  • When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior -- and a manual transmission.
    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.
    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.

  • On July 30, the annual reunion picnic of the RAKER family will be held at the American Legion Post 9 Shelter, 707 Jefferson Street, in Madison, Indiana. This place has great facilities, no steps, lots of shade and a playground for the children.
    Descendants of Ernst and Mary Buscher RAKER, and the related families of Strautmann, Titkemeyer, Uhlmansiek, Bulthaup, Obertate, Diekmann, Thiemann, and Detmer are invited to come join in.

    She has been described as a wonderful wife, mother, educator, friend, administrator and much more. The multiple hats Sharon James wears demonstrate how terrific of a person she truly is. Since 2009 she has been lighting up the halls of Milton Elementary School with her genuine love for the children and staff ensuring everyone feels safe, welcome and happy.

  • Characters—every family has them—our family was “blessed” with many. If you shook our family tree, more than a few nuts would fall out, and it was a heavy producer. With 40 uncles and aunts, (I’m not exaggerating…yet) there was never a shortage of unusual circumstances.

  • Every so often I’ll say to God, “With all due respect and with the full realization that you can fry me on the spot, which I admittedly deserve -- you have obviously lost your mind, Sir.”
    Here’s a perfect example: After many, many months of inviting a friend to my church, one day several years ago this friend finally decided to actually come.
    I should’ve been happy about that, but that particular week was right in the middle of a capital campaign, which meant the pastor would be talking about giving money.

  • July 3, 1986  (30 years ago)

  • We all want to get the most out of our retirement, but financially that cannot be possible if we don’t start planning for it early in our careers. While retirement may seem like an eternity away for you, it will come sooner than you think.
