  • Iroquois handles North Oldham

    GOSHEN – North Oldham has set a pattern this year of playing ugly in the first half only to storm back in the second. That’s how last month the Mustangs beat North Hardin and South Warren and how they nearly beat Male.

  • Remember to do an annual audit on yourself

    I am most thankful for the set of values I received in the course of my life from so many sources. At the same time, I am examining the scaffolding of beliefs, values and assumptions that I inherited from my family, school, religion and society. One by one and on an annual basis, I seek to dismantle and discard those that are not in keeping with mature adult living and cherish those that are.
