  • Barada: If it sounds too good to be true ...

    Have you been paying any attention to any of the ads that dot the television landscape lately? It could just be me, but it seems like there are more and more products and services that are aimed toward the “Baby Boom” generation than ever before.

  • Multiple acts of kindness don’t go unnoticed

    Dear Editor:
    My son Josh goes to Milroy Elementary. He is my special boy who is autistic. He is also the Salvation Army’s bell ringer with a big heart.

  • Ziemke: All about the kids

    One of the most rewarding aspects of being a legislator is seeing the positive impact legislation has on Hoosiers. It is truly a collaborative effort, Republicans and Democrats, to make a real difference and craft sound legislation. Every bill is crafted to improve the lives of Hoosiers by way of education, the economy, core services and all the other areas under the umbrella of government.

  • Barada: Adding to the gun control debate

    As the debate over gun control rages on, it’s more than a little distressing to see how little some of our elected representatives know about firearms. This lack of understanding only reinforces a point I made several weeks ago about people on the other side of the gun control issue who are flocking to buy weapons they aren’t trained to use correctly or safely.

  • Messer: Helping put Hoosiers back to work

    Too many Americans are struggling to find good jobs. They’re juggling bills they can’t pay. They’re taking out second mortgages to send their kids to college  They’re foregoing vacations to pay high health care costs. They’re working harder but falling farther behind.

  • Mauzy: County food pantry defines essence of community spirit

    In a somewhat overlooked portion of Rush County, gatherings of capable hands work together for a greater cause of serving a community. While it is common to assume that the term “community” refers to an immediate township or closest vicinity, the efforts of an organization situated in the town of Carthage reach far beyond its boundaries to serve residents across the county, including 200 households in Rushville Township alone.

  • Remembering an old friend

    Dear Editor:
    The Mike Lacy I knew was a man who lived in the past. We only spent time with each other a few years, in high school and for a few years after. Mike and I shared a love of old movies, TV shows, music, and classic radio programs. Along with friends, we participated in parades in Rushville and other activities, dressing as the Marx Brothers with Mike portraying W.C. Fields (this was when Mike was heavier and before he became his svelte self).

  • Barada: Move to DST made good business sense

    Back on March 10, everyone (well, nearly everyone) in the United States moved their clocks ahead one hour. So, instead of it being 1 p.m. in the afternoon, the time moved ahead to 2 p.m. Next November we’ll all move our clocks back one hour. The easy way to recall how Daylight-Savings Time works is to remember the little saying, “Spring ahead, Fall back.”

  • Common Core concerns

    Dear Editor:
    As out of state investors and pro-privatize education interest groups pour into our state with their deep pockets to advocate through media advertisements in favor of Common Core State Standards, it would seem the practitioners commissioned to implement them should be consulted as well. As a teacher of 22 years in our public schools, concerns exist with the newest “fad” to sweep the nation.

  • Barada: Local grad rate continues to improve

    As regular readers of his column are aware, I frequently write about the importance of education as the key to whatever nearly everyone hopes for or aspires to in life.
