  • Alternate state mottos

    By CRYSTAL CAUDILLO

    My family traveled to Arizona to see family. During the drive, it occurred to me that I couldn’t remember Arizona’s state motto. Despite bullying my memory to give up the goods, the answer stubbornly remained in hiding. In true Grinch fashion, I decided, “If I can’t remember the motto I’ll make one instead.” After making this decision the rest came easy. None of these are intended to mock Arizona or Arizonans.

    During the snowy and icy months, a person’s risk of falling increases. Typical injuries include broken ankle, hip, arms and shoulders as well as head and back injuries. LIM College recommends the following safety steps to help you be careful in the winter:

    Wear footwear that provides traction, such as flat and waffled rubber soles versus heals or leather.

    Step down, not out from curbs so that your foot does not slide.

  • Looking Back | Jan. 4, 2018

    Jan. 7, 1988 (30 years ago)

    Cold weather sent skiers heading for General Butler State Park as the five trails were rated in “excellent condition.” Ski Butler, operated by Paoli Peaks in Indiana, received a $750,000 loan from the state and a renegotiated lease after a mild season in 1986-87 caused the facility to nearly fold.
