... to having an existing pilot house at the Howard Steamboat Museum and now using the same name for the Franklin Square building to house an arts and historic center.
Both venues feature art and history, both downtown Jeffersonville and both will want to court the public. Surely a more clever name could have come from an old school and a cafeteria building — neither one of which brings a “Pilot House” to mind as a steamboat museum does.

... to some confusing business tactics.
On July 10, I received a call from Insight requesting an appointment to check the “strength of our reception.” The woman caller said the technician would need access into the house at our primary television set to use a meter to check this. I made the appointment for the next afternoon and when the female “representative” arrived in business clothes, driving a personal car, yet with proper identification, I was surprised.
The only thing she did was turn on the television then proceed with her sales pitch of a package deal. It was evident I had been misled and duped into a sales call. I then realized that it was she who had made the appointment and not a scheduler or dispatcher of Insight. This person, whom I shall not name here, used fraudulent means to gain access into our home and Insight is responsible for allowing such a person to invade the privacy of its customers. This should be stopped.
