My checkered past

Posted on May 02, 2018 in From the Editor

By Emily Schilling In less than 30 days, 33 drivers in 33 cars will be attempting 200 laps on a 2.5 mile track in the hopes of winning the 102nd Indianapolis 500.  Those familiar with this uniquely Hoosier tradition know that the Indy 500 is so much more than a one-day sporting event.

Real superheroes

By Emily Schilling I never tire of playing dress up. And donning duds to help me empathize with electric industry superheroes? Now that was fun! I imagined myself to be a real-life Wonder Woman after slipping on my hero gear: a lineworker’s hard hat, safety glasses and rubber gloves. But, proving clothes don’t make the… Continue reading.

By Emily Schilling A couple of months ago, I shared that I enjoy curling up with a good book when the weather outside is frightful.

By Emily Schilling It’s amazing what you can accumulate when you’ve spent a career in one building for one employer.

A real page-turner

Posted on Jan 02, 2018 in From the Editor

By Emily Schilling This bookworm wants to hibernate with a good read. Though we’re focusing on winter activities in this issue, I must admit: if I had my druthers, I’d hibernate for the next three months, only to emerge when I’d be assured springtime weather had really returned.

Spirit of the season

It’s the beginning of December. Have you decked your halls yet?  My husband and I begin decorating for the holiday the day after Thanksgiving. I admit, I go a bit crazy with the decorations. Each November, I put up trees throughout the house — including the bathroom! Last year, I decided to cut back a… Continue reading.

A basket full of love & care

On this month’s Reader Submissions page, we salute… Continue reading.

They’re simply the best

Posted on Sep 02, 2017 in From the Editor

By Emily Schilling There’s an old quote: “Good, better, best. Never let it rest, until your good is better and your better is best.” Most of us aspire to be the best we can be. We like being the best, experiencing the best and applauding the best. This month’s issue showcases Indiana’s best as voted… Continue reading.

Let the chips fall where they may

Posted on Aug 02, 2017 in From the Editor

By Emily Schilling For me, it’s all about the deep fried (of course!) spiral potato chips. I’m embarrassed to say it’s one of main reasons I look forward to the State Fair each year. The chip vendor booth is the first stop I make after parking the car! If I had my druthers, I’d declare… Continue reading.

I simply remember these things

Posted on Jun 03, 2017 in From the Editor

By Emily Schilling I’m a perennial list maker and most of what I commit to paper are my “to dos,” also known as “the list that never ends.” I may check stuff off, but, alas, the list continues to grow with new tasks that must be completed, usually ASAP. Therefore, any sense of accomplishment is… Continue reading.
