As Forest Gump famously stated, I’m not a smart man. A short list of adjectives I could use, though, would include husband, father, retired soldier, businessman, duffer. A few more could be patriot or libertarian. Most assuredly American. Oh, and lately, embarrassed, saddened, disheartened, …

“Pay increases for Hoosier teachers could be on the horizon.” This was the headline accompanying coverage of the long-awaited recommendations of The Next Level Teacher Compensation Commission. That sounds fantastic if you stop reading there.

Just one week ago, my wife and I literally said goodbye to her brother, John Keegan, in the ICU of Terre Haute Regional Hospital. John was critically ill from COVID-19, on the ventilator, with IV blood pressure support and continuous dialysis, and thrombotic complications that threatened his…

The holiday season looks a little different this year, and stress levels may be at an all-time high for many of us. The new year is upon us, and it is a great time for fresh starts. If you are someone who uses tobacco, the best thing you can do for your health this year is to make a quit pla…

I was in a local store this week that had a person stationed at the front door to see that customers were wearing a mask. This was great, but inside there were individuals who had removed them. I wish I could feel free to remind them without fear of being part of a video on social media. As …

I don’t think I have ever been insulted as much as I was by the N-T Editorial of November 4th. Bless their hearts, they were offering an olive branch on the heels of their typical “Orange Man Bad” editorial where they once again said that Donald Trump’s words and tone hurt their feelings. Pu…

I moved back to Clark County several years ago after having lived elsewhere in Indiana for more than 30 years. While I was thrilled to see the downtown revitalization and attention to historic preservation in Jeffersonville, most everything else has been a massive disappointment in vision an…
