Ward: Furnishing Rushville
I have fond memories of Rushville when it had three lumber/coal yards and four railroads went through town. The city owned the electric utility and the phone company was user-owned and operated.
Wolfsie: Long day’s journey
I have never aerated my lawn. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written the word “aerated” before. If I did I am sure I misspelled it. I think I accidentally went from liquefy to aerate while making a strawberry shake in our blender. That’s the extent of my experience. I guess I aerate my tire when it is flat, but I don’t think that word works with a 7-year-old car. If you own a 2013 Lexus, you aerate. Otherwise, you just put air in your tire.

Multiple acts of kindness don’t go unnoticed
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.
