WHAT ARE WE DOING by Jim Redwine

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Gavel Gamut By Jim Redwine(Week of 25 July 2016)WHAT ARE WE DOING?You probably think this article is about the current presidential election. You would be incorrect. The title is literal. That is, what does the Posey Circuit Court do and who does it? Many of my friends ask me these questions. Actually, I do not have that many friends but the few I have often ask, “Do judges work?” One of my brothers, the one who practices law, answers this question thusly, “No!” But he was always prone to being overly dramatic. And his opinion is usually expressed right after he has lost a case. I do not feel any urge to disabuse him of his prejudice.Instead I would like to share with you, Gentle Reader, an exposition of what really goes on in the Posey Circuit Court. Let’s start with one of the Court’s four court reporters, Liz Miller.Elizabeth Ann (Dayton) Miller has been with the Court since January 2015. She is our newest member. While each court reporter may step in for the others when needed, each court reporter has particular areas of responsibility. Liz’s is court administration. She prepares and presents our budgets, claims and payroll to the Posey County Council, Board of Commissioners and the County Auditor. Liz also picks up the mail, prepares the next day’s files for court and transcribes testimony from court hearings.Lizzie, as only her four siblings call her, was born in Kansas City, Missouri. Her family moved to Posey County when she was twelve so her father could take the position of plant chemist with G.A.F. Liz and all of her siblings graduated from Mt. Vernon High School.“Jeff Miller,  Liz’s husband of 34 years, is a native of Savah where, according to Liz, he plans to stay until he becomes one with the soil. Jeff and Liz are members of Mt. Vernon’s First Christian Church.”Liz has been actively and deeply involved in public service in Posey County for many years. She was Co-Chair of Relay for Life 2001–2005. Liz received the Relay for Life Courage award in 2006. She has chaired the Gateway for Cancer Research Longaberger Basket BINGO every year since 2004.While Liz has numerous other public service accomplishments one of her proudest honors is being chosen one of Posey County’s Torchbearers for Indiana’s Bi-Centennial Torch Relay celebration. To commemorate 200 years of Indiana history Hoosier citizens from across our state have been nominated and selected to carry the Torch from our first State Capitol in Harrison County through all 92 counties.Liz and her fellow Posey County honorees will receive the Torch at noon on September 11, 2016 in Mt. Vernon in front of the Hovey House. She will be one of the twenty Posey County citizens who are being honored for their public service. Liz is grateful but humbled by this recognition of her dedication to helping others and promoting Indiana’s long tradition of service and progress.To those who may wonder what the court does, I submit Liz. Perhaps we can discuss other Court functions and functionaries later.last_img read more

Wigan’s prospect: Huddersfield Town’s win pushes Balogun out of relegation

first_imgLeon Balogun’s Wigan have moved clear of the English Championship relegation zone following Saturday’s 2-0 triumph at Huddersfield Town. Brighton have assured Balogun of his place A goal in each half by Jamal Lowe and Anthony Pilkington were all the Latics needed to secure maximum points at stake in West Yorkshire. Balogun – who is on loan from Premier League outfit Brighton and Hove Albion was not listed for the clash but that did no harm to Paul Cook’s side. Wigan started the game on a bright note and they carved out the encounter’s first opportunity when Nathan Byrne’s cross for Kieffer Moore fell to on-loan Everton midfielder Kieran Dowell who could not pull the trigger. The visitors’ persistence at goal paid off in the 26th minute with Moore’s cross slotted past the goal line by Lowe – his fourth of the season. Huddersfield seldom threatened however, their first chance in the 33rd minute through Juninho Bacuna’s free-kick drew an impressive save from goalkeeper David Marshall. Three minutes into the second half, Pilkington doubled the lead after profiting from Lowe’s assist. And for the remaining part of the game, no goal was recorded as Cook’s men who have now won their last three games. Loading… DR Congo forward Elias Kachunga replaced Lewis O’Brien on the hour mark for Huddersfield Town. The game was the 28-year-old’s 31st of the season with two goals to his credit. Benin Republic international Steve Mounie and Uganda’s Herbert Bockhorn were not listed for the encounter at the Kirklees Stadium. Captain Sam Morsy was on parade from start to finish for the Latics, with Cote d’Ivoire’s Cedric Kipre not available for the match as well as Nigeria’s Balogun. The Super Eagles defender struggled for game time since teaming up with the Seagulls in 2018 from German Bundesliga club Mainz 05, featuring in only 12 games across all competitions. In his quest to enjoy more action and reignite his career, he completed a loan switch to the Championship side on Transfer Deadline Day. read also:Balogun remains my preferred Super Eagles Defensive Partner–Ekong He went on social media to commend his team for their well-deserved win: “Well done lads, started right where we left off,” he tweeted. Wigan are now 17th in the Championship log having accrued 44 points from 38 games – they host Blackburn Rovers in their next outing on Saturday, while 20th placed Huddersfield Town square up against promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
