    Ask Amy: Brother's laziness should have consequences
    Dear Amy: My younger brother has become very unhelpful around the house. Our parents got divorced about two years ago, and although it was rough at first I think my brother and I are doing OK. He is a freshman in high school and I am a junior. My father...

    Hinsdale native shows Civil War in art work

    So I hear about this guy named Mike Michalowicz, who has this idea that companies should institute "library hours," a chunk of time each day when everyone in the office shuts up, unplugs from the Internet and focuses on work. My first reaction was,...
  • Paychecks compensate our labor, praise compensates our passion

    When Lisette Guillen attended the FBI's latest multi-cultural advisory board meeting, she never expected to hear her name called out loud. W. Jay Abbott, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Indianapolis office, recently presented her with the 2014...

    A public library can be ground zero for needed information, education, Internet access and, of course, thousands of books. However, I'm told by many regular patrons that libraries also serve as unofficial warming shelters for our area's homeless and...
