Making the most of it
Terry Caffee and son Ryder of the Scipio area were making the most of the cold wintry days we've been having by taking their fun outdoors.

Couple finds opportunity in Jennings with opening of new store, Furniture & Things
A family legacy involving food was not the direction Eric Kimmel wanted to pursue when he decided to open his own business. Instead, Kimmel found that local residents wanted furniture that was reasonably priced and American made.
That discovery led him and his wife, Michelle, to the former Tenn Oaks Furniture store that was closing last year. The couple snapped up the location and opened their very own store, Furniture & Things.
"We were living in Anchorage, Alaska and we came home to see my wife's family, who reside in Madison," Eric explained. "When we heard about this spot we knew that North Vernon and Jennings County needed this type of business."
