  • “We All Scream for Ice Cream”

    Let me tell you something I enjoyed about the NCAA Basketball tournament besides the games, the commercials. I especially enjoyed the Capital One commercial featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee and Charles Barkley.
    In a 30-second commercial those three are sitting in a car together headed to the tournament site, San Antonio. Charles says he is excited to be able to visit the “A La Mode”. Jackson corrects him by saying, “Charles, it is Alamo.”

  • Grace Notes

    Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.
    It happened on that Sunday.
    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.
    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.
    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.
    But in Luke’s gospel, there’s a detour that I don’t often remember.

  • Candidate endorsements for the May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

    Starting with the Governor’s Office, and working on down to the General Assembly, it appears the Republican Party is making it easy for the Democrats to retake control of state government in the not-to-distant future.
    Governor Bevin has a terminal case of ‘hoof and mouth’, or is that ‘foot in mouth,’ disease.
    It seems he cannot help himself from alienating all state employees, particularly teachers.
