ONE OF THE WONDERFUL THINGS about living in a small community like Switzerland County is that you get the chance to meet and get to know many different characters.
IT WAS 60 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK, and for many of us that qualifies it as a distant memory.
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.

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.
