Polar Bash draws area chill-seekers
The extended weather forecast says it will be near 50 degrees at the Wabash River landing in Russellville Saturday.

That's fine with Zina Schultz, one of the organizers for the Polar Bash on the Wabash. This year's plunge will be the sixth annual event, which raises money for the Lawrence County Cancer Resource Center and Wig Shop. Brave plungers will make their way into the river promptly at 2 p.m.

Holiday wishes that Santa doesn't only visit the rich
A winter's day, in a deep and dark December - I tend to wake up early these days, as if someone had dropped an iron skillet in the kitchen and made a great noise while I was fast asleep, and it startled me. Now that I'm awake again and the noise is gone, I'm still bothered by it.
