  • Frog serenade a sure sign of spring

    We’ve all heard the saying “when one door closes, another one opens.” Well, I’m slamming the door on winter and opening it for spring. Hallelujah! Though hiking up and down my driveway in 2 feet of snow gets me into great shape for gardening, let’s be realistic — muck boots and Carhartts are hardly business casual attire.

  • It’s a good time to be a criminal

    By Ben Carlson

    Column as I see ’em …

    It would be easy to slam the state’s Board of Corrections for allowing Lawrenceburg resident Kris Mitchell to serve just two years of a 10-year sentence for a rash of burglaries, some of them involving guns, for crying out loud.

    Instead, I’ll slam the state legislature that a couple of years ago created God-awful HB 463, which basically allows crooks and schnooks a get-out-jail early card, provided their crimes are non-violent.
