Haunted or not, these three places give some Gibson Countians chills 1. Cockrum Hall, perhaps the most famous “haunted house” in all of Gibson County, was built in 1876.

It could be another two years before Turpin receives compensation, according to her lawyers.
“People are forgetting about it,” says 41-year-old Princeton resident Carrie Turpin. She’s one of 751 people across 20 states who received several contaminated methylprednisolone acetate injections in summer 2012. At least 64 people have died, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Turpin hasn’t yet received any compensation from the New England Compounding Company, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy at the end of 2012. She and others in the same situation don’t know when they’ll receive compensation for medical expenses and emotional distress. Her lawyers at Pritzker Olsen Attorneys in Minneapolis, Minn., say it could be another two years or longer. “What are we supposed to do for these two to four years?” Turpin asks, “If I go to work, what if I get sick?”

Over the past few months I’ve been pretty busy getting into the groove of reporting for the community newspaper. I thought I understood community news before I got here. But now I really do. The reason newspapers in small towns are often thriving while papers in big cities are diminishing […]

I suppose you’d say I was born half-Hoosier, since my Mom grew up in Indiana. Who would have dreamed that I’d end up living and working just up the road from where she spent her childhood? I’m currently reporting and shooting for Princeton Publishing, specifically for the Princeton Daily Clarion […]

My move to Paris, France was one that was unexpected and fraught with excitement. I received an internship with Citizenside.com, a global news community of citizen journalists. They are headquartered in France, right across from the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur.

My return to Inner Mongolia came at the end of February 2012, I stayed there for just under a week. My trip from Shanghai to Hohhot was rather uneventful once I switched airports with the help of our translator. When I returned to Shanghai I had to switch airports alone, […]

The Return to Mainland China, II.



:)
It happened unexpectedly. I had enough money to go and suddenly I had a round-trip flight from Nashville to Shanghai on United Airlines. I thought I wouldn’t be able to keep my promise to my family in China and visit them at the beginning of 2012. Now, I’ve learned that […]
