  • Australian commercial for bourbon shot in LJ

     LEBANON JUNCTION -- It was a typical Wednesday in Lebanon Junction, aside for the people rolling down the street on barrels.

    Both coaches know exactly what the other will try to do. That doesn’t mean it won’t work or that a few wrinkles won’t catch the other off guard.

    Even fans know what to expect in Friday’s game.

  • Death of newspapers could be bad rumor

     I know of newspapers that kept their communities informed about clean water and shelter during terrible storms and disasters.

    I know of newspapers that exposed crooks, lost a lot of advertising from the crooks’ buddies and still put out a paper every week.

    I know of a newspaper that had an ironic sense of humor that even offended a few readers and stood its ground with a “come on people, have a brain” retort.

    I know of publishers who took pay cuts during the recession rather than cut staff.
