Again with the spring/winter weather?

January 18, 2012

Again this week, we saw temperatures topping the high 40s, and down to the teens. What's your take on the current weather conditions?

This week's question: What's your take on our weather?

December 13, 2011

By Maggie Nixon
Managing Editor

What's with this weather? Freezing cold Saturday and then back to mild on Sunday. Today, we're lower 40s but will be wet and up to 50 by Wednesday and Thursday. Too many people are begging for snow, but I'm betting it'll be here by Christmas morning. Just in time for Santa's sleigh...

I know, I know, "Welcome to Indiana weather. You new in town?" is usually the response I get when I bring up the topic of "What's with this weather?"

Do you have a clue to help me out?

Born and raised - Indiana - and still clueless.

Christmas traditions

December 6, 2011

This week's topic for discussion is Christmas tradition. What do you look forward to with your family? What are MUST HAVE holiday treats at your house? How to spread your holiday cheer? Post responses here and check back often to see what others have to say!

At my house, my boys LOVE monkey bread. What's that? Well, basically, a really yummy morning treat that they've come to love over the last few years. You can find it in your local breakfast/frozen aisle. It's a bread cake with glazed topping — basically a cinnamon roll on steroids.

The significance of failure

January 11, 2011

By Dave Hogsett

New Year’s Eve I caught a part of the Oprah Winfrey interview with J.K. Rowling, creator of Harry Potter.  When I tuned in, Rowling was talking about the significance of failure in her own experience and her interpretation of it.

Anniversary celebration

January 11, 2011

By Rachael Phillips

Thirty-six years ago, we walked hand-in-hand around Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis, just as we are right now this beautiful, frosty January morning.
Same location. Same people. Well, not exactly the same.
Both we and Indianapolis have changed since our wedding day. First, we have expanded. Great for the city. Not so great for us — although decades ago, this skinny unemployed secretary and pencil-shaped first-year medical student could have used a few dozen pounds. The years have been generous; we have accumulated that many and more.

My first Christmas tree

January 11, 2011

By Fremont Books

When I was five years old, I went with my father when he selected and cut a small fir tree — one of several competing for existence in a hilly corner of the pasture between our home and the graveled road that ran past it.
When we took it home he made a cross of two wide boards and spiked them to the bottom of the tree so it could upright. Then he placed gift-wrapped Christmas presents on the crossed flat boards to insure greater stability. This was important because in those days country, and many town homes, did not have electricity.

Schools are a big focus this session

January 11, 2011

By State Rep. Nancy Dembowski

There will be a lot of talk about schools in the 2011 session of the Indiana General Assembly.
Some of it will revolve around the next state budget and whether the governor and the new majorities in the Indiana House and Senate will be able to avoid cutting state support for public schools in our state.

12 new green habits

January 11, 2011

By Marianne Peters, a freelance writer based in Plymouth, and also a certified Master Gardener. You can send questions or comments to her through the Pilot News or her Web log: http://hoosierwordsmith.typepad.com.

Sometimes life is like a novel — you think you’re just turning a page, and then you find yourself in a whole new chapter. That’s what happened when my family and I decided to start recycling. I didn’t realize then how much that decision would affect other areas of our lives as we found more ways to “live green.”
