  • Senate tackles travel, education measures; redistricting to courts

    Greetings from Frankfort! Anyone visiting the capitol this week would have enjoyed watching democracy in action, both on an individual level as well as a grander level. We passed legislation that made road travel safer for the Amish, we moved forward in education, and we found consensus on congressional redistricting even as legislative redistricting moved to the courts.

  • U.S.S. Hancock sailors proud of World War II battle scoreboard

    After striking Japanese home islands since July 10, 1945, and battering Tokyo Plains on the 17th and 18th of July, we were low on ammunition, fuel oil, gas and supplies. While underway and zigzagging at sea it took three days for the Third Fleet to receive over 6,000 tons of ammunition, about 400,000 barrels of fuel, 1,700 tons of provisions, 100 replacement aircraft and over 400 replacement officers and men. This was probably the largest transfer operation ever completed on the high seas.

    Former Trimble County Sheriff David Craig died Feb. 6 at the Waters of Clifty Falls in Madison. Craig, 87, had served two terms as sheriff in an era when county sheriffs could not by law be elected to consecutive terms in office.

    “He was known as a fair man and I think that’s probably one of the most important qualities you can have in a sheriff—a man who is fair across the board,” current Sheriff Tim Coons said Monday of Craig, “and what he said his word was his bond.”
