against the use of such cameras in the past. But if drivers don’t stop running red lights at one of Tell City’s busiest intersections, we will have to recommend that the city look into installing a camera there.
