Being a part of the local newspaper means that I get to wear a lot of hats. Yes, I write stories and take pictures; but I'm also in the rotation to take the trash out; have been known to work on the bathroom toilet a time or two; I've shoveled the sidewalk; and delivered a copy of the paper to a subscriber who didn't get their issue on a particular day.

IT RAINS, IT SNOWS, IT RAINS AGAIN. When the rain stops, it gets cold and the moisture freezes and turns to ice. It’s becoming a winter weather pattern here in Switzerland County — and quite frankly I’m sick of it. Thursday, January 20, 2005
A NEW DAY DAWNED IN INDIANA this week, as new Governor Mitch Daniels and a Republican-controlled statehouse began work in the spirit of cooperation and progress.
It didn’t take long for our new governor to take a hotly-contested issue on with full force.
Governor Daniels has endorsed a proposal for the entire state of Indiana to adopt Daylight Savings Time — although parts of the state set in two time zones. Under the plan, most of Indiana would “spring ahead” and “fall back” with the eastern part of the U.S.; while the western corners of the state which include Gary and Evansville and other communities would stay in line with Chicago.
