  • Westside principal has special connection to Final Four coach

    When Jon Hoskins was growing up in Zionsville, Ind., he played all of the games in the back yard and driveway with the other boys in the neighborhood. Baseball, soccer, football and of course, living in Indiana, they played basketball.  
    Jon and his brother Bill and Bill’s best friend Brad Stevens, who lived nine houses away on South Maxwell, would always be involved in whatever game there was to be played on a particular day.

  • From the ashes

    I know Ash Wednesday has come and gone, and we’re smack in the middle of Lent, but Ash Wednesday is on my mind.
    This year I went to two Ash Wednesday services, one in the morning and one at night.
    My husband had asked, “Are you that bad?”
    Well, last year I had vowed to give up recreational shopping for the 40 days leading up to Easter and I did well until I resisted not the temptation to buy something that I can’t even remember and probably isn’t even in my closet anymore.
