  • 9/11 Commission chair scolds Congress for national security failures Retired Congressman Lee Hamilton has warned of the perils of political ideology, calling the body where he spent 34 years “noxiously partisan.” Now, he worries the divide is downright dangerous.

  • Paper towels trump electronics A few weeks ago I saw an article on the Internet about some of the really cool, but totally not necessary, things you can buy on SkyMall. The one item that stuck with me in an odd kind of way was a paper towel holder that was also a USB charging station.

  • What can we learn from California’s drought? Everyone knows (I’ve admitted it openly here.) that I spend my share of time on Facebook. But few know of my fascination with Twitter; tweets and hashtags can really get me going. For example, last week I heard a news story about how tweets were highlighting the California drought and its water police and snitchers.

  • Summer Stock Stage company brings it After seeing "Hair" on Summer Stock Stage, I knew I was in for a treat with "The King and I." The kids in the company had already proven they could handle transitioning between eras and relating to their characters. It was a fun show with all of the spectacle originally intended.

  • Watch for spider mites in ornamentals Spider mites are one of the more insidious pests we see in Central Indiana. The reason they cause so many problems is because they are small — virtually impossible to see while they are on plants. Quite often, homeowners don’t realize they are present until they see damage in their landscape.

  • Teach children to contribute as well as receive I receive a lot of emails and phone calls from parents facing difficulty in their parenting. Often parents ask, “What do I need to give my child? What do I need to do for my child?” While there are many moments we as parents need to give or do something, sometimes the answer lies in expecting from our children.

  • Momma wasn't a sissy My mom was on a medical downslide for the last 20 years of her life, and I always wondered how she managed to keep going. She always said she was probably already dead but just too stubborn to lie down.

  • They've been known to pick a song or two Someone I know — I don't even remember who — used to have a "You may be a Redneck if ..." daily calendar. One day it read: You may be a Redneck if your mother has a Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt.

  • Expiring term heightens urgency of lawmaker’s mission State Rep. Rebecca Kubacki had plans for her return to the General Assembly next January. The two-term Republican from Kosciusko County wanted to exert “full force” to roll back a law that prevents the children of undocumented immigrants from paying in-state tuition to attend state colleges and universities.

  • Exercise helps body resist injury I hurt myself last week. It’s a good one too. Low back, below the belt, all the way across. Hurt. When I get hurt, I am instantly grateful for the strength training and body care I do every week and the knowledge I’ve gain from moving my body regularly.
