Still our choice

January 11, 2011

By Jerry Bingle, general manager

Religion vs. science.
Debate over how our planet and universe came to exist has gone on for, well, who really knows how long, because there isn’t even a consensus between the two on how old the universe really is.
But could the question of whether a supreme being (God) or some scientific event (like a Big Bang) gave rise to our existence really have been so easily settled this week?

Being always ready for visitors

January 11, 2011

By Dave Hogsett, a retired United Methodist Church minister now residing in Plymouth.

Late Christmas my oldest son, his wife, and six children arrived at our home to celebrate Christmas. Four adults, one youth, three children, and an energetic, chocolate lab joined them the following afternoon. Eighteen of us enjoyed a wonderful Christmas feast as we celebrated the birth of Jesus.
In preparation for our visitors, Diane and I needed to get the following done:
1. All of my neatly stacked piles of paper on the dining room table waiting to be processed needed to be moved.

Lake Avenue is ours alone

January 11, 2011

To most of we old timers, Lake Avenue is the most memorable street in Plymouth.

The neighborhood grocery store

October 1, 2010

My View from the Pilot house By Mike Boys Pilot News Consultant
Published July 16, 2009
At one time, during the mid 1930s to the mid 1950s, neighborhood grocery stores were plentiful and were within walking distance as they were designed to blend in with the neighborhood and specialized in serving their needs. Some of them were homes that maybe had one or two rooms devoted to the grocery business. It was the “convenience store” of its time.

Let the mudslinging begin

September 14, 2010

Baron Hill walks to save his career

August 27, 2010

By Brian Howey
BLOOMINGTON — It was his seventh and final mile, heading down South Walnut Street when a motorcyclist preparing to saddle up in a parking lot saw U.S. Rep. Baron Hill walk by.
“Thanks for all you do,” Jason Evans-Groth called out from inside his helmet.
Hill smiled, walked over and shook the man’s hand. The congressman is in a tough reelection battle in a hellish year for Democrats. The congressman had preached to his base all day that the pundits were spewing far too much gloom and doom.

A favorite recipe for ‘Indiana salsa’

August 27, 2010

Some time ago Janet Born sent me this recipe. Now is a good time to pass it on because the ingredients are now ripening in the gardens.
The recipe reminds me of a similar concoction my mother used to make from our garden in the fall when I was a small child, and it sounds as if it would lend interesting taste to winter’s beans and potatoes. Also it would make good usage of surplus remaining in the garden.
