Their first opponent? The heat (08/12/10)
GREENCASTLE -- Across the state, high school fall athletes have spent the last week and a half battling through the dreaded first two weeks of practices. It's a lot of conditioning, a lot of mental preparation and a lot of learning. It's also a lot of dealing with the heat...
Putnam County Hospital gains 3 new practitioners (08/12/10)
GREENCASTLE -- Putnam County Hospital will have two new physicians beginning practice on Aug. 16. Elizabeth Brater, M.D. and Kristine Knapp, M.D. recently signed contracts with the hospital. Dr. Brater specializes in family medicine and will be joining the North Putnam Family Healthcare office in Bainbridge.

The Putnam County Advisory Planning Commission will meet at 5:30 p.m. tonight at Harris Hall at the Putnam County Fairgrounds. One item of discussion at the meeting will be the proposed gun club in western Putnam County. The meeting has been moved to Harris Hall to accommodate the expected crowd...
Greencastle considers night classes (08/12/10)
GREENCASTLE -- The Greencastle Community School Corporation Board is considering implementing a night school program to help reduce the number of students dropping out of high school and to increase the graduation rate. One day before classes started for the 2010-'11 school year, Greencastle High School Principal Randy Corn presented before the board the idea of accepting funds from the Western Indiana Knoy Learning Center grant to create the Internet-based program...
Community Portal aims to seek connections (08/12/10)
GREENCASTLE -- A one-stop shop for local residents on all things DePauw-related. That was the goal for a group of DePauw students who spent the better part of an academic semester exploring the connections between Greencastle and DePauw. "A major source of confusion seemed to be where to go for information about events and services that were available and open to the public on the DePauw campus, particularly for those with no direct connection to the University," Brendan Belz said, a 2010 DePauw graduate and one of the students who worked on the project.. ...
Museum Gala talleyed a success (08/12/10)
To the Editor: The Putnam County Museum held its ninth annual meeting and gala on Aug. 7, and it was the most successful ever. Over 100 members and supporters attended the event, taking advantage of the good cheer of those enjoying the silent auction and appetizer bar...
Parade of Fitness (08/12/10)
All is 'Wright' with Scott Pilgrim's world (08/12/10)
From the retro gaming Universal logo until the credits roll, Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is perhaps the most fun you'll have at the movies this year. The movie won't appeal to all people, but for those it was intended to target, it will be a hit. It's one of those movies you find yourself quoting and thinking about days after the viewing and a movie you'll find yourself wanting more of...
Morello, Riley still ragin' and rappin' (08/12/10)
Supergroups are generally anything but super. Sure, it sounds exciting to hear that Eddie Vedder and Eddie Van Halen are working together (I made that up, by the way.), but the results end up more like Eddie Money. So the news last year that guitar virtuoso Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) had united with rapper Boots Reilly (The Coup) wasn't really exciting to me...

Catherine Geraldine Frazier, 93, of Greencastle passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010. She was born on Sept. 10, 1916 in Bainbridge to Walter Gibbs and Ruth Lame Gibbs. She married Clyde Frazier on Sept. 18, 1934, and he preceded her in death on October 25, 1965...

Culture is abound in our little corner of the world (08/12/10)
As a person who loves the arts and wants them to always thrive, I have to say I am more than a little impressed with what Putnam County has to offer. Theater is my true passion, so I usually think of the Putnam County Playhouse first. The first production I saw there was "Singin' in the Rain" in 2008, and I was blown away by the professional quality of every aspect of the show -- the acting, singing, dancing, lighting, sound, costumes -- everything...
Hog wrestling event disturbing to couple (08/12/10)
To the Editor: The picture on the front page of the Aug. 2 Banner Graphic, "Squealing, mud-slinging fun," is disturbing. The hog-wrestling event may have been fun for the girls, but it surely was not fun for the pig. In fact, it is animal cruelty. 4-H is supposed to represent the best in the care of animals. This kind of activity sets a bad example in the care of other animals, especially to younger persons...
