Sundial: For those who faithfully accompany us

October 18, 2013

By Dave Horn

Students of the bible are celebrating last month's discovery of the
long-lost 29th chapter of Acts, found deep within a hidden cave in
southern Palestine. The ancient scrolls are in good condition,
according to scholars, who translated them into English and put them
on the internet for all to see. Chapter 29 concerns a problem still
shared by many churches today.
It reads:
"And it came to pass, when Paul was at Corinth, he and certain
disciples came upon a mob that was about to stone an organist. And
Paul said unto them, 'What hath he done unto thee, that his head

THE CASUAL OBSERVER: Answering a Call to Service

July 9, 2013

BY LOIS TOMASZEWSKI

On Thursday, amid the fireworks, cook outs and assorted other holiday fun, this nation celebrated the anniversary of its founding. Several homes in Plymouth were draped with red, white and blue and I saw several US flags hanging outside.

Later, on my Facebook page, a friend of mine posted a gentle reminder that the freedoms we take for granted are not free. They come with a price, and it is a price many times paid for by the blood sacrifice of those called to serve their nation in the armed forces.

Not a stupid question

May 23, 2012

By Lydia Beers, Staff Writer

This week, my thoughts for this column were inspired by a comment I heard someone make: “This might be a stupid question, but…”
I am a firm believer in the saying that there are no stupid questions. If you don’t know something and you need to ask about it, that doesn’t make you stupid. I would argue that it actually makes you smart.

It's time for a belting

May 23, 2012

By Dee Grenert, Staff Writer

The ancient fax machine in the office rang, coughed, sputtered, groaned, whined, and finally churned out a most urgent news release, a duplicate of one received just days earlier.
This information sent from two local law enforcement agencies originated from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. It sent a stern warning and promised to show no mercy to a most insidious brand of scofflaw, punctuating the opening sentence with the word, “beware.”

Things to do in - and around - Culver

May 11, 2012

By Jeff Kenney, Culver Citizen editor and Pilot News Group staff writer

As alluded to in a previous column, Culver is headed full-bore into its “summer-ish” schedule, even if that time period really kicks off in late April, and that of course means warm weather. It goes without saying that Culver is a sort of outdoor paradise (or I hope it does), and while we could do a lot better about it, our family has always tried to take advantage of that — heck, it’s a big part of why we choose to live here!

Fashion Police, Part 1

Down the Indian Trails

May 3, 2012

By Jeff Kenney, Editor of the Culver Citizen

I remember an episode of the TV series “The Wonder Years” in which the youthful main characters learned that a small but beloved patch of woodland in their area would be bulldozed in favor of a parking lot. Rather than chaining themselves to the trees as they had contemplated, they spontaneously found themselves playing tag one last time, after dark, in the woods, the episode ending with the usual nostalgia-inducing, wistful music and commentary.

Dryer fire & cat in the ’mat

April 23, 2012

Our littlest house guest, Kitty, earned an award this week. Kitty, so called because no one in my house could agree on a name for the feline that wandered up to my back door about 6 months ago.
The rest takes a little longer to explain.
It all started a few months ago when my dryer started making a horrible squeak. Then, it stopped. Then, it started. We figured out that if we only dried about half a load at a time, the drum wouldn’t yell at us as often or as loudly. So that’s how we’ve gotten by for the past couple months.

No more excuses

February 13, 2012

Maggie Nixon is Managing Editor of the Pilot News Group:
Second verse, same as the first...
This week, much like last week, flashed by and before I knew it, it was time to sit down and write about my goals I accomplished for a healthier me this week.
Well, I hit none of them to be honest. How embarrassing is it to admit that? My weight has maintained, because while I haven’t made many changes, that includes both for better or worse. So I guess I could say it’s been a successful week a way that I haven’t gained.

The challenge begins...

January 30, 2012

This week, Staff Writer Lydia Beers and I share with you the first week of our fitness challenge. This column will be published Saturdays throughout the Best Loser weight-loss competition, in which we are both participants. — Maggie Nixon, Editor

What’s bothering me about my “diet”?
