  • John Forsee, an early editor of the News-Herald and native Owen countian, wrote a history of the county in 1936 under the Federal Writers’ Project.

Its purpose was not only to help these white collar workers but to focus on the historic and cultural resources of the United States.

  • First, I must correct an error I made last week. It was Mike Raisor’s birthday on my anniversary, not Mike Perry. Mike Perry is my daughter’s contemporary. Sorry to both Mikes.

  • About two years ago, we became caretakers of two cats when our youngest daughter moved back home to rebuild her life.
    Last year, she moved in with a friend who has two dogs — and an allergy to cats. So, we agreed to take care of Target and Mohawk until our daughter lives in a more cat-friendly space.
    They’re old cats, probably 13- or 14-years old, which is between 63 and 66 in human years.
    They take a lot of naps.
    They also sometimes barf on the carpet (but rarely on the tile), and they sometimes sneeze on the windows and the furniture.

    Failure to respond appropriately could endanger health and environment
    A spill is an accidental release of any amount of pesticide, small or large. Spills on public highways, such as when a tank on a truck overturns, usually have major consequences. Failure to respond quickly and appropriately to such mishaps could seriously endanger public health and environmental quality. Always put on the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) before responding to a spill.
