0

Last summer a reader penned me a note, asking that I write about the changes in women’s lives over the past century as a tribute to Mother’s Day. That is a fine way to consider the sweep of recent economic history. I do so through the experiences of four women—my and my wife’s grandmothers. This provides enough passage of time to fully see the immense changes of the past century and longer, while still connecting it to people we knew and loved.

The good news is that it made him very regular.

Indiana will never be known for its beaches and mountains. Though in fairness we do have a great beach at Indiana Dunes National Park in our north and some excellent sled riding hills all over our south. The state actually has a long list of beautiful outdoor amenities in every direction of it. It’s just not what non-Hoosiers think of first when it comes to us or our home.

As we’re in the midst of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6), we’re reminded that education is the foundation of our futures, and it’s brought to life through educators dedicated to helping students reach their full potential. There is research that supports the idea that education, as early as pre-K, produces profound, lifelong advantages. Education at any level offers opportunities to expand experiences, upskill in the workforce, contribute to society in new ways and so much more.
