I’m about to turn 75. I’ve always wanted to be a grumpy old man. Over the years, I thought I had made a lot of headway in this area, especially in the getting older part, which is easy. I also found myself getting progressively grumpier, as well. Or so I thought.
GREENFIELD – City, town and nonprofit officials from throughout Hancock County recently completed a course designed to develop leadership and offer practical takeaways to improve the community.
On a recent visit with a former work colleague, newly retired, the discussion turned to cleaning stuff out, or rather, downsizing. She pointed out after another recent move to her new retirement city that she was not really attached to stuff. After several moves for employment, she had consistently downsized with each move as it always cost money to move it. Military families I have met over the years have also shared this truth.
Mt. Vernon High School’s football program was awarded a $1,000 equipment grant from this summer’s Colts Blood Donation Challenge. The high school was the site for a blood donation clinic and collected the most units in the Indianapolis area. Each player was able to choose from a Colts hat or football as an additional prize for the successful blood drive.

Some of us will remember the problems of trying to treat your pet with flea issues many years ago. It was powders and topical sprays that made a mess. Not to mention flea bathing and dips that smelled terrible and made even bigger messes, especially with big hairy dogs.
