Disturbing report on nursing homes
The Senate Special Committee on Aging has just released one of the most damning reports on the nation's nursing homes that I've seen in a long time. The short document should be required reading for any family thinking of moving a relative to a nursing facility.

Globalization brings benefits and challenges
There are trends and megatrends in foreign affairs, and globalization - a growing hyper-interconnectedness across borders - falls clearly into the latter category.

A dazzling county fair
The 139th Jennings County Fair is history. Well, not quite yet.

Rain rain, go away
May was the second-wettest month on record in the contiguous 48 states, according to the federal government.

Jennings County has been spared the flooding that has plagued many parts of the country, but the region has been extremely damp. June has not started much better here. Over 4 inches of rain has fallen since June 5 according to a Weather Underground station in North Vernon.

Happy summer, kids
It is hard to believe that school is out, especially for those who remember - and perhaps embellish more than a little - the "good old days" when they allegedly had to walk five miles through snow, rain and other elements to get to school every day.

Yes, another school year is over in Jennings County, the final student day for those in grades K-12 being last week on Wednesday.

Memorial Day meaning
Memorial Day is more than backyard barbecues, picnics, car races and baseball.

That does not mean summer's first holiday should not be enjoyed with those and other leisurely pursuits. It's just that we should not lose sight of why we celebrate the last Monday in May.

Buckeye Street bucks
The pain will be palpable, not literally but figuratively and mentally, this summer for motorists and their passengers used to traveling on a busy thoroughfare in North Vernon. That's because Buckeye Street will unexpectedly have to be closed for up to three months.

More 'fireworks' needed
There were no fireworks in last week's city primary elections and very little drama, fueled mostly by more-than-usual voter apathy.

Who, though, could really blame North Vernon's voters? There was only one - count 'em - contested race in both primary elections, this one on the Democratic Party side. The Republican Party had none.
