REYNOLDS: The quiet hours of the analog abyss

If you’re reading this, you know I emerged from the analog abyss alive. Picture me covered head to toe in dust, carrying a lantern in one hand and a rotary phone in the other. I am limping away from a cavern marked “1995.”. Tuesday afternoon saw much of Indiana and Kentucky plunged into the darkness of two decades ago, when few people carried cell phones and no one had heard of communicating by “text.”.

Making room in your heart for a rival

May the ghosts of Stan Musial and Jack Buck forgive me. I'm a Cardinals fan who also has a spot in his heart for Cubs fans. I know a lot of them. Most of my Cubs fans friends are my age. Some of them are much, much older, like my friend Mike Mammoser's father Don Mammoser, who's 87 years old and has never had the experience my children have had: watching a favorite team win a World Series.

Categorizing Halloween candy: A helpful guide

It's become a tradition for my kids to have friends over because our neighborhood is a prime spot for trick-or-treating on Halloween. There's very little traffic, a lot of houses in a relatively small area, and plenty of friendly folks answering the door. And by and large, we also have neighbors who do the holiday right.

In Memoriam: Interstate 164 (1990-2014)

The Indiana Department of Transportation reminded us of your impending death this week. Their road workers will give the eulogy: New Interstate 69 placards to replace all those big, green exit signs and all those little, blue mile-markers. You opened on Aug. 2, 1990. Truckers were thrilled with the prospect of avoiding U.S. 41 through the middle of Evansville, with its perpetual string of stoplights.

About

Ryan Reynolds

I'm in the senior citizens club for the "new media" generation. I'm old enough that I worked with newspapers that did actual paste-ups on graph sheets, and young enough that I was in on the ground floor with the digital age of journalism.

Today, I'm part of a news organization that is committed to covering its community in a way that no one else can: Breaking news around the clock, in-depth watchdog journalism, features on local people and commentary on local issues. The Courier & Press staff is made up of people who care about their city and strive to be *the* local news and information resource for its residents.

Why journalism? Because no two days are ever alike, it's fun to be "in the know" and now, more than ever, it's crucial to be a reliable, accurate means of telling people what's going on in the world around them.
