Angry constituents vehemently voiced their disappointment a couple of weeks ago to the two members of the Indiana House of Representatives who represent Jennings County. The occasion was a public forum in North Vernon. It was one of the largest crowds to attend any of the regular sessions of the Jennings County Chamber of Commerce's annual Third House series.
Just when many in the Jennings County area thought we were going to escape the brunt of Old Man Winter this year - wham! - Mother Nature is dealing us a viciously cold and snowy blow this week.

The municipal election cycle has officially begun in North Vernon and voters in the city should pay close attention. They will have plenty of choices to make at the polls, first in May and then in November. Wednesday, February 11, 2015

The National Rifle Association and everyone else cannot deny the fact: gun deaths are increasing in America.
One of the recurring arguments by the NRA and its often-rabid supporters against any and all proposals for modest gun safety legislation is that if guns kill people, then automobiles do, too. Ergo, this nonsensical comparison is heard over and over: "If we outlaw guns, we should outlaw cars as well. More people die from car wrecks than from guns." (4 comments) Wednesday, January 21, 2015
