  • Should I claim Social Security now or wait until I’m 70?
    2/27/2021 Dear Rusty: I'm currently 67 years old and still working full time. I took a big financial hit in 2008, which is why I'm still working, and I expect to continue working until I'm 70. My question is: should I take Social Security now, bank it until I’m 70, and then pay it out to myself upon retirement? Or would it be better to hold off until I’m 70 to claim. Longevity of about 85 seems to run in my family. Signed: Working Senior

  • Lawman Mitch Russell loved life, served his community well
    2/27/2021 Some folks believe that the security at Riverview Health went up a notch when retired Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department Detective Lt. Mitch Russell came to take over as director of security in 2012.
    Russell, who spent 29 years with the Sheriff’s Department, after retiring in 2006, became Arcadia Marshall in the northern Hamilton County town where he graduated Hamilton Heights High School and started out in law enforcement as a deputy marshal. He loved law enforcement and ran as a candidate for Hamilton County Sheriff in the May 2018 primary.

  • Clashes at Statehouse blow up
    2/27/2021 For the past four decades, I've covered the Indiana General Assembly as a reporter and monitored it as a columnist and publisher. What occurred on the House floor and out in the Statehouse hallways last week has been described as a "racial" clash. And I will tell you upfront that while there has been racial tension throughout Indiana's two centuries of statehood, this is the first time in my memory that it bubbled up so publicly at the Statehouse.

  • Spring cleaning for the soul . . . and mind
    2/26/2021 Growing up in Indiana, I couldn’t wait for winter to end and warm weather to return . . . except for one thing – spring cleaning! My mother would turn the house upside down in her quest to get rid of every speck of dirt, dust and anything that wouldn’t pass a white glove inspection. For a young boy who would rather play in mud than wash his hands it wasn’t a fun time.

  • Numbers, especially in recruiting, don’t tell whole story
    2/26/2021 Many years ago, Purdue football coach Jim Colletto ranted about the lunacy of recruiting rankings and how these experts frequently were wrong. 
    The trigger for Colletto’s remarks was the underrating and, in at least one instance, disparaging remarks about the prize recruit of the Boilermaker class. That recruit was Parade All-American Mike Alstott, who four years later would leave Purdue as the school’s career rushing leader.

  • Snow day meant pay day for Wolfsie
    2/26/2021 Last week when the snowstorm hit, I was fortunate to have neighbors who knew that I had a bad knee, a bad back and a cardiologist on retainer. Paul and Eric shoveled our driveway and Noah (Eric’s 10-year-old son) somehow managed to maneuver the snowblower.
    As they finished up about 4:30 in the afternoon, I threw on a coat and went outside to thank them. “Wow,” said Paul, “you are still in your pajama bottoms. You haven’t gotten dressed yet?”

  • Dillinger can't leave Mexico without COVID-19 test
    2/25/2021 If you want to know what’s happening with just about anybody in town or your elected officials, you follow Facebook.
    For instance, take Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Dillinger, our longest standing commissioner currently serving in Indiana. He was first elected in 1980.

  • Chicken Little’s warning, or sign of things to come?
    2/25/2021 We all know the story of Chicken Little, the loud fowl who ran around warning the sky was falling, the sky was falling. Of course the sky wasn’t, but CL’s reputation took a real hit over the false prediction.
    Maybe I’m a bit like Chicken Little. Don’t think so, but let’s just put it out there that it’s a possibility.
