You have to do better C'Ville
I am a proud resident of downtown Crawfordsville. Today, I am a disappointed resident of downtown Crawfordsville.
On Monday I received and edited a press release from the City of Crawfordsville regarding snow cleanup on: Main Street, from Water Street to Walnut Street; Washington Street, from Market Street to Wabash Avenue; and Green Street, from Market Street to Main Street.
It was a day late and a dollar too much. According to the release, the city was paying a private contractor to help remove snow off of sidewalks downtown.
Dr. Baird - Some Little Giant
Dr. M. Keith Baird passed away on Saturday. The list of Dr. Baird's involvements and accomplishments is impressive and lengthy. But to me, he was a neighbor - and the best kind of neighbor you could ask for.
For my final two years at Wabash College I lived at 13 Harry Freedman Place. Dr. Baird lived right next door. He always had a smile, a laugh and a story to tell.
The first time I met Dr. Baird in person was actually in the classroom in 2009. Yes, this man, who had earned a degree in 1956, frequently sat in on classes 50 years later just to keep learning. He would show up to several classes I was in, and we would occasionally chat. And then one day we realized we were heading to pretty much the same place on campus. And realized we were neighbors.
This time of year is all about helping neighbors
This week is time to give thanks. And it's an opportunity to give back to those that go without. Whether it's at a church or some other organization, there will be opportunities all week long to lend a hand and make sure that others have a special holiday season.
What happened to the U.S. of A., brother?
There I sat. Getting my fix of professional wrestling from the 1980s and '90s and I couldn't help but wonder . . . what happened, brother?
Yes, the "immortal" Hulk Hogan was on screen. After checking the color on my TV I realized that he really was that orange and that his arms were that pumped up.
Veterans Day is time to thank vets for their service
Veterans Day is one of the lasting icons of our national pride. As a nation we take a day to put aside our differences and remember the men and women that fought so that we can have those differences. It is a great day.
I have the honor of knowing a handful of active duty Marines. Some I graduated college with, some I've developed friendships with and some I've only talked to from a distance through others. I try to thank these individuals throughout the year for their service. But on Monday we stop as a nation to take our time to thank them.
