August 25, 2011

I recently picked up the schedule for 2011. We try to attend the headliner performance each year. It is always the same, not enough seating. I wonder why minimal bleachers are so close to the stage and why the performers are not given the respect of a more adequate location. We have fields and...

May 27, 2011

Across Indiana, the school year is drawing to a close.             Certainly it is a time for reflection, but I believe this year demands something more than simply rehashing fond memories of times with friends.             Through initiatives enacted by single-party rule in our state government, we are about to see a series of...
