Whitcomb monument...



Local woman hopes to...



They lay their cards on...



Local hospital marks...



A self-taught sculptor hand chiseling a monument for a self-made man.Somehow, it seems only fitting that Tell City resident and artist Greg Harris is the one fashioning the eight-and-a-half ton limestone monument which will stand in testament to Hayden son Edgar Whitcomb's storied career and adventurous life.Like Whitcomb, Harris embarked on his own journey to self fulfillment, following his dream to become a sculptor and artist."I am mostly self-taught," he says. "To me, it means I have a strong desire to learn."

Editor's Notebook
Honor Flight for veteran

For 71 veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and their 71 guardians, it was a long day.
George Franklin Yeager of Butlerville, a veteran of all three of those wars, was one of them. One day after his 87th birthday, he went on an Honor Flight from Cincinnati to Wash­ington, D.C., where he and the others toured five military memorials and other sites.
