FREY: Making an everyday appliance a deadly device
It is a common kitchen appliance used every day across the world. My Aunt Dot used one quite often, mainly to prepare sauerbraten, a German pot roast dish.
WILLIAMS: There is no end to time
One reason I was so exultant when I retired is that retirement represents a definite completion ... and when you think about it, how many things in life do you finish for good? Not many because our existences mostly consist of a series of repetitions.
MORTON: Good news is good
I like to complain as much as anybody else. In truth, I may do more than my share of finding fault and wagging a finger in warning. Nonetheless, I’m tired of commentators (including many economists) who find nothing good and only the darkest clouds for the past few months.
BOWYER: Hearing aids prove to be not much help
I know my hearing isn’t what it used to be, but it’s a long way from being completely shot. I can still carry on a phone conversation with a business associate, or a conversation with a friend without using an ear trumpet or a $5,000 hearing aid, although it gets kind of tough in a noisy restaurant.
KNISELY: Feeling a little boxed in

As any child can tell you, the Mesozoic Era ends with the extinction of the dinosaurs. Most geologists think the cause of that extinction was the impact of an enormous meteorite that hit the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
KNISELY: Moving day has finally arrived
As you’re reading these words, I will officially be a Cass County resident. I’ve arrived! (Hide the good silverware.)
After four long months of commuting to Logansport from Kokomo — the city’s southside no less! — I will finally be in the back yard of the paper’s coverage area.
ABBOTT: Trading one backyard eyesore for another
Why do I have a 250-pound concrete dinosaur in my yard?
The honest answer is because I can.
BOWYER: Save sympathy for bombing victims
There were some interesting articles in Monday’s paper, and the one that really caught my eye was under the title “For Obama, a testing and emotional week.”
BOWYER: The memories are all that remain
Once upon a time, a school building was erected in the town of Onward. It was, at the time, a magnificent building with huge pillars at the front doors, and inside the children sat at their desks studying and dreaming of recess.
