Brothers in Arms (11/12/10)
Greencastle VFW Post No. 1550 and American Legion Post No. 58 members presented the colors and a rifle salute at Thursday's Veterans Day ceremony on the south steps of the Putnam County Courthouse. Veterans taking part in the ceremony included, from left, Buck Martin, Bill Strahl, Eddie Jones, Dick Keller, Roy Giesen, Brian Hopkins, Dan Baldwin and Bernie Wahl. The ceremony commenced at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, just like the World War I Armistice in 1918. Chaplain Jim Staggers spoke briefly about why we mark this day, but should perhaps not consider it a celebration or holiday. "We don't mark this as a day of celebration, as proud as we are of that victory. We mark this day as a day of remembrance of those who made it possible." Banner Graphic/JARED JERNAGAN

JSBX re-releases an aural assault (11/12/10)
Start with a healthy dose of blues rock. Throw in a dose of 1990s alternative. Now add in some punk attitude, a dash of "Paul's Boutique" era Beastie Boys and a bit of Rolling Stones-esque swagger. Mix well and bake for two hours. And what do you have? It should sound something like the music the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion was producing in the mid to late 1990s...
Roth stars in surprising gem 'Lie to Me' (11/12/10)
By CAINE GARDNER Film Critic "Lie to Me" could perhaps be the most underrated show on television and to be honest, I only discovered it when I received the second season to review. To say I was surprised would be an understatement. Oscar nominee Tim Roth stars at Dr. Cal Lightman, an expert with facial microexpressions and involuntary body language. In short, he's like Santa Claus. He knows when you've been bad or good, and just like good ol' Saint Nick, you'd better be good for goodness sake...
