It has been a while since I've shared my thoughts in this blog on the newspaper's website. A different job title has taken me out of the newsroom full-time the past couple of years, and I now split my time between the Greene County Daily World, Greencastle Banner Graphic, and The Brazil Times.
A new title and job description means I've gotten to know a lot of new people and places.
The travel isn't the most enjoyable part of the job, but it does give me time to think a lot. I love listening to WLW out of Cincinnati, and I've grown to enjoy listening to some Christian radio shows.
My goal is to share some random thoughts in this blog from time to time. If you'd like to promote an upcoming event or like to share something with the public, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll use it if I can.
So here goes ...
Gas is so much cheaper in Greene County than it is in Clay, Putnam, and Owen counties. In some places, it's 30 cents cheaper.
The folks in Greencastle like to joke that Greene County is closer to the Gulf of Mexico and the oil wells.
My prediction the prices would go up after the election hasn't come true yet, and I hope I'm wrong.
Be sure to check out the GCDW's website to find out who wins the annual Harvey Hannah Award.
It will be announced tonight (Thursday, Nov. 13) at the Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet at WestGate @ Crane.
If you haven't been to WestGate you should go by and take a look. It's very impressive.
I've had numerous people ask me who's going to win the regional football game Friday night between Linton-Stockton and North Vermillion.
If I knew that I could make some money.
I believe it will come down to the defense that can stop the run better.
It should be a great game. Both offenses score a lot, so it should be fun to watch.
Of course it wouldn't hurt my feelings to see the Miners advance to their fourth straight semistate game.
I've noticed the old Lodge property next to The Grill in Linton has been cleaned up and a fence placed near the sidewalk.
I've heard rumors about what might be happening there, but can't get anything concrete.
Looking forward to Terry Gilmore opening up his new restaurant in Bloomfield. I've noticed on Facebook he's been doing a lot of work on his building.
Terry's son, by the way, is an outstanding golfer. He's young, and has a heck of a future in the sport.
I've watched him hit many times at Phil Harris Golf Course, and I know I wouldn't want to play against him.
