Deb Hofelich shed tears when she laid a flower by the body of brown hound dog that didn't have a chance. Earlier that day, it had been hit by a vehicle and killed near her home in the Two-Mile Creek subdivision.
"He was a handsome animal," Hofelich said, "the poor little fella."
Across the street, a little girl playing in her yard was also disheartened.
"I saw that dog walking around our neighborhood a couple of days ago," said Olivia Sharp, 6. "It makes me sad that he is dead. What happened to him?"
The key to a long healthy life, says Claudia Helen Moore, is simple.
"I have no bad habits," says the North Vernon woman. "I know that's why I'm still going strong."
There likely are other reasons, too.
Moore stays active every single day by doing everything from penning poems and keeping her neat apartment clean to taking care of her boyfriend's cat and going to auctions. (1 comments) Monday, September 17, 2012
Until two years ago, the extent of Tom Taylor's background in radio was as a North Vernon teenager listening to rock-n-roll on Louisville AM station WAKY and, at night, on Chicago AM station WLS and Cousin Brucie on WABC-AM out of New York. He'd also listen to talk radio on WIBC-AM from Indianapolis.
Today, Taylor is the owner of WJCP-AM in North Vernon. His main claim to fame in that electronic medium, though, is his weekday morning talk show - at least among those who listen. (1 comments) Monday, September 10, 2012
