MAX JONES: Tough times call for lots of encouragement



There is undoubtedly plenty of advice around, and here is a chance to share your knowledge, insights and wisdom with graduates and the legions of Tribune-Star readers.

The advice can take whatever form you see fit. It can be serious, whimsical, humorous, etc. You are limited only by your imagination. Use a few words, or many words, as long as you keep your word count under 100.

We plan to use as many of your comments as possible on the weekend of Vigo County high school graduations in late May.

If you would like to submit a comment, please do so by sending via e-mail to, or to Words of Wisdom, c/o Tribune-Star, P.O. Box 149, Terre Haute IN 47808.

The deadline for receiving submissions is Friday, May 22.

We look forward to hearing from you. Area graduates do as well.

The Tribune-Star last week welcomed Lisa Meyer Trigg to our staff of news reporters.

Lisa is not a newcomer to newspapers nor to those of us who’ve been associated with this newspaper for a while. She was an intern on our reporting staff back in the mid-’80s while she was a journalism student at Indiana State University. Since leaving Terre Haute, she worked for 20 years at the Banner Graphic in Greencastle, the final three years of her tenure there as its editor.

We are extremely fortunate to have such a seasoned and experienced reporter joining us. Her skill and talent will be put to immediate use for our readers. Her primary beat will be covering police, emergency services and the courts.

Lisa holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from ISU, and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in the Women’s External Degree program at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College.
